The U.S. Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade last Friday afternoon, giving back to the individual states, the origins of our constitutional republic, the power and control to allow, limit, or ban the practice of abortion as they see fit.
This removes the federal ruling class’s collective hegemony and restores such behavioral controls closer to the people through the states for regulation.
And, predictably, here comes one of Alaska’s most obtuse panderers in recent times, second only to Ethan Berkowitz: Sen. Lisa Murkowski.
After reading her statement on the Supreme Court ruling, I couldn’t help but ask, “Are we in Bizzarro world?”
Did Murkowski take the time to read Roe v Wade? She’s had almost 50 years.
Did Murkowski take the time to read Dobbs v. Jackson? It’s a true eye opener for anyone wanting to leave Bizzarro world and return to a constitutional republic.
Has she recently studied the development of a human being? An embryo? A fetus?
Does she know life begins at conception? Hey, don’t go after me … follow the science, Senator.
Does she know that every bit of who she is today was contained in her father’s sperm and her mother’s egg joining together at conception, just like the millions and millions of unborn human beings she caused to be killed because of this “right to choose”?
Or has the blood money of the Left soaked through her greed-filled pores, metastasized its way into her blood stream, and corrupted her frontal lobes?
Sen. Lisa Murkowski this week stated the “Supreme Court went against 50 years of precedent in choosing to overturn Roe v. Wade. The rights under Roe that many women have relied on for decades—most notably a woman’s right to choose—are now gone or threatened in many states.”
The drama of fear mongering, knee jerk reactions and political expediency is great in Murkowski. Will Alaska fall for it in the November election?
Why not start a riot? Oh, I’m sorry riots already have started fostered by sensationalists like Murkowski pleading to the unlawful Left to violently pervert the lawfulness of the U.S. Constitution and the separation of powers and violate public safety.
Her statement went further, “Given the Supreme Court’s ruling overturning Roe v. Wade, Sen. Murkowski’s leadership on this issue is now more important than ever.” It continued, “Alaska voters should all see the clear and undeniable fact that Lisa Murkowski is working hard to protect women’s health care.”
This statement is from a woman who took the Alaska bar exam five times before passing. A statist, posing as a professional politician, insists, during her campaign financed by outside special interests and dark money, that she is the leadership Alaska needs.
What leadership? For the past 20 years, Lisa Murkowski pushes against doors clearly marked “PULL” for Alaska. Her sole purpose in Washington, D.C. is to be controlled by her handlers and continue the Alaskan colony and not the State of Alaska. I know the political elite want this, but Alaskans look around…our state has failed.
What about the unborn? Is she really posturing political expediency to gain votes from people who think this is about “women’s health care” and silently advocating the murder of the defenseless innocent unborn human beings in the name of the abrogation of states’ rights?
I could go out on the limb: I believe that during her Willamette College of Law attendance, she somehow missed the entire three years of constitutional law. Roe was a direct attack on Article I, Section 8, of the U.S. Constitution and the 9th and 10th amendments in the Bill of Rights, not to mention other constitutional parts. Roe v Wade was terrible legislation by judicial activism masked as even worse case law.
We should applaud her for her persistence and give her a participation medal, but not membership in the most exclusive club in the world, the United State Senate.
Roe v. Wade and Planned Parenthood of Southeastern Pa. v. Casey were about the issue of abortion to some, but many saw these two cases as another oppressive step to cultivate a nonexistent constitutional right to minimize states’ sovereignty.
Roe and Casey were never about a woman’s right to choose. It has always been about the Left finding a reason to limit states’ sovereignty, which has been its modus operandi for over a century and a half.
“’Preserving the right to choose will take bipartisan action and leadership. Senator Murkowski has a proven track record of effectiveness and the seniority to work with her colleagues to reverse today’s dangerous precedent,” said Murkowsi’s campaign spokesperson Shea Siegert.
Alaska’s senior Republican senator, rebuked and censured by her own Alaska Republican Party, enlists the Left to assist her to stay in office through this political backlash of SCOTUS and keep Shea employed.
Again, she can coat it with honey, sugar, Splenda, and indignation, but there is no such constitutional right.
“Alaskan courts have interpreted abortion rights as protected under our State Constitution, but with this decision, women in other parts of the country will face a different reality that limits their health decisions, even in extreme circumstances,” Murkowski said.
Yes, Alaska has stood in the forefront a few years before Roe and kills the unborn human being in the name of privacy. Again, for those who insist “my body, my choice”, what about the defenseless innocent unborn human being’s right to privacy?
“In the wake of this ruling, it is up to Congress to respond. I introduced legislation in February to protect women’s reproductive rights as provided in Roe, and I am continuing to work with a broader group to restore women’s freedom to control their own health decisions wherever they live. Legislation to accomplish that must be a priority,” she said.
Rally the pitchforks and torches of the righteously indignant useful idiots who for whatever reason have failed to study either biology or the U.S, Constitution.
Read Dobbs v. Jackson. All 50 states prior to Roe had laws regarding abortion. Roe and Casey did very little in preserving “the right to choose.” Frankly all they did was take the states out of discussing and regulating the issue.
I would like to take a moment to condemn Lisa Murkowski, who expounds her ignorance to compel falsehoods and breeds division in Alaska and America.
This is not the senator for Alaska.
