Two years ago the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade with the disastrous Dobbs ruling that upended abortion access in the U.S. and put all other reproductive rights in harms way. On the second anniversary of Dobbs, abortion activists showed up at the Supreme Court building in Washington D.C. to show their support for access to legal and safe abortions. A group of anti-abortion demonstrators were also in attendance.

  1. Did any of the justices even report for work today, to know there are protests outside the building?

    I mean, honestly, the place they should be protesting is at the Capitol so the legislators will know that enshrining abortion and reproductive rights into law is on the minds of the electorate. The alternative is, letting those legislators know at the ballot box in a few months. It’s in their best interests to start pulling the legislation together now, before someone else does it for them.

  2. Didn’t see any tactical gear in the pix. I guess they’re not doing this protesting thing correctly.

  3. From Orwell:

    “to hold simultaneously two opinions which cancelled out, knowing them to be contradictory and believing in both of them” This was called doublethink in 1984.

    Like “pro life” and pro bumpstock.

  4. Starting to think that people pimping a white, rich Jesus shouldn’t be allowed untaxable, unmonitored political carte blanche in our society.

  5. Or…just a mashup: Pro Baby Bumpstock
