What GoP hypocrisy today. It is sad that a small part of the population wants to take this safe right away from half the population. The same time they cry about Gov over reach in masks and vax. Kind of screws lose in the head. No sex education unless it is abstinence 🙄 Roe is gone, and everyone knows it. The open contempt conservative District and Circuit Courts of Appeals have for an established precedent, and SCOTUS's encouragement to them to continue to ignore it, are more than proof. It's just a question how intrusive States can be.

Not reported by the major television networks but this time lapse of thousands of young people marching without violence for a cause. I love my country.

Nation's Largest Anti-Abortion Protest Could Be Last Under Roe V. WadeThe March for Life, the largest anti-abortion rally in the U.S., returns Friday with thousands of expected protesters in Washington who feel within reach of their goal for the last 49 years: a sweeping rollback of abortion rights.

Nation's largest abortion protest could be last under RoeAnti-abortion protesters are gathering in the nation's capital with a sense that the U.S. has reached a moment that could lead to a rollback of abortion rights. The Supreme Court appears likely to let states impose tighter abortion restrictions. It should read Pro-Life protestors. In 1975, women of Iceland went on strike for equal rights. 90% of women walked off their jobs & homes, shutting down the entire country. The men could barely cope. Five years later, Iceland elected first female President. Now Iceland has the highest gender equality in the world. They will, and then those states will be economically embargoed. No modern company can operate in a third world shithole that strips fundamental rights from half their population. They are already economically insignificant - and the modern parts of the country don't need them.

Anti-abortion activists march in Washington, hoping it's the last time under Roe v. WadeTens of thousands of anti-abortion advocates gathered in Washington on Friday for the annual 'March for Life,' their mood boosted by the possibility that the U.S. Supreme Court could soon upend the Roe v. Wade ruling that legalized abortion nationwide. Let me guess....they are 'Christians' ? I cannot believe women are marching to take the freedom of choice away from women. Ultimate narcissism to get into groups and discuss how to control a woman's body.

"The right to access abortion services is being directly threatened by the Supreme Court," Chu said. "We need to fight to make sure that we continue to have our constitutional right to an abortion." “This is about life or death. Its’ about racial, economic, and gender equality," said Rep. Barbara Lee (D-Calif.) Of note: White House press secretary Jen Psaki said Friday that the Biden administration is "deeply committed" to ensuring abortion access, adding that "we will defend it with every tool we have." With a 6-3 conservative majority in the Supreme Court , "this is the moment the pro-life movement has worked tirelessly to bring about — our greatest opportunity to enact ambitious laws that save millions of lives," said Marjorie Dannenfelser, the Susan B. Anthony List president. "For almost 50 years the Supreme Court has tied the hands of elected leaders nationwide as they strive to protect the unborn and their mothers, even from late-term abortions that inflict excruciating pain on children in the womb. Now, that right may finally be restored." What we're watching: With the midterm elections happening later this year, Democrats could lose control of Congress, which would be a major blow for the abortion rights movement. DeGette told Axios she believes that recent attacks to abortion access could
