    This is so scary. I use the pill but not to prevent pregnancies but to regulate my incredibly painful, debilitating, incapacitating menstrual cramps. Aside from strong narcotics (Demerol, Toradol) that will destroy my kidneys eventually if I continue taking them, they are the only thing that actually work. I get them with my private insurance. People forget (mostly male senators, really) that the pill its not only used to prevent pregnancies.

    I don't know in my opinion I feel that they're standing up for the right of life liberty and the pursuit of happiness for the unborn child Now Banning plan B maybe not the smartest thing

    abortion is wrong. How can you be a progressive and then deny a voice for those who need their mother most

    Let's be fair: the question was not whether abortions should be allowed at the moment of birth, but whether abortions should be allowed UP UNTIL the moment of birth, meaning late pregnancy abortions. I know Sam has a misplaced grudge against Bernie, but that's no reason to distort what he said.

    If pollution can cause an abortion, can we also prosecute any politician who doesn't support environmentally friendly legislation? If we push this issue, either we get women's rights or a cleaner environment. One out of two, right? :D

    Old white men who haven't even taken basic anatomy or sexed telling women what to do with their bodies. You'd think it was almost a joke. If men could get pregnant, there would be abortion clinics at every corner. I would bet my retirement that Trump's mistresses have had countless abortions

      Looks like you need the anatomy lesson. An unborn child isn't part of your body.. He/she is an individual human being.

      Getting a tattoo is doing something with your body. Killing an unborn child is doing something with the body of another human being.

    If an unborn baby is not a human being? What is it-a dog, a dolphin, a cat or a green bean?
    It has 100% human DNA (with a unique combination of information that came from both father and mother), and humans only produce humans, so the unborn baby can’t be anything other than a human!

    • Ciel One Hell of A Service Dog

      Because an abortion happening right up before birth doesnt happen. It implies the fetus is viable to be born into a baby. When that isnt the case for abortions after 24 weeks..

    She said it herself that the pill can prevent implantation. THAT is why many pro-lifers consider it an abortion. If life begins at fertilization and the newly conceived zygote can't implant, it will be miscarried/aborted.

  • Three Jewels
    Three Jewels 5 months ago +1

    Fun Fact: Doctors actually have to wait until 5 weeks of gestation to be able to pick up a fetus on ultrasound to determine the position of the fetus. So, if someone chooses a procedure instead of a medicinal abortion, there is literally a week of time they can make that happen. I'll bet in a lot of these 6-week states, there are waiting periods or women have to travel many miles to get to the closest clinic. It's ridiculous.

    I can't believe that they know so little about reproduction that they think the contraceptive pill is an abortion pill! Sort your education system out!! Also, I know we laugh about Trump's ignorance, but talking about abortion like homicide after birth is not just stupidity, it's willful lying, and desire to spread misinformation

    • Ciel One Hell of A Service Dog
      Ciel One Hell of A Service Dog 5 months ago

      @Mathilde Young u cant be a human being without having personhood...prior to that it is a clumb of cells or parasitic thing. And it is a parasite on the mom's body, by actual biological defintion it is a parasitic relationship with the mammal female. Honestly you seem to attribute the same things a 25week fetus has with a 6-12 week fetus...which isnt even that old cause like the video says it can include 5 weeks of time where conception didnt even happen yet.

    • Mathilde Young
      Mathilde Young 5 months ago

      Way more misinformation comes from the pro-abortion side - e.g. "clump of cells", "tissue", "parasite", "my body", "choice" - anything to avoid addressing what they really support - the killing of human beings that have done nothing wrong.

    The people championing these outrageous anti-abortion laws are nothing less than an extreme threat to basic human rights in the United States. This isn't about saving lives or Christian beliefs or morality, it is ALL about the desire to control women & their bodies. The politicians pushing for these should be removed from office and punished as direct threats to the basic safety of American women.

    • Ciel One Hell of A Service Dog

      Abortion is a threat to human rights. After all, unborn children are human beings (sorry, I'm sure YOU knew this, but some people don't - can you believe that? )

    Stop the war on women and hold the men accountable. Castration/vasectomies for every man, no spermies, no pregnancies. There is the cure right there. If you are planning to have a family later (yeah, right) then have your boys frozen. Women will not be controlled by anybody. Nobody! It's too bad that we have lawmakers without high school educations and certainly not reproductive health education. Decisions can not be made with out education. Let's have an "MCAS" for congress. If they fail the test they will not be allowed to proceed/qualify for a governing office position over the American people.

    Trump’s “soft voice” when lying about so-called late-term abortions just makes my skin crawl. He’s unhinged. That rhetoric is dangerous. Sorry, “Trump’s rhetoric is dangerous” is right up there with “water is wet” in terms of obviousness, isn’t it?

  • Damn Phone

    The truly horrific thing is, by banning both birth control and abortion, these false Christians will cause millions of unwanted children to be born - and will then completely refuse any responsibility to them like they do now. This will lead to massive increases in poverty and child abuse. Republicans are not for God they are 100% against goodness.

  • Damn Phone

    Christian conservatives simply don't understand separation of church and state. To them the country is one big church. I don't think they should be allowed to lead, or vote, until they conform to our standards as a secular nation.

      you have no idea what that law is doing, right? because i would think 'lowering the threshold in emergencies from three doctors agreeing you're gonna die to one' is actually pretty reasonable. as is giving parents the option of how they want to deliver their terminal child instead of the previous law which required a d&c because you fucknuggets liked the idea of chopping up the fetuses of grieving parents.

    Love her & her team! No man/men should have any opinion or power over our female bodies. It's our decision. Period. Perhaps we should punch these senator guys in the gut for hrs and keep giving them babies to take care of, so they know what unwanted pregnancy feels like. Just a small taste anyways, while we ring a bell and say "shame". We should just make a (female/LGBTQ/ male) government with no bipartisan system that accepts and appreciates all people 's unique differences, and over throw this current one. One Nation, One people, One greater good. Period. Not all this squabbling. Chosen not just through votes, but education of the knowledge they represent first, then votes from the people.

    Miscarriage is so common we have entire cultural practice around when it’s relatively safe to announce a pregnancy. Most couples wait until after the first trimester to share their pregnancy, beyond the people they are closest to, because of how common it is.
    If you know anything about reproductive biology, you know it take many mechanisms going right in the first stages of development. Things often do go wrong and the body terminates the pregnancy. Most women who have been pregnant three or more times have experienced at least one miscarriage.

      @Quel You should tell your fellows that, because there are women in the US who have been investigated and jailed for miscarriages, including a suicidal women who attempted suicide and failed, but miscarried. That's reprehensible.

    • Zuma Zuma
      Zuma Zuma 5 months ago

      well, actually, neither men nor women have a choice in that matter: if you don't give your child up, you have to support it. what they should have a choice in, though, is whether they want to keep the fetus for 9 months inside of them, feeding off their blood, getting a bunch of health problems and risks, and then pushing them out in pain. And both men and women should have a choice about that. Of course, never comes to that for men, but nobody's taking away the choice.

    Republicans are materialistic hypocrites and liars. This is a public health, financial and legal issue. Unwanted pregnancies are disabilities and liabilities for women.
