I wonder if "pro life" women understand that they have doomed themselves to have less health care

Abortion training is needed for certification for the specialty of OB/GYN. No one will want to complete a residency in a state that will result in not being able to get their certification.
About half of new physicians end up working in the state they completed their residency.
They just made sure that they decreased the amount of OB GYNS that will want to work in those areas.

I expect malpractice insurance will skyrocket to account for lawsuits that may arise. I’m reading stories of women being told to go home and return to the ER days later when they are in sepsis to get the “ mother’s life in danger exception”. This is not going to end well. Someone will die from Sepis before they are able to make it back to the ER.
I’m sure many physicians will leave instead of dealing with rising malpractice insurance, threats of arrest, threats of lawsuits by vigilantes and lawsuits from the mother’s family.

Not just OB GYNS. It’s going to have a ripple effect on many areas of medicine. Oncology, Rheumatology, we are already hearing about patients not being able to get Methotrexate.
We were already in a crisis in health care with not having enough providers. You just ensured that less providers will want to come to your state, continue to stay in your state , and probably decrease the amount of med students that choose OB/GYN as a specialty.

Talk about cutting off your nose to spite your face.

OMG, The new THOR movie is So Gay!

I did not look at reviews before I went to see it. I was pleasantly surprised. I figured right wing bigots would lose their shit. It’s rare that I praise a giant corporation. But way to go Disney!

Oh they are freaking out for sure 😆

13 year old arrested at pro choice protest

When the Gestapo comes for you.
Her charge? Yelling my body, my choice into a bullhorn. She violated wannabe king Desantis’ new noise ordinance law.

Just so we are clear, Why BG plead guilty

Keep in mind, that she is charged with
large-scale transportation of drugs

Experts have said any deal to release Griner would almost certainly require an admission of guilt by the American star, regardless of the facts. A source familiar with the strategy said that by pleading guilty, Griner gets that out of the way. And while it could complicate public reaction to her case, one source said the thought was to just get her home however possible and deal with the fallout when she returns.

Ryabkov noted that until Griner's trial is over, "there are no formal or procedural reasons to talk about any further steps.''

So if chump is eventually charged with a crime

How would the jury be protected? I imagine some may not want to serve on that jury out of fear. Is it possible to keep their identities secret?

A mother's warning: If you have white teen sons, listen up

This is an article from 2019. But a more recent article below made me think of it

A mother's warning: If you have white teen sons, listen up ...
By Sara Sidner, CNN

Joanna Schroeder has a warning for parents of teen and tween white boys: If you don't pay attention to their online lives, the white supremacists will.
They've studied the way that our young men interact online, and they have looked at what these boys need," she said. "And they have learned how to fill those needs in order to entice them into propaganda."

That's what she found when she asked her own teenager if they could go through some of his social media together. He was scrolling quickly, really quickly," she said. "It was so fast, and he slowed down, and I saw an image of Hitler and I stopped him, and I said, 'Wait, is that Hitler?'"

It was. A meme depicting Hitler and implying a time traveler would have tipped him off about the future to keep him alive had popped into the boy's Instagram suggestions.

"I know my kids understand Hitler, but as I scrolled through his [social media] I saw more memes that joked about the Holocaust and joked about slavery," Schroeder said. The impact, she said, seemed to be "desensitizing our kids to things we should be sensitive to."


Mom agonizes about how to reach her son, a man with a Buddha tattoo who turned to hate
By Sara Sidner, CNN
Updated 12:59 PM ET, Sun July 3, 2022

Provo, Utah (CNN)The first sign of trouble was brief. Just a couple of comments during the hustle and bustle of regular life.

Karen Amsden was chatting to her son in the driveway while picking up her grandchildren when she mentioned something about a quote by Anne Frank, one of the most famous victims of the Nazis who wrote a haunting diary before she was captured and murdered in the Holocaust.
"He just said something about, 'That's not even real. The Holocaust isn't real,'" Amsden recalled.
She thought her son was joking. Now she says it's clear he was not.

Harriet Hageman tried to throw out Chump's victory

I don’t know why I even ask, but how do they live with themselves?
From a nevertrumper to all this ass kissing. SMDH

Harriet Hageman, a Wyoming Republican, is the former president’s choice to take on his leading G.O.P. critic. But five years ago, she tried to overturn his victory in the party’s primary race. But his choice to replace her, Harriet Hageman, was not always a loyal soldier herself. She was part of the final Republican resistance to his ascent in 2016, backing doomed procedural measures at the party’s national convention aimed at stripping him of the presidential nomination he had clinched two months earlier.

Ms. Hageman worked with fellow supporters of Senator Ted Cruz of Texas in a failed effort to force a vote on the convention floor between Mr. Trump and Mr. Cruz, regardless of the results of the primaries and caucuses held across America. Calling Mr. Trump “the weakest candidate,” Ms. Hageman attributed his rise to Democrats who she claimed had voted in Republican primaries.
For Ms. Hageman, joining forces with Mr. Trump to attack an old ally — the two Wyoming women were once so close that Ms. Hageman served as an adviser to Ms. Cheney’s short-lived 2014 Senate campaign — presents an opportunity to accomplish something she has been unable to do without him: win a statewide race in Wyoming.

A District Attorney on MSNBC just brought up a potential chilling side effect of abortion bans

The segment was with DAs that say they will not prosecute abortion cases. One of them said, how could he prosecute a rapist, a case involving incest, and then turn around and prosecute the victim of that rape? Further traumatizing the victim. He further stated, rape victims may be afraid to come forward if they think they may go to jail.

Schools must notify parents if a trans student is in their child's physical education class

Florida continues the race to be #1 depravity.

On Tuesday night, the Leon County School Board unanimously approved its “LGBTQ Inclusive School Guide,” which includes a provision to alert parents if a student who is “open about their gender identity” is in their child’s physical education class or with them on an overnight school trip.
“Upon notification or determination of a student who is open about their gender identity, parents of the affected students will be notified of reasonable accommodation options available,” the guidelines read. “Parents or students who have concerns about rooming assignments for their student’s upcoming overnight event based on religious or privacy concerns may request an accommodation.”
