Anti-Trump soccer star Megan Rapinoe and a gaggle of other female athletes are now speaking out and demanding that the Supreme Court strike down a Mississippi law which protects unborn life.

As The Daily Wire reports:

On Monday, over 500 women — including U.S. women’s soccer player Megan Rapinoe and hundreds of professional athletes,  Olympians, and college athletes — called on the Supreme Court to strike down a Mississippi law that would ban abortions after 15 weeks in most circumstances. Their actions come as the Supreme Court set a December date to hear the case.

“[We] believe that, like themselves, the next generation of women athletes must be guaranteed bodily integrity and decisional autonomy in order to fully and equally participate in sports,” the women wrote in an amicus brief.

Rapinoe — who has placed herself in the middle of many political issues over the past several years — weighed in.

“I am honored to stand with the hundreds of athletes who have signed onto this Supreme Court brief to help champion not only our constitutional rights, but also those of future generations of athletes,” Rapinoe said in a statement

It seems that there is almost no political issue Rapinoe is not willing to put herself in the middle of.

Hey Ladies, If you have sufficient intelligence for decisional autonomy, How about using it to buy birth control pills. Very clever how you never address that elephant in the room. We all know there can be exceptions , but your demand for wholesale abortion
is appalling.

Well, at least we know Megan Rapinoe’s screed is not self serving. There doesn’t seem to be a possibility of her getting pregnant. And even if she decided to cross the line I doubt there would be any takers.
