Eleven Ridiculous Responses From Massachusetts Politicians To Roe v. Wade Reversal

Printed from: https://newbostonpost.com/2022/06/24/eleven-ridiculous-responses-from-massachusetts-politicians-to-roe-v-wade-reversal/

The U.S. Supreme Court did something great on Friday.

In Dobbs v. Jackson, the court overturned both Roe v. Wade and Planned Parenthood v. Casey, sending abortion law back to the states.

It’s an important step in the quest to abolish abortion — and far from the last step.

Naturally, the pro-legal-abortion side had a meltdown. 

Alas, we didn’t get any Stephen Lynch doublespeak insisting on why he’s the real pro-lifer and why pro-lifers aren’t pro-life, or John Kerry saying not killing babies is bad for the environment. (Not yet, anyway.)

But there’s plenty here to laugh at.

Just don’t look too hard for any kind of substantive rebuttal of U.S. Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito’s majestic majority opinion in Dobbs.

Here are 11 ridiculous reactions to the high court’s decision from Massachusetts politicians: 


1.  U.S. Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-Cambridge)

If you want a Massachusetts indigenous politician’s perspective on the Supreme Court aborting Roe v. Wade, the best we can do is Elizabeth Warren.

Warren, who lost Massachusetts in the 2020 Democratic presidential primary, is very, very, very, very angry.

Fauxcahontas spoke to a crowd outside the Massachusetts State House in Boston on Friday, June 24.

“Roe is dead. Six extremists on the United States Supreme Court have decided that they can force all of America to bend to their personal, religious and moral views,” Warren said. “Roe is dead, but the Supreme Court extremists do not get the last word. We are here because we will make Roe alive again.”

If only you could make all those babies alive again, Liz.

Religion is important. But when it comes to abortion, religion isn’t necessary. All you need is reason. An unborn product of conception is obviously a human being. What else would it be?

The only question at that point is whether you care about human beings.

Other than looking out for Number One, of course.


2.  U.S. Senator Ed Markey (D-Malden)

You might think Ed Markey would like children.

He’s repeatedly told us that his work experience in the private sector consists of driving an ice cream truck in the summer when he was in college.

Children were the reason he got any business. 

But Markey hasn’t had a real job since then. He’s been a politician leeching off the taxpayers. So he may be a little out of touch.

Ed Markey’s current side on the abortion question lost, so now he wants to change the rules. Here’s what he tweeted about the decision


Thirteen states stand poised to enforce radical and unjust bans on abortion. The Court’s decision has destroyed nearly fifty years of precedent and will allow the criminalization of the right to this essential healthcare.

Again, I ask my colleagues in the Senate what other judicial outrage must we endure from the illegitimate, far-right majority on the Supreme Court before we act? Fight back and expand the Court now.


Talk about being a sore loser.

Killing children in elective abortions is not “essential healthcare.”

And the Supreme Court majority in Dobbs is legitimate. The decision painstakingly demonstrates how anti-constitutional and anti-logical Roe v. Wade was.

Kinda like Ed Markey.


3.  Governor Charlie Baker

Let’s start off by giving Charlie Baker credit:  he is a nice reminder that the pro-life movement is a nonpartisan movement that is not owned by any political party. He also vetoed the wretched ROE Act abortion expansion bill that state legislators enacted anyway in December 2020.

All right, enough of the niceties.

Our governor signed an executive order on Friday that says Massachusetts won’t cooperate with other states’ pro-life laws.

Here’s what his press release says it does:


The order prohibits any Executive Department agencies from assisting another state’s investigation into a person or entity for receiving or delivering reproductive health services that are legal in Massachusetts.

The order also protects Massachusetts providers who deliver reproductive health care services from losing their professional licenses or receiving other professional discipline based on potential out of state charges.

Under the executive order, the Commonwealth will not cooperate with extradition requests from other states pursuing criminal charges against individuals who received, assisted with, or performed reproductive health services that are legal in Massachusetts.


Hmmm. Ever heard of the Full Faith and Credit Clause of the United States Constitution?

Something about respecting other states’ laws and making sure people charged with crimes in other states are “delivered up.”

Or is Massachusetts seceding from the union over abortion?

Here’s Baker awful personal statement that was a part of this press release:

“I am deeply disappointed in today’s decision by the Supreme Court which will have major consequences for women across the country who live in states with limited access to reproductive health care services. The Commonwealth has long been a leader in protecting a woman’s right to choose and access to reproductive health services, while other states have criminalized or otherwise restricted access.”

That’s right, Governor. There are consequences — like fewer dead children.

Stuff like this is why Geoff Diehl would’ve destroyed Baker in a Republican primary. 


4.  Lieutenant Governor Karyn Polito

Speaking of awful, or in this case AWFL (Affluent Female White Liberal), Karyn Polito also weighed in on Baker’s regrettable executive order.

“We are proud of the Commonwealth’s history of ensuring access to reproductive health care, and will continue to do so, despite today’s ruling from the Supreme Court,” Polito’s flacks say she said. “With these actions, Massachusetts is once again leading the way in protecting a woman’s right to choose.”

Karyn Polito is on the record as saying that she is proud that it is legal to kill children in Massachusetts.

With Republicans like these …


5.  Anthony Amore, Republican Candidate for State Auditor

I was sweating bullets waiting for this one.

What does the Republican candidate for auditor think about abortion?

Anthony Amore decided to go Leeroy Jenkins mode on us and put out a statement about how he’s glad that abortion is legal in Massachusetts — even though the auditor position has nothing to do with abortion. 

“I am thankful to live and run for office in a state where Roe is codified into state law,” Amore tweeted. “Governor Baker made the correct (and courageous) call to issue an executive order protecting providers who deliver reproductive health care services from extradition and professional repercussions. Massachusetts will never cooperate with states that attempt to investigate and prosecute individuals over reproductive services.”

This un-virtue signaling is pathetic. 

We should be ashamed to live in a state where it’s legal to kill unborn children.

And Amore should be ashamed that he put out this statement.


6.  U.S. Representative Ayanna Pressley (D-Hyde Park)

If you thought that Pressley would have something insightful to say on the matter, you guessed correctly.

“We will never stop fighting to affirm what we know is true:  abortion care is a fundamental human right,” Pressley tweeted.

Ah, yes. Who could forget? The fundamental human right to kill your own child?

It’s just like the right to clean drinking water.

Except it’s not.

The right to life is a human right.


7.  U.S. Representative Jake Auchincloss (D-Newton)

What should people who don’t like this Supreme Court decision do?

According to Jake Auchincloss, they should vote for Democrats.

“This SCOTUS decision is a judicial assault on women’s right to control their own bodies and their own lives,” Auchincloss tweeted. “This November, go to the polls, give Democrats a greater margin in the Senate, and we will send legislation to President Biden that protects safe and legal abortion.”

Democrats control both chambers of the federal legislature and the presidency — and Roe v. Wade fell.

And of course, after the November elections, Democrats won’t control anything except the ability to tell Joe Biden where to shuffle next.

And another thing:  Even though the Democratic Party is generally terrible on abortion, this is not a strictly Democrat-Republican issue. Some Republicans are terrible on abortion — like every Republican governor Massachusetts has had since 1973.

That includes Charlie Baker, whom Auchincloss supports.


8.  Jesse Mermell, Former Brookline Selectman

The former Brookline selectman, ex-Planned Parenthood employee, and failed Congressional candidate was clearly triggered by the court’s decision. 

“I’ll be protesting, crying, and demanding our rights in front of the Massachusetts State House with my siblings in the #abortion rights movement at 5pm today,” Mermell tweeted. “If you’re pissed off and scared, too, come join us. Spread the word. #mapoli.”

Imagine crying because in some states there will be less baby killing.


9.  Kim Driscoll, Mayor of Salem, Candidate for Lieutenant Governor

All of a sudden, the mayor of Salem believes in bodily autonomy.

“There is no right more fundamental than the right to control your own body,” Driscoll said in a statement. “Millions are now less safe, less free to exercise that right. Grateful the Legislature ensured abortion rights will be protected & accessible here but now is the time to fight, more than ever. #mapoli”

The right to live is obviously the most fundamental right. Without it, you have no other rights.

But there’s also a head-shaking irony here. The city of Salem, Massachusetts had a vaccine passport in place from January to February 2022. And her city had a mask mandate. Clearly, Driscoll thinks she should control people’s bodies in those instances — just not when it comes to killing unborn children.

If these pro-abortion sycophants really cared about bodily autonomy, they would’ve stood up for Leah Cole Allen when Beverly Hospital fired her for not getting the coronavirus vaccine. 


10.  Former U.S. Labor Secretary Robert Reich

Robert Reich, who failed to secure the Democratic Party’s nomination in the 2002 Massachusetts gubernatorial race, had some thoughts on the matter.

“The Supreme Court just sent us back 50 years,” Reich tweeted. “A devastating day in our nation’s history.”

He’s wrong on both fronts.

Sadly, the Supreme Court did not send us back 50 years. Otherwise, abortion would be illegal in Massachusetts again. What a great thing. Abortion should be illegal in Massachusetts. It should be illegal not only in the entire United States, but the entire earth and Milky Way galaxy. We cannot allow Mars to become an abortion destination. 


11.  U.S. Representative Seth Moulton (D-Salem)

The failed presidential candidate issued a deep statement about the news.

“This is a dark day in American history,” Moulton said in a press statement emailed to NewBostonPost. “We should all pray that Americans come together at the ballot box to turn back the Republicans who believe that they should own our freedoms, own our Congress, and own our Supreme Court for themselves.”

A dark day?

No, Congressman, it is not.

September 11, 2001 was a dark day. December 7, 1941 was a dark day.

Fewer unborn babies will be killed now. It’s only one step towards getting rid of this barbaric practice, but a good one nonetheless.

Today is a wonderful day.
