Since bigger, better, and more eloquent bloggers covered the demise of Roe Vs. Wade, I figured I would go down a different path, and post the email Philadelphia mayor Jim Kenney’s response to the Supreme Court ruling. The bold sentences are my rebuttals.
I am deeply disappointed that the Supreme Court, an institution we depend upon to protect our residents and most fundamental values, has arrived at a decision that will reverse Roe v. Wade and make it even more difficult for people to access an abortion if they make the entirely personal and private decision to seek one. (Hey moron, it’s still legal in Pennsylvania, but you’re lying to strike fear in some women’s minds.) Today is a staggering setback and this decision sadly paves the way for even more attacks on our constitutional rights. (Abortion was never a constitutional right, you drunken idiot.)
The braying ass continues…
Abortion is healthcare. (No, it isn’t.) It is wrong to force someone to remain pregnant when it’s not their choice, (Then maybe keep your legs closed.) when it’s not the right time, or when it’s dangerous to their health or safety — a sad and dire reality for many. (Not really. The chances of a woman dying in pregnancy are about 17.4 percent of every 100,000 births.) It is negligent to “ban abortion” when abortion procedures will still happen but are more likely to be unsafe under restrictive policies, needlessly and knowingly putting people’s lives at risk. (Apparently this jackass doesn’t realize PA will still allow abortions on demand.)
And it is shameful to promote these policies in open pursuit of political power, under a “pro-life” banner and in the name of innocents, while failing to use that power to protect our country’s children from the lethal dangers of poverty and violence.
It’s hilarious that the city’s most egregious seeker of power is claiming the Supreme Court – who have lifetime appointments – are seeking political power. Yeah, I guess they’re all afraid they’ll be fired, huh Kenney? This dolt is arguably the worst mayor in Philadelphia history.
