Anti-abortion bills are being debated and passed across the country. In Missouri, Alabama, and Georgia, the grisly procedure that many see as murder (they’re not wrong) is being outlawed. Doctors face up to 99 years in jail in Alabama. It’s caused a meltdown on the Left. The Handmaiden’s Tale comparisons are about to be rehashed. Things could get out of control and it’s not just left-wingers. Even Pat Robertson said that the Alabama bill goes too far. Even Trump isn’t on board with all of it. The goal is to get these cases before the Supreme Court in an effort to overturn Roe v. Wade, yet I don’t think that’s a sure thing. To the Left’s surprise, Justice Kavanaugh might not even vote to hear arguments. It’s too early to judge, though some are not happy with his latest decisions, siding with the liberal wing.
With such news, you bet the rabble-rousers on the Hill are getting in on this, like Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) who decided to use the abortion battle to plug her Green New Deal. She tried to shame the GOP for its pro-life advocacy, calling them out on it since they’re not supporting her green energy agenda that will save lives, except that it won’t. Oh, and in keeping with progressive attack lines, had to get in the “far-right Christian theocracy” jab.
Oh, and if the GOP cared about babies, especially those from families of color, they would back her Green New Deal.
To the GOP extremists trying to invoke “the unborn” to jail people for abortion:— Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (@AOC) May 17, 2019
Where are you on climate change? OH right, you want to burn fossil fuels til there’s hell on Earth.
If they were truthful about their motives, they’d be consistent in their principles. They’re not.
The GOP doesn’t care about babies at all - especially brown, black, or poor ones. If they did, they’d:— Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (@AOC) May 17, 2019
- cosponsor the Green New Deal or at LEAST have a real climate plan
- guarantee healthcare so ALL can get prenatal care
- not stand for the death+caging of babies on our border
What angers me about the GOP’s attempts to turn the United States into a far-right Christian theocracy is how dishonest they are about it.— Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (@AOC) May 17, 2019
At least be forthright about your desire to subvert and dismantle our democracy into a creepy theological order led by a mad king.
