HRW raps U.S. abortion regulations
NEW YORK, Oct. 30 (UPI) -- Human Rights Watch said Monday laws in some U.S. states and their abortion regulations affect women's right to have a safe and legal abortion.

"The mounting obstacles to abortion services include in some states a legal requirement to provide medically inaccurate information as part of obligatory pre-abortion counseling," said the global rights group.

It said some state regulations compel doctors and nurses to say that abortion can lead to breast cancer and that fetuses feel pain throughout the pregnancy, adding both claims are scientifically unfounded.

"There is a direct assault on women's right to safe abortion through deliberate misinformation," said Marianne Mollmann with Human Rights Watch's women's rights division.

The tide is turning... you can't always wave the finger at China and the "bad people" on the other side of the globe without watching those human rights yourselves! (and I'm not even mentioning torture here)

Every human being has to have the right to decide about its own body.
From the craddle to the grave!
If I don't want to have that small knot of stem cells inside my womb I need to have the right to have it removed.

And that's speaking as a man who can only try to understand what's going on in a pregnant woman.


** Why do the unborn and the braindead have more rights (represented by the state) than the people who actually live? **

2. It's going to take a lot of work
to turn around all of the damage that the ReThuglicans did to us.
