Think they are going to pick up the travel expenses (transport, lodging, ...) as well as the cost of losing out on your income during the trip, as well?

Again, poor people.

Quote from: FreethinkingSceptic on May 16, 2022, 11:50:29 PMAs far as the argument here goes. I guess I can see a tangential link between overturning Roe vs. Wade and same-sex marriages.

According to Alito, the right to abortion recognized in Roe must be overturned because it is not valid under the Constitution's 14th Amendment right to due process. Abortion is among a number of fundamental rights that the court over many decades recognized at least in part as what are called "substantive" due process liberties, including contraception in 1965, interracial marriage in 1967 and same-sex marriage in 2015. Though these rights are not explicitly mentioned in the Constitution, they are linked to personal privacy, autonomy, dignity and equality. Conservative critics of the substantive due process principle have said it improperly lets unelected justices make policy choices better left to legislators. The result is states could pass laws banning abortion, contraception, interracial marriage, and same-sex marriage, plus these bans could go in and out of effect depending on which party gets elected. Progressives are in office, I'm married, conservatives are in office, I'm single. I go to California, I'm married, I go to Florida, I'm single.

And yes, California is crazy enough to allow extremely late term abortions.

California law is max 26 weeks. What do you consider "extremely late"?

That is current law, because they haven't gotten around to changing it.  If RvW goes, I would not be surprised if they changed it to over 32 weeks.
