It’s been an intense life-and-death week in America: Four teenagers are killed in a school shooting, the Supreme Court debates abortion, a new COVID strain arrives – and none of the arguments over any of it make political or constitutional or public health sense.

If you think the Constitution gives you the right to control your own body, why oppose vaccine mandates but require people to bear children?

Wade, the 1973 decision establishing the right to abortion?

Contacted every six months for five years after an abortion, over 95% of women said it was the right decision – including those who found the initial decision difficult.

Maybe if religious figures preached gun control, the odds would improve.

That’s the same Amy Coney Barrett who suggested Wednesday that abortion is unnecessary because women can give up their babies for adoption.

Wade pointed out, it is wrenching to give up a baby (more so than having an abortion, research has found) and there are health risks to pregnancy itself, especially in Mississippi and especially for minorities. Beyond that, limiting or outlawing abortions doesn’t reduce them, it just makes them less safe. .

In an ideal world, it would endure.

In the real world, a high court majority is likely to hand abortion regulation power to the states – and women living in some of them won’t be free to control their own bodies, look out for their own health, or act on their own religious and moral beliefs.

In an ideal world, the Michigan massacre never would have happened, and Congress would have long ago passed a major bill doing everything possible to prevent such tragedies. In the real world, the best we can hope for is accountability.

Finally, in an ideal world, the political theatrics, misinformation and lying about vaccines and public health precautions would stop, and Americans would do what President Joe Biden suggested Thursday: in the face of the omicron variant, finally unite to fight COVID
