- Florida Gov Ron DeSantis said he’ll sign a 6 week abortion ban -Iowa’s Gov wants to increase funding for crisis pregnancy centers -Conservative media continues panicked coverage of the “pro-abortion street mob” trying to “intimidate” Amy Coney Barrett. Here’s the street mob:

National media picked up the story of Republican AGs saying it’s illegal to ship abortion medication into their states - but not one story mentioned that the pills are also used to treat miscarriages

If that medication isn’t allowed to be shipped into 20 states, it means women in 20 states won’t have standard treatment for miscarriages. Any outlet covering this story without mentioning as much is not doing their job

I am *so tired* of mainstream media taking Republicans’ word as fact when it comes to abortion. Listen to doctors! Listen to experts! They’ll all tell you what banning abortion medication will do

Also in abortion news today: Wyoming Republicans are pushing a bill to give lawmakers the same standing as the Courts to interpret the state constitution—a way for them to pass their abortion bans whether the courts agree or not.

Honestly give me a fucking break. This guy really thinks he did something here? This was his big gotcha? Everyone knows student athletes provide medical histories - but those are kept with doctors in order to protect children's privacy. Florida wants those docs to go to schools

This information is available in the most nominal fucking google search - but sure, I'm the one who is "very dumb."

By the way, since not everyone can stomach abortion news every day - I've also just started a weekly roundup to highlight the most important stories

An Idaho woman who is miscarrying and been denied an abortion because of state law has been documenting herself getting sicker and sicker over the last two days

Leaked audio of a strategy session between Tennessee lawmakers and Susan B. Anthony Pro-Life America reveals the anti-abortion group telling politicians to wait a year or two before going after IVF and contraception

I’ve lived in NYC my whole life and I’ve never seen anything like this

Just thinking about how many men on the left called feminists hysterical for predicting today would come

It's fascinating to see people argue that women won't really be punished if abortion is illegal. Here are some things that have *already* happened to women despite Roe:

The political director of Texas' largest anti-abortion group was arrested for solicitation of a minor - and Texas Right to Life *really* doesn't want people to know

I shared these images on TikTok and people are losing their minds insisting that it's a lie - it's wild how indoctrinated people are about abortion

The more I read these panicked articles about places like NYC and San Francisco being 'unsafe', the more I realize it's not about crime at all - just discomfort with poverty being more visible

Here’s what has people so fired up - they can’t believe that the images they’ve been shown about pregnancy and abortion aren’t real
