It’s almost all about politics

As most everyone knows, a draft Supreme Court opinion authored by Samuel Alito that would overturn Roe v. Wade has created a groundswell of opposition and protests. This opposition has always been, and continues to be, mostly politically driven.

Tellingly, the opposition is fiercer here in deep blue Connecticut where abortion rights are not in any danger. Being a politician can be hard, trying to navigate the line between appeal and rejection. But with Roe, politicians here, especially those that are statewide, only have to worry whether their “support of women” is vocal enough to gain entry to the celebration and fruits thereof.
