Abortion Measure Heads To Governor I'm almost too angry to even make a coherent post. When will they learn that it is unneccesary (and impossible) to control female sexuality? I do believe that's what's truly behind anti-abortion movements. If it were really about saving lives, why did they take so long to make it legal to simply abandon unwanted babies with law-enforcement officials, and firefighters? I remember being a little girl when I first heard the suggestion being debated at my supper table. Pro-life has never been about babies, it has always been about controlling women, and the women who have been blinded and who would deny their sisters the right to control their own bodies sickens me. These new tactics equate to terrorism. How dare these fucking bastards!? Read: The bill also tightens consent laws for minors and requires abortion providers to perform a sonogram and give the pregnant woman an opportunity to listen to a fetal heartbeat. It is just one of several abortion laws being considered across the country. South Carolina lawmakers this week discussed a measure that would force a woman to view ultrasound images of the fetus before undergoing an abortion. In Oklahoma, a House committee on Tuesday approved several abortion measures, including one that would define abortion, in part, as a procedure in which a drug is injected into a fetus' heart to cause death. And in Kentucky, a bill being considered would require that a woman considering an abortion be informed that at 20 weeks an "unborn child has the physical structures necessary to experience pain." The normal gestation period is 40 weeks. This makes me feel very confrontational. I'm contacting the ACLU to find out what they plan to do.
