This is the first half of my presentation to Professor Rory Ryan's Federal Courts class at Baylor Law School, about SB8, on November 23, 2021. The presentation addresses four issues raised in the litigation about the law: (1) sovereign immunity as defined by Ex Parte Young,(2) standing (both to sue about SB8, and under it), (3) whether Texas avoided "state action" (and with it, the federal civil-rights laws) by its delegation of enforcement to private citizens, and (4) limits on federal-court power to enjoin an unconstitutional law, especially as stated by In Re Debs.This episode has the introduction and the discussion of the first topic about Young. PLEASE NOTE that there are occasional short skips in the recording, especially at the very start, but they do not interfere with the flow of the presentations.

From Texas to Mississippi: Roe is in Trouble at SCOTUS

(note recorded before the oral arguments in Texas case)On Monday, November 1st, 2021, the Supreme Court heard arguments on Texas's extreme and dangerous abortion ban, SB8. Ianthe Metzger, Director of State Media Campaigns with the Planned Parenthood Federation of America, sits down to talk with us about abortion access in Texas, the Texas SCOTUS case, and the upcoming Mississippi case in December that could threaten the very foundation of Roe v. Wade.Currently, in Texas, the state has continued to maintain its six-week abortion ban, SB8. The law is particularly unique in that it allows anyone to be able to sue those who assist in the provision or accessing of abortion care. To learn more in depth about Texas's law, find rePROs Fight Back's podcast episode here. The U.S. Department of Justice has brought the case to the Supreme Court, which will have, at the airing of this podcast episode, been heard on Monday, November 1st, 2021. During the hearings, the Court will be considering whether the federal government has the right to sue to block a state's enforcement of such a law. Additionally, the Court will be assessing the specifics of the enforcement structure in a case brought by abortion providers. On December 1st, 2021, the Supreme Court will be hearing Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health Organization. The law will be brought in front of the Court by the Center for Reproductive Rights in an effort to challenge Mississippi's fifteen-week abortion ban that is currently blocked from going into effect. The state of Mississippi has explicitly asked the Supreme Court to overturn Roe v. Wade, the 1973 decision guaranteeing the constitutional right to abortion. Allowing this law to go into effect would overturn the core holding of Roe and will no doubt open the floodgates to allow similar states to pass restrictive abortion legislation. In fact, 26 states are currently poised to ban abortion if Roe is overturned, possibly affecting 36 million women, trans men, and nonbinary folk's access to abortion care.  If Roe v. Wade were to be overturned, patients in those 26 states will face decreased or nonexistent access to abortion care, be forced to travel hundreds of miles to visit an abortion provider, and place additional strain on the abortion clinics in states that will see an increase in out-of-state patient visits. It would also place an enormous, additional emotional weight on the staff of reproductive health clinics. It's important to remember that Roe v. Wade is the floor, not the ceiling. Abortion access is, for so may around the country, a right on paper only. That being said, Roe is an important safeguard for abortion's constitutionality and continued access. The Women's Health Protection Act (WHPA) would secure abortion access across the U.S. and protect against laws like Texas's SB8-- and it has already passed the House of Representatives. With passage of legislation like WHPA abortion care will be better safeguarded in the U.S. LinksPlanned Parenthood Federation of America on TwitterPlanned Parenthood Federation of America on FacebookSupport the show (https://www.reprosfightback.com/take-action#donate)

262: Supreme Court Surprise - Speeds Up Review of State Abortion Law

Life Matters

In this episode of Life Matters, Brian Johnston examines, in-depth, the surprising news that the Supreme Court is accelerating its review of Roe versus Wade. November 1, 2021 the Supreme Court has agreed to hear oral arguments in the case of the new Texas law known as the “Heartbeat Bill”. Abortion radicals are deeply alarmed at the impact of allowing the Texas measure to stay in affect, which the Supreme Court has done up until this point. The Biden administration, fulfilling its loyalty to the abortion industry, has pledged to use every aspect of the federal government to stop this Texas measure. The passionate desire to overturn the Texas law has precipitated the Justice Department to not only request a full hearing on the Texas measure immediately, they have specifically requested a ruling on the possibility that it may lead to the overturn of Roe versus Wade. In addition to establishing a beating human heart as a definitive, objective measure of the presence of a human life, the Texas bill (SB 8) also allows private individuals to sue abortionists. This novel approach of individual civil actions has brought great alarm and consternation to the abortion industry. This aspect has been grossly mischaracterized and maligned by the media and the abortion industry. Private civil action will need to be assessed by local judges, and the propriety of individual litigants is always determined by local judges. Abortion advocates assert that the law will spawn nuisance lawsuits.   But ‘nuisance lawsuits' are, in fact, relatively common in normal civil court already. These courts stand ready to determine appropriate litigation. Determining the individual's propriety as litigant is one of the first duties of local civil courts.  Finally, the state's compelling interest to protect individual lives emanates from the undergirding principle in normal society that stronger individuals have a moral duty to protect those who cannot protect themselves. The 10th Amendment clearly outlines the rights and responsibilities of the federal government as emanating from the originating rights of the individual, and the individual states.   The federal government's duties are, in fact, a reflection of more primordial rights and duties of human beings. As such, the authority of the government, is in fact, a reflection of the inherent authority and rights of the individual.

Our society is increasingly degrading human beings full of life to means toward the end of productivity. This season, we want to identify and address pro-abortion messaging that degrades women and erodes each person's understanding of the value of his or her life. In the weeks since Texas's heartbeat bill has passed, pro-life efforts have taken a prominent place in the media. In a hearing on SB8 last week, a Texas state rep boldly claimed that parenting prevents a woman's success, and even her destiny. This presumption sounds outlandish, but it is widely accepted and affirmed, leading to a corrupted definition of success in our society. Today, we want to make a case against the message presented by Donna Howard. Motherhood, fatherhood, and family are building blocks of a thriving nation, not an outdated norm.

Happy Birthday to my little sister! news@CrossPolitic.com Join our Business network: www.FLFnetwork.com/business Join our club. Memorandum: Enforcing reproductive responsibility among men https://www.legis.state.pa.us/cfdocs/legis/csm/showmemopublic.cfm?chamber=h&spick=20210&cosponid=36286&mobile_choice=suppress To: All House members Subject: Enforcing reproductive responsibility among men “For far too long, the public debate around abortion, contraception and related reproductive matters has thrust government into the center of restrictions on the bodily autonomy of women and girls. Rarely is there a meaningful dialogue around public policy focusing on the personal responsibility of cisgender men in this sphere. The rights of cisgender men have always been paramount in our society with little focus on their responsibility as inseminators to change their behaviors for the good of their partners, families, and society at large. As we head toward climax on this heated discourse around this delicate matter, we should come together to address it with surgical precision. We must also commit to mending the social fabric being sliced up by bitter acrimony. In order to improve public health outcomes and release sweet justice into our households and bedrooms, we must wrap our love of individual liberty in the moral imperative of greater personal responsibility and acknowledge men's essential role in procreation. Therefore, I will be introducing legislation that will require all inseminators to undergo vasectomies within 6 weeks from having their third child or 40th birthday, whichever comes first. Further, this legislation will allow Pennsylvanians to take civil action for unwanted pregnancies against inseminators who wrongfully conceive a child with them. This legislation will also empower Pennsylvanians to enforce this new law by offering a $10,000 reward for reporting to the proper authorities those scofflaws who have not complied with this statute within the allotted timeframe. As long as state legislatures continue to restrict the reproductive rights of cis women, trans men and non-binary people, there should be laws that address the responsibility of men who impregnate them. Thus, my bill will also codify “wrongful conception” to include when a person has demonstrated negligence toward preventing conception during intercourse. What's good for the goose is good for the gander! In the spirit of this popular axiom, I encourage my colleagues to take a gander at this forthcoming bill that seeks to end this egregiously gendered double standard for the benefit of all individuals, our families and our great commonwealth.” Texas Supreme Court Denies Planned Parenthood Challenge to Heartbeat Law https://www.texastribune.org/2021/10/04/texas-supreme-court-abortion-lawsuit/ “The Texas Supreme Court denied a request Monday from Planned Parenthood to resume its lawsuit, filed in a state district court, that challenges the state's near-total abortion ban. Planned Parenthood asked the all-Republican court last week to overturn the Texas Multidistrict Litigation Panel's decision to indefinitely pause its suit alongside 13 other lawsuits filed in Travis County district court. The panel of five judges stopped the cases from continuing at the request of Texas Right to Life, a prominent anti-abortion organization that helped draft Texas' abortion restrictions. “The Texas Supreme Court's decision to allow the stay to remain in effect is extremely disappointing and will likely deprive Planned Parenthood of its day in court, once again,” Helene Krasnoff, Planned Parenthood's vice president for public policy litigation and law, said in a statement. Elizabeth Myers, a Dallas-based attorney who represents plaintiffs for the other 13 lawsuits blocked, said Monday's ruling was disappointing, but she called the stay a temporary setback. “We'll present our arguments and the defendants will ultimately have to attempt to defend SB8 on the merits,” Myers said. “That is something the defendants are obviously scared and unwilling to do, so it's not surprising that they continue to try to delay it. At some point, their delay tactics will no longer work and our clients look forward to that day.” These lawsuits are not the only legal challenges to the state's abortion law, commonly known as Senate Bill 8. Abortion providers, doctors, women's rights groups and even the U.S. government are battling to overturn the law in federal courts. A federal appeals court is set to hold a hearing in December in one lawsuit aimed at overturning the restrictions. A federal judge is also expected to issue an order soon on whether to temporarily block enforcement of Texas' abortion law as part of a U.S. Justice Department lawsuit filed after the Biden administration vowed to challenge the statute. Also on Monday, the Biden administration reversed a 2018 decision by former President Donald Trump that disallows family planning clinics from receiving federal funding if they provide abortion referrals. Texas' near-total abortion ban has been in effect for more than a month, even as abortion providers, doctors, women's rights groups and the U.S. government have sought to block its enforcement. The statute bars abortions after approximately six weeks of pregnancy, before many know they're pregnant. Meanwhile, most abortions in the state — experts estimate more than 85% — have ceased, and some abortion clinics have stopped offering the procedure altogether.” Facebook Whistleblower wants more government regulation over Facebook: Facebook data scientist and now whistleblower, which she apparently leans far left, Frances Haugen told Congress on Wednesday that she thinks the government can fix Facebook. Roll clip: https://www.facebook.com/newsmax/videos/389524386113734 Government took action (public health): 4:15-5:20 Appreciate the government: 8:20 Now according to the AP: https://apnews.com/article/facebook-frances-haugen-congress-testimony-af86188337d25b179153b973754b71a4?utm_source=Twitter&utm_medium=AP&utm_campaign=SocialFlow “Democrats and Republicans on the committee said Tuesday's hearing showed the need for new regulations that would change how Facebook targets users and amplifies content. Such efforts have long failed in Washington, but several senators said Haugen's testimony might be the catalyst for change. “Our differences are very minor, or they seem very minor in the face of the revelations that we've now seen, so I'm hoping we can move forward,” said Sen. Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn., the panel's chairman. Still, Democratic Sen. Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota acknowledged that Facebook and other tech companies wield a lot of power in the nation's capital, power that has blocked reforms in the past. “There are lobbyists around every single corner of this building that have been hired by the tech industry,” Klobuchar said. “Facebook and the other tech companies are throwing a bunch of money around this town and people are listening to them.”” See how much Covid-19 relief money health care providers in your state got “Congress set up a massive, $178 billion fund in 2020 meant to help mitigate the impacts of the Covid-19 pandemic on health care providers, known as the Provider Relief Fund. The Trump and Biden administrations haven't always been reliable about sending out the money — or sending it on time. But STAT's new analysis of a Health and Human Services database of the money reveals where it's flowing and who has received the most so far. By far, the largest payments were made to the nation's biggest hospital systems. Fully five of the top 10 recipients of cash were New York City-area hospitals or health systems; together, they received some $3.1 billion. The New York and Presbyterian Hospital (usually styled “NewYork-Presbyterian”) alone brought in $631 million, topped only by the $1.2 billion that went to the New York City Health and Hospitals Corporation, a group that operates New York City's sprawling system of public hospitals and clinics.” My hospital, in little old Moscow Idaho, has received just north of $5M of COVID relief. How is it possible that in the middle of a pandemic, where our country is flush with health insurance, government backed (socialistic healthcare) programs, why do our hospitals need more government money? With new clients flooding our hospitals, wouldn't our hospitals have more money? Closing This is Gabriel Rench with Crosspolitic News.

Trust Women Wichita is a clinic in Kansas that has long been a lightning rod in the abortion wars. Its former director, George Tiller, was assassinated in 2009 by an antiabortion extremist, and the clinic closed for years because of that.Since it reopened in 2013, the clinic slowly became known as a place for people from across the Midwest and South who want to end their pregnancies and must travel hundreds of miles. Now, with Texas passing one of the most sweeping antiabortion laws in the country, Trust Women Wichita is busier than ever.Today, L.A. Times Houston bureau chief Molly Hennessy-Fiske takes us to this abortion clinic. She talks to women who came from far away to get an abortion, staffers who feel their work is more important than ever — and antiabortion activists who are counting on even more restrictive laws to effectively shut down Trust Women Wichita.More reading:For many Texans, it's a long drive out of state for abortionOp-Ed: What it's like operating a Texas abortion clinic nowThe new Texas abortion law is becoming a model for other states

We were tipped off to this whole Bounty Hunters thing. I'd love to send you a few questions about it -- particularly about what it's been like to watch this blow up in the way it has, and to see so many people taking it seriously. Any interest? -Jesse https://jessesingal.substack.com/aboutSCD: Text or call?Jesse: Your call. I can send you a URL to the thing we use to record the podcast -- that way we could talk by voice but keep you anonymous if you wanted.SCD: I’m at work and won’t be free until Sunday really, if you wanna shoot some questions here on drama I’ll answer, but tbh I don’t know if I have anything that interesting to add.Jesse: All right let's maybe chat Sunday. In the meantime, just send me anything you're cool sharing about why you did the original post and what it's been like watching it blow up. Thanks.SCD: [I did it] [f]or laughs, that’s literally it. I don’t believe in taking the internet seriously, never have. I grew up using 4chan, where nothing was off limits, nothing was sacred, and the only real rule was “the first to take it seriously loses.” I guess I never really grew out of that mindset. I’m older now, have a career, a fiancé, and a life, but I still like to view the internet as the Wild West it once was. A place where you could say anything, be anyone and act as retarded as you like. Many who saw the post probably assume I’m pro-life, I’m not. The truth is my online positions and my real life ones rarely line up. In real life I’m pro-choice, vote Democrat, vaccinated, and a loving partner. Online I’m often pro-life, avid Trump supporter, and a misogynist, because these are the positions most likely to cause drama in today’s zeitgeist.Jesse: What was your reaction to it blowing up?SCD: Surprise. I made the sub one day before work in about 12 minutes before work, posted the thread, and only had time to check it once or twice before it got banned six hours later. It really just speaks to the current state of the culture war that this thing was ever taken seriously by anyone. So many people on both sides are searching for that next 5-minute hate so hard that whether it’s even real or not is often an afterthought. I’ve lost a lot of respect for journalists, even 2 minutes of digging through my post history would have revealed that it was an obvious troll.Jesse: So your thought process is simply “This would be a funny thing to seed”? I feel like folks who are less online have trouble understanding that someone might say something online they don't agree with in real life, and that this leads to a lot of bad coverage of internet controversies. Any thoughts on this side of stuff? I feel like trolling is just generally misunderstood, sometimes willfully.SCD: I don’t really know man, I’m not some internet trolling mastermind, just another dude with a childish sense of humor and a Reddit account. If I had to guess it would probably be something to do with how the internet has evolved. Today’s internet is largely sterile, commercialized, and in my opinion boring. People don’t see the internet as a place where you can be anybody anymore, but instead as a direct extension of who you already are. Thanks to social media most people’s online presence is the same as their offline, whereas before almost everything was anonymous, and you were conditioned to take everything written online with a grain of salt, because you never really knew who you were talking to.Jesse: Do you think part of it is a reaction against piousness and censoriousness? Even as a grown adult there's some part of me that responds to being told I'm not allowed to say something by just wanting to scream it. It feels like the most intense and creative trolling centers on the most hot-button issues, and I feel like that could help explain why.SCD: Oh that's a huge part of it, there's actually a huge overlap between rdrama and r/stupidpol users ( a subreddit dedicated to critiquing identity politics and wokeness as a whole). Sanctimonious, moral busy bodies are a favorite trolling target, because they’re literally everywhere online these days and take themselves very seriously. This website itself is a product of our original subreddit getting censored.Jesse: Last question, I think: What about someone who says, “Look, it's fine to be trollish but people are gullible -- this did scare folks and spread misinformation”?SCD: The sub was up for six hours and had only 63 members before it was banned. The vast majority of people who were potentially misinformed from it stemmed from the journalists who decided to run a story on an obvious troll attempt. I mean yeah obviously I share some blame for making it in the first place, but I’m not gonna lose any sleep over it. This is a public episode.

Its heinous and awful and it sure ain't democracy.

In Texas, 666 new laws came into effect on September 1, but everyone is hyper-focused on one law: SB8. This new law prohibits abortion beyond the six-week mark, aka when a heartbeat is detected. Many critics of the law have come out, to the point that Portland, OR, may not do any business with Texas. Texas also became a permitless carry state. This means that any Texan over the age of 21 with a clean record can carry a handgun without a permit. Should more states do this? Dan Ball, host of Real America with Dan Ball, joins Chad to discuss his latest interview with former President Trump. Do you remember Yuri Tolochko? He married his specially designed sex doll Margo last year, but since then he met his new love while stranded away from his wife Margo. Yuri is now in loved with an ashtray named AT.
