Abortion

Once Roe's Overturned, Fetus Cultists Can't Wait To Start Executions, Oh Boy!

Maybe some light civil war, too, as needed.

You've probably already heard that if the Supreme Court overturns Roe v. Wade next month as expected, some 26 states are set to ban most abortions almost immediately, because they either have old pre-Roe bans still on the books, or because they've passed "trigger" bans that will become effective the moment the Court rules, if not when CNN misreports the news.

DO NOT F*CKING TELL US TO CALM DOWN

And while you might be worried about what the new legal hellscape will mean for reproductive health, women's rights, and other constitutional protections, you may want to keep in mind that people who have been looking forward to the end of Roe also have a lot of concerns about what comes next. Like, for starters, how soon can they start executing people for performing or getting abortions?

See, we're not so dissimilar, are we?

TUCKER NOT MAD AT VACCINATED NEW YORK GOVERNOR, TUCKER LAUGHING AT HER!

Fine, Tucker, See You Lext Tuesday.

Fox News host Tucker Carlson was simply delirious with joy at learning that New York Democratic Gov. Kathy Hochul was diagnosed with COVID-19 on Sunday, because it proves no one needs to be vaccinated or something. Hochul wrote on Twitter, "Thankfully, I’m vaccinated and boosted, and I’m asymptomatic. I’ll be isolating and working remotely this week."

Tucker found it simply hilarious that, after saying she was vaxxed and boosted, Hochul called on all New Yorkers to get vaccinated and boosted, because what the hell good would that do? Like, apart from the vaccines' proven effectiveness at preventing serious illness and death.

Also too, Carlson left out the part about her being asymptomatic, which is kind of a big deal, and the point of why the vaccines are extremely effective even against a quickly changing virus.

Here's the video of Carlson being extremely weird about all of this, via Media Matters:

Nice Time! Biden Announces Free Broadband For Working Families

Wingnuts fret it's Obamaphones all over again.

President Biden yesterday announced that 20 internet companies will start providing low-cost broadband internet service to low-income Americans, as part of a deal growing out of last year's Bipartisan Infrastructure Law. The infrastructure bill already offered $30-a-month subsidies to help low-income folks pay for internet (the subsidy increases to $75 in tribal areas). Those subsidies are available to millions of people. Now, the 20 internet providers will set up a new tier of broadband plans that cost just $30 per month, so with the subsidy, the plans will will be free for as many as 48 million families.

At a White House Rose Garden event yesterday, Biden said, "High speed internet is not a luxury any longer. It’s a necessity." The AP adds,

Biden noted that families of four earning about $55,000 annually — or those including someone eligible for Medicaid — will get a $30 monthly credit, meaning about 40 percent of Americans will qualify.

The subsidies, through the Affordable Connectivity Program, were a top goal for Biden and other supporters of the infrastructure bill, particularly as the pandemic highlighted the "digital divide" that means low-income homes don't have reliable internet access. That was dramatically illustrated by a viral August 2020 photo showing two little girls sitting on a curb outside a Taco Bell so they could use the restaurant's wifi to do homework on school-issued laptops.

Sunday Shows On Mother's Day Got Kind Of Weird, Considering

As you might imagine.

It's been one hell of a week. After Samuel Alito's medieval opinion to overturn Roe v. Wade leaked, the country has been dealing with it in various ways. But if the Sunday shows are any indication, we have a lot more worries (and lies) ahead than we thought.

Tate Reeves on CNN's 'State Of The Union' and NBC's 'Meet The Press'

Jake Tapper had on Mississippi GOP Governor Tate Reeves, whose state brought the case that gave Alito and his fellow partisan hacks the chance to outlaw abortion.

Tapper asked Reeves about Mississippi's 2007 trigger law, which would automatically ban abortions in Mississippi if Roe is overturned, except in the case of rape or risk to life of the mother, but not incest. Reeves's answer was not very reassuring:

REEVES: Well, that's going to be the law because, in 2007, the Mississippi legislature passed it [...]

TAPPER: Why is it acceptable to force girls who are victims of incest to carry those child -- children to term?

REEVES: Well, as you know, Jake, over 92 percent of all abortions in America are elective procedures. When you look at the number of those that actually -- involve incest, it's less than one percent. And if we need to have that conversation in the future about potential...

TAPPER: This is your law.

REEVES: ... exceptions in the trigger law, we can certainly do that. But the reality is that, again, that affects less than one percent of all abortions in America on an annual basis.

TAPPER: OK, but that is going to be the law of Mississippi.

But the GOP will not stop just at banning abortion when it comes to restricting reproductive rights and regulating women's bodies. Reeves himself hinted at this over on "Meet The Press" when Chuck Todd, of all people, asked a good follow-up question.
