Yeah I keep getting shouted at for going "this is definitely bad, and as a provider of reproductive services it matters more to me than it does to you, but it is not the end of life as we know it because the overwhelming majority of the country disagrees with this decision."

There's a real tedious liberal defeatism that requires beating up anyone who isn't as fully committed to screaming of the utter downfall of humanity at every fucking thing we predicted the Trump administration would do in 20-fucking-16.

Mother Jones is fundraising off of some unnamed lobbyist who told the editor "people are going to feel scared and helpless, you should be a part of the solution" but from all I see? "The solution" is beat the shit out of everyone who tries to look at the situation with clear eyes.
