When women get mad, they get motivated. And right now, millions of women and those who identify as women are furious that we’re in jeopardy of losing our Constitutional rights to decide when to carry a pregnancy to full term.
If women’s abortion rights are overturned by the Supreme Court, it would be the reversal of a nearly 50-year-old precedent. To make matters worse, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell told USA Today that if Republicans retake the Senate in the midterms and if the high court does indeed toss Roe v Wade, a national abortion ban is “possible.”
Even as Democrats plan a vote to codify Roe, it’s uncertain if they’ll have the votes from centrists Kyrsten Sinema and Joe Manchin, who seem to care more about protecting the filibuster than a person’s bodily autonomy. But with the impending SCOTUS decision putting future generations of reproductive health at risk, the Republicans have now lit a fire under younger female voters who might have otherwise sat out a midterm election.
Mitch McConnell now says it’s possible Republicans will pass a nationwide BAN on abortion if Roe v. Wade is overturned. Republicans are radical extremists. They must be stopped.

The political and cultural implications of what we now face are enormous, with extremist “ultra MAGA candidates” literally hell-bent on setting us back to the Dark Ages while not making any new provisions for all of those extra mouths to feed.
NEW: WI GOP Gov. candidate Rebecca Kleefisch, who agreed women who are raped should "make lemons out of lemonade," just said she supports banning abortion with NO exceptions for rape or incest.

The panel on “The Sunday Show with Jonathan Capehart” didn’t hold back on explaining what happens at the polls when you have an angry voting base motivated by losing their basic human rights.
