Republicans, learning nothing, are about to have an abortion after a failed election
in front of midterm elections 2022, Republicans have predicted that a “red wave” will help them win the Senate and a majority in the House. Apparently, that didn’t happen, and a major factor in turning the red wave into a small, coral-colored stream—in which Democrats retained the Senate and Republicans won an extreme majority. fragile period in the House of Representatives—had an abortion. Galvanized by Supreme Court overturning 50-year precedent in June and uninterested in bringing those who want to continue to abolish the right to choose pregnant women in power, voters turned up in droves to make it clear that reproductive rights really matter. Having had the past two months to think about the situation, has the GOP decided to listen?
No! Of course not! Instead, the party spent last week insisting that it was everyone thought it was a damn show decided to use the entire first week in power to vote on two measures against abortion.
The first act, the Birth Abortion Survivors Protection Act, was introduce again in Monday. What would the passage of this strangely titled work look like law do? Jail doctors for up to 5 years if they fail to revive “born alive” babies after attempting an abortion, regardless of whether the procedure was performed due to fatal fetal abnormalities or are not. Like HuffPost Note, “the bill is full of misinformation,” including the fact that, as actual doctors have pointed out, “infants born during late-stage abortions are almost can’t live.” Nor do proponents of the Born-Alive act concede that such a bill is completely unnecessary for other reasons, such as the right of infants to be protected by a law passed more than 20 years ago. Also, as it happens, murder is illegal in the United States, so despite what anti-abortion advocates may tell you, doctors won’t kill babies.
The second vote is on a Resolution to officially condemn the attacks on “pro-life facilities”. Like Jezebel Note, it is unclear whether there will also be a vote to condemn “real violence at abortion clinics, including the 2009 murder of Dr. And by no means, we explicitly mean that this will never happen.
Talking to reporters on Tuesday, Republican congresswoman Nancy’s Mace “We’re not going to learn anything from the midterms if this is how we’re going to run the first week,” said of his colleagues. Millions of women everywhere are indignant about cheating Roe sues Wade. What we’re doing this week is a lip service response for life. Nothing that we’re doing this week in defense of life will pass the Senate.” She added that she would like to see her party take a more “middle way” on abortion, which is another unlikely in this lifetime, given that hundreds of Republicans even don’t want to guarantee. have the right to Contraception.
Further—and arguably even more disturbing—abortion news, Alabama attorney general Steve Marshall speak Third that women in his state can be prosecuted for using abortion pills to end a pregnancy. Asked by AL.com how this fits with the Alabama Human Life Protection Act, which criminalizes abortion providers but specifically exempts abortion recipients from criminal charges, he replied: “The Human Life Protection Act targets abortion providers, exempting women ‘when an abortion is performed or attempted’ from legal liability. It does not provide a comprehensive waiver of all criminal laws, including chemical hazard laws—which the Alabama Supreme Court has affirmed and reaffirmed will protect unborn children.”
As AL.com notes, the state’s chemical hazard law, passed in 2006, was created to “protect young children from fumes and chemicals from home meth labs” and was used almost immediately against women who used various drugs during pregnancy (even in cases where the drugs they were taking were prescribed by a doctor). As a result, many people have been sent to prison after miscarriages and stillbirths. Last week, the Ministry of Justice speak The United States Postal Service can continue to deliver abortion pills anywhere in the country, regardless of the laws of the state where they are from.
