Smashing the Patriarchy With Boom! Lawyered

Rewire News Group Staff

The Boom! Lawyered co-hosts took a hammer to awful anti-choice legislation and quotes.

From the city of Lubbock, Texas, declaring itself a “sanctuary city for the unborn” to an Arkansas law that will require rape victims seeking an abortion to first report the rape to law enforcement, there’s been no shortage of awful anti-choice legislation—and cringeworthy quotes from anti-choice lawmakers.

For Rewire News Group‘s fundraising campaign, we asked YOU to rank all the awful nonsense for our Boom! Lawyered co-hosts Jessica Mason Pieklo and Imani Gandy to smash their way through. Others included:

  • “Rape and incest, I would not be in favor of killing a baby because the baby came about in that way.” —Ben Carson, former Housing and Urban Development secretary and presidential hopeful
  • The Tennessee bill that would grant “fathers” veto power over abortion, with no exception for rape or incest
  • The Supreme Court case Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization
