Here it comes. Now that Mitch McConnell has stolen one Supreme Court seat and filled two more with Heritage Foundation/Federalist Society loyalists, NOW they're taking a major abortion case.

They've been sitting on this case for eight months, waiting for their majority moment. Jackson Women’s Health Organization v. Dobbs declares a 15-week gestational ban on abortion. Until Amy Coney Barrett arrived on the high court, such a ban was deemed unconstitutional.

This case has been tee'd up, specifically and on purpose, now that Barrett sits in a SCOTUS seat.

We MUST un-pack the court by adding justices who are not beholden to right wing nut jobs.

Angry Black Lady read the room last October. Worth the click.

Can you help us out?
