As the war on women intensifies in the United States, thank you John Boehner, there are 10 states specifically that people need to be aware of and not just a little nervous about. As Republicans believe eliminating Planned Parenthood and NPR will solve the country’s woes, (we all know that women’s health, prevention of STDs, prevention of unwanted pregnancies and educational radio are the Devil’s playground) I would like to call your attention to some of the most heinous anti-woman legislation. I want to preface this with the question: Are We Paying Attention? The GOP is not creating jobs or helping the disenfranchised. They are clearly focused on an agenda that hurts minorities and hurts women and will ultimately become a larger burden on the healthcare system. Now back to our original program, the most heinous anti-woman legislation.
Minnesota: Lawmakers there are considering requiring minors to get parental consent for any medical care, unless they get a judicial bypass proving they’re victims of incest. This legislation discourages minors from getting birth control, STD testing, pregnancy test and becomes a serious healthcare danger with costly repercussions.
Indiana: The state that loves misogyny, passed a bill requiring doctors to read scripted anti-choice propaganda to patients before the abortion.
Florida: Home to Rick (the P is silent) Scott, just introduced 18 separate bills restricting abortion rights.
Missouri: Always a heavy contender in the Misogyny Olympics, is trying to ban post-20 week abortions, even after hearing testimony indicating that most of these very rare abortions are performed for medical reasons–this is in direct conflict with the Supreme Court decision Roe v. Wade.
Kansas: Where Dr. Tiller was murdered in front of his church, (interesting way of protecting life) has passed the ban on post-22-week abortions and a law requiring both parents to sign off on a minor’s abortion, a law that unfairly punishes young women for having a negligent or imprisoned parent.
Idaho: Idaho is one of the many states that is using fake science claiming that fetuses at 20 weeks can feel pain in order to ban abortions after 20 weeks. This legislations does not take into account the health of the mother regardless and it also goes against the US Supreme Court decision of Roe V. Wade.
