"Jack Resneck, president of the American Medical Association, told Politico they are seeing examples like this across the country. "These are not just rare anecdotes," said Resneck. "The quantity we're hearing - and we know we're only hearing a tiny fraction of what's going on - is significant."'

A vote for any republican is a vote for evil and to take away civil rights.

My medical won't change and I have a uterus. It's in a jar on the shelf.

So fear of running afoul of government regulations and laws is hindering people's access to healthcare. 
Clearly what we need here is more regulation and laws to fix the problem caused by the regulations and laws.

For being such a small subset of our population, white male heterosexual Christian evangelicals sure do have a talent for f****** up a nation.

If you're a woman or care about any woman then you can't vote Republican in good conscience.
If you do vote Republican you're damn near soulless.

There's no "damn near" anymore.  Politics is binary.  You're either soulless, or not.  You either care about other people's lives, or not.  You're either worth the air you breath, or not.

I don't know.  By this logic get rid of ID check for booze. Fun fact. The law is DON'T sell to kids. The law doesn't tell scumbags like Circle K and Target how to avoid that.

I don't know if I can agree with your logic: idiot reaction to law is law's fault.

Anyone who tells you that you have no right to take out that baby in your womb that you never wanted, should be... joyfully given a baby in their womb by kind non-homed people on a random romantic evening trip. Let's see if their opinion doesn't change then.

Back to being property like Jesus intended

You're reading something that isn't there.  I said MORE laws were needed, not less.  The answer is always MORE laws, not less.  Get with the program.  I suggest Reading Rainbow.

2022-10-02 10:35:43 PM  
Yep, it's right there in the laws, folks. Or rather it isn't there.

Since the laws prescribe harsh penalties for causing the death of a fetus  but zero guidance for causes besides abortion (such as hypothetically killing a hypothetical fetus because of the mother taking medication for another real disease that might hypothetically impact the hypothetical fetus the mother might hypothetically have) doctors have to act as if "prescribing medication for rheumatoid arthritis" is exactly the same as "aborting a 9-month fetus" because UNDER THE LAW the doctors can be charged the same way IF a hypothetical fetus were to suffer harm.

And legislators have become suddenly wary of saying anything that might be construed as pro OR anti abortion since this is such a hot-button topic.

Every woman in the US should schedule a hysterectomy now.
Let's see what the reaction is when the drs and hospitals are flooded with requests and everyone needs to face the facts on who actually controls the birthrate in this country.

Oh, and stop all sex.  We need a country wide sex strike until things change.  Yes these old bastards who make the laws can't get it up but they will have intense pressure from the public. We men will sacrifice what we need to so women get their rights back.

pastramithemosterotic: One assumes we had proper medical care to begin with


Blah blah blah. We had less improper medical care. Obviously the medical care was proper enough that people who needed certain medications were getting them and now are not getting them; so something that was working before is not working now.

We don't just have to not vote republican.  We MUST demand that all Democrat votes are votes for militant Dems who are willing to make the hard choice and use the military to eliminate the threat to Our Democracy.  Tolerance of the ultra maga is the same as a vote for a Republican.

Only the power of blood can heal the land, and usher us to a new age of aquarius.

A hysterectomy wreaks havoc on your body. Lots of hormones are produced there. Tubal ligation would be the correct procedure in this case.

But I get where you're coming from.

Next up: female sterilization procedures are outlawed for reasons.

Their sympathizers are many and varied.  Hoping to eat up the crumbs.  Such as the women that support them. And black white supremacists like Larry elder.

The doctors just say no. I've known many women whom are done with having children and asked their doctor to do just that. They won't do a hysterectomy on a healthy uterus for a woman they consider to still be 'of child bearing age' in case silly little fluffy headed thing (or her husband/Lord) changes her feather headed mind.

Or we could write sane laws to solve real problems, that don't inspire fear in people looking for standard of healthcare that would be reasonable in any civilized part of the world.

Or we could continue to write even more insane laws that solve scary imaginary problems so that subservient men with tiny penises and fragile egos can control things they will never understand, because trying to understand the world has always taken second place for them, before subservience to all-powerful being, who they fear will smite them unless they write these insane laws.

Yeah, because your state legislators haven't stepped up and made abortion legal.

Yeah, about the no sex thing. They are already talking about repealing the 1989 Federal law giving women the right to prosecute their husbands for rape.
