    A few tell me "a strong nuclear family" will solve the problem as it always has.
    Ignoring that you know, the nuclear family is "new" in history and for the vast majority of times people lived in extended families and communities working together.

    The nuclear family unit was, iirc, a post WWII thing.

    They can stop praying for all the "murdered babies" each night — I imagine that gets tiresome. That’s really all they do cause they’re sure af not helping parents and actual babies.

    What a joyous day! Ofcourse the silent holocaust will continue in certain states, but it's a step in the right direction.

    Another lawsuit waiting in the wing.

    AG Merrick Garland Locates Spine, Says States Can’t Ban FDA-Approved Abortion Pills

    Shortly thereafter, Attorney General (and one-time Supreme Court nominee) Merrick Garland—a typically cautious and mild-mannered man—released a statement nudging the FDA to sue states that try to claim abortion pills are now banned, saying in part:

    Today’s decision does not eliminate the ability of states to keep abortion legal within their borders...[The Department of Justice stands] ready to work with other arms of the federal government that seek to use their lawful authorities to protect and preserve access to reproductive care. In particular, the FDA has approved the use of the medication Mifepristone. States may not ban Mifepristone based on disagreement with the FDA’s expert judgment about its safety and efficacy.


    This kind of action from the FDA would be based on a legal principle called federal preemption, which stipulates that state law can’t override federal law. (This comes from the Constitution’s Supremacy Clause.) If the FDA has approved a drug like mifepristone, the theory goes, states can’t ban it. Law professors and journalists have been highlighting this strategy for months now, and the generic manufacturer of mifepristone is currently suing Mississippi over the state’s abortion pill restrictions.

    To be crystal clear: Abortion pills are not a solution to abortion bans. They’re only FDA-approved for the first 10 weeks of pregnancy, and many people need abortions further along in pregnancy (or just prefer an in-clinic procedure for their early abortion). The Biden administration needs to take much more action, including exploring leasing federal land to abortion providers in states with bans. But for now, we will take the tiniest win in the form of Garland coming out of the gates with something.

    Want them to pass over to be judged, told they were wrong and forced to see why and then hold to account for it before they are allowed to move on even if they are good people and ultimately go to something better it won’t be before they are forced to own up and be held to account.

    If their Christian God is real all of them are going to hell.

    Oh who am I kidding, "Jesus died so everyone is forgiven". That's why they can do everything amoral. They were pardoned by their God-God already.

    If only you knew anything about the trigger laws and how applying a blanket ban with the exception of the lifew of the mother actually ends up causing mroe women to die because doctors dont want to be prosecuted.

    Such is the law in Texas now. In Malta, a woman had to be medvacced to Spain to get a life savinbg abortion because her dying fetus still had a heartbeta but she was developing an infection because our bodies weremnt meant to house decaying / dying matter.

    There's a recipe for abortion juice in the Bible.

    If you want to keep a child when you knock up your favorite sister daughter, with you being pro incest and all, go ahead.

    But comparing it to the Holocaust? That's actually a little grosser than the previous sentence.

    GOP in general is terrified of it going blue. If it goes blue, GOP needs to make significant ground in other states to ever have a chance of winning another Presidential Election. If somehow, Florida, Texas, and California all go blue, it's pretty much game over for GOP.

    Right now, Texas + California + New York would be 122/270 votes needed to win. Add in Florida and it's 152/270 votes.

    Florida and Texas are trying real hard to limit votes Democrats have any way they can.

    It's a long shot, but if Democrats can get a few more seats in House and Senate based on the shit going down this last week, and we can pass things like election reform in 2023/2024 as well as begin looking at other types of reforms such as judicial reform, GOP is a dead party.

    2022 is literally the most important election Democrats alive today will ever face. Democracy isn't going to die in the darkness, it's going to die this November if there isn't massive turnout.

    True or not, this is...the fourth? Fifth? Time I think I've heard this in this century so far, at the very least. It's exhausting and really kinda becomes a meaningless phrase.

    I forgot about that one, usually I just quote Genesis 2:7 to abortion bible thumpers and smile as they get angry about getting slapped in the face with their own bible.
