So the cries of anguish and anger from the American left goes up.
The leaked opinion from the Supreme Courtroom says there’s a chance the controversial 1973 Roe v. Wade choice legalizing abortion might, the truth is, be overruled. And the offended shriek from all method of left-leaning media is that leftist favourite cry: “My physique my selection.”
Nicely now. Nobody has achieved a greater job of eviscerating that logic of “my physique my selection” than, sure certainly, the self-same left-wing media. Samples? Glad you requested.
Right here is The Washington Publish editorial board on the topic:
The silly GOP grandstanding towards vaccine mandates
Then there was this approving piece from The New York Instances:
F.D.A. Totally Approves Pfizer-BioNTech’s Vaccine, a First for a Covid-19 Shot
The transfer was anticipated to kick off a spherical of recent vaccination mandates from hospitals, colleges and personal firms
The Instances famous the assorted establishments who had been fortunately violating the “my physique my selection” gospel:
WASHINGTON — The Meals and Drug Administration on Monday granted full approval to Pfizer-BioNTech’s coronavirus vaccine for individuals 16 and older, a choice that’s more likely to set off a cascade of vaccine necessities by hospitals, faculties and universities, companies and different organizations.
Inside hours, the Pentagon, CVS, the State College of New York system and the New York Metropolis faculty system, amongst others, introduced that they’d implement mandates they’d ready however made contingent on the F.D.A.’s motion.
New York journal headlined this:
Vaccine Mandates Are for the Public Good
Over there at MSNBC was this:
Biden’s Covid vaccine mandate for staff is his boldest transfer but
Written by MSNBC Opinion columnist Dr. Kavita Patel, the community fortunately stated this:
The plan President Joe Biden introduced Thursday to defeat Covid-19 will possible stand out as one of the crucial important actions of his administration. It’s an outlier in some ways in that it’s the boldest transfer we’ve seen to boost the vaccination fee in the USA, organising a domino impact throughout the nation to broaden mandates in native settings.
Which is to say, MSNBC’s columnist was thrilled that the Biden order will “broaden mandates” throughout the nation.
Over there at CNN, the community’s Chris Cillizza headlined this:
Why Joe Biden ought to go all-in on vaccine mandates
Then there was this Fox Information report on The Washington Publish assist for masks mandates on airways:
WaPo editorial board helps federal no-fly record for passengers who do not obey masks mandates on flight
GOP senators say a nationwide no-fly record would examine masks flouters to terrorists
Say once more, the Washington Publish critically demanded that if a potential airline passenger stands up for “my physique my selection” then they need to the truth is be positioned on a “nationwide no-fly record.”
There’s tons extra examples of this media obsession supporting — make that demanding — mandates for vaccines and masks.
In different phrases? The left-leaning media was on the market weekly if not day by day or hourly for nearly two years fairly successfully convincing hundreds of thousands of Individuals that to say “my physique my selection” was not solely egocentric and morally improper it was a risk to human lives.
And it’s secure to say that message has been acquired.
To not put too tremendous a degree on it, however all these hundreds of thousands of Individuals who oppose abortion name themselves, sure certainly, “pro-life.” Which is strictly what all these liberal media varieties are saying after they demand vaccine and masks mandates. They save lives, we’re advised, and who might be against saving lives?
The irony right here is so thick it will take a series noticed to chop by means of it.
So now somebody contained in the Courtroom — one suspects an outraged liberal clerk however who is aware of — has chosen to leak a draft of Justice Samuel Alito’s opinion that may, with 5 if not six Justices in assist, lastly overrule the Roe doctrine of “my physique my selection.”
But when that’s the truth is what occurs, the lefty media should shoulder its share of accountability for the overturning of Roe v. Wade.
It’s the lefty media — The New York Instances, The Washington Publish, New York Journal, MSNBC, CNN and extra — that has spent the final two years drilling into the heads of Individuals that they don’t have any proper to say “my physique my selection” on the subject of mandates for vaccines and masks. And that, the truth is, for Individuals to insist on “my physique my selection” is an outrageous breach of each the general public well being and easy primary consideration for the lives of their fellow Individuals.
No matter else this leak out of the Supreme Courtroom exhibits, it’s unintentional proof that the doctrine of “my physique my selection” has been critically broken.
Broken by the left-leaning media and its supporters.
Ya can’t make it up.
