  1. We can predict a surge of toothless(or teethless) Bamma inbreds hicks applying in the near future for disabilities..🤔Hmmm

  2. 😆🤣comey & brennan pointing finger at each other on who release dossier 😆😆😆😆😆

  3. This, again, is due to a failure in the education system. People don't understand how reproduction works. People legitimately think that a zygote is a thinking feeling person… I can't believe this is 2019. This is a basic civil rights issue. Georgia has already passed a very similar bill, if Alabama does it too then other states will follow.

    P.S. Gillibrand seems good.

  4. So lets jail some male lawmakers for life or death penalty for jerking off and so wasting millions of precious lifes. (I recommend in killing some people. You cant let that go, its way beyond anything imaginable.)

  5. who did Mack name.??? Canada needs documented proof that Trudeau is involved in NXIVM the politicians won't listen to the hundreds of people on YT that provide proof that he is directly connected to it. Someone needs to leak documents that directly implicate him.

  6. Gillibrand needs to get at least one percent of Democratic support in at least one poll. Let's see what she does in the debates.

  7. All I know, is that I knew to many women that used it as birth control. My sister had 6 …..yes 6 abortions, some in the 5th month. I told her they RIP THAT BABY OUT PIECE BY PIECE…DO THEY CARE? NO, THEY DONT!!!

  8. If people were being apathetic about voting before, I bet they're waking up now. This is not a game, they want to control every aspect of our health and our lives. Vote for your liberty or submit to tyranny!! #voteblue

  9. Here's why the libs are freaked…..
    https://news.bloomberglaw.com/us-law-week/supreme-court-overturns-precedent-in-two-state-dispute-4

    A divided U.S. Supreme Court jettisoned a 40-year-old ruling May 13, raising concerns about the future of other long-standing precedents.
    The “decision can only cause one to wonder which cases the Court will overrule next,” Justice Stephen Breyer wrote in dissent.
    The case here involved a decades-old ruling allowing states to be hauled into the courts of other states.
    But the reasoning of the decision could reverberate well beyond the reach of state courts to include the viability of the court’s abortion protections and the authority of administrative agencies.
    A decision overturning court protections for abortion and other controversial conservative targets was feared by liberal court watchers when conservatives fortified their majority with Justice Brett Kavanaugh.
    The ruling split the justices along ideological lines, with the court’s conservatives voting to overrule the precedent.
    “The division between the five-justice conservative majority and four-justice liberal dissent can be seen as a potential preview of the role of stare decisis as to other constitutional precedents,” said Tim Droske, of Dorsey & Whitney’s appellate group.
    Justice Clarence Thomas’s “summary of the majority’s justification for its holding could readily be adapted by the conservative majority to other precedents,” Droske said.

    Thomas wrote that the court’s earlier ruling was “irreconcilable with our constitutional structure,” and that stare decisis—the legal doctrine that courts should generally stand by earlier rulings even if they disagree with them— is “not an inexorable command.”

  10. If someone moves into your house without your permission, you have to let them stay. You don't like it?? That's too bad…they have rights. You have no "choice" in the matter. Ain't that right, "pro lifers?"

  11. The fact that they won't allow abortion in the case of incest, tells you all you need to know about these people. (faint echo of a banjo playing in the distance).😉

  12. What happened to the so-called "pro-child" Democrats, who were foaming at the mouths over illegal immigrant children being separated from their families, and the alleged harsh treatment they received in the detention centers? Aren't babies in the womb even more vulnerable than those children? Liberals, your hypocrisy is showing, AGAIN!

  13. The supreme court will take a dump on this bill , let the Alabama republicans lawmakers do what they do best : nothing.

  14. The GOP use abortion to rile up their single-issue voter base, oppress women, and add poor kids to made fodder for their war machine. Kick 'em out.

  15. The draconian bill is a direct assault on women's rights, and rights in general. Forced birth is immoral, illegal, undemocratic, and unconstitutional.

    All persons have an unassailable right to personal autonomy, which includes the absolute right to determine what happens to their own bodies and lives. That logically entails that abortion must be legal. (And "persons" here is crucial, because a zygote, embryo, or fetus is not a person so it does not posses any rights as a matter of logic, but a woman is and thus does).

  16. OMG, the latest drama to overtake the Democratic party is the Alabama abortion bill. The newest distraction from the fact that the world is about to be burnt to a cinder. Priorities?! Thanks Gillibrand for contributing to the rolling outrage brownout. I don't mean to minimize the endless abortion debate, but if we only have 12 years before the point of no return on the climate, shouldn't we be a little more concerned about that instead of being distracted by every other injustice?

    Yes, we can walk and chew gum at the same time. But we can do neither if the world is literally burning around us. Again, priorities?!

  17. I can’t believe this is even happening. It’s not like abortion is being used as birth control. Don’t know why Bible thumpers – not to be confused with disciples – take such issue with early term abortion. Have they not read Deuteronomy 21:18-21?? … The surest way to get a rebellious child is to bring one unwanted into this world. That’s why crime decreased within a few years of roe vs. wade passing. The right to life apparently ends at birth for them. Protect the fetus but hurting living children is okay if you can blame the parents. Remember the separation at the border? Republicans are trying to increase the poverty level cutoff, cut funding for school lunches, food stamps, education, healthcare, and well…. anything that helps young mothers and children. What strikes me is how when you see the courtrooms doing this it’s a bunch of old white guys and a few old white women with goodness knows what issues who have forgotten the mistakes THEY made when they were young.

  18. I remember seeing Chuck Schumer all over TV in 2016 saying their strategy was to win moderate Republican votes. How did that work out?

  19. How do things like this happen?.. and how do these people get elected?
    For such a FREE market society we live in and with a FREEDOM based constitution.. how does this happen?!

  20. The majority of women in alabama must want this. This hasn't happened overnight. They could have voted out all these men in the last few years when this bill was being formulated. Women are going to have to die through botched backstreet abortions for these mad people to change their minds.

  21. I know gilibrand needs to sell herself but she seems to be exaggerating her achievements. She gives the impression she passed those bills she is talking about all by herself. I may be wrong but I don't think it comes down to one person.

  22. Trump like a mob boss does not directly ask for things that he wants because that would mean he is responsible. But he is always dropping huge hints and then gives big thanks when his wishes are carried out. It's called plausible deniability.

  23. Republicans cannot claim they are for freedom AND against abortion. Republicans are the anti freedom party. They don't understand that in a State of Law the only thing that should be weighted against rights are other rights not opinions or beliefs.

  24. You all do not respect the rights of the unborn – Roe vs Wade was wrong to begin with, and Alabama has it right; it is a womans body – and she made the choice when she allowed herself to become pregnant, it's about personal responsibility – something woefully lacking in modern feminist…..Kirsten Gillibrand is simply a liberal feminist mouthpiece.

  25. So Alabama, one of the "poorest" states in the US wants more children, Black/Brown/White, to go hungry, to be uneducated, to have bad health & to keep the cycle going on & on & on…. And stop with the "I prayed on it", using "God" as a pawn to pass a evil law. There has NEVER been a law proposed that a woman can "have" an abortion at 6, 7, 8 or 9 months just because she has changed her mind, so why do most of the Pro-Life aka Pro-Birth folks who protest out in public or on TV try to push that narrative.

  26. The Alabama State Senate who overwhelmingly voted for this bill to pass we’re white men over the age of 50. This is an attack on women. It’s time we stand together and let our voices be heard

  27. All Gillibrand could talk about is "muh womens rights" She will NEVER be president. She is worse than Hillary.

  28. Are you doing anything to convince the Alabama governor to think about this? Senator Gillibrand doesn't answer directly, but instead gives a minute long speech on her stance. She didn't want to answer so she averted the question in typical politician fashion. Don't get me wrong I support what she is saying, it's just the way politicians try to avoid giving a straight answer with political rhetorical tactics. To me it seems rather disingenuous at best, also it seems almost all politicians use this tactic when faced with similar situations.

  29. Msnbc a bunch of liars. GEORGIA PASSED THIS BILL NOT TRUMP. Why would Trump be blamed for this? Nicole a deceitful hateful person. Even lied about infanticide

  30. If this were 100 years ago, the current Alabama governor wouldn't be able to vote.
    Women are restricting other women from making choices. This lady needs to stand up for her own gender and remember where she could have been.

  31. Can’t stand this dumb c*** after she lead the opposition to oust Al Franken just to try and make a name for herself. I’ll be happy when she looses

  32. In 100 years abortion will be looked back on like we look back on slavery now. A moral stain on our countries history.

  33. Back to back street abortions which will most likely result in deaths. When will they start telling men what they can and can’t do with their body? Oh that’s right, never.

  34. Hi Steph🐞.👋.
    Exceptional reporting, Steph.👍☺👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏.
    Keep on digging, Steph.👍.
    👉👉Patience democrats, patience.👍.
    Hi Kirsten.👋.
    Exceptional job, Kirsten.👍☺👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏.
    👉👉Proceed Kirsten. Get back to work, Kirsten.👍.

  35. I'm pro choice except for women that abuse abortion for birth control purposes. You spread your legs willingly, you keep the baby. It's that simple. Rapes, incest, 1 time mistakes are exceptions.

  36. These soulless corporate 1% puppets will do anything for the ignorant. Well at least until they dismantle our democracy. Then they will no longer need to satisfy the peasants. The 1% doesn't care about abortion, if their little princess needs an abortion they will fly her off to a Grand European Vacation! While you and your babies die in the dirt.

    Make America White Again, I mean GREAT!

  37. If my neighbor lost his job and home I would let him stay in my house for 9 months. What kind of woman would elect to abort a fetus rather that carry it 9 months to give it life and then put it up for adoption? It's a crue; human being that could be so selfish.

  38. Christian gillibrand didn't say s***. Ask her what she was going to do she ain't going to do nothing she just said it well this and that but she didn't say what she's going to do she has no plan

  39. Abortion IS MUDER,,, and that's a fact, maybe now people will remember what their genitals ARE actually made for.

  40. I wish that the left would quit claiming that they speak for "American women". They don't. Many of women have been sickened by late-term abortion, not to mention open borders, disregard for the law, attacks on Christianity and morality, Socialism, and the destruction of America and its history.

  41. She’s insane. Close your legs. Actions have consequences. Abortion has nothing to do with women’s health.

  42. https://www.change.org/p/u-s-house-of-representatives-how-does-banning-abortion-rights-while-keeping-gun-control-laws-sensible-this-is-not-ok?cs_tk=AqInwa_TMz9UOdoV5lwAAXicyyvNyQEABF8BvA6rYiNwBI4R8R_RjErZZZQ%3D&utm_campaign=4d2c8fa27f87467c9fa727b5bf20434c&utm_medium=email&utm_source=petition_signer_receipt&utm_term=cs

  43. By BL – the usual insanity by the Liberal leftist women blaming President Trump instead of themselves. Who think birth control is abortion. Sanger and eugenics.

  44. Yeah, with all of the critical issues facing the country and our national security, killing our own born and unborn is certainly top priority.

  45. That's great! Abortion and transgenders are attacks on women's freedom. This Gillobrand women. How Does someone like that get elected? And why does she say building a wall to protect our neighbourhoods from invasion by foreign nationals is racist? When they are not vetted and no nothing about being an American and cheat the ones that did it the right way. I wouldn't vote for her for garbage collector, unless she were the garbage

  46. Give it a rest already Jellybean. If you hit it out of the park so well in elections why are you at 1%? Oh right. You actually have competition for the DNC nod. Something you DIDN’T have in your last senate run. A well funded well organized GOP challenger would be able to take you out of the race faster than you can say 72 percent.
