    Re: '...information around abortion bills causing confusion and fear for patients..."

    When southern states announced their entries in these, 'who-can-be-more-sadistic-to-impregnated-women' contests...the image in my mind was that 'lottery_update' commercial: the announcer taps the mike, get's feedback, then announces whatever the new jackpot is up to, which, (via special effects), causes a near, stampede as updated lotto tickets are sought;
    In terms of this (failed) forced birther effort...the people, stampeding are leaving their jihadist faiths / forced_birth / foetel_worship, etc.
    Meanwhile...Abrahamic_Monotheist 'true-believer-defection' statistics are climbing, faster than an F-35, intercepting a (Russian) TU-95, off the coast!

    Pull quote in the article: "A big thing we encounter is just misinformation and stigma keeps (patients) from going to their appointments."
    Unfortunately, terrorism works...

    '' bills causing confusion & pain..'
    Trump headlines, that's right up his alley (another hate rally rant), insult & scare the hell out of anyone who loves & respects a woman's right to make her own reproductive decisions.
    2020 out they go!

    Whenever I read about the abortion debate, one person always comes to mind. US Congressman Steve Desjarlins of Tennessee, who is one of the biggest fighters in Congress to make abortion illegal. Only problem is that good ol' boy Steve encouraged his wife to have not one, but TWO abortions, because he didn't want more children. She terminated both pregnancies.

    Remarkably, after it was publicized that Desjarlins wife had aborted fetuses, with his consent, he was re-elected, twice.

    This is very typical of right wingers who rant and rave about abortion. It's not good if someone else has one, but THEIR abortion is their own business and they don't want anyone telling them no. Can you spell H-P-O-C-R-I-S-Y?

    They really need to bring back School House Rock and run it during prime time. It's pretty apparent that people don't know how the legal system works or how the justice system complements it.

    These opponents are not Christians, they are radicals trying to impose their twisted views of their holy book, which they pick and choose every passage they want to use. Their real name is "Religinazis"

    Always remember, this was done by representatives voted in by the people of the state. Whether I agree with them or not, the entire point of united states instead of a single nation is to give people options. If you really disagree with the laws of your state, move.
    These abortion bills are nothing more than inconvenience for abortions. Anyone can cross state lines for an abortion. Personally I support abortion but the people of a state have the right to decide for their state. It is how our nation is structured and everyone has an option.

    Back before abortion was legal, wealthy women could always obtain one by either leaving the country or scheduling a "D&C" with a doctor friend. Low and middle income women who wanted abortions were either forced to have a baby or be at the mercy of a back alley abortionist who could kill them or possibly give them a life threatening medical problem.

    Republicans are pro-birth, not pro-life. Your morality is deeply lacking if all you want is a child born but not a child fed, not a child educated, not a child housed.

    Simple.....it's murder.

  • Look_Again

    Maybe it's time for women to stand up for themselves again. Or, go back to 1950 I guess.

  • TrueBlue

    Women make up 51% of the electorate, and they are PISSED! Now they're coming for Republican scalps.

  • Chris Mann

    81% of Americans think that abortion should be legal. Politically, this could not have come at a worse time for Republicans.

  • Formerly_Right_Wing

    The Christian Taliban implementing their Christian Sharia Law. Do they not see the irony?

  • KlintzDisqus

    A women’s health specialist would refuse to go to a place simply because of abortion restrictions?

    Must not really care about women if they’d choose to go to an over-serviced area than one that is known to be under-served.

  • MTkatzpjs

    Hilarious that in the "land of the free", twenty-five old white men in AL recently decided what women can/cannot do with their bodies. Meanwhile, the death penalty in AL is routinely carried out! Hypocritical much??

  • Army Brat

    The best part about these abortion bills is that they show women they should never vote republicans.

    Probably the reason why Trump has fallen to a mere 39% approval as of today..

  • B-K KnightRider

    What's there to be confused about? Most Republicans, especially Republican politicians, hate women have real freedom, agency, or autonomy over their own destinies. AND the love to use the force of law to impose their religious beliefs onto everyone else by legislating their religious beliefs. In other words, they are wannabe theocrats so every chance they get they try to legislate as if they are theocrats.

  • Prophet With Honor

    Opening his eyes is a good sign, but the long term effects are still unpredictable. It could literally take years to know.

  • Lee Thompson

    I think one aspect of this assault on women's rights is the southern "good ol' boys" trying to keep women in their 'place'. Then, of course there is the oppressive Christian right trying to force their beliefs on others. It's not their call. They should mind their own business.

  • Kalinysta

    As the old saying goes: If men could have babies, abortion would be a sacrament.
