Alabama is also moving to outlaw abortion.

Welcome back to the 1950’s ladies.

Courtesy of TPM:

Alabama lawmakers are proposing to outlaw almost all abortions as conservatives take aim at the 1973 U.S. Supreme Court decision that legalized abortion.

Alabama lawmakers on Tuesday will introduce legislation to make it a felony to perform an abortion at any stage of pregnancy unless the mother’s health is in jeopardy. If enacted, it would be the most restrictive in the country and certain to be challenged in court.

Emboldened by new conservatives on the Supreme Court, abortion opponents in multiple states are seeking to ignite new legal fights to challenge Roe v. Wade.

Kentucky and Mississippi approved abortion bans once a fetal heartbeat is detected, which happens at about six weeks.

As we reported just a few days ago Georgia has already passed the “heartbeat” abortion ban as well.

I imagine they will next be working on repealing a woman’s right to vote and to own property. 

You might laugh now, but trust me, they’re thinking about it.

    “An organization whose self-proclaimed goal is to “bring God back to America” is pushing for a piece of legislation in Tennessee that will let adoption and foster care agencies discriminate against LGBT couples.

    The Tennessean reports that an organization called the Congressional Prayer Caucus Foundation is lobbying lawmakers to support backing the adoptions bill, which they argue is essential to securing their “religious freedom.”

    The Tennesseean notes that similar legislation passed recently in Oklahoma and Kansas, and the bill’s main sponsor says that it is modeled after legislation that’s on the books in Virginia.

    The legislation could be problematic from a legal perspective, however, given that it expands beyond adoption agencies and allows for foster care agencies to discriminate against LGBT parents as well.

    “Foster care agencies are essentially contractors for the Department of Children’s Services, and are paid a daily rate depending on a child’s needs,” the Tennesseean reports. “If this legislation also passes the Senate, then taxpayer-funded organizations would be able to exclude certain people based on the organizations’ written religious or moral beliefs.””

      ” In 2016, the judge helped found a school in Waukesha County which forbids “immoral sexual activity” by teachers, students, or even parents of students, and lists such activity as grounds for dismissal. The school defines immoral sexual activity as “any form of touching or nudity for the purpose of evoking sexual arousal apart from the context of marriage between one man and one woman.”

      At least as of last February, Hagedorn remained a board member at the school.

      In the likely event that Hagedorn takes a seat on the state supreme court, he will potentially have the chance to write his idiosyncratic idea of what constitutes a “hostile work environment for Christians” into the state’s law.” Je$u$ Fucking Chri$T

    Get it. I did.

    “Becoming was the best and fastest selling book for Tattered Cover that Miller can remember, save for Harry Potter. And that trend has borne out not just nationwide but around the world, as Obama’s memoir is on track to become the best-selling memoir of all time.”

    ““It was really all ages, from little kids to older people who were just starstruck, really, to be able to get to see her, meet her, shake her hand. It was all very brief, but even then, it was very meaningful and touching to a lot of people.”

    ” there are plenty of records Becoming has shattered: It was the fastest-selling book upon launch in Barnes & Nobles’ history, for one, and Penguin Random House reported that its first-day sales, including pre-orders, represented the largest single-day sales total for any book published in 2018.” “Save for the Bible, it’s wild to think that this many people, not just in the United States but the world over, are all reading and talking about the same book. We the People are too polarized to agree on even the most innocuous things, but somehow everyone — or a sizable segment of everyone — can agree on Michelle Obama.”

    “Madison County Probate Judge Frank Barger, who was just elected in November, allowed Magers to become the legal representative for the aborted embryo, which is referred to as “Baby Roe” in legal filings — a misnomer, as it’s not even a fetus at six weeks, much less a baby in the way that’s commonly understood.”
    “The highest federal court maintains that right belongs to the pregnant person alone — even if someone else in their life disagrees with that decision.”

    OT? FB>”
    “I was never planning a vote prior to the 2020 Election on the wonderful HealthCare package…”
    He literally promised a vote on this non-existent Republican healthcare plan within the first 100 days of his presidency. More than that, for the last two weeks he’s been daily talking about how Republicans must completely repeal the ACA right now. Except even Mitch McConnell revolted (or was already revolting, but I digress) and told him that Republicans wouldn’t repeal the ACA.
    So, now, like everything else with this guy, he’s changed the narrative to claim he didn’t say what he very much said.
    He’s every bit as bad as I told you he would be.
    I keep reminding you of that, because soon you’re going to have the chance to change it, to throw this jackass out of office, to throw Republicans out of congress, and most of all to throw these lousy rotten sons of bitches out of your state and local government. And THIS time, I don’t want to hear any bullshit from liberals, progressives, or anyone left of Atilla the Hun. I don’t want to hear any whining bullshit about your goddamned unicorn. Start in with that, and I will make an example out of you.
    You either show the fuck up, Citizen, and do your duty to the future, or you’re complicit.
    And it’s really just that simple.”I was never planning a vote prior to the 2020 Election on the wonderful HealthCare package that some very talented people are now developing for me & the Republican Party. It will be on full display during the Election as a much better & less expensive alternative to ObamaCare…

    …This will be a great campaign issue. I never asked Mitch McConnell for a vote before the Election as has been incorrectly reported (as usual) in the @nytimes, but only after the Election when we take back the House etc. Republicans will always support pre-existing conditions!

    “Party of Healthcare.’”

    It’s all just a branding exercise for him.”
    “Bottom line: Trump doesn’t know the first thing about health care, the courts, the law, how the government works, or the Constitution.”

    OT? BetNot “he Not Invisible Act would help establish an overarching federal strategy for addressing the skyrocketing rates of violence targeted at indigenous people.”
    “The bill, sponsored by Sens. Catherine Cortez Masto (D-Nev.), Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska) and Jon Tester (D-Mont.), comes as Native women are facing an epidemic of violence.”
