Abortion: now comes the war
Abortion: now comes the war
7 hr ago
I’m writing this a few minutes after the Supreme Court decision, so I’m not making reference to widespread violence. Yet.
I’m talking about the propaganda war, which will be huge.
Basically, the Court’s decision places abortion back in the States. Each State makes its own laws. The majority of politicians and academics and lawyers hate this idea with white-hot fury.
The last thing they want is: federalist principles actually working: power divided between the federal government and State governments.
They want all the power at the top. For themselves.
Ideally, they want to wipe out State powers altogether.
Decentralization keeps them up at night. They see it as the bastard child of nasty Constitutionalists who refuse to acknowledge the glorious dreams of absolute tyranny.
Decentralization and the powers of the states are the silver bullet in the heart of the werewolf.
THEREFORE, you’re going to see ceaseless attacks aimed at the states vis-à-vis abortion.
“Don’t believe anyone can still get an abortion just because half the states will permit it. You have to travel. What about the single working women who can’t take time off to go to New York for an abortion? What about the poverty-stricken women who can’t afford a bus ticket? What about underserved communities?”
“Those states who outlaw abortion are now active reservoirs of white supremacists and racists. They’ve been empowered. They pose a clear and present danger…”
“No state should be able to stand in for the federal government. And that is what this Supreme Court decision is promoting. If abortion is now the property of each state, what’s next? State laws against black people voting? Are we going to travel back in time to the brutal days before enlightened progressivism took hold in this country?”
The fact that states now decide the abortion issue on their own will be attacked from every conceivable angle.
If you don’t think this war is important, you’re not thinking.
Federal power versus powers of the states.
“The states are basically evil. We all know that. Every significant human advance over the two centuries has been won AGAINST the states.”
“We have to standardize not only abortion, but all election laws and all qualifications to vote---from above. From the federal level. Therefore, the Electoral College must be abolished. It favors the states. A President must be chosen by popular vote…”
Same basic issue.
And you’re going to see this: Everybody and his brother, sniffing the possibility of government money (both state and federal), is going to set up a 501c3 that accepts grants and straight funding, to assist women to travel to a state that permits abortions.
The press will run gripping human interest stories on the efforts. Somebody will call it THE NEW UNDERGROUND RAILROAD.
“Women who can’t get abortions in their home states are basically SLAVES. And they have to flee to exercise their natural rights…”
What about Globalists? Think it through. In trying to erase national borders and set up one system of governance for the planet, which route is easier? Capturing the US federal government, or also battling against 50 States with their own powers?
Someone is going to claim a) slavery would still be the law of the land were it not for the federal government, and b) the right to an abortion is in exactly the same situation now.
Which is also saying the size and power of the federal government in 1865 is the size and power of the federal government now. Absurd.
Our future depends on DECENTRALIZATION OF POWER. Along all lines.
