A roundup of news and commentary from around the interwebs.
Canada’s intrepid pro-life blogger Pat Maloney reveals that the Trudeau government has nothing on record to support revoking the charitable status of crisis pregnancy centres, despite Justin’s promise to do so during the last election.
This very long essay in Vanity Fair is a left-wing reporter’s look at America’s New Right, which is particularly interesting in the context of J.D. Vance’s primary win in Ohio.
The strange death of Japan continues as the country collectively continues to avoid having children:
Japan’s population had its largest drop on record, falling by 644,000 to just over 125.5 million in 2021, reflecting a decline in foreign residents amid tighter border controls over the coronavirus pandemic and the rapidly aging society, government data showed Friday.
If current rates continue, there will come a point when the Japanese simply ceases to exist.
The decision of governors like Florida’s Ron DeSantis are having an effect. According to one massive PR firm which represents Coca Cola, Netflix, Starbucks and other major companies, they are advising their clients to avoid commenting on abortion. It is also notable that Disney has been quiet about the Roe leak.
Abortion is the sacrament of the Sexual Revolution—the failsafe necessary to ensure that an entire civilization can mess around with whoever they like while avoiding the natural consequences of the baby-making act (babies). With the news that Roe may fall, people are now taking to social media to say the quiet part out loud. From Yahoo News:
Some women say they will deny casual sex if they do not have abortion rights after news broke that the Supreme Court is poised to overturn Roe V. Wade.
“In case you’re a man who doesn’t care about roe v wade just know that if abortion gets banned hookup culture will be absolutely decimated,” TikTok user @moneymollusk wrote in a video, which has received more than 1.2 million views in a single day.
“What women would have mediocre sex with a drunk rando if he could potentially father their child,” she continued, noting that the video is directed at “all the pro-life men who love Plan B.”
The clip drew more than 263,000 likes and more than 3,100 comments, with many users agreeing with her assessment.
“Omg I’m entering my celibacy era,” a user commented below — to which the video creator replied that she had the same thought “the second” the news came out.
“We all need to collectively agree to never touch another man again if it gets overturned,” another TikToker commented. Another user declared that they were “deleting all dating apps as we speak.”
This is prompting many lols from pro-lifers, who see this as an unambiguous win. Maybe getting rid of Roe can reverse-engineer some responsible behavior.
