Sen. Josh Hawley has come up with the perfect solution for how to handle unwanted pregnancies in America now that the Supreme Court appears poised to overturn Roe v. Wade.
Speaking to his local ABC News affiliate last week, the anti-choice, anti-LGBTQ senator from Missouri, who believes the sexual revolution of the 1960s was “a great step back” for society, was asked about the possibility of abortion rights being stripped away and what should happen next.

“Adoption needs to become much easier,” he said. “It needs to be facilitated both for those who want to adopt and for those that want to give children up for adoption.”
“So, I think there will be work to do in those areas to make sure that folks who want to have babies and to adopt babies are able to do so and those who want to put them up for adoption can do so as well.”
Hawley suggesting adoption should be “easier” is deeply ironic considering that, just last year, he falsely claimed the Equality Act would force adoption agencies to “change [their] faith-based practices or face government punishment.”
During a Senate hearing, he essentially argued that religious groups must be allowed to legally discriminate against queer people, despite several faith-based organizations saying they can serve members of the LGBTQ community without a conflict to their beliefs.

In addition to that, Hawley has a 0% rating with the HRC for opposing the Equality Act, the Family Act, and the Every Child Deserves a Family Act. Meanwhile, he has a 100% approval rating from the antigay hate group, Family Research Council, which has tirelessly worked to strip away LGBTQ rights, including same-sex adoption rights, since 1983.
Since the Roe v. Wade draft opinion penned by Justice Alito leaked last week, Hawley has called women’s rights activists “pathetic thugs” and accused them of “terrorizing” Supreme Court justices. This morning, he and his wife, Erin, went on Fox & Friends to further accuse them of “assaulting” American families by exercising their right to protest.
“The hypocrisy from the left is really unbelievable,” Hawley, who supported the insurrections who killed a cop on January 6, said. “Here we have the White House encouraging people to go out to do engage in what amounts to harassment, which, by the way, is illegal.”

Here’s how people are responding to Hawley’s Fox & Friends appearance this morning…
Now do people who violently attack government buildings.

You had no issue with folks targeting the homes of school board members. You also had no issue when you raised your fist in unity with the folks who attacked the Capitol.

Any thoughts on people yelling at women going into Planned Parenthood Offices.
If the protesters had raised their fist in solidarity with opposition to the ruling, would that have changed your mind?

It’s strange how people pick and choose which protests are okay and which aren’t. Your upset about this but not January 6th? I’m sorry but I support all peaceful protests and speak out against all non-peaceful protests….no matter what issue they protest.

Did you speak out when Dr Fauci was threatened at his home?
— Garzillo (@garzillo_girl) May 10, 2022
The Supreme Court okayed the protesting/harassing of women outside of women’s clinics, citing freedom of speech and their right to protest. Alito voted for that himself. Now he doesn’t like it? Now it’s not okay when someone does it to him? That’s too bad.

I can think of no greater example in our recent history which exemplifies just how out of touch Republicans are with this nation then what is coming for them in light of the forthcoming supreme court ruling.
Who is his wife? Why is she speaking?
People who believe adoption is a cure all are incredibly out of touch.
Adoption comes with consequences. Even in stable homes, people grow up with trauma that comes with being adopted.
america in decline. thanks republicans.
HAWLEY IS A STENCH FILLED MORON WITH NO REDEMING VALUE.
There are 100s of thousands of orphans around the world. They should work on helping those kids first.
Foster care is a mess and they don’t seem to care about those kids either.
They are pro birth not pro life.
Thank you! What about all the black kids getting murdered at a disproportionate rate. What about all those homeless babies/kids on Skid Row dying from starvation, infections, drugs and they look the other way because “Those lifes” are not important there only PRO LIFE when it suits them. I SO over these nutcases in decision making positions. America is a racist, homophobic, no choice, have and have nots country. Progressively heading towards the 19th century
Josh Hawley is a grotesque phony and one of the worst of the new crap, er, crop of RepuQs. And that’s saying something the other posterchildren (Taylor Greene, Gaetz, Boebert, etc.) clamoring for attention!
By all means let’s have more babies who can’t be cared for because the Republicans are busy cutting welfare that is used to support them or fill more children shelters or all ready understaffed foster care. Then you have the “so called christian” homes who will only allow the kids to go to “so called christian” foster care so that they can be abused even more.
It boggles the mind to force women to give birth but cut any programs that can help them. And social programs are always the first to get the chop.
Hawley is a despicable human being who is making a name for himself now. If things don’t change, he will be President one day. It actually makes me sick to even think about it.
Let’s make it easier! Fewer background checks, zero interviews. Matt Gaetz can take a few home with him. Sure, the lack of red tape will help the children. Republicans are coming up with lots of great proposals.
Who cares what this twit and pariah’s opinion is? He’s a traitor, and should be prosecuted, not asked for his opinion about pregnancies of women, especially women he doesn’t know.
that guy has sex, in the missionary position for the sole purpose of procreation. i cant think of anything more brutal and heinous than that. well. that and whoever allows him to penetrate them. yow
Just another GQP Neo NAZI FASCIST creep. Their karma is gonna be a bitch !!
One of the guys ripping Josh’s butt needs to come out and drop the pics/vids so his people will turn on and boot him from office. No way he isn’t a total sub bottom into fisting, humiliation, adult baby, and watersports.
@ Prax07: I think he is another masochistic self loathing creepy sick weird republican bottom !!!
Little Joshua looks awfully homosexual to me. My gaydar activates any time I see him on TV or hear him audibly clutching his pearls. My gaydar historically has had close to 100% accuracy. Just saying …..
I’d love to introduce him to his prostate.
Men like this ?? wow ask him to get a vasectomy, everyone when the lifers start screaming, simply fight back with info for all the children globally in need of food and health care, and what they are going to do about this, they run the other way cowards, don’t tell me and or my Dr and sisters what to do with our bodies, they are the same that whined about masks
