Supreme Court redemption arc?!?!

From Fox News, "Supreme Court overturns Roe v. Wade in landmark abortion decision":
The Supreme Court on Friday overturned Roe v. Wade, effectively ending recognition of a constitutional right to abortion and giving individual states the power to allow, limit, or ban the practice altogether.

The ruling came in the court's opinion in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, which centered on a Mississippi law that banned abortion after 15 weeks of pregnancy. The Republican-led state of Mississippi asked the Supreme Court to strike down a lower court ruling that stopped the 15-week abortion ban from taking place.

"We end this opinion where we began. Abortion presents a profound moral question. The Constitution does not prohibit the citizens of each State from regulating or prohibiting abortion. Roe and Casey arrogated that authority. We now overrule those decisions and return that authority to the people and their elected representatives," Justice Samuel Alito wrote in the court's opinion.

Alito's opinion began with an exploration and criticism of Roe v. Wade and its holding that while states have "a legitimate interest in protecting ‘potential life,'' this interest was not strong enough to prohibit abortions before the time of fetal viability, understood to be at about 23 weeks into pregnancy.
"The vote to overturn Roe was 5-4," SCOTUS Blog reports. "Justices Clarence Thomas, Neil Gorsuch, Brett Kavanaugh, and Amy Coney Barrett joined Alito's opinion. Chief Justice John Roberts did not join the opinion. He agreed with the majority that the Mississippi abortion restriction at issue in the case should be upheld, but in a separate opinion, he argued that the court should not have overturned Roe."

"The court's three liberals -- Justices Stephen Breyer, Sonia Sotomayor, and Elena Kagan -- filed a joint dissent They called the majority opinion a violation of women's autonomy and said it would harm the court's legitimacy and jeopardize other constitutional rights," SCOTUS Blog said.

How funny would it be if the 15 GOP senators who just sold their constituents out on gun control threw together a "common sense" bill to relegalize abortion nationwide?

It's pretty funny that with this news breaking we know for certain none of the Republicans who backed the gun control bill are going to get one bit of credit from leftoids for their colossal sellout.

You have to go back.

We're back!
