The overturning of Roe v. Wade has opened the floodgates for state laws that are trapping women in nightmare scenarios. Brittany Watts in Ohio and Kate Cox in Texas are the faces of this horror show. Brittany was hauled into court after a stillbirth, and Kate battled the system for a life-saving abortion only to be denied at every step. These aren't just isolated cases; they're a window into a world where women's health is on the line, and Republican promises about health exceptions are nothing but hot air.
It's time to call it like it is: These laws aren't just failing women; they're pushing us back to the dark ages. The scare tactics about "death panels" from the ACA days? Guess what, they're here, and they're wearing the robes of the MAGA-led Supreme Court.
On the campaign trail, Republicans like Donald Trump will try to appear moderate by talking about the "exceptions" to these dangerous state abortion laws, but the "exceptions" are a mirage. And it's our responsibility to make sure our neighbors know it.
The game plan is clear: We need to take back the House, retain our Senate majority, keep Joe Biden in the Oval Office, scrap the filibuster, and make Roe v. Wade the law of the land. This isn't just politics; it's a fight for our rights, our health, and our lives.
