    Default Congratulations, you took freedom away…

    It’s actually the right to Privacy, which was much larger than abortion. It was the right to make basic personal decisions that most directly affect who we as individuals are.

    The conservatives could easily have left that right alone and carved Abortion out of it. Instead these guys took it away giving the government the power to once again regulate access to birth control, who we can marry and any other number of personal decisions.

    They took power away from individuals and gave it to the government.

    Connies talk a big game on liberty - but they don't really believe in it.

    Let's take it to the streets and tear it all apart.

    This republic has outlived its usefulness. It's nothing but a dumpster fire now.

    Time to try something else.

    Middle American and the deep south can't be part of the same country as civilized places.
    We clearly proven that now.

    What more do people need to see?

    Religion....is the opiate of the people. Karl Marx, 1848

    it's called democracy. It's an issue that should be rightfully left to the states. I thought democrats loved democracy. Now's the time to practice it. Convince people your side is right. The states that reject it do so with the majority support of their populations. That's federalism. Embrace it. Your authoritarian regime is crumbling.
    NPC is a beloved internet personality. Their pronouns are he/him. NPC fully recognizes the inherent privilege of being able to post on a message board, and as such NPC makes sure to avoid all social media where the trust and safety council flags something as dangerous to think about. He avoids all tweets that are disputed, and only supports mainstream news sources where former CIA, NSA and FBI serve as talking heads.The future is female, orange man bad, black lives matter, and wear a damn mask!

    So, you're good making all rights a state's issue, then?

    In a democracy there are certain rights even the mob should not be able to take.

    I truly do not understand why people get obsessed with abortion.

    Im a libertarian. I take privacy rights to heart, and that includes anything to do with my body.
    I fully support "my body my choice"
    but the decision was only for the implied right to privacy, which is not in the Constitution
    It was right in the Alito decision

    But do you really believe you do not have a right to privacy?

    we have the 4th. but that is not bodily autonomy -that's for papers and effects.

    The FDA just pulled Jules vap pens -they want to make nicotine illegal
    I dont mean even leave it regulating by the states -blanket illegal - so no I have no bodily autonomy
