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.

The 'milk' of men
The English National Health Service ensures that the milk produced by a male body -stimulated with ad hoc drug therapy- is as good for the newborn as that of its mother, who is wiped out. Minimising the risks to the child's health largely offset by the ideological and symbolic benefits. It is the transhuman, my beauties!
Men's 'milk' is a perfect example of what we call transhuman. Women's milk, on the other hand, is human, all too human, it is the perfect model of the enduring human, and therefore natural breastfeeding should be degraded, mocked, stigmatised as something to be ashamed of and kept hidden. In fact, it is even a useless and unethical act. On the contrary, promoting and magnifying male 'breastfeeding' shows plastically the way forward. According to the prestigious journal Pediatrics, organ of the American Academy of Pediatrics, it is 'risky' to define [...]

How to convince progressives to give up gender
Terrified of transactivists and worried about sounding 'right-wing', left-wingers support the transition of minors even in the absence of studies showing that 'affirmative therapy' works and promotes the well-being of gender non-conforming girls and boys. "But everyone has a right to evidence-based medicine," argue some liberals determined to "break the spell". And they start DIAG -Democrats for an Informed Approach to Gender- to convince democrats in the US and around the world that continuing on this path is wrong and dangerous. For children and for the left. An article by Bernard Lane
A new movement of US Democrats wants to find out how to break the spell of gender ideology and bring the party back to the liberal values of science and reason. Democrats for an Informed Approach to Gender (DIAG) launched a project yesterday on X Space (Twitter) to commission research on how to more effectively reach out to left-wing voters who believe that science is now in favour of 'gender-affirming' medicalisation of gender non-conforming youth. "The only way to end this [...]

New York Times: Strong doubts about hormones for children with gender dysphoria
The world's leading woke newspaper has always unhesitatingly supported transactivist demands, starting with the indecent treatment of JK Rowling. Today the paper changes course and in a very long article criticises the 'affirmative therapy' (puberty blockers, hormones and surgery) for trans minors, giving a voice to some hitherto censored and ostracised detransitioners. Because by now even many Democratic voters have strong doubts. And there is a risk of losing many readers: "get woke, go broke".
For years, the New York Times has been the world's leading woke newspaper and has always unhesitatingly supported transactivist demands, jubilating critical voices. The treatment of JK Rowling is exemplary. In 2022 a very violent subscription campaign invited people to imagine Harry Potter without its creator: the ultimate in cancel culture (see here) A misogynistic and aggressive gesture - the initiative turned out to be a boomerang and many female subscribers threatened to cancel -. A few months ago The Daily published [...].

Men IntintA and other wonders
The health of 'Marco', a trans FtM who is five months pregnant with testosterone, and that of her baby are the least of the problems. What matters to the liberal press talking about an 'anthropological revolution' is whether 'Marco' is to be called mother or father. But only a woman can give birth even if at the registry office her name is male. In this nothing has changed since the dawn of time. In the meantime, the trans front is losing ground: in one year, the number of members of WPATH, the largest transgender health organisation, has fallen by 60 per cent.
La Repubblica online headlines with a triple somersault about the 'young man who got pregnant': pregnant is not dared even at the transphilic GEDI group. The story is that of 'Marco', a girl undergoing testosterone therapy to look more like a man: beard, graver voice -not to 'become male' because sex cannot be changed and every single cell will remain damned XX-. 'Marco' had retained his uterus and ovaries and following a hetero sexual relationship (a [...]

Child rapists: shock report in UK
In Great Britain, 18 rapes a day are committed by minors on their peers: in 2022 these cases numbered 15,000, almost always by very young males. A British police report shows how free access to violent pornography online is normalising criminal sexual behaviour in England and all other Western countries
For years, we have been reporting on the psychological and material damage produced on an entire generation by free access to violent online pornography, consumed by boys and girls from the age of 7 but also much earlier: gang rapes committed by minors are just the tip of the iceberg of this dramatic phenomenon, which has now been analysed and quantified by a study by the British police. On this topic you can find previous articles here, here, here and here. We were almost only [...]

New Hampshire: No more 'sex change' surgery on minors
The US state has passed a bill banning surgeons from performing operations on under-18 year olds such as the removal of ovaries and breasts for females and penises and testicles for males. The bill states that these operations violate the patient's 'informed consent' and points out that studies have not shown a decrease in the suicide risk of minors after the operations. On the contrary: the danger increases
New Hampshire is preparing to ban under-18s from undergoing sex-change operations. Last Thursday, the New Hampshire House of Representatives passed a bill to this effect, also with the help of some Democratic members. House Bill 619 prohibits doctors from performing 'any genital gender reassignment surgery', i.e. the removal of the uterus, ovaries and breasts in the case of women; testicles and penis for men, to anyone in the [...]
