The 'New Jane Crow' and American Women's Civil Rights

The 'New Jane Crow' and American Women's Civil Rights | The Personhood Conspiracy | Scoop.it
The creep of personhood results in laws and actions that take away women's constitutional personhood. There is no (gender-neutral) way to extend personhood rights to fertilized eggs without depriving women of the same rights.

 Paul Ryan's personhood party continues to write "sanctity of life" legislation that allow rapists to stop their victims from seeking abortions--which means a rapist can lay claim to her body, against her will, a second time. -- Soraya Chemaly

 Mandatory waiting periods for abortion are a hardship for women. Their lives are held hostage and their finances wasted while they are forced to complie.

Roe v Wade and the new Jane Crow: reproductive rights in the age of mass incarceration.

"All pregnant women, not just those who seek to end a pregnancy, have benefited from Roe v Wade. Today's system of mass incarceration makes it likely that if Roe is overturned women who have abortions will go to jail. Efforts to establish separate legal "personhood" for fertilized eggs, embryos, and fetuses, however, are already being used as the basis for the arrests and detentions of and forced interventions on pregnant women, including those who seek to go to term. Examination of these punitive actions makes clear that attacks on Roe threaten all pregnant women not only with the loss of their reproductive rights and physical liberty but also with the loss of their status as full constitutional persons."

A Crisis Pregnancy Center is not a medical facility but it intentionally makes you think that it is. CPCs, sometimes referred to as Pregnancy Recourse Centers, is non-profit, religious, and anti-choice.

 Crisis Pregnancy Center staff are trained to lie, ask evading questions, and disguise their institution as a health care facility. AND they receive federal funding to shame women into believing lies like, "abortion causes breast cancer", "it will make you infertile", "condoms do not protect against STIs". No doctor at these facilities nor are they under HIPAA regulations of non-disclosure of medical records. Against all forms of contraception, they will harass a woman until in tears, then send her on her way with a religious token, and make her promise to keep her child. They only provide "help" if she agrees to go to Bible Study. This is not health care. Title X funding should be revoked.
