Last night the Supreme Court ruled 5-4 against blocking a Texas law that effectively ended abortion after six weeks. This comes after the Supreme Court granted a writ of Certiorari to Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, a case that could potentially overturn Roe v. Wade, as oral arguments are expected to be heard in late fall.
Surprise, leftists went crazy. With cries of The Handmaid’s Tale and comparisons to the Taliban’s oppression of women, it was about what you would expect.
We’ve compiled some of the most outrageous professor responses to the ruling.

Abolish the Supreme Court.— Charles H.F. Davis III (@hfdavis) September 2, 2021

Growing up in New Orleans there was a cadre of very weird "extra holy" Catholics. Super into the repressive and demonstrative stuff.— Richmond Eustis (@reustis) September 2, 2021
The Republicans put one of those very freaks– Amy Barrett– on the Court right before a presidential election and this is the predictable result.
Michele Goodwin, Chancellor’s Professor of Law, University of California, Irvine School of Law
Yesterday, I taught the Fugitive Slave Act and the introduction of mob justice to matters of freedom, liberty, and autonomy. The Texas abortion ban (SB8), which weaponizes citizen participation in surveillance and blocking abortion rights is history revisited.— Michele Goodwin (@michelebgoodwin) September 1, 2021

This is demoralizing. I’m so angry and upset for the women in Texas (and soon many other states, perhaps Ohio as well) who will no longer have reproductive freedom. Conservatives hate autonomy for any and everyone they wish to control. Women have a right to an abortion. Period. https://t.co/mviMFPnBT2— Dr. Trevon D Logan (@TrevonDLogan) September 2, 2021

So can the sh!tbag conservative SCOTUS majority retire now that they have done the filthy, anti-woman job they were hired to do? Asking for #Jane— Claire Potter (@TenuredRadical) September 2, 2021
As you can see, they didn’t exactly take it well. The idea of unborn babies having the right to life just rubs them the wrong way, apparently.
