Extreme anti-choice comments have not been removed from the Facebook pages of two Colorado Republicans, raising the question about how much responsibility they have for the posts.
Like many across the country, an investigation in Kansas found that Planned Parenthood was not involved with the illegal sale of fetal tissue.
While making the media rounds, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) threw a new falsehood into his usual spiel, implying that the majority of Latino Americans side with his anti-choice agenda.
“Jane” could only assume, from the debates held in the state legislature over the past several weeks, that since anti-choice lawmakers apparently believe they’re in the best position to tell Texans whether they can, or should, access legal abortion care, “Jane” would just go straight to the source.
Republicans want abortion providers to assume every patient is underage unless the patient can present an unspecified “valid governmental ID,” which could end legal abortion care for undocumented Texans.
The new bills would ban abortion as early as six weeks, make it extremely difficult for minors to obtain abortions, make all women wait longer to get an abortion, and force women carrying fetuses with fatal anomalies to hear about perinatal hospice options that may not even exist in the state.
A federal judge said Wednesday that he would make a ruling on a lawsuit challenging parts of Texas’ new omnibus anti-choice law “as quickly as [he] can,” as the law is poised to go into effect next Tuesday.
On the second day of Texas’ omnibus anti-choice law trial, testimony focused on whether abortion providers would be able to obtain hospital admitting privileges under the new law.
Opponents of Texas’ new omnibus anti-choice law went to court Monday morning to ask a federal judge to block two tenets of HB 2 that require abortion providers to secure admitting privileges at nearby hospitals and restrict the prescription of a medication abortion regimen.
If accepted by the federal court, Planned Parenthood would narrow its legal challenge to a requirement that providers link to state-sponsored anti-abortion materials on their websites.
