I’m not going to be putting sources because this is mostly opinion/observation, also massive news regarding Roe V Wade in the states.
Has anyone else noticed how the Republican Party in the USA just guaranteed all future wins for the Democratic party over the last half decade?
Between The Former President orchestrating a failed coup that is now getting massive attention world-wide, and the SCOUS removing the main government from decisions regarding abortion, they have cemented a larger voice for those who don’t agree. As bad as all of their decisions have been over the last little bit, and how catastrophic they have been for democracy, it is becoming more and more apparent just how self-sabotaging those political moves have been.
To those who don’t get how it works (incredibly simplified), Roe V Wade meant that individual states have no say on abortion. This meant that it was up to the federal level to regulate how things like that worked. This was great on the macro level, but what was not thought about by the “Justices” is how unliked their ruling was in the collective mind. Now, someone running for governor just has to promise to keep/remake abortion legal in their state. There is enough support for that to make the elections extremely one-sided.
To be extremely clear: I am not a fan of democracy done that way. However, the right keeps making it easier for the “left” from the standpoint that their rulings are so incredibly unliked.
To be clear, I am NOT supporting this ruling. I wish I could do more to help those who need support, and I have made it my mission to amplify voices and movements to better the world. The Supreme Court has demonstrated just how relevant they are in today’s world, and keep making proclamations that cement that idea.
To get ahead of the question of why a Canadian cares: because I am human. Because what happens politically seems to try to cross the border. Because I want things to be better for others. Because I have some sort of compassion, in opposition to the consensus.
