A woman's right to choose is now being threatened, based on the belief system of a majority of justices residing on the SC stating they know best based on the infinite wisdom of god but perhaps a question should be asked of the select few before judgement is passed such as ... Who told you that? "Well, it's the priest who told me that., Well, who told your priest?" Seems like turtles all the way on down does it not?
Existence doesn't care. If earth blows up, existence keeps going on, if the galaxy goes away, existence keeps going on. We see this rings true by seeing the ghosts of galaxies and stars long since gone as their light we see today is billions of years old while the entities themselves have died out many eons ago. With this in mind, a woman's right to choose is a personal right, meaning nothing to existence but to the person in question, it's anything but. This is why Atwood's question is profound and her answer correct.
Nobody likes abortion, even when safe and legal. It’s not what any woman would choose for a happy time on Saturday night. But nobody likes women bleeding to death on the bathroom floor from illegal abortions either. What to do?
A Hubble image and NASA annotation show the location of Earendel and the gravitational lensing that made its detection possible Science: NASA, ESA, Brian Welch (JHU), Dan Coe (STScI); Image processing: NASA, ESA, Alyssa Pagan (STScI)
As NASA announced, a new paper published in Nature reports that Hubble has spotted a star that is a staggering 12.9 billion years old, meaning it existed when the universe was only 7% of its current age. The previous record holder, spotted by Hubble in 2018, was a comparatively young 9 billion years old, shining when the universe was 30% of its current age.
The new star, dubbed Earendel, which means “morning star” in Old English, does not even exist anymore—its light has been traveling to us over the past nearly 13 billion years, long after the star itself has winked out. The late Earendel might not have been detected at all if it weren’t for a trick of physics and optics known as gravitational lensing. Originally posited by Albert Einstein, gravitational lensing occurs when light from a distant object passes around a closer massive object (like a star). The gravity of the intervening object acts like a sort of lens, distorting and magnifying the image of the more distant one.
Man's existence in the grand scheme of things is but a dust mote, signifying nothing but while we exist, the notion of 50% of our species in the US being enslaved while the other 50% remains free is not right so Atwood's question "What kind fo country do you want to live in? is the right one to ask, is it not?
