It'll get so bad, We'll just let them leave the Union at some point. Will it be Unconstitutional? Not if it can't be reviewed judicially, and really why would they want to?

You're getting off topic, but literally the whole point of this law is because, with Kavanaugh replacing Kennedy, a lot of pro-life legislators are hopeful that they can get SCOTUS to overturn Roe v. Wade. With Kennedy as the swing vote, the policy was basically to rule that every abortion restriction was compatible with Roe, but not overturn it (I think the only abortion restriction he ever struck down was spousal notification laws), so they need a policy so extreme that it can't be upheld without overturning Roe, and they're confident Roberts and Kavanaugh will both do that.

I realize I'm sullying a dark humor thread, but just a thought I wanted to get out:

A supreme court Justice could always just blunt or modify a policy as they rule on it. I mean, yes, these people mean to overturn Roe v. Wade, and are certain that these Justices will do it. But, there is no complete guarantee, other than having some knowledge of the social outlook of these people, that that will actually be what happens. They hardly have an obligation to actually uphold the precedent of any of the lower courts.

(And should it happen that its blunted or tinkered with after it reaches the Supreme Court, much "REEEEEEEEEE"-ing will ensue.)

Honestly, Radical Jihad sounds like a really good team name.

Also, according to legend, a village in Afghanistan once randomly joined a fight between insurgents and the US. When asked why they had done this, firing upon American and Al-Qaeda alike, their response was something along the lines of, "It was such an impressive fight that we had to join."

It was upon recalling Deathclaw's "Visit Africa..." Post, that it occured to me that we need a "Visit 'x', before 'x' visits you!" Series.

Liverpool FC are playing in the Champions League final in less than an hour, so this is probably my last chance to post this career-endingly offensive masterpiece:
