The U.S. Supreme Court is hearing arguments today about the Mississippi abortion law, and many are also gathered outside the building:
Starting momentarily: Oral argument in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, a case involving Mississippi’s attempt to ban nearly all abortions after 15 weeks. The state has asked the court to overturn Roe v. Wade. We’ll be live-tweeting the argument here in this thread.

The lobbying group National Women’s Law Center offered up this take:
Rise and shine! Today’s the day, and it’s time to show that abortion is love, abortion is justice, and #AbortionIsEssential. Make your voice heard in:

“Abortion is love”?
“Abortion is love” is where the “safe, legal, and rare” movement went off the rails. https://t.co/8Fo6C9VPLh

We’re somewhat surprised they also didn’t claim “abortion is infrastructure.”
Honestly I'm pro choice 100%, but goddamn this message is messed up 😳 essential I could MAYBE get behind, for medical purposes sure, rape cases sure. But LOVE? More like a necessary evil. I can't think of a single situation where getting an abortion is an act of love

Irony… to be able to tweet about this you have to first be actually alive

Parental love is love.
Intergenerational equality of rights is justice.
Pronatalism is essential.
Your PR is witless, soulless, creepy cringe.
Fire whichever intern wrote it.
