    Gosh, the dark humor abides. The news is so gloomy and it’s the Rethuglicans again. How can such an idiot minority do so much damage?

    Could COVID Shots in Secret Lure Holdouts? Ozarks Healthcare tries a different tactic to reach the unvaccinated

    …the health system recently issued an impassioned plea for people to get vaccinated, even if it means doing so in secret.
    ….
    Notably, the health system added: “If you are afraid of walking into a public area where you might be seen getting your vaccine, we will work to accommodate even more of a private setting for you to receive your vaccine.”

    With misinformation rampant and vaccination status largely divided by political lines, the concept of making a public appeal to offer the COVID vaccine in private seems to be a unique approach.

    “Choosing to get vaccinated has been put in a strange light,” Ozarks Healthcare wrote. “For some, getting a vaccine may mean losing friendships. But it is a choice that can impact so many lives other than your own.”

      An interesting and intelligent approach! I didn’t think of that. The concept that you’d want your vaccine in a plain brown wrapper is so strange. Good for them for coming up with a workaround.

    A federal judge on Tuesday temporarily blocked an Arkansas law banning nearly all abortions, calling it an “imminent threat” to the constitutional rights of women seeking abortions in the state.

    Judge Kristine Baker of the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Arkansas issued a preliminary injunction, preventing the law from being enforced until she can issue a final ruling.
    Baker, responding to the challenge brought by advocates of abortion rights, wrote that bans on abortions before a fetus is considered viable are “categorically unconstitutional.”

    The ban was set to go into effect on July 28 after being signed into law by Gov. Asa Hutchinson (R) in March. The ban, which is one of the strictest antiabortion laws in the country, would prevent any abortions except in situations that would save the life of the mother, and does not include exceptions for rape or incest.
