The Supreme Court’s draft opinion on the Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization case that was leaked yesterday is a direct threat to a woman’s right to make her own health care decisions and a dangerous step toward dismantling every American’s right to privacy.
A woman has a right to make her own health care decisions without the government getting between her and her medical providers. That right shouldn’t depend on what state she lives in or how far she can afford to drive.
Last year, I cosponsored the Women’s Health Protection Act, a bill that would protect the right to abortion throughout the United States. I also joined a bicameral amicus brief in the case of Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, urging the Supreme Court to uphold nearly 50 years of precedent in Roe v. Wade and protect the constitutional right to abortion care.
Right now, that all hangs in the balance. And if the Court can overturn settled law and established precedent like Roe v. Wade, we shouldn’t be surprised when they come for the decisions that guaranteed same-sex marriage and access to birth control. This is the tip of a very ugly iceberg.
The Court’s decision to take this case and the draft majority opinion make two things clear. The Senate must urgently pass the Women’s Health Protection Act to codify reproductive rights. And the radical-conservative majority of the United States Supreme Court has chosen politics over our constitutional rights.
This cannot stand.
Sincerely, Martin Heinrich
Where were you with this tripe people “have the right to make their own medical decisions” when they were losing their jobs and their small businesses the past two years of the covid medical tyranny state you helped usher in? In a sane world someone so cognitively dissonant would resign in shame if they ever woke up to the utter insane level of hypocrisy of which this tone deaf statement made them guilty of. But since we’re living in Clown World you will simply go on slapping yourself on the back about what a stunning and brave good boy you are to stand up for women’s rights like every other robotic democratic politician is doing at this moment.
But wait, isn’t the new democrat doxy to disavow the existence of men and women? How can you even use the word “women” anymore if you’re also on board with the proposition that women and men are not really a thing anymore because science has been turned on its head to recognize the primacy of feelings instead of facts like xx and yy chromosomes, that are so yesterday and backward, don’t you know? Do your handlers approve of your now forbidden use of language? Haven’t you put yourself over a barrel by purporting to stand for “women’s right” when your side cannot even define what it is to be a woman anymore? And even asserting the fact there’s a difference is grounds for at best censure and at worst cancellation?
Heinrich you’re so full of shit you can’t keep up with all the lies you’ve spun lately and make about as much sense as the mush-mouthed puppet of an illegitimate president leading your party and America on its long march into oblivion. Anyone with an ounce of integrity would maybe pause to do some soul searching before they put out such a loathsome and self-refuting piece of propaganda. But then, never mind, because that would imply you have a soul.
