Texas is going to lose OB/GYNs and nurses.

This "bounty" on abortions goes back 4 years. That means that even should SB8 be used to coerce doctors and clinics/hospitals not to perform abortions now, but any yahoo grifter who wants to collect money will go after those doctors, nurses, midwives, and PAs who even "facilitated" or consoled a woman who later had an abortion procedure or spontaneous abortion in the past.
These medical professionals are not going to stick around to be hit with a civil lawsuit every month just because they got into women's health and were performing legitimate medical procedures for legitimate medical purposes.

Texas's maternal and pre-natal mortality rate is going to skyrocket. Because women's health procedures apparently figures less in the eyes of Texas legislators than common regulated animal health and fertility procedures.

1. Women who have miscarriages will be reported

which will compound the grief of the loss of the baby.

There are layers of cruelty that go so very deep.

2. Ex post facto.

How does this apply, or not apply, in this situation?

5. The bill allows for reporting on possible abortions to 2017

So Texas Right to Lie can sue - in civil court - the hospital, the clinic, the doctor, the nurse or driver for any number of abortion procedures performed after September 1, 2017.

Along with any other private citizen not directly associated with the woman who got the procedure can have a field day suing any number of "rich women's doctors" to get an easy $10k payday before some court finally put a stop to it.

Sort of like suing for moral malpractice as the GOP defines it, specifically targeted to keep a "biblically justified male control over women's fertility".

It all depends on the judge, and since it's civil court, pretty easy to go judge shopping for a quick, favorable judgement.

SB6 is blatantly unconstitutional, but since the majority in SCOTUS chose not to hear the case until later in the next session, there's a good number of cases that could be brought against medical personnel and be adjudicated against them.

3. Wonder what will happen to OB/GYN liability insurance rates?

Will premiums increase due to this law?

4. Is the law retroactive? Can they actually go after people who were involved in abortions

before this became the law?

6. I say keep sending in those anonymous tips. Clog up their system and make them

deal with all these conservatives politicians who are procuring abortions for their mistresses.
