I usually refrain from using coarse obscenities but this Ken Paxton is a ---- a*****e. I think he could use a good perifrontal lobotomy to improve his understanding of how lives can be lost and emotional, mental, and physical harm can be done when therapeutic abortions are denied to women who desperately need them.

"this Ken Paxton is a ---- a*****e"

That's true.

He's also upholding the law.

The law was written by --------, and also legalized by --------.

Republicans are proud to have him. Remember, he is a criminal. The Texas leg decided to protect him after admitting he was guilty as hell.

GOP: Party of Everything including your life.

Damn. the doctors have said further carrying the fetus could detrimintally affect her fertility in the future!!

I'm no woman but this seems more than enough to justify a timely procedure.

Why would you to do that to a viable fertile human being?

I guess cruelty really is the point.

Republicans hate law and justice. They won't be happy until democracy is replaced with a dictatorship.

The most important health decisions a woman can make is NO ONE ELSE'S BUSINESS.

This was entirely predictable. Paxton hates women. He hates that a woman wants to protect her body over a fetus that will not survive. He hates that a woman judge decided that the medical doctors and a woman judge have decided that terminating a fetus THAT WILL NOT LIVE and that WILL DAMAGE HER BODY and possibly KILL HER over rides his feelings that the sky man who never said anything about abortion would not like it.

This the is the ------- ghouls that the GOP has become.

Women rights to healthcare take a ------- back seat to a work of fiction.

FKK them.

Paxton's threats reflect a fundamental disdain for our legal system and completely disqualify him from serving as attorney general.

Texas' abortion ban has an exception for medical emergencies. This woman's physicians have concluded that such emergency exists, and a judge has concurred. The judge entered an order expressly prohibiting Paxton from enforcing the ban as to this woman and her doctors. By threatening to prosecute the parties involved anyway, he is literally saying he will not follow a court order. If that actually occurs he should be jailed for contempt.

Conservatives are not pro life. Conservatives are pro fetus. That is all.

Among the far right wing, the rule of law means nothing. The Constitution is just a list of suggestions to be disregarded. The majority of voters also may be disregarded when, in the minds of the far right wing, they make the wrong decision. Welcome to TrumpWorld.

I guess after involuntarily sterilizing minorities around the world, doing it to your own is easy.

Ignoring court orders is just another step towards authoritarianism and fascism.

Good work Texas. You are almost there!

I can't fully express my thoughts on this because it will likely end up causing men in suits to knock on my front door.

Isn't this basically the same thing that Dem DA in Florida got (illegally) fired for?

They got the courts to block the order so they are not completely fascist yet. They will still listen to court orders that they agree with. Wahoo!

Conservatives want to shrink government small enough to fit in a woman's uterus.
Talibaptist Sharia law is alive and well in Texas.

GOP Senate candidates soften their abortion stances amid a post-Roe losing streak

... Republican candidates in states that will determine control of the U.S. Senate next year have quietly shifted their stances on abortion rights in an attempt to combat Democrats' success running on the issue.

In key 2024 battleground states, some GOP Senate hopefuls have subtly begun to place more emphasis on situations in which abortion should be legal, while others have made clear they oppose a federal ban on the procedure.

The shift in focus comes as Democrats have continued to win elections across the country by forcefully emphasizing their support for abortion rights in the 18 months since the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade. Republican strategists have urged their candidates to oppose a national ban, while party leaders have simultaneously implored them to address the issue head-on.

Democrats say Republicans are trying to soften stances that may have been deeply unpopular with a majority of voters.

"On the record and on video, Republican Senate candidates have already staked out dangerous positions that would make abortion illegal without exceptions -- and we'll make sure voters see and hear them in their own words." said Nora Keefe, a spokesperson for the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee, the party's Senate campaign arm. ...

Will the messaging of the Democrats work?
