With its argument, understand that Mississippi is arguing to overturn Roe and Casey (abortion), Griswold (contraception), Lawrence (right to be gay), Obergefell (marriage equality), Bostock (right to be trans at work), and Loving (right to an interracial marriage) IN ONE CASE

That's what upending bodily autonomy, privacy, and substantive due process rights would mean, and Mississippi isn't shy about it either.

@Ring_Sheryl A lot of people talk about this court having been assembled to end Roe, but that is only an aspect of it; this court was assembled to end the Civil Rights Era.

Well this blew up as people doomscroll, I guess. Whilst you're here, consider joining my fight for trans equality in Illinois.

This #Hanukkah , we celebrate the victory of good over evil, even when evil is powerful and good is not. I'd like to tell you about my personal Hanukkah story, which I'm fighting against @illinoiscourts right now.

@Ring_Sheryl Do we need to just check in at the jail or go on the run?

@Ring_Sheryl Legal sage, help me to understand. If a fetus has an interest to live independent of viability, what about, a person dying of kidney failure for whom I am a donor match? That person is unambiguously a full human, and critically needs something from my body to live. Can I say no?

@AmanTooMuch Well that depends. What does the New Testament say? That seems to be how SCOTUS decides things now.
