States are prosecuting women in the name of ‘fetal rights’. We should all be alarmed | Moira Donegan

The indictment of Marshae Jones is part of a larger trend of states criminalizing women for unintended pregnancy outcomes In December, 28-year-old Marshae Jones saw a woman she didnt like, Ebony Jemison, in the parking lot of a Dollar General in Pleasant Grove, Alabama, and confronted her. The fight turned physical, and Jemison shot Jones, who was five months pregnant, in the stomach. Jones was rushed to a hospital. She survived, but lost her pregnancy. The fetus had been struck by a bullet. Yet a grand jury indicted Jones not Jemison for manslaughter. Under Alabama law a fetus has the same rights as a living person, and the grand jury ruled that Jones had an obligation to avoid anything that …

PARTY OF SCIENCE: Chris Cuomo says the pro-life position is more about feelings than fact

As Twitchy reported earlier, CNN’s Chris Cuomo on Monday night had as guests Rick Santorum and Christine Quinn debating abortion, with Cuomo pretty obviously siding with Quinn, who offered up scientific facts such as, “When a woman is pregnant, that is not a human being inside of her.” It’s a good thing we have the party of science to set us straight on such issues as when that clump of cells becomes a baby (when it’s “wanted” and when it “looks” like a baby … science). Cuomo must have received a lot of backlash from viewers because on Tuesday morning he explained the need to explain “the medical realities” of the procedures … which, of course, CNN will never, ever show. Having non …

‘My body anatomy is being taken from me!’ Pro-abort’s heartbeat bill rant almost makes Alyssa Milano sound sane (almost) [video]

Alyssa Milano and pals have been pretty nutty about the prospect of Georgia acknowledging that unborn babies with heartbeats are people, but they’ve got nothing on this gal: This child is screaming about her inability to kill a human being with a heartbeat. pic.twitter.com/zKYlJIityN — Kelly Campagna (@warriorwoman91) April 3, 2019 If that video is a parody, it’s a damn good one. “I haven’t looked up the facts,” but trust me when I say that this is a big f*cking deal. “I HAVENT LOOKED UP THE FACTS” 🤣🤣🤣 — Ian (@FreeSpeechian) April 3, 2019 Her “body anatomy” is being taken from her, you guys! Well, maybe just her brain. Sweetheart, believe it or not it’s actually really easy not to …

‘WTF is she smoking?’ Dem Rep. Jackie Speier takes a page from AOC’s book to argue for abortion rights [video]

Today, Democratic Rep. Jackie Speier took the stage at a “Stop the Bans” rally to argue against anti-abortion laws: At the #StopTheBans rally, Rep. Jackie Speier says she is not ashamed of her second-trimester abortion, that she had for medical reasons, and criticized male state lawmakers for thinking “it’s ok to send women to prison or give them the death penalty for having an abortion.” pic.twitter.com/mJLaNBFW8t — Julio Rosas (@Julio_Rosas11) May 21, 2019 First of all: The sole exemptions for the Alabama abortion ban, which is arguably the strictest in the country, are to protect the life of the pregnant woman or if the fetus cannot survive. It seems that Rep. Speier’s second-trimester abortion fell into one of those two …
