A bit of good news.
The restrictions, nearly defeated in a 13-hour filibuster by Senator Wendy Davis in June, will not go into effect tomorrow. This is a final decision, not an injunction, and will head to the 5th Circuit (a federal court) to be reviewed.
What’s included in the restrictions ruled unconstitutional?
- Requiring providers to obtain admitting privileges from hospitals within 30 miles of their clinic
- Requiring providers to follow outdated FDA instructions for administering a medication abortion
What’s not included?
- A ban on abortion at 20 weeks, with the exception of fetal and maternal indications, will still go into effect. The majority of abortions are performed before this point.
- The requirement that all abortions be performed in ambulatory surgical centers, a qualification only five of 42 clinics in the state meet, will go into effect in 2014 if it is not challenged.
- I can have sex with whoever I want
- Health care covered my birth control
- If a condom breaks I can go buy the morning after pill without showing ID
- It costs me $0 for STI tests
- If I got pregnant I could get an abortion
- I can marry anyone I want, whether they’re a boy or girl
That’s it. everybody go home. Pack your bags, we goin to canada. Even if they have bagged milk, idec rn
i know this isn’t what i’m supposed to take away from this post, but we have bagged milk…?
"The ACA deals with technical issues that have prevented many trans* individuals from obtaining insurance. It prevents insurance companies from turning away trans* health care seekers, dropping current clients from coverage because of their gender identity, and canceling trans* clients’ insurance due to paperwork mistakes, including misgendering a client or using a former name. This is great news, but for many, insurance is unaffordable and competent care is not available due to bias and inexperience."
Apparently an unborn child is only a living human being if the mother wants him/her
sounds like you’re starting to understand the social construction of language. well done. Medically speaking, the fetus is fetus, no matter what. but the pregnant person may conceptualise their own pregnancy in any way they so choose, whether that’s as a baby, an invader, a passenger, a bun, etc. And sure, I guess some people might call their pregnancy their little ‘living human being’…unusual, but possible!
Pregnancy is inconvenient? Don’t kill unborn babies.
Pregnancy increases potential risk factors? Don’t kill unborn babies.
Raped? Don’t kill unborn babies; do seek support.
Will have difficulty supporting a child? Don’t kill unborn babies; consider adoption.
Child may have a difficult life? Don’t kill unborn babies.
Medical emergency? Try to save both lives while removing baby if necessary.
a nice post highlighting the vast and various ways people find to say “i refuse to think critically about abortion or pregnancy”
Thanks a bunch!
