“JACKSON, Miss. — A federal judge is temporarily blocking a Mississippi law that would ban most abortions once a fetal heartbeat is detected.
U.S. District Judge Carlton Reeves on Friday issued an order to stop the law from taking effect July 1.
He heard arguments Tuesday from attorneys for the state’s only abortion clinic, who said the law would effectively eliminate all abortions in the state because cardiac activity is often first detectable around six weeks, when many women may not know they are pregnant. …”
I’m bored to tears by the abortion debate.
Everyone knows that federal judges are going to block the abortion bans in Mississippi, Georgia, Alabama and Missouri. It is also virtually certain that the “conservative majority” on the Supreme Court we have heard so much about is going to concoct some bullshit reason to sustain Roe v. Wade. I’m convinced it is nothing but one big exercise in the usual political theater by conservatives to milk the evangelicals by pretending they are fighting for the “social issues.”
If we must have the federal government, I would rather just collect the $1,000 a month because when the dust settles in this fight I don’t expect anything to change. I feel the same way about immigration which is hitting new record highs after Blompf’s “strong on the border” 2016 campaign. Conservatives have never won on a single social issue and it won’t start happening anytime soon.
Note: In reality, the only way these states will ever ban abortion is after dissolving the Union. I honestly don’t see it happening any other way.
