‘Sick’: Democratic Senator Shows Off His ‘Heart’ Abortion Pin At SOTU | Eastern North Carolina Now

    Sen. Ed Markey (D-MA) wore an "abortion" pin that included a heart inside the letter "o" to the State of the Union address Tuesday night, sparking criticism online.

    The Democratic Party has become increasingly radical in its abortion stance, moving away from the oft-cited "safe, legal, and rare" position to advocating for taxpayer-funded abortion on demand.

    "I'm wearing my abortion pin from [Planned Parenthood Federation of America] to tonight's State of the Union address," Markey captioned two photos. "Abortion is essential healthcare and we need to codify this right."

    The senator was hit with some criticism online, including from nonprofit Susan B. Anthony Pro-Life America. "SICK," the group's Twitter account reacted.

    "You're not just wearing an 'abortion pin'...you're wearing a [heart] abortion pin indicating that you LOVE abortion," pro-life advocate Obianuju Ekeocha replied. "You are an evil depraved man."

    "Democrat man wears pin showing his love of abortion, which violently ends human life in the mother's womb," author and commentator Mollie Hemingway said.

    The GOP House Judiciary Twitter account simply wrote, "Disgusting." Markey responded, "What's disgusting is the GOP's obsession with controlling people's bodies."

    "Congress must restore the right, and the - Congress must restore the right that was taken away in Roe v. Wade and protect Roe v. Wade. Give every woman [inaudible] right," Biden said during his address, according to a New York Times transcript.

    "The vice president and I are doing everything to protect access to reproductive health care and safeguard patient safety. But already, more than a dozen states are enforcing extreme abortion bans," he added. "Make no mistake about it: If Congress passes a national ban, I will veto it."

    Following the overturning of Roe v. Wade in June, Markey similarly lashed out.

    "What we have feared most has come to pass. A stolen, illegitimate, and far-right majority on the Supreme Court has destroyed nearly fifty years of precedent guaranteeing the constitutional right to an abortion," the senator said in a press release. "The overturning of Roe v. Wade and Planned Parenthood v. Casey is an egregious and overtly political act that jeopardizes the health, safety, and freedom of millions of Americans."

    "I once again ask my Senate colleagues, what other judicial outrage must we endure from the illegitimate Supreme Court majority before we act?" he continued. "The most fundamental rights we hold dear as Americans are at stake. The right to privacy is at stake. The right to use contraception is at stake. The right to marry who you love is at stake. And with this decision, the very lives of those seeking to exercise their right to reproductive freedom are at stake."

    "We must act now and expand the Supreme Court to bring balance to the bench and restore its legitimacy in the eyes of the American people," Markey urged.

With Roe v Wade (originated in 1973) overturned by the US Supreme Court, thereby allowing decisions on abortion legislation completely returned to the states: Where do you find your position on such a "Life and Death" issue for the American People?
  Yes, I approve of the US Supreme Court's decision to reinstate this "medical" issue back to the states' legislative responsibility to regulate.
  No, I believe that every woman should have complete access to abortion on demand.
  This issue is far beyond my intellectual capacity to understand.

Considering how abjectly corrupt and civilly abusive the Left has become regarding the corrosive effect of their elected leaders; their entrenched and ruling bureaucracy; employing their failed Education Industry as Indoctrinators; their collusive private sector operators, such as the terminally discredited Legacy Media and Big Tech censorship of Free Speech: What will be the best course forward for hardworking Middle Americans, including the Patriot Class?
  Withdraw from society, go underground and plan for a resurgence when it is feasible to do so.
  Work within the confines of better policy by the People's government, once good sense and sanity is restored in the electorate at large, to achieve such.
  Are you a crazy, nut-job Insurrectionist? Everything is perfect within our plan to achieve our intended goals for the Socialist Left.
  Secession to form a true Constitutional Republic.
