The Death of Women’s Rights in America

Politics • Views: 19,618

We knew this was coming. The religious fanatics have won.

The Supreme Court on Friday overturned the fundamental right to abortion established nearly 50 years ago in Roe v. Wade, a stunning reversal that could alter the nation’s political landscape and leaves states free to drastically reduce or even outlaw a procedure that abortion rights groups said is key to women’s equality and independence.

“Roe was egregiously wrong from the start. Its reasoning was exceptionally weak, and the decision has had damaging consequences. And far from bringing about a national settlement of the abortion issue, Roe and Casey have enflamed debate and deepened division,” Justice Samuel A. Alito Jr. wrote. “It is time to heed the Constitution and return the issue of abortion to the people’s elected representatives.”

re: #3 Ace Rothstein

This decision is inconsistent with what Justices Gorsuch and Kavanaugh said in their testimony and their meetings with me, where they both were insistent on the importance of supporting long-standing precedents that the country has relied upon.”

— Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME), quoted by the New York Times, adding that “throwing out a precedent overnight that the country has relied upon for half a century is not conservative. It is a sudden and radical jolt to the country that will lead to political chaos, anger, and a further loss of confidence in our government.”

Surprised, concerned, or merely performing?

Adoption isn’t an option when it’s an ectopic pregnancy or the fetus is stillborn and poses an immediate threat to the mother’s life.

This decision ignores my religious beliefs - that a fetus is not a person until born alive and that the mother’s life is sacrosanct. Rather, these Christian extremists have imposed their religious beliefs on everyone else.

Being an Instagram model and “influencer” probably didn’t help with her mental health issues.

Niece Waidhofer, a model and social media influencer, has died by suicide at age 31.

Waidhofer’s family confirmed the news on Thursday to TMZ, saying, “Sadly, Niece took her own life after a long battle with mental health issues.”

The model was discovered in her home in Houston, Texas after law enforcement completed a welfare check requested by a “concerned family member” last month, TMZ reported.

“She was very open with her followers about her struggles, even wanting to help followers who also suffered,” her family told the outlet.

They added that Waidhofer was “more than her struggles.”

“She was beautiful and kind, sensitive and funny, creative and talented, generous and compassionate, thoughtful and challenging,” her family shared.

From the local ABC channel website:

Mississippi is one of 13 states with what’s known as a trigger law. That means with Friday’s decision from the Supreme Court overturning Roe v. Wade, abortion access is almost immediately banned across the state.

Mississippi put its version of a trigger law on the books in 2007 with a bill authored by Sen. Joey Fillingane. It’s not an automatic. It includes a certification step from the Attorney General within 10 days of the court’s decision.

“It’s no decision making authority involved in that certification process, it’s just a legality,” explained Sen. Fillingane. “She would have a period to certify that, in fact, the opinion has been issued, that it is been filed in the court clerk’s office, and that is now the law of the land.”

Fillingane says it was a backstop to avoid rushing back for a vote if the court ruled down the road.

“The idea is that we’re only in session 90 days out of the year, typically the first quarter of the year,” he explained. “And typically, the Supreme Court decisions of this magnitude are typically handed down, and the end of June… we wouldn’t be in session again for another half a year.”

There are two exceptions in that law, rape when there’s a formal charge and protection of the life of the mother. But…

“There won’t be a place for anybody to say, ‘Oh, I’m going to use the exception to go down to the clinic,’” said Fillingane, when referencing the rape exception in particular. “The clinic is not going to be there.”

“What that means for Mississippians is the nearest clinic outside of Florida if you are over 15 weeks means that you will have to travel the closest clinic will be in Granite City, Illinois,” said Michelle Colon, Executive Director and Co-Founder of SHERo Mississippi. “That is a city or suburb on the other side of the line of St. Louis.”

Groups like SHERo Mississippi are working on organizing the resources necessary for reaching those out of state locations.

I just don’t even know what to say.

This right here. I swear to god so many adult humans who should be at least somewhat educated on human biology have no clue how babies are made beyond sexual contact. Nothing about women’s biology, what it takes a body to recover from pregnancy, hell I would bet a fair number of right wing women even have a clue about their own bodies.

Men’s bodies and their functions never seem to require laws about their medical care, ever. This is about punishment, control and hatred of women for just existing and I am so fucking tired of it I could scream. This has been going on the entire 62 years of my existence and it’s heartbreaking and exhausting. No wonder we’re all just barely crawling along. The country is a mess and as a result many, many lives are too. And it’s this half assed, sadisticly conservative bullshit that’s the cause. We are going to have to fight back harder than they do or we’re done as a country. United States? Since when? We haven’t been United maybe even ever, I am too exhausted, anxious and scared to death to dig much deeper right now. I just want a few days without something to cry nonstop about. Fuck.

I base my comments on ectopic pregnancies on the one my wife had in the early 80’s.
She thought she had indigestion at 11pm. Couldn’t sleep. Pain at midnight, bad enough to call an ambulance. Ambulance to hospital by 12:45, and she went straight to the operating room where Dr. Ed Zabrek saved her life over the next 4 hours.
A lot of women, even wealthy conservative women, are going to die because the doctors will be legally prevented from that lifesaving surgery.

You might recall that the R’s in one state, I can’t remember which one, had written the law so that it would be required to “reimplant” a fetus in another human’s uterus.

That is not possible.
Not a bit possible with modern medical knowledge.
Not. Possible.

This is the level of understanding that Republicans have, males and even females alike (What, you think MTG, Boebert or even Collins are knowledgeable feminists? Pull the other one…)

Donate to Democratic candidates, volunteer to work for Democratic and voter registration campaigns, and vote, and encourage others to vote. If you live in a blue state, lobby your representatives to pass legislation to protect reproductive rights.

re: #75 jaunte

I base my comments on ectopic pregnancies on the one my wife had in the early 80’s.
She thought she had indigestion at 11pm. Couldn’t sleep. Pain at midnight, bad enough to call an ambulance. Ambulance to hospital by 12:45, and she went straight to the operating room where Dr. Ed Zabrek saved her life over the next 4 hours.
A lot of women, even wealthy conservative women, are going to die because the doctors will be legally prevented from that lifesaving surgery.

Savita’s death changed Ireland. Maybe it will take such deaths to change some voter minds.

re: #85 Sherlock Hound

You might recall that the R’s in one state, I can’t remember which one, had written the law so that it would be required to “reimplant” a fetus in another human’s uterus.

That is not possible.
Not a bit possible with modern medical knowledge.
Not. Possible.

This is the level of understanding that Republicans have, males and even females alike (What, you think MTG, Boebert or even Collins are knowledgeable feminists? Pull the other one…)

(I sarcastically suggested that unwanted fetuses be implanted in the rectums of Republican lawmakers. Plenty of room there. And much laughs in the cloak rooms.)

That would be Ohio.

After all , they are the court

The decision says there is no constitutional right to abortion. That just means that states (and the federal government, for that matter) will no longer have abortion restrictions struck down in court on the basis that the Constitution guarantees abortion access. In effect, it throws the question of abortion to the legislatures, state and federal.

A federal statute requiring states to allow abortions would be unaffected. Unless states found a basis, presumably a constitutional basis, why such a statute was improper and got a federal court to strike it down.

well, that’s not surprising if 2 out of every 100 pregnancies are ectopic, that would skew the apparent occurrence rate for IUD pregnanicies, since IUDs generally prevent implantation in the uterus but would have no impact on fallopian tubes.

re: #139 Orange Impostor

Fifty years from now, the Roberts Supreme Court will be widely viewed as the worst seated court in American history, even more so than the Roger Taney court that handed down Dred Scott. The reason for this is that Dred Scott merely denied a group of people Constitutional protections, while overturning of the Roe v Wade decision actively removed established Constitutional rights to over half of the American people.

However, this is dependent on whether the fascists actually succeed in taking over the country, because if that happens, then there won’t be any historical review.

imo medical autonomy is a human right not merely a constitutional one

anymore than the 14th gave certain people something they didnt inherently have before

these rights didnt just pop into existence because a court said so.

its perverse to say people werent people until a constitutional process said so

what the courts did was to stop local, state, and the federal governments and agents of the governments, and police, and businesses etc from stomping on peoples natural rights and suppressing their free exercise

black people always were people and they were always intrinsically ‘free’. they werent allowed to act free. the constitution didnt give them humanity. it prevented others from trampling on theirs.

and now they are doing it again with medical decisions.

theyre using the power of ‘state’ enforcement to prevent people from exercising their rights. they most certainly are not ‘taking their rights away’

this is not just rhetoric or semantics.
- owning a gun is not a natural right - no matter what some people believe

re: #134 Dr Lizardo

They’d have to try to argue against the Supremacy Clause. Not that I wouldn’t put that past them, mind you.

I get your point, but the Supremacy Clause just says federal law trumps state law. It doesn’t provide an authority for federal law to regulate anything Congress wants it to. The usual route to such authority is the Interstate Commerce Clause, but that would be a real stretch—not that it hasn’t been stretched awfully far before.

At it’s core, this is the nature of the problem. A highly-motivated minority of fundamentalist Christian evangelicals are determined to impose their sectarian doctrines on the whole of society, and they most likely sincerely believe they’re doing the Lord’s work by doing so.

But we, as a society, are generally reluctant to call them out on this, especially given the long-standing American tradition of respecting people’s faith (“attend the church of your choice”, if you remember that old slogan) and their beliefs. But we’ve long since crossed a threshold in which pushback is going to be required….and I have little doubt that such pushback will cause endless screeching about how they’re being oppressed, no doubt because they genuinely believe that them not being able to impose their narrow sectarian values on everyone else constitutes oppression.

Today’s ruling is actually a nail in Trump’s coffin amongst the MAGA faithful.

For a lot of Republicans, Trump’s main value was being their vessel in order to have this very day come true for them. Now that Roe v Wade is by corrupt Judicial edict not a thing anymore, Trump’s usefulness has greatly been diminished. Look for a very public Republican movement away from Trump towards DeSantis in the next few days and weeks and a more and more unhinged TFG.

DeSantis is the next stage in the quest by fascists towards a totalitarian state. DeSantis is the more dedicated nuts and bolts dictator they now seek after the kick the doors down clown show provided by their stooge Trump.

Merrick Garland Says States Can’t Ban Abortion Pills

Attorney General Merrick Garland said, in the wake of the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade, “that states cannot ban mifepristone, a medication that is used to bring about an abortion, based on disagreement with the federal government on its safety and efficacy,” Axios reports.

According to the Washington Post, Garland also signaled the Justice Department “is preparing for legal battles on a host of related issues — from women traveling to states where the procedures are legal, to accessing pills that can induce abortions.”

“At least 38 states have introduced fetal homicide laws that were intended to be used against violent attacks by third parties like abusive male partners. But in South Carolina, only one case has been brought against a man for assaulting a pregnant woman, while up to 300 women have been arrested under the law, according to the National Advocates for Pregnant Women.”

This is amazing. And I’m so glad that I am a regular customer of Dick’s. I will continue to give them my business and go out of way to do so.

other super-woke things they’re done:

1. after Sandy Hook, they removed assault weapons from their big-box stores. After Parkland, they removed them from their hunting & fishing specialty shops, destroyed $5 million worth. (because sales increased at those stores after this move, they’ve since removed ALL guns and ammo from a bunch of their stores. As they sell out in the stores that still have it, they’re not reordering.)

2. When a 9-year-old girl wrote to the CEO to complain that the catalog only had boy models… they apologized, changed the catalog to be half girls, and sponsored a bunch of girls’ basketball teams.

But I am reminded that when Hillary made abortion point-blank part of her statement at one of the “debates” with Trump that her statement didn’t seem to generate the political heat she may have hoped.

It all sort of died quickly in the media, because Trump is a good showman and knew his obscene carnival is what sells tickets.

This is going to be difficult going forward. If the Dems get more than 52 Senators they can try to go with a national law legalizing abortion, getting rid of the easy filibuster. Assuming the Dems hold the House and Presidency.

I don’t have a very clear crystal ball. Wish I did, but I don’t.

Trump lies about everything and cares nothing about morality or abortion. The reasons he is so loved among white evangelicals are his racism and his appointment of McConnell approved judges who gave them the repeal of Roe. Any Republican would have done that but some of them truly are anti-choice. Of course that is irrelevant: he will do whatever the evangelicals want because he literally does NOT care about anyone or anything other than his personal power and wealth.

Supporters of proposals offering protections around data that could provide information about people seeking abortions are pushing for swift action after the Supreme Court’s Friday decision to overturn Roe v. Wade.

As Democrats weigh responses to the 6-3 court decision that will trigger abortion bans in 13 states, and likely lead to severe restrictions in others, supporters of key data privacy proposals said it is urgent to ensure Americans’ location, search and call data isn’t used to target people seeking abortion care.

“We need to make sure that we in Congress are doing everything we can to protect people’s most sensitive and personal data, their reproductive and sexual health data, so that it can’t be used against them, especially in the states that are going to be criminalizing abortion,” said Rep. Sara Jacobs (D-Calif.), the lead House sponsor of a bill aimed at protecting reproductive health data.

Without additional protections, users’ location, search and calling data can be easily accessed and shared with law enforcement in ways that could be used to target people seeking abortions, especially in states that ban or severely restrict abortion access.

Such information could also be accessed and published by right-wing hackers, said Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) senior staff technologist Bill Budington.

“Overturning the right to an abortion…”

i get it, i really do
whether it’s a right, or overturned or natural or constitutional, the much bigger question is what’s gonna reach and move people

- the horrors of every type of pregnancy gone wrong?
- 12 year olds raped and impregnated by church-going family members?
- abusive spouse stories?
- their ‘concern’ for the ‘pre-born’ but not the born…

maybe this argument should be made more widespread and inclusive.
not whether to birth a baby or not.

frame it around bodily integrity and everyone’s right to legally own their own selves.
make their own medical decisions.
everyone can relate to that, right?
if they can do it with abortion, they can do it with X….

what about “in the case of pregnancy there are two persons”?
no there arent.
and still, no need to go there to get most people to understand what this means:
- loss of personal control of your own self.

The technology industry is bracing for the uncomfortable possibility of having to hand over pregnancy-related data to law enforcement, in the wake of the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision on Friday to overturn the Roe v. Wade precedent that for decades guaranteed a woman’s constitutional right to an abortion.

As state laws limiting abortion kick in after the ruling, technology trade representatives told Reuters they fear police will obtain warrants for customers’ search history, geolocation and other information indicating plans to terminate a pregnancy. Prosecutors could access the same via a subpoena, too.

The concern reflects how the data collection practices of companies like Alphabet Inc’s (GOOGL.O) Google, Facebook parent Meta Platforms Inc (META.O) and amazon.com Inc (AMZN.O) have the potential to incriminate abortion-seekers for state laws that many in Silicon Valley oppose.

“It is very likely that there’s going to be requests made to those tech companies for information related to search histories, to websites visited,” said Cynthia Conti-Cook, a technology fellow at the Ford Foundation.

We had agreed to not talk politics because she went from being a liberal in favor of gay and women’s rights when I first knew her to making the abolition of abortion her number one issue. Out of nowhere she announced that she voted for Trump. I blurted out, “are you fucking kidding me?” No, she said, he was the best chance she had ever seen for overturning Roe. We remained civil of course for the rest of the weekend, but I haven’t spoken to her since. I doubt she cares. I mean, she went from being proud of her alma mater, Notre Dame, to condemning it because of it’s liberal professors within a few years. (The reason she was in our area was because her niece was about to say goodbye to the secular world to enter the life of a nun somewhere in Massachusetts.)

A few hundred thousand people or bots making random “chaff” inquiries would make their jobs a bit less rewarding. Wouldn’t help Google’s marketing, either.

This dire warning was sent out just 7 weeks before the Berlin wall fell.
I used to get the Christian Anti-Communism Crusade’s newsletter. This was in the early 80s when they operated from Australia. It was a pretty good window into the mindset of right wing religion in general. You could look at it and see our present predicament coming.
There were some subtle indications that it was influenced by, if not fronting for, the anti-communist China Lobby, still headed at the time by Madame Chiang Kai-shek, with Anna Chennault as probably the number 2 figure. It was Chennault who helped the Nixon campaign subvert the 1968 election by acting as an intermediary between Nixon and Thieu regime in South Vietnam. They convinced Thieu that he would get a better deal later if he helped Nixon get elected by sabotaging the ongoing peace talks (thereby denying the Johnson administration credit for a peace deal.) The war went on for another seven years, with not thousands but millions more casualties.

aatharuv  Jun 24, 2022 • 3:49:35pm

We can mourn for a day. Then, it’s time for cold, focused anger and actions.

Lobbying the federal government to open up abortion clinics on Federal lands in every state with abortion restrictions that are effectively a ban. If that gets implemented and pisses off some of the reich wing states enough to make it more likely that they try to seceed, even better.

Supporting all groups doing good messaging… assuming they want to put out hard hitting videos to support Women’s right to make their own decisions on healthcare. (I note the Lincoln Project hasn’t put out any videos yet, unsurprisingly. But they’re focused on destroying Trumpism, which is still good.)

Obscuring pregnancies.

Mass buying of pregnancy tests is a good idea by all women or all who could get pregnant. Even by those who are pregnant. Because those who could get pregnant will need to test every month, and everyone else needs to provide cover for them. Not everyone has money for them though. Are there other legitimate uses of neo-natal vitamins other than by pregnant people and new mothers? (Okay, this is certainly not enough — there are other items for which cover buying is useful. I’m thinking off the top of my head as a father of a 1.5 year old).

Buying things in cold hard cash without using credit cards or loyalty cards. People can data mine and figure out that people are pregnant based on their purchases. There’s safety in numbers. And the police state isn’t yet taking photos of everyone who buys something for use in prosecution.

Deleting any period tracker apps. Or installing any period tracker apps that can guarantee they have their data in a foreign jurisdiction.

(Edit: This list is woefully incomplete. But it’s a start.)

GETTING OUT THE VOTE. Vote for the most progressive Democrat who can win 52% of the vote or maybe 55% to be safe. We need to have a large enough margin to win over Republican shenanigans on election day, during registration, while challenging ballots, etc..

From a street view my two cents is the GOP and their thugs no longer fear the American people.
They have the cops and courts in their pocket and will beat and shoot you worse than ever seen.
Does America have the stomach?
Does the Democratic Party have the will and resources to fight back?
I heard the Democrats have a majority.
Christ.
Thank god.
Imagine if they didn’t.
They just witnessed over a million Americans die from a pandemic as they attacked people who masked and cared.
And video after video of black folk shot as white folk who did the same fucking thing were brought in.
And Trump still raises money and holds power.

Some House Republicans who oppose abortion rights are pushing legislation to implement a nationwide abortion ban at 15 weeks, coming just hours after the Supreme Court released its opinion overturning Roe v. Wade,” CNN reports.

“The legislation appears unlikely to advance in the Senate in the near future — due in part to the 60 votes needed to overcome a filibuster. Still, the early discussions represent the excitement energizing opponents of abortion rights, eager to capitalize on Friday’s victory.

Here’s how to keep it alive

hi

I’m only here briefly. I have stayed away due to all the claims levelled at me (I’m sure you “feel” persecuted as an atheist, denying my lived experience of actual persecution).

Trillions of pixels have been spilled over the idea that the rulings against Roe and Casey are meant to control women.

That’s true as far as it goes, but as three hundred years of conservative thinkers from Edmond Burke forward, and billions of trees worth of conservative apologia books have noted, conservatism only has one goal. Power. That’s it. This doesn’t end with women (as noted in Thomas’s opinion that the court needs to revisit such cases as Lawrence and Obergefell).

The Libertarian Party is no different, as their monarchist wing, the Von Mises Institute, have taken over the national caucus this month.

The bullshyte proposed in Ohio about “re-implanting” ectopic pregnancies, and all the hot takes that conservatives don’t understand human anatomy miss the point. Maybe some don’t understand, but the majority are quite happy to use a lie if that’s what it takes to grasp more power. They don’t care about the truth, they care about power.

I am under no illusions that the Fascist Party is not going to come after me as an atheist. The National Christians (Nat-Cs) want me dead. I know this. They get cover from Radical Centrists.

As of now, Nebraska remains a place out-of-state Democrats ignore, and a place where in-state Democrats fought off an abortion ban in a special legislative session several months ago. We remain a Red state where abortion access is legal though the second trimester.

Our state’s First Lady Suzanne Shore has endorsed the Democratic candidate for the special election in NE-1, state senator Patty Pansing-Brooks. Outside of Nebraska, I imagine Democrats haven’t heard of either of these women. My wingnut governor’s own wife endorsed the Democratic candidate.

Polling is thin in Nebraska (again because we mostly get ignored), but the race in NE-1 seems too close to call at the moment. It is not enough to hold on to Blue states, Democrats have to quit ignoring the Red states which have not yet stripped rights.. Don Bacon in NE-2 has a real chance of being turfed out in the General Election.

secure.actblue.com (Ms. Pansing-Brooks Act Blue account for her election to Congress).

The election is on June 28.
en.wikipedia.org

Even in my uber-conservative district of NE-3 (further right than Wyoming), right now there is a massive protest going on in Scottsbluff.

Conservatism is fundamentally antithetical to democracy and rights (Burke himself said so). As conservatives further gather power, they will strip rights in the reverse order they were acknowledged. Women might be first, but they assuredly won’t be last.

He’s not stupid, and knows that they’ve created a massive backlash by not whittling away at rights slowly enough to move public opinion. They pointed a blowtorch at the frog instead of boiling it.

Chief Justice John Roberts doesn’t agree with overturning abortion rights — but don’t look for his name among the dissenters.

In a mealy-mouthed concurrence, he bemoans that the Court didn’t just nix the viability line, but went all the way on abortion rights. Not because he disagrees with the content of the decision — he calls it “thoughtful and thorough” — but because, he says, demolishing Roe is unnecessary to decide the case centered on a 15-week abortion ban out of Mississippi.

“Here, there is a clear path to deciding this case correctly without overruling Roe all the way down to the studs: recognize that the viability line must be discarded, as the majority rightly does, and leave for another day whether to reject any right to an abortion at all,” he writes.

Roberts’ preference is clear: get rid of the viability line, which he spends many paragraphs attacking. Then, perhaps when a little time has passed, curtail abortion in some other ways.

Conservatism is fundamentally antithetical to democracy and rights (Burke himself said so). As conservatives further gather power, they will strip rights in the reverse order they were acknowledged. Women might be first, but they assuredly won’t be last.

For sure the Burke types are aiming at undoing modernity.

It’s a long battle.

The bit of good news that came out a few weeks back, about belief in a “god” in the US has dropped to 81%, is that the changes in the young people are real.

The religious right hopes that as young people today age they will turn towards the religious right.

But I doubt that will happen in masses.

I still remain hopeful that the religious right will be dragged down in the ever widening sink hole which Trump helped to enlarge significantly.

just looked at the new stuff coming to netflix and my reaction is still “I’m not paying 10 bucks for this shit.” They really need to get it together. For 10 bucks, HBOMax is giving me enormously better quality. I’m paying Apple 5 bucks, and they’ve given me a couple pretty decent tom hanks flicks and a couple of the better sf/space opera series I’ve seen in a long while.

re: #135 Belafon

A lawsuit has been filed by a Jewish group, I think a synagogue, stating exactly that.

In Florida.

You are going to see the anti-Semitism of Christians come to full force in the courts on why Jews don’t have such a religious right.

Did a pot of rice with sliced carrot, sliced kielbasa, and a tablespoon of butter for supper. Nom.

I’ll try. Thanks!

re: #452 Backwoods_Sleuth

Roberts reputation is toast.

And quite deservedly. Even on the offhand chance that he might have some qualms about how any particular decision is “reasoned” (if that word can even be applied to the ideological hackery the SC’s Radicals seem determined to inflict on the country), he’s still going to be in the minority (CJ status is meaningless in this instance), the balance of power on SCOTUS has shifted to the Fuckhead Five. And will stay there until the next change of personnel.

re: #447 Love-Child of Cassandra and Sisyphus

It’s true that purity ponies are annoying. It also remains true that “WTF was Pelosi doing by supporting Cuellar in his primary?” is a fair question.
