Planting a Flag: GOP Proposes 15-Week Abortion Law
September 27, 2022

As furious as Democrats are about the end of Roe v. Wade, they certainly can't complain about the timing. Months away from a midterm bloodbath, the Supreme Court's decision was - in many ways - a political gift. While the issue of abortion may not have the power to upend the November elections, it's certainly given the president's party something to talk about other than his monumental failures. And talk they have - about everything but their radical position of abortion until birth.

The whole concept behind Salesforce is to help companies connect with customers. So it's more than a little ironic that the CEO behind the effort is intent on driving a political wedge between his own business and half of America. For Marc Benioff, who's spent years turning Salesforce into a woke social force, it's no surprise that he'd threaten to yank his company from pro-life states. The real surprise - at least for Benioff - may be how little those conservative states care.

The right to choose belongs to us all, from hijabs to reproductive care." In other words, AOC sees the recent wave of American pro-life legislation protecting unborn lives across the nation after the overturn of Roe v.

If you asked the talking heads, they'd say Americans are flocking to the Republican Party because of Joe Biden. It's a reasonable explanation, considering the dumpster fire he's made of our economy, energy, and inflation. But there's another reason that voters are turning to the GOP - and it has nothing to do with the price of gas in Wichita. It's because under Donald Trump they rediscovered something important: their moral courage. And this week's marriage debate, however contrived it is, is putting everything they've learned to the test.

The law was blocked before it could be enacted by a federal judge who found it unconstitutional based on the federal Roe v. Wade precedent. Since the Supreme Court ruled that abortion is not protected in the Constitution, Georgia's abortion law is up for review.
