    It's not just Republicans Boukaki.
    the numbers between Republicans and Democrats aren't that far off.

    Republicans are divided on the issue of abortion, according to a new American Barometer poll, conducted by Hill.TV and the HarrisX polling company.

    Twenty percent of GOP respondents said the procedure should be illegal under all circumstances, while 51 percent said it should be legal in limited cases, such as rape, incest and when the life of the mother is threatened.

    Another 20 percent of Republicans said it should be legal up until the third trimester, and only 9 percent said it should be legal under all circumstances.

    The official GOP platform calls for Roe v. Wade, which legalized abortion, to be overturned, and few Republican election officials support abortion rights in all cases.

    "Republicans, traditionally the more conservative on this issue, are evenly split on whether it should be law. I read that as for many voters, this is territory that cannot be overturned," Morning Consult senior reporter Joanna Piacenza told Hill.TV's Joe Concha on "What America's Thinking."

    Democrats are also somewhat divided on the issue, with 12 percent saying abortion should be illegal under all circumstances, while 32 percent said it should be legal in limited circumstances, such as rape, incest, and life of the mother.

    Thirty-one percent said it should be legal up until the third trimester, while 25 percent said it should always be legal.

    The American Barometer was conducted on August 31 to September 1 among 1,000 registered voters. The sampling margin of error was plus or minus 3.1 percent.

    you ST racists / misogynists obviously approve of this censorship

    Facebook removed doctors' fact-check of false anti-abortion video because Ted Cruz complained

    Facebook removed a fact-check authored by three doctors rebutting an anti-abortion video’s false claims because Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas and other Republicans complained in a letter to CEO Mark Zuckerberg.

    it removed the fact-check pending a review after Cruz, Sen. Josh Hawley of Missouri, Sen. Kevin Cramer of North Dakota and Sen. Mike Braun of Indiana accused the social media giant of being biased against conservatives. no! biased against Repug ing LIES

    Both videos falsely claimed that “abortion is never medically necessary.”

    Three doctors
    authored a fact-check for Health Feedback, an organization that seeks to debunk misleading medical coverage.

    The fact-check deemed the video “inaccurate,” noting that

    “certain medical conditions such as placenta previa and HELLP syndrome can make abortion a necessary medical procedure in order to prevent the mother’s death.”

    Rose lashed out on Twitter, calling the doctors behind the fact-check
    liars and “abortionists.”

    Cruz and the other Republican senators cited these affiliations to complain to Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg that his social network was behind

    the “censorship” of conservatives

    and suggested that doctors who “perform abortions” are not qualified to discuss abortion.

    “No reasonable person would describe Grossman or Schickler as neutral or objective when it comes to issues of abortion,”

    the senators wrote of the doctors, But Rose's LIES are "objective" on abortion

    Repugs, Christian Taliban, pro-birth S have nothing but slander, lies, cheating to advance themselves and their causes.

    Anti-Choicers Are Suggesting People Continue Pregnancies That Could Kill Them

    Misinformation about life-threatening ectopic pregnancies is part of a campaign to argue that abortion is never medically necessary.

    Doctors are calling for people to consult with their physicians to deal with potentially deadly ectopic pregnancies instead of following the advice of an

    article published on the conservative website, The Federalist, on Monday, which claimed that procedures to save the lives of pregnant people were unnecessary.

    Federalist are now publishing MEDICAL LIES along with the rest of their LIES?

    Federalist correspondent Georgi Boorman also claims that EPs contribute to abortion rates, and

    demanded an end to all legal abortion, including for treatment of EP. "Abortion is never the answer," she writes.

    Trump Restrictions on Fetal Tissue Research Deal a Blow to Medical Science

    A new federal policy tied to anti-abortion politics will hamper potentially groundbreaking work

    a new Trump administration policy, announced last month by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), which

    ends some federally funded research that involves fetal tissue from elective abortions and

    puts stringent restrictions on the rest.

    The new policy eliminates all research at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) — the chief federal body on medical research — that uses fetal tissue from elective abortions.

    NIH scientists can use up the material they currently have, but are not allowed to acquire any new tissue.

    NIH-funded research at universities and other organizations that involves fetal tissue from elective abortions will also come under additional scrutiny.

    Investigators proposing new grants or seeking grant renewals that use this tissue will be subject to additional oversight.

    That process will include an ethics advisory board that will review each grant proposal and make recommendations about whether NIH should fund them.

    So a lot more broken or dead babies from congenital heart defects, by the pro-birth mob

    Trump condemned for moving to ‘roll back the clock’ as letter exposes his attempt to form anti-abortion UN coalition

    the Trump administration is pressuring U.N. member nations to join an international anti-abortion coalition.

    The letter, first reported by the Guardian and set to be presented Monday during a U.N. General Assembly meeting on universal health coverage,

    urges nations to oppose the creation of “a new international right to abortion.”

    “This letter just shows how they are trying to erode international consensus and roll back the clock for women and girls.”

    Abortion Rights Foes Use Indiana Fetal Remains Discovery for Political Gain

    The Trump administration and anti-choice lawmakers are using the case of Ulrich Klopfer to attack abortion providers as dangerous and unregulated.

    abortion rights foes to link Klopfer to state legislatures that have recently repealed abortion restrictions, and use the case

    to paint abortion care as unsafe and unregulated and

    conflating legal abortion with infanticide.

    Anti-LGBTQ Congressman Introduces Anti-Abortion Bill to Protect ‘Unborn Gay Children’




    https://rewire.news/article/2019/09/...-gay-children/

    So being LGBT is not a "choice", but is decided in the fetus?

    Closure of women's health clinics linked to lower cervical cancer screening and higher mortality

    Following the closure of nearly 100 women's health clinics across the United States from 2010 to 2013, fewer women were screened for cervical cancer, more women were diagnosed with advanced stages of the disease and mortality rates rose.

    Findings from a new analysis combining several nationwide datasets were presented at the 61st Annual Meeting of the American Society for Radiation Oncology (ASTRO).

    The data are troubling. Reducing the availability of cervical cancer screening has very real, negative consequences for women.

    Cervical cancer is largely preventable because of the wide availability of the HPV vaccine and screening that can detect precancerous lesions.

    The pressing issue now is to ensure that all women have access to screening."

    clinics closed between 2010 and 2013 due primarily to changes in funding structures (e.g., regulations for Title X funding) and the passage of laws that regulated standards at these clinics.

    "As these clinics closed over time, it appears that a fewer women were getting screened, and this trend appears to be associated with a greater number of women ultimately dying from cervical cancer,"

    Overall, cervical cancer survival rates improved in states without clinic closures

    but dropped in those with a reduction in the number of clinics.

    https://www.news-medical.net/news/20190926/Closure-of-womens-health-clinics-linked-to-lower-cervical-cancer-screening-and-higher-mortality.aspx

    the so-called pro-life evangelical so-called Christian Taliban don't care if poor women suffer and die from cancer (and venereal diseases not detected) as long as the poor women are forced to give birth for lack of contraception and abortion.

    Anti-Choice Activists Fighting a Losing Battle Against Medication Abortion

    Medication abortion is a gamechanger for pregnant people, particularly when other forms of abortion are difficult to access or even unavailable.

    With the recent news that almost 40 percent of the abortions in this country in 2017 were by pill rather than surgical procedure, now is a great time to appreciate the seemingly unstoppable revolution this medical advance has brought about.

    “We’re doing medication abortions with nurse practitioners all over the state, and it’s particularly important in the mountains.”

    patients in the region “can come in on the day the nurse practitioner is there, which is almost every day, and be taken care of.”

    SCOTUS delivered bad news for abortion access

    they’ve already announced they’ll take June Medical Services v. Gee, a case that tests the legal standard for access to abortion.

    the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals

    blatantly ignored precedent

    by ruling that a Louisiana law identical to one declared unconstitutional in the landmark Whole Woman’s Health v. Hellerstedt could take effect.

    That law threatens to close all but one clinic in the state.

    The Court could have corrected the Fifth Circuit’s mistake

    by clearly recognizing and respecting the precedent set in Whole Woman’s Health.

    By scheduling the case for argument, the question becomes

    whether the Court will adhere to or throw out the precedent set three years ago.

    -- rewire news email

    stare decisis, even very recent rulings?

    (misogynist Catholic) SCOTUS s say that, we're gonna kill Roe v Wade
