Tens of thousands of people have been holding rallies across all 50 US states in support of abortion rights.
They have been galvanised in opposition to a new Texas law that severely limits access to abortions in the state.
The start of the rally was disrupted by some two dozen counter-demonstrators.
"The blood of innocent babies is on your hands!" shouted one man, but he was drowned out by the singing and clapping of the crowd, the Washington Post newspaper reported.
One woman who attended a march said she was there to support a woman's right to choose.
"While I've never been faced with that choice fortunately, there are many women who have and our government and men have no say in the outcome when it comes to our bodies," Robin Horn told Reuters news agency.

Why do they call it "Abortion Rights" when it should be "Abortion Wrongs"?
Maybe for the same reason they call it "pro choice" and not "pro murder"?
Just how stupid are we becoming?

The marches are set to erupt and even explode early in 2022 when in all likelihood the Supreme Court overturns its infamous 1973 Roe v Wade ruling. The SCOTUS hearing of the Dobbs case from Mississippi starts early December, and a decision is expected within weeks. Some pundits are predicting a 5:4 decision, others are saying 6:3.

Overturning Roe v Wade won't of course end abortion -- it would simply return the matter to the States, leaving it to the voters and legislatures of each individual State to decide their abortion laws. As before Roe, some Stares will allow abortion and some won't.

The overturn of Roe v Wade will be a galvanising event in American politics.

The hypocrisy of the liberals.

We (group of wild-eyed-$hit-for-brains-mouth-breathers) oppose the death penalty for convicted/guilty murderers, and we support the murder of innocent babies.
We are soooo virtuous - we really really care about women and babies.

It's called pro choice. Let the woman decide what she wants to do. Don't force her to carry a pregnancy she doesn't want for whatever reason. Conservatives are no less hypocrites for their desire to force their crazy beliefs in those women and then supporting the state killing people.

The pro-life position would have a much stronger argument if it continued to support those same babies once they were born.

The argument is basically "you can't kill your child, and your on your own once they are born."

SB8, the Texas law, has no protections for victims of rape and incest.

Bounty hunters can sue to make $10 000 off *anyone* who assists those particular women terminate the pregnancy… including Uber drivers and receptionist.

The ghoulish inhumanity of the Christian conservatives… and if you want to make a case for hypocrisy, those same conservatives argue that making guns illegal won’t stop gun crime… but… making abortion illegal is exactly how you stop abortion.

Yeah, the holier than thou Christian fundamentalists who tell everyone else how they should live their life. Like you.
As opposed to the oh so virtuous (and clever) liberals?

"You should have the right to do anything you want".
"You should have the right to murder your own children".
