As mentioned, if you're anti-abortion/pro-life because you truly want to preserve the sanctity of life, or you fear more state government-institution racial abuse in the form of forced mass abortions, i.e. those that legitimately happened to Native Americans from 1973 to 1976 - then I get you.
HOWEVER - if you're anti-abortion because you have a need to control what women do and how they behave, if a man - or what other women do/how they behave, if a woman - and that they should be punished for their "sin," without mercy or consideration for their individual circumstances - then I don't get you at all - and perhaps consider worrying more about your own sin and soul?
Unfortunately, Justice Alito put himself in the latter box, when he quoted a 17th century English Jurist (Judge) named Sir Matthew Hale on abortion law - THIS LINK takes you directly to the PDF of the Alito's full draft - note Page 18 in particular.
First of all - this is America in 2022 - not 17th century England.
In fact, and secondly, Sir Matthew Hale executed two women for witchcraft - PLUS - wrote a thesis on there being no such thing as marital rape as women were the property of their husbands.
Yeah, no - I don't think so. I think we can do better.
Regardless, SNL dug back even further -with guest host Benedict Cumberbatch - to apparently 1235 England, upon which Sir Matthew Hale apparently based HIS decisions? LOL!!!
