Polls Project Landslide Victory for Abortion Rights in Ireland

The results aren’t expected until late Saturday — but exit polls are projecting a landslide victory for the repeal.

John Kelly, Jane Doe, and Sacred White Womanhood

This past week has proven, yet again, that Republicans’ purported concern for the “sacredness of life” doesn’t actually extend to people of color, immigrants, or poor people. It’s also shown how far some liberal feminists still have to go in understanding just how central patriarchal rhetoric and policies are to U.S. foreign and domestic policy.
