Federal judge: Abortion like right to bear arms

Federal judge: Abortion like right to bear arms | Dare To Be A Feminist | Scoop.it

Likening abortion to the right to bear arms, a federal judge strikes down Alabama provision restricting which doctors can perform the procedure.


...

Revisiting the issue in the court's Monday ruling, Thompson said, "The court was struck by a parallel in some respects between the right of women to decide to terminate a pregnancy and the right of the individual to keep and bear firearms, including handguns, in her home for the purposes of self-defense."

Both rights are controversial, and there are opponents of each who, based on moral or ethical convictions, feel they should not be rights and deserve no constitutional protection. Each protected right is also held by the individual, but neither right can be realized "without the assistance of someone else," he wrote.

Freedom Whore – Abortion, Shame, and The Right To Deny Me My Rights by Martha Plimpton

Freedom Whore – Abortion, Shame, and The Right To Deny Me My Rights by Martha Plimpton | Dare To Be A Feminist | Scoop.it

Many people might end up taking issue with my point of view here or how I’m expressing it. That will happen. I can’t, nor am I intending to, speak for every single person affected by the majestic tentacles of misogyny and patriarchy that reach out in all directions and attempt to suffocate the life out of any sense of shared outrage or mutual support of each other’s struggle with either. Plus, I admit, my thinking is not particularly nuanced on a day like today. Like a lot of people, I’m mostly just pissed.

I, like most people, don’t like being called names. So it kinda stung when a stranger called me a bunch of names intended to be derogatory on Facebook just because I posted a video about how women’s abortion rights are disappearing.


How calling women these names backfires. Big time.

No, you can’t deny women their basic rights and pretend it’s about your ‘religious freedom.’ If you don’t like birth control, don’t use it. Religious freedom doesn’t mean you can force others to live by your own beliefs.

Anti-choice activists and other social conservatives routinely argue that men are dogs whom women need to bring under control, usually by withholding sex in hopes of extracting a wedding ring. But this strategy is completely unnecessary, and there's no evidence it works.

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 | Dare To Be A Feminist | 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.

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.”
