Dems Plan To Push Abortion Issue As 2nd Anniversary Of Roe Overturning Nears: Report | Eastern North Carolina Now

Senate Democrats plan to gin up the abortion issue as the nation nears the second anniversary of the overturning of Roe v. Wade in an effort to win voters in potentially crucial swing states.

    Senate Democrats plan to gin up the abortion issue as the nation nears the second anniversary of the overturning of Roe v. Wade in an effort to win voters in potentially crucial swing states.

    "Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) is planning to zero in on reproductive rights next month," Axios reported. Sen. Debbie Stabenow (D-MI), the No. 3 Senate Democrat, said, "We are certainly going to be talking a lot about [abortion]."

    "I imagine that there'll be some more policy legislation that will be discussed - whether it's on the floor or through committee gatherings," Sen. Ben Ray Lújan (D-NM) echoed.

    Democrats went on the attack after Alabama's Supreme Court ruled in mid-February that embryos are children, thus imperiling the use of in vitro fertilization (IVF). Within a week, Sen. Tammy Duckworth (D-IL) introduced the ''Access to Family Building Act,'" which would protect the right to IVF treatment; she asked for a unanimous consent vote on her bill, which could have let the bill evade the normal process of review. The bill was blocked by Senate Republicans, who felt the legislation was too broad.

    "If passed, the AFBA would give any adult the statutory right to create a child using any reproductive technology, including the cloning and genetic editing made possible by CRISPR," the Heritage Foundation noted. "Indeed, the bill 'pre-empt[s] any state effort to limit such access,' meaning that states would be helpless to pass common-sense regulations for IVF that guard against ethical abuses. Colorado's prohibition on anonymous gamete donation and Louisiana's embryo protection law, for example, would be in jeopardy if Duckworth's bill becomes law."

    But the Alabama GOP-dominated legislature then passed a bill in early March, signed by Governor Kay Ivey, that protected in vitro fertilization providers from any potential legal liability, making it a moot issue.

    On Monday, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) and Sen. Katie Britt (R-AL) introduced the IVF Protection Act. An interviewer for Bloomberg asked them why they were introducing a national bill after the Alabama legislature had effectively blocked the state's Supreme Court ruling. "Unfortunately, we've seen a number of people try to fearmonger on this very issue," Britt responded, referring to the Democrats' response to the Alabama Supreme Court's ruling. "And so Ted and I came together and we believe this effort should be bi-partisan."


    Cruz then said of Duckworth's bill, "That bill is a different bill. That bill really seeks to backdoor in broader abortion legislation, which is where the Democratic are, but that's not IVF ... It was ostensibly about IVF, but it was written to give the federal government authority over abortion, potentially to strike down laws governing abortion in states all across the country. I get that's the Democrats' agenda."

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.

With respect to the leaked opinion not yet written for ratification regarding the U.S. Supreme Court's revisiting the original decision of Roe v Wade, whence now nonstop protests have erupted in neighborhoods where U.S. Supreme Court justices live, exhibiting the firm intent to intimidate these officers of the highest court in the land: What action should the federal authorities take?
  Do nothing ... Protests are a fixture of a free society.
  Enforce the law ... Federal codes exist to prohibit any intimidation through the pubic harassment of federal judges, especially Supreme Court justices.
  I have no idea, however, northern Virginia School Board Members must be shielded from protests at all costs.

So far, the actual voting public tends to agree with me. We will find out in November.

There are a lot more women passionately involved in the Pro-Life movement than men. They have a more direct concept of what it means to kill a baby.

Don't you love old white men who gonna tell women how to manage their lady bits? Good luck with that.

The reality is that a recent poll of suburban women found that inflation and cost of living are now a more important issue to them than abortion, and it is Bidenflation that is going to kill Biden's campaign. Women buy gas and they do much of the grocery shopping so they see the damage Biden has done to their family budgets first hand.

And calling killing babies "health care" is pretty sick. Do you also think an executioner in a prison is a "health care provider"?

But women concerned about their health care certainly can. It sunk the MAGAS in 2022 and will be a bigger issue in 2024. You heard it here first.

"Dems Plan To Push Abortion Issue As 2nd Anniversary Of Roe Overturning Nears"

It's extremely sad when a political party (or anyone really) supports abortion as a viable option to pregnancy. Although all pregnancies are not planned, the resulting embryo/fetus/child is the most innocent among us. I do understand that a woman's body is HER body. And I do understand a fractional percentage of pregnancies result from criminal actions such as rape or incest. And I do understand that deadbeat guys sometimes don't take responsibility. BUT, how are any of these circumstances the fault of the unborn? Why should their life be snuffed out before it begins?

Even if unplanned pregnancies eventually result in abortion, that certainly should not be the preferred resolution. You as a reader of this post may not believe in God but I do and I believe He provides life. And life should be our choice, not death. I can't imagine a loving God being pleased with our society's callous attitude toward life that He provides.

However, being a Demon-Crat does give one very, very little to pin their hopes to. I get that too. But come on, do something to gain viability and respect and don't retreat further into the darkness.

P.S. And "Planned Parenthood" should be forced to post large notices at all their facilities stating their REAL purpose. Killing innocents is not healthcare.

For profound Democratic Socialists, and in the prophetic words of Alice Cooper: "Dead babies can't take things from the shelves."
