Roe vs. Wade: Megan Rapinoe slams decision as ‘violent attack on women’s bodies’


NEWYou can now listen to Fox News articles!

The Supreme Court’s decision overturning Roe v. Wade has generated a growing number of factually inaccurate and lopsided reactions from many prominent voices in the worlds of sports and entertainment.

Football star Megan Rapinoe unsurprisingly contributed to the confusing redefinition of language in her statement on the decision:

“I just can’t underestimate how sad and cruel it is. I think the cruelty is the point. Because it’s in no way pro-life. This way of thinking, or this belief politics, is associated with a complete lack of motivation around gun laws, it comes with pro-death penalty, it comes with anti-health care, anti-prenatal care, anti-childcare, anti-pre-K, anti-food aid, anti-welfare, anti-education, anti-maternity leave, anti-paternity leave.

“It’s not pro-life. And it’s very frustrating and disheartening, and frankly infuriating to hear that’s why people want to end abortion rights and end that aspect of it. life of a woman – not just health care and general basic security in this country, but her bodily autonomy, and the right to liberty, and the pursuit of happiness and freedom, are under attack in this case. And that’s just incredibly discouraging.

Even if you agree with abortion, calling a decision that does nothing to ban abortion “cruel” is absurd and deliberately inaccurate. The Court simply gives back to the states the ability to determine for themselves, through legislation, what the rules should be in their state.

Rapinoe also apparently believes that killing unborn babies in no way meets the definition of “cruel” and that the possibility of more children being born is not “pro-life.”

She went further, blaming all men for the Supreme Court interpreting the Constitution in a way she disagrees with:

You authorize a violent and consistent attack on the autonomy of women’s bodies, on women’s rights, on women’s minds, on our hearts, on our souls,’ Rapinoe said when asked what would be his message to men, as a monolith. “We live in a country that is always trying to undo what you allowed, to what you have had the privilege of feeling all your life.

That this type of rhetoric is encouraged and promoted by glowing media reports celebrating his bravery and “emotional response” is outrageous and inexcusable.

Beyond the ludicrous hyperbole that anyone who disagrees with her stance is pro “cruelty,” she engages in the same hypocrisy we typically see from those who share her ideology.

According to Rapinoe, her body and that of other women are under attack, but as Katie Pavlich cunningly points out, she wouldn’t have an answer if asked to describe what a woman really is:

Rapinoe women are tools to use and throw away as needed. When it suits her needs, she is a strong advocate for what she sees as women’s rights. However, when it comes to the basics of biology and competitive fairness, she’s more than happy to erase them.

None of this is about protecting women’s rights, it’s about political posturing. Rapinoe’s ideology demands that she engage in the inevitable hypocrisy of pretending to care about women while being unable to define them. And she’s more than happy to oblige.

For her, it’s somehow not a “violent and constant attack on the autonomy of women’s bodies” when biological men transition, compete in women’s leagues and physically dominate their opponents.

Arguing that the Supreme Court’s decision is an attack on women’s bodies is much less convincing when you can’t even agree on what a woman’s body really is.

Whether or not you think the court’s decision was justified, Rapinoe’s brand of inaccurate and hypocritical activism is another example of the absurd contradictions at the heart of modern progressive ideology.
