    The US is a broken country. It really cannot be overstated.

    Excuse my ignorance, but will it be possible to cross the border to a less backwater state and then have the abortion?

    Yeah, I just read this in the news. How this is even possible in a developed country in 2019 is unfathomable.

    Whole point is to try and get it (and other similar legislation) up to SCOTUS with the end goal of overturning Roe v Wade

    You have to define what you understand as "developed". In many ways, USA is a third world country, only with the license to print Dollars + rating agencies + military power.

    Meanwhile here in Iceland a law was just passed to allow abortion up until 22 week of pregnancy...

    Absolutely fecking disgusting, there's no other words for it. I feel sorry for Americans as much as we struggle with the political extreme right here in the UK it just doesn't compare to these relegious zealots.

    I would say if you're opposed on relegious grounds the exceptions don't make much sense. There isn't really much middle ground between the two views, either you believe your religious views should be enforced in others or you don't.

    It's been under attack since the ruling mate.

    We'll see if Roberts cares about stare decisis or not.

    It's a shitty position, but the lesser of two bad outcomes. I assure you I'll never punish you for your father's actions either.

    Yeah, you sound like a generous chap, even proposing rape as a legitimate reproduction strategy. I feel sorry for the women who have to put with you...

    You'll get no support for the death penalty from me. It's abhorrent. I don't understand how anybody can claim to be pro-life yet support it.

    Imagine telling women what they can do with their own bodies. Not that that bothers you.

    They should be given all the support they need. So should mothers thinking of terminations because they can't afford a child. But it's cheaper to just tell them to abort. Society copping out of its responsibilities to help the vulnerable.

    Society has a responsibility to give a rape victim the option on how to proceed with her future, not to burden her and restrict her personal choice.

    It bothers me greatly that any woman would be put in that positon to begin with. We desperately need to crack down on rape culture too.

    All of this is basically an attack on access to abortion. It's something Conservative states have been doing constantly in order to get around roe v wade and planned parenthood v case. It's not easy for some less fortunate women to travel across the state to access clinics that allow abortion. It's a huge financial burden among other things

    https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5953191/


    My wife and I decided on an abortion some years ago. Our country doesn't allow abortion. Even though Florida is a one hour plane trip away it still is a toll and would require hotel stay among expenses that you would not sustain if you didn't have to travel. And even then we had to travel from where we lived to the main city to find a doctor that was willing to break the law to perform the abortion. She was knocked out due to the surgery and we had to stay with friends till she recuperated.

    It sucks. Im not going to lie. Yes you can go to another state. But I honestly feel it for any 18 year old woman that is totally alone with no financial backing to do such a thing.

    If you're the daughter of a rich Republican, sure. If you're poor and without means to travel up to the North, then probably not.

    They've criminalized travelling out or state to get am abortion done, but I have no idea as to how they would enforce that.

    Imagine depriving women of healthcare, driving them into the clutches of back-street abortionists, serious injury and possible death.

    Like you said how will they enforce that? It's as good (or worse) as saying pregnant women are banned from travelling out of state.

    I wish there was a lefty version of Alex Jones who'd argue this is a secret GOP cabal plot to turn all people into gay sex.

    I understand what you are trying to say. But in no way is USA anywhere near what a 'third world' developing country is. Not even close
