I mean, it's also not a bad law, so...
What is actually bad about it? Also, the democrates aren't my team.
Basically the entire world thinks it's a bad law as even the most progressive European countries don't have laws like this.
If an R law would allow something like 1 in a million bad thing being allowed to happen, it's the end of the world here. The law literally allows women to get abortions a minute before giving birth. And the response to that is basically "well, nobody does that anyway".
Yet here you unironically call a woman a 'pregnant person'. So looks like just for an instant you got over it and understood the fluidity of language.
Also, at one point in time the word 'woman' and verbal language as a whole didn't exist and humans were still getting pregnant.
It's just one of the many things that get changed to not "offend" some super small minority of people and it doesn't even make sense to change it to begin with.
I'm surprised you didn't notice sooner. Phoenix has been spouting the whole, "masks don't do anything"/anti-mask rhetoric since the very start of the pandemic. I choose not to talk to a man that lacks so much empathy and spreads hurtful (lack of) knowledge on all of humanity. Yet it is more than happy to support jackasses who don't give a rip about anyone, but themselves.
That's a lie, I have messages being for masks at the start right here on this forum when everyone was against them. Sorry, that I want proof something works after about 1 year of doing something. You were also told to wash your hands and use hand sanitizer and that doesn't work.
Okay, so you don't believe trans men are men and you don't respect gender identity. Can you stop pretending you do in the trans athletes thread now?
Also to paraphrase the OP from multiple threads, you could just choose not to be bothered by it y'know.
OMFG, SEX is different than GENDER.
I literally said why I posted the story, just pointing out the hypocrisy. You think I actually care about this law?
Once again, Phoenix posts expecting everybody to agree with him only to be sorely disappointed that the majority of this forum is more leftward than he pretends to be.
Honestly, we need more laws like this. The Republicans are so determined to roll back a century of progress, we need to make it harder for them to succeed.
Again, even the most progressive countries in Europe don't have this kind of law. I posted pointing out the hypocrisy, I don't really care about people's stances on the law. I'm pretty sure if you asked the majority of people if an 8-month abortion is moral, they'd say "no" even if you got a whole group of progressives. It's like how you all are upset up Florida's Parental Rights law that does nothing. Guess what? Most democrats agree with the law. Maybe if you get out your echo chambers you'd notice that.
Again, they are both on the same team. The very things (macro level things) you're so against, the Ds are just as for it as the Rs. What progress are the Rs rolling back? You do realize minorities have more opportunities in red states right? It's why black people have been doing a reverse migration to the south the last 20 or so years.
Based on the article this law doesn't do anything but prevent future limitations imposed by the federal government.
While I personally object to late term abortions (6m+) I wonder if those actually occur (often)? Instead of focusing on time limits they should make work of accessibility. Not sure if that's an issue in Colorado but it seems that's a typical tactic to reduce abortions, just make it unnecessarily difficult to perform.
That was kinda the point of posting, it's a law that really does nothing much similar to other R laws, yet the R laws get all this outrage.
I'm not very pro-abortion but I'm also not for laws aggressively limiting abortions either. There's plenty of situations where I feel abortion is morally OK and making sure abortions only happen in those situations just wouldn't be feasible in the 1st place anyway and putting women in that situation to have to prove something is pretty shitty and demeaning.
So what happens if a woman legally changes her gender to a man without needing a full medical transition, and then becomes pregnant? It means, theoretically, he may be denied an abortion in a state that was supposed to ensure its access.
Legal wording is, after all, really important.
Sex and gender are two different things.
You guys are missing that he probably thinks abortions being legal is regression. We're all slipping from God into hedonism etc.
Nope, I'm like the least religious person in the world. Read my response to Generals.
