At this point it’s hard to be surprised (or even shocked) by much of anything happening in the US anymore. And it’s downright absurd to lament how passing Roe v Wade divided the country … as if overturning it isn’t gonna be more divisive.

Somewhat ironically, it seems like there is going to be a nationwide push now to ban all abortions at the federal level. Which would turn the states rights aspect on its head that most of these groups have pushed for decades.

If the reasoning that has been released is accurate, it also indicates that things like the decisions legalizing sodimy and gay marriage are also potentially on the chopping block according to Alito and the court majority. Also potentially birth control, as I would imagine those are the next culture war court cases and with a very conservative majority they are likely to fall since this group has a very narrow view of the Constitution when it suits them.

I know judicial activism is usually defined as decisions you do not agree with but that would potentially allow major intrusions and just sort of continues a wish list of priorities for some groups at the detriment of many others.

It is a shame for sure and it is probably going to get worse. Although historically the Supreme Court has mostly helped those with power and in power as opposed to common people. So it is hardly surprising either.
