I'm not good at debates or anything, but abortion being illegal due to religious reasons alone is such a misstep, especially for the myriad medical concerns alone.
Like I can understand the beliefs of some that life begins in the womb and all that, you are free to believe that, but it's so disingenuous to force that across people who don't share that belief.
Honestly boggles my mind.
I don't think the supreme court can remotely call itself impartial and unbiased anymore (if it ever was) making these decisions. None of these decisions they've made are in the best interest of the citizens but are clearly pushing conservative politics. Corrupt is an understatement.
The church and state haven't been separate in ages, and these are the same people using the Constitution as an arguing point every chance they get as long as it supports their agenda.
I mean, these are clearly religiously motivated to some degree. We can't forgive student debt but we can forgive the church 3 billion dollars or some odd amount; they're outright allowing Christian/Catholic businesses to discriminate against LGBTQ+ people--
I'm scared of the precedent these overturns are setting, they're just the tip of the iceberg for destroying so much civil rights progress the States have made; it always starts small.

@(you need an account to see links) Oh absolutely, as soon as the government has control over people's bodies and the agency they have over their own bodies, things have gone wrong.
I am a law graduate. Although I never entered practice
The thing that I spotted in all your arguments and that you are only looking at one side. Remeber there are two sides to every case.
I am in South Africa and I really don't keep up so sorry if this was considered.
In the case about the student loans... what about those that did pay and is now living a lower income life than they would should there debts has also be paid? Should there money also be returned?
When ever money is granted somewhere it is take somewhere ells. To give the students there debt alleviation it might mean that someone might get less medical treatment or the taxrate will need to be pushed up further.
Regarding the website developer. What about the developers right. Should we be forced to do what we are against? Everything is about freedom - you are free to practice your own religion and no one can force you into something but here you want to force the website developers. What cant they just go to someone different that has no objection?
So yea that's just my input. Remeber that everything can be argued in different directions and a legal professional need to be able to weigh different rights and think of the wider implications.
What's my definition of success?
Creating something no one else can
Being brave enough to dream big
Grindin' when you're told to just quit
Giving more when you got nothin' left
Judaism pretty strictly says that if the mother's life is at risk, she is the priority and must be able to have an abortion to save her life. It varies between denominations and probably even in families what exactly constitutes 'life-threatening' but it's pretty unanimous, and especially that a fetus is not a human until it breaches.
But yeah, basically to sate one religions teaching, they're actively suppressing other religions.
For me, my religious beliefs don't even mention or particularly care about abortion. A fetus is just kinda... there, there's no morality based on it. Even in the research I've done there's no consensus on when life begins. Personally I think life doesn't begin until the birth.
2-3-1, 23 is number 1!
#2 stinks of Westboro shit. Any business has the right to refuse service EXCEPT on the basis of race, religion, sexual preference, or gender. This should not only apply to brick and mortar establishments. Chick fil a or however it's spelled (I don't give a chicken fried fuck) can also eat a bag of dicks along with the Salvation Army.
The one good thing I will say about Activision as a former employee, was that they ALWAYS adhered to and made sure that everyone was represented and addressed by their preferred pronouns/properly represented when it came to LGBTQ+ game content. Most progressive workplace I've ever been a part of.
A handful of the people that I'm around being in a rural community are Trumpsters and it makes me insane. I do however believe in the 2nd amendment, and I'll gladly take any of my allies to the range and show them how to safely and effectively use any of the firearms tat I own and practice with every weekend. I've been in 2 physical fights in Walmart because of conservative bullies taking their shit out on LGBTQ+ people and I'll gladly defend them every day of the week. You don't have to agree with my position on firearms, but I'll defend your life with mine.
Kinda rambled a little bit there, but main takeaway is fuck these christian companies that are being allowed to do what they're doing. So much for separation of church and state.
