On Friday, after the court allowed Texas' ban on abortion after six weeks -- a law that is in direct conflict with Roe v. Wade -- to remain in place, she was straightforward. "The impact," she wrote, "is catastrophic."

On Friday, for her part, Sotomayor pointed out that even though the court had agreed to fast track oral arguments for November 1, that would offer "cold comfort" to women in Texas seeing abortion care.

She said that women seeking abortion care were entitled to relief from the court, but now, the relief, even if it comes after the court hears oral arguments in November "will be too late for many."

"Once again, I dissent."

"Once again, I dissent."

The required context:

These circumstances are exceptional. Women seeking abortion care in Texas are entitled to relief from this Court now. Because of the Court's failure to act today, that relief, if it comes, will be too late for many. Once again, I dissent. www.supremecourt.gov
Yes the circumstances are exceptional. Yes women in Texas are should be afforded relief and action.

Yet, neither Justice Sotomayor nor her fellow dissenter's in the other case a few weeks ago describe the relief or action the Court should take. Many trees killed and nothing about what to do.

That's the conundrum presented by this state statute. The slippery slope is the kicker.

By all accounts she's a very nice lady and one of the most partisan justices to have ever served. In a partisan case has she ever deviated from the left/Democrat position?

With a 6 to 3 Republican majority on the Court I'm afraid that she's going to be dissenting for a long time.

Can you honestly say that you dont think the texas law was written as a loophole around a previous supreme court decision?
