In less tense times, simply not answering would mean voting no, because part of the vetting process is understanding what their stances are no matter which side of the aisle you're on.  I would hope that some of the Republican Senators have similar concerns, but I'm not holding my breath.  Maybe Mitt will have a McCain moment?  Oh, who am I kidding

We warned you in 2016 that elections have consequences.

We have another election coming up in less than two weeks.

The *only* way to stop the Republican War on Women is to vote democratic. No write-ins, no third-party votes, no staying home because the D candidates aren't perfect.

Vote democrat or enjoy the real-life version of A Handmaid's Tale.

Fundies would argue, though, that abortion is Itself a death penalty, that they take their laws from God and not "the government," so it doesn't matter what anyone else thinks. These are not people who should be judges period, let alone on the Supreme Court.

Who's death?  The woman or the Doctor's?

Even your anti-choice people recoil at the thought of killing a desperate woman.  She would be guilty of murder for hire in their view of the world.  The doctors they see as pure evil so they have no problem killing them.

If you make it illegal there may be no doctors to kill, but plenty of women will die.

Whenever ive had to debate abortion with a pro-lifer i always ask them what they think the punishment should be for women who have abortions.

They never seem to want to punish the woman, they always want to lock up the doctor and let the woman go free. Which is weird because if you hire a hitman, they dont arrest just the hitman.

Like with most things, conservatives dont seem to have thought it through that far.

There was that Congressional candidate (might have been a state-level legislator?) who asked that very same question - "why would we criminalize the procedure and the provider, but not the person requesting or paying for it?"

Why yes, it was a white Republican man - what EVER could have clued you in to that?

// plus all those "can't harm a fetus" laws that have been used to lock up pregnant people (poor women, mostly) for not taking care of their fetuses the way the state wants them to
// because freedom

Some of the abortion laws written in southern states punish the doctor with murder, some punish both with murder.

And some have no exceptions for rape nor health of the mother.

Yeah, they're that nuts.

Remember in 2016 when Trump was asked about this, and since he doesn't really have a position on this because it isn't about him, he went through the logic of the question and said that yes the women should be punished?

This is the future you get when you don't vote. Being denied access to birth control and being put to death for a miscarriage ain't that far off, and this woman sounds like she'd be leading the charge for it. Anyone wanna risk letting another republican putting someone on the supreme court? ever again?

"Before joining our medical team as chief surgeon, we have a few questions. First, can you tell us how you would go about assessing the performance of your staff?"

"As a current surgeon and as a candidate for this position, it would not be appropriate for me to offer an opinion on abstract health care issues or hypotheticals."

"Um... OK... then can you tell us what you would do to ensure that hygiene standards are properly implemented?"

"Please see my previous answer."

"Um... OK... then can you tell us what you would do if you found out that one of your nurses was euthanizing elderly patients?"

"Please see my previous answer."

Trump doesn't give a shiat about abortion.  He never even talks about it.  He.  Does.  Not.  Care.

Bennett was nominated to the court because she will undo everything that GInsberg achieved.  Period.   Much like trump attempting to reset eight years of Barrack Obama, the republicans care little about the potential collateral damage, as they are blinded by personal hatred.

It's going to take decades to undo the damage of the last four years.

How often do you think late term abortions occur?

Ever wonder why there's no language specifically targeting that time period?

Maybe if your side provided help for families raising deformed children then we could all sit at the table like big boys and girls. But no. Y'all don't so that.

People of Praise used to refer to female members as "handmaids."

Former People of Praise member Coral Anika Theill, who joined the group in 1979 and is now 65, told the Associated Press that when she was a member, women were expected to live in "total submission" to their husbands. Theill told AP, "My husband at the time was very drawn to it because of the structure of the submission of women."

According to Theill, her husband accompanied her to gynecological appointments to make sure she was not obtaining birth control.

Reimers wrote, "A married woman is expected always to reflect the fact that she is under her husband's authority. This goes beyond an acknowledgment that the husband is 'head of the home' or head of the family; he is, in fact, her personal pastoral head. Whatever she does requires at least his tacit approval. He is responsible for her formation and growth in the Christian life."

Women had to be obedient. They had to be subservient."


We have yet to see one very relevant question asked: are we appointing ACB to the court or are we appointing ACB's husband by proxy?

/seems a question worth asking, even if it's OK for Christians to lie in order to establish GOD(S) KINGDOMTM

Potential justice ACB, could abortion be a crime punishable by death? ACB: *shrugs*

"Could" or "should?" Because if your question is "COULD abortion be punishable by death," well who the fark knows? Anything's possible with THIS administration. Now, if your question is SHOULD, then that's a question ACB can actually answer.

Sometimes it's the people pushing Barrett that are looking for one.  They don't want their little princess on death row for one lapse of judgement.  Just the sluts who use it for birth control, which they've also made illegal.
