“From Griswold, to Roe, to Casey, our courts have recognized that these personal decisions — the ability to take ownership of your own reproductive destiny — are inherent in the liberty and equality our Constitution protects. As we approach the next major reproductive rights case to reach the Supreme Court, the question now is whether those rights will be made subject to the religious beliefs of others.”

I love how Airzona goes out of their way to make Texas seem sane.

“I commend you for coming forward though Limbaugh’s attack was a disappointing reminder of how slowly attitudes change. In 1977, before I started law school, I took the same position with the Board of Directors of the teachers’ union to which I belonged and of which I was an officer. Another Board member called me a “whore” for suggesting that our health plan should cover the cost of birth control pills because I was divorced. The only comfort I can offer you is that after nearly 28 years in practice, I find my brothers at the Bar less hostile than that former colleague or repugnant Rush.”

“‘We Have No Choice’: One Woman’s Ordeal with Texas’ New Sonogram Law”
The Right Not to Know - The Texas Observer
This is important. This is the first article I’ve read about the direct result of all these “laws” and “amendments” that are being tossed around in regards to abortion. It’s not about a hypothetical situation. It’s not someone’s opinion. It’s not about a conservatives and women’s rights. This is one woman’s story of her wanted baby and her unwanted abortion and everything that falls in between.
I just don’t understand how anyone could be on the other side of this issue after reading her story.
I will always reblog this story… Always.
