is about to pass a law that bans all abortions after 8 weeks, no exceptions for rape, incest or human trafficking.

The House is debating it now just approved it, Senate has already passed it, Gov. Mike Parsons says he will sign it.


GOP lawmaker: I was pregnant at 15 and homeless. This bill is the "right thing to do."
A Republican representative defended the abortion bill by recounting her experience as a teen mother.

"Life begins at conception," she said. She then addressed some criticism from Democratic members, who said if the Republican representatives were truly "pro-life," they would do more to to combat issues like childhood poverty.

“Mr. Speaker, I’m proud that our body, that our state is standing for the unborn. And I do care for those who go through poverty after they are born — I’ve lived it. Pregnant at 15 and homeless — I’ve lived it. With a family that I couldn't turn to — I’ve lived it."
"And this bill is the right thing to do," she said.

Y'all Quaeda.

I am ashamed of the state of my childhood. Not surprised, but still ashamed.

Religion is a main driver. I want to see the "Church of Satan" do the following:
1- Get recognized as a religion
2- file suit that their members are religiously allowed to perform / gain abortions.
3- Gain huge membership as a result.

I would also like to see other recognized religions that don't have any issue with Abortion to make the same claims and file the same lawsuits. CAN SOMEBODY please finally put paid to this damn "Christianity" hegemony over our politics.

No of course not.

St Louis has laws that make it illegal to feed homeless people.

Missouri does not require that any type of sex ed be taught in schools. When it is taught it has to be abstinence-based. There is no mention of consent or assault in the MO curriculum.

Missouri is one of the states that intentionally left half a million people uninsured and billions of dollars on the table by refusing to expand Medicaid under the ACA.

There are some amazing nonprofits in MO that work with homeless teens and teens in crisis and provide shelter, access to education and healthcare and complete information about reproductive health but with this law the girls they work with will have no choice but to carry pregnancies to term, which is a whole other sort of trauma for them.

It even gets worse. Traveling to another state for an abortion ? If the woman is under the age of 18, it's a federal charge. (Mann act)

Dana Milbank on the junk science being peddled for these new laws: [www.washingtonpost.com]

The quotes are cringeworthy in their ridiculousness.

When AL passed their’s, an advocate on the radio mentioned how much better “the science” is today (and that they use it as a basis for ramming these laws through.)

I’ll say it again: they aren’t brave enough to make a Bible argument or a “because it’s killing” argument. They have to smear on fake science to “legitimize” it for a science-based audience. It ain’t gonna work.
