They're just mocking us at this point, aren't they?

No, they're dead serious. They're just finding excuses to oppress people. this is who we are now, as a country.

They're establishing a patriarchy at this point.

I always wondered what it would be like to live in the 12th Century.

The Florida appeals court isn't mature enough to make rulings and yet here we are.

Well, we already have the dying of preventable diseases part down.

Medieval peasants actually worked shorter hours than we do today and had more days off for feasts.

And don't you dare apply for welfare and SNAP so you can get medical care and food!

If you live in Florida or Texas, and have more than 2 brain cells, you need to move out now.

She's not old enough to be officially poor, I bet.

If I were her, and was forced to have the kid, would be taking advantage of Baby Moses law in the area.   But you watch, they'll look at closing that loophole in the coming months

Probably not :(

Abortion is just the first step.  Religious RWNJs want to impose all of their beliefs on everyone. If they can control more of Congress and the courts, they will never stop with the sharia nonsense.

They really are the American Taliban.

The Taliban Taliban are running a country with more permissive abortion laws than around a quarter of US states.

Contemptible court.  Just barbaric.
 
2022-08-16 12:36:11 PM  
That's slavery.

She should discover Canada's great camping grounds. Indeed, a camp site is available to tend to her every need, free of charge.
 
2022-08-16 12:36:50 PM  
In sure they'll see the hypocrisy in this and relent.
 
2022-08-16 12:36:57 PM  
Wait I wasn't mature enough to have a drink underage legally, so I should have been forced to drink a case of beer? Ok, open that can of worms in a court record.
 
2022-08-16 12:37:10 PM  
If you haven't been pregnant and given birth, you simply cannot wrap your brain around the full gamut of the physical and emotional rollercoaster. We need and deserve a CHOICE, full stop. I'm tired of these ChristoFascist dickwads forcing others to endure something they'll never have to without even pretending to try and understand everything they should about it.

If we had any sort of functional media that could keep the political class accountable as they're supposed to, journalists would be breaking this judge's door down and forcing him to parse his logic.

I also saw one of the crappiest headlines on MSNBC. Afghanistan: how young women lost their rights overnight.

Dude.

There are not enough cuss words in the English language for me to express how incredibly backwards and farked up this is.

It's because the precipice between words and actions have long since past.

It turns out the reason right wingers were screaming about Shariah Law all this time was because their laws were not crazy and restrictive enough.

Florida People get what Florida People vote for.

Like...I want to feel bad...I genuinely do, but the voters just keep...rewarding this.
 
2022-08-16 12:40:23 PM  
This logic has never made sense. You are not mature enough to decide you don't want a baby so we will force you to have a baby that your immature self will have to raise. Nothing can go wrong.
 
2022-08-16 12:40:51 PM  
Just read this, Subby left out an important detail.

The court ruled that this minor child was not mature enough to get an abortion without her parents consent.

Apparently the parents do not consent. The parents have a right and the responsibility to raise their minor child.

The flip side of the argument are parents who force their minor children to have abortions when the child doesn't want to have the abortion because they love their rapist.

Parenting is a sometimes thankless job with hard decisions.

The 12th century allowed abortion.

I wonder how much of this people will take before they won't. If we don't have AC, cable TV, or Internet? Would that irritate people enough to finally put an end to this nonsense?

no need to camp.
Our home here is open to anyone needing a place to stay for trips like that.
If you know someone that is in need you can get a hold of me.

/my house sucks, but it's a bed with a roof over your head.

Camping is a euphemism.

This sucks for that young lady. She should ask her parents how they voted in the last few elections. I bet I know the answer.

"Florida appeals court affirms an order prohibiting a parentless 16-year-old from terminating her pregnancy on the grounds that she has not proved she is mature enough to get an abortion."

They have an obligation to ensure the health and well-being of the child in their care.  They do not, or rather should not, believe they have a right to destroy that child's future on the misguided belief that the child is property that belongs to them.
