Who else is listening to arguments in Roe v. Wade case from Mississippi?

So far, the Justices, or most of them, seem to be more interested in how the question presented is different from Roe rather than how it's similar.  Chief Justice Roberts trying to explore some middle ground,  e.g. one that's absent a strict viability rule.  

Me, I tend to think Roe got the issue just about right, even if it may have been dismissive of the idea that states should handle issues like this.

The three liberals need to peel two justices away from the conservative side.

Amy Conehead Barret is a lost cause, but Kavanaugh might think that if he maintains Roe they won't keep digging into his past and demanding another FBI investigation. As to the other possible, Gorsuch might surprise.

It's too depressing.

In my fantasy world, Roe is overturned, women across the US rise up and elect Democrats next fall, enough to impeach several of the justices. 

But, in reality, it will be overturned, there will be much wailing and gnashing of teeth, and nothing will change. Other than many more young women dying due to lack of healthcare choice.

Sotomayor: "Will this institution survive the stench that this creates in the perception that the Constitution and its reading are just political acts?"

Louisiana is one of those states that passed "trigger bans", whereby their restrictive me-too laws will automatically take effect if the Mississippi law in question is affirmed.  Not too surprising, Southern La is Catholic, and Baptists in northern La are conservative.  Going to be a long drive or flight to obtain an abortion in the non Deep-South if the trigger gets pulled.

Wrap-up from NPR here, doesn't sound very strong for Roe.  And likely a long wait for the decision, "next summer".

Build the Wall. The Mason Dixon line would be a good place to start. We could integrate the south again, if they beg for federal funds, again and again, and admit that they suck the Government tit.

This. I've  always said Lincoln is the worst President for keeping us shackled to the South. Slavery would have imploded.  The South may have lost the war but they sure as shit won the peace.

Just looking at a couple of news commentators, it looks gloomy for Roe supporters, but from some of the comments from Breyer and Alito, along with Roberts, maybe just maybe, could carve out some kind of middle ground.
