    I assumed it was.  No self respecting shitter aficionado would have anything else.

    Good chunk of the populace can't stomach the thought of government legislating for gun control, but it's ok to strip away a woman's right to decide what she does with her gestating self. I know, not my original thought, but that doesn't make it any less baffling. 
    Add in all the room-temperature-IQ trumplicans who screamed, for two years, "You can't make me wear a mask, it's MY body!", and it becomes an even more perplexing and unsolvable Thought Problem.
    Again, so glad I'm old, and have no kids/grandkids.      
    It is worse than that.  They are actively using that as justification.  My FB feed is full of it.
    The point isn’t to make a logical argument, it never was.  The point of borrowing that slogan from the pro-choice movement was to piss off liberals.  That’s always the point.  It’s all grievance politics.

    In a few days I turn 78 so that means I’m further along this conveyor belt of life than most of you.

    With that said I really wish all of you on BOTH sides of this heated debate the best as the winner MAY actually be the loser on just where the USA is headed, but most SELFISHLY and THANKFULLY I most certainly won’t be around! 

    No gun to my head, but a goodbye in advance to my fellow eggheads!

    Don't say bye yet.  Hope nothing here has caused you to leave...to much divisiveness as it is.

    I think there is a case for impeachment of supreme court justices and based off this article it seems relevant to your questions.

    I for one am shocked that the dude who sexually assaulted Christine Blasey Ford and then lied about it to the entire country wasn’t telling the truth when it came to his intentions for Roe. Nobody could have seen that coming.

    It’ll be interesting watching companies in these states try and recruit or retain talent in the coming years.

    Just to update the NYT, Mississippi has had  two laws passed. The second is the law that the court ruled on and upheld, no abortions after 15 weeks. The first was a trigger law banning abortion entirely if Roe versus Wade was overturned. I guess that we will see which one the state enforces.

    Add AZ to the red list per a letter from the Senate.  pre-Roe laws are now in effect.

     Mitigation measures are already being deployed. I don't think its actually going to make a tangible difference. 

    *****'S (posted above), and Google (I'm sure there are others) have announced relocation benefits, or health insurance coverage, to take care of abortion services for their employees. Given how it matters less where an employee is physically present for many companies nowadays (at certain levels), I don't think it will hurt the companies much.

    "You're a conservative right-winger, who DGAF about abortion rights? Howz about working out of our TX office??"

    "We fully support a woman's right to make choices regarding her health/body/offspring. No WI office for you. How about working out of our Schaumburg office in IL??"

    It will impact student - undergraduate and graduate (particularly international) - recruiting and matriculation at institutions in all of those states.  I guarantee it.

    I still say we need PJ to testify. Sounds like he may have the whole story.

    I still say nope.

    Visa considerations trump just about everything else for international students/trainees in the biomedical sciences. caliqueen tells me stories of what new hires did not ask/consider before signing on, and it makes me cringe. Sadly, many PI's do not have the scruples that keep them from exploiting trainees/younger graduates.

    My colleagues are saying they’re seeing it already.  You may recall I spent several years here as the Director of Graduate Studies.

    To be clear I’m talking about the very best students, the ones who typically get into multiple schools and have choices of where to matriculate.

    We actually saw a much smaller version of this at Duke many years ago when NC passed that awful bathroom bill.  We missed out on a good number of students.
