Next year would have marked its fiftieth anniversary .
It feels like we are going back in time. Back to the days of the “Scarlet Letter”
It feels that way because we “are” moving backward, not forward.
All the progressiveness of the 20th century has been shot straight to tarnation in the first quarter 21st century.
In 1970, Jane Roe (a fictional name used in court documents to protect the plaintiff’s identity) filed a lawsuit against Henry Wade, the district attorney of Dallas County, Texas, where she resided, challenging a Texas law making abortion illegal except by a doctor’s orders to save a woman’s life. In her lawsuit, Roe alleged that the state laws were unconstitutionally vague and abridged her right of personal privacy, protected by the First, Fourth, Fifth, Ninth, and Fourteenth Amendments
Roe v. Wade, 410 U.S. 113, was a landmark decision of the U.S. Supreme Court in which the Court ruled that the Constitution of the United States generally protects a pregnant woman’s liberty to choose to have an abortion.
Date decided: January 22, 1973 Trending
Majority: Blackmun, joined by Burger, Douglas, Brennan, Stewart, Marshall, Powell, these were some of the most influential, free thinking justices ever to resides over the Supreme Court.
Argument: Oral argument
Ruling court: Supreme Court of the United States
Location: United States

Some are suggesting gong after birth control next.
I fear other liberties are in danger as well.
This doesn’t surprise me. I guess, next comes the legalization of arse whipping again. Reinstating the thump thick stick rule. Sure rich women won’t be affected by this but poor women lives just changed for the worse. This is where the male worship climate of the last thirty years have landed women and I hope they are happy. This is just the beginning.

I guess while they are on a roll, why not bring back the whipping stick and the ‘scold’s bridle’ or ‘branks’ that was once used on uncontrollable women.

Giving some states back this power you might as well give two year olds loaded guns. That about how dangerous it is. Women need to vote to overtrump this decision.
