Oklahoma just passed it's Texas-style (but even more draconian) total abortion ban: illegal from fertilization. Allows private citizens to sue abortion providers.
An OB-GYN in Alabama has already seen the effects of anti-abortion laws. She's seen women in her state who come to hospitals with a miscarriage in need of medical help get turned away. As this criminalization of abortion progresses in the US, doctors will not care if you present in the ER with blood gushing out of you and running onto the floor. They cannot get involved with anything that may be remotely illegal.
A lot of women are going to die.
This enrages me so much. Particularly as someone who has been through a late miscarriage. I can't even imagine having to deal with this s*** at one of the most stressful moments of your life.
ETA: Another personal story that illustrates the insanity of all this: https://slate.com/technology/2022/0...turn-abortion.html?via=rss_socialflow_twitter
I wonder if women could actually sue their states, legally, if they suffer damage to their health or fertility due to these psycho laws. What about class-action lawsuits??
