Michelle Goldberg, New York Times, March 29, 2019: The Abortion Divide Gets Deeper
As Goldberg writes:
"As Roe is weakened, conservative states are becoming more conservative, liberal states more liberal. Mutual antagonism is increasing around abortion, as it is around nearly everything else. If Roe is overturned altogether, it won’t just be a disaster for women’s health care and autonomy. It will further rip America apart."
Well it's not the only issue ripping our country apart, but it is a signature issue of liberals that is under full attack by Republicans. This has been entirely predictable, as the evangelicals and Catholics have chipped away at Roe v Wade.
Here are a couple of quotes from the past by a famous Republican conservative:
“Mark my word, if and when these preachers get control of the [Republican] party, and they're sure trying to do so, it's going to be a terrible damn problem. Frankly, these people frighten me. Politics and governing demand compromise. But these Christians believe they are acting in the name of God, so they can't and won't compromise. I know, I've tried to deal with them.”― Barry Goldwater
"Religious factions will go on imposing their will on others unless the decent people connected to them recognize that religion has no place in public policy. They must learn to make their views known without trying to make their views the only alternatives." -- Barry Goldwater
The Republican Party is a theocracy now. That's why they keep saying Trump was chosen by God. And the base of Trump's supporters believe it...Trump is doing God's work. Ultimately it could be religion, not Putin, that brings our democracy down.
