Not something Ive talked about a ton but like 1/4 people who become pregnant, I miscarried. I was racked with guilt wondering if I "did something" to "cause" it. If I didn't get enough rest or was too stressed. Under Georgia's new abortion law I could be facing jail time— Bridget Todd 💁🏿 (@BridgetMarie) May 8, 2019
Georgia's "pro-life" Republicans have passed a law that would subject a woman who self-terminates after six weeks to life imprisonment or capital punishment. https://t.co/vbBpfRzIgj @Slate pic.twitter.com/Djqn0LbLf6— Mark Joseph Stern (@mjs_DC) May 7, 2019
Under the new Georgia law, a woman who miscarries could be liable for second-degree murder. If prosecutors can prove that she is somehow responsible, she can be imprisoned for 30 years. pic.twitter.com/JFMMT0ttbA— Mark Joseph Stern (@mjs_DC) May 7, 2019
"1 in 4 women will have an abortion before age 45. That statistic sometimes surprises people, and maybe you're sitting there thinking, 'I don't know a woman who would have an abortion.' Well, you know me."— NARAL (@NARAL) May 9, 2019

Majority of men, despite being involved in 100% of unplanned pregnancies, say they “never or rarely” worry about them. 37% think affordable birth control for women makes a difference in their lives. This carelessness and ignorance is literally going jail and kill women #DoBetter https://t.co/35BAfc9Lti— Soraya Chemaly (@schemaly) May 8, 2019
There is an all out war on abortion, and we're letting it just happen before our eyes. I see women crying out, but men: where the fuck are you? https://t.co/Mr43zupIKL— marisa kabas (@MarisaKabas) April 25, 2019
Since abortion is outlawed in 5 states (I believe) at first heartbeat detection,— Millie (@Milliennial) April 21, 2019
child support should ALSO start at the same time, including required billing of 50% of the medical bills.
I wonder how many mens’ opinions would change when they actually had to take responsibility
One of the concerns raised about Taylor is that she moves frequently, 10 times since her older son was born. But she and her attorney argue that’s driven in part by her lack of resources. She hasn’t received child support, although Forbes paid for day care when she had the kids.

Ohioの他にGeorgia, Kentucky, Mississippiも『胎児の心音（ハートビート）法』を導入しており、さらに我らがSpursが本拠地を置くTexasなどいくつかの州でも導入に向けた動きがあるそう。

The rise of heartbeat bills in 2019 is a sign of where the abortion debate is today. A few years ago, such bans were considered too extreme even by some anti-abortion groups, said Rachel Sussman, the national director of state policy and advocacy at Planned Parenthood Action Fund. But with Donald Trump in the White House and Justice Brett Kavanaugh on the Supreme Court, abortion opponents around the country are eager to challenge Roe v. Wade. And banning abortion just six weeks into pregnancy may be a way to do that.

Georgia, which previously banned abortion after 20 weeks of pregnancy, is the fourth state to enact a six-week ban in 2019. Similar “heartbeat” bills are in the works in 10 other states — Missouri, Tennessee, Florida, Illinois, Louisiana, Maryland, Minnesota, New York, South Carolina and West Virginia — according to the Guttmacher Institute. A federal judge has already blocked Kentucky’s law. Other courts struck down similar laws that were recently enacted in Iowa and North Dakota.

It’s more than money, though. Pregnancy takes a toll on a woman’s body. It cuts into her career. Men don’t have to give up valuable billable hours to attend doctor’s visits. They don’t have the humiliation of puking into trash baskets in meetings.— listen to teachers (@CarynLonz) April 21, 2019
Money isn’t an equalizer.
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:— Jessica Valenti (@JessicaValenti) May 9, 2019
Melissa Ann Rowland of Utah was charged with murder after one of her twins was stillborn - because she refused a c-section. https://t.co/HZOQJxXNEf— Jessica Valenti (@JessicaValenti) May 9, 2019
Angela Carder was 27 years old, 26 weeks pregnant, and had cancer. She was forced to undergo a c-section to try to save the baby despite the risk to her health. They both died. https://t.co/ULulVhxfpe— Jessica Valenti (@JessicaValenti) May 9, 2019
Rennie Gibbs of Mississippi was 16 years old when she delivered a stillborn baby - she was indicted on charges of "depraved heart murder" after accusations that she used drugs https://t.co/lNThJG9Weq— Jessica Valenti (@JessicaValenti) May 9, 2019
I'll keep adding to this thread later, but the point is - women (mostly women of color, immigrant & low-income women) are already being punished using anti-choice laws. And this is while abortion is LEGAL. Imagine what would happen if Roe were overturned.— Jessica Valenti (@JessicaValenti) May 9, 2019
