Yesterday, the house held a hearing on abortion rights. It went as awfully as one could expect. No, actually that's not true. The depth of cruelty has reached lows that one would expect from the 1940s. The problem is that these elected representatives know better. Spoiler Alert: Abortion Provider Dr. Yashica Robinson, is a black woman.

Today’s House hearing on abortion rights was bound to have its share of ignorant and offensive questions, not to mention disinformation, from a certain cohort of white male Republicans. But at times the questions asked of the witnesses—particularly Dr. Yashica Robinson, an OB-GYN and abortion provider in Alabama—were just too absurd, if not simply hateful.

Dripping condescension, but seemingly unaware of what an abortion is, Rep. Mike Johnson (R-La.) repeatedly asked Robinson if she would support the abortion of a child who was “halfway out of the birth canal.”

“I can’t even fathom that,” she replied, “just like you probably can’t imagine what you would do if your daughter was raped. If it hasn’t happened, it may be difficult for you to—.” Johnson cut her off before she could continue.
There is video embedded with the article. You can watch for yourself.

The thing is these men KNOW BETTER. What they are doing is dangerous. They are putting the lives of these doctors in danger. That's not hyperbole or an abstract. This kind of deeply hateful rhetoric is deadly.
On May 31st, 2009, Scott Roeder assassinated Dr. George Tiller. Roeder had been waiting patiently that morning in the pews of Tiller’s church. Right after Tiller finished his job as an usher, Roeder walked into the church foyer, pressed a gun against Tiller’s forehead and shot him. He died from the single gunshot wound.

Roeder killed the doctor for one reason, and one reason only: Tiller was a prominent abortion provider – maybe even the most prominent in the country at the time – and Roeder wanted to stop abortion. No one questions that Roeder’s radical anti-abortion views were responsible for Tiller’s death.

But this, the day Bill O’Reilly was ousted from Fox News, is a good time to remember O’Reilly’s role in the Tiller tragedy – especially in the context of newly released statistics showing that harassment of abortion providers in various forms is on the increase.

O’Reilly had waged an unflagging war against Tiller that did just about everything short of urging his followers to murder him.
23 years after his assassination, that network has Cucker Tarlson spewing replacement theory. It's parroted by these same politicians, and we have a race massacre in Buffalo. This is no accident. It is white supremacy. It's the removal of rights for anyone not white male or those that closely align with them (their white women.)

The Klan would not have existed without the support of white women. So when you hear about them coming for your birth control next, remember those that control the narrative and shape history. Then ask yourself, what next? Will we have to go back to asking our husband to give us permission to obtain a credit card? Will they have to co-sign a loan for a car? And - if you aren't married - what then?

This is happening. There is only one way to stop this. Vote Blue all the way down the ticket... Stop letting them control the narrative.
