Enjoy, Nebraskans. Let us know how it works out. (We already know).

I wonder if we can start a GoFundMe or Patreon to get the 12 non-Republicans out of that hellhole.

Anyone care to list the obvious side effects of this one?  I'll start

- Increase in deaths associated with giving birth
- Increase in deaths associated with miscarriages
- Collapse of IVF in the state
- Increase in crime starting in 2042

Hey, Cherokee Nation and other reservations, time to set up abortion clinics and bring in that sweet tourism money.  Can't persecute people for state law violations when they cross that border.

I know they don't actually GAF, but, it's going to be a hell of a thing when they have to start reporting on the botched back alley abortions and dead women.

I called it when SCOTUS refused to issue an injunction on Texas' private enforcement system. "Private enforcement" is just an easy way to say "Well, it's not technically illegal."

This how the repeal of Loving, Obergefell, and countless others starts. This is just the first domino.

The governor has already preemptively threatened the tribes if they make any move to do such a thing.

If the voters had returned Democratic senate majorities the last four elections we wouldn't be anywhere close to this position.

So yes, if you want to avoid laws like this on the back of an extremist Supreme Court you need to vote, and win, every election.

It also allows abortion if the pregnancy is the result of rape or incest, as long as that crime has been reported to law enforcement.

"Hey cop, I was raped, I was walking at night and the suspect was wearing glasses, a mask, and a hoodie so I can't ID him, now I'm pregnant."

Voters gave Democrats all the power they need to get shiat done. They have the power to legislate, they have the power to expand SCOTUS, and they have the power to prosecute insurrectionist members of Congress who shouldn't be voting in the House or Senate.

Voters gave Democrats enough to get it done. Democrats lack the desire to do anything about anything, so Republicans are going to kill us all.

Come on over to the great free land of the Cherokee, abortions and roulette!

This is so absurd...

The same people that love to quote Ronnie and promote the absurdly simpleton one-liner philosophy of,
"I'm from the Government I'm  here to help you.."  as bad.. Are the the same people that are exposing the
"I'm from the government, i'm here to save you from yourself.." philosophy...

I don't see a difference there...

Asked on "Fox News Sunday" how he would help women who carried out their pregnancies despite financial or other challenges that would make it difficult to raise a child, Mr. Stitt blamed the "socialist democrat left" for attempting to abort poor children.

"We believe that God has a special plan for every single life and every single child, and we want everybody to have the same opportunities in Oklahoma, and aborting a child is not the right answer," he said.


Fark you, shiatbag. You don't give a shiat about women or babies.

Well yeah... duh. The crime will be the woman not moaning to be "filled up like a Dodge Ram 2500" when the man winks during the act.

So has anyone started building a network for helping women travel for abortions?  I'm picturing something similar to the green book that black people used to travel more safely around the country prior to the civil rights movement.  If not, it's a good time to get started.

Sure, 4 times in one state. And if that's all the mattered we'd be able to get everything we wanted done. Unfortunately with only 50 Democratic senators, and at least 2 of which are Republicans in disguise, it doesn't matter.

So yes. Want stuff done? Get more democrats in the senate.

This isn't the solution it sounds like for victims of rape who then have to maintain contact with their rapists in a shared custody scenario.

It also doesn't do much for a woman, or her family, when she's going to die from a pregnancy that's gone sideways.
