My initial hunch is of course they are. Anytime they are seeing anything that could even be construed as limiting abortion, they go bat-crazy. And so, it’s to be expected that Democrats are going to try and do everything in their power to keep that. The problem is very simple.
There isn’t a damn thing they can do about it.
The Supreme Court is the last stop on the railroad. There is no way to change what the court has said unless a future court decides to do what this one did, which was actually rectify a poor decision that was made under pressure from liberal women back in 1973. But we have to be very clear about what is and what isn’t happening. The Supreme Court is NOT over-turning Roe v. Wade per se.
What the Supreme Court is doing, IF what everyone has read by now in the leaked decision is accurate, is send back to the state of Mississippi the court case that came before the high court. That case limits abortions to 15 weeks (through the first trimester). Most people in the country (68% by the way according to a recent poll) say that they would agree with this limitation. Snowflake liberals don’t. They want abortion on demand up to and including birth. That is not the majority opinion in the country however. When you get closer to the actual birth, the number of people thinking at abortion should still be legal drops to 22%.
But the Supreme Court, by sending this case back to Mississippi (it’s called Dobbs v. Jackson in case you’re interested), it’s saying it’s a states’ rights issue and Mississippi has the right to decide this case on their own. That being said, Roe v. Wade is going to be changed because it isn’t a “national policy”, but abortion isn’t going to go away. States can decide if they want to have abortions made legal in their state, and if so, what, if any, limitations are going to be attached.
And actually, the liberals if they had an ounce of brains in their head, should be rejoicing on this one. Do you know how many abortions have been performed in this country since 1973? The answer is about 63 million. Now, let’s assume that 75% (a number I’m pulling out of the air) were Democrats and 25% were Republicans who got abortions. That means that Democrats have lost about 47,250,000 million new voters. And you think 12 or 13 million illegals coming into this country is a big deal? How close would ANY election be if Dems were to throw an additional 47 million votes their candidates way? You wouldn’t HAVE to get rid of the filibuster. We’d be a one-party nation in a matter of two decades. But that’s the short-sightedness of the left. Give me a way to not have a baby that I would have raised to be liberal! Duh!
Anyway, Roe v. Wade may be changed, it may not legalize abortions everywhere, but it will still be around. You can always drop by California, or New York, or Oregon, or Washington State, and get your abortion is you want.
Carry on world…you’re dismissed!
