Polling On Roe vs Wade

Posted By Rod Kaufman

"Most Americans oppose overturning the Supreme Court's Roe vs. Wade precedent, according to a new CNN Poll conducted by SSRS, with a majority saying that if the decision was vacated, they'd want to see their own state move toward more permissive abortion laws."
"Just 30% of Americans say they'd like to see the Supreme Court completely overturn its Roe vs. Wade decision, with 69% opposed -- a finding that's largely consistent both with other recent polling and with historical trends."

Typically Hospitals run at about 93% on average for their emergency rooms and their ICUs, etc....

There is no massive overrun at these hospitals. They are used to operating at full capacity.

I worked in a hospital for a little while.  The bullshit that is peddled by the left to fear monger those terrified out there, is at this point legendary.  

Just pathetic.  
And that's why we've got different hospitals in different states operating under crisis of care standards:

Nutzoid, Try legal abortions and the rest is not exactly what I stated, either but it's close enough...wink

Fortunately, the Court will not consider popular opinion - they'll consider the constitutional underpinnings of Roe, and reach their conclusions.  I think this is true for the liberal and conservative wings of the court both.  Their constitutional analysis will vary dramatically, depending upon their school of approach to constitutional law.

This raises an interesting point, I think.  Some think that an originalist approach like that employed by Scalia or Thomas is the only valid and proper approach.  Opposite hard-liners on the left think a more dynamic interpretation such as used by Sotomayor or to a lesser extent RGB is the only valid and proper approach.  Actually, both are valid approaches that have strengths and weaknesses.  This is why actual court opinions are so complex and interesting.  

Many states already have permissive abortion laws.  Some do not.  I personally think this is appropriate.  Let the states decide.  If Roe is overturned and this issue is kicked back to the states, I would expect more pro-choice state legislatures over time and more permissive state laws over time.  Overturning Roe, could be the motivation for Texas turning blue for example.  Hard to tell.
In general, I agree with much of what you've stated. However, when you state, "they'll consider the constitutional underpinnings of Roe, and reach their conclusions", I think that applies to some of the members of the court but not to all of them. Take Clarence for example, he's already reached his conclusions without hearing anything.
If you've followed the annihilation of Trump's legal case regarding his perceived executive privilege over records, you'll know that a district court, a court of appeals and the supreme court including all three of Trump's appointees unanimously concluded Trump's arguments were obviously baseless. ONE, Clarence, thought Trump had a  case would have sided with him and said so in public. Clarence isn't a conservative judge. He's a partisan, far right wing advocate who had already made up his mind before he ever heard the arguments on the abortion cases currently being decided by the court. I don't think Goursuck is too far behind him but at least he'll go through the pretenses of hearing and deciding the arguments made before him. I don't think Clarence even needs to show up since everybody knows what his opinion will be...

True enough but at least they cite precedents on abortion laws while the others ignore them...

Rather than viewing it from context of either Darian or Davis, I'd defer to the statements from the American Psychiatric Association:

A Very Prominent Lib RIPS Joe Biden as a complete disaster.

Two years ago today, January 22 2020, Donald Trump said this about the pandemic, "We have it totally under control."
Mel probably believed in that delusion, too. I wonder if Mel believes in this fact: "In the national popular vote, Biden received 81.2 million votes and Trump received 74.2 million votes."  https://ballotpedia.org/Presidential_election,_2020
Or, does he believe that Biden didn't get roughly 6 million votes more than Trump like the other cons on the forum do? Does Mel share in the delusion that the election was stolen like the majority of Trumptoids do? 
Let's see his answers to those questions so we can determine how far gone he may be...
