What Life In Post-Roe America Will Be Like

“Last March, Republican frontrunner Donald Trump told MSNBC that if abortion is banned, “there has to be some form of punishment” for the woman. Anti-abortion groups protested that they had no intention of prosecuting women for having abortions under their desired ban — only doctors who allegedly victimize them. Trump eventually released a prepared statement to the same effect: “The doctor or any other person performing this illegal act upon a woman would be held legally responsible, not the woman.”

Patel’s case shows that the lines are not so clear. In the contemporary reality of illegal abortion, the woman and the provider are often one and the same. According to public health experts, a hundred thousand women have covertly tried to ended their pregnancies themselves in Texas alone, and legal abortion clinics closing across the country may make matters worse.”*

If we lived in a sane society, all people who work in an abortion mill and all selfish whores who have abortions would be executed

I know this isn't a popular subject, thank you for taking the time to cover it and thank you for asking what both men and women can do to protect what's really the most basic human right that is bodily autonomy

Who pays for a child that the state wont allow to be aborted?
Has anyone given consideration to the mental state of these pregnant women? Im pretty sure chosing to have an abortion is one of the hardest things a woman could do.
Can i predict another "rosa parks" monent is going to happen?

Not only do I think abortion should be illegal but we also need serious breeding laws in place to combat overpopulation. I am an atheist liberal.

Of course only 1 doctor should be involved with any woman and her decision to get an abortion. Women typically only see one gynecologist. Imagine having to go to not one, not two, but three different doctors to discuss this most personal decision. ESPECIALLY when needing three doctors its for third trimester abortions which are done for dire medical reasons. Carrying a dead or dying baby is bad enough, then you have to explain this awful situation to multiple strangers. These religious zealots can fck off.

The few trying to dictate to the many, back to back street abortions and kids forced to have children to rapists. This has been behind the GOP from the outset. Enough America, stand up and be counted!

I hope a bunch of Trumpanzee women die bleeding in their bathtubs after Bubba rapes them and they try to take out the future toothless child with a coat hanger. Seems like just desserts.

There are easy solutions to the ‘pro-life’ argument. Two people are involved, so if they want to force a woman to have a baby then they must also force the man to take part. My suggestion would be that, since the woman has to go through nine months of an increasingly burdensome physical process that usually results in lifelong effects, it is only fair that the baby be handed off to the man co-responsible (at any time suitable to the woman). Now, I know that some men will object that this is a hazard to their good reputation, but I… Read more »

We were faced with the terrible decision of a third trimester abortion we ended up delivering him and NOBODY from these "Catholic or Christian organizations" were supportive of the funeral or burial of the baby but our local Planned Parenthood and other Abortions groups were wonderful and so supportive they were so amazing! They gave us alot of advice, counseling still remain friends to this day! Very luck to have them!

I really don't like what the republicans are doing. But i have to admire the purity in action and conception. Unclouded by any conscience of right and wrong, absolute without any remorse, or delusions of morality, with an unlimited criminal energy completely focused to destroy, conquer and to divide for their goal to rule merciless with an iron fist. It would be really refreshing to have some dems who play the game like this right wing bastards.

3 trimester abortions ONLY take place if there is something wrong with the Mother,the Baby or both! You can't just walk in and say hey I want a 3rd trimester abortion! It pisses me off when people say otherwise!

there is a valid and used definition of "late term" in relation to pregnancy, it's the period between 41 weeks and 42 weeks of pregnancy, there is also Postterm pregnancy, which refers to a pregnancy that has reached or extended beyond 42 0/7 weeks of gestation from the last menstrual period.but I'm pretty sure that "pro-lifers" use "late term" to describe after the egg has been fertilised. this "debate" and I do use the term very liberally, goes back to "women are property" like land, is this "property" fallow / Barren or fertile ground. can I plant my seed here,… Read more »

My favorite abortion foe is the white male that preaches about small government and individual rights, while screaming about the abomination of safe, legal abortion access. And by favorite, I mean people that I want to choke with my bare hands.

Let's be honest,these new laws only effect ironically the middle class. You actually think these laws would effect or apply to the wealthy in these states? HA! The wealthy will continue unfazed to get whatever they want. Now as far as the poor, they often already can't afford an abortion especially since now one often has to travel to even find a clinic. Middle class getting hit again. I wonder when they will realize they have MUCH more in common with us poor folk than they will ever have with the ultra wealthy.

Welcome to Black Market medical services in Georgia and Alabama. There will be ex medical personnel performing not only abortions but other medical procedures to Georgia and Alabama women in plain looking Georgia and Alabama homes. These states will actually have to spend money trying to locate these illegal activities. There will be baby dumping. And this is the tip of that iceberg.

Most people still do not understand the true nature of modern day orthodox or fundamentalist religiosity: Their fight is not about abortion, not about fertilized eggs, embryos or fetuses – it is all about undoing female emancipation. Religiosity is the last bastion of misogyny. A sacred, sanctified misogyny: God wants it that women are inferior and subordinate to men. The advent of MODERN CONTRACEPTIVES was a turning point in human history. A revolution like hardly any other in human existence. Women (even many self-proclaimed feminists, sadly) seem to have forgotten this fact. Or they do not grasp it in its… Read more »

A victory of the religious right, who considers women as third class citizens/people. Why are they able to sway the populace? Because there is zero criticism of religion in the US. The MR is a sad proof for that. The disregard for women as equal human beings (not only among the right) is appalling. Anyone who really cares for women`s rights would fight for true secularism and a retreat of religion from the public realm, a ban of religious schools and home schooling (since both means brainwashing of young, vulnerable and impressable children). Instead, the so called left is putting… Read more »

There's a zygote and an adult in a burning building, but you can only choose to save one.

Of course you choose the adult, and the abortion argument should end there

Abortion is absolutely heartbreaking for women. We shouldn’t even be talking about this. These men don’t even care about fetuses. They just hate women. Perhaps because they fear us.
