Radio host Jason Rantz lives in Seattle so the rest of us don’t have to, and he sends up warning flares now and then whenever the city is preparing to do something particularly stupid. Now that Roe v. Wade has been overturned, Seattle City Council foresees a lot of pregnant women coming to the city seeking abortions, and it’s introduced legislation to make those women a protected class.
NEW: The Seattle City Council is ready to pretend women choosing abortions must be a protected class.
Not only is this unnecessary, and likely already protected, it demeans people who have actually suffered from discrimination in the city.https://t.co/W9TVNGl1xd

“The idea is to create, as a protected class, people who are seeking abortions, especially because we anticipate that there will be a lot of people coming to Washington seeking care,” said [council member Tammy] Morales.
The legislation adds protections for “an individual’s actual, potential, perceived, or alleged pregnancy outcomes.” Morales’ reasoning is both ridiculous and wholly contrived.
“We want to make sure that they aren’t targeted by restaurants or hotels or any other sort of entity that they are visiting while they’re here seeking that care,” she said.
We like the way she refers to abortion as “care.”
The proposed ordinance proclaims that:
“The state shall not penalize, prosecute, or otherwise take adverse action against an individual based on their actual, potential, perceived, or alleged pregnancy outcomes” …
… restricting and/or denying access to abortion services will have a disproportionate impact on poor communities and Black, Indigenous, or people of color (BIPOC) communities …
… the City recognizes that transgender and gender diverse people with the capacity to become pregnant face increased barriers and stigma when accessing abortion services ….
Paging George Orwell … “perceived or alleged pregnancy outcomes”? “People with the capacity to become pregnant”?
Seattle, this is all you. Your circus, your clowns.

Are they also going to help this “protected” class of women with emotional and mental health services post abortions? Or, are they just going to pretend to?

These hacks have made Seattle an unsafe space, why would they care about women’s safety? Please vote these charlatans out of office, the sooner the better

The legislation is just virtue signaling within virtue signaling.
