  • The controversial abortion restrictions sweeping the US

    SOURCE

    Surprised this didn't get a topic her yet, but I think it really deserves one.

    I am disgusted by the republicans, and anyone who dares to ever say "not all white people" and "not all men" surely found the great timing to stay quiet now. *we see you*

    Will later provide the sources and valuable info on why this is not just a women issue and how this legislation is racist at its core. Feel free to shade the hell out of Alyssa Milano even if she's your childhood idol (like in my case). That #sexban is useless and full of blind spots for a bigger picture.

    Important: white woman wrote and accepted this bill, so cis men are not the only ones to blame here, this is bigger than gender.

      The abortion topic...for the longest time I thought like you guys and thought it was the womanís right to terminate but after seeing an aborted baby...have any of you seen that? It was one of the saddest and awful things Iíd ever seen and it shifted my perspective on this topic...can a law which stops the murder of innocent babies be such a bad thing?

      I understand both sides of this argument, not sure what to think...

        I don’t think murder is the right term at all - a foetus isn’t a fully rational, functioning person with human thoughts, feelings or developed brain connections.

        I’m also not sure how much men should be getting involved with a purely female issue. Yes, it takes a man to make a child, but the woman carries it, physically births it and lives with the lasting effects of that. Then you have economic and social issues that certain women should not have to go through pregnancy, whether it results in adoption or not. Not to even mention rape and incest!

          Well it should simply be the mothers choice, especially when itís her that has to have the baby growing in her for 9 months and give birth....plus theyíre not even considering women who have been raped. So now if a woman is raped she has to be forced to have the baby? Terrible

          yes its sad, but I think it would be even worse if the baby was to be born by a mother who didnít want him/her in the first place. If you are not ready to bring a child to this world, you should have the option not to...especially if it was the product of rape or something.

            I do not know how people can be so full of hating everyone who looks different. All conservatives have found racism as their go-to-topic - worldwide. They do not have any solutions for current problems, other than blaming marginalized groups.

            So... without Blacks, Gays, Jews, Muslims, Latinos et al what do they think their cultures will gain?

            The latest abortion bills are so 1754... I can't even know what to say to that.

            Most conservatives do not want to accept that time moves forward. They cling to the past. Also in Europe.

            If they get their ways, the world would not see the year 2030 bc we'd all be dead.

            I wonder sometimes when all people will realize that we only have this one Earth and that we're ALL THE SAME.

              Why is it racist? I understand that only white people (mostly men) are enforcing this law, a disgusting law at that, but they’re not saying white women can have abortions and no other races can?

                Men can have a view on this topic too ya know...what do you think about women trying to petition to have the right to kill their baby up until 9 months or what should be done about babies that survive the abortion process? (I didn’t even know that was possible!) There are so many aspects to this that I don’t see people talking about. Even if you don’t agree with the law, surely you can understand the basics of why people would oppose the death of innocent life?

                Also if a woman doesn’t want a baby she does have options to avoid a pregnancy to begin with...the rape thing is another discussion...but then again it’s hard to prove someone was raped as it is so not sure how they would be able to have this law but exclude rape victims from it. How would that work?

                I’m just trying to put an alternative view out of there so we can have a mature/civilised discussion.

                  Can a law that prevents girls who were raped by their fathers from having an abortion be that bad?
                  Can a law who may criminalise women for having involuntary abortions be so bad?

                  At 6 weeks a human foetus is indistinguishable from a mouse foetus. Or even a fish. Don't be ridiculous. These are not babies.

                  Abortions will happen regardless if you want to jail women and doctors for 99 years. This is not about late term abortions, this is about pre-10 week abortions. Or abortions in cases where the women's life is endangered.

                    Men can of course have a view, but I don’t think men alone should be enforcing anything. There are smart enough women who can do that and a man will never be able to relate to the issue.

                    No, of course abortion shouldn’t be an option after a certain point. If a baby is ready to be born, it’s a person, and that’s a different matter.

                    Abortion should never be used as birth control of course. A woman does have options to avoid pregnancy but none of them are 100%, and it is a shared responsibility between the man and woman to use birth control. It’s really not about proving if a woman was raped or not, the fact that women ARE raped and DO get pregnant by rape is reason enough alone to mean every woman should have the choice.

                      Yes I agree with you that they should exclude incest rape from this and rape in general...but in a general sense I can understand how one could be against abortion. Just because it’s a foetus it isn’t a valued life? Isn’t that how we all started...

                        Yes, a view - but men should not be able to legislate against a woman's right to choose (see: the Alabama ruling). Roe v Wade remains one of the most important Supreme Court rulings of all-time and it is frankly frightening that State legislatures threaten to overturn it.

                        From the moment a woman gets pregnant through to the point at which the baby is born - it should be entirely the woman's right, and she should be supported by the appropriate medical specialists with whatever decision she chooses to make.

                        Or are women entitled to legislate against men when they masturbate, as god forbid all of that innocent, lovely sperm goes to waste? Murdering bastards.

                          so you think a woman should have the right to kill their baby even if it is fully grown? It’s not just about the woman is it, what about the baby?

                            Sure, you can define life how you want it to be. You can even define sperm as life, isn't that how it all started?

                            For me, an aggregate of cells is not a priority. I am against late term abortions, anything after 15 weeks is fiddly for me. But killing a woman for having an abortion is frankly monstrous.

                            But bottom line: that law is appalling.

                                The anti-abortion laws that are being introduced in Republican US states like Alabama or Mississippi ban abortions after the 6th week of pregancy. At that point, the embryo is literally just a cluster of cells, there's no 'innocent baby' getting 'murdered'.

                                I'm against late-term abortions for non-medical reasons, but in most places those were never legal in the first place.

                                  In principle, I believe that a woman's body is her own (I can't believe that I've had to say that in 2019) - and that with the right medical advice, she should be empowered to do what she wants to a point (I'm against late term abortions that aren't medically necessary).

                                  In the vast majority of cases, abortion is conducted under the guidance of medical practitioners and the woman fully understands the implications - what Alabama has done is a disgrace.

                                    So the law says the woman should be killed for having an abortion? You’ve lost me. I’m slow remember.

                                    I’m glad you guys are at-least against late term abortions (apart from Wayne). Rihab - innocent life then ;)

                                      I get the whole my body my choice thing but at what point does the baby have a right to live? I think it goes beyond the my body my choice thing at a certain point imo.

                                          I will have to kind of agree. Pitting races and sexes against each other is a big problem in today's internet.
                                          Also bringing "gender politics" to something which concerns only biological sex is not warranted, in my opinion.

                                            Yes some states promote the death penalty on this issue. It is not law yet but they are trying hard.

                                              You should probably do some embryology research to answer this question. A human is not recognisable as a human before 15 weeks I believe, where it is still confusable with some monkey species. I think at 6 weeks it is still confusable with many mammals including mice. The embryo stage is medically defined as prior to 10 weeks, so that is a handy legal cut off. After that, it is assigned foetus status.

                                                  This will force many into having unsafe, unreported abortions. Deeply unfortunate.

                                                      I have been following this and frankly Iím absolutely disgusted with whatís happening in the US right now. If you donít want to have a baby then no one should be forced into it.

                                                      Iíve spent my entire life surrounded by kids in care and let me tell you this - we have enough kids in this world without parents that cannot look after them. We donít need anymore.

                                                      You ban abortions and you instantly create a backstreet abortion culture, with unqualified men and women butchering a womanís insides because they donít know what theyíre doing. Alternatively you have a load of desperate females searching the internet for a pill that can do the job - and who knows what dangers that brings.

                                                      I would argue abortions should be free to every female across the globe, and offered up to the point the baby can survive independently of the womb and with minimum risk of disability.

                                                      Failing the discovery of the soul and understanding at what point we all have one, I see no reason to restrict any existing laws on the subject.

                                                        In some countries, women are jailed for getting an abortion after the baby is dead. US is right on track for that. Blaming women for miscarrying.. Underage, rape, miscarriage, health, divorce-break up, etc... it will not matter. The women and doctors who assist will be jailed.

                                                          I consider this a very UNcontroversial subject (at least among Europeans) because I cannot imagine how an absolute denial to abortion can be justified ethically or logically so of course I am in support of abortion. I guess the real issue is at which month abortion becomes illegal and that month should not be too early as to not effectively limit abortion rights unnecessarily.

                                                          That said, I have to say that I am shocked at the idea of only a portion of society (i.e. women) should have a say in this. I mean come on now, it's a social issue and everyone should have a say. What next? Banning post-menopausal women/lesbians or infertile women having a say in this decision? Come on now.

                                                          I also dislike the idea of abortions being free to anyone but rape victims because of the fact that 99% of the non-rape cases, abortions are a result of stupidity but I also understand that high cost could act as a way to prevent them so OK... but maybe there should be some kind of education following an abortion so women could learn how to respect their body a bit more.
