Default Re: Roe v Wade: Pretty cool while it lasted

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.

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.

Forcing a 10-year-old to carry a fetus to term is fucking disgusting.
