It's no wonder that pretty much every major news outlet is running headlines that most Americans don't want Roe overturned.
    This X 100.

    Although I will say that both sides are overreacting in this manner. Conservatives are doing a victory lap, failing to realize that first trimester abortion will be either legal or a bus ride away for pretty much all of the population.

    What's more telling is that, assuming it is, what does the public think about how abortion should be regulated. When you start asking specifics, it isn't nearly as popular as the left would have you believe.

    From June 2021:

    The new poll from The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research finds 61% of Americans say abortion should be legal in most or all circumstances in the first trimester of a pregnancy. However, 65% said abortion should usually be illegal in the second trimester, and 80% said that about the third trimester.

    Looking forward to the left's arguments on why late term abortions should be legal in all 50 states.

    True, but you used MATH. You should be ashamed of yourself!

    It's good that they are going to derail him. Once these fuckers get into office it is hard to get them out. Can you imagine 50 years of this jackass?

    Arctic comes from the Greek, Arktos, for bear.

    Antarctic means “no bears” or “opposite of the bear.” One may assume that the names have to do with the polar bears in the Arctic and the absence of polar bears in Antarctica, but its origin is really about the Ursa Major and Ursa Minor (big bear and little bear) constellations visible in the north that point the North Star.

    Now you know. Thank me later.

    There’s no question a significant number of Ds want to do all those things.

    BUT, they continue to talk about it. They wouldn't be talking about it unless its an item that's on the table.

    And I'm pleased to see you finally acknowledge what they are doing to kids.
