MO Takes the Poll Position in Culture Wars/Public Health Crisis

Your rapist’s baby is a future Patriot, ladies!

Welcome to our bright and shiny future: CBS tells us… that home of the newly wed and nearly dead, Missouri is effectively banning abortion by regulating the clinics that offer the service out of bidness.

St. Louis, Missouri — The last remaining abortion clinic in Missouri says it expects to be shut down this week, effectively ending legal abortion in the state.

In a statement Tuesday, Planned Parenthood said Missouri’s health department is “refusing to renew” its annual license to provide abortion in the state. If the license is not renewed by May 31, Missouri would become the first state without a functioning abortion clinic since 1973 when Roe v. Wade was decided.

On May 20, the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services notified Planned Parenthood of three issues that could impact license renewal, according to documents reviewed by CBS News and provided by Planned Parenthood.
On May 22, Planned Parenthood said it would address two of them: adjusting who at the clinic provided the state-mandated counseling and adding an additional pelvic exam for abortion patients.

But it said a third request was out of its control. According to Planned Parenthood, the health department said it was investigating “deficient practices,” and needed to interview seven physicians who provide care at the clinic. Planned Parenthood said it could offer interviews only with two who are its employees. The other five physicians working at the facility are residents in training and not employed by Planned Parenthood, a spokesperson for the clinic said via email on Tuesday. The state has indicated that the result of those interviews could be “board review” in addition to “criminal proceedings,” the spokesperson said. The medical residents declined to be interviewed for the state’s investigation.

Declining to be interviewed, all things considered, sounds like self preservation. You know some Xristian Xrazie will dox those doctors-in-residence and the hunting season will start, and there are no limits on how many the theocrats can bag.

    Hello TG. I wonder how these people can use the bible to justify these out right lies and known distortions and not feel they have violated the very doctrines in the book they are claiming means everything to them. Those mental gymnastics are olympics worthy. Hugs

      Scottie –

      If Jeebus himself showed up, the Xristians would be arm-wrestling each other to see who gets the honor to pound in the last nail.

      The MO legislature and governor have decided to legislate to make fundamentalist Xistianity the MO state religion and the US Constitution be damned. Also too, they just effectively overturned Roe vs. Wade in the state. Yes, I know they just passed a new restrictive abortion law but no woman can go anywhere legal in MO to actually get one within those restrictions so effectively they’ve nullified the decision. This closure needs to be challenged in the courts.

        Hello Astamari. I just read this morning that Louisiana is trying to pass a constitutional amendment in the state constitution to ban abortion. Every person interviewed claimed their Christian religion as the reason. They won’t be happy until their religion is mandatory for everyone. Hugs

    Why is it that these draconian laws are always spearheaded by middle-aged & boomer INCELs who no one calls out for their gross preoccupation with the babeze that starts to look like pedophilia?

    Just connecting some dots here – let’s see what I can come up with, conspiracy-theory-wise:

    Having a miscarriage,or traveling out of state to obtain a LEGAL abortion is now a felony in many of these southern states.
    OK, got it.
    And in theses same states, convicted felons can no longer vote, according to state law, and many of these women are poor, and even of the black persuasion, and they tend to vote for Democrats.

    Hmmm……..I might be onto something here.

      Hello Dennis. Is it legal to prosecute a person doing a legal act in one state when they cross into a state where that act is illegal? Such as in California weed is legal. If a person from California goes to Texas, can they be prosecuted in Texas even if they do not use weed while in Texas? Hugs

        Hi, Scottie –
        These bills that contain an “interstate conviction clause” are demonstrably unconstitutional for that very reason, among many, many others. It’s why you don’t see anyone convicted for participating in, or performing acts that are illegal in one state, but not another, or all the rest.
        Something to do with the 10th Amendment, and powers that Congress has in regards to interstate commerce, although there’s nothing commercial going on here, except for who pays for the abortion, be it the individual, or an insurance company.

      • No. Congress has authority over ‘Commerce between the various states’ under Article 1 of the US constuitution and the courts have long ruled that this alone grants congress the right to do things like this. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Commerce_Clause

        Laws regarding drugs involve possession, not usage, so no Texas cannot prosecute you for smpoking weed in California, then entering Texas with THC in your system (some states have tried, though, to creatively claim ‘having it in your bloodstream’ == ‘posession’ but that hasn’t worked because they cannot produce the marijuana they claim you ‘possess’ in court.

        Hello brucedesertrat. So the Georgia bill that makes it illegal to go to another state and have an abortion or come to the state after having one is unconstitutional even if Roe V Wade is overturned? Hugs

        BDR – I’m not sure that getting healthcare out of state is commerce. In fact, I think that is part of the Republican Healthcare plan is buying healthcare insurance out of state. You know, part of their Randian dream that the invisible hand of the market will be the ultimate factor in driving down healthcare costs, because the market is always rational. /snark
