Internet explodes in fury as Alabama governor signs near-total ban on abortion

Published

Americans are outraged, angry, upset, and scared now that Alabama Republican Governor Kay Ivey has just signed into law a bill banning all abortions, except if the mother’s life is threatened by her pregnancy.

Many are expressing anger and feelings of betrayal, noting Republicans called those who opposed President Donald Trump’s Supreme Court picks “hysterical,” while insisting that Roe v. Wade was settled law and could never be challenged or overturned.

The Alabama bill was designed by religious extremists to overturn Roe v. Wade. Now that it has been signed in to law it will be challenged, along with other extreme abortion bans in other states. They will get to the Supreme Court, and many experts believe the Trump-formed Supreme Court will overturn Roe v. Wade.

On social media, many are expressing anger at those who put Donald Trump in the Oval Office, especially Americans who chose to vote third party, for Jill Stein or Gary Johnson as a protest vote. Some are blaming what right now feels like the inevitable overturn of a woman’s right to choose on those who enabled and motivated protest votes, including actress Susan Sarandon.

Trending are terms including #AlabamaAbortionBanKay Ivey#WomensRightsAreHumanRights#YouKnowMe#AbortionRights, and Pat Robertson – all related to the Alabama abortion ban.

Published

House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) has handed out talking points describing the GOP agenda for the upcoming election, since President Donald Trump has been unwilling to chart a course himself.

Some lawmakers "were scared" when Trump was unable to detail his second-term strategy when asked in a recent interview, so several Republicans asked McCarthy to produce an agenda for their own re-election campaigns, reported Axios.
