Vague Louisiana Bill Would Force Brain-Dead Pregnant Women to Serve as Incubators

Vague Louisiana Bill Would Force Brain-Dead Pregnant Women to Serve as Incubators | Crimes Against Humanity | Scoop.it

While shocking to any reasonable person’s conscience, these laws are surprisingly common. Thirty-one states have laws that restrict a pregnant woman’s ability to direct her doctor to remove life-sustaining treatment. In states like Texas, even if a pregnant woman explicitly says that she doesn’t want life-sustaining treatment, her express wishes can be ignored based on the state’s claimed interest in the fetus she is carrying.

Reflections on the Fifth Anniversary of the Assassination of Dr. George Tiller

Reflections on the Fifth Anniversary of the Assassination of Dr. George Tiller | Crimes Against Humanity | Scoop.it
The road ahead for abortion providers and their allies to not only preserve George Tiller’s specialized service, but simply to stay open, is hardly an easy one. But many of those who knew Dr. Tiller as a colleague and friend are no doubt fortified by remembering one of his favorite sayings: “Attitude is everything.”

Illegal Abortions Lead to Women’s Health Crisis in Haiti

Illegal Abortions Lead to Women’s Health Crisis in Haiti | Crimes Against Humanity | Scoop.it

After three days of vomiting, heavy bleeding and agonizing pain, she stumbled into a maternity hospital. Doctors rushed her into surgery where they stopped the bleeding, and repaired her perforated uterus, botched in the first abortion attempt...


Abortion is illegal in Haiti but women and girls are losing their uteruses and their lives as they turn to clandestine, increasingly deadly ways to terminate their pregnancies. These unsafe abortions are leading to a public health crisis in a region with one of the world’s highest rates of unintended pregnancies, experts say.

I chose this article because there is another form of slavery happening in the United States. It may not be called slavery but it is definantly similar.

Costas question: Compare and Contrast slavery and this new form of punishment.

Isle Of Man Lesbian Couple Can't Rent The House They Wanted Because Of Their Sexual Orientation

Isle Of Man Lesbian Couple Can't Rent The House They Wanted Because Of Their Sexual Orientation | Crimes Against Humanity | Scoop.it

Following a discriminatory act based on their sexual orientation, a lesbian couple of Isle of Man wishes an anti-discriminatory law for LGBTQ people.

 

The landlord refused the rental agreement with Kara Izzard and Laura Cull because they are lesbians.

 

They have had then the bad surprise to discover that there is no law in Isle of Man to protect them in this kind of situation whereas civil unions and adoption are possible for same-sex couples.

 

"I was so shocked to hear this and felt sick, said Cull.

"I didn't know where to go or what to do as I didn't have a legal leg to stand on so after speaking with my partner Kira we thought that the only thing we could do was to share our story with as many people as possible and try and raise awareness that on this beautiful island that we call home we can still be treated this way."

Challenge to abortion bill goes to trial this week

Challenge to abortion bill goes to trial this week | Crimes Against Humanity | Scoop.it
FARGO — As the abortion debate spotlight shines on North Dakota, the state’s only clinic that provides abortions will go to court this week to challenge a 2011 law it claims would effectively ban medication abortions.

Via J'nene Solidarity Kay
Deanna Dahlsad's insight:

“I think it shows that the real purpose here is not to protect women, which is what has been claimed, but I think the real purpose is to keep women from accessing safe and legal health care services in the state of North Dakota,” Katz said. “And I think it’s unfortunate that women in North Dakota have to keep going to court in order to make sure that their constitutionally protected rights remain protected.”

It makes depressing reading that so many people with learning disabilities are still in registered care homes. Even though many care homes are excellent environments and can provide the best care solution, it shouldn't be the default choice.

Unethical, Cruel, and Likely Illegal: Anti-Choicers Make Family's Tragedy Public Without Their Consent

Unethical, Cruel, and Likely Illegal: Anti-Choicers Make Family's Tragedy Public Without Their Consent | Crimes Against Humanity | Scoop.it


Anti-choice activist Jill Stanek recently published online the name and photo of a woman who passed away following a late abortion at the Maryland clinic of Dr. Leroy Carhart. The name and picture of the woman, I’ll call her Marie, along with information about her job, marriage, and pregnancy were soon all over the internet.

Marilee Ritchie Hird's comment, March 4, 2013 6:42 PM
That isn't really why she did it. And appropriate doesn't begin to cover it. What Jill Stanek did was, as the author said, immoral. I is beyond me how people who call themselves Christian can have so little compassion.
Deanna Dahlsad's comment, March 5, 2013 12:41 AM
The only concern Jill Stanek has regarding "the complications women have from abortions" is that she believes these women do not suffer enough. It's not just that she doesn't want women to have abortions (I think that's a prayer every person has), but Stanek works to create a world in which no woman would be allowed to have one. Removing choice isn't just removing our fundamental right under the United States Constitution, it isn't just a matter of socio-economic class (i.e. the wealthy go elsewhere to get them), but taking away Choice is to work towards the death of more women. The next time some pro-lifer goes to vote that platform, they should accept the fact that they are voting for more women to die.
Gracie Passette's curator insight, March 5, 2013 4:42 PM

If we are going to be sex positive, we need to understand the realities ~ including just how far the fundamental extremists are willing to go. Please read the comments!
