After the leaked draft opinion from the Supreme Court overturning Roe v. Wade , the prospect of Roe being overturned has put the abortion industry and its defenders in hysterics; violence against those in the pro-life movement has skyrocketed, and Democrats have been begging President Biden to do something to protect abortion.
Last week, a group of Democrats published a letter to Biden demanding that he issue an executive order to ensure abortion is legal, according to federal law. Senators Dianne Feinstein, Elizabeth Warren, and Patty Murray wrote the letter, with 22 other Democrats signing on.
“Abortion access is under attack in the United States and already completely eliminated in swaths of the country,” the letter read. “After decades of activism by Republican extremists, the Supreme Court is poised to overturn Roe v. Wade , reversing nearly 50 years of settled law and eviscerating the right to a legal abortion.”
The group also claims, “Anti-abortion violence is on the rise, with assaults and threats of harm against abortion providers more than doubling between 2016 and 2020. Anti-abortion politicians have introduced nearly 550 abortion restrictions in 42 states and passed radical laws completely banning abortion and placing bounties on providers offering medical services. And if Roe v. Wade is gutted by this right-wing Supreme Court, Republican leaders have already signaled their next move: a nationwide ban on abortion in all 50 states.”
The letter did not mention that if Roe is overturned, it would not make abortion illegal; rather, it allows states to make their own individual laws regarding abortion. So while abortion may be illegal in Oklahoma, for example, it would be legal in states like New York, Illinois, and California — states would set their own abortion law once again as they did prior to the Roe decision in 1973.

They’re Trying to Shut Us Down
Over the last several months, I’ve lost count of how many times the powers-that-be have tried to shut us down. They’ve sent hackers at us, forcing us to take extreme measures on web security. They sent attorneys after us, but thankfully we’re not easily intimidated by baseless accusations or threats. They’ve even gone so far as to make physical threats. Those can actually be a bit worrisome but Remington has me covered.
For us to continue to deliver the truth that Americans need to read and hear, we ask you, our amazing audience, for financial assistance. We have a Giving Fuel page to help us pay the bills. It’s brand new so don’t be discouraged by the lack of donations there. It’s a funny reality that the fewer the donations that have been made, the less likely people are willing to donate to it. One would think this is counterintuitive, but sometimes people are skeptical because they think that perhaps there’s a reason others haven’t been donating. In our situation, we’re just getting started so please don’t be shy if you have the means to help.
Thank you and God bless!
