Ohio girl, 10, among patients going to Indiana to get abortion

Ten years old, pregnant, and using the correct pronouns. GOP trifecta.

Time for some interstate travel bans.

Our "Torches & Pitchforks" book club is thinking about doing the Supreme Court as the overall topic next year (2022 is banned books year). I already mentioned "Originalism as faith" as a possible book to read, because I want to read it now.

Any other recommendations?

Haha, isn't it funny to have a bloody coat hanger as a profile pic. Like the kind that might've been used on a preteen rape victim back in the day!

Seems like you just came back to do this and post vaguely homophobic shit.

I think A People's History of the Supreme Court is good. I got it years ago and read a chunk of it, but it has been quite a long time since I picked it up.

Given the vacated precepts of privacy and due process, how soon will extramarital sex become illegal, and will Onanism become a felony or a misdemeanor?

The wingnut narrative that this probably didn't really happen is, to put it charitably, falling apart. This could go in the "media blows dead bears" thread too, since the reporter who wrote the story advises that she was the only reporter in the courtroom for the arraignment. To be fair, I'm sure the rest of the liberal (:lol:) MSM were involved in a vitally important Cletus Safari at a diner down the street, asking pasty old racists for their views on gasoline prices.

A one-source story about a 10-year-old and an abortion goes viral - The Washington Post

Here Washington postís fact check analysis cautions that the story might not be true.

It includes this

Quote:
An abortion by a 10-year-old is pretty rare. The Columbus Dispatch reported that in 2020, 52 people under the age of 15 received an abortion in Ohio.
As a reason to doubt, something that happens every single week isnít rare.

I generally like WaPo, but I didnít care for the fact-check, also they have published a story that referenced the arrest but they havenít updated the fact-check.

I suspect one of the reasons Bezos doesn't get involved in Twitter fucknuttery as often as Space Karen is the fact that ol' Jeff owns the Post and can use that bastion of the liberal (:lol:) MSM to advance fascism without ever opening his goddamn mouth.

We know:
Some children get raped
Girls can get pregnant during puberty
Some girls enter puberty very young

So we know it's possible for ten-year-old girls to get impregnated, and indeed there are documented cases of it.

We also know:
Ohio's law makes no exception for rape
While pregnancy for young girls would be called a "high risk" pregnancy, it isn't necessarily life-threatening

Therefore, a doctor would be taking a big risk to be criminally charged to perform it in Ohio (a risk some doctors would take, if traveling to Indiana and avoiding that risk hadn't been feasible).

So that this would happen in Ohio is not surprising at all.

Ok, so the timing is "convenient", except that Ohio is not the only state with laws like these. So the chances that at least ONE fucked up "forced birth for raped children" state would have a case like this are significantly higher.

Which is all to say, there was not much reason to doubt this story. And certainly any discussion of how it's not all confirmed should note that there's nothing implausible about a case like this happening! The timing of an event that happens regularly (at the national level) being bad for Republicans isn't evidence of a lie.

And hell, if it had been reported that such a case occurred in Washington State, and the child didn't need to travel out of state, who cares?! The law in Ohio would be the same and it would be valid for journalists to report it and for Democrats to bring it up as an example of an abortion that GOP laws ban.

Yeah it just hits a little harder when it actually happens, because too many dumbfucks can't understand a hypothetical. So they'd think, well that's horrible and all, but it's not like children can get raped in red states! Like, you know, dumbfucks.

So that "deeply rooted in this nation's history and traditions" bit is how they're going to embed Christianity in the legal system, right?

Wednesday was a banner day in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit. In Sistersong Women of Color Reproductive Justice Collective v. Georgia, the court upheld a Georgia law amending the statutory definition of "natural person" to "an unborn child" and prohibiting abortions after a fetal heartbeat is detected. The opinion's author is Judge William Pryor, who once described Roe as "worst abomination in the history of constitutional law" and was considered a frontrunner for the SCOTUS seat that opened up when Scalia ate it (that seat ended up going to Gorsuch). Pryor referred to the plaintiffs challenging the law as "abortionists" an impressive 21 times in the opinion.

In Otto v. City of Boca Raton, the court refused to grant a rehearing en banc of its 2020 ruling that city and county ordinances prohibiting licensed counselors from treating minors via "any counseling, practice or treatment performed with the goal of changing an individual's sexual orientation or gender identity, including, but not limited to, efforts to change behaviors, gender identity, or gender expression, or to eliminate or reduce sexual or romantic attractions or feelings toward individuals of the same gender or sex." The ordinances violate the First Amendment free speech rights of therapists, ya see.

In jurisdictions where the state supreme court is populated by bought-and-paid-for insurance industry hacks, plaintiffs personal injury lawyers generally try to avoid their state's high court. If that means not appealing adverse rulings in trial courts or intermediate appellate courts, so be it. Civil rights advocates are in that position now re: SCOTUS. That being the case, I reckon we can use this here thread as a garbage dump for lower federal court rulings as well as SCOTUS stuff.
