    • I agree with Les - literally everything she said - but it doesn't change the fact that we aren't arguing about "when" should we allow abortion, but "whether". All of this is a side argument.

      Yes, a vital one, but when discussing the very existence of a thing, don't get mired in the details of the ways to support the thing.

          -access to birth control is actively being reduced. It is costly. If woman has insurance, the insurance can opt out of covering it.
          -lack of facilities and Providers to provide care (many have to travel greater than an hour) for GYN, OB, Pedi care
          -no reliable coverage/limited or capped coverage for medical costs for pregnant woman, child
          -no coverage of sick time if the woman is put on medical leave
          -no standard parental leave- if PT worker- no paid leave.
          -lack of daycare facilities, no consistent early ed unless you are able to pay privately
          - lack of programs to help provide for good nutrition
          -Women in this country may not have the ability to access care in a timely manner which increases the risk of needing intervention later than 12 weeks

          ** Bonus- we have folks actively creating legislation that is not medically sound, not based in science or reality. It can be argued that if one follows the letter of the law you could be sued for malpractice and negligence because the law forbids standard care with no defendable reason.

          This country is fvcked up. We have a very small percentage of pro-birth people that have little if any knowledge of the implications of what they are legislating but have managed to leverage the ability to pass laws that the majority of citizens are violently opposed to. They claim to care about life but they only want the fetus incubated. Once it comes out then they revert to passing judgement on women who have babies they can't afford or care for and continue to block any sort of program that would assist in making sure the baby was set up for success.

          Worked Family Practice for just under 30yrs. Birth to death, OB care. The sight of these a55hats blathering on about being 'pro-life' make me want to puke. They are the same dick heads who are shutting down Medical clinics that provide birth control, healthcare, supporting the non-coverage of birth control, cutting programs that support children, education, nutrition, etc. I really wish Karma would do her job.
          All of this.

          The Right is a cultural movement to repeal modernity. Same personality type and same goals as the Wahhabists. "Restore morality." "Restore natural law." "Restore modesty and godliness." Given that the penalty in the afterlife is eternal torture, this justifies a civil punishment in this life for deviation from these values. The Right believes this both as a matter of scripture and pragmatism (Pascal's wager). And they are willing, if not eager, to inflict pain to achieve their ends.

          Conservatives fight so dirty because they live in terror. They are a cornered animal that will kill us all unless we keep them from the instruments of power.

            • Why are folks so upset?
              This leak has spurred state legislators to get off their well-per-diem'd tushies and do something, just as RBG chided them years ago.

              A narrower decision, she felt, was normal and proper judicial behavior, and if the court had exercised more restraint, the country would not have had the decades of controversy we have witnessed. Given that state legislatures were already leaning toward liberalization of abortion statutes, abortion would have soon become widely legal through legislative means, with broader support. In that sense, Ginsburg implied, Roe was counterproductive.
              This will go A10, and the battle will be in States. Not each State will have the same outcome. And yet we'll have laws that better stand the Constitutionality test.

                  Tell whatever Facebook University that gave you a B.S. degree in law that you want your money back. Because the A10 is a mediocre basketball conference, and continually trying to make it a thing makes you sound as stupid as your boy Trump talking about Two Corinthians.

                            He's trying to make it a hip shorthand for the Tenth Amendment. Because everyone refers to A1 when talking about religion and A2 when talking about gun rights, dontcha know. /sarcasm

                                I may not agree with their thought process but I respect those who feel this is a life being terminated. The minute they take that as a stand alone and ignore all the complications that come with declaring this then I am lost. The anti-abortion crowd long ago stopped thinking and now just twitch any time someone rings the bell. The only thing not guaranteed is whether they drool down their front or swallow the spit.
