This is a bit of good news today:
- Nearly six in 10 Americans do not want Roe v. Wade overturned
- Republicans are closely split on reversing the landmark decision
- Bans on early-term abortions fall short of U.S. public support
It’s a Gallop poll, so probably pretty reliable, but as we know John Roberts is only calling balls and strikes, and I’m sure the 6
members of Opus Dei will tighten their cilices, er, conservative justices will go into whatever the latest abortion challenge is with their oath of office in their minds and their fingers crossed behind their backs (which is totally legal, I’m told, to avoid becoming liars). At any rate, the Justices seem immune from public pressure and answer to no one except the RNC. Oops!
Everyone (us included) has been so focused on saving our democracy that we have missed saving Justice. I don’t feel good about this.
UPDATE 1: SCOTUS related (H/T Scissorhead M Davis) –
UPDATE 2: yup –
