Should the American women revolt, if the male-dominated GOP Supreme Court indeed rules against their bodily integrity and free reproductive choice ?

Yes.

In my opinion, the women of America should revolt and show the White men of America their place, which is the dustbin of history.

No 4 males should be able to decide the fate of 170 million American women and what or what not they dan do with their bodies !

If necessary, the women must occupy the Supreme Court and chase these unrepresentative White males out.

By the numbers, nearly 1/2 of American women are prolife. https://news.gallup.com/poll/244709/pro-choice-pro-life-2018-demographic-tables.aspx

Also, the SCOTUS would not be deciding the fate of American women. We would simply be doing what the rest of the civilized world does - leave it to the democratic process. You know, like the UK, France, Germany, etc. do - they make laws about abortion and abortions are limited in just about every western industrialized country.

The US, really, is just about the only country in the world which enshrined abortion as a fundamental liberty within the right to privacy - the Supreme Court, in 1973, said "screw the democratic process - the people don't get to decide this issue, we, the unelected 9, we get to decide for every American..."

Occupy the Supreme Court? So, an insurrection? Are you inciting an insurrection?

Left and center women will undoubtedly consider this in November. However, Right women will also be thinking of this. The womens vote is not a bloc, although I suspect the pro-choice vote is larger. GOP shooting themselves in the foot on this one.

The US Supreme Court is currently occupied by Taliban-style domestic terrorists if they pass this ruling.

You cannot have a democratic institution be run by white male far-right terrorists.

Therefore the women of America must get rid of these unrepresentative white male judges and make sure the SC is made up of 5 women.

Are you under the impression that all American women are against this decision? You ever look at the polling data on abortion? It's split basically identical to that of men. Also, if you're talking about a violent overthrow, it's not really going to work out when men are stronger and are the ones with all the guns. It's only the presence of a stable society that keeps equality between the genders.

Further, this would only put the matter into the hands of the states, so there'd still be abortion going on all over the place.

Wrong 62% of women support a right to an abortion and the SC said they have that CHOICE.. It is only the most religious that oppose it. As far as the democratic process goes which other rights would you have legislators remove? The purpose of the SC is to prevent the majority from taking away the rights of minorities. Not to mention that religion has no place in our laws. We were formed from people that left their countries because of religious oppression....remember? Now it is coming here and the State is making religious dogma into laws that apply to all of us.

The religious support abortion rights—except for White evangelicals: Pew found Americans with religious affiliations are far more likely to oppose abortion than the nonreligious (82% of whom believe abortion should be legal), but with the exception of white evangelical Protestants (77% of whom believe abortion should be illegal), a higher share of every religious group polled—white non-evangelicals, Black Protestants and Catholics—favor abortion rights.
Gender split—not as big as you might think: Women are slightly more likely to support abortion than men, with Pew finding 62% of women want abortion to be legal versus 56% of men.

There is very little difference in opinions on abortion between men and women.

You must not realize that this ruling DOES NOT make abortion illegal. And you are ranting...er...posting from Austria. What do you care?

This country is so crazy backwards.
This nonsense is all enabled by states rights, a disaster of a concept from the dolts that put this country together.

Wrong, it will create anti-reproductive rights laws in red states and women would have to travel hundreds of miles to the next reproductive rights clinic in a blue state.

Most women cannot afford such travel.

Maybe it turned out to be a blessing that the left wants to eliminate fossil fuels and thus make transportation expensive

The 'occupy' part is just a tad extreme. I agree with everything else you've said. Protests help, but it needs to be done at the ballot box. This will hopefully double energize democratic voters this November.

I also have a side thought on this whole (leak) at the SC. Is it possible this is the courts way of floating this decision for a few months to try and get a real read on the electorate? It is only a draft, subject to any kind of changes or even a reversal. Polls indicate that 70% of Americans are in favor of Roe. The SC already looks as partisan as they ever have.

IMHO and it's only an opinion, all this is about is a major power grab. Conservative men just want to be able to tell women what to do. And they also know this will affect the poorer minorities more than anyone else. No different than making it as hard to vote as possible for minority communities.

One of us, it seems, cannot read a graph.

1/2 is 50
The number is closer to 40% than it is 50%

1651604083077.png


Also, Gallup has some of the more conservative numbers on this issue: here is Pew: https://www.pewresearch.org/fact-ta...bortion-should-be-legal-in-all-or-most-cases/

I wish these people would have the integrity to call their movement what it is, “pro-life” would indicate they care about life — healthcare, education, safety & securit — the movement is pro-forced birth. The only group showing above 50% are the christian nationalists.

I've been saying this for a while. It's part of a bigger power grab agenda by conservatives. Once that baby is born, they run in the other direction. They are full of shit.

No. Why ?

"Revolt" is probably a too harsh statement, but the women of America cannot stay home and sit on their hands while watching a group of 4 white males destroy their reproductive rights.

It is not about abortion only, it's a complete assault on the women of America itself. It's about what they can do or not, about their free choice. Plain paternalism.

Why are those who are pro abortion afraid of elected legislators making law re: abortion? Why do they prefer unelected, appointed for life judges to make law?

Well, besides it being racist you are also suggesting insurrection. Are you sure you're not joking?

Take a seat. This is what happens when you lean on the Supreme Court to read things into the Constitution that aren’t there in lieu of Constitutional Amendments.

White men are a plague all over the world. Or men in general.

Women must make sure their voice not only gets heard - but they must demand more and more equal representation in politics and elsewhere.

In my opinion, males should even be banned from holding political office etc. where decisions are made, or at least be a clear minority.

Everything that is governed by women is more stable, more prosperous and less violent.

A reminder, Obama/Biden promised to codify Roe. They had a super majority in the Senate of pro abortion senators along with a large majority in the house. They made no effort to keep the promise that would have made the Roe decision moot. If you're wanting to revolt start with your own who want the issue to fester.
