LPJL DAILY TAKEDOWN – OCTOBER 18TH, 2017
Posted on October 18, 2017
OK you HAVE to read this. The latest defective product hot off the assembly line at White House alternative factory is that the NAFTA agreement causes increased abortion rates—which is backed up by… the fact that they said it. It reminds you of the time Mike Huckabee said “abortion causes illegal immigration” Research tells them that everything they hate causes something else they hate. It’s called science.
Turns out repro rights are like anything else—it’s all about location, location, location. And a new study from the National Institute on Reproductive Health on the best and worst places to have a uterus in America says if Jacksonville is the WORST! Also on the suck-list are places from Phoenix, AZ to Harford, CT (!) so it can be bad ANYWHERE. Hey, but respect to LA, NY, and SF for kicking ass in the top slots. And Austin gets special love for ranking high while still dealing with the bullcrap Texas lays on them. But there’s need for improvement everywhere. Check out this article in Quartz to see how bad you’ve got it.
SHOCKER! New Analysis (and Your Own Eyes) Show Family Research Council Dirtbags Heart White Supremacy!
Rewire performs a public service by adding some scientific analysis to the blaringly obvious notion that the extremist Family Research Council shares tender feels with neo-Nazis and White Supremacists. These scumsacks are Nazi—er, mean nasty—opponents of abortion rights. Basically, they have built their entire brand screaming about the so-called abortion holocaust, while joining forces with the supporters of real Holocaust!
Donald Trump’s DOJ just kicked all of America in its collective uterus. They settled with an ugly bunch of 70 litigants who were suing over Obamacare provisions to let women control their own bodies. And with his expansion of these creepy religious and morality exemptions, Trump just handed that control to even more holy trollers. As the National Review blared: THIS IS WHY they elected Trump! Spoiler alert: this fucking article is stomach churning.
Here’s a must-read from NPR in Wisconsin about moves that would virtually destroy OB-GYN training at the University of Wisconsin just so anti-choice nutters can shut down abortion training. It’s part of a scary long-term trend that you need to read about here too. These snake oil salesmen are sneaky, they know that nobody can get abortions if nobody knows how to perform them. They think we aren’t paying attention, let’s prove them wrong.
