You don't think that South Dakota wouldn't want to seize all of Planned Parenthood's assets, once you take away their Fifth Amendment rights?

On what basis would they seize those assets? Can they just seize the assets of Exxon (in South Dakota) if they feel like it? Is it the 5th Amendment that prevents this? Can South Dakota just wade in and shut down Jim's Deli because it doesn't like the sauerkraut Jim sells?

That Mississippi wouldn't try to keep movie studios from marketing or distributing movies with sexual content, once you take away their First Amendment rights?

Again, on what basis? Mississippi already has some laws which regulate pornography, probably, the location of strip clubs, etc. Are you saying they could simply decide they don't like movie theaters one day? Or that they have some authority over television stations licensed by the FCC?

I don't understand the legal theory you're using to espouse these horrible outcomes.
