Put these authoritarian thugs back in power?

 

Republican senator’s push to arrest abortion protesters meets GOP resistance 

 Some GOP senators say Sen. Tom Cotton is going too far with his call to arrest and prosecute protesters outside the homes of Supreme Court justices.


"Some?" 

That means other Trumpublicans are just fine with arresting and prosecuting Americans exercising their Constitutional rights.

Trumpublicans and their followers attacked the U.S. Capitol and tried to reverse through force a free and fair election.

Now one of their Senators proposes taking away our 1st Amendment rights.



Also, I just read this:


The GOP is pushing to classify abortion as MURDER nationwide. And since there is no statute of limitations on murder, any woman who has EVER had an abortion could be charged.

Maybe they are not protesting. Maybe the people there are just on a DC Home Tour?

I mean if you can deface and vandalize the US Capitol, violently attack federal officers sworn to protect Congress, threaten the Vice President of the United States with hanging, and then actually build the gallows, while disrupting a Constitutionally mandated duty of that body, and have it be called a tourist function, why not this little protest?

"Ex post facto laws are expressly forbidden by the United States Constitution in Article 1, Section 9, Clause 3 (with respect to federal laws) and Article 1, Section 10 (with respect to state laws)". (source: Wikipedia).

So women shouldn't be able to be prosecuted for prior "murders", only future "murders". So, if you have a hankering to murder a baby - and are a woman who lives in a state where it is still legal - you should get pregnant asap. Get in your baby murdering NOW before it becomes illegal.

Yes, Derv, the Trumpublicans call every form of abortion "killing babies." Their ignorance on this subject is monumental. I wonder if a female in their family had an ectopic pregnancy, would they just let her die so the embryo could be saved? (fact: there is no way to save an embryo in the fallopian tube where it causes an ectopic pregnancy.)

This is the sort of unnecessary deaths that will happen in America if the SCOTUS sends us back in time.

Ireland, a Catholic country, now allows abortion.

The law that Alito and his fellow Catholics want to change is a law governed by Catholic doctrine.

Other religions are NOT against abortion.

Ectopic pregnancy is attachment (implantation) of a fertilized egg in an abnormal location. In an ectopic pregnancy, the fetus cannot survive. When an ectopic pregnancy ruptures, women often have abdominal pain and vaginal bleeding, which, if not treated, can be fatal.

I've heard people argue that ectopic pregnancies are rare. Two of my friends had them, but were saved from death by medical professionals who believe in science, not in one religion's doctrine.

Power, as well as the desire for power, corrupts. tRumpublicans have absolutely been deeply and irrationally corrupted.
