The My Body My Choice Boomerang Just Boomeranged
The most predictable dialectic plays out predictably, more jabs for you!
I haven’t posted here in a while, been in a bit of a post-pandemic malaise wherein the realities the covid saga has laid bare, about the nature of my fellow citizens, my government, and the general fragility of the current system, have weighed heavily on my mind and heart. Add to that the daily rigors of keeping a small business afloat throughout the endless two weeks to destroy the economy. And finding out, somewhat unexpectedly, that my wife is pregnant with what will be my fifth and likely last child. The due date is January 6th, which makes me giggle. Many newsletters worth of thoughts to share in coming weeks.
Whether it’s unvaxxed sperm or perhaps babies themselves that will be “the next Bitcoin”TM, human fertility has a different feel about it these days. I know that I will survive this scamdemic and provide for my family. I know that a majority of my fellow citizens, at least during the height of the jab-a-thon and likely still today, were supportive of compulsory vaccination of people like myself and my wife. I am under no illusions that, had we “accepted” the ritual of inoculation, we would currently still be expecting a child. These people are enemies; my fellow citizens who embraced the mandatory jab have blood on their hands. There is no going back; we can no longer trust our fates to majority vote. (Probably never could/should have.) They don’t care if you die, as long as they believe jabbing you marginally improves their survival chances. It’s a big load to swallow, I’m working through it, as are I’m sure many readers.
My Body My Choice is the Best Policy Ever
From my personal moral perspective, abortion is something sad and to be avoided. Morals are not laws. Using government force to make women birth unwanted children is, to me, obviously wrong. Inviting government into the bedroom or your doctor’s office is obviously wrong; if the last 2.5 years of scamdemic hell has taught people anything, it ought to be the the federal government is better kept out of the healthcare business. From the surveys I’ve read, most Americans are comfortable with abortion up to a certain point. Which raises the question, why is Roe being revisited now? At a time when most people, in this supposed democracy, are in favor of some level of available abortion, and while some level of abortion does exist without obvious widespread negative consequences, why now?
I can think of two reasons, the more obvious of which is to negate the idea of “my body my choice” in all its permutations. This includes tricking the right into celebrating the end of “my body my choice;” making them both dupes with regards to vaccination policy, and obvious hypocrites able to be mocked on late night TV.
It didn’t take long for this “not your body not your choice” policy to boomerang back and clip Justice Thomas square on the chin. In this story, which buries the lead in favor of vaccine propaganda, we learn that whether or not aborted babies are used to develop the covid vaccines, the court has let stand a ruling that eliminates religious objections to the vaccine mandate:
I like and respect Justice Thomas, but when that boomerang comes back around I’m sure it smarts.
Conservatives should stick to their free market principles. If you want less abortions, and many of us do, then win on the battlefields of minds. Convince the public abortions are not right for them. Offer alternatives like adoption/placement services. What you do not do is violate your own first principles and use the force of the state to make those you cannot convince comply. That will always boomerang back on you down the road, or next week.
