With Roe v. Wade overturned , exceptions to abortion bans — such as in the case of rape or incest, or for a pregnant person’s safety — are expected to be the only avenue to getting abortions in many states. But meeting the qualifications for those asterisks to the bans can be complex and traumatizing, experts say. For starters, exceptions for rape and incest are uncommon. The Guttmacher Institute , a research organization that supports reproductive rights, anticipates 26 states certain or likely to ban abortion now that there are no federal protections. Among those 26 states, there are about 41 abortion bans total, with some states having more than one ban, it said. Just 10 of the 41 bans have exceptions for rape and incest. In the states that do have rape and incest exceptions, requirements vary. Many, such as Utah, require victims of sexual assault to file a police report. Given that more than 2 out of 3 sexual assaults go unreported, according to the Rape, Abuse … [Read more...] about Post-Roe, exceptions to state abortion bans won’t be easy to acquire

A grandmother provided help and care for a pizza delivery man who was shot several times Saturday evening in Joppa, Maryland. According to a release issued by the Harford County Sheriff's Office, officers received a report of a shooting. They found the victim, 24-year-old Da'Shawn Betterson, in a townhouse with several gunshot wounds to his lower body. Officials provided medical aid to Betterson, who was airlifted to a trauma center for non-life-threatening injuries. CBS affiliate station WJZ reported that Karen Rollins ordered dinner for her grandchildren. "I looked outside," she told the outlet.

She took him into her home and called the police, who guided her through how to provide medical attention until officials arrived.

In the wake of the Supreme Court overturning Roe v. Wade , Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) has been tossing out ideas for how President Joe Biden could protect abortion access, including opening abortion clinics on federal lands. But that wouldn’t be an easy fix, explains Leah Litman, an assistant professor at the University of Michigan Law School and co-host of Strict Scrutiny podcast. “The Hyde Amendment is a provision of federal law that limits the federal government’s ability to spend federal money on abortions, except in limited cases of rape or incest or where necessary to save the life or health of the mother. So one possible thing the Supreme Court might do is say, ‘Actually, the federal government can’t do any of this because they’re spending money in violation of the Hyde Amendment,’” she tells Molly Jong-Fast on this episode of The New Abnormal podcast. She then goes into the second roadblock for AOC’s plan, calling it “more troubling.” Subscribe to The … [Read more...] about AOC Called for Abortion Clinics on Federal Land.

Democrats are betting that anger over the reversal of Roe v. Wade will take down Republicans in the 2022 midterms . This is a plausible, if desperate , hope. The theory is that the “winning” side of such a long struggle will now be pacified, while the “losing” side is energized and outraged. And abortion rights—with some limits— remain broadly popular on a national scale . The political calculus over the right’s biggest victory in a half-century is so scrambled that even former President Donald Trump is reportedly worried about this . But Republicans have a secret weapon: Democrats’ penchant for progressive overreach . We are already seeing signs at multiple levels—among activists, elite celebrities, and politicians. It raises the question: Could there be a backlash against the backlash? Let’s start with the most serious: activist overreach. Since May’s leak of Justice Samuel Alito’s draft opinion in the Dobbs case, pro-life crisis pregnancy centers … [Read more...] about Will Raging Liberals Cause an Anti-Democrat Backlash?
There are a number of gender imbalances when it comes to healthcare . Not only are women less likely to see their doctor if they have a health complaint than men, but studies have shown that their symptoms are more likely to be disregarded or misdiagnosed when they are in the GP's surgery. This gender-based inequality carries through to sexual health , where both biological and cognitive biases can make it more difficult for women to be tested and treated than men with the same illness. A situation made worse by the continued overrepresentation of men in clinical research and trials for such diseases. Most sexually transmitted infections can be treated or neutralised by medication, but left undiagnosed many will cause more severe complications in women than in men - with ectopic pregnancy , sterilisation, and even blindness as potential side-effects if left untreated.
