What are the laws?

Under one of the legislations, going into effect after the ruling, potential relatives of embryo or fetus can sue abortion providers for up to $20,000 within four years of abortion. While rapists cannot sue under the law, a rapist's family members would be able to sue.

Planned Parenthood has also sued over another ban--set to come into effect on August 19--that criminalizes abortions done after six weeks of gestation except in cases where it was needed to save a pregnant person's life or done because of rape or ------.

The third abortion legislation, which takes effect August 25, will allow a near-total criminalizing of all abortions, but allow doctors to defend themselves at trial by claiming the abortion was done to save the pregnant person's life.

Just mind blowing but Idaho's always been something of an a--pit. If I was a doctor practicing in Idaho, I would be moving somewhere else.

Idaho is where fascists and white supremacists go to retire and be free from encountering any minorities.

The "panhandle" is a whole different planet. Well, this planet in 1950.

Interestingly, Idaho has one of the lowest female populations in the country, sharing the bottom of the list with such womens' rights bastions as Wyoming, North Dakota, Utah, Iowa and South Dakota. Maybe women with the means to do so are voting with their feet.

Welcome to Idaho!
Land of Incels!

(Yes, we know the name of our state is ironic)

"Latentcies" is an anagram for "Incel State"...

(I'm sure it's just "situational.")

Another example of our government being used as intended. Don't like it? Form your own government. Find a way to separate yourselves. Just don't incite violence like you have been doing for the last few years just because your opinion doesn't match someone else's. It works for half of the population. Trying to force your style of government on those content with the current style doesn't make you any better than them. In fact, it makes you morally lesser than.

Necessary DR disclaimer to appease the kids: I am pro-choice. Objectivity isn't a sin.

The founding fathers intended for rape victims to be sued by their attackers' families?
