<PT. VI> Abortion Rights in America: The Trump Effect
30) Part six of a six part series on Abortion: A quick review of what was covered in Parts 1-5 <66th OP>
This is the sixth and final and installment of “Abortion Rights in America”.
(Unless something else crazy happens around this debate…which, you never know!)
There are plenty of people who actually are no fans of Trump, but love the fact that he’s the avatar of an Evangelical Christian agenda. *The fact that the federal government no longer recognizes a woman’s right to an abortion nationwide*, makes Trump an instrument of God in their book, and they are willing to look past the (incredibly, seriously, uniquely, and fatally) flawed man, that helped them deliver on banning abortion.
Many of you who read my piece on Moral issue Voters were hung up on what God’s Will actually means in certain circles. My intention wasn’t to write a piece that was overly critical of your most hard core “pro-lifers”, but was rather trying to shed light on that type of thinking.

Something secular America misses about religious America, is the fact that not everyone on planet earth is living for this world. Rather, many people are living their life much more focused on the after-life. Keep in mind that I do fundamentally believe we humans all have a moral compass (some stronger than others), which creates an innate sense of “right” and “wrong” each one of us holds. But, to be more concerned with the next world, and not focus on making this world better, sadly has not served us particularly well.
My earliest piece “On Abortion and Adoption”, focusing on the tragic case of the ten-year-old-girl, having to cross State lines in order to have a procedure, definitely created the biggest backlash among conservative folks in various chat groups. I can actually understand why conservatives hate the politicization of that young girl getting raped (by incest) and being impregnated. It cuts right at the core of why abortions are necessary.
To confront this fact causes people to actually have to think about abortion in terms that are not simply a matter of “Heaven” and “Hell” or “Good” versus “Evil”. Rather, it forces people to see abortion as not just a matter of protecting an unborn child, but also protecting vulnerable women/girls who are (potentially) about to be a mother through no choice of their own.
Unfortunately, conservative leaning America and all their influencers brain-washed mainstream America into thinking that activist judges were only a thing of the left. Far from it, actually! Donald Trump staked his whole election in 2016 on running for President by appointing judges who would overturn Roe v. Wade.
I discussed in a prior piece how Trump was able to ram in three Supreme Court Judges on his watch. In one of my most recent pieces on this topic, I discussed at length how this current Supreme Court and Justice Samuel Alito in particular (with the drafting of his majority opinion for the court) just trampled on “prior precedent” and “stare decisis”.
For my other two pieces on this topic, I wrote one essay on how - Restricting abortion rights is turning more people into “Outlaws”. You might be surprised that Kansas (of all places, not The Wizard of Oz) being a battleground State for abortion rights.
The “Outlaw” piece, also discussed topics of prohibition and legalized marijuana, as well as how legalized abortion in the 1970s dramatically brought down crime rates throughout America in the 1990s. A number of you had interesting questions about abortion and crime rates, therefore I wrote a follow-up piece on, The “Freakonomics” effect.
Also, on an unrelated note to Freakonomics but still somewhat freaky:
The whole idea of the illuminati controlling population growth in America does feel more like a tin-foil hat type argument, then something that is really happening. But, I still did give it passing mention in a prior piece.
“33- Has the illuminati or the bildenberg group played a role in outlawing abortion? Even though, not that long ago, the media and scientists used to always speak of over-population, now there is a concern for a stagnant population. Have the puppet masters outlawed abortion so we have more people being born in America?” - Josh off Press Press - 41 Thoughts for 41 years
