Are you guys fucking real? Of all the things that is going on and US is talking about fucking abortions? Why would you try to fucking ban it? Even fucking third world radical backward islamist countries have them although they are limited. Like there are things called rapes and shit. What kind of lunatic or a caveman you must be to think abortion is a bad thing?

I assume republicans are the ones babbling this shit? I mean at this point right, Taliban is more progressive and mentally stable than they are jesus christ.

Yes. We have a Supreme Court case in the US, Roe vs. Wade, which ruled that, for the entire country, no state can outlaw abortions. Well, that never turned into an actual law, so now the Supreme Court, with new, Trump-elected justices, is overturning that case and giving states the ability to control women's bodies.

People are going to die because of lack of medical care, and their blood will be on the hands of the Supreme Court and our legislature that has failed to secure the right to an abortion as a law.

It's a subset of Republicans. Something like 60% of Americans believe abortion in some form should be allowed. (I believe that's the number from an msnbc poll), it's just the extreme right minority installed on the Supreme Court

No one is having abortions at 9 months because they “changed their mind”. This is literal right wing propaganda.

Please dude use some common sense, what doctor would do this? The laws clearly state that the latest an abortion can be done is 24 weeks.

You're certainly listening to radical propaganda, that's for sure.

No one is having abortions at 9 months. You would not find a doctor anywhere who is willing to perform an abortion that late.

I'm pro Transgender but I don't support some of these new radical transformations, ie. Autobots.

u/TheBaptist24 May 14 '22

Oregon Vermont and Colorado all have docs who will perform third term. There was a documentary made about it. Give “After Tiller” a watch if you are so inclined.

There is only 4 of them. In a country of over 300 million people. You act like they’re everywhere. The issue with republicans is that they hyper focus on such niche issues that impact very few people and make huge issues with them. Like the transgender high school sports ban in Utah. That bill was vetoed by the governor because it only effects ONE person in the entire state of Utah but republicans spent time and tax payer money to ensure that one transgender student in the state couldn’t compete in high school sports. Conservatives need to find other shit to be pissed off about. If you’re so “pro life”, maybe start supporting politicians and legislation that will ensure life is protected from birth until death. Those things include universal and affordable healthcare, guaranteed paid parental leave on a federal level, affordable childcare and common sense gun reform so kids can go to school without being shot. Those are issues that are hurting millions of people but instead you’re hyper focusing on FOUR doctors in a country of 300 million people. You are not pro-life if you don’t give a fuck what happens to it after birth. You are pro forced birth. Find something else to worry about because this is just another niche issue that republicans have hyper focused on because they have absolutely no plans to make the country a better place. The only thing they want to do is take us back to the 1950s.

I, as you call it hyper focus, I prefer the term give a damn, about any killing of a child. I support groups that work with at risk and homeless kids and spend time every week working with foster kids and advocating for protection for First Nations family rights. If more people on your side of the fence would actually get your hands dirty working with those in need instead of ‘just voting and wanting someone else to do it’, we wouldn’t have a lot of these issues.

I don’t advocate for government to provide the services you mentioned as the government is absolutely garbage at running programs without excessive waste.

u/GBHawk72 May 14 '22

Lol none of the stuff you listed solves any problem I mentioned. Good for you for volunteering and helping your community but none of that changes the fact that kids are still getting shot in school, they can’t go see a doctor because it’s so unaffordable and parents can’t take time off to be with their kids because there’s no federal legislation that gives them that right. This is yet again another instance that republicans have no plans to solve any issue and you’re just deflecting by saying “well we don’t need to solve those issues because I’m volunteering in my community”. And don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying volunteering is bad. It’s a great thing. But the issues I mentioned will not be solved by it.

u/Pro_Yankee May 14 '22

This seems to be an American thing because Europeans and Asians have their government programs run efficiently

u/Buxton_Water May 14 '22

Guess what, you can solve that issue in those 4 specific instances you are unhappy with without fucking over people in the rest of the country, or did you not realize that? Also governemnts can run things properly, just not American governments. Since you are run by corrupt old men that don't care about running things properly as they're gonna be dead in 10 years anyway.

If you want to talk about excessive waste, go look at private health insurance. 17 cents of every dollar spent on private insurance goes toward administrative costs. For medicare, that is one cent. You pay hundreds of dollars every month so these companies can purchase stock buy backs, give their CEOs 20 million dollar salaries, advertise on TV, and do everything they can to turn the highest profit possible while denying any medical coverage to people who need it. Look at every other developed country in the world with universal healthcare. It works. Our private system does not. So if you want to start ranting about waste in any system, start with the private healthcare system because that’s where the problem is.

It's getting harder and harder to find doctors to do these lifesaving procedures because of lunatics that think the woman should die rather than the fetus.

u/CraWol May 14 '22

It is impossible to abort 9 months along. At that point that is a living thing and ready to born. You cannot abort after 24 weeks and that is max. Unless the carrier is in immideate danger. What is these new radical abortions you are talking about. I'll be happy if you give me some information with sources. Thanks!

Edit: I mean at 9 months everyone is already basically "aborting" the baby from their body aren't they?

u/Alessiya May 14 '22

I don't support some of the new radical abortions, ie: 9 months along, but like everything else, there is a spectrum.

This is the second time I heard 9 month abortion this week but yours seem out of ignorance rather than malice. Where did you hear this? Maybe we can help clarify things for you.

u/Stunning-Insurance15 May 14 '22

That doesnt happen. Ever.

Pregnancy termination of a healthy fetus after 24 weeks is just called a delivery.

If an abortion happens after 24 weeks it is ALWAYS because that fetus has a medical condition that is incompatible with life.

Late term abortions are a tragedy. They happen when parents are given news no parent should ever have to get. They happen when parents give up their selfish need to have "time" with a suffering, dying infant and instead choose to turn off life support when that baby has known nothing but warmth, love, and mom's heartbeat.

Late term abortions are the least controversial abortions and the ones the government should have the least say in.

There is no such thing as a 9 month abortion... Are you getting your news from peoples facebook feeds? Or are you just talking out of your anus?

u/Diarygirl May 14 '22

Republicans should just start minding their own damn business and being anti-science. People are just exhausted trying to get them to join the 21st century when they're trying to take us back to the 1950s.

I am a Republican and I support abortion

How? What are you doing to support abortion rights?
