(Politico)   GOP Rep Nancy Mace thinks her party will "pay a price" if they "go too far" in restricting abortion rights and that "Somewhere in the middle is where we've got to meet.". Oh so, like a compromise where only 3/5ths of abortions are banned?   (politico.com) divider line

All they had to do was do a slow burn with the roll backs.  Just a few here or there, but not anything extreme.  Get the Dems complacent with okay, it's not too bad after all.  Let them get control of a few more statehouses.  Wait until after the midterm election, or hell wait until after 2024.  But nope, they saw the opening and went sprinting towards the goal line.

The question is, will the Dems be able to block the charge and turn things around.

They didn't do that because they COULDN'T   There are a lot of single-issue anti-abortion voters whp are kinda repelled by the rest of the GOP agenda ( I know a lot of little old Catholic ladies who think Dorothy Day should be canonized, but still vote R because of the abortion thing) .  Repealing Roe was always the stated goal, and now that it has happened, those voters might be tempted to declare victory and get the hell out.   So it's vitally necessary that the abortion fight seem like it is anything but over, no matter HOW extreme  they have to go to pass a new law

The middle on this that's she talking about, would probably be still banning all the abortions, but just not crowing about it so much.

The stupid thing is "Pro-Choice" *is* the f*cking middle ground in the abortion debate.  It's not like there's a group advocating for "Mandatory Abortions," but there clearly are "No Abortions Ever" groups.
 
2022-08-08 12:56:49 PM  
The only acceptable middle is Abortions for those who want or need one, nutpunches for the men who complain about it.

These dipshiats forget that legal abortion up to 25 weeks is the "somewhere in the middle" everybody could live with until the GOP decided to use the Evangelical Right's self-righteous zealotry to power their political machine.
 
2022-08-08 2:50:28 PM  
Human rights should not be a bargaining chip.
 
2022-08-08 2:50:39 PM  
Here's my compromise - before 20 weeks (generally agreed to be the standard of viability), at will abortions.

After 20 weeks, pull the fetus out.  Give it standard premie post natal care.  If it survives - mom can either decided to keep it or put it up for adoption.

Roe WAS the compromise. Unfortunately, the religious-minded faithful don't compromise. So unless we address the underlying problem of religion, we'll keep having these stupid fights.

How about if you don't want an abortion don't get one.
 
2022-08-08 2:53:32 PM  
I swear to god it's like nobody actually read the Roe decision. It WAS a compromise. It explicitly talked about balancing the rights of the mother and the unborn child. It ultimately decided that the mother's rights should take precedence up until the viability of the fetus, at which point states can regulate it. That's why, under Roe, basically no state allowed elective third trimester abortions.

The vast majority of the country was satisfied with this compromise until the Supreme Court blew it up at the behest of the Republican party, which had been running on overturning Roe for 40 years.

The cons made their bed. Now they can lay in it.

Golly gee, it's almost as if aligning your party with a group of uncompromising who believe abortion should be outlawed in all cases because abortion is worse than The Holocaust was a bad idea.

Educate about sex education and a lot of this issue goes away.  It was never about saving "lives".  It is about control.  Idiot here may not realize it but the shot callers do.

Keep them impoverished and begging.
Keep them indebted.
We either get more cheap fodder for our war machine or cheap labor in prison.

They tried. The Indiana law has exceptions for rape and incest and the life of the durty hoor, er, I mean mother. This is despite the constant screeching that rape babies are God's gift to women.

I hope there is a wave that is a near total sweep driving many of these f**ks from their comfy seats. When all is said and done the results leave Biden with a 63 seat majority, neutering Sinema, Manchin, and others.

Then I hope Thomas, Alito, and Roberts all die from various age related medical problems leaving Joe to replace all three with a 60+ seat majority.

Won't happen but it would be nice to watch the Federalist Society fascists lose their shiat.

Pulling the fetus out before viability will almost certainly kill the kid, is unnecessarily invasive surgery for the mom which could likely kill her too.

This might not be the absolute worst idea, but it's close and inventive thinking.

That would be insanely expensive (about 750k per child) and the kids would likely die. That's torture.

My kids were born around 30 weeks and they were farking tiny. One had to be bagged multiple times and was close to death. At 20 weeks, viable is a stretch, unless the F was developing faster than normal.

Babies feel pain.  Having tubes and shiat shoved in them is painful.  Infections are painful.

Not to mention delivering at 20 weeks is way more invasive than an abortion.

A woman should not be forced to be a life support machine for another human.  Full stop.

A baby shouldn't be tortured to satisfy someone's religious beliefs.

I've got a compromise: We'll ban abortions for roughly half the population, the other half retain the right to choose whether or not to have an abortion.

Those banned will be males, as defined by those with XY chromosomes.

Well, that's only ~49.5% of the population. Tell you what, we'll throw in women over 90 years old as well. which puts the total distinctly over half of the population.

Now, considering that many of those with the right to choose will not choose to have an abortion at any point in their lives (up until 90 years old, as agreed above), That is a solid majority of the population that will remain abortion free.

That is one hell of an offer I'm making, skewed very much toward the anti-choice side.  Either take this compromise, or I'm going to go back to my default of "everyone has the right to choose."

I am not the most culturally in tuned person, but does it seem that "dancing" shows have a high number of (former) politicians and pundits?

Do they show up on other reality contest shows that much?

What about mandatory abortions for fetuses with a gene fault that will likely cause them to be a burden to society, or of those of mixed race?

I think some of her party members would like that.

"I am staunchly pro-life. I have a 100 percent pro-life voting record. I do think that it will be an issue in November if we're not moderating ourselves, that we are including exceptions for women who've been raped, for girls who are victims of incest and, certainly, in every instance where the life of the mother is at stake," Mace said. "Somewhere in the middle is where we've got to meet."

Also, fark you! You guys got what you wanted for decades. If it farks you over, good!

The "middle ground" on anything as far as Republicans are concerned means "we do whatever we want and shiat all over the people who say anything about it so they shut up."

Works great with the "liberal" media.

She's calling for a compromise with Democrats after 30-40 years of dehumanizing Fox News  propaganda?? I'm sure the mildly mannered denizens of the maga-verse will be happy to support it.

Well, RvW was the compromise. But here we are.

How about just restricting abortions for the people who follow their religion. They want a theocracy; it should only apply to their adherents.

Everyone gets what they want.

Absolutely agree. But for whatever reason it was on the table for the Dems but the GOP were absolutely hellbent against even that, so we got full marriage instead - which is a good thing
