Today, she set out a proposal to integrate Roe v. Wade’s provisions for access to abortion into federal law. She even framed her proposal this way: Congress Can Protect Choice. And she’s right. Congress can legislate on abortion; the matter can be settled through politics, rather than through a strained parsing of the Constitution by the courts. Political arguments can be made, and countered. Voters can go to the polls to support candidates who will vote for such a law, which will make any previous Supreme Court ruling irrelevant. This is the process called politics. And America, for 46 years, has tried to keep abortion out of it. It’s encouraging to see Warren jump into the fray to bring legislative politics back to the subject — and to call the right’s bluff on taking that approach. It’s amazing it has taken this long. http://nymag.com/intelligencer/2019/05/andrew-sullian-a-way-through-the-intractable-abortion-wars.html Anonymous May 19, 2019 at 6:23 pm I was just commenting today to a family member that this “overturn Roe vs. Wade” rant is getting tiring, let the wackos who want to TAKE AWAY OUR RIGHTS take it to the Supreme Court, if it gets overturned maybe some women in this country will wake up and Congress can pass a bill. i am sick and tired of the minority evangelicals trying to tell us what we can and cannot do. This discussion has been coming up every election year practically my whole life. Next they will say women can’t vote. Anonymous May 19, 2019 at 5:46 pm …Nothing I lived through will convince an Alabama Republican to change his mind. To them, nothing I’ve done in my 31 years on the Earth — none of my accomplishments, none of my happiness — elevates my worth above that of an embryo. There are stories bleaker and more violent than mine, and they won’t persuade Alabama Republicans, either. There is only one just and moral response to the anti-abortion movement, and that is to strike down its arguments in their entirety. A fetus is a possibility, not a person. While abortion can be the tragic end to a wanted pregnancy, it’s never murder. The opposite position is extreme, and a threat to the health and safety of women. There is no compromise, not on the personhood of women. You can’t find middle ground. Invite them into your big tent, and you threaten the most vulnerable people inside it. http://nymag.com/intelligencer/2019/05/theres-nothing-wrong-with-abortion.html Anon May 19, 2019 at 6:21 pm A total ban on Viagra, condoms and PSA test.

And again, that too has everything to do with concretizing the bible. The ignorant and their bible, chicken or the egg.

This debate is not about the sanctity of life. It is about corporate capitalists who desperately need more bodies and intend to coerce women to produce them.” https://www.rawstory.com/2019/05/mcconnell-is-working-to-keep-trumpism-alive-no-matter-what-voters-say-in-2020/ “According to Daniel Goldberg, legal director at the Alliance for Justice, “I am not sure how they can speed it up anymore. Mitch McConnell has already eroded almost every rule and norm to expedite Trump’s far-right judges with as little transparency and vetting as possible.”” Anonymous May 20, 2019 at 10:17 pm She was spot on. I LOVE Leslie Jones. I will miss her Game of Thrones reports. Comments are closed.
