Oh, DAMN, the Democrats are mad.
In the past two weeks, Ohio, Alabama, Georgia, and now, perhaps, Missouri, have passed legislation putting extraordinary restrictions on a woman’s – cough, cough – constitutional right to have an abortion. Democrats are fit to be tied, sounding the alarms from on high, and heading to the tops of the battlements to protect the one “right” they care about more than any other: The right to kill one’s own unborn child.
No one embodied this anger more than “The View” co-host Joy Behar, who, admittedly, is one of the strongest living arguments for abortion in America.
“Can we look at a picture of the panel of men who did this?” she asked on Wednesday as the production people put up a photograph of Alabama Senate Republicans. “They’re all men — all white guys. Maybe we should make it a law that they should all be required to get a vasectomy — that group in particular. That would solve the problem.”
Just, for a moment, think about the reverse of this picture. Imagine if a male host put up a picture of largely-female legislators who had just voted to “teach men not to rape,” or some other fanciful feminist bill. And imagine if his snide remark was something like, “Look, they’re all women. Maybe they ought to all get hysterectomies before they go messing around with men’s business.” It would be a national scandal the likes of which would dominate the headlines for weeks.
We know, we know, double standards and all that. And we know that Joy fancies herself a comedian. But really?
But what can we say? The left is scared to death that they are watching their cherished Roe v. Wade go up in smoke before their eyes. And make no mistake about it, that’s what these state laws are all about. Republicans are merely waiting for some left-wing group to challenge the laws, at which point some court will undoubtedly overturn them. That will potentially set up a challenge for the Supreme Court, and with the court’s makeup more friendly towards life than it has been since before Roe v. Wade, we could indeed see the end of that court’s worst decision.
The anti-abortion revolution has begun.
