Trump pulled another move today to test the limits of his power.

IM very confused how Alabama is able to ban abortion. Wouldn’t Roe v. Wade have to be overturned for that to be allowed?

It will be challenged in court. Obviously.

The controlling precedent is Planned Parenthood v Casey which one could argue overruled Roe and instituted the "undue burden" test.

The rationale behind the law was to challenge Planned Parenthood v Casey. Some on the pro life side think it may go too far. Not because they disagree with the law, but that Roberts and Kavanaugh will re-enforce PP v Casey with that law being the one that goes up. Only Thomas is a certainty to strike down that case as he dissented from it at the onset.

Post Casey,the right has been more incrementalist in it's approach. For example, challenges to partial birth abortion

It'll be deeply hilarious when everyone praises Kavanaugh.

They're perfectly aware the law is unconstitutional. They're doing it so it will be appealed and can get to the Supreme Court, where they're sure they're going to win since the Republicans refused to put Obama's nominee on and they were able to get their lying frat boy on there.

The law is only unconstitutional if you agree with Roe v. Wade. But as it stands, Roe v. Wade is the law of the land, so yes it will almost certainly be appealed.

"The law is only unconstitutional is you agree with the law" is a thing you just said.

Yeah I don’t agree with every law, but I follow them.

Warren is, and has been, performing at a level not since since Obama in 2007/2008. No prisoners destruction. Seriously wondering if/when Sanders supporters will get in line behind her, at which point she may very well defeat Biden fair and square.

They put Liz on Night 1 without Bernie and Biden. That’s a huge burn - though I think she could spin it into a positive.

Andrew Yang’s appearance on Bill Maher was really good. He actually outlined some specifics of his plans rather than pandering.
