The Court giveth and the Court taketh away. Blessed be the name of the Court.

Golly, it sounds like Justice Thomas wants to use the privileges and immunities clause to expand our rights! That will be swell.— AnyAndAllThingsHat (@Popehat) June 24, 2022
It doesn't exacly fit on a bumper sticker, but expect that to resonate in November.
From the joint dissent in Dobbs: The majority "says that from the very moment of fertilization, a woman has no rights to speak of. A State can force her to bring a pregnancy to term, even at the steepest personal and familial costs."— Steve Vladeck (@steve_vladeck) June 24, 2022

Many criminal defense attorneys are going to need to learn more about pregnancy, as we begin to defend women who miscarry or misbehave while pregnant.— Andrew Fleischman (@ASFleischman) June 24, 2022

Yesterday's decision on Miranda looks to set it up for later overruling, along with the exclusionary rule and other protections.
The reactionaries of the court are running free and wild. The rest of us are the grass to be trampled.
