Well, I was going to refrain from commenting on the overturning of Roe v. Wade, but after reading pros and cons and posting both, I've realized I must weigh in.

First of all, the hypocrisy of the "pro-choice" has not surprised me but made me boil inside.

Signs saying: "My body, my choice" really set me off. But "you," and you know who you are, supported the vaccine mandate and the mask-wearing mandate and pressured people into getting the vaccines, which have shown to cause adverse reactions in many folks. See the VAERS publications at https://www.cdc.gov/vaccinesafety/ensuringsafety/monitoring/vaers/publications.html , if you don't believe me. Every one of us does have a choice when it comes to vaccines, especially in the case of an experimental one. It has been well proven that getting "the" covid bug (which has never been isolated by the way!) creates much better immunity than the jabs.

If you are so concerned about your bodies and your "rights," what about the rights of the baby girls who are aborted?

Our bodies were created in the image of God. I know many of you will cease reading at this point, because horrors, the writer believes in God.

It is your choice to have sex (I am not talking about those who have been raped, and I'm torn on that issue). But the "ooops, we had sex because we were stinkin' drunk, and ooops, I'm pregnant, but oh, well, I'll just go get an abortion" really makes me angry.

That addresses the topic of responsibility, which is one of my beliefs and sometimes rants. We must EACH take responsibility for our actions. In the above instance, you, having become pregnant, now have the responsibility of another human being on your hands. When you abort that child, you have now committed murder, even if you think it's just a "clump of cells." It is already a child from the moment of conception.

Responsibility also includes discipline. Don't get drunk; don't have sex with the first person who comes along, because he's or she's cute. Have discipline in your everyday lives. I think and I hope that most of you would never think of stealing something from a store or someone's house. That is because you have discipline and take responsibility for your actions. Have you ever cheated on a test? You were stealing from someone who studied. Life requires responsibility and discipline.

The unnamed "you" professes to be against war and violence, but bombing a pro-life organization's building is, in your opinion, reasonable. Can you think this through carefully? What would you feel if someone bombed, defaced or destroyed your business building or home? You hate guns, but Molotov cocktails are warranted?

You profess loudly that black lives matter, and yes, they do, just like every life matters, but do you know that often more black babies are aborted than born? See this sentence: "According to a (New York) city Health Department report released in May, between 2012 and 2016 black mothers terminated 136,426 pregnancies and gave birth to 118,127 babies. By contrast, births far surpassed abortions among whites, Asians and Hispanics," from this article: https://www.wsj.com/articles/lets-talk-about-the-black-abortion-rate-1531263697

Do you know the history of Planned Parenthood? "When Sanger created this organization, she did not have the health of women in mind. She felt that 'inferior' human beings (blacks, latinos, and the disabled) ought to be relinquished from the world and abortion was just one way to do that." Here are more comments from the article: "A book that Margaret Sanger wrote in 1922 called The Pivot of Civilization, really delves into her thought process and goals. … In the book she talks about the potential difficulties a society could face with a resurgence of undesirable humans after years of ethnostate bliss. One of her suggestions is eugenics. Sanger writes." Read more about what she thought about eugenics at https://humandefense.com/margaret-sanger-the-untold-story-of-abortion-eugenics-and-racism/ or in the linked book above.

I'm sorry, but your idea of abortion being a constitutional right has been proven wrong. If you took the time to read the U.S. Constitution, as well as its amendments, you would find, just as the Supreme Court justices found, that abortion is never mentioned nor even thought of in the Constitution.

Our rights, as delivered in our Constitution, are given to us by God, Nature, Supreme Being, whatever you want to call our Creator. These rights are to be treasured and followed not to be trod upon by someone human, who thinks they know better. You don't know better. When you realize that, hopefully you will regain a sense of responsibility and discipline.

The Constitution of the United States of America states clearly in the Tenth Amendment: "The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people." This is what the Supreme Court Justices chose to make their decision.

For all those of "you" who scream that abortions are outlawed. No, they are not. The states now have the right to choose their own path on abortions through their legislative bodies.

Oh, and have you noticed that all the people who support abortion are already born? Are they simply unhappy they were born?
