Remember when Trump and the Republican-majority congress appointed three Supreme Court justices? And liberals worried that it would mean the end of Roe v Wade? And conservatives said we were just being dramatic? Yeah. That same Supreme Court just upheld Texas’ extremist abortion law:
This isn’t about saving the lives of children. If it were, they’d mandate masks and stop school shootings. They’d make childcare happen, and school lunches, and give kids clean water and some hope of a climate future. This is about control. This is about keeping people in poverty. Because the wives and daughters and mistresses of these conservative men will still be able to access abortion.
I’m used to the cruelty at this point, but the hypocrisy is just breathtaking.
(Once your rage simmers down to a manageable level, donate to Planned Parenthood or the ACLU. Share Plan C’s link about abortion pills by mail widely. Call on your representatives to end the filibuster, protect reproductive rights at the Federal level, and expand the court.)
