The Man Defending the Texas Abortion Law at the Supreme Court Is Truly Awful

Here is a non-exhaustive list of Mitchell’s retrograde view to keep in mind when reading coverage of the Supreme Court arguments.

Mitchell Hates Birth Control and Non-procreative Sex

In a March 2020 class action lawsuit challenging the Obamacare birth control coverage requirement, Mitchell said birth control isn’t preventive care because it’s not needed to prevent pregnancy when women can just close their legs instead:

“Contraception and sterilization are simply devices that enable women who do not wish to become pregnant—but who are unwilling to refrain from sexual intercourse—to engage in sexual intercourse while greatly reducing their risk of pregnancy.”

If the Court does as he wishes and overturns Roe, he reiterated his view that women who don’t want children can simply stop boning: “Women can ‘control their reproductive lives’ without access to abortion; they can do so by refraining from sexual intercourse.” Please note the total erasure of the impregnating parties from this picture.

Mitchell Hates LGBTQ rights

Not a fan! In his brief in the Mississippi case, he claimed that sex with a same-sex partner (Lawrence v. Texas, 2003) and marriage equality (Obergefell v. Hodges, 2015) are court-invented rights that are “just as lawless as Roe” and invited the court to overturn them alongside Roe. He has referred to LGBTQ people as engaging in “homosexual behavior” and “homosexual conduct” and during a 2018 Federalist Society forum, he called transgender people “transgendered,” a term that GLAAD says artificially separates trans from lesbian, gay, bisexual, and queer. They note that you wouldn’t call Elton John “gayed.” Also in 2018, he represented a group seeking exemptions to anti-discrimination rules so they could refuse to hire LGBTQ people it if counters their religious beliefs.

Does this man have children? I feel sorry for them.

While meeting his secretary twice a week for a nooner at a local hotel.

7. Mitchell is aware....

that it takes two people to "procreate", doesn't he?

I'm not sure where and when Mr. Mitchell grew up, but when I was a young man I was almost singularly obsessed with pursuing young ladies with whom I could "practice" this act of procreation.

Now I find that it was all the young lady's responsibility whether those "practice sessions" took place at all. I had absolutely no say in the matter whatsoever!

So it was all those wiley women who led my poor Momma's son astray! If I'd only known then what I know now.

Thank you Mr. Mitchell, for bringing this to my attention, you complete moron! It takes two to "tango", shit for brains. And I remember doing just about anything I could to convince those young ladies I was the young man they should "tango" with!

What a complete and utter dipshit. This guy's asshole is so tight you couldn't get a sewing needle up there.

8. This is what is going to get women out to vote ...

no matter what their party. It's always about "fucking" with women one way or another.

Of course he's a hater for Jebus and an all around piece of human garbage.

12. "...court-invented rights..." Funny how these jerks don't think Citizens United and other

egregious SCOTUS right wing decisions are "lawless."

13. Well, it looks like he's not married and doesn't have any legal children

I googled him and couldn't find any info on a spouse or children.

But it sounds like religion has really screwed up this guy's normal sexual life. I know several people who were unable to have "normal" sex lives either with same sex or different sex partners because their religions made them sooooooo afraid of it. M

It's sad to see how these Evangelicals have messed up their children's sex lives so badly the kids can't even have the abusive sex lives they prescribe for them. They think they are making sure their kids stay virgins until marriage. But what is really happening is that their kids can't have sex even after marriage....and most of them don't even get close to marriage because average people don't want to have anything to do with them. The 40 year old virgin is not just a story. But he is one messed up guy.

This guy looks like a baby. His round face and hairless chin gives him such a baby look. But he has served as a law clerk for Scalia so he can't be all that young. He's 45 and looks 15.

He was unemployed at the time he wrote up that forced abortion law for Texas.

What a weird little man. Matches most of the weirdos on the Supreme Court.
