I'm fucking stunned. Yes, we all saw this coming, but still. My hatred for TFG and Turtle McTurtleface burns with the intensity of a thousand suns for stacking the Court the way they did.

Right now, it's our right to choose. How soon before our only rights are to be in the kitchen, barefoot and pregnant, making dear hubby a sandwich?

Even though I knew this was coming...never really bought that whole "they'll just chip away at Roe, not really overturn it"...it still feels like a punch in the gut. I'm too old to have to worry about making the choice to terminate a pregnancy, but I have children who aren't. Especially a daughter. Even though this isn't an officially released opinion, general consensus is that's a real SCOTUS leak. Not some sort of Deep Fake. They're REALLY going to set us back 50 years.

The only thing I can hope is that this lights a fire in all the places where some burning needs to take place. Time to expand the SCOTUS, for one. Because this won't stop with Women's rights to our bodies. They're coming after Same Sex marriage, next. We have 4 Radicals on the SCOTUS right now, and one who tries to make it look good, but who no longer really matters to the Court and who's efforts are moot at this point. That needs to be counter-acted. Before much longer.

Welp. It's here. What we knew was coming for the past year. Women's Rights are not Human Rights to a subset in this country. Nor to a majority of our Supreme Court.

Quote from Alito: “It is time to heed the Constitution and return the issue of abortion to the people’s elected representatives.”

Say, what???!!!!

Our elected representatives, which still skew largely male get to decide the fates of our bodies? Unfuckingbelievable.

3 stolen Supreme Court seats. We screamed in 2016 that it was all about the Supreme Court, but no, some folks didn't like Hillary, personally. Fuckers.

You bet your sweet bippy they are coming for gay marriage next. Both Roe and Obergefelle use the 14th Amendment as a basis.

This is what happens when you support the Clintons and their cronies. Stop voting for the elderly!
You would do well to shut your fucking mouth right now. You are exactly the kind of idiot/fucker/jackass I was referring to in my first post. You should apologize to women, then quietly take a seat in the back.

Most recently, the court established the right of same-sex couples to be intimate (2003’s Lawrence v. Texas) and get married (2015’s Obergefell v. Hodges). Alito dismissed both decisions in harsh terms, mocking their “appeals to a broader right to autonomy” as a slippery slope.
Don’t even be slightly queer, y’all.

Oh yeah, I'll just sit back and watch you morons push the country farther into theocracy, and never ever say I told you so... not even once!

That's what you want, isn't it? You don't want to be called out on your own bullshit. That's not going to happen.

This is what happens when you elect cowards. From Garland's failed confirmation to Trump's election, and seating of a record number of Trump's judges without a hint of resistance, the party leadership has directly caused this, and you've been cheerleading for them the entire time. Now you think we all forgot what you support? Nah, I don't think so.

... so yeah, I told you so.

Maybe we can fix it if you don't support timid little cowards when you vote this year. The alternative is to elect the same cowards, and let Trump establish a state religion in 2024.

Look, you stupid, selfish prick. You are the last person I want to hear from regarding this decision. You fucking, fuckity, motherfucker. You've got a lot of balls thinking anyone wants to hear you right now. You are the face of this to me, do you understand? You and all the other stupid, spineless assholes who didn't care if half the country lost the right to their own bodies.

Now, fuck off!

So I’ve been away a while and at first wasn’t sure if this was intended as parody or satire but based on the other responses I’m guessing not.

Reading through your elaborated post I can kinda see what your ultimate end objective is, and while I’m not sure this approach will be the most successful in motivating support and change, I’m fairly certain it’s bad timing for this approach.

While provoking anger, or tough love if that indeed is what you are intending, can be useful tools it requires good timing and a level of trust that doesn’t appear to currently be the case.
