Texas “Turn em in” law
« on: September 03, 2021, 12:03:01 PM »
Wonder how that will work. Are they setting up an anonymous hot line? Just call in a persons name? “ Hi, I think Jane Doe is pregnant and looking for an abortion……I think John Doe is supplying funds to Mary Smith for an abortion?

Seems simple enough to wreck that idea in about 4 hours. Start turning in all the reps’ wives, daughters, sisters, mothers,  grandmothers as being pregnant, then start on all the reps and their sons, brothers, father as accessories. Hell they could blow that place apart in a couple hours. And if the “special police” have to investigate each call…..well good fuckin luck with that.

How do we report people having an abortion/aiding someone with an abortion. Maybe we can have a call to action that spam-reports the dipshit politicians and policymakers that brought this to fruition.

Help enforce the Texas Heartbeat Act.

A conservative group has a hotline set up to report those who violate the new Texas law.  And it has already been swamped with people screwing with that system.

This law reminds me of the slavery era--people got bounties for returning runaway slaves.

Tl;dr; Other than expanding the Supreme Court to prevent this, Democrats have had since 1978 to passive Legislative law protecting Roe v. Wade (as it stood it only set a precedent) whenever they have held the majority + presidency.

But what would be the advantage of doing that, when it is such a good thing to get votes off of?

Of course, Biden campaigned on a promise to pass such a federal law — and the good news is that he and his Democratic colleagues in Congress remain in a position to actually make that happen. There is already legislation introduced in Congress to do this. It is called the Women’s Health Protection Act, it already has 48 sponsors in the Senate, and its core precepts are wildly popular according to survey data.

And yet as Republican legislators in states across the country have been passing laws to try to restrict abortion, Democrats didn’t even introduce the latest version of this bill until June, even though there have been versions of it going back to at least 2013. And then, after Democrats finally introduced it again, the legislation has been languishing in a committee — all while Democrats have been raising money off their promises to protect a woman’s right to choose.

This bill doesn’t have to sit in a committee. Democrats can pass it — not next week, not next month, but today. Right now. And they could seek help from Republican senators Lisa Murkowski of Alaska and Susan Collins of Maine, who have both said they support Roe and who have both humiliated themselves by previously insisting that the Republican Supreme Court nominees they’ve approved would not overturn Roe.

I decided long ago that solving problems, especially controversial ones left nothing for Democrats to make empty campaign promises about.  The best thing that ever happened for the Democratic Party is the Republican Party.

So a 12 year old kid can't be forced to wear a mask, but she CAN be forced to give birth.

I don't see the problem here. *shrug*

They probably see pregnancy, giving birth and the life time responsibility of a child as the punishment for sex. I'm serious. Their 'logic' works this way as far as I understand. Your age doesn't matter. If you are old enough to get pregnant... There!

But only if you're a woman, of course.  Men have nothing to do with this.

If they coupled this law with additional laws for a DNA registry to identify and hold equally responsible the father, as well as ensure health care, child care, and the other necessities of raising a child, and have a properly funded education system that wasn't beholden to a small panel of anti-science christofascists, it might be very slightly less the self-righteous sexist bullshit that it is.
