Someone else noticed, too.
It is very hard to overstate how significant this moment is. The US is about to join the very short list of countries that have restricted existing abortion rights since the 1990s – the overall trend internationally certainly has been towards a liberalization of abortion laws. And it’s also a basically unique development in US history: while the supreme court has often upheld and codified a discriminatory status quo, it has never actively and officially abolished what had previously been recognized as a constitutionally guaranteed right.
Mitch McConnell, for his part, seems to think that a national abortion ban is on the table if Roe v. Wade is overturned.
The Democrats will save us, of course, except that the economy will sink them as an issue, and the Supreme Court doesn't look as if it will save them from the bad outcome typical of politicians (let's start with Herbert Hoover) who try to run on a bad economy.
Regression is on the agenda.
