This piece of shit, along with her compadres, was found guilty earlier this week of violating, inter alia, the federal law protecting access to clinics.

If you're thinking the name sounds familiar, yes, she is in fact the same shitbag who had five fetuses in coolers stashed around her house. As all non-dangerous non-psychopaths are wont to have.

Quote:
In a court filing last month, the Alabama attorney general, Steve Marshall, wrote that he believed his office had a right to prosecute those who help women travel across state lines in search of an abortion. The filing comes in a lawsuit from two women’s health clinics and an abortion fund, which sued Marshall after he publicly stated his intention to criminally investigate organizations like theirs, which provide financial and logistical help to pregnant patients seeking to leave the state. In his response, Marshall unequivocally stated that Alabama, which bans all abortions with no rape or incest exemption, views any effort to help women cross state lines as a “criminal conspiracy”.
And

Quote:
Meanwhile in Texas, two counties and two cities have passed laws banning so-called “abortion trafficking” – that is, the transport or assistance of anyone seeking an abortion – on the roads that pass through their territories. The “trafficking” in this moniker refers to the fetus: “The unborn child is always taken against their will,” Mark Lee Dickson, the architect of these bills, told the Washington Post. Like Texas’s SB 8, the bounty-hunter ban that outlawed abortions in Texas at six weeks before the fall of Roe, these travel bans are also enforced via lawsuits by private citizens – the law is designed to allow those who are displeased by an abortion to sue the friends, feminists and allies of the pregnant patient who helped her to get one.

Dickson and his political partner, the SB 8 architect Jonathan Mitchell, are pushing the provision in border cities and towns along major interstate highways. And like SB 8, the law is less likely to be used by strangers to prevent abortions than by abusers to punish ones that already happened. As an example of the ideal use of his bill, Dickson told the Washington Post that a husband who did not want his wife to get an abortion could use it to sue the friend who offered to drive her – thus somewhat giving away the game that the goal of such a provision is to ensure that men’s private domination and abuse of women is recognized as a right enforceable by civil law.
It’s not just Texas and Bama, all the troglodytes want to get in on this.

Idaho and Missouri have taken similar steps.

I live in Texas and when my wife got pregnant earlier this year, we had a contingency plan to drive to New Mexico in case the fetus was non-viable so she could get an abortion. We also came up with an alibi in case we got pulled over (taking a vacation to my brother's vacation house in New Mexico, which actually exists so I could cite the address immediately). We also had a thick blanket ready so she could drape it over herself and pretend she was sleeping or something so the cop wouldn't notice her belly.

Imagine having to do this in 2023 in a developed country lmao.

Great book, thanks for sharing. The only thing I would add is that some people get abortions to save their lives.

I think my favorite example of what people are really like was the person a while back whose response to concern about forcing a raped child to carry a pregnancy to term was to insist that in the absence of a police report about the rape, there was no evidence there was a rape.

Counterpoint: The concept of "statutory rape" seems pretty applicable to how a ten-year-old gets pregnant.

So, for those who missed it, the Ohio legislature tried to prevent this by making a special one-time-only rule that constitutional amendments needed a 60% majority, and this only won 56:43 or so. But the attempt to make that rule was ALSO overruled by voters.

Huh, given those numbers (30% white evangelicals split 76:24 against, 70% not "white evangelicals" split 29:71 in favor), if the white evangelicals had been 100% anti-abortion on this, it would have been within a fraction of a percent of 50:50.

Holy shit, don't get pregnant in Texas!
So pro-life they'll let ya die rather than abort a fetus.

TheGuardianThe US government cannot enforce federal guidance in Texas requiring emergency room doctors to perform abortions if necessary to stabilize emergency room patients, a federal appeals court ruled on Tuesday, siding with the state in a lawsuit accusing Joe Biden’s administration of overstepping its authority.

CA5 is absolutely the most batshit of the circuits right now. You might mistakenly think they are pro-life, but they're also specifically known for answers like "no, the state isn't allowed to decide not to kill a person just because we now know conclusively that they're innocent of the crime they got the death penalty for".

ThI story is a heartbreaking read, y’all’ve been warned.

Quote:
Joanne Stone, the chair of the ob-gyn department at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai and the former president of the Society for Maternal-Fetal Medicine, said flatly, “If she weren’t pregnant, she likely wouldn’t be dead.” When Yeni was well enough to be moved out of the I.C.U. in Austin, Stone went on, “the discussion would be, ‘Do you want to continue this pregnancy now, knowing that, because you already had the severe-range blood pressure and pulmonary edema, your likelihood of getting really sick is super-high?’ ” In such cases, she explained, “you have a consultation, you have the neonatologists come talk to her, you have the maternal-fetal-medicine specialists come talk to her, and then sometimes the patient needs a day or two to come to a decision. But in the legal landscape of Texas you can’t even start that discussion.”

Arizona's Supreme Court has ruled that abortion is banned with no exceptions for rape, incest or health of the mother.

Incoming from certain anti-choice nitwit to go on about how she can't believe they would force a 12-year-old to carry her father's rape-baby and how any evidence of this occurring is fake despite the fact that that's exactly what writing that law that way would mean and she would concede that 12-year-olds sometimes get raped and that rape can result in pregnancy and that it's possible for 12-year-old girls to get pregnant.

That's not the one I had in mind, but she certainly is running scared.

It's weird how many of the people obsessed with pedophilia conspiracy theories were declaring that the case of the young Ohio girl getting pregnant from rape was made up. Obsessed with pedophilia and think child rape is incredibly widespread and accusing all sorts of people, yet when confronted with an actual case of it they declare it fake and make excuses because their concern is with demonizing people they don't like and not with giving care to actual victims.

the really classy part was demanding that someone produce a police report to prove it was rape.

friend, i don't think we need to argue over whether a pregnant ten-year-old got raped.
