Or…What have we lost with Roe v. Wade? [5-2-2022]
On this – the 108th day of my treasured Mom’s birth, another historic event happened. Not a joyful or blissful event, but the tragic ‘passing’ of yet another historic loss of Women’s Rights: Lawful abortion. Roe vs. Wade is overturned after 50 years by a puppet Supreme Court regime – bound to destroy the Constitution and all civil liberties that have been fought for these oh so many years.
Now truth be told – I fought, I marched, I celebrated the victory of many civil rights issues in the 70’s – but I didn’t lay down my life or suffer undue hardship because of my part in the fight – as many did – they DIED in their fight against injustice. As for abortions: Many of our young women died through illegal abortions due to economics, unstable relationships, rape, incest, bigoted assaults – yet the so called ‘righteous pro-lifers’ and misogynistic politicians continued to call out for the ‘rights’ of the unborn fetus. The fetus that they never knew, never would know, never would support or care for, never deeming to know the mother or father and would never care for once born – but be the first to call out against welfare or ‘Juvenile delinquents, who often turn to crime as adults – and which should be ‘locked up’, with the key thrown away – in order to keep white families safe in their gated communities. (In deference to locking up our white collar criminals and politicians.)
I abhor the current political climate, the hate and bigotry within the U.S., the following of evil and treasonous politicians and dictators, who hide behind their office – controlled by God knows who, and willingly sacrifice their country and the minds of the free to be puppets of evil. And what could possibly be the end goal? Tell me – because I’d really like to know.
And who is next? During the previous regime first were the Muslims. Then the Blacks. Then the Asians. Then women’s rights. Next, for sure is the LGBTQ. But it can’t stop there. The Jews? Disabled? The scholars? The Scientists? Certainly not the right wing – white Christian majority. No they’re the sacred cows…until they step out of line with the fuehrer of the day.
If this sounds familiar, all you have to do is step back in time to 1930’s-40’s-WWII and the Nazi/Hitler regime. Many of those living at the time will claim ignorance to what was happening. They may claim they simply couldn’t believe that life as they once knew it would be shattered forever, or that families would be ripped apart, people murdered in the streets, hundreds of extermination camps and systematic death and annihilation of millions, brutal savage rape and medical experimentation and torture could occur within their own 4 walls. But it did and we are on the verge of reenacting this monstrous and evil history.
What will your defense be (if you live through this) to your children and grandchildren? That you didn’t see it coming? But – you did and you do. What will your maker say to you when you go to your final ‘reward’? Even if you’re an Atheist – you probably have at least a smidgling of doubt that there won’t be some Karmic ending to this life on earth. Exactly what will you justify to your Almighty?
Which brings me back to abortion rights – Think about this long and hard: Will your God ask “What did you do my child?” Will you say: “I wrote to my reps and religious leaders to end abortion. I protested and threw stones at Planned Parenthood. I held a gun towards a doctor performing abortion in clinics, and reveled when I heard that one had been slain and taken out of ‘practice’. I hated and defiled women seeking abortions. ….I did my part!!” Then (this is just a guess mind you) your God may ask: “But what did you do for the women and families seeking these services – or the children that came due to the abolishing of legal abortion? Did you fight as hard a fight for their dignity and life circumstances as you did for your theory of what you thought I Might want?“
This is where it might get a bit sticky – and likely – if there’s a trap door at the pearly gates, then your Bible thumping ass is gonna drop down faster than in the Tower of Terror at Universal studios. If only for the impudence of believing that you know more than God. Just a guess mind you….. and that doesn’t even come close to what the rest of the regime is going to face. And trust me on this – I don’t believe there’s any ‘buying’ your way out of this final destination that we all face.
So in closing, brethren – I say to you: Take heed and fight against all tyranny. Choose right from wrong, and when you have a choice – choose the path that will better humankind, this earth and all living creatures upon it. Because THAT, my friend, is what you will be judged on…. And that alone.
