Oliver's takedown is spot-on. It's hilarious to hear our conservative pretending to be surprised at this - it's what they wanted for decades, and what they've worked towards.
And make no mistake - this isn't the end. They aren't going to set back and say "okay, it's up to the states now, our work is done."
No, they want not only to make abortion illegal in all cases, but they want it to be MURDER. And make no mistake, if you have a miscarriage, you're then going to be suspected of murder, unless you can prove otherwise. Here's one woman's frightening case
"I went to the doctor because I had a lot of pain in my lower back and pelvis, and had been nauseous for weeks," Parrish started her thread. "A blood test confirmed I was pregnant – until that point, I didn’t know."
Getting pregnant is one of my worst fears. I have nightmares about being pregnant, about being forced to have something grow inside me, and having to tear myself apart to bring it into the world.
The doctor brought me in to do an ultrasound, and confirmed that I had been pregnant, and wasn’t any longer. I’d miscarried, and that was where the pain and blood was coming from.
The doctor asked me about pregnancy, going into consolation mode. They asked me if I’d been trying to get pregnant, if I’d been pregnant before. I told them I had been pregnant, once before.
The doctor asked Parrish how many children she had, and when she responded that she had none because she had had an abortion when she was 19 years old, she wrote that “the conversation shifted dramatically.” She said the doctor questioned if she had taken a list of drugs in the last six weeks, asked what she had been doing and if she intentionally injured herself.
"Intentionally or not, it felt like I’d become a suspect in the death of something I didn’t know existed," Parrish said on Twitter. “Eventually, it stopped. They were satisfied that I hadn’t known I was pregnant and induced an illegal abortion in Texas. I left, though not without the fear that because I’d gone for medical help, I’d now be reported, per Texas law.”
And they won't stop at abortion, either. They'll work to make contraception illegal, too. Because it's NOT about life, it's about sexual control of women. Period.
They'll work to overturn every case that used the right to privacy in the Constitution, because they don't believe you have a right to privacy in your own bedroom with consenting adults.
Gay marriage will be in their gunsights next, and every one of our conservatives will once again be shock - SHOCKED! - that the Supreme Court they fought so hard for would do such a thing.
Which is pure bullshit. They know what they wanted, and their exultant over what's happening.
