45 million abortions or so since Roe vs Wade is more deaths than pretty much anything else. The womb is a dangerous place if you are put into the wrong one.

The House just passed HR36 aka the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, a law that would ban abortion after 20 weeks nationwide and punish those who perform them after that point with up to five years in prison.
Contact your senators and demand that they vote NO to eroding what’s left of our right to control our own bodies and reproductive fates.

Contact your representatives and give them a piece of your mind.

Text RESIST to 50409.

Call the U.S. Senate Switchboard at (202) 224-3121.

Call the U.S. House of Representative Switchboard at (202)225-3121.

Most abortions after 20 weeks are already due to health issues due to them being nonviable, this is a way to punish poor people for having sex, and not adhering to narrow religious beliefs, pure and simple.

In about a hundred years or so, I wonder if people will really believe that the anti-abortion movement was mainly led by religious people.

Or, will they refer to the pro-life atheist websites that exist, then point to babies being killed in the Old Testament, and conclude

So on the specific question of abortion, yes, those Christian pro-lifers were advocating for life in spite of their holy texts - and a good thing that was, too.
I want everyone to watch the Futurama episode "The Problem with Popplers". And, if possible, the King of the Hill episode "Dale Be Not Proud". They don't have anything to do with abortion directly. But they're popular culture items that helped cement my opinion when I was younger.

In an attempt to fight the propaganda spread by anti-choicers bearing false witness, a Dutch doctor posted a picture of a 6-week abortion on twitter.

Tell the Mayo Clinic their art is wrong. Not even being sarcastic.

The state of Alabama is charging a woman with manslaughter for the miscarriage of a fetus that she lost due to being shot.

I might be confusing the case but I think she was assaulting the guy that shot her.

Completely different based on Kak's link

Quote:
Marshae Jones was five months pregnant when she got into an argument on a December afternoon last year outside a Dollar Store in Birmingham, Alabama. The argument escalated and the 27-year-old was shot in the stomach. Jones was rushed to the hospital and eventually recovered, but the shooting ended her pregnancy. Police initially charged the shooter, 23-year-old Ebony Jemison, with manslaughter for firing on Jones in what police say was a dispute over the man who was the father-to-be, but the charges were dismissed after the grand jury declined to indict Jemison because she was acting in self-defense. On Wednesday, however, an Alabama grand jury instead charged Jones with manslaughter for the miscarriage. Why? “The investigation showed that the only true victim in this was the unborn baby,’’ local police Lt. Danny Reid said at the time of the shooting. “It was the mother of the child who initiated and continued the fight which resulted in the death of her own unborn baby.” Marshae Jones is now in jail.

Still sounds like it COULD be reckless endangerment by picking a fight with someone. But without knowing the details I have no idea. Fucked up that she's not considered a victim even though she was shot, though.

Even if she did start the fight I can't conceive of any reason to have criminal charges brought against her

The charge was dropped. There should be like a 3 day grace period on inflammatory news stories where we do our best not to take them at face value and jump to conclusions.

The fact that charges were brought at all is concerning, there's always the possibility that outcry and attention contributes towards dumb charges being dropped.
