    Fair enough. And I agree with your comment about the streets in the upcoming days. And I merely meant to say something supportive regarding your willingness to protest in regards to what's gone down here. Rob

    More rabble for LDAHL to look down his nose at. Just like BLM marchers who were tired of their friends and relatives being targeted, harassed, and killed by out-of-control police officers, women have had it with being oppressed and patronized.

    A woman I used to work with marched for the first time at the Woman's March in 2017, at 60-something. My protest days are over--at least in person--but I'll continue to pay attention and contribute in other ways. I hope this galvanizes a too-complacent public to act.

    I'm too old and feeble to move. Chalk it up to "I regret."

    I'm not sure what marching in the streets will accomplish in this case. How will this produce the desired change?

    I think it's a way to illustrate that there are thousands of people riled up, and that's just the tip of the iceberg. People angry enough to take to the streets will likely work for change in other ways. On the other hand, Republicans demanding their due can just wave their money.

    I saw a doctor being interviewed on the local NBC affiliate on the decision and she kept referring to birthing persons.

    Women have nothing now - not our own swimming trophies, not even pregnancy as an issue.

    Yes we are oppressed and patronized.

    that's generally all protest ever does, if one knows that going in, so much the better.

    Maybe it will be a push back against the court passing yet more draconian laws (I mean probably not, but possibly so)

    I think you just inadvertently identified one of the odd , unfortunate potential consequences. A trans man who has sex with men who unintentionally ends up pregnant and is forced to carry to term. I can only imagine the emotional discord of being forced with threat of violence by the government that someone in that situation would feel.

    equivalent to that of a cis woman in the same situation right?

    I used to think this way too. I have NEVER been so disgusted or inclined to act. It is a way to show MAJOR malcontent and, perhaps, show the dumbass republicans how many people will vote against them going forward.

    Interestingly, Warren Buffett is making a stand too!
