“…the Texas law, which makes no exceptions for pregnancies resulting from incest or rape, bars state officials from enforcing it and instead deputizes private individuals to sue anyone who performs the procedure or ‘aids and abets’ it. The patient may not be sued, but doctors, staff members at clinics, counselors, people who help pay for the procedure, and even an Uber driver taking a patient to an abortion clinic are all potential defendants”The New York Times, September 1, 2021
In 2016 I told co-workers who were parroting the “both sides” drivel, that’s it about the Supreme Court, stupid. Elections have consequences, and unfortunately people were too apathetic five years ago and let Trump have his way with the Court. And only due to 45’s screw-up regarding Covid-19 did Biden prevail in 2020.
And now we have voting rights being stripped away (something that has been happening since the Voting Rights Act was signed in 1965) and the Supreme Court allowing Texas’ SB8 to stand via the shadow docket.
Vote, protest, boycott, DONATE.
