    This may energize the D base some. But I doubt it will convince anyone to vote D who was going to vote R. Besides, most people vote their pocketbook and that does not bode will for D's.

    I hope there will be little effect in the end.

    If Dems were to take a majority how do the think that would effect this right/wrong issue?
    You are 100% correct.

    I guess I'm just not done spiking the football on this win based on the moral stance.

    I'm not quite ready to move on and analyze the political repercussions.

    I hate to add this part, but it's kinda sorta true

    The Republicans didn't just overturn Roe....SCOTUS did. There is a layer of abstraction, and even though those who follow politics know that the Justices who voted to overturn Roe were nominated by R Presidents, I don't think Joe Average cares to know that much about US politics, and so I think the effect will be minimized (although def not eliminated).

    Also, by November, many states will have passed pro-abortion laws, further minimizing the issue, and the attention span of Joe Average will have elapsed, and be back to cursing about how a gallon of milk costs him more and more every day.

    I agree with @Younggun on this. It is an issue of wrong vs. right, but Democrats are pushing issues that most of us think as fundamentally are wrong, or into accepting what is abnormal as being normal when we know that's wrong. Democrats need to be pushed out and made to be the majority.
    One last thing (one of many ignored by the dims) about the issue du jour that the liberal left is hoping will propel them to their goal of unlimited tyranny after a manipulated 2022 election:

    Let's pray that local regulation at the state level kills the disgusting and highly profitable industry benefiting from the sale of HUMAN fetal parts.

    Yeah, I know it is supposedly illegal, but that has not stopped the abuse of anything, including fetal part trafficking, that the dims hatch.

    Tyler "suburbs"... :)
    I am very liberal when it comes to Gun Rights, and spending my own money I earned :D (rather than politicians in most states, that take as much income tax as they can, and spend it how they want, careing not for true public opinion, which is a never-ending cycle for needing more).

    Play stupid games, win stupid prizes, however some children will suffer more from living in poverty, and while I am anti-pro-choice, and I see abortion as a solution to bad choices as wrong, many kids grow up with a hard-life like the bike-kids and drummer-kids on the streets.
    New Orleans was a place we visited one night, while in Louisiana, there were 2 pretty violent assaults I saw in just one evening, a black young girl assaulted what I assume was her brother more than 4 times, full-arms swinging HARD to the head, and bike-kids assaulted some dude violently(, I didn't see how it started, nobody was arrested). There's a BUNCH of savages in THAT town...

    As far as changing Texas to a Blue state, I think it could happen, like many states, as communists want to control everyone, even at the cost of lying, cheating, and stealing (dumping ballots).

    I believe many people are fleeing here as refugees, as they see how much lefties screw up the states they are fleeing, and have zero chance to even have a voice, or win an election. I am sure some are coming here to try to screw up this state too, but I think more firearm enthusiasts, and those fleeing crazy-stupid gun law states are coming here for freedom from many types of oppressive-state silliness, than the whackos coming here to again screw yet another state up.

    I think the intelligent gen-pop is waking up, and making informed decisions and weighing options to migrate here, unlike the stupid and ignorant which don't pay attention to anything unless their TV/Phone tells them to do something.

    I spoke with one girl from Kommiefornia I have worked with in the past, and she mentioned something like "what they will throw you in jail for, there", meaning abortion, w/out saying it, and I hope that things like this will detour many from moving to our great state of Texas, especially anti-gunners, knowing we are a "True Constitutional Carry" state. I spoke with another guy from IL, and he became a gun owner since moving here, so I think the tides are turning, espeially when SCOTUS is ruling with logic and reason in mind, rather than emotion these days...

    Then again, NRA HQ was in NY, but isn't now, and I have spoken with a retired Marine in Kommiefornia that is "anti-rifle for civilians", (if you are unaware, all Marines "Every Marine is, first and foremost, a rifleman.") so there are whackos everywhere...

    Most that come here come for the jobs of companies moving here, lower taxes, & lower housing cost. Many, not all, bring their communist views and thoughts with them and will not change what they are brain washed into thinking. WE are on the cusp of being blued unfortunately.
