Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Wednesday, August 10, 2022

A 17-year-old girl and her mother have been charged with a series of felonies and misdemeanors after an apparent medication abortion at home in Nebraska. The state's case relies on evidence from the teenager's private Facebook messages, obtained directly from Facebook by court order, which show the mother and daughter allegedly bought medication to induce abortion online, and then disposed of the body of the fetus. While the court documents, obtained by Motherboard, allege that the abortion took place before the Supreme Court overturned Roe v Wade in June, they show in shocking detail how abortion could and will be prosecuted in the United States, and how tech companies will be enlisted by law enforcement to help prosecute their cases.

The lesson here is .... FACEBOOK is not private and DON'T put anything out there you want exposed.

The police state is watching.

Don't take your cell phone with you.

Buy a tracfone with cash and throw it away when done with it.

If you're just learning that "lesson" you've had your head in the sand. Delete facebook.

While I don't believe what these two engaged in should be a crime, the fact is that in their state it is a crime. If you are going to commit a crime don't discuss it over electronic communications. It's not just facebook. It's almost any communication app. Company gets served a warrant, in almost all cases they are going to comply.
