  • I would not be surprised if companies in the slave states start offering benefit packages including full travel, accommodation, post-care expenses for women getting abortions. The free states should start offering enticements to companies to relocate out of Gilead. Starve them.

      • And I give none of them any credit for it because I will bet every penny I have they send money to every GOP congressperson, Senator and state politico. This is just another way for them to pretend to care like Pride Month.

        Elon Musk is the perfect representation of the two faced nature of business. Di$ney and Apple are as well.

        Until they full throated endorse the Dems and give all of their donations politically to them it is all just BS lip service meant to get headlines so they don't get cancelled like they should be. End of fucking story.

          I've looked at what it would take to get licensed to practice law in Canada. It'd suck, but we could do it. Actually emigrating wouldn't be too hard provided we got jobs lined up ahead of time, because we're still relatively young enough that the point system still works for us. Entire process would take about 2 years, probably, depending on how long it took to find employment.
          My daughter practices US immigration law in Vancouver. Since they allow attorneys to practice in non-law-related firms, there are more options. She basically works in the immigration office of a large accounting firm (bringing in foreign talent). She loves Van and likes the work, but she's had a long-held goal of practicing environmental law (save the earth side), so just finished her LLM and will likely end up back in the states or abroad. If Dump or someone within his orbit wins in '24, I don't see her coming back, though.

          That's one significant difference between law and medicine: jurisdictional limitations. Although you two practice in different areas, I assume it's mainly a matter of paying for and passing licensure tests? Maybe the fact that you are active on a hockey message board would help.

            You can guarantee they’ve worked out it’s cheaper to pay for a couple weeks of abortion leave than eight plus weeks of maternity leave too.

              Both mr les and I have retired so emigrating would be difficult. I am all for it. mr les is not.

              Anyone else horrified by a fat, old, white guy who bragged about molesting women, appointing 3 SCOTUS judges who all lied at their confirmation hearings, under oath, about Roe being established precedent and then changed the law to allow women's rights to not only be molested but obliterated?
              I think if we have to flea we would go UK. Canada would be nice but if US goes completely fascist I would assume they would just take Canada over. Canada has tons of natural resources and very little as far as defense goes(a squadron of f/a 18’s is about it.)

                    What country wouldn’t want a handsome, charming, and intelligent young gentleman? I’ve spent time there and have plenty of friends from blighty and am sure I would get on just fine. My wife on the other hand isn’t as convinced she would like it.

                    I appreciate you being a bit nicer to me in this post than some of your previous posts today.

                    • It's not just the thought of living in a country led by someone like Donald Trump. It would be knowing that you are living in a place where about half of the people want to be led by him, even if you segregate yourself in a more liberal urban environment.

                        Primarily testing, yeah. Possibly having to take a semester at a Canadian law school to bone up on the differences between US and Canadian law - ie parlimentary vs. constitutional law. Big question mark would be the required apprenticeship in Canada; I think it's officially called articling - in my cursory review the provincial licensing boards can waive it, but I have no idea how common that is. There are some immigration firms that specialize in helping cross-border attorneys, so I'd probably contact them to get the full scoop if we ever got truly serious about it.

                          • We tried to entice the kids to attend college in the UK, Australia, Thailand or Korea but they insisted on going home first. I miss Minnesota more than anything and my family as well, but we have a house outside Bangkok and another on the beach in Rayong and I'd be happy to never reside in the US again. But we are very likely going to return short term within the next year or so.

                              Take my sister-in-law, who is obviously upset about this as any woman, posting about helping other women to get abortions if need be.
