ALL Votes Matter. Supreme Court Appears Sharply Divided as It Hears Texas Abortion Case.

Should you choose to NOT vote for Dem nominee, I don't really care. It's your vote. In a purple state where ALL votes matter…every single one….not voting for the Dem ticket won't just have an effect on you, it will have an effect for millions of people depending on social justice and economic security in the coming years and for generations to come. Not voting for Dem ticket in a purple state is the act of an Ayn Randian who can't see past their own feelings and needs.

IMO, of course.


Supreme Court Appears Sharply Divided as It Hears Texas Abortion Case

WASHINGTON — The Supreme Court on Wednesday appeared sharply and perhaps evenly divided in its first major abortion case in almost a decade, one that has the potential to revise constitutional standards and to affect millions of women.

Several justices seemed frustrated by gaps in the factual record presented to them. The three more conservative justices said there was little evidence that clinics have closed or would close because of the law.

Justice Anthony M. Kennedy, who almost certainly holds the crucial vote, mused that it might be useful to return the case to the lower courts to develop more evidence. He said it would help to know how many abortions could be performed in the clinics that would remain open if a restrictive Texas law was allowed to become fully effective.

The court’s four liberal justices were adamant that the restrictions imposed by the law served no medical purpose and cannot pass constitutional muster.
