Very happy. I think Republicans are going to try to be Very Very Busy with other topics. Abortion has turned toxic for them.

It was interesting watching some Republicans cheer about the overturning of Roe v. Wade, when that decision is more than likely a huge part of the reason they lost the Senate in midterms. Talk about a double-edged sword.

The MSM is eager to blame this on Trump's wild behavior or Jan 6. None of that was enough to galvanize countless newly registered voters.

They had everything going for them. The economy sucks, Biden is not popular, and Americans have short memories. The polls were mostly done before the overturn, and MAGA was over-polled.

Abortion made the difference.

Neither side is ready to admit that.

Abortion made the difference.

Absolutely. It's crazy how both sides deny the elephant in the room, but it's all about numbers. That one singular policy Roe v. Wade affects, at the bare minimum, more than half the population of the United States - almost 168 million women. Regardless of whether or not they agree with the decision. That is a HUGE number, and why people don't see how that affects voting is beyond me. It's like people forget women exist or something. Lol.

I’m most surprised the ACLU was involved in the case. What a distraction for them!

Very good news. I hope the appeal fails. What do US Ovaristas think about the reasoning - that it was enacted when Roe was still in force?

Andrew Isenhour, a spokesperson for Republican Gov. Brian Kemp, said McBurney’s ruling placed “the personal beliefs of a judge over the will of the legislature and people of Georgia." “The state has already filed a notice of appeal, and we will continue to fight for the lives of Georgia’s unborn children,” he said in a statement. Rep. Ed Setzler, the Republican from Atlanta suburb of Acworth who sponsored the law, said he was confident the state Supreme Court would overrule McBurney and reinstate the ban.

And just a reminder that the day you become pregnant you are already considered 2 weeks along, because they count it from the date of your last period. at "4 weeks" you expected your period (if it is regular). At about "5 weeks" you take that pregnancy test.
