The decision by Alabama lawmakers and the governor to outlaw almost all abortions is triggering abortion advocates.

And they’re showing how important they think their opinion is by PUTTING IT IN ALL-CAPS.

And repeating it.


The messages on Twitter can be much more emphatic now, since the company doubled the character limit from 140 to 280.

Some apparently think that’s a minimum.

The Alabama law makes performing an abortion a felony. It was adopted specifically to create a challenge to the 1973 Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision that created the right to abortion.

Twitter news aggregator Twitchy noted, “Alabama may have finally broken the ACLU. And Georgia. And Kentucky. And Ohio.

“When they say ‘all’ do they mean men too?”

The ACLU’s all-caps tweet was mimicked by many Twitter users:

Jon Lacey, responding to the ACLU’s message, summed up the sentiment: “If you’d only pasted it 10 times I’d have wondered if you were serious. But 11? On board.”

But Christopher Doehling perhaps had a more applicable conclusion: “It if sounds awful once, repeat until desensitized.”
