    The Attorney General in Alabama says he has the right under that state’s laws to prosecute people providing such transport under criminal conspiracy statutes. Your hoped for slapping won’t help, and Kavanaugh’s concurrence wont stop this.Report

    This is a lame idea. Not a bad idea, no, I can’t call it that, not when the US Government says that they should be allowed to censor true statements, if they are against the “Government Narrative.” That’s a truly horrible idea. Yes, let’s go after memes that express skepticism of vaccines (not misinformation at all, simple skepticism) — this will end well!Report

    Your periodic reminder:

    No one cares about federalism. No one cares about “states’ rights,” the compact-of-autonomous-nations theory of constitutional construction, or the Privileges and Immunities Clause.

    They only care about winning.

    You’ll spare yourself a lot of intellectual and legal gymnastics trying to understand abortion rights/denial-of-rights activity, both in and out of the courts, by accepting that there’s nothing principled about it, and it HAS to bend out to the extremes.

    So of COURSE pro-life activists are interfering with citizens’ rights to travel between the several states. Trampling upon that basic right doesn’t matter. That’s too abstract to understand. What matters is that there are fewer abortions.Report
