We Will Not Turn the Clock Back On Roe v Wade

May 11, 2022

Another outstanding essay by Sally Edelstein in her Envisioning the American Dream blog. The SCOTUS draft argument to overturn the Roe v. Wade precedent and steal women’s reproductive rights by allowing states to severely rollback access to safe abortion care should become a major issue for this November’s Midterm Elections.

Turning the clock back by negating half a century of pro-choice protections while demanding via Court decision a mandate forcing birth upon all women under any circumstances with no exemptions against the wishes of a large majority of the American people is unacceptable. We need to vote out any and all advocates of such a draconian policy.

Furthermore, Congress needs to enact legislation protecting these rights, as well as other recently acquired rights (same sex marriage being an obvious example) from attacks by the hard rightwing GOP. We need to be strengthening these rights, not elimination them out of spite. – rjc

Handmaids Tale

Many women went to sleep last night in America only to wake up to find out they are living in Gilead.

    These people — Republicans all, are turning the World upside down and into a very dark archaic age. Unfortunately, it can only get worse unless and if they open their eyes to see what their legacy will reveal. They are sheep following with blinders not for Justice but following religious ideologies – contrary to the Constitution. What happened to these Judges’ brains? Perhaps we can blame trumpism or covid in the brain, or maybe they lost sight of reality.
    Wake Up America it is 2022!

  2. Conservative Scotus is so hypocritical and contradictory:

    – my body my choice, unless it’s her body – that’s also my choice
    – pro-life. Except masks aren’t necessary to protect your life
    – pro life. But no limits on guns

    Hmmm, this is sounding more misogynistic than pro-life.
