As Expected, the Abortion Death Cult Demonstrates in the Seattle Area

 

Here are some stories from local media:

Protests to Hit Seattle in response to Roe v Wade overturning. (note the operative word HIT)

Rise Up 4 Abortion Rights is hosting a protest today at 5 p.m. as well, located at Westlake Park on 401 Pine St. A second protest will be held at the same time and place on Saturday as well. Rise Up 4 Abortion Rights is conducting protests across the nation in 16 cities.

Shout Your Abortion‘s (SYA) protest will be held at Yessler (sic) Terrace Park on 903 Yessler (sic) Way today at 5 p.m.

“SYA is normalizing abortion and elevating safe paths to access, regardless of legality,” the company said in a press release. “SYA makes resources, campaigns, and media intended to arm existing activists, create new ones, and foster collective participation in abortion access all over the country.

King County Executive pledges $1 Million to support abortion access in Pacific Northwest.

Seattle City Council takes up bill to make Seattle an “abortion sanctuary city”.

Inslee vows to guard abortion rights, expand access in Washington, in light of Supreme Court ruling.

Protesters take to the streets in Seattle and elsewhere.

While most people were peaceful, there were some isolated instances of violence and property damage. Seattle police said they arrested two people in two separate assaults. Additionally, two businesses were damaged along 2nd Ave. but no one was arrested in those cases.

My guess is that the two who were arrested will be released without charge.

Yes, abortion is the Holy Sacrament of the Death Cult of the Left.  The state of Washington already mandates that all medical insurance sold in the state must cover abortion.

    Abortion is legal in the People’s Republic of Washington, so what exactly are they “protesting?”

    “What do we want?”

    “Abortion Rights!”

    “When do we already have them?”

    “Now!”

    My oldest asked me if I was worried about riots. I said no, that we don’t live in blue cities. Their cities, their rioters, their problem.

    My youngest then reminded me she is in Portland tonight, but at least near the airport.

    Hardest thing for me today was herding three grandchildren to the pool and a baseball game. I will tuck them and do a last minute check soon. I return them in the AM, on my way to the meetup.

    Albuquerque is going to protest even though New Mexico is a killing state. I even saw a report that the Mississippi clinic from the case is moving to Albuquerque.

    City Council/Socialist member Kshama Sawant also wants to have the city pay for all abortions, from the “Amazon Tax” (which was recently upheld in court), or other funds.  They don’t do anything halfway in Seattle.

    The clinic is moving to Las Cruces. The headline said New Mexico so I assumed Albuquerque. I read the article and it’s not.

    If the ex-Mississippi clinic wants to be available to people in Mississippi, moving to Las Cruces makes no sense.

    I suppose killing babies is more important to them than staying in Mississippi and finding reputable work.

    Well, my assumption was that they wanted to move across the Mississippi border to be readily available to border-crossing Mississippi “customers.”  But Las Cruces is hardly across-the-border from Mississippi.

    The problem is that Texas is in the way. From Natchez, MS (on the western edge of the state) to Las Cruces, NM is a road trip of 1057 miles, most of which is in Texas.

    Are Louisiana, Arkansas, Alabama, and Tennessee all going to ban abortion too?

    MSNBC is losing its mind. 

    Protesters have swarmed the Arizona Legislature; wisely security has kept the doors locked.  Some protesters have thrown their bodies against the windows, thank goodness they have held.  Security has thrown some “flash-bang” at the protesters. 

    If the protesters invade the State Legislature, I would support their prosecutions, just as I have with the January 6th mob.

    It was last year and the bill removed an existing law from 1969 but didn’t actively protect abortion. If Roe was overturned, the old law would go back into effect and the current leadership couldn’t stand that. I saw that the governor was at the rally last night. I doubt she explained the situation to the crowd.

    I have a feeling that the coming riots over restricting abortion are going to drown-out any curiosity or coverage of the January 6th riot investigation.  It may also cause a backlash against abortions rights causes, erasing any public sympathy or motivation of their base that they may have gained from the Supreme Court decision.  The Left always blunders into destroying itself eventually.

    These protests don’t just occur without organizations, so what is the purpose??  it’s occurring in states that have abortion and will make even more money off it, with Biden in the White House they ‘ll even get Federal funds.

    That was February 2021 when the governor signed the legislation repealing the 1969 abortion restrictions.

    Wonder where this graph came from.   My understanding is that the MS case that went to SCOTUS attempted to limit abortion to the first trimester (you know, like those enlightened Europeans).   Since the MS law was upheld, wouldn’t MS fall into the “restricted” category?   I believe TX has a similar law.

    I noted their categorizations  of “banned” also. The Mississippi law at issue in the Dobbs case prohibits abortion after 15 weeks, which is more than 1/3 of the way into a typical pregnancy. Hardly what I’d call a “ban.” The Texas restrictions kick in much earlier, at a detectable heartbeat. Apparently the designers of the map had a political agenda to fulfill that was more important than conveying accurate information. But, some of the “banned” category may be actual bans that pre-dated the Roe decision, and may now come back to life. 

    Also the light red “restricted” category could also be colored light blue as “permitted but with restrictions.”
