If you thought you were going to have a nice peaceful start to the week, think again. In a shocking development that is unfolding even as we write, someone has leaked information that SCOTUS may be preparing to overturn Roe v. Wade.
A leak like this is unprecedented, and some have surmised that it may well be a last-ditch effort for Democrats to motivate their base. Not such a crazy notion, as Monday night brought word that Democrats from across the country have already been calling for the elimination of the filibuster to help them protect the most sacred tenant of their faith – abortion.
The Hill reporter Julia Manchester shared a series of posts Monday evening that included breathless statements from varying Democrat politicians.
Mandela Barnes, Lt.Governor of Wisconsin and current candidate for U.S. Senate said:
It has never been more clear why we need to abolish the filibuster and take immediate action to protect every person’s right to make decisions about their own bodies. Republicans have proven they will stop at nothing to strip every individual of their right to an abortion. We must act now.
You’ll note he was careful not to be prejudicial in supposing that only women have abortions. Every INDIVIDUAL…of course.
Pennsylvania Lt. Governor John Fetterman had this to say:
Let’s be clear: the right to an abortion is sacred. Democrats have to act quickly and get rid of the filibuster to pass the Women’s Health Protection Act and finally codify Roe into law. We cannot afford to wait.
At least he was honest about his religion. The right to kill a baby is sacred to his party. It is better for everyone to be up front about their faith when it comes to politics.
Ohio representative Tim Ryan is a co-author of the “Women’s Health Protection Act” and issued this statement:
Overturning Roe v. Wade would be absolutely wrong, not to mention catastrophic for Ohio, where Republicans have passed one extreme and dangerous proposal after another to ban abortion – without exceptions even for rape, incest or medical emergencies – before most people even know they’re pregnant. We cannot sit back and allow the Supreme Court to gut Ohioans’ most fundamental rights. Control of the Senate has never been more important. It’s time to end the filibuster, pass the Women’s Health Protections Act, and fight like hell to make sure all Ohio families are free to make these critical decisions without interference from politicians in Columbus or Washington.
There he goes again with the whole “people” thing. Only women have babies. Only women have abortions. It’s quite interesting how the only time they want to refer to women is to pass an act enshrining abortion. Otherwise, women don’t exist in the pregnancy discussion.
RedState will continue covering this unprecedented story, and the insane reactions to the possibility that more babies might be born. Stay tuned.
