What Happens When Abortion Opponents Turn Lies into Law?

  • Abortion opponents across the country are telling lies and then turning those lies into dangerous laws. These opponents claim the laws will help women’s health, but they really make it harder for women to access abortion care. They must be stopped.

March 3, 2016 | Over the past five years, abortion opponents have quietly passed hundreds of restrictive laws. These laws try to deny a woman access to abortion care, even when that means lying to her, delaying her care, requiring tests she doesn’t need, making it cost more than it should, and shutting down reproductive health clinics. As a result, abortion care is being pushed out of reach for many.

Some legislators are transparent and acknowledge that the bills they support are designed to stop abortion altogether (such as outright abortion bans), but others are not. As a result, a large majority of abortion restrictions are promoted under the guise of supporting “women’s health” or “informed consent,” using lies about abortion, about women who decide on abortion and about the trusted health care professionals who provide abortion care. When these lies are turned into laws, doctors are forced to lie to their patients, health care clinics are shut down, and women are denied care.

Lets Stop Shaming Ourselves for Having Robust and Healthy Sex Lives, Compiled by David Culver, Ed., Evergreene Digest 

  • Let's stop shaming females for having robust and healthy sex lives, or for being in touch with and honoring their physical desires. Let's instead give these young women the tools they need to arm themselves for participation in healthy sexual relationships: namely, confidence, pregnancy and disease prevention, and knowledge of consent and the right to full bodily autonomy.

It's Called Gendercide: Armed Husbands Shoot Eight Women In One Week, Six Die, Martha Rosenberg, OpEdNews 

  • The NRA … likes to say no laws can stop partner murderers, ignoring every developed country in the world where domestic gun homicide does not happen weekly--or at all. If seven men were shot in the head in one week by wives who were known to be violent, armed and dangerous would it say the same thing?

Obama Admin Warns GOP: Try To Illegally Defund Planned Parenthood, Things Will End Badly For You, Jameson Parker, Addicting Info

  • Lawmakers in Alabama and Louisiana should be embarrassed of themselves. If you ever wake up to discover that you’ve received a letter from the HHS letting you know your plan to screw the poor is so repugnant that it actually crosses the line into being illegal, you’re the bad guy. If you then continue to fight the federal government over the issue by spending thousands of dollars in legal fees for a battle you will ultimately lose, you’re approaching comic book villain territory.

03/16/2016 | In the state of Idaho, officers like Bingham County Sheriff Craig Rowland get to decide whether to have a rape kit tested.

The problem is Rowland doesn't believe most rape victims were assaulted in the first place.

Rowland complained that state lawmakers were trying to force local agencies to get every rape kit tested. Rape kits contain DNA samples taken from the victim that include the assailant's blood, saliva or semen. A lab can cross-reference the DNA with a national database to identify the assailant.
