It’s really tough to type with these oven mitts on our hands, but the takes are coming in so fast and so hot following the retirement of Justice Anthony Kennedy we have no choice.
And speaking of choice, The Daily Beast is reporting that women on Twitter are urging other women to stock up on birth control and abortifacients in the wake of Kennedy’s announcement, knowing that President Trump’s nominee is going to help overturn Roe v Wade.
Justice Kennedy's retirement has sparked a push to get IUDs https://t.co/ZeUgfV1HPV

In less than five hours, there’s a rush to get IUD’s. I’m not sure you’ve ever even visited Earth 1. https://t.co/svJJskS0jx

OK, we read the article and we wouldn’t go so far as to say there’s a “push” to get IUDs, but some women are tweeting about it, because, you know, America’s literally going to be “The Handmaid’s Tale” by fall.
Ladies: While contraception is a personal choice, for women who are not planning to have children for some time, I recommend you get an IUD. Like, NOW.

We agree … but weren’t couples who aren’t planning to have children using some form of contraception already?
Wait. So abortion doesn't have to be used as birth control? Maybe, just maybe, there's more preventative measures that can be taken first? Mind. Blown. https://t.co/TVIN4M3Nj0

Although this article isn't based on any actual evidence, an uptick in IUD use would be fantastic. Family planning should be proactive, not after the fact, and IUDs have a typical-use failure rate of under 1%. https://t.co/A036NcjBzG

Wait, so you can take preemptive measures not to get pregnant in the first place and not have to slaughter unborn children ???. https://t.co/yPA4uwb6iE

Doesn't this just prove what we've been saying? That liberals like to use abortion as birth control. Which is sickening. https://t.co/UsPOZHZldd

Wow… it's almost like they can be responsible for not even getting pregnant in the first place and then they don't have to murder an innocent baby!!! https://t.co/uA5eD7OfPP

More birth control = fewer abortions https://t.co/cUskD2dNi3

I mean….how is that a bad thing. Prevention is always better than abortion. There's less risk and harm to women who use them. https://t.co/Kn0j4l7uWO

You mean, sparked a push to be more responsible? Nice! https://t.co/sWORGHcbdp

i don't understand why you wouldn't already have an IUD if this is your line of thinking. even if you don't believe abortion is a big deal, why would you want to go through such a procedure if you could easily avoid it to begin with? https://t.co/Sd9Cm8Xm5v
