The cowardice of their convictions


One way to tell that Roe v. Wade is overwhelmingly popular is by looking at public opinion polls. Another way to tell is how conservatives continue to deny that the judges they support have any intention of overruling Roe, a shell game that has continued even after they’ve done it:

Yup, right, if California had passed a law creating a $10,000 civil bounty for anyone who successfully sues someone for violating the state’s new ban on all handguns, the Court would totally have allowed the law to go into effect because this was just a narrow procedural holding. Even Noah Feldman agrees!

Amazingly, Fox News spent most of the day ignoring this altogether:
