Sunday Reads: This county is no longer safe for women.

It is all too upsetting…

Repost from @nationalwomensliberation

The final decision is out. SCOTUS has overturned Roe against the will of the people. This is a country with a growing maternal mortality and morbidity rate, no paid parental leave or public universal childcare, and no universal healthcare. An unelected, undemocratic government body that has also gutted voting rights and eliminated the right to live freely without gun violence is now going to force people to carry children against their will. The freedom to marry and access to birth control are next.

      I hope they challenge that law in Iowa about driving into peaceful protesters. Seems like that violates the first amendment kind of, right?

      • darthvelma says:

        That man, and others like him to intentionally drive into protesters, should never be able to get insured to drive again ever. And I can’t imagine any halfway sane insurance company that would insure him.

      • dakinikat says:

        There are laws in Iowa and Florida that specifically say if you drive into protestors you can not be arrested or prosecuted. It was put into place during BLM protests.

    • Minkoff Minx says:

      This is good…I mean for an argument against this fucked up shit reversal of Roe.

    It’s already slavery — forced fetus-carrying is slavery of women’s bodies by the state.

    The overturning of Roe v. Wade sets up tensions between competing state laws unseen since slavery

    The Supreme Court decision to strike down Roe v. Wade is expected to trigger new battles between states over abortion access, as women and advocates try to get around newly enacted bans by seeking the procedure out of state and using hard-to-trace medications.
    The fights promise to raise tensions between states in ways not seen since the era of slavery, experts say.

    Multiple states, including Arizona, Arkansas and Texas, have sought to stem the flow of abortion-inducing pills by making their shipment through the mail illegal. Republican lawmakers in Missouri are considering a bill that would prohibit Missouri residents from getting an abortion out of state as well as penalize out-of-state medical professionals. Model legislation recently released by the antiabortion Right to Life organization would make it a felony offense to help a minor obtain an abortion across state lines.
