Well, the day has come. The Supreme Court is currently hearing arguments in the most consequential abortion case in decades. And, of course, accused sexual predator Brett Kavanaugh is once again trending on Twitter.
SCOTUS is considering a Mississippi law that seeks to ban abortions after just 15 weeks of pregnancy, including those caused by rape or incest. The state wants Roe v Wade overturned, thus eliminating the constitutional right to an abortion.

If the court agrees, states would be free to set their own standards on abortion, including banning it entirely. 22 states have already begun planning for this. 12 have already passed trigger laws, which would automatically outlaw abortion the moment Roe is overruled. A final ruling is expected in June.
The fact that Kavanaugh, who loves beer and hates LGBTQ people, is going to be one of the deciding votes in this matter is deeply troubling given his alleged history of sexual assault against women and those 4,500 tips the FBI received during his confirmation hearing that it never actually investigated.
Now, the tweets…
Good morning to everyone who thinks Brett Kavanaugh is a piece of underqualified trash.

Brett's Trending…..I just curious who paid off Brett Kavanaugh’s $92,000 country club fees, his $200,000 credit card debt, and his $1.2 million mortgage to purchase a SCOTUS seat? pic.twitter.com/S7LMMBlAxN

So is this the week that America finds out if Roe v Wade is "settled law" like Brett Kavanaugh said, or did HE LIE to Susan Collins to get confirmed…America is watching.

Crazy to think the right to self-determination of every woman in the USA rests with John Roberts, Brett Kavanaugh, and Amy Coney-Barrett.

Weird how the people complaining about Brett Kavanaugh are the exact same people who said they could never vote for Hillary.
We're in this position because these exact same people are the very ones who screwed us over in 2016.

I'm old enough to remember when tRump pulled Justice Kennedy aside and the next thing we knew, he was replaced by the pathetic beer drinking frat boy Brett Kavanaugh.
Was he paid off or threatened?

Why do we know more about Brett Kavanaugh's political agenda than we do about who paid his debts?
— Rex Zane (@rexzane1) December 1, 2021
The GOP is so clueless that they can't distinguish between legitimate, concerned questions and "character assassination", and nobody has benefitted from this more than Kavanaugh.

Brett Kavanaugh, A guy that was accused of sexual assault, has the power to decide what you can do with your vagina. This is the ultimate violation. #SCOTUS pic.twitter.com/nw9OyHeViD

Brett Kavanaugh won't vote to overturn Roe.
Susan Collins told me so.

Calling Christopher Wray, Director of the FBI. How many of the 4,500 ‘tips’ about Kavanaugh have the FBI investigated? We need to know before he starts to investigate women’s reproductive organs again.

This is probably the only opportunity Brett Kavanaugh has ever had to leave an impression on a woman’s body.

Brett Kavanaugh was just a pathetic beer drinking frat boy.

First, they came for women’s rights (to their bodies, for now)
Then, they came for the LGBTQ people.
Then, the blacks (but, have they really stopped…?)
Then, the ones who aren’t nazis
I listened to the arguements and I wanted to puke when the lawyers demanding that roe be overturned used the words of all of us being equal as the base of their arguements stating the fetus were the least of us cuz I KNOW that when they come for gay marriage and gay rights you wont hear that arguement from ANY of them. Hypocrites and liars all. The latest polls show over 60% of ALL AMERICANS want ROE left alone and only 26% want it gone with the rest having no opinion yet these phony religious liars will push their beliefs on the American people
Only 60%? We’re fukt.
The twitter account “Optimist Prime” is 100% correct and I recall in 2016 having conversations with women about this who said they could not vote for Hillary. Now they all complain about the Scotus. If this isn’t settled law by now imagine what they’ll try and do to LGBT rights.
It sounds like the author has already started crying! lol
Putting the seriousness of this moment aside, when will Twitter just rebrand as Petty? Petty Posts? Or Crytter? (Critter seemed too on the nose). Every time I see an article here or elsewhere that is basically just a bunch of embedded tweets I remember why I quit the platform. 7 years “sober” and I don’t regret it at all. And I was an early adopter back in 2009 when it launched. It used to be mostly fun. Now it’s just an echo chamber for folks who want validation from like minded people or a way of constantly harassing others with little to no consequences. /end rant
Also, Brett is an easy target. Amy Coney Barrett is the smarter one to go after if they have to attack somebody.
wow have a drink. NOthing worse than a recovered alkie for better than thou bullshit
@barryaksarben Sorry luv but I don’t drink. Really don’t like the taste of alcohol. I’ve never claimed to be better than anyone. I just think the world would in a much healthier place without the majority of social media. If you think it’s so harmless you really should step outside your bubble into the real world.
in fairness, it is reckless to characterize Justice Kavanaugh as “accused sexual predator” for something that may have occurred while he was in high school–though his accuser cannot remember the year and she told no one about it for 30 years? I regret that he is on the Supreme Court and fear that the right to civil marriage for all will eventually perish along with other hard-earned rights. Much of the blame rests with the two Bush presidencies. They polluted the Supreme Court with harsh right wingers and built the foundation for the current Republican party.
IT is not reckless because he was accused by alot more than the one time in high school. There were over 4500 tips called in to have him investigated for many attacks that were ignored by the FBI
I find it so difficult to believe that a court that just sent a man to the gallows is arguing over the rights of a non-viable fetus to live. I also heard one of the justice’s say something to the effect of if a woman has can make the decision to end a life, does she also not have the same right and knowledge not to get pregnant in the first place…………..OMG! Yeah, my daddy raped me now I am pregnant with my sister…..?
That’s one of my biggest complaints with the pro-life folks. Happy to force a woman to have a baby she either doesn’t want, can’t take care of, could/will kill her, or forced upon her via r*pe then happily send that baby to either die in some foreign country fighting in an unjust war or send him to his death via capital punishment. Nothing but a bunch of hypocrites.
If these so called pro life religious cult members were told that the fetus was gay or bi or transsexual, they would be all for abortions. They just love to cherry pick their stances
Just remember this: Susan Sarandon helped bring us Trump. And Kavenaugh. And the end of Row vs Wade.
I don’t blame Kavanaugh if Roe v Wade gets overturned. I blame those who voted for Jill Stein instead of Hillary Clinton.
He doesn’t care about Twitter. It’s not a real place. He’s not crying. He’s ordering a keg for when he overturns Roe. Not crying. Stop acting like Twitter matters. You’re giving false hope to your readership who’s going to be pretty side-swiped by the midterms. Which will be a bloodbath.
Many years ago a friend of mine had an abortion after a date who wouldn’t take “no” for an answer. It didn’t take her anywhere near 15 weeks to make her decision.
