the republicans on the supreme court
the ones who were appointed by two presidents who did not win the popular vote
worked out a way to end abortions
worked out a way to tell a woman
she had to be a mother
worked out a way to erase all the hard work and litigation and precedent
over all these years.
and now i cannot concentrate.
i have so much work to do and i cant do it.
not because i think they will get away with it
but because the supreme court was supposed to be one place
where the smart people worked.
where logic and the law and the constitution
were the things that protected America
from politics and religion and power and blah blah blah
but its not the case anymore.
these people dont care that women are gonna die
or have to give birth to the kids of rapists
or have to give birth to kids whose daddies they’ll never know.
dont we have enough problems?
why is controlling what happens between a woman and her doctor
of such importance to these justices?
we are in dark days
and thats why i cant focus.
