Now Commence the Fun and Games


The Supreme Court has ended constitutional protections for abortion that had been in place nearly 50 years. The decision by its conservative majority to overturn Roe v. Wade on Friday is expected to lead to abortion bans in roughly half the states. The ruling came more than a month after the stunning leak of a draft opinion by Justice Samuel Alito indicating the court was prepared to take this momentous step. Three of the court’s liberal justices wrote in a joint dissent that the decision would bring “sorrow” for the many millions of American women who will be losing a “fundamental constitutional protection.”

Let's see if those fuckwads on the Right now follow up with supporting mothers and families who are now faced with having to take care of children born of rapist fathers and of incest. Let's see if they do anything to help mothers whose lives have been placed at risk, such as the women in Missouri who would have been sentenced to death by ectopic pregnancy, until the language was exposed to the light of day.

Next on the agenda of the Christian Taliban will be banning the right to use contraception, use in-vitro fertilization to have a child, and to marry the person of your choice.

When the law impacts the freedom of men, this Court works to protect them. When the law impacts the freedom of women alone, this Court has worked to limit their freedoms.

If a woman has money, she will be able to get an abortion, as was true in the pre-Roe era. If a woman does not have a lot of money, she will have to bear the consequences of becoming pregnant.

But the men will not have to bear the consequences of getting a woman pregnant.

I never would have thought that in the 2nd decade of the 21st century that we would start heading back through the 2nd decade of the 20th, to the 2nd decade of the 19th. Next up: gay marriage, interracial marriage, women's right to vote, the right of sexual freedom within a private residence, the right of non-property owners to vote.
