Trump abortion restrictions effective immediately

Source: AP

WASHINGTON — Taxpayer-funded family planning clinics must stop referring women for abortions immediately, the Trump administration said Monday, declaring it will begin enforcing a new regulation hailed by religious conservatives and denounced by medical organizations and women’s rights groups.

The head of a national umbrella group representing the clinics said the administration is following “an ideological agenda” that could disrupt basic health care for many low-income women.

Ahead of a planned conference Tuesday with the clinics, the Health and Human Services Department formally notified them that it will begin enforcing the ban on abortion referrals, along with a requirement that clinics maintain separate finances from facilities that provide abortions. Another requirement that both kinds of facilities cannot be under the same roof would take effect next year.

The rule is widely seen as a blow against Planned Parenthood, which provides taxpayer-funded family planning and basic health care to low-income women, as well as abortions that must be paid for separately. The organization is a mainstay of the federally funded family planning program and it has threatened to quit over the issue.

2. Trump couldn't care less about abortion personally

It‘s just that low income women won‘t kiss his feet for allowing them their rights. Religious whackos WILL kiss his feet and cheer him for denying those rights to others, and it‘s the cheers he‘s after.

5. Not good....

Oligarchy headed to Fascist

Governing by decree is how it is accomplished.

Why do you think McTurtle and the other 62 co-conspirators say nothing.
They can't - it would break the system.

8. The lying Putin funded Christisn Evangilicals and Catholics

Finally got them a fat, lazy and ignorant puppet to institute their stupidity.

Because in their magical fantasy world, that fetus has a human soul even though it has a tail.

In their magical universe, even though their rule book clearly has no problem with abortion or helping others or incest or slavery, the fetus with the tail is more important than the woman with the womb.

12. Lifted from later in the article

The Trump administration’s policy echoes a Reagan-era regulation that barred clinics from even discussing abortion with women. It never went into effect as written, although the Supreme Court ruled it was appropriate.

14. Making ignoring the majority an E-Sport? (R)

Just woke up and this news just invites the snarky.



Almost expect a video game sim to come out soon:

Advanced Senator Sim with (R) (I) and (D) DLCs available!

Latest DLC: A Mitch with improved attitude sliders so players if they choose can possibly see what our lives might be like without his obstruction, and now self-destruct random mode so occasionally he will be replaced with 1 of 5 random made up assholes, including get this, if you buy within 666 secs and swear you're (R) at our agents at 1-800-I-WANT-ASS! then that elusive WORSE than McConnell replacement, named Blackface Shitler will be your special #2.

New DLC for Diaper Deathmatch coming SOONish!

Batteries are not included and proprietary so expect to pay those very low and fair government prices!

Small discount for orange men with small hands and debatable teleprompter reading skills.

Transparency mode sold separately for modest sum of your soul and intellect.

*Game currently broken in its current state, but the devs are not to be held to account even though this is their mess and the lame excuses and finger pointing are at nearly above whisper threat levels!

*May contain malware, viruses, dialog that misrepresents the truth (aka lie mode), and/or generic bad vibes and possible feelings of woe.

*Warning playing Advanced Senator Sim maybe hazardous to your health and the state of California warns that it can lead to pleasure, dancing and a bad attitude in the presence of politicians who have forgotten who they serve?

Current expected release date is 1/21/21 and version 2.0 expected a week later with all new patches, and rumor of a playable Kellyanne and noose mini-games!

Act now for FREE BONUS of 1 pose "Pence" action figures that didn't sell during the discounted dump off of last weeks failed Advanced V.P. Sim.

Please add your requests in replies, the world is watching!

Yours truly,

Spike "Down With O.P.P." Nothingberger
Lead Dev, Orange Rapists United LLC, pronounced RAP-ists!

That game might do well in this climate?

17. Politicians have NO business insinuating themselves between a patient and the doctor.

There is NOT ONE law ANYWHERE in this nation that interferes with men and their MDs.

There is NOT ONE law ANYWHERE in this nation that places restrictions on what men can and cannot do with their reproductive health.

See this for what it is : A WAR ON WOMEN. These religious freaks will not be happy until ALL birth control methods are prohibited by law. It's all about controlling women.

When the pendulum swings back - and it always does - there's going to be Hell to pay.
