are they trying to end abortion, or discredit the supreme court?

i do believe that these bans are being passed in order to get roe before the court again.
not out of love for the unborn, but as a pull-out-all-the-stops to keep the base wound up.

but what if they fail? what if roe is not only upheld but strengthened. or even if it is upheld, but narrowed. then what?

then they get to go on a jihad about the sc, which they have their hooks well into, but which still has truth tellers.
even when you have the majority, if the descents are comparing you to pol pot and satan, what do you do about that?
they need to do something to smear the liberals on the court, and it would cause them not a second's thought to smear the whole institution to do it.

if roberts vote to uphold roe, they will be able to paint it as- not political, no connection to politics here. see, we hate them all.

seems like quite the win/win for them.

2. They know the fix is in.

They where just waiting for Kennedy to leave and Kavanaugh to be confirmed.

3. Just saw clip of Pat Robertson on MSNBC. He said Alabama law would face tough go in US Supreme Court

because it goes too far -- criminal penalties, no exception for rape and incest.

4. i think part of this may be about shifting the window.

maybe they think they can be so draconian, then when they take it half way back, we'll be grateful and the base will get something.
