Looks like she lied about this too: 65 seconds on google and I found several examples of schools closing due to clusters of cancer in their students.

If anything, the abortion pill would take off and probably be available in any pharmacy. And you cant BAN abortion out right. The left is lying about that.
And I think most of America knows this, which is why no one is really listening to Liberals this time.


Once again Boaz demonstrates his astonishing ability to completely ignore reality. The "abortion pill" is not available at "any pharmacy". The Supreme Court ruled earlier this year that women must go in person to a medical facility to receive mifepristone even if they have already consulted with a doctor remotely. No one is walking into a walmart pharmacy and walking out with an abortion pill.

Boaz also ignores triggers laws that at least 12 states already have on the books. For instance, the one that Texas has would go into effect automatically in 30 days if Roe v. Wade is ever overturned. That law could result in $100K+ fines and potentially up to life in prison for anyone who performs an abortion. Or there's Idaho's trigger law which has an exception for cases of rape of incest proving that the anti-choice movement is not really about the life of the potential child but is actually about controlling women.

Since Idaho is one of the 12 states that has a marital rape exemption law, a husband could impregnate a wife against their will and she would not be able to abort because the state would not recognize it as rape thus taking away any control that a woman has over her reproductive choices.

As someone who has a hesitant libertarian bent, I don't understand the new breed of right-wingers. They claim to be small-government conservatives yet clamor for government interference in a woman's fundamental choice about whether to allow a separate organism to grow inside her body. They love self-defense, reacting with joy when someone kills a burglar who is looking to steal some stuff to fund their opiate habit, but they don't recognize a woman's right to bodily integrity. Even if she gets pregnant intentionally, choosing later to terminate the pregnancy, isn't that akin to inviting your brother to stay with you and then evicting him in the winter, condemning him to homelessness and possibly death? Let's just assume for the sake of argument that the choice to evict your brother is immoral. Fine. Believe what you want about morality, but how can a right-winger justify laws restricting a person's right to bodily integrity? If you're truly a small-government conservative or libertarian, why do you think the law should enforce morality on citizens? What if, 100 years down the road, the US is a majority Muslim country? Do you support the government making and enforcing laws requiring "moral" behavior in the eyes of the Muslim majority? (Keep in mind that only a minority of US citizens believe abortion should be illegal.)

Although not relevant to this particular topic, I have another bone to pick with Trump-cons. Why do so many of you fly a blue line flag AND NOT an American flag? You're flying a flag celebrating government! Or did you fail to realize that police are government? Not only are they government, but they're the form of government with the most power to interfere in our lives. They can steal your property, kill you, and make your life a living hell without consequences. How dumb can a group of people be?

"The kid is toast but Mommy & Daddy should be just fine."

I don't think so. They had a duty to warn the school that he had access to weapons but like typical MAGAts they want all their freedumbs without recognizing their responsibility to the people around them.

"On Nov. 21, a teacher found Ethan Crumbley searching for ammunition on his phone and alerted school officials, who left messages for his mother that went unreturned. His mother later texted him, "LOL, I'm not mad at you. You have to learn not to get caught."" Says it all.

They are toast too. "Four days before the shooting, Ethan accompanied his father to a gun shop, where James Crumbley bought a 9mm handgun, prosecutors said. Michigan law prohibits those under 18 years of age from buying or possessing firearms, except in limited circumstances such as hunting with a license and a supervising adult."

If they were fine, they wouldn't have tried to run.

"Two attorneys for the Crumbleys, Shannon Smith and Mariell Lehman, have said the couple never sought to evade authorities."

How can lawyers stand up in front of a judge and outright lie like that?

"On the morning of the shooting, a teacher discovered a drawing by Ethan Crumbley that depicted a handgun, a bullet, and a bleeding figure next to the words "Blood everywhere," "My life is useless," and "The thoughts won't stop - help me."" The kid was crying out for help and his parents knew he had a weapon and DID NOTHING. Fk them. Let them rot in jail. They are useless to society.

I saw the mother sobbing during her arraignment .... finally some emotion but only over her arrest and not the four children who will never live their lives. They are scum just like the scum they raised.
