They want fetuses to grow up and become target practice.
I hope that every single person who disagrees with this and other rulings sure to come that can afford to, moves from these states that are stripping away woman’s rights. Let’s see how well these shitholes do with decreased tax revenue from a dwindling population. I will never visit or spend a single cent in any state that has jumped on the "let’s go back to the dark ages" bandwagon. Give all that tax revenue and spending to states that deserve it.
I was 15 years old when abortions became legal in US.
An article about Gerri Santoro who died from a self(done by her lover) abortion before Roe vs Wade became law. The article was in Ms Magazine 1973. Her death and photo became symbol of abortion rights.

Some years back, I was researching something unrelated to abortion in local newspapers from the 1800s. This was in a small town in Pennsylvania. I was surprised to see ads for what were basically abortion pills. Usually they used a euphemism such as “to treat obstructed flow” and “especially suited to married women”. Abortion did not begin in 1973, in fact it has been common all through history.
The knowledge of what was in these pills is still around. Were they toxic and potentially harmful? Hell if I know, but probably so. I would imagine that this information can and will be disseminated pretty quickly. It is barbaric that it has come to this, but it has.
Had a long convo with my 16-17 yo kids. They were rightfully pissed about the SCOTUS ruling BUT it sounded like their peer group has been “groomed” (hate the term now but it fits) to see both political parties at fault. Decades of GQP running on “govt doesn’t work and is evil“; getting elected on that premise; proving the premise by blocking anything useful once elected; then blaming the Dems especially when they have nominal majority in congress/White House; and continuing the little lies about voting fraud have taken its toll. We discussed how Dems have had a mixed history of contributing to a lot of these problems, especially the corporate Dems and the “republican-lite” Dems.
However, it dawned on me there really is only one clear and simple message/concept ALL voters need to focus on—elect fascists and we get fascist policies. Keep electing fascists and we eventually have a fascist government. All the other bullshit in media and social interwebz is just noise—much of it generated by those with a vested interest in maintaining the status quo. The Republican party has proven now that they are fascist—either outright or through consent.
The kind caring anti-abortion people screaming with their hate filled voices and faces, as in the photos often seen. Doxing the judges who decided against, and threatening their wives and children with violence. That shows the real level of them. Self seeking animals who actually have no care or concern and no religion. Now the weak and vulnerable will suffer death, at the hands of backstreet abortionists. Babies left in skips and streets put to die. Mothers dying of ectopic pregnancy and sepsis-etc
I actually believe this bestial matter will become unworkable, and that the majority, who support abortion rights, will win through
Those same people who support the death penalty and the ability to carry around guns.
Been trying and trying to think of something to say on here. I've got a boulder in my stomach and tears right behind my eyes. "I'm sorry", is all I can get out right now. Canadians are feeling your pain deeply.
Here's an editorial from The Guardian, through Yahoo--I think it's pretty good in outlining the occasionally surprising twists and turns of how we got to this point in Talibangelicalism: https://www.yahoo.com/news/christian-took-over-judiciary-changed-070008675.html
To our wonderful friends across the pond, we're all deeply shocked, and stunned by the decision. This has been a hard right wet dream for years, and they will now turn to other regressive decisions in the near future that will impact heavily on many others.
I fear for peoples safety, health, and well being in what is supposed to be the "freest nation" on earth.
There are no words that I can describe to say to you all at how horrified that millions of us across the globe are feeling right now.
It's going to be a tumultuous time in the US for anyone now, and I hope that maybe one day soon, sanity will prevail.
I just can’t. Been soul sick all day.
I feel sorrow and pity for the 11 million women who have lost the right to decide whether or not to have a child.
No, that statement is not hyperbole because Thomas himself, has stated that the court should strike down all the laws regarding contraception, gay marriage, gay rights, hell, why not the right of women to vote, too?
I'd like to ban him from the court. He is scum and his wife is worse.
A very sad day for this country. I see n
