How they won the war on Roe
Not having transformed Roe v. Wade in law was the capital mistake of the American left, starting with Barack Obama. Abortion was a completely secondary issue for liberals absorbed in trans-politics, who spent the years erasing the word "woman" by renaming it "menstruator" and "uterus-bearer", rather than dealing with women's rights

How did pro-life Americans win the war against Roe v. Wade? In the article of which we present extensive excerpts, journalist Sarah Ditum explains how the carelessness and arrogance of the Democrats have unintentionally helped to 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 ruling that “Roe was terribly wrong from the beginning” is leaked almost two months ago, so iformal release of the sentence was a bitter pill, but certainly not a surprise.

Certainly the major responsible is Donald Trump. His administration, which gave the impression of being made up of improvised loyalists and which in fact was short-lived, somehow managed to appoint three - three! - Supreme Court justices, all conservative to the core.

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

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

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

This legislation, which he would codify Roe v. Wade , it should have been “the first thing I will do as president”, as he 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 doesn't bother to apply a minimum of effort to the issue.

[…]

Thirteen states already have “trigger laws” in place ready for the end of Roe, which means abortion will be banned within a month. Abortion opponents were ready for all this. Abortion opponents have been ready for a long time.

Why, then, the pro-choice Americans have been absolutely inept in the face of all this? I'm talking about Obama, Ginsburg, and even organizations like Planned Parenthood and the ACLU, which have spent the last few years doing campaigns against the word “woman” instead of defending women's rights.

[…]

While the right diligently eroded women's rights, lon the left he responded by offering the women blackmail. Stay with us, because the others are even worse. Of course, it's not dignified to be called a “menstruator” or a “uterus bearer”, but this is the price to pay to enter the liberal big tent. If you don't want to be reduced to your reproductive system, you'd 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 like a banality, a deal already done, something they could threaten women with (“imagine if you could lose this!”), but he never actively defended it.

[…]

It is worth mentioning that American women don't have a compulsory maternity leave at a national level. […] You might think that a pro-life policy would begin with job protection for the women who are supposed to raise these sacred children, but sadly not. There is a terminal inability on the American right to imagine that the woman who carries an unwanted pregnancy to term will be the same woman who can't pay her rent four weeks later because she can't go to work.

But the left is not very different when it insists on saying that it is not a question of a "woman", but simply of a set of organs that gives birth, that breastfeeds, that bleeds. 

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