How they won the war against Roe

Failure to turn Roe v. Wade into law was the capital mistake of the American left, starting with Barack Obama. Abortion was an entirely secondary issue for trans-politics-absorbed liberals, who have spent years erasing the word 'woman' by renaming it as 'menstruator' and 'uterus carrier', rather than addressing women's rights

How did American pro-lifers win the war against Roe v. Wade? In the article of which we present you with extended excerpts, journalist Sarah Ditum explains how the Democrats' neglect and arrogance unwittingly helped set women's rights in America back 50 years.


"When did it become certain that American women's right to abortion would be revoked? The Supreme Court's ruling that 'Roe was terribly wrong from the start' is leaked almost two months ago, so theformal release of the ruling was a bitter pill, but certainly not a surprise.

Certainly the main culprit is Donald Trump. His administration, which gave the impression of being composed of improvised loyalists and was in fact short-lived, somehow managed to appoint as many as three -three! - Supreme Court justices, all conservative to the core.

But could never have achieved this without the help of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, a liberal icon of jurisprudence, who missed his chance to retire under the Obama administration and continued working until his last breath at the age of 87 in 2020.

While Ginsburg was collecting applause for his training with the personal trainer, the other side would comfortably wait for him to die. The reward for his service would be to be replaced by Judge Amy Coney Barrett, a staunch pro-life which played a decisive part in the conviction of Roe (and who will probably also support the overturning of gay rights).

Ginsburg could have enjoyed her last victory laps as a feminist heroine at no cost to the cause, if only Barack Obama had kept one of his election promises and freedom of choice bill signed.

This legislation, which would have codified Roe v. Wade should have been 'the first thing I will do as president', as he had said in 2007. Once he became president, however, he was demoted to "it is not my top legislative priority". We thus discover that it is quite difficult for the arc of justice to bend towards history if the guy in charge does not bother to apply any effort to the matter.

[...]

Thirteen states already have 'trigger laws' in place ready for the end of Roewhich means that abortion will be outlawed within a month. The opponents of abortion were ready for all this. The opponents of abortion had been ready for a long time.

Why, then, the American pro-choicers were totally inept in the face of all this? I refer to Obama, to Ginsburg, and also organisations like Planned Parenthood and the ACLU, which have spent the last few years making campaigns against the word 'woman' instead of defending women's rights.

[...]

While the right diligently eroded women's rights, thethe left responded by offering women blackmail. Stay with us, because the others are even worse. Of course, it is not dignified to be called a 'menstruator' or a 'womb-carrier', but this is the price to pay to enter the big liberal tent. If you do not want to be reduced to your reproductive system, you had better start reducing yourself to your reproductive system.

What a cruel joke. The right won the war against Roe because he took abortion seriously. The left lost because they treated it as a triviality, a done deal, something they could threaten women with ('imagine if you can lose this!'), but he never actively defended it.

[...]

It is worth remembering that American women do not have a compulsory maternity leave at the national level. [...] One would think that a pro-life policy would start with employment protection for the women who are supposed to raise these sacred children, but unfortunately not. In the American right there is a terminal inability to imagine that the woman who carries an unwanted pregnancy to term will be the same woman who cannot pay her rent four weeks later because she cannot go to work.

But is not much different from the left, which insists that it is not a 'woman', but simply a set of organs that gives birth, that suckles, that bleeds. 

Obama managed not to use the word 'woman' in his tweet about the Supreme Court ruling. And so did Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the democrats' favourite feminist starlet. America is simply not a country for women, and with the end of Roe, things get much worse.

Transgender' children: it's social contagion. Even the largest trans association admits it
Tik Tok, Youtube and others: the president of WPATH, the world association for trans health, forced to admit that influencers play a large part in the epidemic of transitions among minors, a phenomenon denied by Western progressives who brand every alarm as transphobia. But they do not stop pushing for medicalisation and early surgery
The Honourable Alessandro Zan, first signatory of the infamous bill on gender identity, which ended up in the knighthouse, had denied the dizzying increase in cases of transition of girls and boys, calling the news a 'dangerous statement'. In 2021 there were already numerous statistics indicating the extent of the problem, but apparently Zan was not aware of it - which is unacceptable - or pretended not to know, or more likely ideologically believed that the mere fact of posing the question should be considered proof [...].

The problem is not rooming-in but the loneliness of mothers
After the sad story of the baby who died next to his mother at the Pertini in Rome, for some the solution is to keep the babies in the nurseries and not in the room. But rooming-in was strongly advocated by women who used to be separated from their babies in hospital. It is, if anything, a question of allowing new mothers to have a spouse or wife to assist them. Especially in times of understaffing
Starting with the very painful case of the newborn baby who died at the Pertini hospital in Rome -probably by accidental suffocation, the judiciary will ascertain the causes: it could also be 'cot death' or something else- many and many conclude that rooming-in is a dangerous and wrong practice and that babies should stay in nurseries. I remember, however, that in the past women fought hard for rooming-in and for more than obvious reasons: not to be separated from the newborn after the long cohabitation [...].

Femelliste, a gender critical 'sister' platform is born in France
Harassed, insulted, mocked, threatened: French feminists have collected and catalogued the attacks transactivists have suffered for years. And they have set up an information and training site against the dictatorship of transgender ideology
The name of the site is a play on words that cannot be translated into Italian. The site's creators inform that it has already been used by animal feminists such as Posie Parker, Nicole Roelens and the Boucherie Abolition collective. It would make one think of anti-specism, it is actually more and in some respects a little different. 'Femelle' in French means the female animal (for the human one, the same word as woman, femme, is used). Since they fight for sexual rights [...]

UK: health service backs down on 'transgender maternity' services after midwives revolt
Fighting is needed: in Great Britain midwives and nurses are rebelling against the announced opening of courses and wards dedicated to the pregnancy and birth of 'trans and non-binary' people. And the NHS stops the initiative. Meanwhile, in the USA there is talk of uterus transplants between living people: donor women for the benefit of men who wish to have 'female physiological experiences'. The old patriarchal dream: to take the place of women. Today acted out by neo-patriarchs T
Fighting serves. The revolt of midwives and nurses has foiled the English National Health Service's (NHS) plan to organise dedicated 'transgender maternity' services. On 16 December, an advertisement had appeared to recruit staff to manage the training of 'trans and non-binary people giving birth' in 40 NHS maternity services, an announcement that provoked an immediate reaction from midwives. A group of around 300 nurses, midwives and psychologists wrote an open letter to Lizzie [...]

Holland also puts the brakes on 'trans children'
The 2006 study on which the so-called 'Dutch protocol' exported worldwide is based - the administration of puberty blockers to minors with gender non-conforming behaviour - was financed by the pharmaceutical company that produces the blockers, and has been discredited several times. As in the UK, Sweden, Finland, even in that country they are now calling for a stop to these 'therapies' that cause serious damage to health.
The treatment of children with gender dysphoria with puberty blockers is called the 'Dutch protocol'. And it is based on a single study from 2006 that introduced the concept of 'sex change for transgender children' and was allegedly financed by Ferring Pharmaceuticals, the company that markets tryptorelin, the drug with which the natural development of girls and boys is stopped. This was revealed in a report by journalist Jan Kuitenbrouwer and sociologist Peter Vasterman recently published in the NRC Handelsblad, [...].

The global abolition of sex
The law just passed in Scotland replacing sex with free choice of gender. The one being passed in Spain. And Germany's project. In her article in Newsweek, Kara Dansky also warns the United States about self-id. But from Great Britain, Sweden and Finland come signals in stark contrast: the game is still to be played.
22 December was a black day for gender critical feminism: in spite of lively protests outside Parliament, Scotland passed the law allowing gender self-identification or self-id -without exception for sex offenders who will be able to freely access women's spaces by identifying themselves as women. Also in Spain, the Ley Trans, which has a very similar structure, has passed the first step in the lower house and is on its way to final approval in the coming weeks [...].
