It's a better day already

I was worried about this. It was a relief to get the ruling and see that it went the way I thought it should. It is terrifying and depressing when Freedom and Liberty and Rights are eroded just because it so happens that it is a woman's Freedom, Liberty and Rights in question.

The opinions are worth a look:

A lot of the losing argument is really offensively technical, imo (res judicata). It feels like the conservative side grasped at straws through this whole process.

I look toward the future with more optimism for women having to make difficult decisions. This will be one less thing dragging them down.
