Lapointe: Abortion rights still enjoy Michigan momentum

Last year, abortion rights were torn from the U.S. Constitution by a right-wing Supreme Court packed with religious fundamentalists by former President Donald Trump.

Months later, however, Michigan progressives won a major battle against the extremists when they passed an amendment — Proposal 3 — to the state constitution to guarantee a woman’s right to choose.

But, this year, additional abortion rights in Michigan are threatened by those opposing the “Reproductive Health Act,” a package of 11 bills in the state legislature. These foes seek to maintain unnecessary regulations designed to discourage choice.

Nevertheless, on the national level, the Michigan momentum for abortion rights through voting is rippling through other states, including neighbors like Ohio and Wisconsin.

Democrats Brace For The Biggest Abortion Supreme Court Case Since Dobbs

It’s very likely that the Supreme Court will take up a major mifepristone case this term after the Biden administration and a manufacturer of the drug asked the justices to hear it late last week.

The case infamously originated in Judge Matthew Kacsmaryk’s Amarillo courtroom, where he ruled to revoke the Food and Drug Administration’s authorization of mifepristone wholesale.


@georgetakei Also, the Republican Party* thinks the way to make forced-birtherism (reproductive slavery) appealing is to find a nicer name for it. People aren't buying their bullshit.

* (I refuse to use the conventional, convenient initialism. There's nothing "Grand" about the party, at least ever since the Southern Strategy. As someone observed, the erstwhile party of Lincoln has done a 180° and become the party of John Wilkes Booth.)

@ZhiZhu What Confedered senator Tom Davis apparently meant to say:
“At some point in time, the right of the white state to see the unborn white child born does take precedent over the white woman’s right to her body.”

Now, as we all may know the former slaveholder states always had their militant issues with the Reconstruction Amendments to the United States Constitution.

Nonetheless, quite some time ago the then not FedSocuted Supreme Court of the United States held in its 7-2 ruling, that
"State criminal abortion laws... violate the Due Process Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment, which protects against state action the right to privacy, including a woman's qualified right to terminate her pregnancy."
And neither SCOTUS nor single (or conspiring, insurrectionary) states can invalidate the Due Process Clause, the Fourteenth Amendment or the human right of women to bodily self-determination, for the racist sake of white "Volksgemeinschaft".

"Simulated patient" survey

In the study, the Center for Reproductive Rights, Oklahoma Call for Reproductive Justice and Physicians for Human Rights surveyed 34 hospitals around the state. Researchers found that most hospitals could not provide any information about their policies or procedures or explain what support would be provided to doctors who determine that an abortion is necessary to save a patient's life.

To conduct the research, several young women called 34 hospitals in the state with a script, saying they were pregnant for the first time, trying to decide which Oklahoma hospital to go to for care, and wanting to understand the hospital's policies and processes for providing abortions if pregnancy complications arose. "It's called the 'secret shopper' methodology – we called it a 'simulated patient' methodology," says Dr. Michele Heisler, professor at the University of Michigan and medical director of Physicians for Human Rights, who is one of the study's authors.

"What we hadn't anticipated is what we found – the confusion, the contradictory statements, the misinformation," Heisler says. "Three of the 34 hospitals said they'd just never provide abortions," for example, even though there are exceptions written into the laws. Four hospitals said doctors needed to go through an approval process to be able to provide a medically necessary abortion, and 14 hospitals provided unclear answers about whether there was such an approval process.

"The molar pregnancy Jaci Statton had would never become a baby. It was cancerous, though.

Text from article:
The molar pregnancy Jaci Statton had would never become a baby. It was cancerous, though.

At the last hospital in Oklahoma she went to during her ordeal last month, Statton says staff told her and her husband that she could not get a surgical abortion until she became much sicker.

"They were very sincere; they weren't trying to be mean," Statton, 25, says. "They said, 'The best we can tell you to do is sit in the parking lot, and if anything else happens, we will be ready to help you. But we cannot touch you unless you are crashing in front of us or your blood pressure goes so high that you are fixing to have a heart attack.'"

Oklahoma has three overlapping abortion bans, with different and sometimes contradictory definitions and exceptions. A study published Tuesday along with a commentary in the Lancet medical journal shows hospitals all over Oklahoma are struggling to interpret the laws and create policies that comply with the state's abortion bans. The resulting confusion is having dangerous consequences for women like Statton.

Enslaved women forced to reproduce

"African midwives, imported and enslaved as early as the 1600s, attended to the birthing needs of the enslaved and enslavers until the beginning of the 19th century.

But, after 1808, enslavers in the United States could no longer legally import enslaved people.

With this shift, enslavers stepped up the forced breeding of enslaved women. White men raped the Black women and girls they enslaved, and then enslaved the children born from those rapes.
White men also forced the Black women and Black men they enslaved to have sex with one another to generate more babies, who would be born into slavery.

This was a systemic way of ensuring enslaved women bore more children, which would increase profits for their enslavers.

Because the Black midwives and enslaved women often were blamed for or suspected of using birth control and abortions to resist forced pregnancy and the enslavement of their offspring, enslavers turned increasingly away from midwives and to white male doctors to figure out why nearly half of enslaved infants were stillborn or died within their first year of life and why so many enslaved women were infertile..."

Some sanity ...

The board that regulates medical practice did not go as far as Democrats in the legislature had wanted, which was to consider it automatic “unprofessional conduct” if a physician prescribes the reversal pill, but it comes close to an outright ban. It took deliberate care to add language into its rules to make clear that the board considers the practice unethical.
