With Women's Rights on the Line, Groups Demand Supreme Court #StoptheSham

Lauren McCauley, staff writer

This post will be updated.

The U.S. Supreme Court, with one vacant seat, heard oral arguments on Wednesday in what is widely believed to be the most consequential reproductive rights case since Roe v. Wade, one which observers warn could dramatically alter abortion access for women across the country.

The church destroyed the "Sacred Feminine", the Goddess religions, to consolidate male domination and the church's power. They fostered the status of women as "property", inferior rather than equal to men, an abomination that continues to this day - the "right to life" movement and church teachings can be seen as continuing that dehumanization and absolute control over women. Respect for Gaia, Mother Earth, is also central to the struggle today. The church continue what was begun centuries ago with some christian (and other) extremist sects and adherents continuing the victimization of women by controlling their bodies with abortion proscriptions and laws - a modern form of witch burning. The history and enforced subservience of women is disintegrating for many, but as strong as it ever was for others in many different/repressive cultures....the struggle continues......to restore the Sacred Feminine.

Greenhouse neglects to mention that it is only deception and violence which has brought this
legislation to the Supreme Court --
That the "pro-life" movement has long been connected to White Supremacist groups -- with at
least two of the murderers of doctors at women's clinics being specifically connected to a White
Supremacist group.
This alliance was recently re-confirmed by The Southern Poverty Law Center.
AND, women's groups have long been aware of this alliance which is why they tried to move the
Supreme Court quite some time back to allow the use of RICO laws against them.

Where have we ever seen this much destruction of private business through domestic violence
and our government ignoring it?

This is the continuing war on women by the right wing fascists who have control of our nation today.

For so many years I have been infuriated by the use of the the term "pro-life" by people who in most cases care NOT AT ALL for the lives of women in the USA, of people of all ages including pregnant women and babies in the countries "we" invade and bomb, for the victims of police killings and "accidental" deaths of gunwielding toddlers and their parents or siblings. They choose to interfere in the bodies of women whose "welfare" is not for them to decide.
Nobody I have heard is suggesting abortion is compulsory, so mind your own private business, and let women make their own decisions in safety.

Yes, that should have been challenged long ago -- but as we may have come to realize
a week or two ago from the Clinton, Albright, Steinem train-wreck, those "feminists" who
rise to the top are usually those who support the MIC/CIA and vice versa.

(Did you happen to see that video of Hillary . . .
"We came, We saw, He died" -- "Ha, Ha, Ha" )

More rightly, we should be calling them "pro-fetus" --
How about "Women's lives matter" -- ?
Or "The lives of the living matter" -- ?
There actually have to be better challenges to those who suggest that they see
no difference between a fertilized egg and the established life of a living human being.
Or a 10 year old victim of incest who needs a late term abortion.

Somehow, it also escapes them that each and every woman makes up her own mind
-- each an individual, personal decision.

And the brutal treatment of women and children on welfare --
Clinton (with a nod from Gore) completely ending 60 years of Welfare guarantees.
And constant cuts to benefits.


WOMEN UNDER THE GUN
From 2001 to 2012 -- more than 6,400 women have been murdered in the US by an
intimate partner using a gun.

In the US, Women are 11X more likely to be murdered with a gun than are women in
other high income countries.

(In the US, every year: 30,000 Americans killed by guns
Every year -- 100,000 are shot --
Every day -- 289 shot -- 86 of those die)
