The Resurgent Attack on Women’s Rights, What’s The Endgame

23 Shares

With the resurgent attacks on women’s rights, what’s the endgame? Women across the country are mad as hell and rightfully so. As anti-abortion bills are being passed swiftly and against the will of the majority-thanks to gerrymandering (but that’s another topic). Most recently, Alabama’ s -Abortion Bill and Georgia’s – “Heart Beat” Bill have become part of a growing number of states short-sighted efforts to reverse the right of women being able to have safe abortions.  A right that has been upheld for over the past 40 years by the U.S. Supreme Court.

Roe v. Wade, the U.S. Supreme Court Decision which concluded that “the Due Process Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution provides a fundamental “right to privacy” that protects a pregnant woman’s liberty to choose whether or not to have an abortion.”

You know what other landmark decisions are anchored in the 14th amendment, Brown v. The Board of Education – addressed racial discrimination; Griswold v. Connecticut,- acknowledged a woman’s right to access contraception while married or single; and Obergefell V. Hodges- guaranteed the right of same sex couples to be married.

So my concern is this, what happens if Roe v. Wade is overturned? Are those other landmark decisions now put in the cross hairs of fake Christian ideologist, whose proponents tend to be hypocritical in nature? 

Who get’s to hold state leaders accountable with high poverty, maternal and infant death rates and underfunded education and healthcare systems which also contribute to death. 

Maybe the Federal Government should intervene and supercede states rights and drag those sorry behind underperforming state leaders to court.  How about the immediate removal from office for their piss poor administration and gross neglect of the welfare of their citizens. Is that where we are headed to? Sounds preposterous, huh? Just like these anti-abortion bills.

It is my hope that their efforts fail miserably and the countless campaigns to unseat these racist, misogynist, incompetent lovers of the confederacy out of office are successful. 

We will not go back! 

Check out some of these awesome initiatives.
