Well, do it anyway and then wait three weeks and maybe we'll approve the PET scan. And just hope that those weeks aren't critical in your cancer treatment. Thanks for playing.

No. For example, if a woman is in need of a late term abortion, it's probably because they found labor would pose a grave threat to her life, or the baby is going to be stillborn, or some other tragic reason.

The discussion is between a woman and her doctor. Leave the government out of it.

Pregnancy tests can give you results even before your first missed period so don’t act like there’s no way of knowing before six weeks.

"Can" being the operative word, not "do." For many women, they don't. They have no way of knowing.

Getting pregnant is a result that can happen when not taking precautions...

Ok Boomer. I'm not even going to justify this drivel with a response, you already know why.

That law you you are speaking of specifically goes after anyone who performs an abortion on a woman after six weeks not a woman who has one.

Fine. Still a steaming pile of batshit legislation though.

“the bill allows any person to bring a civil suit against anyone who performs, induces, or aids and abets the performance or inducement of an abortion”

So not the woman, but her sister who drove her to the clinic. Phew, everything's fine here then!

I don’t even know what you are getting at here.

Your claim that miscarriages would not be investigated. Clearly there are legislators who are itching to do just that.

No it doesn’t and it’s still not the Supreme Courts decision that bans any abortions in any state. Most states that you think ban abortions actually have heartbeat laws which means you can only have an abortion until about six weeks into a woman’s pregnancy.

De facto vs de jure. Most women are not aware they are pregnant yet at six weeks. These are bans.

You need to get your facts straight. You are talking about a one time case where a woman was charged not sued for administering her own abortion.

Nope, I'm talking about this: https://accessiblelaw.untdallas.edu/texass-abortion-bill-who-can-sue

You’re talking about the same case where a woman tried administer her own abortion at home. She lied to the hospital staff and said it was a miscarriage.

Nope, and there are many cases. Here's a hit from Google; you can find others: https://www.harpersbazaar.com/culture/politics/a27454956/what-does-georgias-abortion-law-mean-women-who-miscarry/

You’re either just parroting what you have been told without looking into it yourself or you’re being purposely deceitful to try to make your argument.

Try again~~~

I’d say if the government says take this vaccine or lose your livelihood

In all of the government mandates (perhaps excepting NY), negative test results were always an option.

Well if you’re masked and vaccinated aren’t you totally protected

Masks are to protect others and vaccines aren't 100% effective. You know this, you're just being a cock.

🙄 I'll ignore the ad hominem at the start, rightard.

Repealing Roe vs Wade does not make abortions illegal or legal

It does immediately in many states. Do women not live in those states?

they can just go to a state that allows them.

Except for states like Texas that sue women for doing this, or the places that want to investigate any woman for even a miscarriage.

By the way weren’t guys just all about taking away peoples right to decide what they want in their body a month or two ago? What happened?

1) Was mandatory vaccination ever on the table? 2) can you spread pregnancy by breathing on someone? 🤣

Since we're playing fast and loose with the definition of murder: let's say this pregnancy is ectopic or septic or otherwise likely lethal for the woman. Is the baby attempting murder on the woman? Does the woman have the right to defend herself in this case?

I did read the links. The CT curriculum seems like a black history course; didn't see any references to CRT in a skim. And your second link is a lovely description of how CRT used to have a specific legal definition but now means "anything conservatives don't like", so not really helping your case there.

Your description of white fragility sounds like you learned about it exclusively from Tucker Carlson and demonstrates a lack of ability to introspect. Which, hey, that's pretty much what it's about.

And I'm not an SJW. I'm just someone who recognizes that yes, Jim Crow happened, and yes, it was bad. Holy shit, CRT over here! Better not teach kids any American history before 1990 or the white kids might feel uncomfortable.

A free society punishes authorities for reckless speech and permits individuals to say whatever. A totalitarian society punishes individuals for unauthorized speech and permits the authorities to say whatever. Which society does the United States more resemble in the winter of 2022? -Daniel Flynn by StillLessons in quotes

At the moment? Such social pressure has always existed. People still get disowned for being gay, but imagine it 30 years ago!

Imagine missing church one Sunday and the entire town talking about you behind your back. How's that for social pressure? Now let's roll back a few hundred years and you'd be getting investigated by the Inquisition or accused of witchery.

Honestly, social pressure is probably lower than it's ever been, with the recent moves toward openness and acceptance. But I don't think humanity will ever stop calling people out for being assholes.

Does this Flynn guy really think individuals aren't permitted to say whatever? Has he seen the nonsense on Twitter?

For contrast, the thousands of protesters in Moscow have already been rounded up and jailed. After a single day.

Ah, so it's freedom of religion you object to, not immigration. Got it, I misunderstood your original point then.

Ignoring the entire libleft quadrant? Nice

Implying that the right (and alt-right especially!) aren't authoritarian? Nice

Aww, you don't know what the left stands for, but you hate them anyway because you're obsessed with identity politics and tribalism, how cute!

Ummm yeah? She got murdered. And she was actually trying to follow the words of Jesus; she sounds like a better person than most.

(Also I love how you threw a "who is black" in there when it's not at all relevant to the story.)

Grandma has a higher chance of surviving bungee jumping than she does getting covid, but I don't see octogenarians doing that very often.

I think grandmas do honestly understand the risk and they aren't willing to take it. So I'm not sure what your point is here.
