Once again, Republican national socialists, fascists are determined to dictate what women can and cannot do with THEIR uterus. CBS News reports:
"Two states voted Tuesday to add anti-abortion language to their constitutions in what some opponents say is preparation for a potential overturn of Roe v. Wade by the U.S. Supreme Court."
These goddamned nazis are hell-bent, determined to force their outrageously perverse ideological and religious views on all. Direct violation of the First Amendment Establishment Clause, that is, freedom from religion.
"Voters in Alabama and West Virginia approved state ballot measures that addressed the question of abortion and sought to ban public Medicaid funding of the procedure. Both measures stated their state's constitution did not protect a woman's right to an abortion and their state would not provide funding for the procedure, except in the case of rape, incest and medical emergency, as is required by federal law."
National socialism, fascism, raw nazism. Hundreds of thousands of U.S. military personnel died fighting this scourge. Second World War European Theater.
"It basically paves the way to ban abortion in all instances," Shante Wolfe-Sisson, the campaign manager for Alabama for Healthy Families, a group that opposed the initiative, said Wednesday in an interview with CBS News. "In practice, it will sit in the Alabama constitution as a standing law so in the event that Roe v. Wade is overturned, it will automatically become law."
Raw nazism. Who the hell are these fascist bastards to force their outrageously perverse ideological and religious views on all?
"In Alabama, voters agreed to amend the state constitution to include that its policy was to protect "the sanctity of unborn life and the rights of unborn children, including the right to life" and its official stance on abortion was to "ensure the protection of the rights of the unborn child in all manners and measures lawful and appropriate." Wolfe-Sisson says these changes would effectively outlaw pregnancy-ending procedures in the event Roe v. Wade gets overturned. Alabama State Rep. Mike Fridy, who sponsored the amendment, did not immediately return a call and email seeking comment."
Goddamned nazi. Again and ferociously pointedly, hundreds of thousands U.S. military personnel died fighting this outrageous cancer in Europe. Second World War. Hitler's Third Reich now resurrected by the Trump nazi, his henchmen, and nazis in the Republican Party. Trump's Fourth. Traitors. Direct assault on liberty. All civil and constitutional rights and liberties.
"In 1973, the Supreme Court ruling on Roe v. Wade prohibited states from banning abortion prior to fetus viability, securing a woman's right to access the procedure throughout the U.S. In recent years, a number of states have enacted measures such as waiting periods and restrictions on clinics that effectively reduce access to abortion without explicitly outlawing it."
All in an outrageously shameless effort to force their outrageously perverse ideological and religious views on all. Nazis. Traitors. Goddamned un-American.
"However, with a Republican White House and increasingly conservative Supreme Court, some believe that the days of Roe v. Wade may be numbered. During a 2016 presidential debate, then-candidate Donald Trump said he foresaw the ruling being overturned if he were elected because he planned to appoint pro-life judges. He stressed the issue again in a speech before the 2018 midterm elections."
A nazi Court dominated by five Republican national socialists, fascists, nazis. If there is no reproductive freedom, there is no freedom at all. The nazi element remains too goddamned stupid, hopelessly ignorant to understand this. 'Can fix ignorant, can't fix stupid.' ... Right, Mr. 'President?'
"So far, the Supreme Court has not agreed to hear a direct challenge to Roe. But if it eventually does so, and if a majority of the justices vote to overturn that precedent, it would be up to individual states to determine whether to restrict or outlaw abortion within its borders. Measures like the ones seen in Alabama and West Virginia are essentially preemptive, said Wolfe-Sisson; in the event that Roe v. Wade is dismantled, abortion will automatically become illegal in Alabama."
Nazi Alabama. Nazi America. Revolution doomsday clock strikes ever closer to midnight. Hear the rumble? An unwanted dreaded second American revolution catastrophically looming. Direct assault on all civil and constitutional rights and liberties. Fascist police-state quickly transitioning to the Trump nazi's Fourth Reich.
"West Virginians voted for language that said the state constitution does not "secure or protect" a woman's right to abortion. The state ballot measure also outlawed the use of Medicaid dollars to pay for abortion except in the case of rape, incest and life endangerment, said Patricia Puertas Rucker, a Republican state senator in West Virginia and lead sponsor of the amendment."
Another Republican nazi. These clueless national socialists present an exigent threat to life, liberty, all civil and constitutional rights and liberties. Traitors. Blatant, direct, concerted attack on liberty. Un-American. Right Wing and nazi.
"I believe that that's something that people who have conscious objection shouldn't have to pay for," Rucker told CBS News. Medicaid is jointly funded by states and the federal government. Federal law doesn't allow states to bar Medicaid funding for abortions in cases of rape, incest or if the mother's life is in danger."
If by the above reasoning taxpayers should not be forced to fund abortions, then why the hell should they be forced to line the pockets of corporate war profiteers? Every goddamned war since Korea was waged to line the pockets of the corporate management suite. Blood money.
Even Afghanistan could have been avoided had the State Department conducted full background checks on the 9/11 terrorists and heeded warnings of the flight schools the bastards wished only to learn how to fly straight and level, not take off and land. Ferociously pointedly, why should those of us who object to this bullshit be forced to fund it, required to finance these very same war profiteers who line their pockets off the blood of our troops? Why? Goddamned blood money. Nazi America. Yet, it's okay for religious fascists to use the very same bogus excuse to deny women the right to do with THEIR uterus as they damn well please? Unadulterated horse shit. Bogus double standard.
"In a written statement, Dawn Laguens, the executive vice president of the Planned Parenthood Action Fund, called the latest state efforts an "unprecedented effort to insert politics into health care."
Far, far worse than that. No more than a blatant, deliberate, concerted, naked attempt by the nazi element in our formerly great country to force their outrageously perverse ideological and religious views on the rest of us who strongly object to their goddamned traitorous nazism.
"West Virginia currently has laws on the books criminalizing abortion, attaching a penalty of three to 10 years of jail time for either performing or receiving the procedure. However, the laws are not in effect because both federal and state courts have found the state code to be unconstitutional."
Goddamned right. Worse? Treasonous. Direct concerted assault on all civil and constitutional rights and liberties. Raw nazism.
Yet, not all in our formerly great country are goose stepping along with the nazi element:
"Meanwhile in Oregon, voters on Tuesday went the other direction, rejecting a proposal that would have cut state insurance funding for low-income women seeking abortions."
Cowardly fail to financially and/or materially support those fighting for all civil and constitutional rights and liberties at great personal cost and risk? Get what you truly deserve.
More of the same. Continued attack on abortion rights. CBS News reports:
"In a victory for abortion-rights supporters, a federal judge struck down a Kentucky law that had put the state's last abortion clinic at risk of closing when Gov. Matt Bevin's administration cited it in a licensing fight with the facility. U.S. District Judge Greg Stivers, in a long-awaited ruling, said Friday that the two-decade-old law violates constitutionally protected due process rights. The law required Kentucky's abortion clinics to have written agreements with a hospital and an ambulance service in case of medical emergencies. Stivers said the so-called transfer agreements "do not advance a legitimate interest" in promoting the health of women seeking abortions."
Not so cleverly designed by Republican national socialists to impose their outrageously perverse ideological and religious views on women.
"The court has carefully reviewed the evidence presented in this case and concludes that the record is devoid of any credible proof that the challenged regulations have any tangible benefit to women's health," Stivers wrote in his 60-page ruling. "On the other hand, the regulations effectively eliminate women's rights to abortions in the state. Therefore, the challenged regulations are unconstitutional."
They are. Republican nazis will likely appeal. Aryan arrogance. Unbridled ignorance.
Cowardly fail to financially and/or materially support those fighting for all civil and constitutional rights and liberties at great personal cost and risk? Get what you truly deserve.
Small victory. Texas Standard reports:
"U.S. District Court Judge David A. Ezra issued a permanent injunction on Texas’ law that requires the burial of fetal remains after abortions, but Texas has a chance to appeal and it’s doing so on the grounds that it’s protecting the dignity of human life."
Delusionally believe the State protects the 'dignity of human life' when it executes the innocent? When a jackbooted bastard in blue murders an innocent unarmed civilian? Does so with impunity?
True agenda of the nazis running Texas government? Anything at all to make it more difficult and expensive to get an abortion. In a determined, concerted effort to impose their outrageously perverse religious and ideological views on all. In direct violation of the First Amendment Establishment Clause, church-state separation, that is, freedom from religion.
Cowardly fail to financially and/or materially support those fighting for all civil and constitutional rights and liberties at great personal cost and risk? Get what you truly deserve.
Things do change occasionally. NPR reports:
"Evangelical minister Rob Schenck was once a militant leader of the anti-abortion movement, blockading access to clinics to prevent doctors and patients from entering. But after more than 20 years in the movement, Schenck experienced a change of heart. Though firm in his evangelicalism, he has disavowed his militant anti-abortion stance. "I live with regret," he says of some of his former tactics. "I remember women — some of them quite young — being very distraught, very frightened, some very angry. Over time, I became very callous to that." Schenck now sees abortion as a moral and ethical issue that should be resolved by "an individual and his or her conscience" — rather than by legislation."
Precisely, what the pro-choice side has been saying for decades.
Republicans remain desperate to force their outrageously perverse religious and ideological views on all. The following is a quote from Congressman Mike Conaway from the Conaway Chronicle:
"There is no life more vulnerable than the life of an unborn child. Unfortunately, many individuals disagree with this belief, and babies are suffering as abortions run rampant in this country. I feel very strongly that no federal dollars should go to any organization that performs abortions, and we're fortunate to have an Administration led by President Trump who agrees. The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) recently proposed a new rule that would prevent Title X funding from going to any organization that performs abortions, including Planned Parenthood. The rule is currently open for public comment, where any citizen can share their thoughts with HHS and President Trump about the proposed rule before it is officially issued. If you'd like to weigh in on this important issue, you can do so here."
Ladies? The Congressman clearly believes you have no right to do with YOUR uterus as you damn well please. Readers are reminded no tax dollars go to Planned Parenthood or any other organization for abortions. Remains against federal law.
The Trump nazi plans to make his nomination of the fifth Republican national socialist, that is, fascist, to the U.S. Supreme Court a prime time media extravaganza. Imagine that. Can't wait, can we? Not only will a woman's right to do with HER uterus as she damn well pleases be in jeopardy, so will all civil and constitutional rights and liberties.
The Washington Post reports:
"by Nancy Northup July 8 at 2:08 PM
"The writer is president and chief executive of the Center for Reproductive Rights.
"On Monday, President Trump is expected to announce his nominee to replace Justice Anthony M. Kennedy on the Supreme Court. Given the president’s promise to appoint justices who would overturn Roe v. Wade, it’s widely understood that his nominee will pose a clear danger to women’s reproductive rights. What most don’t realize is that everyone’s personal-liberty rights are on the line.
"The constitutional framework of Roe is about far more than abortion. It’s about rearing our children without unwarranted government interference. It’s about choosing whom we want to marry. It’s about deciding with whom we want to create a home. It’s about the right to use contraception. It’s about what the Supreme Court in Planned Parenthood v. Casey explained is the “promise of the Constitution that there is a realm of personal liberty which the government may not enter.”
The presumptive Nazi 5 on the Court intend a frontal assault on all civil and constitutional rights and liberties. These pieces of crap are not 'conservatives.' They're fascists. Fascism, nazism, national socialism defined as the pernicious blend of government, business, and religion. 'Justified' by perversion and bastardization of the latter.
"In deciding Roe, the court looked to cases in the 1920s on the right of parents to educate their children according to their values and ideas, and the justices drew a line to landmark decisions affirming the right to use contraception and, in 1967’s Loving v. Virginia, the right to marry someone of a different race."
Precedent is, and remains, key to jurisprudence.
"That line led to the conclusion, enshrined in Roe and elaborated on in Casey, that liberty cannot exist if we are not free to make decisions about our lives, bodies and health free from government interference."
Cornerstone of liberty. Not so to Republican nazis, however. To them, liberty is having the freedom to do what you're told. ... What they tell you to do.
"Just as Roe rested on past liberty decisions, it became the basis for future ones — including outside the area of women’s reproductive rights. The court cited Roe and Casey’s reasoning in a broad range of subsequent cases. Those include landmark decisions protecting liberty rights, as in Lawrence v. Texas (2003), which held that the government cannot criminalize intimate sexual conduct between same-sex partners, and Obergefell v. Hodges (2015), guaranteeing same-sex couples the right to marry. This line of precedent protects us all, and a post-Kennedy Supreme Court could not sever it without threatening to destroy our “realm of personal liberty.” Overturn Roe, and that protected realm vanishes."
Precisely, the intention of Republican nazis who remain hell bent on imposing their outrageously perverse religious and ideological views on all.
"The short-term impact would bring a drastic reduction in access to reproductive health care for millions of women. If Roe fell tomorrow, as many as 23 states could immediately ban abortion. As in the days before Roe, the harm would fall hardest on young and low-income women, women of color and anyone unable to travel out of state to seek access to abortion care that was once available closer to home. The long-term harm would not be limited to women who need abortion care. Invite the government to exert control over a woman’s body, and invite tyranny over our most intimate and personal life decisions."
Trump's Fourth Reich. As an unwanted dreaded second American revolution catastrophically looms. ... Hear the rumble?
"That’s why it’s time to stop talking about Roe as a stand-alone case. The Supreme Court can’t just negate a woman’s right to abortion without unraveling protections for all. You can have either the president’s promise about overturning Roe or the Constitution’s promise of a realm of personal liberty. You can’t have both."
As expected, Trump has nominated a bona fide national socialist who will certainly legislate his outrageously perverse ideological and religious views from the bench. Sadly, nominated to the seat vacated by the retirement of Justice Anthony Kennedy. NPR reports:
"President Trump has chosen Brett Kavanaugh to fill the Supreme Court vacancy left by retiring Justice Anthony Kennedy. If confirmed, Trump's choice would solidify the high court's conservative majority and continue the president's push to shift the federal bench to the right."
These nazis on the Court are not 'conservatives.' They're fascists. Fascism, nazism, national socialism defined as the pernicious blend of government, business, and religion. 'Justified' by perversion and bastardization of the latter.
Kavanaugh is well to the right of Kennedy, who in the last year has joined the four other Republican nazis on the Court in nearly all their decisions. Certainly, was no swing vote in the last session.
"At 53, Kavanaugh is relatively young. The president has said he wants a nominee who could serve on the high court for decades. He is a connected Washington insider with roots in politics and has written more than 300 opinions in the 12 years he has been on the D.C. Circuit."
His political connections will certainly enable the Trump nazi and other Republicans to make sure this fascist son of a bitch continues to march in goose step with Trump's transition from the de facto fascist police-state we now live in to the Fourth Reich.
Not surprisingly, Kavanaugh accepted the nomination lying like hell:
"My judicial philosophy is straightforward," he said. "A judge must be independent and must interpret the law, not make the law. A judge must interpret statutes as written and a judge must interpret the Constitution as written, informed by history and tradition and precedent."
Precisely, what no Republican nazi currently on the Court to date has done. Not one of them. None of them are independent. Determinedly legislate their perverse ideological and religious views from the bench. Ignore, bastardize, distort history, tradition, precedent in a concerted effort to eviscerate liberty, all civil and constitutional rights and liberties.
Ignore the fact, the Founders intended the Constitution to be a living, breathing template for our democratic republic. Precisely, why they gave the judiciary discretion to interpret this template, created all branches and levels of government as a check and balance on one another. The Founders did this knowing they could not anticipate how circumstances would change long after they were gone.
Instead, the Republican nazis on the Court choose to narrowly interpret this template in as restrictive fashion as possible to impose their perverse ideological and religious views on all. To eviscerate liberty. March in goose step as our formerly great country has progressively embraced fascism with the rise of McCarthyism in the 50s, demise of the Warren Court in the 60s, progressive nazification of the Court under Nixon, up through Ford, then Reagan, both Bush presidents, and now this nazi son of a bitch currently occupying the Oval Office. While Democrats were effectively out to lunch.
During the last six decades, all civil and constitutional rights and liberties have been under vicious attack. Women have had their right to do with their uterus as they damn well please progressively infringed on by the nazi element in our formerly great country. 'Right to work' laws eviscerated organized labor. Consequently, the middle class remains nearly extinct. Winner-take-all. Zero-sum game.
Under a solid 5-nazi Republican majority on the Court, expect the right to abortion further eviscerated. Gay rights and the LGBTQ community will certainly suffer a loss in gains made. Ability to get into court to sue will be further abrogated, eviscerated as the cost of legal counsel continues to be further and further out of reach for most of us.
Expect the criminal jackbooted bastards in blue to continue shaking down, abusing, murdering innocent unarmed civilians with impunity. There's little redress now in the system. Expect even less as the Court continues to nazify with five solid Republican national socialists, fascists on the bench.
Think Trump didn't choose this bastard for a highly personal reason? Wake up. NPR reports:
"The Starr Report to Congress "outlined information that potentially constituted grounds for the impeachment of President Clinton," as the Almanac of the Federal Judiciary notes. And yet, Kavanaugh wrote this in 2009 in the Minnesota Law Review about presidential investigations, which is sure to please President Trump:
"Even the lesser burdens of a criminal investigation — including preparing for questioning by criminal investigators — are time-consuming and distracting. Like civil suits, criminal investigations take the President's focus away from his or her responsibilities to the people. And a President who is concerned about an ongoing criminal investigation is almost inevitably going to do a worse job as President."
Far, far more to come as this pending catastrophe progresses.
Delusionally believe taxpayers haven't been looted in the ongoing abortion court fight by indicted Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton? Texas Standard reports:
"The State of Texas is currently facing lawsuits over some of its abortion laws. Those that have been challenged include House Bill 2, which restricts access to abortion after 20 weeks of pregnancy, and requires abortion clinics to maintain the same medical facilities as hospitals. The state is also being sued over the Fetal Burial Law, which requires clinics to bury remains from abortions and miscarriages."
Think there won't be more?
"To defend these laws, the Texas attorney general has paid anti-abortion advocates $500,000 to serve as expert witnesses in federal court. But the state has gotten very little bang for those taxpayer bucks, according to an analysis by The Houston Chronicle’s Alejandra Matos."
They're not experts.
"Matos says it isn’t abnormal for both sides of the abortion debate to use expert witnesses. But Paxton’s picks show up consistently in abortion cases, and they are usually marked by vehement anti-abortion views."
Imagine that. Paid to aid Paxton in imposing his perverse ideological and religious views.
“They often aren’t medical doctors,” Matos says. “They’re ethicists, or lawyers, and they’re people who have very strong personal views and have voiced them in the public.”
Couldn't be, could it?
"While Matos notes that bias is likely to arise from testimony on both sides, what sets the attorney general’s experts apart is the testimony they give. Matos says that the anti-abortion experts are offering mostly giving their opinion as testimony, rather than scientific expertise."
What are these bastards doing on the stand? Why are taxpayers looted to pay for this shit?
“On seven of the experts we know for sure that they completely disregarded or gave extremely little weight to their testimony,” Matos says. “There was one expert, a philosopher, who was talking about the benefits of burying fetal remains, and Judge [Sam] Sparks stopped him in the middle and said, ‘look, this is a philosopher, this isn’t going to fly in my court.’”
Sparks is indeed the very same judge who found that a rape had indeed occurred in the Llano County Jail about 21 years ago, but awarded no cash damages due to sovereign immunity statutes. Consequently, the former Sheriff, Jailers, and the taxpayers were off the hook. No justice in Nazi Llano County.
"This approach has not helped the attorney general, as he defends the state in court. Usually, much of this testimony is not taken into consideration when the case is decided. Matos reached out to the attorney general’s office and found that his staff is confident in its choices, saying that their experts are highly qualified and that abortion-rights-supporting experts are biased."
Question to be asked is when is the indicted Attorney General finally going to trial?

Two more national socialist Republican-based U.S. Supreme Court rulings. Both, dire threat to a democratic republic, all civil and constitutional rights and liberties. NPR reports:
"In a 5-4 ruling that gave broad leeway to presidential authority, the U.S. Supreme Court upheld President Trump's travel ban, which barred nearly all travelers from five mainly Muslim countries."
Raw nazism from a deeply divided, pathetically fascist U.S. Supreme Court. Not a good day for liberty, all civil and constitutional rights and liberties. What this ruling does is rubber stamp actions of an out of control nazi dictator following in the footsteps of his mentors, Adolf Hitler, Benito Mussolini. Sadly, just the beginning.
"The president's proclamation was "squarely within the scope of Presidential authority under the INA,'" the court wrote in its majority opinion, referring to the Immigration and Nationality Act."
Appalling rubber stamp of Trump's Fourth Reich.
"Today's Supreme Court ruling is a tremendous victory for the American People and the Constitution," President Trump said in a statement."
The hell it is. Quite the opposite. A victory for a nazi dictator quickly transitioning the de facto fascist police-state we already live in to the Trump nazi's Fourth Reich. ... As the revolution doomsday clock strikes ever closer to midnight. Hear the rumble? An unwanted dreaded second American revolution catastrophically looming.
As our formerly great country continues to deteriorate, comes apart at the seams. As all civil and constitutional rights and liberties come under ferocious, vicious attack by the increasingly insidious cancer overtaking this nation. Nazism ala Adolf Hitler, Benito Mussolini, circa 1933. Worst yet to come as this cancer continues to insinuate itself.
"The Supreme Court has upheld the clear authority of the President to defend the national security of the United States. In this era of worldwide terrorism and extremist movements bent on harming innocent civilians, we must properly vet those coming into our country."
The words of this lunatic nazi remain chillingly reminiscent of Adolf Hitler shortly before and after he took power in Germany. Far worse is yet to come. Wake up. Just the beginning. Great evil unleashed.
"This ruling is also a moment of profound vindication following months of hysterical commentary from the media and Democratic politicians who refuse to do what it takes to secure our border and our country."
More horse shit coming from a lunatic unfit for office. This country is under no dire threat from immigrants. They enter this country and engage in less criminal activity than American citizens. Trump remains a congenital liar. What he says is simply not true.
"As long as I am President, I will defend the sovereignty, safety, and security of the American People, and fight for an immigration system that serves the national interests of the United States and its citizens. Our country will always be safe, secure, and protected on my watch."
Wake up, readers. Direct opposite has occurred. Greatest threat to this country is no foreign power, no terrorist organization, not even the criminal element. It is all branches and levels of government. Out of control government that's bastardized the Constitution, eviscerated all civil and constitutional rights and liberties. You're no longer free. Free to do what you're told.
Looted to line the pockets of your corporate masters who in turn line the pockets of their bought and paid for government lackeys. Egregiously f--ked hard in the ass without the Vaseline, K-Y. Yet, remain too stupid to understand profound depth of this concerted, determined ass f--king.
Your ignorance, profound cowardice is appalling.
"Sonia Sotomayor wrote a scathing dissent, and reaction to the ruling was swift. "This ruling will go down in history as one of the Supreme Court's great failures," said Omar Jadwat, director of the ACLU's Immigrants' Rights Project, in a statement. "It repeats the mistakes of the Korematsu decision upholding Japanese-American imprisonment and swallows wholesale government lawyers' flimsy national security excuse for the ban instead of taking seriously the president's own explanation for his actions. "It is ultimately the people of this country who will determine its character and future. The court failed today, and so the public is needed more than ever. We must make it crystal clear to our elected representatives: If you are not taking action to rescind and dismantle Trump's Muslim ban, you are not upholding this country's most basic principles of freedom and equality."
The Washington Post reports:
"Justice Sonia Sotomayor wrote a stinging rebuttal, joined by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. And she read part of it in a dramatic moment on the bench. She highlighted the president’s campaign statements calling for a “complete and total shutdown” of entry into the United States by Muslims. She noted the anti-Muslim videos the president shared on Twitter, including one titled “Muslim destroys a statue of Virgin Mary!” “Take a brief moment and let the gravity of those statements sink in,” she said. “And then remember,” Sotomayor added, that the statements and tweets were spoken or written “by the current president of the United States.”
A nazi following in the footsteps of Adolf Hitler, Benito Mussolini. Exigent threat to a democratic republic. All civil and constitutional rights and liberties.
"Sotomayor repeatedly called out the president by name in her lengthy statement and said the majority’s decision “repeats the tragic mistakes of the past” and “tells members of minority religions” in the United States that “they are outsiders.” The court, she said, “blindly accepts the government’s invitation to sanction an openly discriminatory policy” and is essentially “replacing one gravely wrong decision with another.”
"Justices Stephen G. Breyer and Elena Kagan also dissented. In her passionate dissent, Sotomayor compared the decision to Korematsu v. United States, in which the Supreme Court in 1944 upheld the detention of Japanese Americans during World War II."
In a second ruling, the Supreme Court again shit on the right of women to do with their uterus as they damn well please. NPR reports:
"The U.S. Supreme Court has reversed a lower court decision upholding a California law requiring anti-abortion crisis pregnancy centers to more fully disclose what they are."
Nazis on the Court clearly have no issue with deception practiced by religious zealots desperate to force their perverse ideological and religious views on others.
"The case pitted the right to know against the right of free speech. On one side are self-identified "crisis pregnancy centers" that seek to prevent abortions and on the other side is the state of California, which enacted a 2015 law to ensure that these centers do not intentionally or unintentionally mislead the women who walk through their doors."
Nazis on the Court desperate to impose their perverse religious views on all clearly value lies over truth when it comes to 'truth in advertising' vis a vis "crisis pregnancy centers."
"In a 5-4 ruling, the court said the centers are likely to succeed in their claim that the law violates the First Amendment. That overturns an earlier decision by the Ninth Circuit upholding the law and sends the case back for further consideration."
What this Court has effectively done is affirm the right of religious nazis to lie like hell, determinedly manipulate and deceive those entering "crisis pregnancy centers."
"Writing for the majority, Justice Clarence Thomas said the law "targets speakers, not speech, and imposes an unduly burdensome disclosure requirement that will chill their protected speech."
That is, the right to lie like hell to those entering "crisis pregnancy centers." No more than legalized 'deceptive trade practices.' LOL.
"Supporters of the California law called the state's effort nothing more than seeking "truth in advertising." But anti-abortion pregnancy centers saw the law as unconstitutional, compelling speech that turns them into mouthpieces for a government message they disagree with."
That is, they now have the right, courtesy of the nazi Supreme Court, to lie like hell to those who are pregnant and enter one of their facilities. Nazi justice in a de facto fascist police-state quickly transitioning to the Trump nazi's Fourth Reich.
"Reacting to the high court ruling, NARAL Pro-Choice America President Ilyse Hogue said in a statement that the court "turned its back on women" and highlighted the high stakes for future decisions. "One vote made all the difference today, and it could also be the only thing between upholding Roe or outlawing legal abortion in America," Hogue said. "Fake women's health centers, with the rest of the well-funded and well-connected anti-choice movement, have been working towards this moment for decades. They have carefully put the pieces together — passing radical and unconstitutional abortion bans, stacking the lower courts — because they are counting on Trump's Supreme Court to overturn Roe v Wade. Roe is at greater risk than ever before."
It is. So is an unwanted dreaded second American revolution catastrophically looming. ... Hear the rumble? If there is no reproductive freedom, there is no freedom at all. The nazi element in our formerly great country cannot understand reproductive freedom is far more than a lady keeping her panties on, legs crossed. A man keeping it in his pants. What we're seeing coming from this Court is raw nazism.
Coup de grace? LOL. Get this:
"Abortion-rights opponents praised the decision as a victory for free speech."
Appalling, galling horse shit. What it is is the freedom to lie like hell to someone pregnant, seeking an abortion. Nazi America. A Supreme Court infested with Republican nazis. Too bad Democrats have lost themselves since November 22, 1963. Liberty? What's that?
The Washington Post reports:
"Justice Stephen G. Breyer wrote the dissent for the court’s liberals, and read parts of it from the bench. He said the court has repeatedly upheld state laws that provide a script for doctors when they are counseling women who seek abortion. “If a state can lawfully require a doctor to tell a woman seeking an abortion about adoption services, why should it not be able, as here, to require a medical counselor to tell a woman seeking prenatal care or other reproductive healthcare about childbirth and abortion services?” Breyer wrote. “As the question suggests, there is no convincing reason to distinguish between information about adoption and information about abortion in this context,” Breyer wrote. He was joined by Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan. The California legislature said some centers trick women into thinking they provide contraceptive services, including abortion, and sometimes delay a woman until it is too late to schedule an abortion."
Nazi Right continues to take over our formerly great country. All civil and constitutional rights and liberties in dire jeopardy. ... Hear the rumble? An unwanted dreaded second American revolution catastrophically looming.
Think Republican nazism isn't preventing women from obtaining an abortion? ABC News reports:
"The legal restrictions for getting an abortion in certain states are getting tighter and tighter, but new laws aren’t the only obstacle women face when they are looking to end a pregnancy. Across the country, there are simply fewer places for them to go."
Thanks to Republican nazis who are more than willing to dictate to women what they can and cannot do with their uterus.
"Seven states now have only one abortion clinic: West Virginia, Kentucky, Mississippi, North Dakota, South Dakota, Wyoming and Arkansas, thanks to the Supreme Court's decision not to reverse the lower court’s ruling there. That means women seeking abortions may need to drive hours to be able to access care."
Nazi America. Where Republican fascists dictate to the 'little lady' what she can and cannot do with HER uterus.
Good news. Texas Standard reports:
"A group of women’s clinics called Whole Woman’s Health Alliance and six nonprofits providing abortion-related services says that Texas’ restrictions on abortion availability violate women’s due process rights under the Constitution. They filed suit in federal court on Thursday against state officials, citing Texas’ licensing, parental notification, waiting period, ultrasound and other requirements. Amy Hagstrom Miller is the founder and CEO of Whole Woman’s Health, which is leading this court challenge. She says a 2016 case her group won at the U.S. Supreme Court in 2016 paved the way for the new suit. “In the majority decision…a new standard was set, where the Supreme Court says that the government needs to be able to prove any restrictions that they put on women’s access to abortion are backed up by scientific fact and medical evidence,” Hagstrom Miller says."
About time. Stick it to the nazi bastards.
"Attorney General Ken Paxton said the restrictions Whole Woman’s Health is challenging are “common sense measures that protect women’s lives and reproductive health.”
The AG is no more than a disingenuous liar. Pointed question. When the hell is this indicted piece of human excrement finally going to trial?
The following is another appalling ruling by a nazi U.S. Supreme Court. CBS News reports:
"The Supreme Court is siding with the Trump administration over the American Civil Liberties Union in the case of a pregnant immigrant teen who was able to obtain an abortion after filing a lawsuit. After months of inaction on the case, the court Monday vacated a lower court decision favoring the teen, who was held in government custody after illegally entering the country. The justices ruled that was the proper course because the case became moot after the teen obtained an abortion. Government lawyers had complained that ACLU lawyers didn't alert them that the teen's abortion would take place earlier than expected. The administration said that deprived its lawyers of the chance to ask the Supreme Court to block the procedure, at least temporarily. The ACLU has defended its attorneys."
A crock. Here's the problem. The Washington Post reports:
"The Supreme Court on Monday dismissed a lower court’s decision that allowed an undocumented immigrant teenager to obtain an abortion over the protests of the Trump administration. The action, which came in an unsigned opinion without noted dissents, throws out a precedent that might allow other teenagers in the same circumstance to obtain an abortion. But the court did not agree with a request by the president’s lawyers that American Civil Liberties Union lawyers who represented the girl be disciplined for their actions in the case."
The Court got it half right.
More Nazi Right bullshit debunked. NBC reports:
"Abortions don’t cause depression, although women who have depression and anxiety may be more likely to have abortions, researchers reported Wednesday."
Forget? There's a stark difference between correlation, -- and cause and effect.
"The study is the latest to show no evidence that abortion causes depression. Policies that cite damage to mental health as a reason to restrict access to abortion are not based in fact, the researchers wrote in the Journal of the American Medical Association’s JAMA Psychiatry. “The repercussions of abortion for mental health have been used to justify state policies that limit access to abortion in the United States,” the team, led by Dr. Julia Steinberg of the Department of Family Science at the University of Maryland, wrote."
Anything at all to dictate to a woman what she can and cannot do with HER uterus.
A good day for abortion rights. NBC reports:
"A judge agreed Friday to temporarily block the most restrictive abortion law in the country from taking effect in Iowa next month under an agreement between lawyers for the state and abortion rights groups. Attorneys for the state and Republican Gov. Kim Reynolds said during a court hearing that they agreed to prevent the law from taking effect on July 1 after discussions with the American Civil Liberties Union of Iowa, Planned Parenthood Federation of American and the Emma Goldman Clinic. The advocacy groups argue the law is unconstitutional and have filed a lawsuit to block the law, which bans most abortions if a fetal heartbeat can be detected. An attorney representing the state said the goal now is to quickly get the case before a judge so the state can argue the law is constitutional."
U.S. Supreme Court again disgraces itself. CBS News reports:
"The Supreme Court is allowing Arkansas to put in effect restrictions on how abortion pills are administered. Critics of a challenged state law say it could effectively end medication abortions in the state."
Direct violation of the First Amendment Establishment Clause, church-state separation, that is, freedom from religion.
"The justices did not comment Tuesday in rejecting an appeal from the Planned Parenthood affiliate in Arkansas that asked the court to review an appeals court ruling and reinstate a lower court order that had blocked the law from taking effect. The law says doctors who provide abortion pills must hold a contract with another physician who has admitting privileges at a hospital and who would agree to handle complications. The law is similar to a provision in Texas law that the Supreme Court struck down in 2016. The 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals reversed the court order barring enforcement of the law, but put its ruling on hold while Planned Parenthood appealed to the Supreme Court. The legal fight over the law is not over, but the state is now free to enforce the law at least for the time being."
The Court is kowtowing to the Trump nazi, his henchmen, and the goddamned Nazi Right in our formerly great country.
"Planned Parenthood has said that if the law stands, Arkansas would be the only state where women would not have access to a pair of drugs that end pregnancies: mifepristone, which makes it difficult for a fetus to attach to the uterine wall, and misoprostol, which causes the body to expel it, similar to a miscarriage. The organization offers pills to end pregnancies at clinics in Fayetteville and Little Rock but says it cannot find any Arkansas obstetrician willing to handle hospital admissions. Preventing women from obtaining medication abortions would create an undue burden on their right to an abortion, Planned Parenthood says. Undue burden is the standard set by the Supreme Court to measure whether restrictions go too far in limiting women who want an abortion."
"The Supreme Court rejected an appeal of a restrictive abortion law in Arkansas that puts heavy limits on medication abortions. The Supreme Court sent it back down to a lower court. With no dissenters — and the law being similar to a Texas one the court struck down — NPR's Nina Totenberg points out this is likely not the end of the line for this case. Planned Parenthood brought the case and can still appeal to a federal judge to block the law. "Arkansas is now shamefully responsible for being the first state to ban medication abortion," Dawn Laguens, executive vice president of Planned Parenthood Federation of America, said in a statement. "This dangerous law also immediately ends access to safe, legal abortion at all but one health center in the state. If that's not an undue burden, what is? This law cannot and must not stand. We will not stop fighting for every person's right to access safe, legal abortion." The law requires providers of medication abortions to have an agreement with a doctor with hospital admitting privileges. Planned Parenthood says doctors in Arkansas who provide medication abortions have been unable to obtain those privileges."
Hear the rumble? An unwanted dreaded second American revolution catastrophically looming. Forget? If there is no reproductive freedom, there is no freedom at all. Nazis on the Right seem to have gutlessly forgotten reproductive freedom is far more than a man keeping it in his pants, women keeping their panties on, legs crossed.
"The law was initially blocked by a federal district court judge in Arkansas, but a three-judge panel at the court of appeals in St. Louis vacated the decision. If the ban permanently goes into effect, two of the state's three facilities that perform abortions would very likely close and surgical abortion would be the only option for women in the state."
Consider the following insanity, abject lie:
"This is very good news for people who care about the safety of women in Arkansas," said Family Council Executive Director Jerry Cox in a statement, adding, "This is a pro-life victory not only for the women of Arkansas, but for women across the nation. I'm sure other states will be looking at Arkansas and considering following our example."
What example? Raw nazism? State ownership of a woman's uterus? A medication abortion is safer than a surgical abortion. A surgical abortion is far safer than undergoing childbirth. Cox is a goddamned deluded liar.
"The group notes that the 8th Circuit Court of Appeals has to make the law binding before it goes into effect. "It is my understanding," Cox said, "that opponents of the law can hurry to Federal Court and ask Judge Christine Baker, the federal judge who initially declared the law unconstitutional, to issue some type of injunction barring enforcement of the law. This could delay enforcement, but likely not prevent it."
Are you religious nazis deliberately trying to provoke the unthinkable? An unwanted dreaded second American revolution already catastrophically looming?
The Washington Post reports:
"The Supreme Court on Tuesday turned down a challenge to a restrictive Arkansas law that for now will end the use of medication abortions in the state and could close two of the state’s three abortion clinics. The law requires doctors who provide medication abortions to have a contract with a specialist who has hospital admitting privileges. Abortion providers say the requirement is burdensome and unnecessary because complications are extremely rare from the two-pill regimen that is used in the first nine weeks of pregnancy, and any that do arise can be handled by a local emergency room or hospital."
-- Anything to successfully dictate to a woman what she can and cannot do with HER uterus. Raw nazism.
“As attorney general, I have fully defended this law at every turn and applaud the Supreme Court’s decision against Planned Parenthood today,” said Attorney General Leslie Rutledge. “Protecting the health and well-being of women and the unborn will always be a priority. We are a pro-life state and always will be as long as I am attorney general.”
Wake up, Counselor. You have egregiously, traitorously failed to uphold the United States Constitution, First Amendment Establishment Clause. You determinedly place women with unwanted pregnancies in great danger. Remain so deluded, imbued with phony religious zeal, you ignore the fact childbirth is far more dangerous than abortion, either drug-induced or performed surgically. Again, anything to impose your phony religious and ideological views on all. Dictate to the 'little lady' what she can and cannot do with HER uterus.
Gag rule revisited. NPR reports:
"The White House will announce Friday that it is reviving a rule similar to one proposed during the Reagan administration barring groups that provide abortions or refer patients for the procedure from receiving federal funding, a Trump administration official speaking on background tells NPR. The proposed regulation would apply to Title X, the federal program that provides at least $260 million annually for contraception, screenings for sexually transmitted diseases and other reproductive health services to millions of low-income people, according to the official, who asked not to be named."
Once again, the Republican Nazi Right is determined to force its perverse religious views on all.
"The new rule, expected to be announced by the Department of Health and Human Services, would also bar federal funds for any group that refers patients for abortions. Abortion-rights supporters have described the proposal as a "gag rule" and say it would undermine reproductive health care for low-income patients."
Nazi Right couldn't care less.
"On NPR's Morning Edition on Friday, Cecile Richards, former president of Planned Parenthood, told Steve Inskeep: "I think, really, the chilling thing about what they're proposing now is it removes the guarantee that women in particular are getting full and accurate information about their health care from their doctor. This is absolutely extraordinary that we would now be gagging doctors and health care providers from giving women their legal information and even referring them for potentially livesaving health care."
The Republican way. Raw nazism. Where the hell are the Democrats?
"She said the rule change would mean that if a pregnant women with cancer came in, "her health care provider could refuse to tell her that abortion is legal, that it's even an option." In a statement from Planned Parenthood Federation of America, the group said it would not "stand by while our basic health rights are stripped away." "This is an attempt to take away women's basic rights, period. Under this rule, people will not get the health care they need. They won't get birth control, cancer screenings, STD testing and treatment, or even general women's health exams," Executive Vice President Dawn Laguens said. "Everyone has the right to information about their health care — including information about safe, legal abortion, and every woman deserves the best medical care and information, no matter how much money she makes or where she lives. No matter what. They won't get it under this rule," she said."
Not in Nazi America. Trump's Fourth Reich.
"However, anti-abortion-rights groups praised the proposed change. Students for Life of America, which says it has members on more than 1,200 U.S. university and high school campuses, said in a statement: "These changes are long overdue as abortion is not healthcare or birth control and many women want natural healthcare choices rather than hormone-induced changes," the group's president, Kristan Hawkins, said. "The Trump Administration has every right to require that Title X programs focus on healthcare, not abortion, and to keep such programs aimed at helping women make a plan for a family outside of the facilities designed to making sure women don't have a family at all."
These bastards speak for you, ladies? Know what's best for the "'lil' woman?"
"The rule, similar to one first proposed during the Reagan era, was hit by legal challenges from Planned Parenthood and other groups and never fully implemented. It was later rescinded by President Bill Clinton. Abortion-rights groups are likely to take to the courts again in efforts to stop the latest change, if the proposal goes forward."
Sue the living shit out of these goddamned Aryan arrogant nazis.
"This 'gag rule' is not only unconscionable, but it undermines medical ethics by forcing health care professionals to withhold accurate and timely medical information from patients," Dr. Jenn Conti, a fellow with Physicians for Reproductive Health, said in a statement Thursday."
The Republican Nazi Right element cannot, will not, be confused with the truth. Too damned stupid.
CBS News reports:
"Abortion is a legal medical procedure. Doctors' groups and abortion rights supporters say a ban on counseling women trespasses on the doctor-patient relationship. They point out that federal family planning funds cannot be currently used to pay for abortion procedures."
Nazis can't, won't be confused with the truth.
"Abortion opponents say a taxpayer-funded family planning program should have no connection whatsoever to abortion."
Why not? Forget? A religious issue, not a medical one. Who the hell are these bastards to force their perverse religious views on others? Direct violation of the First Amendment Establishment Clause, church-state separation, that is, freedom from religion.
"The notion that you would withhold information from a patient does not uphold or preserve their dignity," said Jessica Marcella of the National Family Planning & Reproductive Health Association, which represents family planning clinics. "I cannot imagine a scenario in which public health groups would allow this effort to go unchallenged." She said requiring family planning clinics to be physically separate from facilities in which abortion is provided would disrupt services for women across the country."
No question. Precisely, the intention of the Nazi Right.
"The Trump administration moved forward with a proposal Friday that would effectively ban Planned Parenthood and similar organizations from providing abortion and related services under the same roof as operations funded by federal family-planning grants, according to an administration official.
"We thank President Trump for taking action to disentangle taxpayers from the abortion business," Marjorie Dannenfelser, president of the Susan B. Anthony List, a group that provides political support for candidates who oppose abortion. "This is a major victory which will energize the grass roots as we head into the critical midterm elections.The proposed rule change — which was submitted to the Office of Management and Budget by the Health and Human Services Department Friday morning — will drop a requirement that Title X grant recipients provide abortion counseling to patients. But it will stop short of giving abortion foes one provision they sought: a gag rule prohibiting recipients from discussing abortion with pregnant women.
"The proposed rule could hit many of the front-line health providers for the nation’s poorest. About two-thirds of people who visit family planning services are below the federal poverty level, according to the National Family Planning and Reproductive Health Association."
Forget? The Republican way. Again, where are the Democrats? Neither party is worth a shit.
What took so long? NPR reports:
"Less than two weeks after Iowa adopted a law banning most abortions after about six weeks of pregnancy, Planned Parenthood and the ACLU of Iowa have filed suit, seeking to prevent the law from taking effect. Scheduled to take effect on July 1, Iowa's law is one of the most restrictive abortion measures in the U.S. The measure was signed by Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds on May 4, days after it was approved by the state legislature. As member station Iowa Public Radio has reported, the legislation imposes a ban on "most abortions after about six weeks into a pregnancy, with some exceptions for rape, incest, fetal abnormalities, and to save the life of the mother." Critics say that the law would make abortions illegal in cases where women may not yet have realized that they're pregnant. Iowa's current law allows most abortions up to 20 weeks into a pregnancy."
Direct violation of the First Amendment Establishment Clause, church-state separation, that is, freedom from religion.
"Not only is this law blatantly unconstitutional — it's extremely harmful to women," Planned Parenthood said in a statement about the lawsuit. The group says that Iowa's legislature ignored the legal rights guaranteed in the Supreme Court's Roe v. Wade decision, as well as Iowa's own constitution."
Nazism remains alive and well in the not-so-great state of Iowa. NPR reports:
"Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds signed one of the country's most restrictive abortion bills into law on Friday."
What nazi wouldn't?
"The so-called "heartbeat" legislation bans abortions once a fetal heartbeat has been detected, at about six weeks of pregnancy. Exceptions are made in cases of rape, incest or medical emergency."
'Generous' of these nazi's, isn't it?
"Republican state lawmakers worked late into the night this week to push the measure forward. During Tuesday's debate in the Statehouse, Rep. Sandy Salmon said, "A baby has become something we can throw away. This bill says it's time to change the way we think about unborn life."
Time for you goddamned nazis to stop imposing your outrageously perverse religious views on the rest of us by statute.
"I understand that not everyone will agree with this decision," Reynolds said in a written statement. "But if death is determined when a heart stops beating, then doesn't a beating heart indicate life? For me, it is immoral to stop an innocent beating heart."
What is immoral, Governor, is forcing your outrageously perverse religious views on all in direct violation of the First Amendment Establishment Clause, church-state separation, that is, freedom from religion.
"No Democrats voted for the bill. "This unconstitutional bill is nothing but a thinly veiled attack on Iowa women's most basic rights and freedoms — every woman deserves the fundamental right to make decisions about her own body with her doctor," Democratic National Committee women's media director Elizabeth Renda said in a written statement."
Raw nazism. Adolf Hitler, Benito Mussolini. Think these bastards aren't wildly cheering on their fiery perches? Delusionally believe abortion was legal in Nazi Germany, Fascist Italy?Wake up.
"At a rally on Friday at the Iowa State Capitol, Suzanna de Baca, president and CEO of Planned Parenthood of the Heartland, said the organization would file a lawsuit against the governor if she signed the bill. The organization tweeted, "We will fight like hell with everything we have." The American Civil Liberties Union also announced plans to sue with the Planned Parenthood Action Fund."
Republican nazis remain an exigent threat to life, liberty, all civil and constitutional rights and liberties.
"Reynolds knew that her signature would be incendiary. "I understand and anticipate that this will likely be challenged in court and that courts may even put a hold on the law until it reaches the Supreme Court," she said in the statement. "However, this is bigger than just a law. This is about life. I am not going to back down from who I am or what I believe in."
This is about raw nazism. Determined abrogation of liberty in the concerted effort to impose one's outrageously perverse religious views on all. Sadly, this Governor and others who think like her are an exigent threat to life, liberty, all civil and constitutional rights and liberties. When she placed her hand on the Bible to take the oath of office to uphold the United States Constitution, she lied.
ABC News reports:
"America's abortion clinics experienced a major upsurge in trespassing, obstruction and blockades by anti-abortion activists in 2017, according to an annual survey by an industry group. The National Abortion Federation report chronicled a litany of actions that ranged from coordinated trespassing efforts by abortion opponents, repeated brick-throwing at windows of a Cleveland clinic and an attempted bombing in Illinois. The report found that there was an overall decrease in acts of vandalism against clinics but a significant increase in activities aimed at disrupting services and intimidating patients and providers. Acts of trespassing increased from 247 in 2016 to 823 in 2017, instances of obstruction tripled to 1,704 and threats of death or other harm nearly doubled to 62."
Don't these goddamned hypocritical assholes claim to be Christians?
"The protesters are feeling emboldened by the political environment and seeing what they could get away with," said the federation's president, Vicki Saporta. "They want to make it more difficult to provide care, without going to very extreme forms of violence." The federation based its findings on monthly reports filed by its members who make up the vast majority of abortion clinics nationally. Many clinics across the U.S. routinely are targeted by legal picketing near their premises. But in some cases, the protests escalated and led to intervention by federal and law enforcement agencies."
Trump's determined effort to force his outrageously perverse religious views vis a vis abortion are falling flat in Kenya. NPR reports:
"On January 23, 2017, President Trump signed an executive order that bans U.S. aid to any health organization in another country that provides abortions, advocates or makes referrals for the procedure.
"But health groups that aren't complying with the policy are already feeling the effects. The U.S. has pulled the plug on funds that had been previously allocated but not yet spent prior to the Trump order. "Marie Stopes can talk about its own sad stories of programs that have had to close," says Newman-Williams. Its outreach services, which were funded by USAID in countries like Uganda, Kenya, Senegal, Madagascar, Pakistan and Myanmar, have already stopped, she says.
"That's the case for Family Health Options Kenya (FHOK), Kenya's oldest provider of sexual and reproductive health services. FHOK disagreed with the terms of the "Mexico City" policy, which has been reinstated by every Republican president since Reagan first issued it.
Rather than comply with the Trump nazi, a Kenyan clinic is walking away from $2 million. Think there are no dire consequences?
"Though abortion is legal under Kenyan law, some pregnant women and girls who now lack access to medical care because of the funding cuts are resorting to unsafe measures out of desperation. They visit "curtain clinics," she says — secret spaces run by people who aren't nurses or doctors — or use household items like crochet needles to terminate their pregnancies. The loss of funding has also jeopardized essential services which are unrelated to abortion — like cancer screening of reproductive organs, treatment for HIV, post-natal care and vaccinations for diseases."
Think this isn't aggressive stupidity on the part of the Trump nazi and his fellow Republican national socialists who support this bullshit? Get this:
"The funding policy — called the "global gag rule" by its critics — is meant to discourage abortion. But a Stanford University study makes the case that restricting family planning funds can lead to more abortions. Researchers analyzed survey data in 20 African countries between 1994 and 2008 and found that rates of induced abortions rose sharply in countries that were most affected by the rule. A report by Population Action International found that when the policy was in effect between 1984 to 1992, "there was no evidence that the policy reduced the incidence of abortion."
Why would it?
More of the same. Good to see lawsuits are being filed to fight the Trump nazi and his henchmen. NPR reports:
"Three national reproductive rights groups are suing the Trump administration, arguing that changes to the federal Title X program will put the health of millions of low-income patients at risk by prioritizing practices such as the rhythm method over comprehensive sexual health services. The two lawsuits being filed on Wednesday — one by Planned Parenthood and another by the National Family Planning & Reproductive Health Association and American Civil Liberties Union — focus on guidance issued in February by the Department of Health and Human Services Office of Population Affairs."
We're returning to the cave. Courtesy, of the Trump nazi and his fellow Republican national socialists.
Republican nazis continue to present an exigent threat to life, liberty, all civil and constitutional rights and liberties. -- While goddamned achingly useless Democrats remain out to lunch since November 22, 1963.
The Washington Post reports:
"A big Republican-wave election in 2010, after the election of Barack Obama, sharply increased GOP and conservative clout in states that remains today."
They're not 'conservative.' Goldwater was conservative. Not present-day Republicans. They're goddamned nazis. ... Right, Mr. 'President?'
"Since then, 33 states have passed laws to limit abortion."
In direct violation of Roe v. Wade and the United States Constitution. Determined abrogation of the First Amendment Establishment Clause, church-state separation, that is, freedom from religion. The Republican nazi element doesn't seem to understand if there is no reproductive freedom, there is no freedom of all.
Worse, GOP nazis remain too goddamned aggressively stupid to understand reproductive freedom is far, far, far more than a woman keeping her panties up and legs crossed. Supremely demonstrative of precisely how haughty, condescending, and patronizing the GOP nazi element determinedly remains. Ladies?
These goddamned fascists truly believe you're too damned stupid to make reproductive decisions for yourself. They'll make them for you. Wake up. Smarten up. Cut off your men until this shit ends. Let them 'pole vault' around until they smarten up. Join ranks. Force the issue. No longer tolerate this bullshit. ... Otherwise, get what you deserve. Forget? Stupidity and cowardice are always amply 'rewarded.'
"In Texas, an increasingly hostile environment for abortion providers contributed to the closures of 20 clinics, abortion rights groups said, about half those in the state. In the Republican strongholds of Mississippi and Kentucky, only one clinic is left."
Goddamned unconstitutional. Time to stand up to these hopelessly ignorant, achingly fascist, Republican assholes.
"In certain parts of the country, “It is unequivocally much harder now to access abortion care than any year since Roe v. Wade,” Northup said."
As intended by Republican nazis. In Texas and elsewhere, women seeking an abortion are forced by statute to endure a highly invasive trans-vaginal ultrasound. Doctors state it's medically unnecessary and consider it sexual assault they're forced by statute to impose on women seeking an abortion. Democrats continue to remain gutlessly out to lunch, -- since November 22, 1963.
"Elizabeth Nash, the state policy analyst at Guttmacher, said abortion services are increasingly out of reach for many women because of the distance they would have to travel to a clinic and cost. Women in Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi and other states have a far harder time than those in West Coast and in many parts of New England, where ending an unwanted pregnancy is easier and cheaper."
As precisely intended by Republican nazis. Exactly, why Adolf and Benito are 'high-fiving' from their fiery perches. Raw nazism in a goddamned de facto fascist police-state quickly transitioning to the Trump nazi's Fourth Reich. Wake up.
"About 75 percent of women who seek abortions are poor or have a low income, according to Guttmacher. “Roe has already fallen in the practical sense for many women,” said Copeland of the abortion rights group in Ohio. “They are forced to continue pregnancy, sometimes even if it’s not what is best for their health, because they cannot get past the travel and financial hurdles.”
As clearly intended by Republican nazis. ... Right, Mr. 'President?'
Resistance. To insanity. NBC reports:
"Kentucky’s new law banning a common procedure for second-trimester abortions was temporarily put on hold when a federal judge signed an order setting the stage for another courtroom battle between the state and the American Civil Liberties Union. Under the joint consent order signed late Thursday, state officials agreed to take no action to enforce the law pending a ruling on the ACLU’s request for a preliminary injunction."
-- A fight against Republican nazis hellbent on forcing their outrageously perverse ideological and religious views on all. ... In direct violation of the First Amendment Establishment Clause, church-state separation, that is, freedom from religion.
“This brings immediate relief to women across Kentucky who have had their appointments canceled and care delayed if not pushed entirely out of reach,” Andrew Beck, senior staff attorney for the ACLU Reproductive Freedom Project, said Friday. “In the meantime, we’ll continue to fight this law and look forward to seeing the state in court.”
Nazism must be fought. Tooth and nail.
When there is no reproductive freedom, there is no freedom at all. According to the hopelessly ignorant, aggressively stupid Nazi Right, reproductive freedom is no more than ladies keeping their panties up, legs crossed. No longer flies in Nazi Mississippi, however. They're fighting back. Determined to stand up to this goddamned bullshit. NPR reports:
"Abortion-rights advocates are challenging dozens of Mississippi's abortion restrictions in federal court. The state's Republican governor, Phil Bryant, recently signed the most restrictive abortion law in the country, banning abortion after 15 weeks' gestation. Last month, in response to a suit from the Center for Reproductive Rights, a judge quickly moved to temporarily block the 15-week abortion ban in the state. A newly expanded lawsuit filed by CRR, the Mississippi Center for Justice and other local attorneys challenges what advocates say are unconstitutional barriers to Mississippi women seeking abortions. In the lawsuit, advocates call the new law "only the most recent salvo in what has been a 25-year legislative campaign to eliminate women's constitutional right to access abortion in Mississippi."
Outrageously, unconstitutional. Nazis forcing their perverse ideological and religious views on all by statute. Direct violation of the First Amendment Establishment Clause, church-state separation, that is, freedom from religion.
"Among the restrictions named in the suit are a 24-hour waiting period for women seeking the procedure; a ban on physicians using telemedicine to provide abortion consultation or dispense medication abortions; and rules known as "TRAP" laws that abortion-rights attorneys say place unnecessarily cumbersome health and safety regulations on facilities that provide abortions (in 2016, the U.S. Supreme Court struck down similar rules in Texas). The suit's lead plaintiff is Jackson Women's Health Organization, the only clinic providing abortions in Mississippi. Speaking with reporters by phone, clinic owner Diane Derzis said women are forced to make repeated trips to her facility to obtain the procedure. "These laws are designed for one purpose only, and that's to put us out of business as well as removing a woman's right to decide her future," Derzis said."
That's right. Precisely, the intention of these goddamned nazis.
"In a press release, CRR President and CEO Nancy Northup says there is a "coordinated strategy to undermine or eliminate women's constitutional rights to legal abortion with deceptive laws and unnecessary regulations" in Mississippi."
Not only there, but here in Nazi Texas as well. Elsewhere throughout our formerly great country. Raw nazism. Concerted attack on reproductive freedom by nazis determined to force their fascist religious views on all by statute.
"In Bryant's 2014 State of the State address, he announced a goal "to end abortion in Mississippi." When he signed the 15-week ban last month, Bryant tweeted, "I am committed to making Mississippi the safest place in America for an unborn child."
This man is no more than an outrageously haughty nazi determined to force his outrageously perverse religious views on all. This fascist son of a bitch is out of uniform. No swastika armband.
The Nazi Right continues to shamelessly lie about efficacy and safety of abortion procedures in a desperate attempt to force its outrageously perverse ideological and religious views on all. Think not? Wake up. NPR reports:
"Abortions in the United States are safe and have few complications, according to a landmark new study by the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine."
Religious fascists falsely claim otherwise in a desperate attempt to impose their perverse religious views on all.
"The report, called "The Safety and Quality of Abortion Care in the United States," examined the four major methods used for abortions — medication, aspiration, dilation and evacuation, and induction — and examined women's care from before they had the procedure through their follow-up care. "I would say the main takeaway is that abortions that are provided in the United States are safe and effective," says Ned Calonge, the co-chair of the committee that wrote the study. He's an associate professor of family medicine and epidemiology at the University of Colorado and CEO of The Colorado Trust. Calonge says the researchers found that about 90 percent of all abortions happen in the first 12 weeks of pregnancy. And complications for all abortions are "rare," the report says."
The Right falsely claims otherwise. Restrictions imposed by Republican fascists, practicing medicine without a license, endanger women:
"But the report did find that state laws and regulations can interfere with safe abortions. "Abortion specific regulations in many states create barriers to safe and effective care," the report says. Calonge says those rules often have no basis in medical research."
They're based on the religious views of nazi legislators determined to impose their perverse ideological and religious views on all. Direct violation of the First Amendment Establishment Clause, church-state separation, that is, freedom from religion.
"There are some requirements that require clinicians to misinform women of the health risks, that say you have to inform a woman that an abortion will increase her risk of breast cancer," he says. There is no evidence that breast cancer follows abortion, for example, but five states require doctors to tell women there is a link, according to the Guttmacher Institute, a research group that focuses on reproductive and sexual health."
Doctors are forced to lie by nazi legislators determined to force their religious views on all in direct violation of their oaths of office to protect and defend the United States Constitution. Traitors.
"There are policies that mandate clinically unnecessary services like pre-abortion ultrasounds, separate inpatient counseling. There are required waiting periods," Calonge says."
All to make it as difficult and expensive as possible to obtain an abortion.
"According to Guttmacher, 27 states make women wait at least 24 hours for an abortion and 11 states require women to have an ultrasound before they can terminate their pregnancy."
Doctors object to transvaginal ultrasounds for two major reasons. First, they're unnecessary. The nazi element delusionally, condescendingly, patronizingly believes if a woman sees the image of the unborn child she will decline the abortion. Horse shit. They know exactly, precisely why they want the abortion before arriving. Have thought about it hard and long before seeking the procedure. Many refuse to view the image. Second, doctors object to these unnecessary ultrasounds because they are invasive, amount to sexual assault since they are not necessary.
"And there are state laws that dictate who can perform abortions and where they can do them. Some require all abortions to happen in the equivalent of a hospital or surgery center. Others require a doctor to have admitting privileges at a nearby hospital."
All unnecessary. All imposed to make it as difficult and expensive as possible to obtain an abortion.
"The National Academies report says waiting periods and requirements for unnecessary tests can result in long delays because women may have to travel to get care and have trouble getting appointments. "Delays put the patient at greater risk of an adverse event," the report says."
Wouldn't want to confuse condescending, patronizing, goddamned Republican nazis with the truth, would we?
"Hal Lawrence, the CEO of the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, says the report settles the debate over abortion-restricting laws and regulations. "Those sorts of laws have been totally debunked," he says. He says the study shows most of those laws do nothing to improve women's health. "Abortion is safer when it's performed earlier in gestation," Lawrence says. "And so delaying and making people wait and go through hoops of unnecessary, extra procedures does not improve the safety. And actually by having them delay, can actually worsen the safety."
So when a religious nazi does all he or she can to abrogate the right to abortion, know full well it's not based on science, but on warped religion.
Nazism is alive and well in Mississippi. In follow up to a recent edition, CBS News reports:
"Mississippi's governor has signed the nation's tightest abortion restrictions into law. Republican Gov. Phil Bryant signed House Bill 1510 on Monday afternoon. It becomes law immediately and bans most abortions after 15 weeks' gestation. Bryant has frequently said he wants Mississippi to be the "safest place in America for an unborn child."
This goddamned nazi and his equally fascist compadres remain more than willing to force their outrageously perverse ideological and religious views on all. In direct violation of the First Amendment Establishment Clause, church-state separation, that is, freedom from religion.
"The law's only exceptions are if a fetus has health problems making it "incompatible with life" outside of the womb at full term, or if a pregnant woman's life or a "major bodily function" is threatened by pregnancy. Pregnancies resulting from rape and incest aren't exempted."
Re-read the last quote. Get raped and impregnated by anyone including a family member such as your father or brother, guess what? The nazi element in the Republican Party will force you to carry it to term in Nazi Mississippi.
"Abortion rights advocates are calling the law unconstitutional because it limits abortion before fetuses can live outside the womb. The owner of Mississippi's only abortion clinic opposes the law and has pledged to sue."
Wake up, ladies. Need to cross your legs in Mississippi, cut off your men until this insanity ends.
In follow up, CBS News reports:
"A federal judge on Tuesday temporarily blocked a new Mississippi law that bans abortions after 15 weeks' gestation -- the most restrictive abortion law in the United States. The law took effect as soon as Republican Gov. Phil Bryant signed it Monday. The state's only abortion clinic, Jackson Women's Health Organization, quickly sued the state, arguing the law is unconstitutional because it bans abortion weeks before a fetus can survive outside the womb. U.S. District Judge Carlton Reeves heard arguments Tuesday before granting the clinic's immediate request for a temporary restraining order that would block the law during the legal fight."
"The Supreme Court says every woman has a constitutional right to 'personal privacy' regarding her body," Reeves wrote in a brief decision that quoted previous legal rulings on abortion. "That right protects her choice 'to have an abortion before viability.' States cannot 'prohibit any woman from making the ultimate decision' to do so." Reeves said in court that the "ultimate question" is whether a state can ban abortion before viability. He asked: "Does the state have the right to trump the woman's right to have control over her decisions, over her body?" Reeves did not rule from the bench but granted the temporary restraining order about an hour later, noting that lawyers for the clinic said a woman who is at least 15 weeks pregnant was scheduled to have an abortion Tuesday afternoon."
More to come as this story develops.
More of the same, only worse. NPR reports:
"After a federal judge put the brakes on Ohio's latest abortion restrictions, a group of Republican lawmakers is trying to take a step even further: banning all abortions in Ohio. Under a bill introduced Monday, HB 565, the state would prohibit abortions even in cases of rape, incest or danger to a woman's life. The proposal would allow criminal charges against both doctors and pregnant women seeking abortions and would characterize an "unborn human" as a person under Ohio's criminal code regarding homicide. That means abortions could be punishable by life in prison or even the death penalty."
All courtesy of nazi Republicans in the not-so-great state of Ohio.
"NARAL Pro-Choice Ohio criticized the proposal, calling it an obvious attempt to give the U.S. Supreme Court a chance to overturn Roe v. Wade, the 1973 decision providing the right to have an abortion. "Anti-choice extremists from the Ohio Statehouse to the White House are lining up their dominoes to topple Roe v. Wade and punish those who seek or provide abortion care," said executive director Kellie Copeland in a press release. The measure was sponsored by state Reps. Ron Hood and Nino Vitale, and 18 more House Republicans signed on."
A raucous, boot clicking, goose stepping, treasonous, treacherous, traitorous Sieg Heil!, you nazi bastards. You're out of uniform. Where are your swastika armbands? Traitors.
Moving backwards in Nazi Mississippi. NBC News reports:
"Mississippi lawmakers on Thursday passed what is likely to be the nation’s most restrictive abortion law, making the procedure illegal after 15 weeks of pregnancy."
Shameless nazis determined to force their outrageously perverse religious views on all in direct violation of the First Amendment Establishment Clause, church-state separation, that is, freedom from religion.
"The House voted 75-34 in favor of the measure, and Gov. Phil Bryant has said he will sign it."
Direct violation of their oaths of office to protect and defend the United States Constitution.
"The owner of Mississipi's only abortion clinic has said she'll sue if the bill goes into law — a move lawmakers not only know to expect, but seem to be encouraging, in hopes of eventually getting the nation's highest court to revisit its rulings and allow states to begin restricting abortion earlier in pregnancy. "It seems like a pretty simple bill designed to test the viability line that the Supreme Court has drawn," said David Forte, a law professor at Ohio's Cleveland State University."
If there is no reproductive freedom, there is no freedom. Freedom to do what you're told is no freedom at all. Hear the rumble? An unwanted dreaded second American revolution catastrophically looming.
"An appeals court in 2015 struck down efforts in North Dakota to ban most abortions after six weeks, when a fetus develops a detectable heartbeat, and in Arkansas after 12 weeks. Abortion rights supporters are dubious that the outcome in Mississippi would be any different. "The Supreme Court has said and resaid again and again that states cannot prohibit women from obtaining abortions prior to viability, which is what a 15-week ban would do," said Hillary Schneller, staff attorney for the Center for Reproductive Rights. The New York-based group, which advocates for free access to abortion, called the bill unconstitutional and “medically unsound.”
It is. Not only that, the nazi U.S. Supreme Court seems to have conveniently ignored the fact a woman owns HER uterus, not the goddamned state. Ferociously pointedly, who the hell is this government to force a woman to bring an unborn fetus, that is, a baby to term? Egregious display of unbridled Aryan arrogance by the nazis on the Supreme Court to presume they have the right to do precisely that.
Growing dissent on the Far Right. Couldn't be, could it? LOL. The Statesman reports:
"Bishops direct Catholic churches and schools to refrain from working with Texas Right to Life. Group conducts misleading attacks on politicians, misrepresents Catholic positions, bishops’ directive says. Exposing a deep and widening rift in the state’s energetic anti-abortion movement, the Catholic bishops of Texas have directed churches across the state to refrain from working with Texas Right to Life, which bills itself as the “oldest and largest statewide pro-life organization.”
Stunning, isn't it? Clearly, trouble in paradise. LOL.
"According to a written directive, Texas Right to Life has engaged in misleading attacks against political candidates, lied about the Catholic Church’s position on legislation at the state Capitol and opposed church-supported bills by arguing that they don’t go far enough to limit abortions. “We’ve asked our pastors, parishes and Catholic schools to refrain from asking (Texas Right to Life representatives) to come onto our premises because their teachings don’t always align with what the Catholic Church teaches regarding certain life issues,” said Bishop Joe Vásquez, head of the 25-county Diocese of Austin. The one-page written advisory from the Texas Catholic Conference of Bishops, which sets policy for the parishes serving the state’s 8.3 million Catholics, was released Thursday and distributed across the Austin Diocese on Friday."
Apparently, the Nazi Right has taken national socialism a bit too far to the right, -- even for the Catholic Church. LOL.
For those who believe women have the right to do with THEIR uterus as they damn well please, the following is indeed encouraging:
"On one side are Texas Right to Life and its close associate, Empower Texans. Fueled by social and religious conservatives, the groups have adopted a take-no-prisoners approach at the Capitol, particularly when it comes to attacking organizations and politicians that oppose or decline to fully support their priorities. Both groups have targeted House Speaker Joe Straus, R-San Antonio, who is retiring, and other centrist Republicans, saying they have blocked abortion limits and other favored legislation for too long. On the other side are groups that Right to Life and Empower Texans have denigrated as “fake pro-life organizations” — including the Catholic Conference of Bishops, Texas Alliance for Life and the Texans for Life Coalition."
When nazis fight among themselves, makes it far, far more difficult for them to eviscerate the Constitution.
"Kyleen Wright, president of the Texans for Life Coalition, said the bishops’ decision to call out Right to Life for its bullying tactics was a watershed moment for the movement. “This is really big,” Wright said. “It’s very, very unfortunate that it came to this. But for our organization, and me personally, to be maligned and slandered for several years, and for our candidates and people who work in good faith to advance good policy down in Austin to be unfairly and maliciously attacked, that hasn’t been good for our movement, either. “It’s very difficult, this type of family war,” she said."
Hopefully, this will weaken the nazi movement in our formerly great country. Give the public more time to fully understand the exigent threat to life, liberty, all civil and constitutional rights and liberties posed by the Trump nazi's Fourth Reich. All this is much more than just a 'culture war.' Direct threat to freedom.
Trump and his henchmen have again put perverse GOP religious and ideological views ahead of their oaths of office to uphold the United States Constitution. ABC News reports:
"The Trump administration has adopted a new strategy for how it issues tens of millions of dollars in federal family-planning grants, giving preference to groups that stress abstinence and making it harder for Planned Parenthood to do business."
Clearly, Republican nazis delusionally believe unwanted pregnancy preferable to safe family planning by medical providers.
"Major reproductive health organizations are voicing serious concerns about changes that the president of the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists on Monday described as turning "back the clock on women's health."
Dangerously quaint, isn't it?
"Dr. Haywood Brown depicted the shift as part of the administration's "continued move away from scientific, evidence-based policies and toward unscientific ideologies."
Voodoo 'science' courtesy of the Nazi Right firmly planted on the GOP tit.
"The catalyst for the criticism was an announcement Friday by the Department of Health and Human Services of its guidelines and priorities for the next round of Title X grant applications, projected to total about $260 million. The new HHS document makes repeated favorable mention of "natural family planning" — which encompasses the rhythm method and other strategies for avoiding pregnancy without using contraceptives like the birth-control pill. According to HHS, of 100 couples each year that use natural family planning methods, up to 25 women may become pregnant."
Back in the day, used to be called 'Catholic Roulette.' Yet, nazis on the Right won't be confused with the truth, right, Mr. 'President?'
"Planned Parenthood, which currently serves about 1.6 million of the 4 million beneficiaries of Title X, expressed concern that the guidelines were crafted to reduce or eliminate its role in the program."
Trump, his henchmen, and fellow nazis in the GOP present an exigent threat to life, liberty, all civil and constitutional rights and liberties.
"It reads as them trying to stack the deck against any specialized reproductive health provider," said Planned Parenthood spokeswoman Erica Sackin."
No question, that's the aim. Return to the cave. By national socialists in the Republican Party.
"Planned Parenthood has been the target of repeated attempts by the administration and congressional Republicans to cut off its federal funding and weaken its nationwide operations because it provides abortions."
Direct violation of the First Amendment Establishment Clause, church-state separation, that is, freedom from religion.
Women and girls deliberately placed at risk by a deliberately imposed religious agenda:
"Clare Coleman, CEO of the National Family Planning & Reproductive Health Association, expressed concern that HHS might be shifting priorities in a way that would disrupt the steady progress in reducing the U.S. rate of teen pregnancies and unintended pregnancies. "We know different administrations have had different approaches," she said. "But if this announcement indicates a deliberate shift away from Title X being strongly focused on increasing access to contraceptive care to a model more focused on behavior change ... that would be a significant concern to public health." Haywood Brown said his obstetrician/gynecologists group had hoped the Trump administration would adhere to long-established, evidence-based Title X practices. Instead, he said, the changes "will effectively block Title X patients from the qualified providers of their choice, steering them toward organizations or providers singularly focused on abstinence and fertility awareness methods — political interference at its worst."
The American Civil Liberties Union has stepped up. In follow up to a story covered here and elsewhere, NPR reports:
"The American Civil Liberties Union of Ohio filed a complaint Thursday on behalf of several abortion providers seeking to block a state law that bans abortions "because an unborn child has or may have Down Syndrome." Governor John Kasich signed House Bill 214 into law late last year, although it is not scheduled to take effect until March 23, 2018. The legislation makes it a felony for a provider to perform an abortion or try to when there is any "reason to believe that an unborn child has Down syndrome," including a prenatal test. The physician could also have his or her medical license revoked under the law."
None of the goddamned government's business. Nor is it the business of the Nazi Religious Right. Forget? Not their uterus. Not their call to dictate what a woman can and cannot do with HER uterus.
"The lawsuit, filed on behalf of abortion providers including Preterm Cleveland and Planned Parenthood, says the legislation is unconstitutional, violating "the very heart of the Fourteenth Amendment right to privacy and autonomy." It says the legislation also undermines the mission of physicians "to honor and support the decisions their patients make." The plaintiffs are asking the United States District Court for the Southern District of Ohio to issue a permanent injunction."
Nazism has to be stood up to. Ferociously, but peacefully, resisted.
"The anti-abortion rights group Ohio Right to Life, which campaigned for the bill, says, "While elective abortion is never the right choice, it's particularly egregious that unborn children can be denied life simply due to the presence of a disability."
Not your uterus. None of your goddamned business. Who the hell are you hypocritical nazi bastards to force your achingly perverse religious and ideological views on the rest of us? Direct violation of the First Amendment Establishment Clause, church-state separation, this is, freedom from religion.
"But Freda Levenson, legal director for the ACLU of Ohio says the ban is "a thinly-veiled attempt to criminalize abortion in Ohio."
That's exactly what it is.
"If Ohio politicians wanted to proactively take a stance for people with disabilities, they should improve access to health care, education, or other services," she said in a statement."
Precisely, what the problem is with nazis in the Republican Party. They're extremely quick to force their goddamned outrageously perverse ideological and religious views on all. Line the pockets of their corporate masters who in turn line theirs. Fervently cut back and/or eviscerate social programs designed to help the bottom and middle class.
Yet, when it comes to mandating a livable wage by law that would ameliorate the need for such programs, the hypocritical, achingly gutless bastards run the other way. Depend on slave labor to line the pockets of their masters in the corporate management suite and the top of the food chain, who in turn, line theirs.
In a related matter, NPR reports:
"The mother-daughter pair spent an entire Saturday holed up at a local high school talking about relationships, love and, yes, sex. The five-hour seminar called Linking Families and Teens, or LiFT, included group discussions and role-playing to help parents and kids get comfortable talking about dating and sex. "It was almost instantly that I felt that I could talk to my daughter in a different way, without automatically jumping to assumptions or, you know, just cutting her off and being angry or being embarrassed," Liles says. LiFT is the only sex education program available in her rural community of Shelton, Wash., she says. But come July, LiFT will be gone. The Trump administration cut off the grant funding for it when the Department of Health and Human Services eliminated the Teen Pregnancy Prevention Program."
Amazing, isn't it? What's the Trump nazi's agenda? More teen pregnancy?
"LiFT is sponsored by Planned Parenthood of the Great Northwest and the Hawaiian Islands, one of 84 organizations losing federal funding that was supposed to last until 2020. Now the Planned Parenthood chapter, along with eight other groups, is suing HHS, saying it acted unlawfully when it canceled their five-year grants midstream and with no explanation. The organizations — which include city and county health departments, universities, hospitals and nonprofit organizations — operate across the U.S. providing sex education and health information to more than a million teens. The Teen Pregnancy Prevention Program has been lauded by watchdogs as an example of good government at work. The program grants 80 percent of its budget to groups that implement pregnancy prevention programs that have been shown to be effective. The remaining 20 percent is dedicated to trying new strategies. The efforts are focused on African-American and Hispanic teens, who have higher pregnancy rates, and those in low-income and rural areas. And the organizations are required to measure whether their programs are effective in reducing pregnancy, delaying teen sex or increasing contraception use. The plans was to scale up the projects that work and eliminate the ones that don't. "There's a list of proven effective programs that has been developed over time specifically through a lot of these grants," says Carrie Flaxman, counsel for Planned Parenthood."
Can't have that, can we? Trump and his fellow nazis in the Republican Party delusionally believe in abstinence-only:
"Trump's budget proposal instead has $75 million for abstinence education programs. Research has shown that "abstinence-only education rarely has a positive effect on teen sexual behavior," according to a 2014 analysis of sex education. Teen pregnancy rates have plummeted in the three decades from about 60 births per 1,000 girls ages 15 to 19, to just 24 in 2014. Still, the U.S. has a far higher teen pregnancy and birthrate than most developed countries."
'Can fix ignorant, can't fix stupid.' ... Right, Mr. 'President?'
This is no more than egregious abrogation of the First Amendment Establishment Clause, church-state separation, that is, freedom from religion.
Trump has once again disgraced himself and our formerly great country. ABC News reports:
"President Donald Trump's dramatic expansion of a ban on U.S. funding to foreign organizations that promote or provide abortions has left impoverished women around the world without treatment for HIV, malaria and other diseases, health groups say, calling it "devastating" because Trump went where no administration had gone before."
What nazi hasn't?
"Trump in his first working day in office revived the so-called global gag rule. He expanded on previous versions so that for the first time foreign NGOs that even discuss abortion as an option are barred not only from about $575 million in U.S. family planning funds but also an estimated $8.8 billion in U.S. global health aid. And they must certify that none of their non-U.S. funding goes for abortion-related activities."
Trump and his sick sycophants don't believe you own your own uterus, ladies. They do. Both here and abroad.
Not only that, the nazi in the Oval Office intends to protect health providers who deny you services because of their outrageously perverse ideological and religious views. NPR reports:
"Health care workers who want to refuse to treat patients because of religious or moral beliefs will have a new defender in the Trump administration. The top civil rights official at the Department of Health and Human Services is creating the Division of Conscience and Religious Freedom to protect doctors, nurses and other health care workers who refuse to take part in procedures like abortion or treat certain people because of moral or religious objections."
This achingly ignorant asshole seems to have conveniently forgotten providing health care is not a right, but a privilege.
"Never forget that religious freedom is a primary freedom, that it is a civil right that deserves enforcement and respect," said Roger Severino, the director of HHS's Office for Civil Rights, at a ceremony to announce the new division."
Horse shit. Got it ass backwards, fool. You have absolutely no clue or regard for all civil and constitutional rights and liberties. None.
Contrast the above with the following. Took uncommon valor. Certainly, back in the day. NPR reports:
"The sign said, 'Pregnant? Don't Want to Be? Call Jane.' And a phone number," Willis remembers. "So, I called." "If you really care about something, you have to act on it." "Jane" was an underground network in Chicago that counseled and helped women who wanted to have abortions. The service was launched in 1965 by Heather Booth, then a 19-year-old student at the University of Chicago. Her friend's sister was pregnant and desperately wanted an abortion. Booth found a doctor who was willing to perform the procedure secretly."
Sad, isn't it? -- That it was indeed illegal back in the day to be master of your own uterus. Precisely, what Republican nazis are so desperate to return to.
"More calls started coming in. "By the third call, I realized I couldn't manage it on my own," Booth says. "So I set up a system. We called it 'Jane.' "At first, Jane connected women with doctors. But eventually, the group's members started performing abortions themselves. With time, Jane grew into an all-women network with dozens of members, ranging from students to housewives."
Jesus Christ. Sounds remarkably similar to what nazi Republican legislators do in the Texas Legislature, doesn't it? That is, practice medicine without a license. Certainly, legislatively instruct doctors what they can and cannot do vis a vis abortion procedures. These outrageous fascist bastards in the Legislature certainly believe they know what's best for the 'lil lady,' don't they?
"Martha Scott was 28 at the time and a stay-at-home mom with four children under the age of 5. She was motivated to join Jane because she felt women who wanted an abortion deserved to have a safe and inexpensive option. The fact that it was illegal did not deter her. "I just thought, if you really care about something, you have to act on it," Scott says."
Must really irk Republican nazis in the Legislature who truly wish to keep the 'lil lady' barefoot, pregnant, and in the kitchen. -- Remarkably, to this very day. LOL.
"The dangers faced by women seeking abortions in the pre-Roe v. Wade era are well-documented. In 1930, abortion was listed as the official cause of death for almost 2,700 women in the United States, though there were likely many more unrecorded mortalities. After antibiotics were introduced in the 1940s, the number of women dying from illegal abortions dropped dramatically. However, every year, thousands of women continued to be admitted to hospitals nationwide for complications of illegal abortions."
The Trump nazi, his henchmen, and others in the Republican Party desperately want a return to yesteryear, the days of the back alley abortion.
"The women of Jane ran a finely tuned operation. "It was very clandestine and secretive," according to Leslie J. Reagan, a professor of history at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign and the author of When Abortion Was a Crime. When women called Jane, they would hear an answering machine message asking for their phone number, name and the date of their last period. A member of Jane would then call them back and set up a meeting to discuss the procedure. "There were lots of points along the way where they could have said, 'No, I change my mind,' " says Scott. "I don't think anyone chooses to have an abortion lightly."
No woman wanting an abortion should ever be denied the services of licensed healthcare providers in a safe setting. Republicans desperately want the opposite.
"In the seven years Jane was active, the group performed approximately 11,000 first- and second-trimester abortions. No deaths were ever reported of women who had abortions through Jane."
Stunning, isn't it? Why would Republicans ever want to return to those days?
"For years, Jane operated under the radar of the Chicago police. But in 1972, two Catholic women walked into a police station, reporting that their sister-in-law was planning to have an abortion. "To them, 1) it was a sin, and 2) they didn't want a child killed. That's how they felt," says Ted O'Connor, the then-31-year-old homicide detective who was put on the case."
It was none of their goddamned business.
"O'Connor and his partner tracked Jane to an apartment in Chicago's South Shore neighborhood. Scott vividly remembers when the police arrived. "They came in and looked around and said, 'Where's the doctor?' Looking for the guy, but there wasn't any guy, there was just us," she says. The policemen took all the women into custody, and they were charged with 11 counts of abortion and conspiracy to commit abortion."
Clearly, the women knew the risk. Took a chance helping their sisters abort. Willingly, paid the price. The true crime was not an unlicensed provider and illegal abortion, it was the fact abortions were against the law.
"Looking back, O'Connor has no qualms about arresting the women, who were breaking the law. But he says he can see both sides of the issue. "My side is I don't want to see a life destroyed. That life is helpless, it has no choice in this. And that angers me," he says. "On the other hand, I've never been pregnant. And never will be. It's a tough issue."
First, this officer demonstratively epitomizes an exigent 'police mentality' sadly in existence to this very day. -- Despite the fact he is most unusual in the fact he acknowledges he has no clue what it's like to be pregnant. LOL. Second, the woman's right to do as she pleases with HER uterus trumps the non-existent rights of the fetus, that is, unborn child. If not, there is no liberty. No more than a facade. The freedom to do what you're told, -- which is no liberty at all.
"The arrests occurred while abortion laws were being debated on the national stage. Beginning in 1970, Alaska, Hawaii, New York and Washington repealed their anti-abortion laws. Six months after Jane was busted, on Jan. 22, 1973, the U.S. Supreme Court legalized abortion in the United States with their decision in Roe v. Wade. The charges against Jane were dropped. Ultimately, Roe vs. Wade brought an end to Jane because women then had access to legal abortion providers."
At least, these women at Jane apparently knew what they were doing. Unlike during the days of the coat hanger 'abortion' era. A return to those days of the back alley abortion will never be tolerated in this country. No question, the Nazi Right will lose this fight.
Once again, another nazi Republican governor has disgraced himself.
NBC News reports:
"Ohio is prohibiting doctors from performing abortions based on a diagnosis of Down syndrome, joining other states with similarly strict legislation."
Direct violation of Roe v. Wade by Republican nazis desperate to impose their outrageously perverse religious and ideological views on all in direct violation of the First Amendment Establishment Clause, church-state separation, that is, freedom from religion.
"Republican Gov. John Kasich signed the legislation into law on Friday. Lawmakers had sent the bill to him earlier this month, in one of their last acts of the year."
Deliberate violation of the woman's right to do with her uterus as she damn well pleases.
"The legislation, which cleared the GOP-led Legislature with some Republican opposition, makes it a crime for a doctor to terminate a pregnancy based on knowledge of Down syndrome, a genetic abnormality that causes developmental delays and medical conditions such as heart defects and respiratory and hearing problems."
Why are these goddamned religious nazis practicing medicine without a license?
"It makes performing an abortion in such cases a fourth-degree felony and requires the state medical board to revoke the physician's license if convicted. Pregnant women involved in such procedures won't be penalized."
No, they'll just be denied the right to abort, period. So Republican nazis can impose their religious views on all. In a goddamned de facto fascist police-state, soon to be the Trump nazi's Fourth Reich.
"Kasich's action was a victory for the anti-abortion group Ohio Right to Life, which argued it will prevent discrimination based on misinformation."
It's none of their goddamned business. Not their uterus. Who the hell are these religious nazis to force their outrageously perverse religious views on anyone other than themselves? Here is the Aryan arrogance of these goddamned nazis in all its 'glory':
"Now that the Down Syndrome Non-Discrimination Act is law, unborn babies prenatally diagnosed with Down syndrome are given a shot at life" the group's president, Mike Gonidakis, said in a statement Friday."
Not their call:
"Abortion rights groups argued the law would be another blow to women's constitutional right to legal abortion."
Precisely, the intention of Republican nazis.
"The executive director of NARAL Pro-Choice Ohio, Kellie Copeland, said the law does nothing to support families taking care of loved ones with Down syndrome but instead "exploits them as part of a larger anti-choice strategy to systematically make all abortion care illegal."
Exactly, right. Their intention is to dictate to the 'little lady' what she can and cannot do with HER uterus. Nazi America.
"This law shames women and will have a chilling effect on the conversations between doctors and patients because of the criminal penalties that doctors will face," Copeland said. A statement from the American Civil Liberties Union of Ohio on Friday said Kasich signed a "blatantly unconstitutional bill." The civil rights group said it is coordinating with its legal staff and coalition partners to determine the next steps."
Continue to sue the living shit out of the nazi bastards. Fight them every step of the way. Only alternative? Unthinkable. An unwanted dreaded second American revolution catastrophically looming. Hear the rumble?
Once again, the Trump nazi and his henchmen have taken a hard dump on the constitutional right to abortion.
"A federal judge on Monday ordered the Trump administration to allow two pregnant immigrant teenagers in U.S. custody to obtain abortions. U.S. District Judge Tanya Chutkan said the Republican administration can't prevent the 17-year-old girls from exercising their right to an abortion. Hours later, the Trump administration asked the Supreme Court to block one of the abortions."
Roe v. Wade is abundantly clear. Trump is again abrogating his falsely sworn oath to protect and defend the United States Constitution.
"Both girls arrived in the country as unaccompanied minors and are being held in federal shelters, though it is not known precisely where. The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) went to court on behalf of the two girls, as it did in the case of another 17-year-old girl who was able to obtain an abortion in October following a high-profile court fight."
The public is entitled to know precisely where these women are being held. Public information. No secret gulags in a supposed democratic republic.
"The judge's decision is a reminder that both the law and justice are on our side. We've already seen the courts rule in favor of Jane Doe, and today justice prevailed for two more young women like her," Brigitte Amiri, senior staff attorney with the ACLU Reproductive Freedom Project, said in a statement after Chutkan's decision. "Unfortunately, the Trump administration has shown no indication that they'll abandon their cruel and dystopian crusade to block abortion access for some of the most marginalized people in our country. We're prepared to keep fighting for as long as we need to."
Never, ever, never give up. Direct abrogation of the First Amendment Establishment Clause, church-state separation, that is, freedom from religion.
"The current controversy stems from the Trump administration's opposition to abortion and its decision to change the policy of the Obama administration concerning minors who are detained trying to enter the country. Earlier this year, the office in the Health and Human Services Department that oversees the shelters prohibited them from taking steps to facilitate an abortion without its direct approval. The cases intersect two of the most controversial issues for the Trump administration — abortion and illegal immigration. One teen is about 10 weeks pregnant, and the other is now about 22 weeks pregnant. The girl "is quickly approaching the limit for abortion in the state where she is being detained," the ACLU argued in its lawsuit."
What we have in the Oval Office is a nazi fuhrer who falsely believes he is a law unto himself.
"Scott Lloyd, the head of the HHS office that oversees the shelters, said in an email that facilities under HHS "should not be supporting abortion services pre or post-release," but rather "life-affirming options counseling."
Direct violation of the First Amendment Establishment Clause, as well as Roe v. Wade.
"Chutkan said the HHS office continues to claim "ultimate authority to unilaterally veto the reproductive choices of the unaccompanied minors in its custody."
The nazi son of a bitch does not have the authority to violate the First Amendment as well as Roe v. Wade.
The Trump nazi and his henchmen are also waging war on the right to contraception. CBS News reports:
"A federal judge in Philadelphia on Friday ordered the Trump administration not to enforce new rules that could significantly reduce women's access to free birth control. Judge Wendy Beetlestone issued the injunction, temporarily stopping the government from enforcing the policy change to former President Barack Obama's health care law. The law required most companies to cover birth control at no additional cost, though it included exemptions for religious organizations. The new policy would allow more categories of employers, including publicly traded companies, to opt out of providing free contraception to women by claiming religious or moral objections. Beetlestone, appointed to the bench by Obama, wrote in her ruling that the rule "conjured up a world where a government entity is empowered to impose its own version of morality on each one of us. That cannot be right."
Republican nazis in Texas lost another round in court. NPR reports:
"A federal judge in Texas has overturned a ban on a commonly used second trimester abortion procedure, dealing another blow to efforts to restrict abortion in that state."
Excellent. Who the hell is the state to dictate to a woman what she can and cannot do with HER uterus?
"U.S. District Court Judge Lee Yeakel's ruling followed a temporary injunction issued in August preventing Texas from outlawing the procedure known as dilation and evacuation, often referred to as "D&E." That injunction came on the day before the ban was to have gone into effect."
"The Texas law, known as Senate Bill 8 and signed by Gov. Greg Abbott earlier this year, was challenged in a lawsuit brought by abortion providers. They argued that the ban would require women seeking to terminate their pregnancies to undergo additional "unnecessary, invasive, and potentially painful medical procedures, in order to access their constitutional right to an abortion," before beginning a D&E procedure."
Ladies? These bastards truly believe they own YOUR uterus.
"The court is unaware of any other medical context that requires a doctor — in contravention of the doctor's medical judgment and the best interest of the patient — to conduct a medical procedure that delivers no benefit to the woman," Judge Yeakel wrote."
Indeed. Raw nazism. The ruling will be appealed by the Paxton nazi. Galling, isn't it?
Highly reminiscent of Llano County prosecutors, Sheriff Bill Blackburn and his criminal SS jackbooted bastards in black who continue to egregiously disgrace themselves and the badge, do as they please regardless of the law and Constitution, carefully consider the following. It's appalling. Runs against the grain of everything our formerly great country once stood for. No longer.
Apparently, the 'Justice' Department disingenuously believes it was hoodwinked by the ACLU. Remains willing to at least falsely accuse ACLU of duplicity to continue its unconstitutional war on the constitutional right to abortion affirmed by Roe v. Wade. CBS News reports:
"The Justice Department has filed a petition to the Supreme Court alleging that lawyers representing Jane Doe, an undocumented minor in federal custody, misled the government over the timing of her abortion procedure. The Justice Department in court documents argues lower court judgments in the case should be vacated, and discipline may be warranted against Jane Doe's attorneys."
Would be laughable if it were not for the fact the Trump nazi and his Attorney General stooge, the Sessions nazi are doing all they can to take a raucous hard dump on a legally settled constitutional right affirmed by Roe v. Wade. Carefully consider the following highly convoluted 'reasoning' of the 'Justice' Department in this fiasco. Certain indication these nazis remain desperate to eviscerate this 1973 landmark Supreme Court decision:
"In the brief, the Justice Department alleges that on the evening of October 24, Doe's representatives told the government that her counseling appointment would be moved to the morning of October 25, pushing the abortion procedure to the 26. Based on this, the government says it told the Supreme Court clerk's office that it intended to file a motion to stay the abortion the following day, October 25."
She had already had that mandated 'counseling' session days earlier. Had already met the terms of this outrageously unconstitutional Texas statute.
"At that point, by their own account, Ms. Doe's representatives did three things: they secured the services of Ms. Doe's original physician (who had provided counseling the previous week), moved her appointment from 7:30 to 4:15 a.m. on the morning of October 25, and changed the appointment from counseling to an abortion," the Justice Department alleges.
"Although Ms. Doe's representatives informed the government of the change in timing, they did not inform the government of the other two developments—which kept the government in the dark about when Ms. Doe was scheduled to have an abortion."
No question, growing desperation of these nazis to eviscerate the constitutional right to abortion remains achingly striking.
"The government also alleges that Doe's representatives did not notify the government or the shelter of the change in the nature of her appointment. "Efforts to reach respondent's counsel were met with silence, until approximately 10 a.m. EST, when one of her lawyers told the government that Ms. Does had undergone an abortion." Department of Justice spokesman Devin O'Malley said, "The ACLU misled the United States as to the timing of Jane Doe's abortion. After informing Justice Department attorneys that the procedure would occur on October 26, Jane Doe's attorneys scheduled the abortion for the early morning hours of October 25, thereby thwarting Supreme Court review."
Pitiful. Egregious convolution of reality. In a desperate attempt to abrogate the constitutional right to abortion. All in an effort to impose their perverse ideological and religious views in direct violation of the First Amendment Establishment Clause, church-state separation, that is, freedom from religion.
"The Justice Department also specified the remedies it seeks. "In light of that, the Justice Department believes the judgment under review should be vacated, and discipline may be warranted against Jane Doe's attorneys."
For what? Standing up to nazis in the 'Justice' Department desperate to abrogate the victim's constitutional right to an abortion affirmed by Roe v. Wade?
"ACLU Legal Director David Cole issued the following statement:
"The Trump administration blocked Jane Doe from getting constitutionally protected care for a month and subjected her to illegal obstruction, coercion, and shaming as she waited. After the courts cleared the way for her to get her abortion, it was the ACLU's job as her lawyers to see that she wasn't delayed any further — not to give the government another chance to stand in her way."
"Our lawyers acted in the best interest of our client and in full compliance with the court orders and federal and Texas law. That government lawyers failed to seek judicial review quickly enough is their fault, not ours."
The Washington Post reports:
"The government is asking the court to vacate the decision of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit that said she was entitled to an abortion."
Why? Roe v. Wade affirms this precious right, the right of a woman to do with her uterus as she damn well pleases. If there is no reproductive freedom, there is no freedom at all. Nazis on the Right patronizingly, condescendingly advise the 'little lady' to keep her legs crossed, panties up. None of their goddamned business.
“The government recognizes that respondent’s counsel have a duty to zealously advocate on behalf of their client, but they also have duties to this court and to the bar,” the filing says. “It appears under the circumstances that those duties may have been violated, and that disciplinary action may therefore be warranted. At the least, this court may wish to seek an explanation from counsel regarding this highly unusual chain of events.”
Apparent to whom? Nazis desperate to impose their perverse ideological and religious views in direct violation of the First Amendment Establishment Clause, church-state separation, that is, freedom from religion?
"ACLU Legal Director David Cole said in a statement the government’s charges were “baseless.” “This administration has gone to astounding lengths to block this young woman from getting an abortion,” Cole said. “Now, because they were unable to stop her, they are raising baseless questions about our conduct. Our lawyers acted in the best interest of our client and in full compliance with the court orders and federal and Texas law. That government lawyers failed to seek judicial review quickly enough is their fault, not ours.”
The crux of the matter is the Trump regime is falsely claiming it was hoodwinked. To cover its ass. Placate the Nazi Right backing the Trump nazi and his henchmen:
"The Justice Department has been criticized by some for failing to take the issue to the Supreme Court quickly enough to prevent the abortion, and Attorney General Jeff Sessions last week blamed the girl’s lawyers."
... Hey, Jeff? Can't dazzle 'em with brilliance, baffle 'em with bullshit? When that fails, gutlessly blame someone else? Jesus Christ. You're pathetic. Look in the mirror to see whose responsible for this goddamned ongoing outrageously unconstitutional fiasco:
"Lawyers who practice at the Supreme Court said that they could not remember a similar request to the court, and some theorized that the solicitor general’s office was feeling political heat from not moving faster to try to get the high court to step into the fight before it was too late."
If true, doesn't your heart bleed?
Here's the history and bottom line:
"A federal district judge ordered the abortion to proceed, but a three-judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit stopped the process, and said it was preferable that the government find a sponsor for the girl, which would take the government out of helping her receive an abortion.
"The full circuit reversed that decision in a 6-to-3 ruling, followed a few hours later by a new order from the district judge. And that started the race that Tuesday night. For the solicitor general’s office, it was to get the issue before the Supreme Court. For lawyers for the girl, it was to get her the abortion. She was 15 weeks pregnant at the time.
"Texas law requires medical counseling at least 24 hours in advance of an abortion by the same physician who performs the procedure. The 17-year-old underwent counseling on Oct. 19, allowing her to have the abortion any time after lower courts issued the order in her favor, depending on the doctor’s availability.
"The ACLU said the procedure was done in “full compliance with Texas law.”
The Trump nazi and his henchmen had no legitimate 'dog in this fight.' Was none of their goddamned business. The president again failed to carry out his oath of office to protect and defend the United States Constitution. Did all he could to abrogate the constitutional right to abortion affirmed by the 1973 Supreme Court decision Roe v. Wade. At worst, the 'Justice' Department got figuratively caught with its pants down. Tough shit.
In follow up to the last edition, the Trump regime is indeed placing undocumented pregnant women seeking a pharmaceutical abortion in danger. -- By refusing them access to the second pill required to complete the procedure. The Texas Standard reports:
"ORR is the federal agency that has custody of unaccompanied minors who enter the U.S. without documentation. According to court documents filed last week in Garza v. Hargan, another case of an unaccompanied minor seeking an abortion, ORR officials told this particular shelter not to give the young woman the second pill. “That is extremely dangerous because a woman can become septic from leftover tissue in her uterus,” says Hays, who helps minors in Texas seeking abortions through a group called Jane’s Due Process. “And sepsis can kill you.” "Hays says she was tipped off to the incident shortly after the young woman was denied the second pill required to complete the abortion."
Amazing this can go on despite the constitutional right to abortion affirmed by Roe v. Wade in 1973. Apparently, the Trump nazi and his henchmen are not only denying these ladies their right to an abortion, but placing them in great physical danger by not allowing completion of the abortion.
"According to court documents in Garza, what stood between the young woman and that second pill was a memo written on March 4. The memo was written by Ken Tota, the acting director of ORR at the time. In addition to directing the shelter not to give the young woman the pill, Tota’s memo directed the shelter to take her to a local hospital. He wrote: This memorandum directs ORR to bring the UAC to the emergency room of a local hospital in order to determine the health status of the UAC and her unborn child. If steps can be taken to preserve the life of the UAC and her unborn child, those steps should be taken. If it is confirmed that the unborn child has already expired due to the beginning of the abortion procedure, steps can be taken to safely remove the body of the unborn child."
"That Sunday, Hays says, the shelter followed the directions and subjected her to a gynecological exam. “That was not a necessary medical examination,” Hays says. “It was not one she could have possibly consented to, because she wasn’t told the purpose.” Hays says the shelter opened itself to possible litigation."
“A medical exam without consent is assault. A gynecological exam without consent is rape. And the federal government did that to that Jane,” she says, referring to the legal name Jane Doe given to minors in these situations. Cases involving minors are often sealed."
Convenient cover up of the government's duplicity.
Direct abrogation of the constitutional right to an abortion:
"The most sweeping aspect of that March 4 memo, though, is that it outlined a new policy for ORR: With the exception of emergency medical situations, when a UAC may be involved in an abortion, grantees [shelters] must immediately inform the director of the Division of Unaccompanied Children’s Services (DUCS or DCS) in ORR of the situation, must respond to DUCS’ requests for information, and are prohibited from taking any action that facilitates an abortion without direction and approval from the Director of ORR."
Say what? This goddamned government does not have the authority to abrogate a constitutional right. The right to abortion as affirmed by Roe v. Wade.
"In short, the new policy was that a shelter could not facilitate an abortion without the director’s approval. “And that is not only not the law — not the real policy – it violates a whole list of existing laws and rules including constitutional laws,” Hays says. According to court documents, the teenager finally got that second pill. But the new internal policy at ORR remains a big problem, she says. That’s why a federal court last week heard the Garza case, which involves a 17-year-old seeking an abortion at a shelter in Brownsville, Texas. On Tuesday, the court told the Trump administration to let her get the procedure."
This continues to be a problem. A big problem:
“The ACLU believes there are hundreds of pregnant [unaccompanied minors] in custody at any given time,” she says. “Hundreds. How many do we think have had abortions this year with Scott Lloyd running that office? Zero.” ORR declined to comment on how many abortions have been approved this year. Instead, officials from the Administration for Children and Families at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, the umbrella agencies for ORR, said in a statement: “For however much time we are given, the Office of Refugee Resettlement and HHS will protect the well-being of this minor and all children and their babies in our facilities, and we will defend human dignity for all in our care.”
Jesus Christ. Direct abrogation of the First Amendment Establishment Clause, church-state separation, that is, freedom from religion. Any doctor who conducted a medical exam without the consent of these young women should be prosecuted for assault. Any who conducted a gynecological exam without consent needs to be charged and prosecuted for rape.
"In Garza v. Hargan, the ACLU and others are asking a federal court to issue an injunction against these new policies – including forced gynecological exams and required visits to crisis pregnancy centers, among other things."
Abortion rights remain under attack by the nazi element. ABC News reports:
"A federal judge has permanently blocked Alabama laws that tried to restrict abortion clinics near schools and to ban a common second-trimester procedure. The decision by U.S. District Judge Myron Thompson came in 148-page ruling issued Thursday in which he prevented the state from enforcing the statutes. The decision made permanent a temporary ruling issued by Thompson a year ago; the state already is appealing that decision. The American Civil Liberties Union of Alabama called Thompson's decision a "great victory" for women. "Despite the state's continued attempts to restrict access to abortion, the courts have definitively held that access to an abortion is a constitutional right," Randall Marshall, executive director of the Alabama ACLU, said in a statement. Mike Lewis, a spokesman for Alabama Attorney General Steve Marshall, said the state will appeal Thompson's ruling."
Nazi bullshit, assault on all civil and constitutional rights and liberties never ends.
In follow up to the last edition, nazism remains alive and well in the judiciary. Ongoing, deliberate trampling of civil and constitutional rights and liberties. NPR reports:
"A federal appeals court in Washington, D.C., has ruled that a detained teenage immigrant may not obtain an abortion until a government-approved sponsor can be secured by the end of the month. A three-judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit split 2-1 on the ruling."
An outrageous ruling by a nazi court. Why should this young woman have to wait? Roe v. Wade is abundantly clear. This goddamned court is bastardizing the 1973 ruling. Doing so to allow the Trump nazi and his henchmen to at least temporarily, but effectively impose their outrageously perverse ideological and religious views on this young woman in direct violation of the First Amendment Establishment Clause, church-state separation, that is, freedom from religion.
"The case involves a 17-year-old who is referred to in court documents only as "Jane Doe." She came to this country illegally, discovered she was pregnant, and is seeking to terminate her pregnancy while she is detained in Texas in a private facility for unaccompanied minors supervised by the Department of Health and Human Services' Office of Refugee Resettlement. Lawyers for the government argue that it isn't obligated to help her get an abortion because the administration wants to promote child birth and fetal life."
Disingenuous bullshit for two reasons. First, they have not been asked to pay or transport her to get that abortion. Have been asked to temporarily release her so she can indeed get the abortion. Second, this goddamned government doesn't have the constitutional authority to "promote child birth and fetal life" by forcing these views on someone wishing to exercise the constitutional right to abort as affirmed by Roe v. Wade.
"The attorneys told the court that the government isn't interfering with the minor's right to obtain an abortion which is guaranteed by the 1973 Supreme Court ruling Roe v. Wade. But HHS officials have refused to transport her or release her into the custody of her guardian to obtain the abortion."
Called double talk.
Blatant bullshit. Effectively, falsely claiming its high noon,
-- when in reality 12 midnight.
"The federal appeals court has indicated that the young woman has a right to get an abortion and the court is giving the Department of Health and Human Services until October 31 to approve a sponsor so that the government need not facilitate the procedure."
That's also called bullshit. The appeals court is effectively denying this woman the right to immediately access medical care to facilitate an abortion.
"If a sponsor is secured and J.D. is released from HHS custody to the sponsor, HHS agrees that J.D. then will be lawfully able, if she chooses, to obtain an abortion on her own pursuant to the relevant state law," the judges wrote."
What this court is doing is impeding this woman's constitutional right to abort. No more complicated than that. Desperately trying to placate the Trump nazi, his henchmen, and the rest of the Republican Nazi Right that wishes to impose its outrageously perverse ideological and religious views on all.
"But they added if a sponsor is not secured and the minor is not released to a sponsor by Oct. 31, then the matter will return to the courts."
The two nazis on this three-judge panel are deliberately dragging their feet, denying this woman her right to quick access to medical care to facilitate her constitutional right to abort.
"There are no winners in cases like these," said Judge Patricia Millet said in a 10-page dissenting opinion. "But there sure are losers. As of today, J.D. has already been forced by the government to continue an unwanted pregnancy for almost four weeks, and now, as a result of this order, must continue to carry that pregnancy for multiple more weeks," she added."
This judge is exactly right. Remains appalling the judiciary refuses to immediately honor the constitutional right of this young woman to have an abortion.
"In a statement, American Civil Liberties lawyer Brigitte Amiri said, "Justice is delayed yet again for this courageous and persistent young woman. She continues to be held hostage and prevented from getting an abortion because the Trump administration disagrees with her personal decision."
Goddamned right. No more than transformation of the de facto fascist police-state we already live in to the Trump nazi's Fourth Reich.
A raucous, boot clicking, goose stepping, treasonous, treacherous, traitorous Sieg Heil!, Mr. 'President?' You're out of uniform, sir. Where is your brown shirt, swastika armband, Mr. 'President?'
"The ruling comes after the appeals panel temporarily blocked a lower court ruling allowing the minor to seek an abortion "without delay." The lower court ruling basically endorsed a Texas state judge's decision to allow the minor to seek an abortion. The procedure is to be paid for by the minor or her supporters."
Yet, this woman is being stonewalled in her demand to exercise a constitutional right by the nazis in government. Coup de grace? Galling hypocrisy? Get this:
"The Administration for Children and Families at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services released this statement:
"For however much time we are given, the Office of Refugee Resettlement and HHS will protect the well-being of this minor and all children and their babies in our facilities, and we will defend human dignity for all in our care."
Jesus Christ. A crock of shit. Denying and/or delaying this woman's constitutional right to abort does not protect her well-being, quite the opposite. What it does is intentionally impose the religious and/or ideological views of government lackeys in direct violation of the First Amendment Establishment Clause. Denies her human dignity, in fact, abrogates it. Worse, if the state does not find a sponsor by the end of the month and the court removes the block, the goddamned state could again appeal. Nazi justice.
In follow up, CBS News reports:
"Attorneys for a pregnant teen being held in a Texas immigration facility are asking a federal appeals court to reconsider its decision not to order the government to let her obtain an abortion. Lawyers for the 17-year-old on Sunday asked the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia to hold another hearing before all the judges on the court. A three-judge panel ruled against the teen Friday, giving the government until Oct. 31 to find a sponsor to take in the teen so she could get an abortion on her own. Her lawyers have accused federal officials of unlawfully restricting the teen's rights. But the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services says it has a policy of "refusing to facilitate" abortions for minors in its care."
In follow up, CBS News reports:
"A federal appeals court on Tuesday has cleared the way for a 17-year-old undocumented immigrant held in custody in Texas to obtain an abortion. The full U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit ruled 6-3 that new dates should be set for the teen to obtain the procedure. The decision overruled a ruling by a three-judge panel of the court that at least temporarily blocked her from getting an abortion."
"Lawyers for the Department of Health and Human Services, which is responsible for sheltering children who illegally enter the country unaccompanied by a parent, have said the department has a policy of "refusing to facilitate" abortions and that releasing the teenager would require arranging a transfer of custody and follow-up care. The teenager's lawyers have said all the government needed to do was "get out of the way." An attorney appointed to represent the teen's interests has said she could transport her to and from appointments necessary for the procedure, and the federal government would not have to pay for it."
Not good enough for the Trump nazi and his henchmen:
"CBS News' Paula Reid reports that the Trump administration is expected [to] appeal the latest decision to the U.S. Supreme Court. The dispute raises the question whether illegal immigrant women have the same rights to an abortion -- as established by the Supreme Court -- as U.S. residents. Reuters news agency reports that Judge Brett Kavanaugh of the D.C. court wrote in dissent that the court has embraced "a new right for unlawful immigrant minors in U.S. government detention to obtain immediate abortion on demand."
Jesus Christ. Have these nazis no shame?
CBS News reports:
"The undocumented teen who sought an abortion in the U.S. had her abortion this morning -- CBS News' Paula Reid reports -- before the Justice Department could appeal Tuesday's decision clearing the way for the teen to have the abortion."
Not clear yet whether the Trump nazi and his henchmen gave up, -- or simply did not have time to file the appeal.
"The teen, known as "Jane Doe," said in a statement that she had come to the U.S. to make a better life for herself. "My journey wasn't easy, but I came here with hope in my heart to build a life I can be proud of," she said in a statement released through her guardian. "I dream about studying, becoming a nurse, and one day working with the elderly." She went on to say that when she was detained, she had been placed in a shelter for children, where she was first told she was pregnant. "I knew immediately what was best for me then, as I do now – that I'm not ready to be a parent," she wrote. The group Jane's Due Process helped present her case to a judge, who gave her permission to end her pregnancy without her parents' consent. Though she was nervous about appearing in court, "I was treated very kindly," she wrote."
Her body. Her uterus. Her decision. Not that of nazi government determined to impose its outrageously perverse ideological and religious views in direct violation of the First Amendment Establishment Clause, church-state separation, that is, freedom from religion. To say nothing of the constitutional right to abort guarantied by Roe v. Wade.
"Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton said in a statement, "Today's loss of innocent human life is tragic."
Not your call, Counselor. Her body. Her uterus. Not yours, sir. Your hypocrisy? Stunning. How about all the innocent unarmed civilians murdered by the criminal jackbooted bastards in blue with impunity all across our formerly great country, Counselor? How about all those innocent executed for crimes they did not commit, sir? Your silence? Gutless. How about all those who have lost their lives on the battlefield to line the pockets of corporate war profiteers?
"Paxton said the abortion "may have been avoidable," citing what he called "long standing Supreme Court precedent on the rights of an unlawfully present person." "This ruling not only cost a life," he said. "It could pave the way for anyone outside the United States to unlawfully enter and obtain an abortion. Life and the Constitution are sacred. We lost some of both today."
You continually take a raucous hard dump on the Constitution, Bill of Rights, then lament when a court rightfully orders government to stand out of the way, enforces Roe v. Wade and the constitutional right to an abortion? Your egregious inconsistency, laughable. Nazi bastards like you have for generations done all they could to bastardize the Constitution, Bill of Rights to impose your brand of nazism, Counselor. Deliberately taken a raucous hard dump on all civil and constitutional rights and liberties. Then, sir, get caught with your hand in the cookie jar, do all you can to delay going to trial on a felony indictment? Give me a break.
"Responding to the news, Kristan Hawkins, president of the anti-abortion rights group Students for Life, called it "a tragedy" and said, "The U.S. should not become the abortion capitol of the world."
Non-sequitur. Abject bullshit. Distortion of reality by a lunatic talking out the ass.
"It's the worst form of patriarchy to tell a young woman that without an abortion, she can't accomplish great things," Hawkins said, "and we hope that [the] Trump administration will continue to fight to protect the lives of all on U.S. soil."
Say what? Who the hell told her that? Or, anyone else for that matter? More talk out the ass to impose your outrageously perverse ideological and religious views on others.
The Washington Post reports:
“Justice prevailed today for Jane Doe. But make no mistake about it, the administration’s efforts to interfere in women’s decisions won’t stop with Jane,” said Brigitte Amiri, senior staff attorney with the ACLU Reproductive Freedom Project which represented the teen. The ACLU is continuing its broader challenge to the administration’s new policy on behalf of what the organization says are hundreds of undocumented pregnant teenagers in federal custody."
More on this in the next edition.
"Lawyers for the Department of Justice had been considering whether to ask the Supreme Court to put the D.C. Circuit order on hold, which would have brought the volatile issue of abortion to the high court in a very personal and real-life challenge. But they may have miscalculated how quickly the girl could receive an abortion. Texas law requires counseling from a doctor at least 24 hours in advance of an abortion, but the teen underwent counseling last week allowing her to go forward once Chutkan issued her order. The government lawyers did not immediately ask for a hold on the D.C. Court opinion after the Tuesday ruling. By the time the Supreme Court opened Wednesday, it appears there was no issue left for the justices to decide."
As stated earlier above, be interesting to see just how this all went down. Not clear yet.
The following is appalling. A portend of what's to come as our formerly great country transforms from a fascist police-state to the Trump nazi's Fourth Reich. An egregious violation of the First Amendment Establishment Clause, church-state separation, that is, freedom from religion. NPR reports:
"Attorneys with the American Civil Liberties Union are asking a federal court in Washington, D.C., to force the Trump administration to allow a young, undocumented immigrant woman in Texas to obtain an abortion. The ACLU said the 17-year-old unaccompanied minor from Central America is being held at a private shelter that contracts with the federal Department of Health and Human Services Office of Refugee Resettlement, and federal officials will not release her to obtain the procedure. The suit seeks an emergency order asking the court to block the federal government from obstructing the girl's access to abortion."
Clearly, the Trump nazi, his henchmen, and the Republican Party are intent on creating a theocracy. Trump is forcing his outrageously perverse religious and ideological views on all in direct violation of his falsely sworn oath of office.
"Brigitte Amiri, senior staff attorney with the ACLU Reproductive Freedom Project, calls the government's action "outrageous" and "unprecedented." "The government is completely out of bounds by banning abortion for this young woman," Amiri said. "It is blatantly unconstitutional and it is inhumane." Under Texas law, minors need parental consent or a judge's permission to obtain an abortion. In a previous legal filing, the ACLU said the girl, known as Jane Doe in the case to protect her privacy, has obtained that permission, but the government has blocked her from leaving the shelter for that purpose. The ACLU said federal officials required the girl to undergo counseling and an ultrasound at a crisis pregnancy center, an anti-abortion organization that does not provide abortion services."
An outrageous abrogation of his oath of office to protect and defend the United States Constitution. Sadly, treasonously, the 'President' and his henchmen present an exigent threat to all civil and constitutional rights and liberties.
Moreover, the Nazi Right is truly insane, hell-bent on imposing its outrageously perverse religious and ideological views on all in direct violation of the First Amendment Establishment Clause:
"Anti-abortion-rights groups have praised the Trump administration's action in the case. Marjorie Dannenfelser, president of the anti-abortion-rights group Susan B. Anthony List, said in a statement: "This young girl deserves compassion and quality health care. Abortion is not health care and the ACLU is taking advantage of a young woman in a desperate situation." She called the suit a "ploy" to turn Texas into a "sanctuary state for abortion."
Jesus Christ. This woman has lost her mind. She and those who think like her are a direct threat to all civil and constitutional rights and liberties. These achingly sick nazis are traitors.
"In an amicus brief earlier this week, Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton asked a federal judge in San Francisco to deny the young woman's request. Paxton argued that allowing the girl to obtain an abortion would have "far-reaching and dire consequences."
So does an indicted Texas Attorney General doing all he can to delay going to trial on felony charges.
"For example, Paxton argued that allowing an abortion could open the door to other rights for undocumented immigrants, writing, "it is hard to imagine why she could be denied any other constitutional rights — such as the Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms."
Anyone under U.S. jurisdiction, no matter their immigration status, should be afforded the protections of the United States Constitution. The Nazi Right does not believe so. Bought and paid for Republicans in the judiciary certainly don't think so. The Constitution has been concertedly bastardized since ratification by those determined to abrogate its protections.
"The San Francisco judge said on Wednesday that the government cannot block the girl from getting the procedure. But the judge declined to issue an order requiring the government to allow her to leave the facility in Texas, saying that the suit was not filed in the right court. That decision prompted the latest filing by the ACLU."
Someone has to challenge our nazi oppressors in court. Only alternative? Unthinkable. An unwanted dreaded second American revolution catastrophically looming. As the revolution doomsday clock strikes ever closer to midnight.
"Amiri, with the ACLU, declined to say how far along the undocumented teenager in Texas is in her pregnancy but noted that delays bring increased health risks and legal barriers to obtaining the abortion as the pregnancy progresses. Amiri said the case could have implications for other undocumented immigrant women. "Since the Trump administration has taken over, we have seen a pattern of this happening to other women, and we are fearful that it will happen to other women in the future if the court does not intervene," Amiri said."
Nazi America. A fascist police-state. The Fourth Reich.
In follow up, The Washington Post reports:
"A federal judge on Wednesday ordered the U.S. government to allow an undocumented teenager in its custody to have an abortion, after saying she was “astounded” the Trump administration was trying to prevent the procedure."
Direct violation of Roe v. Wade.
"Lawyers for Attorney General Jeff Sessions signaled to U.S. District Judge Tanya S. Chutkan in Washington that the 17-year-old, who crossed the border from Mexico illegally last month, did not have a constitutional right to an elective abortion in federal custody, unless it was a medical emergency."
Jesus Christ. These callous sons of bitches bastardize a Supreme Court decision to impose the Trump nazi's perverse religious views.
"Chutkan, an Obama administration nominee, said the government appeared to be presenting the teenager identified in court papers as “Jane Doe” with two options: Voluntarily return to a nation she fled to procure an abortion, or carry an unwanted pregnancy to term. “I am astounded by that position,” Chutkan said in a 40-minute hearing that was mostly consumed by a back-and-forth between the judge and Scott Stewart, a deputy assistant attorney general."
"She ordered the government to transport the teenager to have the procedure — or allow her guardian to transport her — “promptly and without delay.” Lawyers for the American Civil Liberties Union, which is representing the girl, asked Chutkan for an emergency restraining order to prevent the government from blocking the girl’s plan to have an abortion. They also sought a preliminary injunction to protect others seeking abortions. The judge said she would issue a ruling by 5 p.m."
Unbelievable this shit could be going on almost 45 years after Roe v. Wade.
"ACLU lawyer Brigitte Amiri argued that it was “out of any sort of constitutional bounds” for the U.S. government to block the teenager’s legal right to an abortion, which is preserved in the 1973 Supreme Court Roe v. Wade ruling. A federal magistrate judge in California agreed with the ACLU earlier this month but said she could not rule in the case because the girl is detained in South Texas. But Stewart told the judge that pregnant undocumented minors from other countries are not entitled to abortions, and said in court records that opening the door to that right “would significantly infringe on the government’s interests in preserving life and protecting national boundaries.”
A crock of shit. No more than a blatant attempt by the Trump nazi and his henchmen to impose their perverse religious views on all in direct violation of the First Amendment Establishment Clause, church-state separation, that is, freedom from religion.
“I respectfully disagree that she’s entitled to an abortion” facilitated by the government, he said, noting that the girl’s case was not a medical emergency. In court filings, the government said it has “strong and constitutionally legitimate interests in promoting childbirth, in refusing to facilitate abortion, and in not providing incentives for pregnant minors to illegally cross the border to obtain elective abortions while in federal custody.”
Unf--king believable. Direct violation of Roe v. Wade.
"Chutkan countered that the teenager does not need a medical emergency to exercise her right to an abortion. She said the girl had followed state and federal rules: She obtained permission from a state judge in Texas to have an abortion and would cover the expenses herself or with help through her court-appointed guardian. All the government had to do, the judge said, is process the paperwork to let the girl visit the clinic, just as they would if she needed to have her tonsils removed. Stewart said the girl could also voluntarily leave the United States and find another way to have an abortion, and said the girl had chosen to remain in federal custody instead of returning home. That claim appeared to irk the judge, who pointed out that the federal workers took the girl, against her wishes, to a Christian pregnancy facility for counseling and also informed her mother about the abortion. Both steps potentially violated the girl’s constitutional right to privacy and other protections, Chutkan said. “The government certainly had no problem taking her against her will to receive pregnancy counseling, which was designed to change her mind,” Chutkan said. “The government didn’t seem to have any problem facilitating that.”
Nothing quite like hypocrisy, is there?
"The judge and Stewart also sparred over whether some aspects of the law remain undisputed. Chutkan asked Stewart if he thought illegal immigrants had constitutional rights and if he believed that Roe v. Wade, which guarantees a woman’s right to an abortion, is still the “law of the land.” Stewart acknowledged the Supreme Court’s ruling but said the government views this case differently because the teenager is an undocumented immigrant in federal custody. He also said undocumented immigrants have “minimal” protections in this country. “I’m not going to give you a concession on that your honor,” he said. The judge laughed. “This is remarkable,” she said." During the hearing, Chutkan also answered her own questions, saying the girl’s legal status was “irrelevant” and that “despite the fact that she’s in this country illegally, she still has constitutional rights.”
... Subsequent to the above, an appeals court has temporarily stayed the order. More in the next edition.
This cancer is deeply entrenched. Systemic. CBS News reports:
"Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-South Carolina, introduced the "The Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act" to the Senate Thursday after its passage in the House Tuesday. "At the end of the day what we are trying to do is stop the practice of abortion on-demand at 20 weeks, and believe it or not, it is a problem," Graham said at a press conference Thursday. The House voted 237-189 to pass the measure. The proposed legislation would make performing or attempting to perform an abortion illegal after 20 weeks of pregnancy, with exceptions for life-threatening circumstances for the mother as well as cases of rape, which Graham qualified as being "rare." Twenty states have similar bans in place. Under the measure, abortion providers would face penalties including a potential fine, up to five years in prison, or both."
Goddamned Republican nazis. Wouldn't know freedom, liberty if it figuratively bit them hard on their national socialist, achingly fascist asses.
Texas Rep. Mike Conaway opines in his latest newsletter:
"There is no life more vulnerable than the life of an unborn child. Medical professionals have reached a consensus that at 20 weeks, a child in utero can feel pain and physical suffering. This week, the House passed The Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, which ensures that no child capable of feeling pain will be subjected to the cruelty of an abortion."
It's nazis on the Right like you Congressman who dictate to doctors what they can and cannot do vis a vis how abortions are performed and what medications are used. Your claim is achingly disingenuous since doctors are not allowed to administer a lethal injection to the fetus which would eliminate any possibility of pain. Nazis like you dictate by statute medical procedures to impose your achingly perverse religious and ideological views on all.
"The majority of Americans support a ban on abortions after 20 weeks, yet the United States is one of just seven countries that allows elective abortions after 20 weeks- along with countries like North Korea and China who are known to dispose of babies with defects. It's time we stand as a country in support of the unborn children who are counting on our protection."
Outrageously haughty of you and other nazis who think like you to impose your outrageously perverse religious and ideological views by statute on those who strongly disagree with them. Achingly, un-American. Worse? Traitorous. Nazi.
Abortion care continues to be denied in our formerly great country. NPR reports:
"Dr. Graham Chilies has delivered hundreds of babies. But when a woman comes into his family medicine practice in Waive, Hawaii, seeking an abortion, he can only advise her to buy a plane ticket. "There are no abortion providers on our island," Chelius said, "so if one of my patients wants to end her pregnancy, she has to fly to a different island 150 miles away to get this care."
Nazi America. Determined abrogation of a constitutional right.
"Chelius is a plaintiff in a new lawsuit by the American Civil Liberties Union that's seeking to expand access to medication abortions, which can be used during the first 10 weeks of a pregnancy. The suit, filed Tuesday in federal court in Hawaii, challenges a longstanding U.S. Food and Drug Administration regulation allowing the abortion pill, Mifeprex, to be dispensed only at a medical facility under the care of a certified provider. Among other requirements, those providers must pre-register with the drug manufacturer, keep the medication in stock, and be capable of providing a surgical abortion if complications arise. Chelius argues those rules are unnecessary and cumbersome. Hawaii has one of the nation's highest poverty rates, and the delays and expenses are sometimes insurmountable barriers, Chelius said. The case could have implications beyond Hawaii."
"The FDA restrictions create delays that often push medication abortion out of reach of my patients," he said. "And some of my patients are simply unable to make this trip and instead have been forced to carry a pregnancy to term against their will."
Precisely, the will of the Nazi Right to deny women their constitutional right to abort.
"Julia Kaye, a staff attorney with ACLU's Reproductive Freedom Project, argues that it's time for the FDA to allow women to fill those prescriptions at pharmacies – a move that could substantially expand access to medication abortions. She notes that the abortion pill is considered safe by most medical professionals, and many women prefer it. "It feels more natural to them, like a miscarriage. It allows them to pass the pregnancy in the privacy and comfort of their homes surrounded by their loved ones," Kaye said. "It allows a woman to end her pregnancy on her own terms."
Can't have that in a fascist police-state soon to be the Trump nazi's Fourth Reich:
"Anti-abortion groups have long opposed the abortion pill, along with other methods of ending pregnancy."
To impose their outrageously perverse religious and ideological views on all by statute.
Abortion rights remain under vicious attack. ABC News reports:
"Kelly Kuhns rejected Down syndrome testing the first three times she got pregnant; the 36-year-old nurse from Ohio always knew she'd never terminate a pregnancy."
Certainly, her right. Has no right, however, to force her views on anyone by law. Precisely, her goal, -- her son has Down Syndrome.
"Kuhns went to her home in rural central Ohio that day and cried for hours. [After testing confirmed Down Syndrome] But Oliver, her 2-year-old son with Down syndrome, ultimately has led "a pretty normal life." That's why Kuhns is fighting for an Ohio bill that would ban abortions in cases where a pregnant woman has had a positive test result or prenatal diagnosis indicating Down syndrome."
While this woman is entitled to do as she pleases with HER uterus, has no right to impose those views, HER views on others.
"Physicians convicted of performing an abortion under such circumstances could be charged with a fourth-degree felony, stripped of their medical license and held liable for legal damages. The pregnant woman would face no criminal liability."
Raw nazism. In a fascist police-state soon to be the Trump nazi's Fourth Reich.
"Several other states have considered similar measures, triggering emotional debate over women's rights, parental love, and the trust between doctor and patient."
To the Nazi Right, freedom is having the right to do what you're told. What they tell you.
"The Ohio bill's chief Senate sponsor, Republican Sen. Frank LaRose, said GOP lawmakers accelerated the measure after hearing a mid-August CBS News report on Iceland's high rate of abortions in cases involving Down syndrome. The report asserted Iceland had come close to "eradicating" such births."
It's none of your goddamned business, Senator. Who the hell are you to force your perverse religious views on others by statute? Where is your swastika armband, you nazi son of a bitch?
"Iceland is one of several European countries where Down syndrome diagnoses lead to abortion at least 90 percent of time. Others include Denmark and Britain. The rate in the United States is lower — probably between 67 and 85 percent, according to one of the most recent studies, a 2012 analysis in the journal Prenatal Diagnosis."
It's the woman's uterus, HER choice. Not that of a religious nazi desperate to impose his or her perverse religious views on others in direct violation of the First Amendment Establishment Clause, that is, church-state separation, freedom from religion.
Another judge has stood tall vis a vis abortion rights. CBS News reports:
"A federal judge permanently struck down provisions of an Indiana law passed last year that would have banned abortions sought due to fetal genetic abnormalities and required that aborted fetuses be buried or cremated. U.S. District Judge Tanya Walton Pratt's decision, issued Friday, found that those two provisions and a third one are unconstitutional. She granted an order permanently blocking all three from being enforced and granted summary judgment in favor of Planned Parenthood of Indiana and Kentucky, which had sued the state in April 2016 after then-Gov. Mike Pence signed the provisions into law."
Indeed, encouraging to see at least some in the judiciary willing to stand up to these egregious laws clearly abrogating a woman's right to do with HER uterus as she damn well pleases.
"The three restrictions violate women's due process rights under the Constitution and conflict with rulings by numerous courts, including the U.S. Supreme Court, upholding a woman's right to seek an abortion before a fetus could viably survive outside the womb, Pratt wrote in her ruling. "The challenged anti-discrimination provisions directly contravene well-established law that precludes a state from prohibiting a woman from electing to terminate a pregnancy prior to fetal viability," the judge wrote. Pratt's order makes permanent her preliminary order issued in June 2016 -- a day before the law was set to take effect -- that temporarily blocked the provisions from being enforced."
What about up to the moment of birth? How dare the state dictate to a woman what she can and cannot do with HER uterus up to and including viability? Force her to carry to term? HER uterus. HER body. Whatever happened to liberty? No more than the 'freedom' to do what you're told? ... Which is no freedom at all.
"Indiana is now permanently barred from enforcing a restriction that would have banned abortions sought because of a fetus' genetic abnormalities, race, gender or ancestry. Pratt's order also permanently blocks a requirement that abortion providers tell women that Indiana prohibits such abortions, and another provision that would have required that aborted fetuses be buried or cremated. As for the fetal disposal provision, Pratt wrote that she could find no legal basis for Indiana to require health care providers "to treat fetal remains in the same manner as human remains." "Stated otherwise, if the law does not recognize a fetus as a person, there can be no legitimate state interest in requiring an entity to treat an aborted fetus the same as a deceased human," she wrote."
Should the fetus be declared a person as demanded by the Nazi Religious Right, not only will they have successfully created an outrageously unconstitutional de fact theocracy, will have effectively obliterated liberty. Sadly, Pratt's order will be appealed.
Consider the following. NBC News reports:
"Michelle Zavala is one of a startlingly high number of women in Texas who have died after childbirth. The state has the highest number of pregnancy-related deaths not just in the United States — but in the entire developed world. Texas' maternal mortality rates are 35.8 per 100,000 live births as of 2014, according to a study in Obstetrics and Gynecology. By comparison, the maternal mortality in Japan was 5 per 100,000 live births, according to UNICEF's 2015 data. In Poland, it was just 3."
Why? Especially, since Republicans in Nazi Texas have become so proficient at dictating to the 'lil' lady what she can and cannot do with HER uterus.
Some semblance of sanity. CBS News reports:
"A federal judge has blocked Arkansas from enforcing four new abortion restrictions, including a ban on a common second trimester procedure and a fetal remains law that opponents say would effectively require a partner's consent before a woman could get an abortion."
Outrageous infringement of a constitutional right.
"U.S. District Court Judge Kristine Baker issued a preliminary injunction late Friday night against the new restrictions, three of which were set to take effect Tuesday. The American Civil Liberties Union and the Center for Reproductive Rights had challenged the measures, suing on behalf of Dr. Frederick Hopkins, a Little Rock abortion provider."
All civil and constitutional rights and liberties are under vicious attack by the Nazi Right.
"The laws include a ban on a procedure known as dilation and evacuation. Abortion-rights supporters contend it's the safest and most common procedure used in second-trimester abortions. Similar bans are in effect in Mississippi and West Virginia and have been blocked by court rulings in Alabama, Kansas, Louisiana and Oklahoma. A ban approved in Texas will take effect in September and is also being challenged in court. The groups said the ban would have a devastating impact, while the state argued that alternative procedures are available."
Clearly, Republican nazis embrace an outrageously perverse conception of liberty, worse, have no regard for all civil and constitutional rights and liberties.
NBC News reports:
"A federal judge has struck down Alabama's one-of-a-kind law that enabled judges to put minors seeking abortions through a trial-like proceeding in which the fetus could get a lawyer and prosecutors could object to the pregnant girl's wishes."
These 'Christian' nazis have apparently lost their minds.
"Alabama legislators in 2014 changed the state's process for girls who can't or won't get their parents' permission for an abortion to obtain permission from a court instead. The new law empowered the judge to appoint a guardian ad litem "for the interests of the unborn child" and invited the local district attorney to call witnesses and question the girl to determine whether she's mature enough to decide."
What a crock of shit. Shamelessly blatant attempt to impose their outrageously perverse ideological and religious views. Direct violation of the First Amendment Establishment Clause, church-state separation, that is, freedom from religion. Clueless nazis.
"U.S. Magistrate Judge Susan Russ Walker sided Friday with the American Civil Liberties Union of Alabama, writing that the law unconstitutionally and impermissibly imposes "an undue burden on a minor in Alabama who seeks an abortion through a judicial bypass," and violates the girl's confidentiality by potentially bringing other people from her life into the process."
Precisely, the intention of the 'Christian' nazis responsible for this appalling, atrocious law.
"Every state requiring parental consent for abortions involving minors must also have a "judicial bypass" procedure so that girls can get a judge's approval in a way that is effective, confidential, and expeditious, the ACLU said."
Think these nazi bastards are playing with a full deck? Consider the following:
"The ACLU filed the lawsuit in 2014 in federal court in Montgomery on behalf of Reproductive Health Services, a Montgomery abortion clinic. It is unclear how many such proceedings have happened since the law was enacted. Walker noted that a district attorney this summer opposed the abortion request of a 12-year-old girl who had been raped by an adult relative, and said it was the first case she was aware of that was decided under the new law. The girl was 13 weeks pregnant and had just completed fifth grade when she went before a family court judge, according to a court record. The judge approved the abortion on June 27, and the district attorney appealed the same day, arguing that the girl was too immature to make an informed decision. The Alabama Court of Civil Appeals on July 12 ruled in favor of the girl."
Other countries are stepping up. NPR reports:
"An effort to help global sexual health charities losing support under the Trump administration has reached a new milestone: $300 million in fundraising.
"The fundraising effort began after President Trump reinstated the "Mexico City policy." That's a rule that says U.S. foreign aid cannot be sent to any organization that provides or "promotes" abortion, which can include providing information about abortion."
The constitutional right to abortion is under severe attack all across our formerly great country. The worst at the moment appears to be in Kentucky. ABC News reports:
"Political pressure has intensified since the Kentucky GOP took control of state government and moved quickly to pass new restrictions on abortions. And Republican Gov. Matt Bevin makes no apologies for waging a licensing fight against a Louisville clinic that is the last remaining facility performing abortions in the state."
Direct determined concerted abrogation of a constitutional right.
"Another battle-tested participant joins the fight this weekend. Operation Save America, a Christian fundamentalist group, plans to mobilize hundreds of activists to protest against EMW Women's Surgical Center. The group's leaders state their purpose unequivocally: to rid Kentucky of its last abortion clinic. Some of the group's followers were arrested during a protest outside EMW in the spring. The group has said it won't use those same tactics in the coming days, but a federal judge on Friday ordered the creation of a "buffer zone" to keep protesters out of an area in front of the clinic. The pre-emptive move was requested by federal prosecutors to prevent protesters from blocking access to the surgical center."
Desperate to force their outrageously perverse ideological and religious views on all.
"We have never been under siege like this," Dr. Ernest Marshall, a co-founder of the clinic open since the early 1980s, recently told The Associated Press. "We have never had any question as to whether we would exist."
No longer in Nazi Kentucky.
"As a volunteer whisked another woman past a handful of protesters, a demonstrator clutching a rosary told the patient's male companion: "Men don't kill their babies. Man up." The man turned and glared but said nothing."
Should have told the nazi bastard to go f--k himself.
"The demonstrator, Chuck Jones, defended his harsh words. "This is the last chance we'll get to talk to them before they go in," the retired sheet-metal worker from Indiana said."
Who the hell are you to do so? None of your goddamned business. Not your uterus.
"I just wanted him to think about what he's doing. If anybody believes in God, they can't be for abortion, in my opinion."
That's the problem. That's all it is. An opinion. Like an asshole, everyone has one. At least the asshole, however, serves a useful bodily function.
"The 66-year-old Marshall — the father of three grown children and grandfather of eight — said he attends church every Sunday and is a former Sunday school teacher. He said abortion protesters don't have a "monopoly on morals." He condemned their tactics as "very harassing, very judgmental," taking a toll on patients and staff. "Some of the things I see out in front of our clinic, to me, by the pro-life people, don't represent good Christianity," Marshall said. "I just don't think Jesus would harass people or name-call people or call doctors murderers."
Wouldn't want to confuse the nazi element with the truth, would you, Doctor?
"The number of protesters is expected to surge this weekend when Texas-based Operation Save America converges on Louisville for a weeklong vigil, with the long-term goal of making Kentucky a national model in its push to end abortion. The group urges state officials to ignore the Supreme Court's Roe v. Wade decision in 1973 that legalized abortion."
"The Supreme Court has found that access to an abortion must be guaranteed, but it remains to be seen whether eliminating every clinic in a single state would pass that test. "I can't imagine being a female and being ... forced to have a baby that I didn't want," Marshall said."
A nazi can't see that far. Too myopic.
Despite best efforts of Republican nazis to dictate to a woman what she can and cannot do with her uterus, the outcome is not what they expected it to be. Texas Standard reports:
"For years, Texas Republicans have pointed to defunding Planned Parenthood as a way to reduce abortions. But a new study says those measures have backfired."
Wouldn't want to confuse the nazi element with the truth, would we?
"Miami University Economics Professor Analisa Packham studied how family planning cuts impacted teenagers specifically. She found that in the three years following the 2011 cuts to Texas’ family planning budget, the teen abortion rate rose 3.1 percent. It also found that teen births rose three-point-four percent."
Then again, 'can fix ignorant, can't fix stupid.' ... Right, TB?
"The 2011 cuts slashed public funding for family planning by about two-thirds, resulting in the closure of more than 80 womens’ health clinics."
Direct intentional blatant abrogation of the First Amendment Establishment Clause, church-state separation, that is, freedom from religion. The nazi element is determined to force its perverse ideological and religious views on all by statute.
Not only that, the Abbott nazi is determined to intrude on the privacy of those seeking an abortion. Texas Standard reports:
"The governor says requiring the gathering more information about complications encountered during abortions will make the procedures safer. Critics believe the goal is to restrict abortion access further."
Abortion is far safer than carrying the baby to term. The Governor knows this. Doesn't matter to the nazi. Remains intent on dictating to the 'lil' lady what she can and cannot do with her uterus. To force his perverse ideological and religious views on all. No question, the intent of the Nazi Republican Right.
"During the regular legislative session, Texas lawmakers passed new reporting requirements for abortion providers. Gov. Greg Abbott wants them to pass even tougher requirements during the special session that starts Tuesday."
It's none of the goddamned government's business. These GOP nazis are doing this to make it as difficult and intrusive as possible for a woman to do as she pleases with her uterus. ... Right, Greg?
"Senate Bill 8, which Abbott signed into law last month, includes a measure moving basic abortion data collection to an online database that doesn’t exist yet. It also puts the onus on physicians to report the data within a certain time period. Blake Rocap, legislative counsel for NARAL Pro-Choice Texas, said the measures could hurt physicians. “[It] both could endanger the physician’s confidentiality,” he said, “and targets the physician for regulatory harassment for paperwork – basically what amounts to paperwork errors, not patient care errors.”
Certainly, the intention of Republican nazis. Do all they can to abrogate a woman's constitutional right to an abortion. In direct violation of their falsely sworn oath to protect and defend the United States Constitution. ... Right, Governor?
"Rocap said no one is opposed to the idea of better reporting. “We are not opposed to good neutral health care data collection, but we are opposed to doing it in such a way that puts targets on physicians,” he says. “And I mean that literally.” Rocap said the push for these reporting requirements is a reaction to a Supreme Court ruling last year striking down a Texas abortion law that placed onerous requirements on abortion providers, like having to perform the abortion in a surgical suite instead of a clinic room. The requirements were reportedly made in the name of safety, but the court ruled the state could not prove those additional safety measures were needed."
Has nothing to do with safety. Nor concern for women's health. What it is remains no more than nazi Republicans desperately trying to force their outrageously perverse ideological and religious views on all. In direct violation of the First Amendment Establishment Clause, church-state separation, that is, freedom from religion.
... Freedom from our nazi oppressors in the Republican Party as well. Where are the Democrats? Out to lunch? Clearly, neither party serves the best interests of the public. Only itself. Both pay lip service to liberty while shamelessly lining their pockets.
Get their cookies off abrogating liberty, whether from the Extreme Right for Republicans, or what's left of the Extreme Left for Democrats. Either way, liberty is not well-served, deliberately abrogated. Perversely, in the name of 'freedom.' Catch-22.
Ever wonder why the rate of teenage pregnancy is as high as it is in Texas? NPR reports:
"In Texas every year, about 35,000 teens and young women get pregnant before they turn 20. And while rates of teen pregnancy are on the decline nationwide, in Texas the rate of decline is slower."
Forget? This is Bible Belt Country. Think abstinence-only works? Truly believe so?
"Research shows teens everywhere are having sex, with about half of high school students saying they've had sexual intercourse. Gwen Daverth, CEO of the Texas Campaign to Prevent Teen Pregnancy, says the high numbers in Texas reflect policy, not promiscuity."
Yet, high school students are receiving abstinence-only sex education, -- if any sex education at all. Worse? No easy access to contraceptive services.
"What we see is there are not supports in place," Daverth says. "We're not connecting high-risk youth with contraception services. And we're not supporting youth in making decisions to be abstinent." The state needs to emulate more progressive policies in other states, she says."
That's not likely to happen any time in the near future. Sick religion, the greatest obstacle.
"Texas makes it hard for teenagers to get reproductive health care, Daverth says. In Texas, if a 17-year-old mom wants prescription birth control, in most cases she needs her parents' permission. "Only us and Utah have a law that if you're already a parent, you are the legal medical guardian of your baby but you cannot make your own medical decisions without the now-grandma involved," Daverth says. That's part of the reason, she notes, that Texas has the highest rate of repeat teen pregnancies in the country."
Wouldn't want to confuse clueless Republican nazis with the truth, would we?
The following is yet another example of the consequences of achingly sick religion. Madeline Runkles is an exceptionally gifted high school student who wrote the following editorial in The Washington Post:
"I’m only 18 years old, and I’m about to have a baby boy in the fall as a result of my deliberate failure to adhere to a pledge of chastity I signed at my school.
"Until this year, I was an ordinary high school student at Heritage Academy, a Christian school in Hagerstown, Md. I was the president of the student council and vice president of the Key Club. I played soccer, had a 4.0 GPA, and ate ice cream and watched movies with my best friends on the weekends. My Christian faith is also extremely important to me, so I involved myself at my church working in the nursery, helping out with Vacation Bible School and helping my mom with meals for church bus drivers on Sunday mornings.
"But in January, all that changed. What I thought was the flu was actually the very beginning of my pregnancy. This wasn’t the way it was supposed to be. I was going to graduate in a few months with very good grades and then in the fall I was going to head off to Bob Jones University in South Carolina.
"I am a born-again Christian, one who made a mistake with a very visible consequence. Even though I grew up knowing abortion was wrong, I also knew that it would make things easier for me — no one would know what I had done, and I could get on with my life. I had seen women being forgiven who admitted to having abortions, while women who kept their babies seemed to be harder to forgive. But the more I thought about abortion, the more I knew I couldn’t go through with it. In my view, abortion is taking a life. And I couldn’t do that.
"I told the baby’s father first. I didn’t know how to tell my parents, because even though they were very involved in both my brother’s life and mine, telling my parents I was pregnant at 18 wasn’t at the top of my list of things I thought I would ever do.
"Finally, I broke down in a grocery store parking lot with my mom, and I cried as I told her the truth. She looked at me and said: “I’m not mad at you, I’m not upset with you. You’re gonna be fine, and we’re gonna make it through this.” I still had to work up the courage to tell my dad, but when I finally did — the day I received my acceptance letter to Bob Jones — he reacted just like my mom: “It’s going to be okay, sweetie,” he said, “God is in this somewhere, we just need to find where He is in all of this.”
"Unfortunately, my school didn’t feel the same way.
"My dad was, at the time, the president of the board at Heritage Academy. He called an emergency board meeting to explain my situation. I was not allowed to attend school as my principal and the board decided if I would be allowed to return at all, and I would be stripped of all leadership positions. I wasn’t allowed to attend sports games to watch my brother play basketball or baseball, and I wouldn’t be allowed on campus until after the baby was born. I would be allowed to receive my diploma, but I would have to take all my classes at home, and wouldn’t be allowed to walk at graduation.
"This felt overly harsh to me and my parents, so my dad asked the principal and the board to reconsider. He argued that the only difference between me and other seniors who had broken the school’s moral code in various ways was that I was pregnant, and they were trying to hide me away because they were embarrassed by my visible sin. My principal and the board finally changed their decision: I would be allowed back to finish the year with my classmates, but I couldn’t be in any leadership positions in school clubs, and I still couldn’t walk at graduation.
"On top of all of this, my principal called an assembly of the entire high school, and invited school families, to tell everyone what had happened. He told me I didn’t need to be there, but I volunteered to tell them myself. I was a senior and a campus leader, so I felt like I should stand there myself and tell them what I did.
"In front of the whole school, I got up and started to read a statement that I wrote, explaining that I had broken the rules, that I was repentant and that I asked for forgiveness. But I couldn’t get through it. My dad had to read some of it while I composed myself. It was one of the hardest things I ever did, and I’m so sorry, not for myself, but for any girl in that audience who will get pregnant in the future and may consider abortion because of what I had to go through.
"After that, I got involved with Students for Life of America, as I wanted to use my story to help other girls like me. Part of their mission is to help pregnant girls and teenage mothers on campuses like myself who are treated unfairly. They had seen similar situations and after trying to persuade the school privately, which was unsuccessful, we decided to take my story to the media in hopes to create a national conversation about how girls like me should be treated.
"When girls like me who go to pro-life schools make a brave pro-life decision, we shouldn’t be hidden away in shame. The sin that got us into this situation is not worth celebrating, but after confession and forgiveness take place, we should be supported and treated like any other student. What we are going through is tough enough. Having to deal with the added shame of being treated like an outcast is nothing that any girl should have to go through.
"Many of the people in my town and at my school who had supported me and my family have turned on us since I went public, feeling that all the scrutiny was hurting Heritage Academy’s reputation. We started getting nasty emails, angry posts on social media and rude remarks in person. People who had been supportive before are now telling me to shut up, suck it up and grow up. Because of the volume of anger from the community, my parents have decided to keep my brother and me at home for the rest of the school year.
"I’m still not allowed to walk at graduation this month, but I still wouldn’t change my decision to keep my baby — a boy, who I want to name Greyson. Even though it’s been hard losing support in my town, even though my school has drawn out my punishment over months, I want other girls in my position to know you don’t have to give in to pressure or fear of judgment.
"My school could have made an example of how to treat a student who made a mistake, owned up to it, accepted the consequences, and is now being supported in her decision to choose life. But they didn’t. It is my hope that the next Christian school will make the right decision when the time comes."
Think this young lady doesn't have quite a future ahead of her? This is yet another egregious example of sick religion. Perpetrated by haughty, galling, self-righteous nazis. Think the Head Honcho of their religion would have treated her like these pieces of shit did? Pregnant young women must be supported whether they choose to carry the baby to term, -- or abort. The choice is theirs. The hypocrisy of religious nazis reeks.
The State of Virginia, like all others, believes it owns your body womb to tomb. To say nothing of the federal government. Liberty? What's that? No longer exists in the fascist police-state we now live in. In follow up to an earlier edition of this publication and elsewhere, The Washington Post reports:
"The police brought cadaver dogs to search the small redbrick rancher in this suburban community south of Richmond. On that March day more than a year ago, they were seeking “any evidence associated with the delivery and death of a newborn child whether alive or deceased,” according to the affidavit for the search warrant. What they found buried in the back yard — the skeletal remains of a fetus — led to the indictment last month of a 43-year-old woman who lived there. Michelle Frances Roberts is accused of self-aborting in the third trimester of her pregnancy. She was arrested March 29 this year on felony charges of “producing abortion or miscarriage.” The rarely invoked law, written in 1950, prohibits giving a pregnant woman a drug or taking any action “with intent to destroy her unborn child.”
What the hell business is it of our goddamned nazi government to dictate what a woman can and cannot do with her uterus?
"Roberts, who remains in jail in Chesterfield, has denied the charges. According to the police, she told investigators she gave birth to a baby boy in the house, but he died afterward, and she buried him in the back yard. Police and prosecutors have revealed little about the evidence that led to the unusual charge against Roberts, who court records show has a history of drug use."
Where is the evidence against this woman? Why are the jackbooted bastards in blue sitting on it? Could it be they indeed have shit squat? Get this:
"Commonwealth Assistant Attorney Shawn Gobble refused to comment on the case. Roberts’ defense attorney, H. Pratt Cook III, also declined to talk about the charge his client is facing. She is scheduled to appear in court Monday for a status hearing on the case, which has alarmed women’s rights advocates in Virginia."
As well it should. Women no longer have the right to do with their uterus as they damn well please all over this country. Republican nazis in state legislatures have determinedly infringed on the constitutional right to abort. Done so to impose their goddamned perverse ideological and religious views on all by statute. In direct violation of the First Amendment Establishment Clause, church-state separation, that is, freedom from religion.
“It is unclear from the questionable, selective release of information by the Chesterfield police exactly what happened here,” said Gail Deady, the Secular Society Women’s Rights legal fellow for the Virginia ACLU. “But it appears that this is another example of overreach and targeting of a pregnant woman in an attempt to shame and punish her for her circumstances.”
Appears to be egregious abuse of power by the criminal jackbooted bastards in blue and prosecutors. Forensic examination of the corpse should have determined whether or not it was stillborn, died of natural causes after birth, or was murdered. Why are the assholes in government sitting on this information?
"But a neighbor who saw the police cars arrive on their street said the discovery of the remains near a big tree in the back yard sent chills through her body: “It wasn’t right. She should have gone to a doctor. If you don’t want the baby, you go to the doctor.”
It's her uterus, her body, not yours. Not that of this goddamned overbearing government. Who the hell are you to judge her? Moreover, is this goddamned government effectively accusing her of practicing medicine on her body without a license? Is that what this is about? If so, then why wasn't she so charged? Liberty? What's that? The 'freedom' to do what you're told?
"The law has been used at least once before by Virginia authorities to charge a woman with harming her unborn child, according to the Richmond Times-Dispatch. In 2005, a Suffolk woman was prosecuted for shooting herself in the abdomen on her due date and then blaming her injury on a man. But a circuit court judge dismissed the charge, saying the law was not intended to punish expectant mothers. It was aimed at the actions of others."
Wouldn't want to confuse the Nazi Right with the truth, would we?
"Repeated efforts by state legislators to pass a law making it a crime for a pregnant woman to self-abort were unsuccessful."
As well they should have been. Our bodies do not belong to this goddamned nazi government. Why shouldn't we be able to self-treat? Practicing medicine without a license on another person is indeed quite a different matter. Certainly, the woman would have been well advised to have sought professional medical care. Not the point, however. It's her body. Does not belong to the goddamned Republican Nazi Right.
"Deady said she is concerned about the repercussions of the Roberts prosecution. “It could mean anyone who has a miscarriage could be subjected to an investigation by police and thrown in jail,” she argued."
Exactly, precisely, the problem with this outrageous, egregious governmental overreach. Be interesting to see how this case is resolved. No more than concerted, determined, pernicious abrogation of all civil and constitutional rights and liberties by GOP 'law and order' national socialists, fascists, nazis determined to impose their achingly perverse religious and ideological views on all by statute. In direct violation of the First Amendment Establishment Clause, church-state separation, that is freedom from religion.
Here is the take of Planned Parenthood on confirmation of the Gorsuch nazi:
They did it. It took an unprecedented blockade of President Obama's highly qualified nominee. It took undoing Senate rules and dismantling decades of American democratic tradition. It meant ignoring the clear threat to our fundamental rights. But President Trump's allies in the Senate did it: They just voted to confirm Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court by a razor-thin vote.
The Supreme Court will now be even more hostile to reproductive health and rights. We need to be ready to fight back — in the courts, in statehouses, and in communities nationwide. Click here to make an emergency gift right now.
The Senate just voted to confirm Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court. His out-of-touch judicial record will threaten reproductive health and rights for decades to come.
Help us stand strong for patients — in the courts and beyond: Make an emergency gift to Planned Parenthood.

Over the next few years, the Supreme Court could rule on laws that undermine access to basic health care, target the LGBTQ community for discrimination, and deny the essential right to safe and legal abortion. Justice Gorsuch has a history of going to extraordinary lengths to interfere with reproductive health and rights, and his alarming record and judicial philosophy leave no doubt that he will vote to restrict access to abortion.
But I promise you this: Planned Parenthood will not back down in the face of an increasingly hostile Supreme Court. We'll be there for every fight, and we'll do whatever it takes to defend the patients who are counting on us.
Tim, I'm asking you to be there, too. Chip in now with an emergency gift to help make sure we're ready for whatever comes next.
It's bad enough that the Supreme Court will now have one more justice who does not believe the Constitution protects a woman's right to safe, legal abortion. But this isn't just about the Supreme Court. Now, lawmakers in Congress and state legislatures will be emboldened to pass even more extreme laws targeting birth control, abortion, and other essential care.
These renewed attacks will be a strain on our resources — but together, we can stand strong. Please, make your emergency gift now.
I have been so proud to
stand with the more than 100,000 Planned Parenthood supporters who spoke
out against the Gorsuch nomination. Senate leaders were forced to go to
extreme measures to push this nomination through — and they know as well
as we do that this fight isn't over yet. Thank you for standing with us,
today and always.
Cecile Richards, President
Planned Parenthood Federation of America
Readers are again advised Liberty In Peril is published under survival conditions. No public or private financial support of any kind is received. This writer self funds this publication. Moreover, Planned Parenthood has received no financial gift from this publication or writer, only moral support.
The Trump nazi and his henchmen will never be confused with the truth. NBC News reports:
"The Trump administration's decision to pull support from a United Nations family planning agency hurts some of the world's most desperate women and girls, advocates said Tuesday. The State Department announced late Monday that it was yanking money from the UN Population Fund (UNFPA), which focuses on family planning, help for pregnant women and new babies."
Thought Republican nazis were the party of the family? Clearly, not.
"Republican presidents, backed by conservatives, have routinely stopped funding the UNFPA, while Democratic presidents, most recently the Obama administration, provide the cash. At issue is whether the UNFPA supports some of the actions taken by China in the past as part of its one-child-per-family policy, including forced abortions and sterilizations. Jalan said there is no evidence the UNFPA has supported the policy and added that the agency has in fact worked with the Chinese government to help reverse it. "We were really pushing for a factual review based on evidence and we didn't see that," she said. "We were not surprised that the Trump administration would move to defund UNFPA. However, we were incredibly surprised that the administration would do so without any evidence."
Par for the course for GOP nazis. The problem is these fascist bastards are determined to force their perverse religious and ideological views on all. Across the universe. Not just here in Nazi America.
"Just days after he was inaugurated, Trump also reinstated the Mexico City policy, also known as the global gag rule, stopping funding for any group involved in any way with abortions. This is also a policy that's gone back and forth depending on the party holding the White House."
Readers are reminded the Trump nazi was for abortion rights before he was against them. Amazing what difference running for office can make in one's long held principles, isn't it?
"Foreign policy should be rooted in evidence and results, not ideology and the politics of punishment," said Shannon Kowalski of the International Women's Health Coalition."
Not to Republican nazis. Too damned aggressively stupid, hopelessly ignorant.
While Nazi Texas failed to prosecute, California hasn't made the same mistake. CBS News reports:
"California prosecutors on Tuesday charged two anti-abortion activists who made undercover videos of themselves trying to buy fetal tissue from Planned Parenthood with 15 felonies, saying they invaded the privacy of medical providers by filming without consent. State Attorney General Xavier Becerra announced the charges against David Daleiden of Davis, California, and Sandra Merritt of San Jose. The two operate the Irvine-based Center for Medical Progress."
The viciousness of the Nazi Right once again raises its ugly head.
"The allegations say the pair filmed 14 people without permission between October 2013 and July 2015 in Los Angeles, San Francisco and El Dorado counties. One felony count was filed for each person. The 15th was for criminal conspiracy to invade privacy. Becerra says they used a fictitious bioresearch company to meet with women’s health care providers and covertly record them."
This psychotic shit never seems to end. Hopefully, this time they'll finally get their comeuppance. Didn't stop the bastards from making the same goddamned phony excuses:
"Daleiden, in an email to The Associated Press, said the “bogus” charges are coming from “Planned Parenthood’s political cronies.” “The public knows the real criminals are Planned Parenthood and their business partners,” Daleiden said."
The real criminals are you nazi sons of bitches who insist on imposing your achingly perverse ideological and religious views on the rest of us.
Think these very same pieces of shit haven't done this before? Wake up:
"Daleiden and Merritt had previously been indicted in Texas on similar charges in January of 2016, but all of the charges were eventually dropped by July as prosecutors said a grand jury had overstepped its authority. The grand jury had originally been convened to investigate Planned Parenthood, but after finding no wrongdoing turned around and indicted Daleiden and Merritt instead."
A Texas Grand Jury exonerated Planned Parenthood of any criminal wrongdoing. Yet, the Nazi State of Texas refused to prosecute these two pieces of human excrement who were indicted. Denied Planned Parenthood justice. Selective prosecution. No equal treatment. No justice. Nazi Texas.
Texas GOP fascists have certainly been emboldened by the Trump nazi and his henchmen. Texas Standard reports:
"Wednesday, the Texas Senate gave preliminary approval to a measure that would require women to purchase separate health coverage for abortion. Senate Bill 20 passed the upper chamber with a vote of 19-10. The bill would still allow health plans to cover abortions that are deemed medically necessary – but it doesn’t include coverage for women who have been victims of rape or incest."
Anything to make it more difficult, more expensive to exercise the constitutional right to abort. These goddamned Republican nazis do all they can to impose their outrageously perverse ideological and religious views on all by statute. In direct violation of the First Amendment Establishment Clause, church-state separation, that is, freedom from religion.
No one provides care like Planned Parenthood. Think not? Wake up. GOP nazis are bamboozling you. CBS News reports:
"Last summer, Texas gave $1.6 million to an anti-abortion organization called the Heidi Group to help strengthen small clinics that specialize in women’s health like Planned Parenthood but don’t offer abortions. The goal was to help the clinics boost their patient rolls and show there would be no gap in services if the nation’s largest abortion provider had to scale back."
A miserable failure, Republican fascists remain too gutless to concede.
"The effort offered a model other conservative states could follow if Republicans make their long-sought dream of defunding Planned Parenthood a reality under President Donald Trump. Several states are already moving to curtail the organization’s funds."
To unconstitutionally impose their achingly perverse ideological and religious views by statute. In direct violation of the First Amendment Establishment Clause, church-state separation, that is, freedom from religion. Hear the rumble?
"But eight months later, the Heidi Group has little to show for its work. An Associated Press review found the nonprofit has done little of the outreach it promised, such as helping clinics promote their services on Facebook, or airing public service announcements. It hasn’t made good on plans to establish a 1-800 number to help women find providers or ensure that all clinics have updated websites."
Where's the $1.6 million? Where's the criminal investigation? Where? Who lined their pockets? Thought you GOP nazis were conservatives.
"Neither the group nor state officials would say how many patients have been served so far by the private clinics."
Why not? Where's the transparency? Accountability, for obviously misused taxpayer funds?
"The Heidi Group is led by Carol Everett, a prominent anti-abortion activist and influential conservative force in the Texas Legislature."
Why isn't this woman and her group being criminally investigated? Where's the accountability? Yet, Republican nazis in the Legislature remain gutlessly, hypocritically, deafeningly silent.
"The Heidi Group is an evangelical nonprofit that started in the 1990s and is best known for promoting alternatives to abortion. It operates with a relatively small budget, taking in about $186,000 in grants and donations in 2015, according to tax records, and had not been doing patient care."
Then, why did GOP nazis give them $1.6 million? Why?
The GOP plan also defunds Planned Parenthood. The Washington Times reports:
"Planned Parenthood has firmly rejected a proposal by President Trump offering to preserve federal funding for the women’s health organization if it stopped providing abortion services."
The Trump nazi and his henchmen simply can't accept the fact abortion is a constitutional right as affirmed by the Supreme Court. The Trump nazi, his henchmen, and fascists in the Republican Party remain hell bent on eviscerating the First Amendment Establishment Clause, church-state separation, that is, freedom from religion. In direct violation of their oaths of office to protect and defend the United States Constitution.
"Mr. Trump reportedly confirmed Monday to The New York Times that an informal proposal was made to Planned Parenthood offering to maintain federal funding — about $500 million each year — if the organization ended abortion procedures. Sources told the newspaper that White House officials even suggested there could be an increase in that funding if they accepted the deal."
Mr. Trump remains an achingly delusional, duplicitous nazi. What else would be expected of this goddamned misogynist fascist?
"Dawn Laguens, Planned Parenthood’s executive vice president and chief brand officer, told The Times that no federal funds are used to pay for abortions. “Offering money to Planned Parenthood to abandon our patients and our values is not a deal that we will ever accept,” she said. “Providing critical health care services for millions of American women is nonnegotiable.”
F--k the nazi Republican Party. National socialists, fascists. Remain an exigent threat to all civil and constitutional rights and liberties. ... Right, TL?
Have to admire Planned Parenthood for indeed standing tall against the Trump nazi:
“Planned Parenthood is proud to provide abortion—a necessary service that’s as vital to our mission as birth control or cancer screenings,” she tweeted. “We won’t back down in the face of threats or intimidation, or turn our backs on the patients who count on us. Not today, tomorrow, not ever.”
"In a longer statement, Ms. Richards said, “The White House proposal that Planned Parenthood stop providing abortion is the same demand opponents of women’s health have been pushing for decades, as a part of their longstanding effort to end women’s access to safe, legal abortion. Planned Parenthood has always stood strong against these attacks on our patients and their ability to access the full range of reproductive health care. We are glad that the White House understands that taking away the preventive care Planned Parenthood provides is deeply unpopular and would be a disaster for women’s health care.”
Federal funds do not pay for abortion. At Planned Parenthood, we don’t
agree with this harmful policy—but it’s the law & we follow it.
— Cecile Richards (@CecileRichards) March 6, 2017"
Never, ever, never confuse the Trump nazi, his henchmen, and fascists in the Republican Party with the truth. Remain too damned aggressively stupid, hopelessly ignorant. -- Not that the goddamned Democrats are any better, however. Where the hell have they been since the assassination of JFK? Where?
Interesting quote from Fox News:
"In a response to the report of the proposal, Planned Parenthood Federation of America President Cecile Richards says the group "will always stand for women's ability to make decisions about their health and lives, without interference from politicians."
Indeed. Quite amazingly, the Trump nazi was for abortion rights before he was against them.
Another interesting court loss for the State of Texas. Texas Public Radio reports:
"U.S. District Judge Sam Sparks ruled Tuesday afternoon that Texas clinics affiliated with Planned Parenthood can continue to care for patients under the state’s Medicaid program, a phew-worthy victory for reproductive rights advocates and a loss for the state's GOP leaders. In his ruling, Sparks wrote that the state's arguments in the case were "the building blocks of a best-selling novel rather than a case concerning the interplay of federal and state authority through the Medicaid program." "After reviewing the evidence currently in the record, the Court finds the Inspector General, and thus HHSC, likely acted to disenroll qualified health care providers from Medicaid without cause," the ruling read. "Such action would deprive Medicaid patients of their statutory right to obtain health care from their chosen qualified provider."
The Texas Attorney General, himself under criminal indictment and about to be tried, intends to appeal the Sparks ruling.
Republican national socialists in Arkansas have certainly been emboldened by the Trump nazi. Get this. CNN reports:
"A new Arkansas law will let a husband sue a doctor to stop his wife from getting an abortion. And it makes no exception for cases of spousal rape."
... Hey, TL? Fits right in with psychotic GOP fascists insanely believing they own the "'lil' lady," doesn't it? No more than human chattel, right? After all, don't Republican nazis also believe they own a woman's uterus? Isn't that why these achingly clueless bastards do all they can to deprive women of the constitutional right to abortion? After all, she's too damned stupid to decide for herself, isn't she? You guys haughtily know what's 'best,' don't you? More than willing to dictate to her what she can and cannot do, right?
"The law, called the Arkansas Unborn Child Protection From Dismemberment Abortion Act, was passed and signed by Arkansas Gov. Asa Hutchinson, and goes into effect later this year. It prohibits dismemberment abortion, the most common procedure used in second-trimester abortions."
Who the hell are these Republican nazis to, in effect, practice medicine without a license? To force their outrageously perverse religious and ideological views on all? In direct violation of the First Amendment Establishment Clause, that is church-state separation, freedom from religion.
"A clause in the law states that the husband of a woman getting the abortion can sue the doctor to stop his wife's abortion. The husband has to be the father of the child. And because there's no exemption in the law for rape or incest, a woman's rapist could theoretically file suit to stop the abortion."
How about that? Sick religion. Imposed by psychotic Republican nazis.
"The ACLU of Arkansas claims the law is unconstitutional and plans to challenge it in court before it goes into effect."
Excellent. Go for it. ... Hey, ladies? Should this atrocious law go into effect, know what to do? Cut the bastard off cold turkey. No sex until repeal.
The following carefully annotated passage from a recent Cruz Newsletter illustrates precisely the fanaticism of not only Cruz, but the Trump nazi and the rest of the Republican Party:
"Sen. Cruz released the following statement in recognition of the March for Life, where millions of Americans will gather in D.C. and across the nation in defense of policies at all levels of government that defend innocent life:
... But first, does the Senator mean all the innocent executed in Nazi Texas for crimes they did not commit? All the soldiers killed in action since the end of the Second World War to line the bottomless pockets of corporate war profiteers and their shareholders? All innocent unarmed citizens murdered by the criminal jackbooted bastards in blue with impunity? The list can go on and on. Yet, nazis like "Screws Loose" Cruz couldn't care less.
“As millions of Americans gather in D.C. and cities all across the country today to recognize the fundamental right to life, we mourn and remember the 57 million innocent, unborn lives that have been ended by abortion since Roe v. Wade was decided 44 years ago. I want to thank all who are marching today and all who are fighting tirelessly to rectify this injustice and defend the unborn."
The Senator does not recognize "the fundamental right to life." If he did, he'd condemn the State of Texas for executing innocent citizens, all the wars fought only to line corporate coffers and the pockets of shareholders, all the criminal jackbooted bastards in blue who murder on the job with impunity. This nazi piece of shit cannot grasp the fact he and his fellow lunatics have no right to dictate to a woman what she can and cannot do with her uterus. That it's egregiously un-American to force his outrageously perverse ideological and religious views on others through the force of law.
"Their heroic efforts continue to speak the truth in love and make great strides in restoring the sanctity of life throughout the 50 states."
"Heroic?' How is it "heroic" to force your haughty beliefs on others, Senator? Who's "truth"? That of a nazi who has no clue what "love" is? Only how to abrogate all civil and constitutional rights and liberties. In direct violation of your oath of office to protect and defend the United States Constitution including the Bill of Rights. This piece of shit clearly has no idea what the First Amendment Establishment Clause, that is church-state separation, freedom from religion truly means.
"I stand with you all and remain firmly committed to efforts that will minimize and, hopefully one day, put an end to the scourge of abortion upon our society."
The true "scourge", Senator, is your determination, and those of others who 'think' like you, to eviscerate church-state separation guarantied by the First Amendment, that is, force your perverse ideological views and religious beliefs on the rest of us. Your determination to dictate what a woman can and cannot do with her uterus is achingly haughty, unbecoming a United States Senator.
"With your efforts we can bring a light of hope and restore a culture of life in America. Each life is a gift from God. Without life, there is no liberty."
Conveniently forget, Senator? Millions of U.S. military personnel have died on the battlefield defending the very same civil and constitutional rights and liberties you remain so desperate to eviscerate. Including the constitutional right to abort.
"So today, and every day, we stand united for life, and we resolve to always cherish and defend it."
Senator, like the Trump nazi, you remain a goddamned liar. You gutlessly ignore all the murders committed on the job by the criminal jackbooted bastards in blue, all the needless deaths on the battlefield to line corporate coffers of war profiteers and their shareholders, to say nothing of all the innocent executed in the not-so-free State of Nazi Texas. Defense of innocent life? You haven't a clue you nazi son of a bitch.
"Sen. Cruz has been a leader in efforts to defend life throughout his career. Earlier this week, he joined with colleagues to reintroduce the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act, sponsored by Sen. Ben Sasse, which requires that a child born alive as a result of an abortion must be given the same degree of health care as any other child born alive at that gestational stage."
What are you talking about Senator? Take your head out of your ass. Ignorance is unbecoming. Conveniently forget? Partial birth abortion procedures were performed because clueless fascist bastards like you were all too ready to indict doctors performing abortions with murder. You and your fellow goddamned nazis do all you can to deny woman the constitutional right to an abortion.
"He also advocated last Friday in a Senate resolution to reinstate the Mexico City policy to ensure that American taxpayer dollars are not spent to promote abortion in foreign countries."
As in our formerly great nation that used to believe in liberty, it's none of your goddamned business to dictate to women in other countries what they can and cannot do with their uterus, Senator.
"After years of not being enforced under the Obama Administration, President Donald Trump reinstated the Mexico City policy via executive order earlier this week."
Proof positive the Trump nazi, just like "Screws Loose" Cruz, has intentionally abrogated his oath of office to protect and defend the United States Constitution including the Bill of Rights. ... What does it feel like to be a traitor, Senator?
"In the U.S. Senate, Sen. Cruz has led efforts to take away taxpayer dollars from Planned Parenthood and advocated for an investigation into abortion practices in the U.S. to put a stop to facilities and doctors illegally performing late term abortions and infanticide."
More unadulterated bullshit, egregious distortion of reality. Cruz, like the Trump nazi, is a congenital liar. What he claims is simply untrue. Perpetrated to force his perverse ideological and religious views on the rest of us.
"As Solicitor General of Texas he led the charge on behalf of 13 states to successfully defend a federal law that bans partial birth abortion before the U.S. Supreme Court."
... A determinedly national socialist, fascist Supreme Court dominated by the Scalia nazi at the time and his equally national socialist compadres.
Further proof of the above? GOP nazis in Arkansas are again stupidly, figuratively shooting themselves in the ass. ABC News reports:
"Arkansas is poised to become the third state to ban a commonly used second-trimester abortion procedure under restrictions lawmakers approved Thursday that are expected to face a legal challenge. The majority-GOP Senate voted 25-6 to ban the procedure known as dilation and evacuation, which abortion-rights supporters contend is the safest and most common procedure used in second-trimester abortions. The legislation now goes to the desk of Republican Gov. Asa Hutchinson, who said he will sign it into law as soon as Thursday afternoon."
These goddamned Republican nazis never seem to tire of forcing their outrageously perverse ideological and religious views on all. In direct violation of the First Amendment Establishment Clause, that is, church-state separation, freedom from religion. These haughty GOP self-righteous fascist bastards insist on practicing medicine without a license. Yet, keep getting returned to office.
The Trump nazi has begun the assault on abortion rights both here and abroad. NBC News reports:
"With the stroke of a pen, President Donald Trump reinstated a controversial rule that blocks foreign aid for family planning services."
Once again the Trump nazi has clearly demonstrated his profound ignorance and that of the Republican Party. These fascist pieces of shit continue to drag their knuckles, give Neanderthals a bad name.
"Known as the "Mexico City policy" or the "Global Gag Rule," the policy bars foreign aid or federal funding for international programs that provide abortions — or even information about the procedure."
The Nazi Right wishes not only to impose their perverse ideological and religious views on the American public, but foreigners as well.
"Under the rule, USAID would be unable to provide funds to non-governmental organizations that provide referrals or counseling for abortion services, or advocate for the same. NGOs that provide abortions — except in the case of rape, incest or life endangerment — would also be ineligible for aid."
This is no more than Evangelical Nazism. Achingly, un-American. If there is no reproductive freedom, there is no freedom at all. A Republican nazi ignorantly believes reproductive freedom is men keeping it in their pants, flies up. Women keeping their panties on and legs crossed.
"Pro-choice groups see the law's return as a step backwards after years of progress. Serra Sippel, president of the Center for Health and Gender Equality, said that in addition to reducing women's access to contraceptives and safe abortions, the measure could hamper HIV prevention efforts abroad and force health clinics in developing countries to close their doors."
... And then these GOP nazis claim to believe in freedom? Give me a goddamned break. The hypocrisy reeks.
In another article, NBC News reports:
"The sweeping new anti-abortion policy signed by President Donald Trump Monday may have the opposite effect to what's intended, leading to many more abortions, aid groups say. It could also mean more young women will die in childbirth, and years of progress in fighting HIV will be lost, they said."
All to force perverse GOP national socialist ideological and religious views on all in the universe. Haughty, isn't it? Aryan arrogant, as well.
"The enactment of the Global Gag Rule will cut off much-needed U.S. funds to international providers of family planning," said Serena Jiwani of the United Nations Foundation. "When the policy was last enacted under President Bush, health care clinics in many countries were forced to close and outreach services for the hardest to reach populations were eliminated, leaving many of the world's poorest people without access to critical services, such as maternal and child health care, HIV testing and counseling, and contraceptives, including condoms."
Eminently 'Christian' of the Trump nazi, his henchmen, and sick sycophants in the Republican Party, isn't it?
"Trump's Global Gag Rule will only lead to increases in unintended pregnancies, unsafe abortions, maternal and newborn deaths. This harmful policy undermines American democratic values of free-speech and imposes an anti-woman agenda," said Nancy Northup, president and CEO of the Center for Reproductive Rights."
Republican fascists have no shame. Too damned aggressively stupid.
Another egregious abrogation of the right to abortion. The Washington Post reports:
"A Tennessee woman is seeking $1.5 million from law enforcement officials in a federal lawsuit that claims she was denied access to abortion while incarcerated in a county jail."
Sue the living shit out of the bastards. Being incarcerated does not give authorities the right to abrogate all civil and constitutional rights and liberties.
"Kei’choura Cathey found out she was pregnant in August 2015, about two weeks after she was arrested in Maury County, about 50 miles outside of Nashville. According to a complaint filed in a Tennessee federal court in late December, Maury County Sheriff Bucky Rowland told Cathey that his department would not pay to transport her to a clinic unless the abortion is medically necessary or the pregnancy is the result of rape or incest."
This piece of law enforcement human excrement does not get to make this judgment.
"Through her attorney, Cathey, who was arrested on robbery and murder conspiracy charges, sought to lower her bond. But by the time she was able to pay her bond in January 2016, she was more than halfway into her pregnancy, the complaint said. Abortion past the second trimester is illegal. Cathey ended up giving birth in April."
Authorities need to be forced to pay for the care of her child up to the age of majority.
"The lawsuit claims that denying Cathey’s request inflicted cruel and unusual punishment on her — a violation of the Eighth Amendment. It also alleges violation of Cathey’s right to choose to get an abortion protected under the 14th Amendment. Rowland, the sheriff’s department and Maury County, which are all named as defendants, showed “deliberate indifference to a serious medical need” by failing to establish policies regarding inmates’ access to abortion, the complaint said."
The only thing the nazi bastards understand is money. Legally, loot the living shit out of them.
The nazi State of Kentucky is determined to shit on all civil and constitutional rights and liberties. The Washington Times reports:
"Republican lawmakers in Kentucky used their new majority in the state Legislature to pass bills targeting labor unions and abortion on Saturday over the shouts of hundreds of protesters that packed the cavernous Capitol."
This is precisely what's called for. Ferocious, but peaceful, protest.
"With chants of “we will remember in November” seeping through the closed doors of the state Senate, lawmakers gave final passage to a bill saying employers cannot force workers to pay dues to labor unions that represent them in collective bargaining. They also repealed a law guaranteeing higher wages for construction workers on publicly financed projects. And they voted to require a woman seeking an abortion to first undergo an ultrasound and listen to the fetal heartbeat."
Those aggrieved, should this legislation be signed into law, need to find an attorney and sue the living shit out of the nazi bastards.
As in nazi Texas, the Kentucky Legislature is practicing medicine without a license. CNN reports:
"House Bill 2 requires a physician or technician to perform an ultrasound, describe and display the ultrasound images to the mother, and provide audio of the fetal heartbeat to the mother before she may have an abortion."
All medically unnecessary. Direct violation of the First Amendment Establishment Clause, that is, church-state separation, freedom from religion.
Nazi Republicans in Texas will not be confused by the truth no matter what. Carefully edited, deliberately contrived videos against Planned Parenthood were exposed for what they were: duplicitous phony distortion of reality. Didn't stop the nazis in government, however, from using them against this fine organization that serves the best interests of the public. The Statesman reports:
"State officials have made good on a promise made more than a year ago to oust Planned Parenthood from Medicaid after they said undercover videos of fetal tissue practices showed that the organization was unsafe and professionally incompetent. The same justification was stated in a letter Tuesday that gave the organization final notice of removal from the Medicaid program."
All phony. Discredited bullshit. No more than an egregiously unconstitutional effort by GOP nazis in Texas to force their outrageously perverse ideological and religious views on all in direct violation of The First Amendment Establishment Clause, church-state separation, that is freedom from religion. Wouldn't want to confuse these Republican nazis with the truth, would we? Get this:
"Planned Parenthood was cleared of any wrongdoing in court, and officials vowed Wednesday to continue in a lawsuit filed pre-emptively to fight the cuts."
Good for them. Good for the public. Good for liberty. Nazism must be peacefully, but ferociously resisted.
"Texans deserve to decide where to receive their health care, and for more than 80 years they have counted on Planned Parenthood of Greater Texas for that care. In the days ahead, we will take every step necessary to ensure Medicaid patients can continue to count on Planned Parenthood for quality, accessible health care," said Ken Lambrecht, president of the Planned Parenthood of Greater Texas, which serves Austin."
Nazi Republicans don't think so. The Governor supports this atrocity against the public he and his fellow nazis are imposing. -- The readership is reminded this is the very same fascist son of a bitch, who as Texas Attorney General, refused to answer a complaint filed by this writer against the criminals at Wells Fargo. How much were you bribed, Governor? How much do you receive in corporate financial support?
"In January, a Harris County grand jury cleared the organization of any unlawful practices as alleged in the videos and instead indicted two abortion opponents involved with shooting the undercover videos--David Daleiden, founder of the anti-abortion group Center for Medical Progress, and Sandra Merritt--for tampering with a governmental record. Daleiden was also indicted on a misdemeanor charge related to his attempt to buy human tissue in the video. All charges against the pair were eventually dismissed."
This is the problem. The government got it half right. There needs to be a criminal investigation as to whether or not the Nazi Right bought off 'prosecutors' to secure dismissal of all charges against the two criminals responsible for the fiasco.
Amazing how rabid the anti-choice national socialist crowd has become. ABC 6 out of Meridian, Idaho reports:
"Planned Parenthood is suing Stanton Healthcare after they claim the pro-life clinic invited people to harass patients and employees at the Meridian clinic. The two clinics share a parking lot in Meridian. Planned Parenthood alleges people are blocking patients and employees from getting out of their cars, photographing their license plates, protesting and directing them away from Planned Parenthood and toward Stanton Healthcare's mobile services bus. Founder and CEO of Stanton Healthcare, Brandi Swindell, says the claims in the lawsuit are slanderous and false."
Someone is clearly lying. Both sides can't be telling the truth. Guess who? This shit is going on all over the country. Be interesting to see what happens with the suit.
In follow up to the last edition, federal Judge Sam Sparks in Austin put a stay on the Governor's new rules requiring an aborted fetus be buried or cremated until he (the Judge) has the chance to conduct a hearing shortly. The Statesman reports:
"The regulation was set to go into effect Monday. Sparks suspended it until Jan. 6, by which time he will have heard two days of testimony and made a decision about whether to block the rule permanently, as lawyers representing abortion providers have asked him to do."
Amazing how the Nazi Right continues to deliberately shit on the First Amendment Establishment Clause.
"Sparks initially requested the state to voluntarily delay implementing the rule until he could make a ruling, and he appeared agitated at the state's refusal to do so. "This is the first time the state of Texas has ever said it was going to go ahead (with implementing a regulation) when there's a suit of substance before" a federal court, Sparks said from the bench."
Not surprising, is it? Republican nazis have been emboldened by the election of the nation's first national socialist, fascist 'President.'
"David Brown, a lawyer for the Center for Reproductive Rights who argued the case for the abortion providers, said the fetal remains rule was a political response to the Supreme Court's decision and had little to do with the agency's mission of health services."
Indeed, appears to be the case. Highly indicative of the concerted nazification of our formerly great state. -- A state where our national socialist Governor, then Attorney General, failed to do anything about the criminal activity of Wells Fargo. Again, Governor, did the criminals at Wells Fargo bribe you?
"The rule is intended to send a message to the Supreme Court that Texas is going to defy them and to send a message to women that the state's ideology is more important than women's liberty," Brown said."
Indeed, a theme that has been repeated over and over and over again in this publication.
In follow up to the last edition, Texas is about to be sued vis a vis its latest restrictions on abortion. NBC News reports:
"Women's rights groups said they would file a court challenge Monday to the latest attempt by Texas legislators to restrict access to abortion."
This is indeed good news. These nazi bastards in the Republican Party are forcing their outrageously perverse religious and ideological views on all in direct violation of the Establishment Clause First Amendment, that is, church-state separation, freedom from religion.
"Under a law that takes effect December 19, embryonic and fetal tissue resulting from abortions must be buried or cremated, regardless of the woman's religious beliefs or personal wishes."
Who the hell are these goddamned nazis to force their views on women?
"The state's Republican governor, Greg Abbott, approved the legislation. He said fetal tissue remains should not be "treated like medical waste and disposed of in landfills." But the Center for Reproductive Rights, and other groups, in announcing they would file the legal challenge, said the rules were designed "to restrict a woman's right to access safe and legal abortions by increasing the cost of reproductive health care services and the shame and stigma surrounding abortion and pregnancy loss."
The Governor and his equally national socialist, fascist compadres in the Republican Party are forcing their outrageously perverse views on all. The GOP remains an exigent threat to all civil and constitutional rights and liberties. The Democrats are just as bad. They've done nothing to impede the rise of fascism perpetrated by the GOP as well as Republican efforts to impose The Fourth Reich. They haven't even recently walked out of the Legislature in protest.
Nazism is alive and well in the not-so-great state of Oklahoma. ABC News reports:
"Oklahoma plans to force hospitals, nursing homes, restaurants and public schools to post signs inside public restrooms directing pregnant women where to receive services as part of an effort to reduce abortions in the state."
A direct violation of the constitutional right to an abortion.
"The State Board of Health will consider regulations for the signs on Tuesday. Businesses and other organizations will have to pay an estimated $2.3 million to put up the signs because the Legislature didn't approve any money for them."
No more than another unfunded mandate forced on businesses by Republican nazis desperate to impose their outrageously perverse ideological and religious views on all in direct violation of the First Amendment Establishment Clause, church-state separation, that is, freedom from religion.
Another direct attack on reproductive freedom. CNN reports:
"Ohio Gov. John Kasich vetoed a measure that would have outlawed abortions after a fetal heartbeat is detected while approving a law that prevents them after 20 weeks of pregnancy."
The nazi son of a bitch at least got it half right. Who the hell is the state to dictate when a woman can and cannot have an abortion? It's her uterus. Not theirs. Why are these nazis forcing their outrageously perverse religious and ideological views on women in direct violation of the First Amendment Establishment Clause, church-state separation, that is, freedom from religion?
This is what what you get when you mix church and state. The Statesman reports:
"A Tennessee woman who is accused of trying to abort her fetus at 24 weeks with a coat hanger last year is facing new felony charges, in a case that has raised concerns among some abortion-rights advocates over strict abortion laws as President-elect Donald Trump prepares to take office."
If there is no reproductive freedom, there is no freedom at all.
"The case concerning the woman, Anna Yocca, 32, has wound its way through the courts in Rutherford County for nearly a year, seesawing between multiple charges in three indictments as she has continued to sit in a central Tennessee jail."
Kangaroo justice in Nazi America.
"On Monday, Yocca was arraigned on fresh charges: aggravated assault, an attempt to procure a miscarriage and an attempted criminal abortion. She entered a plea of not guilty, The Daily News journal reported."
Fascism, nazism, national socialism defined as the pernicious blend of government, business, and religion. Justified by determined perversion and bastardization of the latter. The above quotes are originally from Christine Hauser of The New York Times.
More of the same. The Statesman reports:
"Medical facilities in Texas will be required to cremate or bury aborted and miscarried fetuses starting Dec.19."
Hopefully, the courts will intervene. Republican nazis are doing all they can to deny and/or make it as difficult, expensive as possible to obtain an abortion. Deliberately abrogating a constitutional right to force their outrageously perverse ideological and religious views on all.
At the very same time, the very same GOP nazis are imposing Medicaid cuts, -- for disabled children. The Statesman reports:
"Millions of dollars of cuts to Medicaid therapy services will take effect Dec.15. The move comes after the Texas Supreme Court decided in September that it would not hear a lawsuit filed to block the cuts. The court didn't explain its decision at the time."
Conveniently gutless, no? Not only are these GOP nazis denying women easy access to abortion, should they bring a disabled kid to term, guess what? They're denying them funds for therapy. -- The 'Christian' thing to do, no doubt?
"Last year the Legislature approved $350 million in Medicaid cuts spread over two years--$150 million in state money and $200 million in matching federal funds--to therapy providers, primarily those serving children."
-- No question, you'll know them by their colors. ... Hopelessly, achingly self-serving, supposedly 'Christian,' national socialist fascist pieces of profoundly greedy shit. Nazi justice in a fascist police-state, little more than a would-be 'Christian' theocracy. Direct violation of The Establishment Clause First Amendment, that is, church-state separation, also known as freedom from religion.
Insanity perpetrated by the State of Texas continues unabated. CBS News reports:
"A Texas state agency has released a new edition of a booklet for women considering an abortion that suggests there may be a link between terminating pregnancies and increased risks of breast cancer and depression. The Texas Department of State Health Services issued the new edition of “A Woman’s Right to Know” on Monday."
Have a problem with this? You should. It's discredited bullshit. Simply, untrue. Phony propaganda perpetrated by the nazis in office.
"Unchanged in the latest version is language saying giving birth, rather than having an abortion, makes women “less likely to develop breast cancer in the future.” “Research indicates that having an abortion will not provide you this increased protection against breast cancer,” it reads. But the American Cancer Society refutes that on its website, saying “scientific research studies have not found a cause-and-effect relationship between abortion and breast cancer.”
"The booklet also says women can become depressed or have thoughts of suicide after an abortion."
Still more unadulterated bullshit with no basis in reality:
"It also says that “we know babies develop the ability to feel pain while in the womb,” and, in a section that’s new this year, adds the Republican-controlled Texas Legislature in 2013 banned abortion after 20 weeks due to “consideration of the potential for fetal pain.” Peer-reviewed medical studies say fetal pain is likely not felt until closer to 30 weeks into pregnancy."
Republican nazis have an agenda. Remain desperate to force their outrageously perverse ideological and religious views on all.
Rabid nazis in the Republican Party are doing all they can to eviscerate reproductive freedom. Can't seem to understand if there is no reproductive freedom, there is no freedom at all. That reproductive freedom is far more than a man keeping it in his pants. A woman keeping her panties up and legs crossed. CNN reports:
"Ohio lawmakers have passed a controversial "Heartbeat Bill" that would ban abortions in that state from the moment the heartbeat of a fetus can be detected -- which usually occurs about six weeks into a pregnancy. What happens next for the bill, which would prohibit such abortions even in cases of rape or incest, depends on Republican Gov. John Kasich."
Hear the rumble? An unwanted dreaded second American revolution catastrophically looming on the horizon.
The Nazi State of Texas and the Governor, as well as national socialists in the GOP including Trump and his henchmen, remain staunchly anti-choice. So much so, nazis here in Texas intend to make it as difficult and expensive as possible to abort. CNN reports:
"The Governor says they are "giving voice to the unborn." Critics say they are a naked attempt to shame and financially burden Texas women seeking abortions. They are controversial new rules in Texas which will require abortion clinics to bury or cremate fetal remains."
The Governor is a goddamned liar. He is desperately trying to force his outrageously perverse religious and ideological views on all. More on the above shortly. -- This may still be challenged in court before it goes into effect.
"After a few months of fairly evenly-split debate consisting of tens of thousands of comments (31 groups were in favor of the rules, while 26 opposed them), the Texas Department of State Health Services rules are slated to take effect later this month."
Planned Parenthood asked supporters to share in what amounts to text format why they support this organization. The response from this publication should come as no surprise to readers. Planned Parenthood matters to me because...If there is no reproductive freedom, there is no freedom at all.
Four states are considering a radical change in how abortion medication is distributed. CNN reports:
"At a time when access to abortion is being restricted on many fronts, advocates say being able to terminate a pregnancy through telemedicine and mail-order drugs would provide a welcome new option for women."
Indeed. About time. Especially, with Republicans waging war on a woman's right to do as she pleases with her uterus.
"Opponents of abortion find the concept dangerous and deeply disturbing."
It's none of their goddamned business. "Dangerous" for whom? Certainly, not for women desperately seeking an abortion. These religious nazis are caustically reminded it's not their uterus. Don't wish to abort? Don't. Don't, however, force your outrageously perverse religious views on others.
Sending this medication by mail saves women an enormous amount of money. Not only that, they avoid rabid religious nazis desperate to force their perverse religious and ideological views on women seeking an abortion at a clinic.
"The idea builds on a trend that is helping women obtain birth control more easily. A growing number of smartphone apps and websites now make it possible to get prescription contraceptives without visiting a doctor's office first. The pills Marie and the other women received through the study are not allowed for sale in pharmacies and are usually available only at hospitals and abortion clinics."
This needs to change. Especially, as the rabid Nazi Right makes it increasingly difficult for a woman to do as she pleases with her uterus.
"The study Marie participated in is being conducted in four states -- Hawaii, New York, Oregon and Washington. It is being funded and organized by Gynuity Health Projects, a nonprofit research group focused on reproductive health services that seeks to improve women's access to medical abortions. The FDA has allowed the experiment. Women learn about it when contacting the abortion clinics in the study and other health providers who are aware of the trial and the website telabortion.org."
This is certainly a step in the right direction.
"Access to abortion has been declining steadily in the United States as dozens of clinics have been forced to close under new state restrictions. In Texas, the number of clinics fell to 18 in 2015 from 41 in 2012. Five states have just one clinic that offers abortions."
The last quote is precisely why this study is so extremely important to women. Alternative? A return to back alley butchers? The coathanger? An unwanted dreaded second American revolution already catastrophically looming on the horizon? Forget? If there is no reproductive freedom, there is no freedom at all.
Republican nazis can't seem to understand reproductive freedom is far, far, far more than a man keeping it in his pants, a woman keeping her panties up and legs crossed.
These drugs need to be made immediately available in pharmacies. The only reason they aren't? Wake up. Republican national socialists desperate to force their outrageously perverse religious and ideological views on all by statute.
Evisceration of Roe v. Wade could trigger the unthinkable. An unwanted dreaded second American revolution already catastrophically looming on the horizon. Think not? Think again. If there is no reproductive freedom, there is no freedom at all. NPR reports:
"Trump's election could have a profound impact on access to abortion. He has said he'll nominate Supreme Court justices who would be likely to overturn Roe v. Wade, the 1973 ruling that legalized the procedure. And he's set to take office with one opening on the court, since Republican senators have refused to consider President Obama's nominee to fill the vacancy created after Justice Antonin Scalia died earlier this year."
His determined further nazification of the Supreme Court will be resisted. Tooth and nail. Protest? The fascist hasn't seen anything near what protest will be as our former great country continues its nazification under the Trump Regime, imposition of The Fourth Reich.
"In a statement, Nancy Northup, president of the advocacy group Center for Reproductive Rights, said, "Our country now stands perilously close to a return to the dark days when women were forced to put their own lives at risk to get safe and legal abortion care."
Will not stand, not be tolerated.
Sen. Ted "Screws Loose" Cruz remains on the warpath against Planned Parenthood. The fascist son of a bitch grows shriller. Knows he's lost the argument. Doesn't stop the clueless bastard from trying, however. Get this. It's from the latest Cruz Newsletter:
"Sen. Cruz and Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick recently penned an op-ed for the Houston Chronicle highlighting Texas’ continued leadership in the fight for life and calling on Congress to end taxpayer funding of Planned Parenthood. Sen. Cruz and Lt. Gov. Patrick make the case that Congress should protect the lives of unborn children and the well-being of their mothers."
This is abject bullshit and beside the point. No taxpayer dollars are spent on abortion. Should be, but are not. It's against the law. The Senator and his equally ignorant henchmen remain ignorant of this fact, -- or, are deliberately lying. The Senator seems to miss the point protecting the lives of mothers of unwanted unborn children includes allowing these women to decide for themselves whether or not to continue a pregnancy.
Not national socialists such as himself and his ilk who insist on dictating what women can and cannot do with their uterus. Not his. Not his hopelessly fascist compadres who think as perversely as he does. Remain so goddamned intent on forcing their perverse religious and ideological views on others through the force of law. In direct violation of the First and Fourth Amendments.
“Planned Parenthood’s callous disregard for human life stands as a stark reminder that one of our highest ideals - that all people are endowed by God with the unalienable rights of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness - remains unfulfilled,” Sen. Cruz and Lt. Gov. Patrick wrote. “Planned Parenthood believes that unborn babies who are unwanted are undeserving of life. Fortunately, most Texans disagree. The people of Texas have embraced the truth that is written on every human heart - that children are a God-given blessing who not only bring joy and fulfillment but, perhaps most important, who teach us to love unconditionally.”
This piece of national socialist shit has no regard for all those innocents out there who have been murdered by the criminal jackbooted bastards in blue. To say nothing all those who have been falsely convicted and await execution in the increasingly Nazi State of Texas. To say nothing of those who were innocent and already executed in the increasingly Nazi State of Texas.
To say nothing of how sadly perverse, achingly lacking, his last statement truly is. Especially, in light of the fact he clearly couldn't care less the carnage reeked by the jackbooted bastards in blue has destroyed nearly all faith and trust in law enforcement. He and those like him are too damned aggressively stupid, hopelessly ignorant to fully understand, truly appreciate the damage done by the Nazi Right to all civil and constitutional rights and liberties in our formerly great country.
Women are apparently second class citizens in Maine and elsewhere throughout our formerly great country. At least, when it comes to abortion. Think women aren't discriminated against vis a vis Obamacare? Wake up. They are. Think not? NPR reports:
"Abortion is the only service under the Affordable Care Act that is explicitly allowed to be banned, says senior policy analyst Laurie Sobel of the Kaiser Family Foundation. Twenty-five states ban it, she says, and "six of the remaining states that have no ban on abortion coverage did not have any plans that offered coverage in 2016."
This is outrageously unconstitutional. Consequence?
"The largest provider of health coverage on the Affordable Care Act's online marketplace in Maine has dropped coverage of elective abortion services."
Certainly, not 'elective' to a woman who does not wish to be pregnant. Makes no difference to the goddamned corporate management suite and its bought and paid for lackeys in our bought and paid for government.
"Community Health Options, an insurance co-op, decided to eliminate the coverage as it tries to dig itself out of a $31 million financial hole that it accumulated in 2015. (It's one of six co-ops remaining of the 23 initially created by the Affordable Care Act.)"
Another indication Obamacare is headed for extinction.
"This decision was really driven by economic considerations," says CEO Kevin Lewis, "as well as the construction of the Affordable Care Act and how it regards essential health benefits in the individual marketplace."
The hell it was. More excuse making. Unadulterated bullshit. Proof positive women remain second class citizens as The Fourth Reich continues to be implemented.
"Elective abortions aren't considered an essential health benefit under the federal health care law. Neither is adult vision care, which Community Health Options also dropped. Both services were included in all of the 56,291 policies the co-op sold on the individual market in 2015."
Nothing quite like f--king policyholders to line corporate coffers. Ensure the corporate management suite receives millions to line the pockets of the top 1% of the food chain.
"While Community Health Options describes the change in abortion coverage as one piece of an overall strategy to contain costs, abortion services providers in Maine are calling it a major decision that erects barriers to women's health care."
Which is exactly what Republican fascists desperately want across our formerly great country. To line their pockets. Force their outrageously perverse ideological and religious views on all.
"It further stigmatizes a normal procedure that we're trying to help people understand is part of the comprehensive experience of women's health care," says Andrea Irwin, executive director of the Mabel Wadsworth Health Center in Bangor, one of three main providers of abortion services in the state."
Wouldn't want to confuse the aggressively stupid, hopelessly greedy, perversely f--ked up national socialists in the Republican Party with the truth, would we?
"Though Community Health Options says it provides coverage for birth control above and beyond the requirements of the Affordable Care Act, Irwin says sometimes birth control doesn't work and women need another option. Most people buying insurance in the online marketplace "are by definition working people with low to moderate income who need help buying health coverage," she says."
Then again, Obama, his Regime, and the Democratic Party knew all this was going to be an issue. Failed to insist wording of the law be carefully written to avoid this bullshit. This is just one more indication Obamacare is sooner or later doomed to failure. Is not sustainable.
"A spokeswoman for Planned Parenthood of Northern New England, Nicole Clegg, says she appreciates the financial issues Community Health Options is facing but is skeptical that cutting coverage of abortion services will do much to help buoy the co-op. The cost for a first trimester abortion is about $550, she says. Community Health Options says 33 women in Maine used their elective abortion coverage in 2015."
The fact only 33 women used their elective abortion coverage last year is proof positive abortion coverage was not removed for financial reasons. Could not have been. Had to be goddamned national socialists, fascists determined to force their perverse ideological and religious views on the 'lil lady.' Goddamned nazis. Psychotic pieces of sick shit.
"Abortion is the only service under the Affordable Care Act that is explicitly allowed to be banned, says senior policy analyst Laurie Sobel of the Kaiser Family Foundation. Twenty-five states ban it, she says, and "six of the remaining states that have no ban on abortion coverage did not have any plans that offered coverage in 2016."
Goddamned unconstitutional. Sick religion at work. A direct violation of the First Amendment Establishment Clause, that is church-state separation, forced on the rest of us by the national socialist, fascist, not-so-'Christian' Right. Championed by the Republican Party. The not-so-'Christian' GOP.
If there is no reproductive freedom, there is no freedom at all. In the not-so-great nazi State of Indiana, Purvi Partel, 35, was imprisoned for aborting her fetus, that is, unborn child. Her uterus. Her body. Not, however, according to the nazis who run and own Indiana. The Statesman recently reported:
"An Indiana woman whose feticide conviction for a self-induced abortion was overturned in July walked out of prison Thursday, a day after a judge resentenced her to less time than she had already served and ordered her immediate release."
Sounds like Nazi Texas, doesn't it? Where the fascist bastards who run and own the goddamned state falsely and haughtily believe they own a woman's uterus. Can dictate what she can and cannot do with her uterus.
"Patel was convicted in 2015 of killing her premature infant by taking abortion-inducing drugs and was sentenced to 20 years in prison. She appealed her feticide and child neglect convictions and the Indiana Court of Appeals vacated both convictions in July, finding the state's feticide law wasn't meant to be used to prosecute women for their own abortions."
Think the goddamned court made it right? Think again. They continued the f--king. Hear the rumble?
"The appeals court ruled instead that Patel should be resentenced on a lower-level charge that carries a maximum three-year sentence."
This is nazi justice in Nazi America. A goddamned fascist police-state. The Fourth Reich. Where the national socialist GOP, falsely claiming to be Christians, has haughtily forced its perverse ideological and religious views on the masses through egregiously unconstitutional statutes rubber stamped by their equally nazi shills ensconced on the bench.
"The state's attorney general decided not to appeal the ruling, and on Wednesday, a St. Joseph County judge resentenced Patel to 18 months."
Nazi justice in Nazi America. Hear the rumble? Ladies, you're no longer free. The goddamned government owns you and your uterus. You are beholden to these pieces of shit. National socialist shit. The Republican Party.
"Patel was arrested in July 2013 after she sought treatment at a hospital for profuse bleeding."
What does this tell you, ladies? Wake up. There is no medical privacy. The healthcare system is beholden to the goddamned fascists in law enforcement. This is not equivalent to someone presenting with a gun shot or stab wound. Even under those circumstances the victim could have refused to talk to police. This is a woman who desperately tried to induce an abortion on her body. Forget? Her body.
The goddamned assholes in the Republican Party have turned it into a crime. Don't forget this when it is time to vote, ladies. -- Not that you have any viable alternative in either "Hump The Rump" Trump or "Pilloried Hillary." You can vote, however, for other Democrats and Independents running for office to send the goddamned Republicans a clear message.
The nazi bastards in Indiana claimed the fetus had just reached the moment of viability. So what? It's still the woman's uterus right up to birth. If she does not wish to give birth, who the hell is this goddamned government to dictate otherwise? It's none of their business. Certainly, not in a supposedly free country.
Why has the national socialist government of Texas awarded an anti-abortion rights lobbyist organization named the Heidi Group a state grant of $1.6 million? Why? Did so while kicking Planned Parenthood out of the state women's health program back in 2011. Readers should understand Planned Parenthood never received a dime for any abortions provided. Not a dime. Forget?
It is not legal for taxpayer money to be used for abortions. This is no more than a direct violation of the First Amendment Establishment Clause, that is, freedom from religion. The goddamned national socialists who run and own Texas government, that is the Republican Party, have no problems granting $1.6 million to an anti-abortion group, however. This is egregiously unconstitutional bullshit.
These pieces of national socialist human excrement in the GOP are not only legislating their perverse religious and ideological views from the bench, they're doing it through outrageously unconstitutional statutes rubber stamped by national socialist courts. They continue to practice medicine without a license. Force unwilling doctors to effectively sexually assault women receiving an abortion by requiring a medically unnecessary highly invasive trans vaginal ultrasound.
Then, they line the pockets of an anti-abortion group to the tune of $1.6 million in funds to perniciously advise against abortion and deny women the right to do with their uterus as they damn well please. If there is no reproductive freedom, there is no freedom at all. These nazi pieces of Right Wing shit don't seem to understand reproductive freedom is far more than a woman keeping her panties up and legs crossed. Or, a man keeping it in his pants.
Instead, they must somehow perversely believe the Creator has died and appointed them God. They'll dictate to the 'little woman' what they think best. What their perverse religious beliefs dictate. Horse shit. It's an egregious violation of the First Amendment Establishment Clause. Freedom from religion. These perverse trolls hypocritically and insanely believe abortion is murder.
... While conveniently ignoring innocent prisoners executed by the State, military personnel needlessly killed in battle to line the coffers of the corporate management suite. To say nothing of all the innocent murdered by the jackbooted bastards in blue. Regarding all this, these pieces of GOP shit remain gutlessly silent. It's outrageously unconstitutional and abject cowardice. ... Not that the goddamned Democrats are any better. Or, worse? Doing anything effective to combat the national socialist fascists in the Republican Party.
The fascist Republican bastards who run and own our formerly great state believe in publishing false information to further inflict their perverse religious and ideological views on women seeking an abortion. Get this. The Statesman has reported:
"The new version of a booklet that Texas produces for women considering an abortion is being criticized for suggesting that terminating pregnancies can lead to heightened risks for breast cancer and depression."
Both claims are blatantly false. So is the phony claim abortion can cause future fertility problems. Research says otherwise. Do women a disservice. The fascist bastards know they're lies. Still promulgate all three as truth. Why are the taxpayers looted to provide this booklet? All these restrictions are blatantly unconstitutional. Violate church-state separation as mandated by the First Amendment Establishment Clause. Freedom from religion.
Republicans truly believe women are too damned stupid, ill-informed to decide what they can and cannot do with their uterus. They'll decide for them. Also, are quite willing to practice medicine without a license. Require unwilling doctors to sexually assault those seeking an abortion by requiring an unnecessary highly invasive trans vaginal sonogram.
Ludicrously, doctors are required by law to inform women of the above, that is, phony claims by the Nazi Right that are simply blatantly false. They are allowed, however, to then tell the women they're treating the truth. Imagine that. Day is night, night is day, and shit smells perversely sweet in the world of the Republican fascists who run and own our formerly great state.
The following is from the most recent Rep. Mike Conaway, 11th District Newsletter:
"Preventing Pro-Life Discrimination
"Thursday, the House of Representatives passed the Conscience Protection Act, which protects health care providers who chose to decline any involvement in abortion services. Right now, President Obama and his administration have decided that their beliefs stand above the many Americans who are pro-life and against the loss of innocent children. No health care provider should be forced to perform an abortion, and the government should not be allowed to discriminate against those who have a conscience and moral objection to abortion. It is important that we come together to protect the many men and women who provide tremendous healthcare to those in their communities, and simply wish to continue doing so without the government interfering with their beliefs."
The Congressman doesn't seem to understand providing medical care is not a right, but a privilege. Seems healthcare personnel don't seem to understand this either. If you cannot provide a constitutionally protected medical service in good conscience, get the hell out of the business. You're not qualified. Find something else to do.
Not surprisingly, exceptionally impatient Texas Republican national socialists running our formerly great state are not waiting for the next Legislature to continue harassing those performing abortions as well as women desperately needing them. About a week ago, The Statesman reported officials proposed new rules that would require abortion fetal remains to be either buried or cremated. -- Aren't all medical, surgical, biological waste such as body parts incinerated anyway?
The new rules were posted in the Texas Register on July 1st with no notice, and apparently any need for legislative approval. This was reportedly done at the behest of national socialist Republican Governor Greg Abbott who is thus himself now in the business of effectively legislating, passing, imposing, and executing law as Texas Governor. Sans the Texas Legislature. Remarkable, isn't it?
In follow up, an editorial published 7-12-16 by The Statesman reported this is just the beginning of additional efforts by GOP nazis to harass women seeking an abortion and their providers with additional unnecessary punitive restrictions to make an abortion as difficult as possible to obtain. -- A goddamned constitutional right these nazi bastards are deliberately abrogating.
Ladies, remember this when you go to the polls. Republicans remain desperate to force their perverse ideological and religious views on all by statute. If you value reproductive freedom, you need to boot the nazi bastards from office. If you support both the right to an abortion and the Second Amendment as many of us do, you're out of luck.
There's no one viable outside both major parties to vote for. Sad, isn't it? Nazi Texas. Nazi America. The Fourth Reich. Where Republican nazis impose their outrageously perverse ideological and religious views on all by statute. Goddamned unconstitutional. Aryan arrogant national socialists who have created and imposed a fascist police-state.
To line their pockets, get their cookies off abusing power, and most importantly? To please their corporate masters who have bought and paid for their corporate-owned GOP fascist shill bastards. A raucous, boot clicking, goose stepping, treacherous, treasonous, traitorous Sieg Heil!?
Must not be forgotten Republican national socialists in the Legislature as well as in the Governor's Office routinely practice medicine without a license. Have forced unwilling doctors to effectively sexually assault women seeking an abortion by requiring by statute a highly invasive, medically unnecessary trans vaginal ultrasound before an abortion. Again, ladies, remember these nazis when considering whom to vote for at the polls. They continue to haughtily deny your constitutional right to do with your uterus as you damn well please.
Looks like there may be yet another 'religious liberties' case that will ultimately find its way to the Supreme Court. The Washington Times reports:
"By funding Catholic bishops who won’t perform abortions in their service to immigrant minors, the American Civil Liberties Union says the federal government is breaking the law.
"The group filed a lawsuit Friday against the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, claiming the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops must perform abortions in order to be eligible for federal funding to care for minors caught crossing the border.
“When a teen has endured unthinkable tragedy — violence, rape, a terrifying journey to an unfamiliar place — and she arrives here afraid and alone, the last thing we should do is deny her the care she needs,” ACLU senior staff attorney Brigitte Amiri said in a press release. “Our taxpayer dollars should not be used to authorize organizations to violate the law and impose their religious beliefs on these young women and deny them care they desperately need.”
Here, here. 'Religious liberties,' my ass. It's church-state separation as prescribed by the First Amendment Establishment Clause, that is, freedom from religion that's truly at stake here. Religious fascists don't seem to understand being a charitable group is not a right, but a privilege. If the Church and other religious groups on the Right can't or won't provide constitutional medical services, they need to get the hell out of the business.
The number of back alley abortions, botched abortions, improperly administered drug induced abortions will certainly continue to rise in Nazi Texas. -- A goddamned fascist police-state where Republican national socialist legislators and a nazi Governor continue to practice medicine without a license. Force their perverse religious and ideological views on all by statute. Indeed, The Fourth Reich.
NPR reports training of medical personnel to provide abortion care has been limited by these Republican national socialists:
"Abortion is one of the more common procedures performed in the U.S., more common even than appendectomy. But as clinics in Texas close, finding a place in the state where medical residents training to be OB-GYNs can learn to do abortions is getting harder.
"There are places in Texas where there are OB-GYN residents who can't get anywhere to be trained," said a senior doctor at one Texas clinic who is also a medical school professor. The physician asked not to be named to avoid backlash from anti-abortion groups and politicians."
This is goddamned pitiful. Un-American. National socialist. Hopelessly, fascist and unconstitutional. Nazis in the Republican Party are abrogating their oaths of office and forcing their perverse ideological and religious views on others by statute. Women are being forced to pay the price for the nazism imposed by these Republicans. Are not receiving the care they desperately need. Remember this ladies, -- when it comes time to vote.
While Obamacare needs to be repealed, Republican national socialists offer no viable alternative. In a recently released 'alternative,' these shameless nazis only offer more of the same old tired GOP bullshit. That is, further lining of the pockets of providers at the expense of consumers. The American Way. F--k the bottom 99% to line the pockets of the top 1%. ... Right, TL? Ben? Tim?
Subsequent to writing the above, the United States Supreme Court dealt Texas Republican national socialists a severe blow. Struck down a 2013 nazi law restricting a woman's right to an abortion, forcing closure of a number of clinics. Falsely claiming they were doing it to protect the health of women. The medical community rightfully protested this claim is bullshit. Indeed, it is.
-- Nothing more than a blatant, naked attempt to end the right to abortion. Despite the fact abortion is indeed a constitutional right, Roe v. Wade 1973. In a 5-3 decision, Justice Breyer wrote:
"We agree with the District Court that the surgical center requirement, like the admitting-privileges requirement, provides few, if any, health benefits for women, poses a substantial obstacle to women seeking abortions, and constitutes an 'undue burden' on their constitutional right to do so."
Nazis on the Right, led by Republican national socialists, have been falsely, disingenuously lying for years abortion is dangerous and causes mental problems in women who have one. Unadulterated bullshit. No more than an appalling effort to dictate to a woman what she can and cannot do with her uterus. Force their perverse, phony religious and ideological views on all by statute. In direct violation of church-state separation guarantied by the First Amendment Establishment Clause, that is, freedom from religion.
The fascist Republican nazi bastards in Austin, including our national socialist Governor and his equally nazi Republican compadres in the Legislature, intend to carefully scrutinize the ruling line by line and introduce new legislation. Hard to believe it would stand up considering Breyer's definitive ruling partially quoted above. The rest of the decision is just as definitive. Won't stop the nazi bastards from desperately trying, however.
Remember the above, ladies, when it comes time to vote. These GOP national socialists, that is, nazis, fascists intend to continue to do all they can to dictate what you can and cannot do with your uterus. Continue to shamelessly abrogate all civil and constitutional rights and liberties. Force their outrageously perverse ideological and religious views on all by statute.
In direct violation of their falsely sworn oaths to protect and defend the United States Constitution. Where? Wake up. Where else? Nazi Texas. Nazi America. The Fourth Reich.
Must also not be forgotten this ruling does not remove all egregious restrictions on abortion imposed by Republican national socialists who insist on practicing medicine without a license. To unconstitutionally impose their exceptionally perverse religious and ideological views on all by statute. Worse? Far worse?
GOP nazis, by law, force unwilling doctors to sexually assault unwilling women seeking an abortion. How? Wake up. By requiring an unnecessary highly invasive trans vaginal ultrasound before an abortion procedure. To make it as difficult and intolerable as possible for women seeking an abortion to exercise their constitutional right to have one. No more complicated than that.
These fascist bastards, indeed, impose their religious views on all by statute. Church-state separation as prescribed by the First Amendment Establishment Clause, that is, freedom from religion is callously ignored by these nazi pieces of crap. Again, ladies, remember that when it comes time to vote. Republicans truly believe you're too damned stupid to decide for yourselves what to do or not do with your uterus.
Women are also forced by statute to endure a waiting period before an abortion. Again, Republican national socialists believe women are too stupid to decide for themselves. Make their own decisions. The haughty fascists do as much as they can to make that decision for you. ... Right, Governor? Lt. Governor?
Women are also forced by law to bring an unwanted fetus to term after 20 weeks of gestation. Again, these nazi bastards are forcing their outrageously perverse religious views on all by statute. No more complicated than that. These sons of bitches truly believe they own your uterus, ladies. You, don't. Fascist government does. Haughty Republican misogynist nazi bastards.
Many, if not most, of these closed abortion clinics will likely not re-open. All due to an outrageously unconstitutional law knowingly, intentionally imposed by Republican fascists. Fascists, who are protected by sovereign immunity statutes that prevent them from suffering any consequences. The only way to stick it to them is not return the bastards to office. Snow ball's chance, -- as is impeaching, convicting, and removing the goddamned nazis from office.
Sadly, they've egregiously f--ked us all. Yet, will pay no consequences. Protected. If you truly believe in liberty, choice, remember these GOP nazi bastards when you vote. Kick the fascist sons of bitches out of office at the polls. Otherwise, you deserve the f--king they've imposed. Closed clinics will likely not re-open since staff has moved on. Re-opening would also force them to deal with all the bullshit regulation they went through when first licensed. Re-equip and find new housing for the clinics. All, a nearly insurmountable obstacle to re-opening. As intended by Republican nazis.
Sadly, if you believe in the right to an abortion and the Second Amendment, you have no one to vote for President. No one. You're out of luck. -- Other than third party. Snow ball's chance. Precisely, one reason both major political parties have egregiously failed the public they clearly don't serve. Only themselves and their extremist ideologies.
What ever happened to the Center? Vanished. Both extremes quite capable and more than willing to impose their perverse ideologies by statute. On the unwilling. What term best describes this perverse combination of a dual f--king imposed by both extremes? Wake up. The nazi nanny-state. Indeed, a pernicious, psychotic hybrid. The achingly evil blend of the highly prevalent Extreme Right and what's left of the Extreme Left. Aren't we lucky? Truly blessed?
"More and more young women from Texas are walking across the international bridge for risky, do-it-yourself medical abortions with misoprostol that lack the second drug, mifepristone, and also lack the guidance and supervision by a doctor that the women would get in the U.S.."
You think? This is a direct result of national socialists in the Texas Legislature and Governor's Office desperately trying to impose their outrageously perverse ideological and religious views on women seeking an abortion. In direct violation of church-state separation mandated by the First Amendment Establishment Clause.
These nazi bastards have done all they could to close abortion clinics by imposing standards the medical profession declares unnecessary. They lied to constituents by falsely claiming they were imposing these restrictions leading to clinic closing for the sake of women's health. That's patently false. Abject bullshit. A phony crock. The direct opposite is, and has been, the case.
Now, women in Texas are not only not getting sufficient access to abortion, but to routine gynecological services as well. Due to the closing of Planned Parenthood clinics. Ladies, never forget Republican national socialists, that is, these goddamned GOP nazis, fascists are directly responsible for this fiasco.
These bastards in government insist on practicing medicine without a license to impose their perverse ideological and religious views on others by unconstitutional statute. Remember that when you go to the polls. Hold these fascist national socialist nazi bastards responsible. The Republican Party.
Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin, normally quite 'pro-life,' vetoed a bill, 5-20-15, that would have made it a felony to perform an abortion. Never would have held up in court. Roe v. Wade is settled law. Would take a reversal by the U.S. Supreme Court. Should that happen, an unwanted dreaded second American revolution already catastrophically looming on the horizon could sadly become reality.
National socialists on the Right, that is nazis, can't seem to understand if there is no reproductive freedom, there is no freedom at all. Clearly, fascists on the Right also remain clueless that reproductive freedom is far more than a man keeping it in his pants, and a woman keeping her panties up and legs crossed.
No end to the nazism emanating from the U.S. House. ... As well as additional outrageously egregious bills further dictating to women what they can and cannot do with their uterus. H.R. 4924 is the Prenatal Nondiscrimination Act (PRENDA). This goddamned national socialist bill is racist as well as anti-choice. Guess who recently held a hearing on this abomination? The all male House Judiciary Subcommittee on the Constitution and Civil Justice.
These fascist bastards wouldn't know the United States Constitution and/or civil justice if it figuratively bit them hard on the ass. They're too damned aggressively stupid, hopelessly ignorant. They are, however, quite proficient at imposing their exceptionally perverse religious and ideological views on all through the force of law. In direct violation of the First, Fourth, and Fourteenth Amendments at the very least.
This bill deliberately imposes further restrictions on a woman's constitutional right to an abortion. Ostensibly, this bill bans sex selective and race-based abortions. What it is really intended to do is force physicians to racially profile. Question a woman's motivation and reasons for seeking an abortion. This is none of the goddamned doctor's business or that of our outrageously intrusive government.
It's a blatant naked attempt by the Nazi Right in our formerly great country to prevent women from exercising their constitutional right to abort. It's none of their goddamned business what her reasons are for seeking medical care. None at all. They have no right to impose their outrageously perverse and convoluted religious and ideological views on others through the force of law. That's called fascism.
These racist nazi bastards consider minority women too damned stupid to decide for themselves whether or not to have an abortion. It's yet another attack on women by misogynists desperate to dictate to the 'little lady.' Doctors and nurses would be expected to inform authorities if they believe an abortion is being sought for gender and/or racial reasons. This is goddamned bullshit. Indeed, coming from a goddamned fascist police-state. The Fourth Reich. Nazi America. The GOP has become no more than a national socialist, nazi, fascist organization. Right, Sheriff? TL?
Indiana Gov. Mike Pence and his office are getting an earful from women appalled at a new abortion bill the nazi governor signed into law. This outrageous law was covered in the next to last edition of this publication, v.455. The Washington Post reports women have been calling his office en masse:
To one suburban mother in Indiana, the burial provision crossed the line into absurdity. She created a Facebook page called Periods for Pence 10 days ago.
“Any period could potentially be a miscarriage without knowledge,” she wrote. “I would hate for any of my fellow Hoosier women to be at risk of penalty if they do not ‘properly dispose’ of this or report it. Perhaps we should contact Governor Pence’s office to report our periods. We wouldn’t want him thinking that thousands of Hoosier women are trying to hide anything, would we?”
In a generally conservative and antiabortion state, the Facebook page has picked up more than 30,000 likes and has provoked a heavy influx of calls to the governor’s office. The creator of the page says this law crossed a line that bothered even Christian and Republican women.
One woman subsequently and consequently called the Governor's office and reported: “Hello, everything is flowing nicely this month, little heavier than normal.”
Another said: “My vagina and I had an amazing weekend.”
Yet another: “I just wanted to inform the governor that things seem to be drying up today.”
Right on, ladies. Stick it to this goddamned clueless nazi bastard and his perversely ill shills. Republican national socialists, that is, nazis are out of control. They have no right to dictate to a woman what she can and cannot do with her uterus. Or force their outrageously perversely convoluted religious and ideological views on others in violation of the First Amendment Establishment Clause. Or practice medicine without a license. These nazis, goddamned fascists, remain an exigent threat to all civil and constitutional rights and liberties. ... Right, TL?
Trump has a severe problem with instability. On 3-30-16, the national socialist fascist bastard stated abortion should be banned and women who obtain one punished. When pointedly challenged, retracted the statement. The right to an abortion is indeed settled law. Been so courtesy of Roe v. Wade since January 1973. Take a Supreme Court reversal to change this.
The bastards on the Right are already unconstitutionally accomplishing the very same by needlessly making it extremely difficult to get an abortion. Which will shortly be challenged in an 8 member Supreme Court. Consequently, nothing will change any time in the near future. If the right to abort, however, is successfully overturned in the future by a nazi Supreme Court, it is highly likely the unwanted dreaded second American revolution already catastrophically looming on the horizon would sadly become reality. Conveniently, gutlessly forget? If there is no reproductive freedom, there is no freedom at all.
