Some absurd number of lawmakers has filed an amicus brief with the Supreme Court urging them to overturn Roe v Wade and Planned Parenthood v Casey. Those, of course, are the two cases that establish the right to legal abortion in America. The lawmakers say that abortion is “unworkable.”
Unworkable? I’ll show you unworkable, asshole.
These people are so fucking stupid. I know you all have heard me say this before but completing a pregnancy isn’t an intrinsic good. There are serious issues once you’re booted out of the delivery suite and NONE OF THESE FUCKHEADS WANT TO FIX THEM.
There are no bills from these people to boost wages. They aren’t expanding insurance regulations to reduce out of pocket costs for policy holders. They won’t subsidize childcare. We don’t have universal pre-k. There’s no cheap aftercare for kids in elementary school. The folks on this brief aren’t addressing housing costs or transportation needs. Never mind government benefits for basics like food. Those have been cut already.
Basically, unless you’re lucky, having a baby is pretty damn unworkable.
We are not a pro-life nation becasue we don’t do the things that contribute to an excellent quality of life. Americans are poor, sick, overworked, under-compensates, and mentally unwell. We have no savings and no way to accrue wealth.
But some lawmakers are right here to make sure you keep that fetus in your belly whether you like it or not, whether you can see a path to raising it or not, whether you consent to pregnancy or not.
They should be ashamed of themselves but instead they’re probably strutting around acting like they kicked Margaret Sanger herself in the vagina. High fiving each other over how super fetus-fetishy they all are.
Look, you wanna ban abortion. We get it. But if that’s all you wanna do? You suck.
Our constitution is supposed to promote the general welfare. If you don’t think that includes the right to choose when or if you have a baby, you should at least learn to believe that includes providing a basic standard of living for every person in the country.
Not helping the born to live is the truly unworkable thing.
