The Supreme Court will take up the Texas abortion law on the merits next month in a rare highly-expedited case that could definitively resolve the fate of its six-week ban and unprecedented enforcement mechanism.

Let's see how a bunch of right wing justices are going to screw us all over on this one. Judicial Dishonesty Alert is at maximum.

We'll likely learn how vigilante justice is a good thing afterall.

Bounty hunters will become the norm for legal enforcement as a constitutional work around.

Judicial activisim will be the new way to curcumvent constitutional restraints on legal discretion by legislatures.

The right wing justices will call this non partisan and a correct application of law.

The supreme court is a travesty. They create law,from the bench. They are not going keep any semblance of impartiality or even simple fairness. This will weaken our freedoms even more than they are already.

Our republic is dying a death of a thousand cuts.

I don't think there was ever any doubt about it. The USSC said so themselves back when they dismissed the injunction on technical grounds.

People paid money for this.

The SCOTUS will shoot this law down. They cannot countenance vigilante justice. The drafters of this law were too clever by half by including the provision that this law would be enforced by private citizens filing lawsuits, and the Supremes will certainly recognize that allowing this to stand will cause all manner of copycat laws to be enacted, with the bounty mechanism included far and wide, from civil to criminal statutes. Civil caseloads in US courts are bad enough as it is, and the chaos that this and similar laws will create will break the US court system.

The liberal justices on SCOTUS, as well as states and abortion providers, will soon also recognize that abortion procedures could soon be segregated to Blue states, thus depriving many women to access to abortion. The consequences will include more unwanted babies and further poverty among those with another mouth to feed. I guess those children can all be shipped off to Red states, where the government will show those children the back of the state's hand...

You have more faith in the court than I do. I see bounty hunters becoming the norm, as a way to evade constitutional issues. The court may well embrace this monstrosity as a way to get things done they hitherto have not been able to.

Our system of checks and balances has been weakened to the point that this previously unthinkable outcome is actually quite possible.

Many people on the right would celebrate this.

I can't think of a worse development in our legal system if this crap is allowed to stand.

Of course it will be knocked down, BUT......

the devil will be in the details of HOW it will be knocked down.

Look for the term standing in how the court knocks it down.

The goal of the Texas law all along was to redefine who has standing in abortion cases.

I wouldn't count on it.

Not just abortion. Standing in general will be weakened. Everyone will be able to claim injury in a whole variety of cases that they cannot do so now. This is meant to expand the reach of law into everything; even private legal conduct the aggrieved disagree with. Busybodys are being given the keys to the courthouse to evade constitutional constraints on the states and their lawmakers.

Environmental laws and protections will be next, just watch. Dumbasses claiming their right to cheap goods will survto stop environmental reviews and mitigations. The whole concept to private and public will be blurred beyond recognition.

Yeah, just look at the censorship that's taken place over the last 9 months. It's a travesty I tell you. Funny thing is, the looney left doesn't care about any of it until it tramples whats dear to them.
