I was floored by this headline.
There are just no words to describe this level of hypocrisy.
“As I read the U.S. Supreme Court’s draft opinion overturning Roe v. Wade, I was devastated. It was shocking to see, laid out in cold legalese, the blatant ideological reasoning gutting the constitutional right to abortion.
I understand the frustration that many are feeling. I feel it too. Roe has been the law of the land for 49 years, nearly my entire lifetime. But it may not be the law of the land for my daughters. Many of us feared this day would come, which is why last month, I filed a lawsuit and, drawing on authority granted to me as governor, asked the Michigan Supreme Court to immediately resolve whether our state constitution includes the right to access abortion.
As a woman born and raised in Michigan, I have a moral obligation to stand up for the rights of the nearly 2.2 million Michigan women who will lose their right to make decisions about their own bodies if Roe falls …”
Did you hear this?
Gov. Gretchen Whitmer believes you have an inviolable constitutional right to make decisions involving your own body and health. We should trust you, not politicians, to make decisions regarding your own body. You have a sovereign, absolute right to personal autonomy.
Note: This is a spectacular illustration of the incoherence of Liberalism 3.0. Even if you take liberalism seriously, the right to life is supposed to be the basis of the rights to liberty and property. Today, women have the constitutional right to end the lives of their own children for lifestyle reasons. The state can violate your right to liberty by forcing you to get vaccinated over a virus with a 99% survival rate.
