As of July 1, 2022, 16 states had banned or made significant moves to ban abortions. Of these, 5 had dusted off centuries-old abortion laws. The figures are changing too fast for me to present them. The internet can tell you better than I can.
The question of contraception has recently been raised. I’m wondering at what level the curbing of rights at proseutorial levels will come to a rest:
___various stages of pregnancy?
___out of state medical prescriptions or operations?
___no rape or incest exceptions
___no life of the mother exceptions
___no use of contraceptions including i.u.d.‘s
___prosecution for all miscarriages
___no hysterectomies or tubal ligations
___no vasectomies? Whoah! I wouldn’t bet on that. There’s a difference between making and baking?
I’m just waiting for them to come yank out my IUD! Oh the horror. Did you know that I could not get my birth control when I had to stay in the hospital? This was before I had my IUD. They told me I would have to have someone go to my house, pick up my meds and bring it in for me! I was not using it as a contraceptive, but to treat the very illness I was in the hospital for. You can imagine I lost my mind a little bit…but I’m just a hysterical woman.

There are a lot of wild rumors out there but the Supremes merely returned the power to the states and the people, women included. No need to panic.
I’m disappointed you removed my comment, Nan.
I didn’t remove anybody’s comment, least of all yours. I just don’t know how this thing works very well. Tell me why you think I removed your comment??! And what was your comment. I think need a co-blogger or two.
No problem, Nan. I checked back to see if you/anyone responded but didn’t find my comment. I said something about SCOTUS returning power to the states and the people and that we should not panic 🙂
What are your thoughts now, as a number of states have responded?
