I'm a liberal and I just want to say that (1) the riots on the left are stupid and awful and (2) a lot of the opinions on the left are completely idiotic. Abortion should be legal in cases of rape or incest or failed contraception or severe medical issues. Illegal in all other circumstances

But isn’t that the whole strategy? To maintain the status quo and allow the wealthy to continue getting wealthier by preventing a class war through shifting conflict towards issues like pro-life vs pro choice?

The real battleground is income inequality and that would require both the left and right to work together. Of course, it’s the job of the government working for the wealthy to make sure that doesn’t happen.

Not to mention miscarriages. Do women get prosecuted for miscarriage? What if a woman is miscarrying and bleeding out? Doctors in Alabama already turn away women having miscarriages.

87

u/Fast80 Jun 24 '22

It's a mess. What if a woman does something that causes a miscarriage - It would be easy to say "yes" if you are a law maker that's against abortion, in an obvious case. Did she drink to oblivion to cause a miscarriage? What about if someone drank whilst pregnant because the education system in their state doesn't provide any sex education that explains why that can cause a miscarriage. Who is at fault there?

81

u/anthroarcha Jun 24 '22

What if it’s not a thing done purposefully but she didn’t know she was pregnant? A friend of mine went scuba diving and BASE jumping (shes on the wild side) while pregnant, but she didn’t know until she was 5 months along. She had had her period the entire time and was on the depo shot for birth control, and she only found out during routine blood tests at the doctor. She was a little curvy but not overweight and was very physically active, so she didn’t show until after she found out. We all just sat in silence when we she had the baby and he was perfectly normal because we all thought that if the heavy drinking didn’t cause fetal damage, the scuba diving certainly should have caused a miscarriage but they were both fine.

My whole point of that is what if she lived in Texas instead of California? What if she did have a miscarriage after scuba diving or what if the alcohol did cause FAS? Would she have been given the same compassion by the doctors there as she got back home, or would she have been thrown in jail like the countless women that have been in the news recently? I just can’t understand how a person can celebrate a traumatized woman being sent to jail for something beyond her control.

u/MooseBoys Jun 24 '22 edited Jun 24 '22 Take My Energy 'MURICA

Elected representatives can make their own laws befitting their own states unique situations.

Economic policies, sure. But I fail to see how the rights of an individual should vary from state to state - shared belief in the rights and freedoms of the individual is kind of the whole reason to have formed the union of our United States in the first place, and those rights lie squarely in the domain of the constitution. And for the last ~250 years, every time an issue of individual liberty is challenged by a state, it has always been the state that yielded, whether in the courtroom or on the battlefield. This is the first time in the history of our country that the judiciary is willfully relegating the interpretation of individual rights to the hands of state legislators, and in my opinion is a profound dereliction of duty.

Regardless of your opinions on whether abortion should be legal, its legality (or illegality), like all individual rights, must be derived from the constitution. That is the job of the Supreme Court of the United States - to interpret the constitution. Punting these laws back to individual states, regardless of which way you think it should go, is objectively a step backwards.

Long time stalker of this subreddit but I genuinely don't understand how this is a victory for us? Like it's no longer a Nationwide right to choose whether you want abortion or not. Doesn't everyone say to leave it to the household, well that's exactly what giving us the right meant. If we made the 2a no longer a federal right people would be freaking out so why not this one? If my gun ownership rights were left to the state or city I'd be fighting for my life.

This sub is a collection of different persons that are not mutually exclusive.

  1. The conservative - Happy for the reduction of federal powers. Did not create any additional law, but allowed smaller regions to govern themselves.

  2. The christian - Happy for obvious reasons

  3. The classical liberal (myself) - Can take multiple sides dependent on other priorities. However, we view government's role to protect individuals from other individuals, so a more nuanced approach is required that sets the line for when the fetus is an individual worthy of government protections. Having a large universal line (federal) vs. regional lines (states) becomes the real topic, with most likely siding with states.

  4. The politically homeless (myself) - Probably sees abortion as a nuanced issue. Might see this as a win as more nuance can be distributed and discussed at state legislatures. Also, providing a voice to the public as they can elect representatives that represent their views in their region.

There's obviously far more, and individuals be individuals with their own thoughts and reasons. So though /r/Conservative is branded as such, it is far more than simply conservatives.

Well, sort of. A lot of state legislators (especially where I live) are dictated by their twisted morals and personal interests and not that of the wishes of their constituency.

I don't think it will be that simple when dealing with interstate commerce.

Red states have punitive laws for medical providers advising patients to travel to blue states (Texas already has it). In addition, it is a bad look to have a underground network for providing abortion in blue states.

Held: The Constitution does not confer a right to abortion; Roe and Casey

are overruled; and the authority to regulate abortion is returned to the

people and their elected representatives.

Nailed it.

I'm sure many people's social media feeds are filled with the same shit as mine:

- Handmaid's Tale references

- Gun ownership false equivalencies

- Calling the Justices who voted to overturn barbarians

- The usual 'you don't have a uterus' b.s.

- The brave volunteers that say they'll harbor or transport people across state lines, like the state police are going to BOLO for abortion runners. Like they'll be running some underground railroad against tyranny.

What I don't see though, are any rational takes. I don't see people pointing out the fact that Roe v. Wade was a garbage decision that struggled to support itself. There's no clarity of thought that this only kicks the issue back to the states - and most states allow abortion. There's no desire to take a breath and think about why it was overturned. No, it's all about running to the simplest conclusion - which is they are conservative justices who are evil and the next step is banning gay marriage, interracial marriage, and sodomy.

They accuse the right of using the court for political purposes, when all they cheer about and desire is for the left to do the same. They want to expand and take over the court to push progressive policy. You see, it's GOOD when they do it and it's BAD when justices actually look at the law and make their decisions based on that.

Anyone with two working brain cells can look at the rationale of WHY it was overturned and see the merit in it. But that is not how the left works. There is no room for compromise or reason - only reaction. Only emotion and anger when things don't go our way. Conservatives evil, Progressives undisputable good.

The ironic part is that most of the civil unrest will take place in areas where abortion access is unaffected by this.

Because previously the power was given to the individual to make the decision? Idk your comment seems to be disingenuously ignoring why people wouldn’t want this overturned.

Because by this logic slavery should be up to the states. The federal government was protecting individual rights. If states outlawed the ability for a man and woman to get married, people would have a problem.

Yeah screw the federal government! We should also let individual states decide if humans can own other humans. Right guys?

No. Before, the federal government protected a civil right for women to have authority over their bodies.

Now, a state can ban abortion, establishing authority over a woman’s medical decisions.

This ruling is a win for big government…just at the state level.

Go to other sub to read now many popped up cases of rape and other stupid stuffs. They use rape, which makes up a really minority of cases, as an excuse to have abortion.

They’re also coming for contraception for married couples. Do conservative men hate having risk free sex with their wives? I’m genuinely asking. I truly don’t understand the desire to get rid of that…

Unpopular opinion and I post on this sub a lot and consider myself more right leaning but I don’t agree with this. We have taken away a woman’s freedom to choose, & are promoting unsafe abortion practices. I hated the idea of the government mandating a vaccine and it’s the same here, we can do what we want with our bodies. Not trying to start any argument just simply giving my opinion.
