stop using the "this will only stop safe abortions" argument against conservatives. they know and are fine with women dying a bloody death for trying to get an abortion. for them it's not a bug, it's a feature.

Roe v. Wade is based on the Due Process Clause, 14th amendment, and right to privacy. In reference to the overturning of Roe v. Wade, Justice Clarence Thomas has said "In future cases we should reconsider all of this court's substansive due process precedents." Here are some of those related cases - some of which Thomas explicitly mentioned.
Meyer v. Nebraska (1923): The teaching of languages other than English
Pierce v. Society of Sisters (1925): Non-public schooling. It is cited as precedent in over 100 cases.
Gitlow v. New York (1925): Extends free speech & press protections
Skinner v. State of Oklahoma (1942): The forced sterilization of criminals
Griswold v. Connecticut (1965) & Einsenstadt v. Baird (1972): Access to contraception.
Loving v. Virginia (1967): Interracial marriage
Planned Parenthood v. Casey (1992): Expanded on abortion rights, related to undue burden standard.
Lawerence v. Texas (2003): Private, consensual sex (namely gay sex)
Obergefell v. Hodges (2015): Gay marriage
Ramos v. Louisiana (2020): Unanimous guilty verdicts at trials
I know this keeps getting said, but the overturning of Roe v. Wade is just the tip of the iceberg.

Your ability to accumulate a cult-like following on social media websites while being bizarrely enigmatic should be studied by Harvard
*Kim Kardashian voice* Not bad for a girl with no talent.

I think I’ve been in your proximity for almost 8 years. We have never really spoken, which is how it seems with most people that “know” you (no one has really ever appeared to be close to you but everybody somehow “knows” you, lol). I used to envy you A LOT. Your words, your looks, your indifference. The intrigue was based on the mystery of you and I see now thousands of people feel the same. Now I feel bad for you. People stalk you and dehumanize you. I really don’t know how you do it. (cont.)
(cont.) It just kinda hit me after you shared the screenshot of all the anonymous bots people were using to view your social media (for your privacy I won’t share which here). I couldn’t imagine living like you do. People are thirsty for information about you and the little you do share is critically analyzed by thousands. Not just here either. I guess my envy has recently turned to sadness and I hope you’re okay. (fin).
I see your rose-coloured glasses finally broke.

Marian Engel, from Notebooks: "Ah, Mon Cahier, čoute"
Text ID: Why do we want this intimacy, this destructive nearness? Both of us are cannibals, we will destroy the wholeness, thus the object, yet we eat, eat, destroy.

Hélène Cixous, from Hélène Cixous, Rootprints
Text ID: Fever, which is unbearable, is a defensive phenomenon. It is a combat. It is the same for suffering: in suffering there is a whole manœuvre of the unconscious, of the soul, of the body, that makes us come to bear the unbearable.
