JFC...to what end?

Meta would have raised that child as its own.
 
2022-08-09 3:49:17 PM  
This is so farked up.
 
2022-08-09 3:57:01 PM  
Cool.

Coooooool.
 
2022-08-09 4:04:25 PM  
It's not good or cool or anything BUT the court ordered them to do it.
Your cellular carrier would have done the same thing.
Or your ISP.

Why is the court ordering anything in this case?  She had the abortion prior to SCOTUS's farked up ruling.

Anyone who ever had an abortion in the states where it was already against the law but SCOTUS blocked it is retroactively guilty, apparently.

I don't understand that part either.

This is all so terribly farked up.

I thought this ex post facto bs was illegal in the US?

Of course I thought lots of things were illegal in the before times.

It was after the 20-week limit as dictated by state law.

The activists you called hysterical for decades were right. Surprise.

*nods*   I see that now.   What a farked up situation.  28 weeks is still within the legal timeframe for about half of the States.

That and the thousands of "liberal" "progressives" that work directly or indirectly for Facebook who aren't immediately quitting in disgust.
 
2022-08-09 4:36:50 PM  
Is this doesn't finally kill farking Facebook nothing will.  Maybe not for the old Trumpers, etc...

I'm not sure anybody on the left has ever called a pro-choice activist "hysterical", unless they told a really good joke, or loud fart.

Because she had it 26 weeks, Nebraska law is 20. The article makes this pretty clear.

Reading it was depressing as fsck. I don't even have any snark.
 
2022-08-09 4:37:37 PM  
If this was in response to a court order, let's roll our eyes instead at the Judge who approved this.
 
2022-08-09 4:37:45 PM  
I hate Facebook and deleted my account a decade ago, never looked back, but the court ordered them to hand over records, it's not like they leaked or volunteered information in the absence of a court order for that exact information. Many reasons to hate on Facebook starting with Cambridge Analytica and moving forward from there, this just isn't one of them.

Why couldn't Zuckerbot have been permanently incapacitated in a college hazing mishap?

That just seems so arbitrary and pointless, like banning weed.  It isn't the rule of law, it is punishment for the sake of creating punishment.  Cruel and evil.

I sure hope they're handing over messages between by the 1/6 conspirators and their associates with similar efficiency and quickness.

It's a good reason for hating Facebook.  They helped the government punish someone who did nothing wrong.
 
2022-08-09 4:39:58 PM  
Another reason why I do not use or have FB Messenger or the FB app on my phone.

A female had the audacity to assert control over her own body.  Surely that warrants any investigative measures necessary.

You've gotta draw the line somewhere, right? I have no idea what makes 20 weeks vs 28 weeks special or whatever developmentally, though. That line should be left up to scientists and medical professionals though, not farking legislators.
 
2022-08-09 4:41:48 PM  
None of this would be happening if Hillary Clinton had been elected POTUS.
 
2022-08-09 4:42:08 PM  
This is disgusting and I laughed at the fact that an abortificant is called Pregnot
 
2022-08-09 4:42:58 PM  
Wow, that's beyond farked up - even for that souless bastard Zuckerberg.

Ugg, you are making me defend Facebook on this issue and I hate you a little for it.

They had no choice, what the teen did in that state is against the law.

The law demanded they hand over the records.

The law, and by extension conservatives, are the problem in this specific situation.

28 weeks with medications for use in the first trimester. That part bothers me. I can't know the reason's and I will not judge, but using medications not approved for that late in pregnancy makes me very sad. It makes me think of back alley abortions.
 
2022-08-09 4:43:33 PM  
And they're going to prosecute the woman who had the abortion as an adult too, even though she was a minor at the time.

Fascists can't load the prisons full of poor people fast enough.
 
2022-08-09 4:43:36 PM  
How hard do you have to punch a Zuckerbot in order to trigger a reboot?
 
2022-08-09 4:43:53 PM  
Facebook is literally a Doomsday Machine.
 
2022-08-09 4:43:53 PM  
FTA- "Burgess was 28 weeks pregnant,"

The survival rate for a baby born at 28 weeks is 90%.

I don't think there are any European countries that allow abortions after 18 weeks.

Ex post facto laws apply if you're a godless liberal commie race mixing traitor

If Washington had surrendered we would have reasonable gun laws, universal healthcare, and access to abortion.

It should, because that's where we're at with this.

Hate the judge, hate the court order, I certainly do. Your ISP would have done exactly what Facebook did if they got a court order for your data, are you quitting the internet altogether? No, didn't think so.

In this specific case Facebook didn't "help" anything. They didn't squeal on the poor kid. They got a court order and did what the court order required. What exactly were the alternatives?

It's also illegal to perform your own at home abortion.

90% chance of survival at 28 weeks.  That's a viable human being at that point.

So no, it wasn't just her body in this case
 
2022-08-09 4:46:53 PM  
I can't believe FB would use the data I provide to them in a way that might harm me. How about STOP PUTTING EVERY DETAIL OF YOUR LIFE ON SOCIAL MEDIA. Also SOCIAL MEDIA HAS NEVER BEEN TRUSTABLE, get a brain morans.

Sounds like the state has a solid case that she conspired to commit murder. She should be sentenced to death for her heinous crime against humanity or, if they're feeling especially torturous, sentenced for eternity to be a rape slave to a powerful male somewhere in Nebraska who wants a concubine.

We only hurt them because they don't do what they are told.
