This is not hyperbole. Roe v. Wade Is Under Immediate Threat (Slate). Roe could effectively be overturned on Monday. This is a direct result of conservative gerrymandering of the judiciary. It could, in fact, be the beginning of the end of civil rights in the United States. Again, that is not an exaggeration.

When you give in to fascist rule you often give up certain freedoms and liberties. Those who chose this fascist regime are cheering wildly at the thought of overturning Roe vs Wade.

Supreme Court temporarily halts Louisiana abortion law (politico). No reason to celebrate, yet.

So who's celebrating? It was a minor skirmish in a long war.

In a move that surprises exactly no one Brett Kavanaugh Just Declared War on Roe v. Wade (Slate). It is good that the full court did not take the 5th Circuit's challenge to its authority lightly, and kept the stay in place, but given Chief Justice Roberts' previous dissent in Whole Woman’s Health v. Hellerstedt (link, PDF), it may just be a year before Roe is overturned, or at last effectively so.

Don't conservatives start with God as their source for legal opinions? The Constitution is always a distant second for these folks. Imagine how they would fell if there was a large Muslim footprint in political power and their inspiration was the Quran.

I am partial to public beheadings. Who knows maybe it would catch on with the Christian fundamentalists.

Is that "by" or "of"?
