Google Searches for 'Move to Canada' Skyrocket after SCOTUS Abortion Ruling
Left continues to implode after Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade
As the Left continues to implode over the Supreme Court overturning Roe v. Wade, Google searches for "how to move to Canada" are skyrocketing.
Abortion advocates appear to believe their leftist views will be welcomed in totalitarian Canada.
On Friday, the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade.
The move removes the "constitutional" protection for abortion rights and returns the decision on laws to individual states.
Despite the move giving people more say in their local abortion laws, the move caused thousands of pro-abortion advocates to take to the streets and voice their anger with the decision.
For some, however, this wasn't enough and many considered other avenues to show their disapproval of the Roe reversal.
It appears that many pro-abortion advocates are planning to teach the SCOTUS a lesson by leaving he country.
Google searches for “how to move to Canada from U.S.” spiked 850% in the hour following the high court’s decision, according to a report from Axios that cited Google Trends data.
People searching “how to become a Canadian citizen” also jumped 550% during the same time period.
Following the Supreme Court’s 6-3 decision to uphold a 2018 Mississippi abortion ban, with five of the justices also deciding to overturn Roe, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau called the ruling “a devastating setback.”
"My heart goes out to the millions of American women who are now set to lose their legal right to an abortion,” he tweeted.
"I can’t imagine the fear and anger you are feeling right now.
"No government, politician, or man should tell a woman what she can and cannot do with her body.”
The Canadian leader also told reporters at a summit in Rwanda that he was thinking of women specifically in the U.S. affected by the end of Roe.
"Today I think of those generations of women around the world and specifically in the United States who fought so hard to gain rights … and are facing this devastating setback.”
Canada holds some of the most radical abortion-friendly laws in the world.
The country has no federal restrictions on abortions, and women can abort their unborn child at any stage of the pregnancy.
Abortions in the country are also publicly funded.
Moving to Canada has been a popular consideration for many on the Left when U.S. politics don’t go their way.
The new Google search trend echoes similar sentiments by Left-leaning celebrities leading up to and following the election of President Donald Trump in November 2016.
Celebrities like Chelsea Handler, Lena Dunham, Stephen King, Barbara Streisand, and others all suggested they would move to America’s northern neighbor if Trump won the election.
However, none of them followed through on their commitments.
