    Which will ultimately amount to a meaningless gesture.

    I think it will be 5-3-1, with Sotomayor, Kagan and Breyer dissenting (with Sotomayor likely writing the “main” dissent - the other two may write their own dissents as well, and all 3 will join in all of the dissents) and Roberts writing an opinion concurring in the judgment (i.e., the statute stands), but not the reasoning (i.e., the statue is OK under Roe/Casey and Roe/Casey should not be overruled). Unfortunately, the 5 is the only thing that matters.

    If one more person joined Roberts, what would be the next result of a 4-3-2 vote?

    While it wouldn't be the opinion of the court, the Roberts opinion would essentially control - Roe/Casey stand and so does the statute.

    Seems like it shouldn’t be hard to make a simple case for government.

    “In a capitalist country, government protects individual rights and the public good. Without government protections, wealthy people can do whatever they want to violate your rights for their own benefit.”

    The dismantling of the United States is well on its way. Thanks, Republicans!

    Yeah, the republic is ending. It’s been a descent run… the late 1960s though the late 1990s were good at least.

Turns out the speculation was accurate.
