Since the death of George Floyd on May 25, the New York Police Department has had to repair hundreds of cars from damage inflicted by rioters across the city — 14 of the cars were set on fire and totaled.

With 14 totaled, seven are still being repaired, and the remaining cars have already been serviced and returned to the department. The repairs cost New York City taxpayers nearly $1 million.

Despite the violence towards police excallating, the NYC Comptroller urged Mayor Bill de Blasio To Cut Over $1B In NYPD Funding.

“Shootings were up 130% in the city for the month of June, according to the NYPD,” as reported by the Daily Caller.

The weeks of rioting have resulted in hundreds of cars being vandalized, burned, and smashed. The real losers in the situation seem to be the New York taxpayers.

Pro-Abortion Protesters Allegedly Take Abortion Pills Outside Supreme Court

Abortion Pills

In order to protest Mississippi’s ban on most abortions after 15 weeks of pregnancy, pro-abortion protestors allegedly took abortion pills – which are used to end pregnancies within the first 10 weeks – outside of the Supreme Court on Wednesday.

As reported by Fox News, “At least four women were seen taking pills as others cheered. The group Shout Your Abortion did not immediately respond to Fox News’ request for comment on the video and protest.”

“Abortion pills forever,” the protesters repeatedly chanted in a view posted on Twitter by feminist activist Erin Matson Wednesday morning.

“Epic action from @ShoutYrAbortion — people took abortion pills outside the Supreme Court!” Matson captioned the video.

 

On Wednesday, protesters gathered outside the Supreme Court as the Justices prepared to sit for oral arguments in a case that could potentially overturn Roe v. Wade.
The case, Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, is over a 2018 law in Mississippi that bans most abortions after 15 weeks of pregnancy.

The 1973 decision Roe v. Wade and the 1992 decision Planned Parenthood v. Casey forced states to allow women to get an abortion until the point of viability, which is considered to be around 20 to 24 weeks of pregnancy.

Mississippi originally said in its petition to the Court that the case does not require them to overturn Roe v. Wade or Planned Parenthood v. Casey. In July, however, Mississippi shifted its position, writing, “Roe and Casey are egregiously wrong” and said the Court should overrule those decisions.
