Forever Gone

We are seeing all these anti-abortion bills pass in Alabama, Missouri, etc precisely because abortion decisively won the battle. These bills are empty, meaningless salutes to the world that is gone forever.

So I don’t know what the hell we are being so dramatic about. People’s capacity to refight ancient, outdated battles in the world that poses a completely new set of challenges is the only constant we can count on.

  1. These state legislatures are deliberately passing over-the-top laws that they know will get blocked by federal courts. Their goal have one of these laws contested all the way up to the Supreme Court, where they fantasize that Roe v. Wade will finally be overturned.

    That’s not going to happen. The Supreme Court doesn’t want to address that issue directly, and will probably decide just to let lower court decisions blocking the extreme laws stand.
