We never had a problem with it.

Sorry you fell for the RWNJ propaganda.

Sure it's propaganda, let me guess you watched the January 6th hearings but not the new Supreme Court Justice confirmation?

You should join, the first time I have been on it since 2009, it's been a riot.
Nah, not for me. Besides, I've been making fun of "twits" on twitter and their twaddle of twittering for far too long now to be able to save any face should I happen to be somehow persuaded to join them. :) :)

Also the slogan "my body my choice". Had no meaning to the left when the government mandated vaccines that didn't work.
You left out the second part of "my body my choice".

“My right to pass a deadly virus to other Americans”.

This is the first time in its history that the Supreme Court has removed a fundamental right, the right of a woman to make her own decisions regarding her health and well-being.

The Court is imposing its religious view on the American people.

The Court determined that the government is in control of a woman's health when it involves a pregnancy. The woman and her doctor do not decide her fate. The state does.
CNN reports, "Abortion-rights protesters continued to voice their fury and anguish nationwide Saturday following the seismic ruling by the US Supreme Court to eliminate the federal constitutional right to an abortion.

"On Friday, the Court overturned the 1973 ruling known as Roe v. Wade, sparking protests that are expected to extend throughout the weekend.

"Smaller gatherings of people celebrating the ruling are also taking place.

"As states started enacting abortion bans and some clinics stopped offering the procedure, abortion-rights advocates took to the streets in major cities.

"More demonstrations are expected today and Sunday in cities big and small, including in New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Illinois, Texas, New Mexico, California, and many others."

Coming on the heels of the Court's decision to expand gun rights in New York after the shooting massacres in Buffalo and New York, the extreme unpopularity of the Supreme Court's religious decision regarding a woman's right to determine her health and well-being destiny has created chaos across our country, and there is no end in sight.

All that makes Justice Samuel Alito's remarks extraordinarily ironic. He said, "Roe was egregiously wrong from the start. Its reasoning was exceptionally weak [from a religious point of view], and the decision has had damaging consequences. And far from bringing about a national settlement of the abortion issue, Roe and Casey have inflamed debate and deepened division.

Incredible! Obviously, Alito is not very cognizant of the world around him. He has lived in the crystal palace far too long.

It was the Supreme Court's decision that fostered "damaging consequences" and "inflamed debate and deepened division!"

At the same time, a former Republican President and the current leader of the Republican Party is being investigated by a Congressional hearing for the alleged crime of leading a coup attempt to overthrow the elected government.

Fostering damaging consequences, inflaming debate, and deepening division are what far-right conservatives do. The proof is in their actions.

These same far-right conservatives expect to win control of Congress in November. As can be seen, if that happens, our country will be in serious trouble.

Is that passing the deadly virus with or without the shot?
How many got the shot and still got the virus? I did and I passed it to my wife.
This is where you repeat the narrative, but the virus kept you out of the hospital.
I thought the vaccine prevented you from giving or getting the virus. Isn't what Biden and his medical minions said?
200 years of modern medicine and these idiots looked like fools. They got so much wrong, but that is for another thread.

May not really be necessary for a number of reasons:

1. Women don't have to have sex. (Rape is a crime, and the male will be facing criminal charges.)

2. Women don't have to have unsafe sex. They are in control of with whom, when, where, how, and most importantly IF this activity will occur.

3. There is also access to things like "the morning after" pill.

4. Most States still have or have recently passed Abortion laws which simply restrict abortions after a certain stage of fetal development (ex. 12th - 15th week and thereafter).

5. In the few States with a major restrictive ban, there is nothing stopping the woman from simply traveling to a place where an abortion is legal.

6. ALL States have a form of "safe haven" law, wherein an unwanted baby can be surrendered at birth or thereafter.

7. The woman should be able to identify the "father," unless she has a habit of "sleeping around" while not practicing #2 above.

8. We don't "register" women who have sex. How so do you justify registering male sex partners in order to identity and then penalize them?

This all a matter of personal responsibility. Something many people like to pawn off on others whenever they can.

True, even some of those that are fully vaccinated still became sick, and passed the virus on to others.

Significantly also true, the vast majority of those that became sick even after being fully vaccinated, didn’t get as sick or require hospitalization.

Also of significance, fully vaccinated people are less likely to transmit Covid to others.

Personally, I have zero pity for those fools that scream “my body, my choice”, then end up sick or dead because of their stupidity.

The vaccine doesn't prevent the spread of covid.
I didn’t say otherwise.

No vaccine is 100% effective, with no negative reactions.

Attacking the efficacy of the Covid vaccines as an argument against being vaccinated is incredibly disingenuous and plain stupid.

Do you have pity for second trimester babies? Compassionate person that you are.

Second trimester, at this point in pregnancy, the fetus’s body is too large to be broken up by suction and will not pass through the suction tubing. The cervix (the opening to the uterus) must be more dilated (opened) than in a first-trimester abortion. This is usually accomplished by inserting laminaria (a porous material which expands with moisture in order to open and soften the cervix) a day or two before the abortion. The physician then dilates the cervix and dismembers the body and crushes the skull to facilitate removal.

So why add: "My right to pass a deadly virus to other Americans” if the vaccine cannot prevent the spread of covid? Virtue signaling?

Because being fully vaccinated reduces the chance of spreading the deadly virus.

Need to see citation on that.
“Studies of viral dynamics further suggest that while viral loads in breakthrough infections may be as high in vaccinated individuals as they are in unvaccinated individuals, viral loads in those who are vaccinated decline more rapidly, and the virus that they shed is less likely to be culture-positive than virus shed by unvaccinated individuals.7,8 This suggests that people who are fully vaccinated are less likely to become infected and if infected, will be contagious for shorter periods than unvaccinated people. This is supported by transmission studies that confirm that vaccinated people are less likely to transmit SARS-CoV-2 to close contacts compared with unvaccinated people, including the Delta variant.9 In a study of 7771 household contacts of 4921 index cases in the Netherlands, the rate of transmission from fully vaccinated household members was 13% vs 22% from unvaccinated household members”

Vaccinated people are less likely to spread Covid, new research finds
People who are vaccinated against Covid-19are less likely to spread the virus even if they become infected, a new study finds, adding to a growing body of evidence that vaccines can reduce transmission of the delta variant.

British scientists at the University of Oxford examined national records of nearly 150,000 contacts that were traced from roughly 100,000 initial cases. The samples included people who were fully or partially vaccinated with either the Pfizer-BioNTech or the AstraZeneca vaccines, as well as people who were unvaccinated. The researchers then looked at how the vaccines affected the spread of the virus if a person had a breakthrough infection with either the alpha variant or the highly contagious delta variant.

Both vaccines reduced transmission, although they were more effective against the alpha variant compared to the delta variant. When infected with the delta variant, a given contact was 65 percent less likely to test positive if the person from whom the exposure occurred was fully vaccinated with two doses of the Pfizer vaccine. With AstraZeneca, a given contact was 36 percent less likely to test positive if the person from whom the exposure occurred was fully vaccinated.

2 minutes Googling. Many more references affirming the widely known information. Next time, do your own homework.
