TKC MUST SEE!!! KANSAS CITY SUNDAY PROTEST ON COUNTRY CLUB PLAZA AGAINST MISSOURI ABORTION BAN!!!
Today a crowd of thousands of opponents against the Missouri 8-week abortion ban gathered on the Kansas City Country Club Plaza in order to voice their protest against the pending legislation.
Political context INDEPENDENT of today's political rhetoric . . .
- Supporters of abortion rights and Democratic Party denizens overall remains a SUPER MINORITY in Jeff City despite a few modest gains amid the blue wave of November 2018.
- Outrage and protest against the Missouri 8-week abortion ban in Jeff City was essentially silenced by the Republican MISSOURI SUPER MAJORITY as it made its way through the State Senate & House.
- A few Kansas City metro legislators like state Rep. Rory Rowland, D-Independence, merely voted “present" in order to opt out of the fight and save backlash from an overwhelming majority of Missouri opponents against abortion.
- Missouri Governor Parson is set to approve the legislation and step closer toward a reelection that faced a few far-right wing GOP critics but now has a solid Conservative record on controversial legislation.
More to the point and for real life perspective that most MSM news outlets gloss over . . .
In the Heartland it's important to realize that the majority of voters support strict regulation of abortion and the abolition of "the procedure" overall despite large-scale protests in urban centers like Kansas City & STL.
But more important to our conversation on this blog regarding all things cynical and snarky.
BOTH KANSAS CITY MAYORAL CANDIDATES TURNED OUT TO SUPPORT ABORTION & "PRESSED THE FLESH" AMONG PROGRESSIVES ON THE PLAZA TODAY!!!
A note from Quinton Lucas:
"Proud to be standing with with women and allies today in KC."
Jolie Justus shared tearful communion today with advocates who want to protect abortions. She noted:
"Today we march. Tomorrow we vote. #WomensRightsAreHumanRights"
Nevertheless and as we think in the grand scheme of things . . .
Whilst some Kansas City politicos lament the rate of homicide on local streets, there remains little progress in saving lives given that many or even most candidates in the upcoming election enthusiastically endorse the murder of the innocent when it's politically expedient for their campaigns.
You decide . . .
