Most of them blokes, I am guessing...

 

Not 18 year old blokes who got their girl friends pregnant, though I bet!;)

33 % of Americans want it overturned.  :( 

 

That´s democracy for you, eh what :huh:

It´s curious how  2 of the major countries in the "Free World" both have FPTP (parts of the US anyway) and have 2 of the most fucked up democracies in the world.

Roe vs Wade likely being overturned is because the public elected a clown, racist, homophobic, misogynistic, President who wasn´t fit to govern. That sounds familiar and is also being played out in the country across the pond at this very moment.

America is going through the looking glass and back to the stone age.

Keep banging the rocks together guys.

Blokes and Karens.

 

Unfortunately calling them Karens etc seems to be the only reply the Democrats actually had when Trump was slowly but surely fucking up the US.

Play by the rules, don´t stoop to their level didn´t do them much good did it.

Spot on there.

Mysogyny ubiquitous. And the men don't actually see it. They are convinced they are not sexist. :huh:

It wasn't just the orange clown. Mitch McConnell stole a SCOTUS seat from Obama in 2016, after Scalia died, ostensibly because it was too close to an election (10 months away), only to approve another justice just 38 days before the 2020 election (hence stealing it from the future Biden admin).

 

What's more, 5 of the 6 conservative justices currently on the court were appointed by presidents who lost the popular vote (Bush 2000, TFG 2016).

 

And now they're (apparently) going to throw out 50 years of precedent and settled law because they can. They're all ratfuckers.

Unfortunately judicial power in America is not independent. It's also not 100% independent in most EU countries, but not as bad as in America.

Independence of powers means supreme courts can't be nominated by politicians. It has to be either by popular vote or among judicial agents. Problem is, in America certain judicial agents are also nominated...

Pro-Lifers stand for...

Free health care for the baby and parents.

Easy and free adoption for the newborn if required.

Free and easily available contraception.

Comprehensive sex education.

Reducing the cost of raising the child.

And something I never knew existed...Criminal penalties for a man who removes a condom during sex.

 

 

Oh, wait Pro-Life is just a buzzword that whacky Christian right-wingers like to use to pretend they care about the unborn rather than it being about control.

@Keleth Wow that makes me both pro-life and anti forced-birth

 

Anti-choice, and forced-birth are the correct monikers for those who claim control over a woman's womb.
