With apologies to Harlan Ellison.
An out of the usual Sunday post, but still Art Journaling, as I process things.
Today, the Court discards … balance. It says that from the very moment of fertilization, a woman has no rights to speak of. A State can force her to bring a pregnancy to term, even at the steepest personal and familial costs. (from the dissent by the only three sane members of the court.)
…because no one told the conservative right and Scrotus that The Handmaid’s Tale was never meant to be aspirational.

I am in the US and terrified for my daughters, granddaughters, and myself. What comes next?

I know. Having lived in a pre-Roe world before I am terrified what post-Roe is going to look like.

I do not live in the USA, and I am now of an age where this does not affect me, but my heart goes out to all those women who are now denied a course of action that was available to their mothers and grandmothers. I am shocked, but not surprised at such a backward step. This demonstrates how easily rights and privileges can be removed from people.
