Texas man sues women for helping ex-wife get abortion
“A Texas man is suing three women for helping his now-ex-wife obtain pills to have an abortion last year. The lawsuit says under Texas law, “a person who assists a pregnant woman in obtaining a self-managed abortion has committed the crime of murder”.
In 2021, Texas passed a law that made most abortions illegal after about six weeks of pregnancy. It gave citizens the right to sue anyone who “knowingly engages in conduct that aids or abets the performance or inducement of an abortion”. A pre-Civil War ban on abortions was also still on the books when Roe v Wade was overturned. Mr Silva is being represented by Republican state representative Briscoe Cain and Jonathan Mitchell, a former solicitor general who helped pen one of Texas’ abortion bans.” – BBC
Abortion pill ban
“Wyoming Gov. Mark Gordon (R) signed into law a ban on abortion pills, as the state adopted what appears to be the nation’s first such state law. The new law says that it will be “unlawful to prescribe, dispense, distribute, sell or use any drug for the purpose of procuring or performing an abortion”. The law includes penalties of up to six months’ imprisonment and a fine of up to $9,000. But it exempts people who take abortion pills from criminal liability.” – Washington Post
You should have the right to control your own body
“The Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade on June 24, 2022 – The case that had recognized the federal constitutional right to abortion in 1973. The Supreme Court’s new ruling means that we have lost federal constitutional protection for abortion. This devastating decision turns back the clock on reproductive rights 50 years. It gives politicians the authority to make decisions for you. And it lets them control what your future will look like.
But the abortion rights movement is strong. Planned Parenthood Action Fund is fighting even harder for the rights of all people — and generations to come — to live the life they choose.” – Planned Parenthood
