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.

Conservatives won't be satisfied until abortion is banned entirely. I'm not be knee jerk anti-conservative either. This is just intrinsic to their basic values. I think a national ban will be far MORE difficult, perhaps even to the point of unfeasibility, but that's certainly the goal.

P.S. and I very much agree btw that the history of the SCOTUS is that it's been more often regressive than otherwise, and what a surprise that a group of unaccountable legal minds immune to political pressure would find themselves out the other side of the interests of the people.
