Alito cited writers from the 1700's and 13th century in his opinion


?s=20&t=z8AQsr5aqFV9Vt9h1lmlVA


As in the leaked draft, the Court majority signs on to Alito approvingly citing:

A "13th-century" treatise which said hitting or poisoning a pregnant woman in a way that "caused abortion" was "homicide."



?s=20&t=z8AQsr5aqFV9Vt9h1lmlVA


Alito cites writers from the 1700s to approvingly note their view that "abortion of a 'quick' child was 'by the ancient law homicide or manslaughter' [or] a very 'heinous
misdemeanor'"

This court( the Republican members) has absolute contempt for women.

2. Oddly appropriate since that's where the right wingers want to take the country.

3. Yes, the majority of the court prefers

Following ancient mystical texts and laws over using science and statistics and data to make decisions. See itís all just black and white.

4. Interesting that he apparently doesn't know what "quick with child" means.

Quickening occurs when the mother first feels the fetus move in the uterus, which happens in the fourth or fifth month.

5. Oh, he knows

He's just ignoring it because it doesn't fit with his preconceived notions. He's a misogynist as well as a misanthrope.
