New Study Shows Anti-Choice Policies Leading to Widespread Arrests of and Forced Interventions on Pregnant Women
This shite is so fucked up. I can’t fucking believe this shite.
•A woman in Utah gave birth to twins. When one was stillborn, she was arrested and charged with criminal homicide based on the claim that her decision to delay cesarean surgery was the cause of the stillbirth.
•After a hearing that lasted less than a day, a court issued an order requiring a critically-ill pregnant woman in Washington, D.C. to undergo cesarean surgery over her objections. Neither she nor her baby survived.
•A judge in Ohio kept a woman imprisoned to prevent her from having an abortion.
•A woman in Oregon who did not comply with a doctor’s recommendation to have additional testing for gestational diabetes was subjected to involuntary civil commitment. During her detention, the additional testing was never performed.
•A Louisiana woman was charged with murder and spent approximately a year in jail before her counsel was able to show that what was deemed a murder of a fetus or newborn was actually a miscarriage that resulted from medication given to her by a health care provider.
•In Texas, a pregnant woman who sometimes smoked marijuana to ease nausea and boost her appetite gave birth to healthy twins. She was arrested for delivery of a controlled substance to a minor.
•A doctor in Wisconsin had concerns about a woman’s plans to have her birth attended by a midwife. As a result, a civil court order of protective custody for the woman’s fetus was obtained. The order authorized the sheriff’s department to take the woman into custody, transport her to a hospital, and subject her to involuntary testing and medical treatment.
Who could have seen this coming?

Yesterday, I saw some this, live (and ate an arseton of dirt in the Motionless in White mosh pit).
Highlights of the day, for me, were the Motionless in White set (and, as mentioned, brutal fucking mosh pit), and John 5's guitar solo during the Zombie set, meeting the Butcher Babies (pix later), and hanging with Chris Warner (drummer for Butcher Babies) after the show.
Also at the Rockstar Mayhem Festival were Born of Osiris, Huntress, Children of Bodom,

Longest run since I started again,
and I absolutely can’t believe my pace!
I was running 11min/mil 3 months ago,
and today, I finally got under 9 min.,
on my longest run in probably 15 years.
TODAY IS A GOOD RUNNING DAY!
