“The Supreme Court on Friday overruled Roe v. Wade, eliminating the constitutional right to abortion after almost 50 years in a decision that will transform American life, reshape the nation’s politics and lead to all but total bans on the procedure in about half of the states.”
The New York Times
The January 6 Committee Hearings have exposed in stark relief how close the authoritarian Donald Trump’s machinations came to keeping him in power in spite of his landslide loss to Joe Biden. We are living in perilous times and we can’t take anything for granted, not democracy or our constitutional rights.
This is a dark age in the history of our democracy, this execrable ruling may be a precursor of horrors to come. Today the far-right Supreme Court dealt a crushing blow to women’s rights, will they strike down marriage equality next?
Welcome to the Handmaid’s Tale America, racists and Christian nationalists and far-right reactionaries have taken over the Supreme Court and the Republican Party.
These religious conservatives are in the minority, the majority of Americans wanted Roe to remain the law of the land. The vast majority of Americans support sensible gun control laws, but yesterday the Supremes struck down New York’s law limiting guns in public.
To hell with fascist red, white and blue fake patriotism, America is a rainbow country. America is a “live and let live” democracy, and we must take our country back from white evangelicals, far-right Justices, and Trumpian Republicans.
