The Trumpian Supreme Court overturned almost 50 years of federal abortion rights in its execrable decision on Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization.
Thirteen states have trigger laws that will soon make abortion illegal, and many other red states are expected to enact laws that outlaw abortion. Bottom line, abortion will be illegal in about 25 states.
This egregious ruling robs women of sovereignty over their own bodies and will result in tens of thousands of unwanted births.
Middle class and affluent women won’t be as severely impacted as poor women, they can afford to take time off from work and travel to a state where abortion is still legal. But poor women may not be able to afford to take time off from work and travel to another state.
According to the latest census the population of the United States is 329 million, with 37 million citizens living in poverty. The atrocious Dobbs ruling will add multitudes to the poverty rolls.
A week earlier the far-right Supreme court ruled that the Constitution protects an individual’s right to carry a handgun in public for self-defense.
There are estimated to be over 400 million guns in the United States between police, the military, and American civilians. Thanks to the Supreme Court’s ruling even more citizens will be walking around packing heat. The Wild Wild West was never as chaotic, dangerous and uncivilized as modern-day America.
Thanks to Trump’s Supreme Court we will have millions more unwanted babies, and millions more unneeded guns.
