Question to you idiots who cannot control your own sex life (I thought YOU were responsible for YOUR own body?) Why not take the morning after pill and then shut up?

BC pills change a woman's reproductive cycle in that her ovaries no longer produce & then release a mature egg. If she doesn't ovulate there's no egg and thus no fertilization of an egg can occur. There's no 'killing' of anything involved. How is it that so many (especially "pro-lifers") do not know this? I'm embarrassed for them; they're too uneducated to be embarrassed at their own lack of basic reproductive knowledge. And some of them are senators sponsoring these bills. No excuse.

That is beyond a stretch, it is simply unconstitutional action by the court. Activism from the bench is unconstitutional period. You leftists simply fail to grasp such a simple concept. Back in elementary school most of us learned about separation of powers and what each branch of government could and could not do. Maybe all the kids drooling on their desk in civics class grew up to be leftists I dont know.

The 14tg amendment was written to protect blacks from discrimination after the civil war. That is the laws intent.......not baby killing, not special rights for homosexuals, not affirmative action etc. The 14th amendment protects US citizens from institutionalized racism and mistreatment based on race. Itís legitimacy could also be questioned because it was passed without the southern states. You leftists donít even acknowledge that.

Point me to where the word Black, Negro, or equivalent is written in the 14th Amendment. The Amendment was written to apply to all citizens.

50% of those who get abortions were using birth control. If you’re on BC, why would you take the morning after pill??

As to the other 50%, yes they should be more responsible. But it’s hard to do so when your state defunds Planned Parenthood and the closest one is 300 miles away or bans the most effective BC methods or doesn’t have programs in place to assist with easily available low cost or no cost BC for those who can’t afford it. Instead they mandate Sex Ed that teaches nothing but abstinence. Super helpful of them.

If states want more responsibility maybe they should stop putting policies in placed that make it as difficult as possible to be responsible.

Missouri joins the Red State Rush, banning abortion after 8 weeks, with no exception for rape or incest. The only exception in when the life of the woman is endangered.

This whole movement is sickening, especially if you've ever read The Handmaid's Tale (or watched the TV series)

And they apparently have a surfeit of OB/GYNs, as they plan to imprison the doctors. Let's look at the stats ...

Hmmm. Maternal mortality is ... high.

Quote:
The United Health Foundation’s 2016 Health of Women and Children Report pegged the national average at about 19.9 deaths per 100,000 live births, while Missouri’s maternal mortality rate was 28.5 deaths per 100,000 live births, which ranked 42nd nationally. Kansas clocked in at 19.6 and states like California (5.9) and Massachusetts (5.8) were well under double digits.
Source:
Kansas City Star - Mortality rate for pregnant Missouri women is high. Here's why.

How about infant mortality?

6.2 - high, though not as high as Alabama and Georgia. Seems their priorities are misplaced.

I've read the book, and watched the first season of the series. The feeling of dread and recognition was too much for me while we were caregivers for my husband's parents (they were in home hospice), so I didn't watch after that. I don't like the direction we're going, into dystopia.

Not in the whole country, no. At worst it may be something only certain states are open to, much like physician assisted suicide is becoming.

What people NEED to understand and accept is that these are not universally accept practices. Life is ending either way and for a large number of people that can never be considered business as usual. Yelling and screaming at them won't change their minds and only makes you look like the unhinged, immoral, death lovers they they see you as.

For the record I'm pro-choice and pro physician assisted suicide...both with HARD LIMITS though. There comes a point, currently with abortion but maybe with PAS later, where we stop thinking or caring about it at all, and we shouldn't let ourselves get there.
