"Third option is that they honestly overrule roe V wade. They just say, we think ro was wrong. Roe V wade is overruled. States can do whatever they want on abortion. That's the third option. The fourth option, which isn't that different than the third option, is basically that we get a dishonest opinion overruling roe V wade. So the court might not write the words, roe V wade is overruled. But there are lots of ways that they could write a legal standard that makes it impossible for people to protect the right to an abortion. So an example of that would be, again, this case is about viability. The Supreme Court could say, oh yeah, yeah, we're keeping the viability rule in place, but there's just a lot of uncertainty about when a fetus is viable. So it's up to the states to determine when it becomes viable. And if they want to say that a fetus is viable in the first minute of pregnancy, that's fine. So, you know, if the
