Yeah, so? If you can't afford travel, quiet doctors and lawyers to fight for your rights equal to the richest amongst us, what are not we all?

So the intent is to treat it more like we handle racism in this country. Racism is essentially institutionalized, it turns up in every corner of society in every way except putting up signs that say "no colored people allowed" like they had in the old days.

So now for abortion they'll put so many restrictions on it but "oh no we're not banning abortion but you just have to jump through these 57 hoops and oh, and don't leave the state for one or that makes you a criminal. Not kidding anybody here, they're just going to ban it by bits and pieces

"In 1973, there was little support for women who wanted a full family life and a successful career," she wrote. "Maternity leave was rare. Paternity leave was unheard of. The gold standard for professional success was a 9-to-5 with a corner office. The flexibility of the gig economy was a fairy tale."

What the f*ck does this have to do with a woman needing to make a personal or medical decision regarding her uterus?

Yeah, that's the thing: An abortion ban in Mississippi will almost exclusively affect poor people. The daughter of the guy who owns the local Chevy dealership can "go visit her aunt in California" for a week. The single mother working multiple fast-food shifts and the homeless girl that got thrown out by her parents for being bisexual are probably SOL.

I tried reading that and it made no farking sense to me.

We should give the power to regulate abortion back to the states because we have maternity and paternity leave now?

Their reasoning is: women have so many opportunities, now, any economic hardship justification of an abortion is moot.

Also -- they're full of retrograde s***

Mississippi asking #SCOTUS to overrule Roe is, obviously, a huge deal. But don't sleep on how it also moves the Overton window.

The Court could uphold MS's incredibly restrictive abortion law without *formally* overruling Roe, and some will (wrongly) portray that as "moderate."

Ultra-right radio is now saying it was a mistake to allow women to read. That's not ISIS at ALL! Right wing women had better really start paying attention and get their men in line, before the men decide to go full Handmaid's Tale on their freedoms.

So at what point does Mississippi make it illegal to leave the state for women born there? Sure some fundies will stay, and some people can't afford to move, but if these state's rights chucklefarks get their way on abortion reverting to states, it would at least be amusing to see women leave red states in droves, turning them into even bigger sausage fests of closeted, self-hating homosexuals, and incels.

Not so much that as they understand that in a pinch they (and their daughters) will still have those rights.   You'll see a lot of out of state trips to visit relatives in blue states, but that's at best a minor inconvenience.

Those people, OTOH, will have to live with the consequences of their choices, the little sluts.

Let me guess:  this is about people who call themselves "pro-life" (but happen to be anti-vax) who want to force others to follow their religious dictates while claiming to be in favor of "religious freedom"?

I guess from now on, all christian women want to be called cows and slapped if they speak.  Good to know.

I'm sure some of them will claim that being treated as worthless baby producers makes them special and respected.

An old employee of mine asked why I would have a wife that worked as an engineer and why did I listen to her opinions.  My response was that I wanted children who were superior rather than weak, stupid little shiats that were created by worthless stupid cows and then stared at him so he knew I was referring to his wife.  He quit soon after, which was fine.

"Light segregation" is happening now with the cancel movement.  We need to get back to dark segregation, like White Jesus intended.

Hahahahahahahahahaha because there are just so many laws mandating maternity/paternity leave these days, and so many reasonably priced daycares and multi bedroom homes. F*ck these people, f*ck every single one of them.

What is the constitutional argument for outlawing abortion? I'm not finding anything in news articles beyond the reverse Air Bud rule of "there's no rule in the constitution that says abortion is allowed."

Conservatives want to be ruled. Forcing a woman to go through with a pregnancy is no different than forcing someone to give up blood or an organ to someone else because that other person deserves it. This is the kind of control conservatives crave to be subjected to. They fear and hate anyone who wants to make different choices.
