Obama urges promotion of ‘reproductive rights’ for the sake of ‘future generations’
Former President Barack Obama tweeted on Sunday that people need to advance “reproductive rights” for the sake of modern-day families and future generations.
“On what would have been the 50th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, we’re reminded that progress can move backward. And that means we’ve got to recommit to doing our part to protect and expand reproductive rights for families today — and for generations to come,” Obama tweeted on Sunday.
Delano Squires responded to Obama’s post by tweeting, “Abortion absolutists who talk about protecting families and future generations are heavy on hubris and light on self-awareness.”

“Where in ‘for generations to come’ does killing unborn babies fit ?” Dan Dakich tweeted.
Last year, the U.S. Supreme Court returned to the states the full authority to determine how to handle the issue of abortion.
“The Constitution does not prohibit the citizens of each State from regulating or prohibiting abortion,” the Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization opinion in states. “Roe and Casey arrogated that authority. We now overrule those decisions and return that authority to the people and their elected representatives.”
A draft opinion leaked before the high court issued its official opinion last year, but the Supreme Court marshal’s report on the leak investigation noted that no perpetrator has been identified.
“At this time, based on a preponderance of the evidence standard, it is not possible to determine the identity of any individual who may have disclosed the document or how the draft opinion ended up with Politico,” the report stated. “While investigators and the Court’s IT experts cannot absolutely rule out a hack, the evidence to date reveals no suggestion of improper outside access. Investigators also cannot eliminate the possibility that the draft opinion was inadvertently or negligently disclosed – for example, by being left in a public space either inside or outside the building.”
