    “Religious liberty,” they keep using that word. I do not think it means what they think it means.Report

    One has to remember that the SCOTUS ruling on the Louisiana abortion law wasn’t on the merits per se – Roberts essentially wrote that Louisiana hadn’t presented any novel arguments that would force the court to overturn its decision Re Texas the year before. It was a procedural ruling that basically told the ALEC guys and their allies to go write different laws and bring them forward via the courts. It is at best a stay in the ongoing proceeding, nothing more.Report

      Exactly. It simply preserves a status quo that is already pretty hostile to reproductive rights–and provides ample room for abortion opponents to come up with “new” laws to test Roe.Report
