Aborted

There is no fury like scorning half the population

It will do little good to dwell on the ideology that led the Supreme Court of the United States to overturn Roe v. Wade today, but it’s worth reflecting on how we got here.

All of the current members of the Supreme Court have been nominated by recent presidents, although some recent nominees never made it to Court (McConnell prevented the nomination of Merrick Garland in 2016).

In an election that will not soon be forgotten, in 2016, Trump defeated Hilary Clinton. It shouldn’t be lost on us that Bill and Hilary Clinton urged Trump to run, sure that he would be easily beaten. More importantly, this meant Trump nominated to the Supreme Court people who would match his ideology.

Although she was out of touch of the basic interests and needs of the people in the U.S. Hilary was able to make to the general election with a lot of help from the DNC.

If you’re wondering how we have arrived at today – a day that the Supreme Court endangered, subjugated, and harmed a good portion of the population – look at the politics and political infighting that has led us here.

If you’re wondering how to move on from today and create a system that ensures people’s rights, safeties, and liberties, then work to change politics as we know it. The politics, policies, and infighting that got us here will not get us out of here.
