To the editor: The U.S. is now formally a third-world nation with a draconian Supreme Courtroom. It’s time to use third-world techniques. (“In historic reversal, Supreme Courtroom overturns Roe vs. Wade, liberating states to outlaw abortion,” June 24)
In 2009, the ladies of Kenya referred to as a intercourse strike to settle a political dispute. After one week, the issue was solved. Maybe it’s time for extra drastic measures right here in our personal nation.
I had an unlawful abortion in Texas at 18 because of the rich mother and father of my boyfriend who paid for it. It was carried out throughout the common enterprise hours of an OB-GYN physician. Nothing was hidden.
We have been too younger to marry and lift a baby. I’m without end grateful to them for that reward.
The rich will at all times be capable to have entry to docs. It’s the poor individuals who should go to butchers or convey the undesirable and unloved kids into the world. How dare the Supreme Courtroom put this burden on the poor.
By the best way, I’m 80 years previous. I’ve by no means shared this with anybody, however it’s now time.

To the editor: The abhorrent determination by the Supreme Courtroom has created a bunch of second-class residents. A fetus now has larger rights than any girl or woman of reproductive age. In lots of states, these girls can be relegated to turn into compelled incubators no matter any threat a being pregnant presents, or within the phrases of 1 disgraced congressman, “earthen vessels.”
Gilead got here before any of us anticipated thanks to 6 justices who put their very own private and stringent spiritual beliefs earlier than the rights of Individuals.

To the editor: For antiabortionists, overturning Roe isn’t the top. It’s just the start of the top.
To them, life begins at conception and abortion is homicide. They’ll now struggle to have the Supreme Courtroom declare the fetus or the embryo an individual with 14th Modification safety. In the event that they succeed, the lifetime of the fetus can be entitled to due course of and equal safety together with that of the mom. The implications can be excessive.
Think about an expectant mom whose being pregnant endangers her life having to struggle her fetus represented by a court-appointed legal professional to find out if she will be able to get an abortion. And beneath the U.S. Structure’s Supremacy Clause, a ruling for fetal personhood would invalidate all state legal guidelines granting abortion rights.
That’s the true endgame for the antiabortionists.

To the editor: The overturning of Roe vs. Wade is a step within the march towards authoritarianism. The conservative justices are carrying us away from democracy beneath cowl of “originalism.”
We have now to struggle to stop the authoritarian takeover of our nation. I don’t need my granddaughter, about to be born — or anybody — to stay her life in a rustic the place cruelty is authorized.

To the editor: I’m reminded of a quote from social critic H.L. Mencken, “For each complicated downside there’s a easy answer that’s clear, direct and mistaken.”
Have an alcohol downside? Simply prohibit it. An issue with medicine? Simply declare a warfare on them. And your successor should declare one other one, and their successor as effectively, advert infinitum.
Antiabortion forces shouldn’t be too fast to have fun the overturning of Roe vs. Wade. With most abortions now achieved by treatment relatively than a process, I bid you good luck making an attempt to cease them. You’re going to wish it.

To the editor: So the Supreme Courtroom has determined that it’s constitutional for the federal government to let you know when you can begin your loved ones, simply because the founders supposed. As Jefferson and Madison wrote, “We should enshrine the proper of state governments to make you conform to your neighbors’ spiritual beliefs.”
Or perhaps I’m studying that mistaken?

To the editor: I’m too dumb to personal my uterus, however I can brazenly carry a gun. Attention-grabbing.
