Leaked draft opinion indicates SCOTUS will overturn Roe Vs Wade

Pro-birth Supreme Court justices poised to strike down Roe v. Wade

On the evening of Monday, May 2, 2022, Politico reported that a leaked draft majority opinion written in February 2022 by Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito concerning the pro-choice abortion decision Roe V. Wade in 1973, is set to overturn the landmark decision, which gives women autonomy over their own bodies, including aborting a pregnancy up to the end of the second trimester, which, typically is up to 27 weeks, when a fetus is considered to become viable, that is, it can survive outside of the womb.

This is not a surprise, we knew that Trump and the GOP stacked the US Supreme Court with pro-life (read: pro-birth) conservatives to produce this result. The GOP stole one nomination from former President Barack Obama, blocking his nominee, Merrick Garland, citing that a president in their final year should not be allowed to nominate a judge. Only to flip that on its head pushing Amy Coney Barrett onto the high court in record-breaking time in the final month of Trump’s tenure at the White House.

The issue is weak, useless Democrats, who like to push the blame on the GOP, Democrat congressman Sean Patrick Maloney literally tweeted “It’s about Republicans, not us“. Never mind the fact that Democrats have had control of the House of Representatives, the Senate, and The White House for a year and a half, and have done sweet FA with it. No Republican votes are needed to kill the filibuster, which would allow Congress to codify Roe v. Wade into federal law, making the SCOTUS vote irrelevant.

Many Republican stronghold states have been implementing their own rules on abortion over the past 18 months, some banning abortion after just six weeks, a timeframe where a woman is highly unlikely to know she is even pregnant. According to the SCOTUS 1973 Roe v. Wade decision, this is unconstitutional as it’s within the first trimester, but the 2021-22 Supreme Court has allowed these laws to stand, despite being at odds with Roe v. Wade. All these state-based rules were designed to push the decision up the judicial chain to the Supreme Court, which is where we find ourselves now, the GOP end game.

If the final SCOTUS vote does strike down Roe v. Wade, you can bet your bottom dollar that, as expected, the GOP retakes the house and Senate in 2022, and the White House in 2024, the filibuster is gone without hesitation. And, they will outlaw abortion federally, so even the Democrat states cannot offer pregnancy terminations. The GOP did the same thing with a carve out from the filibuster for Supreme Court nominees, to push Gorsuch, Kavanaugh, and Coney Barrett onto the court to set up this situation.

If this is allowed to stand, either by the voting public or by congress, next they will take aim at same-sex marriage, then interracial marriage, America is on a disastrous trajectory, where civil liberties will be systematically stripped away. Of course, the GOP is the party of small government and freedom, but wants to regulate a women’s body, does anyone on either side of the aisle believe this bullshit.

America needs stronger, progressive Democrats in Congress, but I don’t see it happening. Between the apathy of the electorate, who turned out in 2020 to hand Democrats both houses of Congress and the White House, based on Biden’s promises, will not turn out again because they feel those promises have been broken, with only excuses coming from the Biden administration. And, the fact that people are very vocal on social media, but don’t turn up at the polls, words on the Internet don’t change anything.

Americans need to understand that Washington DC could not give a single fuck about them. It doesn’t matter whether there’s an (R) or a (D) after their name, they are all beholden to corporate America. At this point “We, the people” is nothing more than a meme, unless you believe the SCOTUS’ ruling on Citizens United, stating that Corporations are people, and money is speech. ‘Real’ people cannot afford to buy politicians to do their bidding, so they get constantly trickled down on (pissed on from above).

Finally, this meme, I don’t actually advocate for this either, but it makes the point.

Stop abortion at the source...

Addendum: I am not pro-abortion, nor pro-murder, I have been accused of both. I am pro-choice, I do not believe I, nor anyone else has the right to dictate what anyone can do with their body. The reality is that pro-life advocates are not pro-life, they’re pro-birth, once a woman births that baby, the pro-life brigade is not interested in that ‘life’. No support for mother and child, meaning kids living in poverty, going hungry, where often the only meal they get is at school while the right-wing advocates for the abolishment of the social safety net programs, and advocating for the second amendment when kids are being gunned down in mass school shootings, blaming it on mental health, using the tragedy to push for more guns, advocating arming teachers. This does not sound very PRO-LIFE to me.
