Limited Abortion Access Endangers South Texas Women

One year after Wendy Davis filibustered HB 2, the abortion restrictions are unsurprisingly affecting women of color and low-income women disproportionately.

Last week, The Atlantic reported on the rise of unsupervised medical abortion performed by women in South Texas using misoprostol purchased at flea markets.

Misoprostol, which is available over-the-counter in Mexico, can be used as an abortifacient during the first trimester of pregnancy.

After the omnibus abortion legislation passed in 2013, women in Texas seeking a medical abortion must endure four doctor's visits and a 24-hour waiting period to take the pills.

1. All I can say is...

this shit is really pissing me off (more than my usual pissed off).

I'm about to go HULK on these miscreants.

All 5ft.2in, 100lb. of old age rage. LOL

disclaimer: I'm really a pacifist. I have been known to put a hurting on some, without ever raising a hand.

2. Don't worry malokvale.

We still have Skittles and we KNOW that she can kick some ass, INDEED. I'm glad that I'm in her good graces because I don't want any boot print bruises on my butt.

3. I do not know if I am in INDEED...

in her good graces or ready for an ass kicking.

I do believe, between the two of us, the world is in for a state of hurt.

Me with my obvious charm (choke), and Skittles with her brute force.

Please don't be too hard on me Skittles. I don't need any more bruises on my butt.

You are a delight as usual TT.
