In the abortion debate, when does life begin?

Washington (CNN)A federal judge blocked a Mississippi law on Friday that forbids abortion after the detection of a fetal heartbeat, as early as six weeks into a pregnancy.

In issuing a preliminary injunction, Judge Carlton Reeves said the law "threatens immediate harm to women's rights, especially considering most women do not seek abortions services until after six weeks."
"Allowing the law to take effect would force the clinic to stop providing most abortion care," wrote Reeves, adding that "by banning abortions after the detection of a fetal heartbeat, the law prevents a woman's free choice, which is central to personal dignity and autonomy."

The law was set to take effect in July.

3. This was expected and intended ....

This Mississippi Legislature expected and intended that a judge was do something to invalidate the law, which enables the Wire-Hanger crowd to appeal the case, ultimately, to the US Supreme Court, where they hope Beerkeg Brett and the others will somehow overturn Roe v. Wade.

And, no, I don't know how to prevent this outcome.

6. This exactly.

This is part of the plan. There are a couple of anti-abortion laws about to hit the books that the Evangelicals hope will trigger a SCOTUS challenge to put Roe v. Wade at risk.

9. We Don't Have to Imagine the Consequences of Abortion Bans.


We Just Have to Look to the Past

http://time.com/5589993/alabama-abortion-law-history/

Once that wave of 19th century abortion bans went into effect, police and prosecutors threatened, arrested, interrogated, investigated and occasionally prosecuted women for the crime of abortion. Police and doctors routinely questioned women who miscarried to determine if they’d had an abortion. If the patient refused to answer, the doctor might refuse lifesaving treatment for the complications that can follow abortions when the procedure is poorly performed.

11. How do they know a women has miscarried?

Been wondering about that. I guess they could raid clinic records, but there's not going to be a record of a woman having a miscarriage at home.
