Overturning Roe v. Wade

You just knew it would come to this. All it would take to overturn Roe v. Wade — now that the Supreme Court is comprised of right-wing activist judges — was a case brought by a state that had outlawed abortion. Now that South Dakota has outlawed most abortions (the only exception being if the mother’s life is in jeopardy), the constitutionality of this new law will surely be challenged all the way up the ladder to the Supreme Court.

What ever happened to “get the government off my back?” For a so-called conservative government, this administration sure seems interested in getting involved in each person’s life — from what they can and cannot say in a public forum, to what they can and can’t do in their own private bedrooms, to what decisions they choose to make about situations that affect their lives.

I don’t believe anyone is “pro-abortion.” I think most of us realize that people can find themselves in situations where they need to make tough decisions that will be with them for the rest of their lives.

If this administration really wanted to end abortion, it would stop robbing the middle and lower classes in this country to further enrich the wealthy, and it would support sex education in our classes instead of “abstinence only” programs, which have proven to be completely ineffective.
