Voting after Supreme Court Decisions

It was pretty depressing voting after the Supreme Court decided it only upholds the Constitution when it supports the far right’s interests (the decisions forcing Maine to help pay for students to attend religious schools, saying it was okay to open carry guns in New York, and, of course, over-turning Roe v. Wade).

Normally voting is such a happy day for me. Then, as I walked out after voting I heard Pomp and Circumstance. A high school class was holding their graduation across the street. I watched. I cried. And hoped. A tiny, little bit.

  1. I don’t recognize this country anymore! I refuse to accept the loss of our freedoms over our own bodies. I want to shout out “Mind your own damn business!”. Privacy is very American I thought?! Maybe the young people graduating that day will save us from ourselves.

  2. Sorry for taking forever to respond. I realize that this is a very difficult issue, but bottomline, the fact that the new laws that are passing have either no or few exceptions makes it very clear that this is not about being pro-life.
