Leaving a note asking that their children be taken care off, a New York City couple jumped to their death early Friday after pointing out they could no longer afford their health care costs.

According to the New York Post, the bodies of the unidentified couple — both in their 50’s — were discovered between Park and Madison avenues.

Police state that the woman had a note in her pocket reading, “Our kids are upstairs, please take care of them.”

But the ruling was dramatic in a key way. As court watcher Mark Joseph Stern wrote for Slate, Justice Brett Kavanaugh "falsely accused the state of religious discrimination in an extremely misleading opinion that omits the most important facts of the case" in his dissent — and was so dishonest that Roberts went out of his way to rebuke him in the Court opinion.
