I Don't Believe

Honestly, I have no idea what to make of reproductive rights with yesterday's SCOTUS ruling and the Senates take down of IVF. 

SCOTUS rejected a challenge - one - to keep mifepristone on the market. I will admit, I was surprised at the unanimous vote. Not just for this - but for any measure on this specific court. 

Isn't it horrible when they do something right and you immediately suspect another shoe is going to drop? I just don't trust this. 

Then senate on the other hand........

Those motherfuckers blocked a bill guaranteeing IVF services across the country. 

“Why should we vote for a bill that fixes a non-existent problem? There’s not a problem. There’s no restrictions on IVF, nor should there be,” Republican Sen. John Cornyn of Texas. 

Yeah - this twat. Clearly he's not reading the news on Alabama. Nor is he to be believed, the way SCOTUS candidates lied about Roe being established law. It IS a problem - it's just hidden under a rock until a potential change in administration. 

Yes, it totally violates HIPAA, but I want the names of every Senate and House members wives, daughters, aunts, mothers, cousins who have gotten IVF - and publish that fucking list. 

I am so.very.tired. of the hypocrisy. 

I can't have kids. I don't even want them - never have. Honestly, I'm not sure if I care that other people have them ever. Still, it's their decision, not the governments. 

I feel the dichotomy in these two rulings is really setting up the GOP for a "yahhhhh, we're all for your reproductive rights", while they have their fingers crossed behind their backs. 

This is all a lie. Somehow.

I fully expect them to allow Trump immunity or delay the trials. The only way to win this is to beat him again no matter what anyone thinks of Biden this and Biden that .

I know someone who has a new baby thanks to IVF, and had to travel to a different state for treatment, because of the policies of an employer.

If they're trying to save face I don't buy it, and I, too, am waiting for that other shoe to drop.

I have a first cousin , An -ob/ gyn with a specialty in IVF , they are very staunch Republicans. I hope this all is a huge wake up and slap in the face.

The un- supreme court is just bidding their time to lul everyone into a false sense of security. They will gradually shred our freedoms by a thousand cuts:(

Since lying is now the norm and acceptable I trust nothing the GOP says or does.
