    Does it mean women are also have a responsibility to exclusively (just like they reproduction rights are exclusive) take care of kids.? What if someone refuses to take care...shall she go to prison?

    Not sure if I have a right to give birth (sad if I do not)..but as far as rights at large are concerned - I think I certainly do! I also think I have responsibilities and the 2 should be balanced.

    Every person has some rights obviously that are guaranteed via various legal systems across the globe.

    There were no female members of the U.S. Supreme Court in 1973. Roe v. Wade was a decision by 7 men, with 2 men dissenting. If the U.S. Supreme Court decides that the 1973 decision was wrong in law, the immediate effect (sans further legislative intervention) will be to return the decision to electors. Roe v. Wade was a decision by unelected, activist, male judges. If it's overturned, abortion law will more closely reflect the will of the electors in individual States.

    And there are three women justices on the current court which has apparently decided to overturn Roe v Wade.

    Ironically, despite claims that Roe v. Wade is 'controversial', the decision is far more popular than the Supreme Court which is likely to overturn it. Polls consistently show that the decision has 50% - 60% support, with the Court's approval now down to 40%.

    As the article points out, a widespread perception that the Court is a political body (a view not helped by the leak of the draft decision) is a serious problem for a body which needs to be perceived as above politics.

    I no longer believe the US Supreme Court overturning Roe vs Wade is a good thing.

    Noor was the first police officer in the state’s history to be found guilty of murder for killing a civilian. ...

    After a trial that captivated the midwestern state in 2019, Noor was convicted of third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter for shooting Damond, a dual US-Australian citizen, after she called police to report a possible sexual assault behind her home.

    He was sentenced to 12˝ years on the murder count but was not sentenced for manslaughter. ...

    The ruling now means Noor’s murder conviction is overturned and the case will go back to the district court where he will be sentenced on the manslaughter count.

    Noor has already served more than 28 months of his murder sentence. If sentenced to the presumptive four years for manslaughter, he could be eligible for supervised release around the end of this year. ...
    US ex-cop who killed Damond to be freed
    AAP JUN 24, 2022
    A former Minneapolis police officer who fatally shot US-Australian dual citizen Justine Ruszczyk Damond is scheduled to be released from prison next week. ...

    He was re-sentenced to four years and nine months on the manslaughter charge.

    In Minnesota, it is presumed that a defendant with good behaviour will serve two-thirds of a sentence in prison and the rest on supervised release, commonly known as parole.

    The DOC’s website says Noor will be on supervised release until January 24, 2024.

    Damond’s father, John Ruszczyk, said on Friday that the family was disappointed that Noor’s third-degree murder conviction was overturned.

    “His release after a trivial sentence shows great disrespect to the wishes of the jury who represented the communities of Minneapolis and their wish to make a statement about the communities’ expectations of police behaviour and actions,” Ruszczyk wrote in response to emailed questions from the Associated Press. ...
    So what's your excuse? For running like the devil's chasing you?

    With the revelations coming out of the Jan 6 hearing, Trump may well end up in jail before then.

    Perhaps. The revelations are certainly very damning but I am not so sure it will lead to Trump being charged with anything.
