Thousands of protesters took to the streets on Friday night to express their anger at the Supreme Court's decision to overturn Roe v. Wade - the 50-year law that guaranteed access to abortion in every state. In New York City, a crowd thousands strong massed in Union Square and Washington Square Park, and then marched up Park Avenue. The crowd massed on Grand Central station, before walking past it and continuing through the Upper East Side. In Washington DC, Union Square was the site of demonstrations, while protesters from Boston to Philadelphia, Atlanta, Detroit and Los Angeles marched in fury.

On Thursday, Joe Biden flashed for the cameras a comical presidential “cheat sheet” that proved just how stage-managed the 79-year-old is by his staff. Besides instructing him to remember to say “hello” and “thank you,” it emphasized basic steps such as “YOU take YOUR seat.” Thanks to a White House mole, The Post was able to smuggle a new cheat sheet into Biden’s jacket pocket when he was taking a quick nap in the Oval Office.

West Village, Manhattan—As Pride weekend nears, the groundbreaking of the Stonewall National Monument Visitor Center in New York City marked a landmark achievement in American history. The 3,700-square-foot building at 51 Christopher St. sits right next door to the Stonewall Inn, where the current bar is located. It honors the queer people who fought for equality at the Stonewall Uprising back in 1969 when police raided the popular gay club for serving liquor without a license. It became a turning point in the modern LGBTQ+ rights movement.(Snip)Organizers said the visitor center will offer an immersive experience through in-person and virtual tours, lecture series, exhibitions

Two of the primary providers in Texas ceased performing abortions on Friday after the Attorney General warned they could be prosecuted immediately. “Some prosecutors may choose to immediately pursue criminal prosecutions based on violations of Texas abortion prohibitions predating Roe that were never repealed by the Texas Legislature,” AG Ken Paxton said in a written opinion issued following the court’s ruling. “Although these statutes were unenforceable while Roe was on the books, they are still Texas law,” Paxton wrote. “Under these pre-Roe statutes, abortion providers could be criminally liable for providing abortions starting today.”

The U.S. Supreme Court’s decision allowing states to ban abortion stirred alarm Friday among LGBTQ advocates, who feared that the ruling could someday allow a rollback of legal protections for gay relationships, including the right for same-sex couples to marry. In the court’s majority opinion overturning the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision, Justice Samuel Alito said the decision applied only to abortion. But critics of the court’s conservative majority gave the statement no credence. “I don’t buy that at all,” said Lawrence Gostin, a professor of medicine at Georgetown University and faculty director of its Institute for National and Global Health Law.

Where abortion is concerned, Alabama just became a different state — not only compared to its former self, but to other areas of America. Following the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn 1973’s Roe v. Wade decision guaranteeing a federal right to abortion, Alabama has outlawed the practice — with one exception. The process began in 2019, when Gov. Kay Ivey signed the Alabama Human Life Protection Act. As noted by WBRC, “The law made performing an abortion at any stage of pregnancy a felony unless the mother’s health was in danger. It did not provide any exceptions for rape or incest.” However, a preliminary injunction was imposed against the ban.

President Biden’s words are coming back to haunt as he was originally primarily against abortion, at one time calling for a constitutional amendment to undo Roe v. Wade, but now he’s all for it, asserting abortion is a fundamental right. Early in Biden’s career, he supported an individual’s right to an abortion but opposed federal funds to pay for them. He went on to back Republican efforts to ban so-called “partial-birth abortions” and said he would have liked to go further in restricting them. In 2006, two years before he was elected vice president, Biden said he did “not view abortion as a choice and a right,” according to CNN.

In 1973, the Supreme Court legalized abortion under the auspices of the “right of privacy,” which it held to “encompass a woman’s decision whether or not to terminate her pregnancy.” While we do have rights that are guaranteed to us despite not being in the Constitution (those natural rights), abortion was never one of them. Not until Roe, at least. It is estimated that more than 63 million babies have been aborted since Roe. That’s more than the combined population of Florida and California. Most recently CDC numbers show nearly 630,000 abortions in 2019 – meaning 195 abortions per 1,000 live births. Abortion has never been a rare procedure since legalization,

Roe V. Wade; Leaves Abortion Restrictions
To States

WASHINGTON — The U.S. Supreme Court has overturned the monumental Roe v. Wade case that legalized abortion across the America. The 6-3 decision on Friday followed the early May leak of a draft opinion indicating which way the justices would rule. That leak prompted protesting across the nation, particularly in Washington, D.C. as well as dozens of attacks and vandalism of pro-life organizations, centers, and churches. Overturning of the landmark 1973 case came in the decision on Dobbs v.s. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, a challenge to a Mississippi law greatly restricting the federal right to abortion

The Supreme Court on Friday overturned Roe v. Wade, the 1973 ruling that legalized abortion, allowing a Mississippi law passed that bans abortions after 15 weeks to take effect. “The Constitution does not confer a right to abortion; Roe and Casey are overruled; and the authority to regulate abortion is returned to the people and their elected representatives,” Justice Samuel Alito wrote for the 6-3 majority. The ruling in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization means each state will now be able to determine its own regulations on abortion, including whether and when to prohibit abortion.
COVID-19 Vaccination Reactivates Highly
Contagious Virus: Studies

Doctors and scientists are seeing an increase in the reactivation of the chickenpox virus, known as varicella-zoster virus (VZV), following the COVID-19 injections. The chickenpox virus is one of the eight herpes viruses known to infect humans. After a person contracts and recovers from chickenpox, the virus never leaves the body but lies dormant in the nervous system for life. The chickenpox virus will show up as shingles, or herpes zoster (HZ) when it gets reactivated. Federal health authorities claim that there’s no correlation between COVID-19 injections and shingles, but studies show that there is a higher incidence of shingles in people who’ve received the vaccine.Israel was one of the earlier countries

Sneaky Joe's new plan to steal the midterms replies

He stole it once, and got away with it... Why wouldn't he do it again? Which is the unfortunate conclusion from Mollie Hemingway in a new report in The Federalist. Joe Biden has a new plan to rig and steal the midterms. He's not only doing it now, he's been working on it for a while. Hemingway notes that it probably isn't legal, given that the executive branch has no right to get involved with elections. As a result, Biden and his Democrats are really determined to keep news of its basic details from the public: President Biden really does not want the public to know about his federal takeover of election administration.

Amazon is devising a way for users to speak to their family members through its Alexa voice assistant, even after they’ve died. (Snip) In a demonstration video, a child said, “Alexa, can Grandma finish reading me the Wizard of Oz?” Alexa confirmed the request with the default, robotic voice, then immediately switched to a softer, more humanlike tone, seemingly mimicking the child’s family member.

Mayor Eric Adams led New York’s top elected officials in excoriating the US Supreme Court for overturning a century-old state gun law — warning at a Thursday press conference that “this decision has made every single one of us less safe from gun violence.” “There is no place in the nation this decision affects as much as New York City,” Adams said in response to the 6-3 ruling, which he added was “just not rooted in reality.” “The opinion claims to be based on the nation’s historical past, but does not account for the reality of today. It ignores the present and it endangers our future,” he continued.
Drag Queens and the Incoherence of Moral Relativism replies
Posted by Imright 6/24/2022 7:53:57 AM Post Reply
It is a sign of our times that movements have emerged to teach pedophilia in schools and to subject children to drag queen performances. Perversions like this are borne of an insidious attitude known as moral relativism. As the term suggests, moral relativism is the belief that morality is subjective rather than objective. That is, what is right and wrong varies from person to person instead of emerging from a fixed universal standard, meaning that there are no ultimate moral truths. Before examining why such a view is incoherent, it is worth considering why ordinary people have been seduced into believing it.

I adore road trips, especially when I am not the one driving. Thankfully, hubby enjoys being in the driver’s seat, so I get that option more often than not. Anyone who has been on the open road, and especially has gotten off the beaten path, understands the sense of adventure and freedom resident in even the smallest of trips. The 400 miles north from Orange County to San Luis Obispo is enough space, road, and adventure to make me feel as though I have traveled. Road Tripping is a distinctly unique American activity. In Europe they take trains. In America, we drive, and it is unrivaled.

Startling surveillance video purports to show a Department of Veterans Affairs patient advocate allegedly grabbing an elderly veteran by the neck, throwing him to the floor, and stomping him twice. “He was Mike Tyson-ing me there,” the victim claimed. Based on the 30-second clip, and there may be additional, as-yet-undisclosed facts and recordings to follow, it appears that the victim may have made first contact with the VA worker with his left hand. Whether that justified the alleged beatdown that followed is another matter entirely.

For congressional Republicans, the election can’t come soon enough. In the modern era, it’s hard to think of a time when the party out of power had more things going its way. Harry Enten, CNN’s political data analyst, recently noted that going by the generic ballot, things haven’t looked this good for Republicans to pick up House seats in the midterms since 1938. Since 1980, the party of the president in power has lost an average of 22 seats in the midterms. Republicans need only nine to win the majority. Of course, Republicans think this means they’re doing something right.

The 65-33 vote came after a month of negotiations that eventually found a compromise on one of the country's most contentious political issues. Yet the nation's divisions were on clear display on a day when the Supreme Court expanded gun rights by ruling Americans have a constitutional right to carry handguns in public for self-defense. The legislation provides about $15 billion in funding to help states implement red-flag laws to keep guns from high-risk owners and expand background checks.
