Trump’s War on Contraception

Donald Trump’s plan for his second term includes a push to make it harder to obtain birth control. This follows several other Republican-led initiatives to make it more difficult for Americans to use contraception, including condoms. What’s next, forced impregnation? Guns and marijuana, on the other hand, are still easy to get.

    A nice example of doublespeak backspin can be found in this White House press release. Team Biden uses up a lot of pixels to humble-brag in a hard-hitting, exactly-so tone of outrage about all the ways they’re fighting H. A. R. D. for women’s reproductive freedom.

    But the crucial point? Roe v. Wade went under during the Biden preznitcy. Not during Trump’s first term. What’s that? Trump appointed the justices? That’s right. And that’s how you do it. That Trump will accede to his base’s frothing-at-the-mouth histrionics about abortion is obvious. And the dems will relegate abortion back to who-cares status (i.e., rich democrats don’t have to worry about access to abortion) except for brief flurries of alarm in their fundraising messages.

  • Trump would not have the opportunity to try to make it more difficult to obtain birth control
    if the treacherous Dems had had ANY intent to codify Roe v. Wade, the justification they used for decades to ask for campaign donations.

    Of course, for these profoundly cynical cretins there was never any intent to follow through …
    but only a plan to financially milk the theoretical grand project. Now the project has been deflated from guaranteeing personal privacy to trying preserve access to birth control.

    Rank and file Dems just accept this particular abuse, without reflection but with a shrug of the shoulder and proclamations of the mental acuity of Biden and the integrity of the DNC.
