I’m for abortion rights. Always have and always will be. But this kind of stupid, weaselly, manipulative braying puts me right off. If Roe is repealed, that might eventually lead to some legislation in some places that might make abortion somewhat more inconvenient for some women for a period of time. That’s not a great rallying cry, I know. But normalizing the narrative that “if you don’t give me exactly what I want immediately, you are a murderer” isn’t worth it.
Have we learned nothing during COVID that we keep allowing this to happen? And it’s completely a both-sides thing. Last night, for example, some simpleton came to the blog to tell me that my support for Ukraine will “walk us into WWIII” and guess what? Blood will be on my hands, of course. It’s the same kind of primitive, moronic crap. “You are like literally murdering people when you say something I vaguely dislike.” So boring.
“I don’t want to die!” people wailed all winter whenever anybody suggested that it’s time to head back to work. We let them do it, and now they throw this tantrum over absolutely anything that strikes their fancy.
