Whether it's conservatives forcing ten year-old rape victims to bring their pregnancies to terms, or liberals forcing podcasters to stop using the n-word, both sides have a problem with respecting the wishes of others.

Imagine saying you would feel compassion toward a raped child if only liberals yelled less.
If only the pro-choice movement had focused on upholding "safe, legal and rare" instead of advocating for abortion on demand and "shout your abortion" there would have been enough mercy so that a 10 year old didn't have to carry a rapist's baby to term.

Still not sure which is the likelier scenario: -Sinema and Manchin are true nihilists who value an ahistorical mythology of the filibuster over actual lives and democracy. -They are open to negotiation but Schumer is one of the most inept legislative leaders in history.

My alternate timeline would have come true if only you had accepted your loss of bodily autonomy with greater civility.

BUT, the statement we just got from DU Faculty Senate President, Dr. Renée Botta, was spot-on and very welcome. Thanks, @catahooskey, for stepping into a notable void. It’s especially important since our online programs have students from all 50 states!
