Unlike you and the rest of the sheep, I understand how SCOTUS works, it's not like they can wake up one day and say "it's a beautiful day, let's overturn Roe v. Wade".
It's a long process to get to that point, and Chief Justice Roberts is not going to allow it to happen on his watch. At 63 years young, he is going to be around for the next 15-20 years if his health permits, so abortion is here to stay, no matter what your fearmongering masters at HuffMediaThinkTalkingAlterDailyPoMattersProgressPointsNetKosMemo tells you to believe.

I know about CJ Roberts not wanting his bald spot photographed, if I was just a sheep I wouldn't know about that one ...
We're agreeing that it'd be a long process, but I belive the many SCOTUS watchers who think they'll overturn Roe slowly but steadily ...
How the Supreme Court became a political prize, long before Kavanaugh
If the confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court -- and the brutal Senate fight preceding it -- raised fears that the court may be sliding toward alarming partisanship, David Kaplan has some news for us all.
The court, in his view, lost its legitimacy as an apolitical arbiter of the nation's most important constitutional disputes long ago.
Kaplan argues that the Supreme Court remained within the limits he outlines, with few exceptions, for much of its history, until its 1973 ruling in Roe v. Wade.
In Kaplan's telling, Roe radicalized Republicans who began to view the court as a political institution and the justices' seats as political prizes.
After Roe, the court became a forum for partisan battles in the guise of constitutional law questions.
The justices -- selected through an increasingly partisan confirmation process -- were only too happy to take on the cases.
Kaplan explains that the result is the kind of court we have today, where justices decide politically fraught disputes along partisan lines on the basis of legal reasoning that amounts to little more than political preference.
Roberts might be a swell fella IRL, but if he truly wants the SCOTUS to go back to the days of it being apolitical, then he's got a helluva lot of work to do ... namely checking the right-wing activist supremes while somehow using his Chief Justice power to convince Congress to do its job and legislate these social issues.
