First and foremost, in 1973 when Roe v. Wade was decided in the Supreme Court, there was a Democratic majority. Though some Republicans voted for Roe v. Wade, there should be a universal understanding that medical knowledge and technology weren’t as advanced in 1973 as it is now.
Fast forward to today, Nancy Pelosi (D-NY) rambles about Republicans getting back to their pro-choice opinions and caring about the environment. A video posted on Twitter by The Hill shows Pelosi saying, “I want the Republican Party to take the party back to where you were when you cared about a woman’s right to choose, you cared about the environment. Here I am, Nancy Pelosi, saying this country needs a strong Republican Party. Not a cult.”
The cult that Pelosi is referring to is the cult of freedom, liberty, women’s rights, children’s rights, and bodily autonomy. And no, bodily autonomy doesn’t mean killing a child because it’s inconvenient. It means that the government, an employer, or a doctor can’t force you to do something with your body that you don’t want to.
One user responded, “What’s cultish is keeping the same people in power for 45-50 years.”
Exactly. Yes, if a politician is doing a good job, then you should re-elect them. But, if that same politician is aging badly and showing signs of cognitive decline, then you have a duty to the rest of the country to make sure they aren’t elected. Otherwise, you’re displaying cult-like behavior. Relying on one person to represent you no matter how bad they are shows that you have an obsessive need to have them in office. That’s not healthy behavior from voters.
Tim Pool had the most accurate and appropriate response. Pool said, “Republicans have been trying to ban abortion my entire life you crank. Wtf is wrong with her?”
Tim Pool covers this issue extensively on his podcast “Timcast IRL” where they discuss the hypocrisy of the left and Roe v. Wade. As Tim Pool says, “Republicans are compromising.”
Republicans don’t want women having abortions at any point during pregnancy. There have to be standards because life has to remain sacred. Pelosi is wrong in her assessment; isn’t she always?
