More Screeching Hyperbole from Sen. Scott Wiener About SCOTUS Abortion Decision

Senator claims gay marriage and sodomy are in jeopardy

By Katy Grimes, June 25, 2022 5:21 pm

As the Globe reported, the United Sates Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade Friday, allowing the states to make their own abortion laws.

Despite California already being an abortion sanctuary, state lawmakers issued statements full of hyperbole and deceit.

Unhappy about the decision, Sen. Scott Wiener, who is a lawyer, and openly gay, was hyperbolic: “Tens of millions have now lost their right to make decisions about their own bodies and their own futures.”

Seizing the moment for more melodramatic hysteria, Sen. Wiener sent out an email Saturday, again lying about what the Supreme Court actually did:

“Yesterday, the conservative Supreme Court finally showed its true colors in taking away the constitutional right to a safe abortion. And though it was a dark day for our country, I was so proud to see our community show up and declare that we will not stand by and let right-wingers control the decisions women make about their bodies.”

Wiener’s statement is patently false. He is an attorney, and knows he is being grossly dishonest.

Justice Samuel Alito wrote the opinion, and noted, “The Constitution makes no reference to abortion, and no such right is implicitly protected by any constitutional provision, including the one on which the defenders of Roe and Casey now chiefly rely—the Due Process Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment.”

And as the Globe noted, Roe v. Wade was not a Constitutional right, and Congress never codified the decision in law.

Wiener continued, with even more falsehoods:“The Dobbs decision also made it clear that the Court won’t stop at abortion. They’re coming for marriage equality and contraception. (Emphasis his). They’re going to reinstate anti-sodomy laws. This is a battle for the soul of our nation and whether we’ll remain a place where people get to be who we are and make decisions about our lives.”

So, the Supreme Court is coming for your birth control pills? Gay marriage is in jeopardy? And now they’re going to reinstate anti-sodomy laws? Really?

Is this a fundraising letter? We know House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was sending out fundraising letters almost immediately after the Supreme Court decision was released.

Wiener continues:“That’s why we need to make this year’s Pride the biggest and best one yet. We need to stand up and show the world what our incredible LGBTQ community is all about!  Will you be marching with me and my team in the parade this Sunday?

Politicians blatantly lie when they know their argument is weak. And this one is a doozy.

  1. The crap this guy comes up with should make all Californians ashamed, how he stays in this position is unbelievable. I think the elections have been being cheated in California for a long time unfortunately.

  2. It never ceases to amaze me how an insignificant little bug such as Sen Scott Wiener with his ridiculous Julius Caesar haircut is able to wreak so much unsavory havoc in the State of California. I think you hit the nail on the head (again), Katy Grimes. All Wiener is doing is joining the chorus of Dem shrieks and wailing in a fundraising effort. Just LISTEN to what they are screaming so self-righteously about! Wow.
    But what does Wiener care how ugly the bleating gets, or how cynical he looks when he obviously knows better? He has no dignity, no shame, no reasonableness, no sense of fair play, no love of country or our Constitution; he is just happy it’s June and “Pride Month” when destruction of civilization is the name of the game.
    Isn’t it interesting that LGBTQ+ “Pride” and “abortion” have found themselves together on the same protest stage in the last two days? That’s because both of these items are not about what they say they are about — that is, “rights” — but are really about a radical undermining of our country at its core. Sen Scott Wiener is all in for that, because it is the only way an insect like him can achieve a position of power.

    1. Anyone with said “Julius Ceasar” haircut is NOT to be trusted, and yes, this means YOU, Scott (show me your) Wiener and YOU too, Mark Zuckerberg…

  3. All of Wiener’s hyperbole and fear mongering, that is also being repeated by Democrats in Congress, is meant to influence the midterm elections. They want to make abortion an issue for their key demographic as they see it – the suburban “soccer mom”. This demographic turned in their favor during the last presidential election. However, is abortion a key issue for this group or are there more important ones – such as the price of gas and food? I don’t think that Wiener’s hyperbole will work in this respect. Imo, it will only motivate the radical activist groups; so I would expect a summer of confrontation and possible violence; perhaps a unification of Antifa, BLM and other leftist groups.

  4. in one mouth they say a “right was taken away”, yet Democrats say “come to CA and get your abortion”
    seems contradictory.

    What happened was that Federal Government returned what it should have the states decide this. We are United states not Federal states of America. This country is based on states making their own laws.

  5. Weiner is an unstable, mentally ill man! We need a clause to have people like him removed from office immediately.

  6. How many like minded legislatures are there in SacTown? Are the majority of legislatures members of the LBGQT community?
    The pro life folks need to continue their message to persuade the voters to say no to the constitutional amendment this November.
    I agree with Raymond, this is a fund raising issue.

  7. “Tens of millions have now lost their right to make decisions about their own bodies and their own futures.”

    So how does this statement reconcile with Weiner, Wicks, Pan and Low’s push to FORCE PEOPLE to take Experimental Use Authorization injections that have shown to have a greater risk to more people than the actual virus itself, most of which manifests itself as a nasty flu for the majority of people who do NOT have underlying co-morbidities ???
