After abortion ruling, media pundits, Hollywood figures declare ‘guns have more rights than women’

By striking down the federally protected right to an abortion in its opinion on Dobbs v. 杰克逊妇女健康组织, the Supreme Court returned power to individual states to decide their own laws surrounding abortion. While several red states had trigger laws on the books to restrict abortion further, blue states have also worked to expand abortion rights.

But numerous figures on the left behaved as if abortion was banned everywhere in the United States, resorting to the same rhetorical hyperbole to justify their anger: Guns nowhave more rights than women.

Reacting to the ruling on MSNBC, New York Times columnist Michelle Goldberg feared that America had reached acrisis pointunder the “基督教民族主义者” 最高法院, who would impose theirminority rule.She also tied her view the court was run by extremists to gun rights.

I think there’s such an irony about how, as many people have said, you’re safer as a gun in this country… guns in this country have more rights than women at this point,” 她声称.

“交叉连接” host Tiffany Cross declared on her Saturday MSNBC show, “An AR-15 has more rights than a woman does.

Frequent MSNBC guest andThe Nationjustice correspondent Elie Mystal agreed, also stating on the network that women and minorities had fewer rights than anUzisubmachine gun in America.

Comedians got the message, 太. In a somber monologue Monday, 哥伦比亚广播公司 “Late Late Showhost James Corden expressed hisdisgust and angerat the Supreme Court imposing itsminority viewon the country and moving Americaback to a dark age.

He claimed that by turning abortion rights back to the states, the court had putmillions upon millions of women and their familieslives in danger. Corden also linked conservative Second Amendment supporters to Roe.

If only the American leaders on the right would care and fight as much for the rights of women as they do their guns,” he lamented.

The same theme was heard on ABC’s late-night comedy show, “吉米·金梅尔Live!” 星期一晚上. Guest host Chelsea Handler opened by taking political jabs at the GOP. She quipped that she would be hosting Kimmel’s showuntil Republicans make it illegal for women to talk.


Handler also crudely remarked, “At this point I’d probably have more rights if my vagina was an AR-15.

Some liberal media pundits took to social media to express their fury.

前任的 “Daily Showhost turned woke Apple TV+ show host Jon Stewart offered a crass retort to the ruling while also mocking gun rights supporters.

Actresses Taraji P. Henson and Halle Berry, as well as reality star and activist Kim Kardashian, repeated the mantra thatguns have more rights than womenwhile professional athlete association unions such as the WNBA’s made identical statements in condemning the ruling.

Some Democrats weighed in with similar talking points.


前任的 2016 presidential candidate 希拉里·克林顿 suggested it washarder to obtain an abortionthan a gun in this country, in a tweet that was widely mocked by the right.

After the ruling, New York Attorney General Letitia James said in a MSNBC interview, “It’s really unfortunate that gun owners have more rights than women.

But pro-life and Second Amendment advocates say this slogan is just inaccurate.

Catherine Glenn Foster, president and CEO of the pro-life law firm and advocacy group Americans United for Life, bluntly unraveled the left-wing phrase in a statement to Fox News Digital.

People have rights. Women and men have rights. Guns do not have rights,” Foster began her rebuttal.

With Roe’s reversal, every girl now has the right to be born in states that uphold the first and most fundamental of all human rights. While I can say with tongue in cheek that I don’t expect that every one of those girls now born will choose to become proficient with firearms, I am truly glad that we’re talking about the full scope of constitutional rights of women,” 她说.

Another critic of this particular media talking point is firearms journalist Stephen Gutowski, founder of The Reload.

与 Fox News Digital 交谈, Gutowski said the media frames abortion as a fundamental “对” while they don’t give that credence to gun owners, even though there is a constitutional right to bear arms.


Coverage around abortion is almost always centered on the idea that having an abortion is a right… Not only does most coverage not assume gun ownership or carry is a right, it often isn’t even mentioned as something many Americans believe,” 他说.

A new Gallup poll conducted shortly after the school shooting in Uvalde, 德州, found a majority of voters said that gun policies wereextremely importantin influencing their vote in the midterm elections. 然而, 只要 8% of respondents cited guns as the most important issue facing the country.

Abortion appears to be much less of a priority to voters. In a USA Today poll published Friday, three out of four respondents said that if Roe was overturned, it would not affect their November vote, 虽然 19% said it would motivate them more to turn out to the polls.

Red Renegade Public Relations CEO Vanessa Santos told Fox News Digital that it wasn’t avery effective strategyfor the left to conflate the two highly sensitive and polarizing issues.

They’re just trying to combine two of their favorite wedge issues and while maybe their base will just nod along, they’re not going to persuade anybody else with that messaging. The smart conservative response would be to say what most Americans, especially parents, intuitively believe: that we need to protect children at all stages of life. The recent school shootings are tragic and horrifying and of course we need to make sure kids are safe at school, but we also need to make sure the unborn have a chance to get to school in the first place,” 她说.
