Hi mastedon, I have a real question: why are republicans so bent on banning abortion? I know it’s about controlling women, but I don’t see exactly what they have to gain from that, unless they’re explicitly gunning for a handmaid’s tale kind of situation

@Tori economics. the very best thing someone can do for capital is to have a baby, so they don’t want women doing anything else.

and of course emboldened by misguided use of sincerely held religious belief.


@Tori deep seated disdain and hatred of a specific group needs no logic. I think it’s a lack of belief that people with uteruses are not really people and so it’s easy to legislate control over those people’a bodies, no matter how much they may love and or value the fetus. Is it conscious hatred and disdain? For some. For others, no.
