The Supreme Court overruled Roe v. Wade

and not to discredit or distract from the serious removal of protection for basic human rights and women’s rights that just happened, but Clarence Thomas (one of the Supreme Court judges) explicitly advocated for overturning gay rights in this ruling:

The US Supreme Court struck down the constitutional right guaranteeing safe abortion, even though the majority of people in the US (and even in Texas) agree safe abortions should be protected.

Women are obviously the most immediately impacted—bc the government was ruled that they are too stupid to make decisions about their bodies.

The LGBTQ+ community will also feel an immediate impact, as IVF will likely become unavailable to gay couples who want to have a family. Unfortunately, the largest impact is still forthcoming. Overturning Roe v Wade is going to open a flood gate anti LGBTQ legislation in the traditional slave states, which still are hostile to human rights.

It’s a sad day to be a Texan. Gay marriage and trans children healthcare is going to be the next target on the Conservative agenda

From a Texans perspective:

I hope friends in the international community, or who live in liberal states understand the futility.

The Texas government is an aristocracy, not democracy. The Good Ole Boys are in charge. They pass legislation that serves them, to the detriment of everyone else. The laws in Texas have always been designed to guarantee that the minority blue bloods can maintain power. This dates back to slavery when slaves outnumbered slaveowners. And the Good Ole Boys were afraid of revolution. 

I hope people know that the majority of people in Texas are pro abortion, the majority are pro LGBTQ right to marry. And something that ALMOST no one outside of Texas knows, the VAST majority of Texans are for increased gun regulation (bc we actually know how to use guns here...only people who cant shoot for s.hit need high capacity magazines). But Texans can never get these laws passed because the Good Ole Boys have a grip on the government. They have perfected voter suppression.

Federal protections are the only guaranteed human rights we have here in Texas...and those rights are already too few and poorly enforced.

I hope yall understand that its the government that wants these measures, not the Texas people.
