    8 What's the post Roe world look like?

    Just like everyone else we’re talking about the draft Supreme Court ruling that would overturn Roe vs Wade and tee’s up erasing the last 70 years of human rights in the US.

    Facebook Podcasts Retirement - June 3Podcast hosting change againLive stream May 21 at 1:00 PM MDTDraft Roe Overturn
    Alito focuses on no constitutional or historical right to an abortion.
    Says ruling is limited to just abortion.
    Calls out Lawrence v Texas and Obergefell v Hodges as wrong decided with no constitutional or historical right tied to it, it even questions Loving v Virginia.
    Guts jurisprudence on Right to Privacy and personal Liberty
    - Gay rights
    - Trans rights
    - Contraceptive access
    - interracial marriage
    - Personal liberty
    Fit’s perfectly with World Congress of Families' goals which means the GOP has bought into White Genocide philosophy See AN435
    This is bad for everyone, but really bad for women:
    - Many state bans do not have exceptions for the mothers health, that stops doctors from ending a miscarriage until the fetal heartbeat stops. This has killed women and will continue to do so.
    - Many states are not leaving exceptions for rape or incest.
    - Some are estimating that this will double maternal mortality for black women, not counting botched home abortions.
    - This will increase child poverty by making it harder for women who have children to control their family sizes as well as increasing the number of women to drop out of high school, college, or forgo career opportunities.
    - If the World Congress of Families gets their way, all women’s rights will be removed as they want individual rights eliminated and for families, under a man, to be where the rights are held

Awesome

Love this podcast. Like the people who get invited to come on ( mostly Mikey). Even being an atheist I still like learning about other religions and how its practiced. And honestly I’m glad that Wesley is gone. He was just a bump on a log kind of guy.

Dantuck7 ,

Dawkins

Remember, this old guy had a stroke about two years ago.

joe.Jay ,

Needs improvements

I like the content they put out and the guest however it’s better when his better half is on or he has someone to interact with. Also when he is just giving what’s in the news stuff he tends to run the stories together without letting the listeners know he has switched to another story so you have to rewind sometimes to check or you get really confused.
