    I'm ready to eat the rich, but we need to take this one step at a time. We have a fascist problem that needs to be taken care of before we start worrying about the liberal capitalists.

    I just listed 3. I could list more.
    You didn't. You listed reasons for her to drop out of the Democratic party itself at best, nothing that would necessitate her joining the opposing party.

    You're trying to defend comparing Idaho (Trump +30) to NC (Trump +1.3) by talking about Texas? Just tell me you never had any intention of defending what you wrote. This is like X state is Y State, and let me talk about Z State to tell you why my fears are justified.
    You mean the states that are all being ran by the same party and have been proven to be colluding at a national level? What's your lame-ass take on this then?

    https://www.nbcnews.com/politics/con...tion-rcna38301
    The author of the Freedom to Travel for Health Care Act, Sen. Catherine Cortez Masto of Nevada, requested consent to quickly pass the legislation but met resistance from Sen. James Lankford of Oklahoma, who objected on behalf of Republicans.
    The eight-page bill would make it unlawful for a person or a government official to prevent or punish traveling across state lines "to receive or provide reproductive health care that is legal in that State." It also would bar states from imposing laws that prohibit women from traveling to other states to get abortions.
    I even gave you a heads-up that this policy was not going to be isolated to Idaho, and your response was it couldn't because the population difference? As if these don't have Republican majorities or super-majorities. Fucking ignorance of the highest class right there. That's the REPUBLICAN PARTY blocking protections for interstate travel for abortions. At the National level. And just because I sincerely doubt you're aware of this, but Oklahoma is not Idaho. It's a different state entirely. Well, minus the politics.

    I wouldn't have thought you'd hold this opinion, but I applaud sticking to your principles!
    I applaud you for having a thought of your own for once instead of parroting talking points from Fox and Breitbart. Good for you! On my side, I would like to retract my statement as it's clear to me now that you were not posting in good faith. I expect you to defend Cotham's actions as well once she starts voting alongside Republican lines.

    Keep us posted when you decide to actually answer the question: why she switched opposing viewpoints as opposed to just dropping out of the party.

    Her name was Halo, and she was born last week, on March 29, two months early and weighing 3 pounds. She lived for four hours, dying in the arms of her father, Luis Villasana.

    Her mother, Samantha Casiano, knew their baby wouldn't survive long because she had anencephaly – part of Halo's brain and skull never developed.

    Now, they can't afford to give their newborn daughter the funeral they would like to give her.
    This is wilfull and intentional torture of girls and women, leaving them with lifelong trauma for literally zero reason other than Republicans in many states, including Texas, just can't be bothered to tighten up the language around their laws and are perfectly happy with pregnant girls and women suffering.

    If Republicans cared they'd be out in the streets protesting this outrage. They'd be demanding that these girls and women get the care they need to protect their health and not pointlessly traumatize them and saddle them with medical bills they may not be able to afford.

    I'm perfectly, 100% fine saying that if Texas Republican voters aren't out there protesting this shit that's for one reason: Because this is either their goal as well, or because they genuinely lack basic human empathy to care for the needless suffering their party is inflicting on pregnant girls and women.

    This is monstrous, and it's yet another monstrous story amongst too many to count in recent years. Brought to us by the Republican party.

    @tehdang, this is from Texas, not Idaho. What's your excuse this time for this legislation being passed? Is this another instance where Republican states are doing the same shit but somehow aren't comparable? Do you think that there won't be a similar law passed by Texas as more and more people leave the state for abortions? If so, what evidence do you have to back that up?

    Amy O'Donnell, director of communications for the Texas Alliance for Life, calls Casiano's situation "heartbreaking," but says she supports the abortion bans and opposes creating exceptions for fetal anomalies.


    People like these are why the GOP's influence in the suburbs is eroding rapidly.

    Because she went into labor early, Casiano has less time than she expected to sort out how to pay for Halo's funeral. She was quoted $4,000 by one funeral home. The family moved less than a year ago and used up all their savings on the move. Her family cooked menudo, a spicy Mexican soup, and raised $645 selling it by the bowl.

    Cogdell, who runs the Christian grief group that's been helping Casiano, says she was able to get several services donated, including picking up the baby's body. In addition to the $480 she raised for Halo's funeral, Cogdell said she used her organization's general family assistance funds to pay for the rest of the funeral, which cost $1,400 in all.

    Casiano has the burial scheduled for Friday morning. Because it's Good Friday, she was told it would be an extra $1,100 – she and Cogdell protested and the funeral home agreed to waive it. Even so, she says because she is short on funds, she's going to dress Halo herself and have a simple graveside service with an open casket. Later, she'll try to do a memorial service and put down a headstone. "Ultimately, I just want my daughter buried," she says.


    Shouldn't the State of Texas pay for something that they mandate?

    Duane says Texas has promised those funds before, as part of its defense of the fetal burial law. In that lawsuit, Duane argued that funerals can be expensive. "The state kept promising that they were going to provide all of these resources and grants and all this money for people who needed to have funerals," Duane says. "[Texas] never did any of that. It was all just political theater."


    Yeah. All talk and no action.

    Even as she tries to give her daughter the best funeral she can, she thinks she should have been able to get an abortion in Texas months ago. "This whole situation didn't even have to happen," she says.

    A federal judge suspends FDA's longtime approval of abortion pill, but gives the government 7 days to appeal

    The GOP picked the fights. Instead of concentrating on the issues of economy, crime, border, etc. They decided to ban abortion, trans, drag, same sex marriage, books, etc. And they wonder why the suburbs are abandoning the party.

    Breaking: Judge Kacsmaryk has stayed the FDA approval of mifepristone, the abortion pill that has been approved for over two decades. This is slated to take effect in seven days.

    @Rasulis. I think this needs to be in post, so just adding some more info. Thanks.

    Yes this drug has been approved for 23 years. The judicial activism that conservatives hate is in full swing.

    Be ready for a new front of fascism through the courts.

    Major copium from the NRO...
    The National Review is trying to convince themselves that they got their doors blown off in Wisconsin because of bad messaging, and it’s hilarious:




    The general public is finally waking up to the idea that the courts do matter, and they've always been political.

    For decades it was uncivil to ask a GOP nominee their position on abortion... Or if there was literal video of them saying they wanted to outlaw it. Pundits would rush to their defense. "They didnt really mean it" "No way they would overturn PRecEDenT".

    Wait...they think running away from an extremist position on abortion is what lost?

    Boy, I remember when NRO was at least an ostensibly respectable conservative outlet with at least a few writers who had above room temperature IQ's. ooph

    From President of AMA.

    My @AmerMedicalAssn statement today: "The court’s disregard for well-established scientific facts in favor of speculative allegations and ideological assertions will cause harm to our patients and undermines the health of the nation." More below...

    I love this post with so much truth. The judge and let's be honest is attacking science in favor of their idealogy.

    I know sometimes maybe my term of fascism, but this and admittedly the doctrine of the Republican party killing science is what any or some exterme groups embrace.

    Also my Goodness please, please Democrats shout from the mountains. Sorry the burden is on women, but I hope they don't sleep one second. National bans going to eff all.

    Wait politicians and judges attacking science in favor of their ideology? I could have sworn Ive heard that somewhere before....
