And the irony of such preposterous claims being made in a thread about the possible overturning of Roe v Wade is too much.
Only 1 in 3 Americans support overturning Roe, and despite such marginal public support, Republicans have strategically pursued that goal... just ask Merrick Garland about that. Republicans have demonstrated their willingness to ban abortions without providing exceptions for rape. Yet, it's the left that has become more extreme.
If one were to believe those polls, then why on earth haven't the Democrats managed to make this law? they can if they wish remove the filibuster just for that. It seems that whatever the poll they may bring, there are still a few Democrats unwilling to support codifying Roe.
Its not a popular issue, if not, then this would have been law years ago. Its still and remains a polarizing issue.
Because it's not necessary. Roe invoked the 14th amendment, there was nothing new to be written. And it's only a polarizing issue because some people can't keep their religion-based morality out of other people's business.
I know that this is going to get flamed, but if you believe the fetus is a life, what part of that is religion? Granted a lot of people look at this through a lens of religion, but not all.
