Abortion is the wine and wafer of the feminist movement. (A despised cultural figure of the 1990s.)I thought that was extreme and unfair at the time. I have come to believe they were right. If you remember who that was, you may mention it.
A) What part of "If Roe is overturned it goes back to the states" is opaque?
B) What part of "Not everyone agrees with your assessment that the right to abort is just, like, obvious, which is why we have legislatures, attempts at persuasion, and try to have significant allowances for differences of opinion" is opaque?
C) Given A), and B), I submit that the "passion" as Jen Psaki called it (a sentiment she did not allow to those who assembled peacefully to protest the 2020 election) is about feelings of cultural victory rather than attention to practical considerations?
One of the foundational topics of this blog has been issues that people feel are intellectual, but upon applying pressure turn out to be only social and emotional. I may not have been successful at enforcing that upon myself and my friends here, but I have at least recognised the possibility and tried. I may be only deceiving myself in one of those reverse-gainer Screwtapian ways, yet I can claim that even that is an advantage over those I oppose, who seem oblivious to the possibility that such considerations apply to them as well as every other human being in history.
But because we are in the territory of my own passions at this point, it is best that I not accuse further.
