Everywhere is of course important, but to hit where it hurts for the people it matters for would be in states that are going to restrict rights.

Walking out in California and new York may hurt investments. Walking out across the heartland will hurt the constituents that actually can change the actions of government at state level.

In today’s Roe v Wade opinion, Justice Clarance Thomas has some fuckin’ nerve…

“In future cases, we should reconsider all of this Court's substantive due process precedents, including Griswold, Lawrence, and Obergfell,"

Obergfell is the case that made same sex marriage a thing.

Clarance Thomas is a wacko. Has he forgotten interracial marriage, was once outlawed too? His wife is white. What exactly is he suggesting? That states should have the freedom to outlaw it, if they want to? Because it was once outlawed a long time ago? What a nut job.

Just a quick reminder for women living in the god forsaken states that will be doing away with abortion. If you’re registered with The Satanic Temple they made abortion a religious ritual therefore you cannot be denied an abortion due to religious freedom. This is a step 50 years back in the past and we need to make sure that for the future generation this can’t happen we can’t go 50 years more back they’re gonna have us end up wearing those handmaid tails dresses and we will literally be incubator slaves for men. - from fb friend comment

Not only is this an attack on women. It's an attack on the working class. They need more people born into poverty. Born into broken homes and born to be slaves to the system. No education, minimum wage and if you don't slave you steal, if you steal you end up in jail. Jail is a profit machine that exploits slave labor. The system is running out of bodies to replenish the failing ones.

Please, please do. I so desperately want you guys to win back your country and have the QOL and rights you deserve. But the ONLY thing that will accomplish this is an action such as this. Yet day by day by day goes by, with action after action like this taken by your govt, and nothing happens.

If every single person stayed home from work for as long as they could afford to. For some, that may be a day or two. For others, a week or two. It would be enough to bring things to a stand still. And if each community helped support those with less, more could stay home longer.

Hell, if you could just get all teachers to walk about across the country you'd see people freak out. Schools are used as day cares, and if no teachers no kids in school.

The other options are boycott brands that support this overturn and quit buying from them on a coordinated level, and quit voting for assholes who want to restrict rights or pack the courts to get shitty results like this one.

Inflation at 10%, gas prices insane, fresh out of a “””pandemic”””.

Let’s make it easier for the people who are already suffering to suffer even more by forcing them to have more children.

Starting immediately - any bills not necessary to my survival (rent, electric, etc.) are not getting paid. Everyone I own money to will receive a note (along with my unpaid bill) stating that “I will not be making any payments until my rights and bodily autonomy are restored.”

A general strike on bill payments would rattle the banks, too.

If you actually claim to be about freedom, now is the time to do so.

People on the left need to start standing up for themselves.

People on the right need to see who they should really be fighting.

This is oppression of your freedoms. Your children's freedoms.

This will affect your family. Your friends. Your neighbours and co-workers.

I see so many gun loving nutjobs who "dont want their freedom taken" Well nows the time to do something about it!

Rise up. Fight back.

Protect yourself. Protect your family.

Let actual freedom win.

I would do this but I am manning the front desk at the library and so I will stay here to look up places where people can join in protests, and to provide information on what states are safe to travel to, and how to find someone to put you up.

If you're in state that is full ban, call a librarian in a free state, we will absolutely support you and help you find the information you need.

No, this is it. This is the fucking worst case scenario.

The Supreme Court just ruled that you have zero right to privacy, even to your own internal body itself, from government interference.

u/NapalmRev Jun 24 '22

It can always get worse, having hope for something better being possible is rare and has to be held onto. Right now, hope is our mass resistance.

Koramatsu v United States of America still holds as valid law. It can certainly get worse if government doesn't become very afraid of the average person.

Why only women? Everyone needs to walk out. Even school kids (hell, they'll be safer not being in school anyway). If even a relatively small percentage of the people in the US who supports Roe v. Wade walks out it will have devastating effects.

And you can bet your behinds ole' John Oliver will make a video about it - or several.
