Alito wrote in his opinion that “prestigious common law authorities characterize post-procedure abortion as a criminal act.” “Henry de Bracton’s thirteenth-century treatise made it clear that if a person hits a pregnant woman, or gives her a poison, as it causes an abortion, if the fetus is already formed and agitated – and especially if it is motile – he commits murder.”

Instead of impersonating existing political figures as in most cold editorials, fee The series goes back to the 13th century to visualize Alito’s historical reference, which he sarcastically called “a moment of clarity, nearly a thousand years ago, which laid a clear foundation for what our laws should be in 2022.”

With dramatic thunder pounding, cast member Kate McKinnon theatrically entered the room, waving her hands like a witch.

“Oh my God, ogre!” Cumberbatch cried and assured him that she was just a “woman in her thirties”.

Even so, she claimed she could see the future and that anti-abortion laws would one day be repealed due to “something called progress” and after about 50 years “they would be like maybe we should undo progress”.

She added that “no matter how many choices women make, we always have the choice to keep fighting!”
