In the hysterical, knee-jerk rage reaction to the SCOTUS draft resolution leak earlier this month which indicated the possible overturning of Roe v. Wade, Democrats quickly seized the moment for political gain, but eventually came up short.
In an effort to “protect” abortion “rights” for women, which Democrats label as “healthcare,” and not murder, Dems, under Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY), attempted to pass an outrageously pro-abortion bill called the Women’s Health Protection Act of 2022 that would have superseded all abortion laws across the country.
As James Pinkerton wrote for Breitbart, after the vote to pass the radically out-of-touch bill failed, even MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough took a shot at the Dem Party.
“The story of the Democratic Congress, thus far, is wildly overshooting the mark, and getting nothing from it,” Scarborough, a one-time Republican lawmaker, said.
What did he mean?
Pinkerton explained what the MSNBC lackey meant by his rare shot at the Democratic Party on live television.
“The bill was dubbed the Women’s Health Protection Act of 2022, and that sounds a lot like motherhood and apple pie—except, of course, that it was about the opposite of motherhood. It was about abortion,” Pinkerton wrote.
He added: “Indeed, the bill was a radical expansion of abortion rights, superseding all state restrictions on abortion, of any kind. As such, it didn’t seek merely to codify Roe v. Wade, as Schumer claimed, but instead sought to radically expand it.
“If you’re a Democrat and you’ve lost Joe Scarborough, you’ve got a problem.”
Thank God that moderate Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) helped stopped this monstrosity of a bill from passing, joining all 50 Senate Republicans in a “no” vote.
“Make no mistake, it is not Roe v. Wade codification. It is an expansion, it wipes 500 state laws off the books, it expands abortion . . . We should not be dividing this country further than we’re already divided, and it’s really the politics of Congress that’s dividing the country,” Manchin said of the bill.
Manchin has also saved America from the disaster that would have been the Build Back Better Act, among other progressive bills that would have taken American even further off the tracks than it already is.
Make no mistake, abortion is clearly the hill on which Dems are ready to die, and if SCOTUS formally overturns Roe, which could happen soon, they’ll play every dirty trick they have to make sure it isn’t so.
