And on the third day they found that the stone had been rolled away from the door to the tomb. Too late, Jesus was already out inspecting each womb.

Make no mistake about it, while the Trillionaire sociopaths are clearly the primary enemy, there are only a sparse few of them, and they could be easily defeated, It is the countless millions of Jesus freaks who brought them to power, eliminated our representative democracy, brought us to the brink of ecological extinction, and who are still supporting the fascist movement from every pew and platform they can find. This is the force behind the evil and destruction in our world, not the trillionaires themselves.

Next on the agenda is for states to pass the Hester Prynne Act forcing women who have had abortions to wear a Scarlet ‘A’ on their chest.

what will it take for this nation to stand up for ALL WOMENS’ AND GIRLS’ RIGHTS. It has yet to happen in my 85 years on this planet and it is getting worse daily. Patriarchy is at the heart of this attack on women and girls lives and bodies. Enuf already. End the white, christian supremacist movement once and for all. It is what is at the bottom of all this horror.

This smack down by a federal judge is what the right to lifers anticipated with such a restrictive law, then to appeal and advance to the Supreme Court for arguments against Roe vs Wade. The game is on.
Millions showing up in Washington DC to fight for Choice is what is needed now.

Maybe we should look at how Ireland now has free abortions when just a few years ago, abortions were not allowed thanks to the catholick church.

This judge’s reply sounds like he’s seen the depths of human depravity. A testament to what’s actually needed in a judge rather than a particular political persuasion.
