This is another angry uterus-related post. March 24, 2012

Posted by Erin Ptah in News Roundup.

Doonesbury pulls no punches in covering the latest abortion-restricting amendments.

A physician expresses some anonymous outrage, and urges zir fellows to act as the last line of defense against patients.

Kansas wants to levy a sales tax on abortions. No exceptions. After all, why raise taxes on the 1% when you can tax rape survivors whose pregnancies might kill them?

They also, along with Arizona, are pushing for doctors to be allowed to hide medical information from their pregnant patients, and be shielded from malpractice lawsuits if the women have health complications as a result. Although, take heart: they can be sued if the woman dies!

On the flip side, there are also laws compelling doctors to compel unnecessary information into their pregnant patients’ heads. This author, whose child if it survived to term would have been brain-damaged and in constant pain, makes what must have been the hardest decision of her life, and every doctor she works with apologizes for being legally compelled to hurt her before they can help her.
