    While liberal states like New York are promising to receive abortion-seeking patients from other states with open arms if Roe v. Wade is overturned, Texas lawmakers are pushing for a bill to ban residents looking to end their pregnancy in another state from doing so.  Though it's unsurprising the 6-3 conservative majority on the high court would look to overturn Roe, a leaked Supreme Court draft opinion last week revealed a majority of justices are in favor of overturning the 1973 landmark abortion case sent shockwaves across the nation and spurred local lawmakers into action.  Here's a look at what states have been doing in anticipation of abortion rights being tossed back to the states:  Texas  Texas already bans abortions at six weeks, bypassing Roe by allowing private residents, not the state, to sue those who aid and abet anyone in receiving the procedure. But it also has a 'trigger law' on the books that would make performing an abortion a felony within 30 days if Roe was overturned.  Unlike the current law which is civilly enforced, the trigger law...
    "I'm your employer, and I asked you if you're pregnant, I can't do that," Burns noted, according to the outlet. "I can't ask you if you're thinking about getting pregnant. I can't ask you if you got STDs or HIV. I can't ask any of those private medical questions, but somehow it's alright to terminate people's employment because I didn't take this emergency-use-only vaccine. This is ridiculous."
    Pregnant and breastfeeding women have slower immune responses to the first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine than those who aren't mothers, a new study suggests. Researchers compared 95 mothers-to-be and new mothers to 16 non-pregnant women, all of whom were fully vaccinated.  They found that expecting and lactating women had fewer antibodies than other women after the initial dose, but their levels returned to 'normal' following the second shot. The team - from Massachusetts General Hospital, Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Harvard Medical School in the Boston area - says the findings show how important it is that pregnant and breastfeeding women receive the second dose on time to lower their risk of serious illness and death from the virus. A new study compared 84 pregnant women, 31 breastfeeding women and 16 non-pregnant women, all of whom were fully vaccinated against Covid.

    Many women that were planning to have a child before the COVID-19 pandemic struck in spring 2020 have put those plans on pause, a new study finds. Researchers from New York University (NYU) Langone Medical Center surveyed 1,179 New York City women from April to August 2020 on their pregnancy intentions before and during the pandemic. They found that more than one-third of women who were thinking about becoming pregnant before the pandemic started have dropped those plans. Half of women who were actively attempting to get pregnant before Covid are no longer trying either, and some may drop their intentions to have another baby entirely. While many speculated the pandemic would cause a 'baby boom' due to people spending more time at home, early data has found the opposite - and that birth rates across the U.S. instead fell. Almost half of women that were attempting to get pregnant before the pandemic are no longer making that attempt, and one third of women thinking about it have dropped those plans An expected pandemic baby boom never materialized, and...
    President Biden issued a statement criticizing the Supreme Court's decision in a 5-4 vote not to block Texas's heartbeat bill that prohibits most abortions after a fetal heartbeat has been detected, or as early as six weeks into pregnancy. "The Supreme Court's ruling overnight is an unprecedented assault on a woman's constitutional rights under Roe v. Wade, which has been the law of the land for almost fifty years," Biden said in the statement. The law, which took effect Sept. 1, includes an exception for medical emergencies. While the law does involve criminal penalties, it allows individuals to lodge a civil action against those who conduct or induce an abortion in violation of the law and against those who knowingly participate in activity that "aids or abets the performance or inducement of an abortion," which has been conducted or induced in breach of the law. Claimants who succeed will receive statutory damages of at least $10,000 as well as costs and attorney's fees. "One reason I became the first president in history to create a Gender Policy Council...
    WHITE House press secretary Jen Psaki on Thursday snapped at a male reporter's question on abortion, telling him "you’ve never faced those choices." Psaki had been responding to a question on Joe Biden's statement on the Texas abortion law being at odds with his Catholic faith when she made the comments. 2White House press secretary Jen Psaki on Thursday snapped at a male reporter's question on abortionCredit: EPA 2She had been responding to a question on Joe Biden's response to the Texas abortion law being at odds with his Catholic faithCredit: C-Span She told the journalist: "He believes that it's a woman's right, it's a woman's body and it's her choice. "I know you’ve never faced those choices nor have you ever been pregnant. "But for women out there who have faced those choices this is an incredibly difficult thing." The Supreme Court this week refused to block a Texas law which bans most abortions and heralds the most restrictive measures in the United States. That's increased tensions across the political spectrum on an already divisive issue. Following the SCOTUS decision Biden...
    White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki dispassionately dismissed a question about President Joe Biden’s stance on abortion rights given his Catholic faith following a stunning new law in Texas that effectively ends legal abortions in that state. The question came from Owen Jensen, White House correspondent for EWNT, which stands for The Eternal Word Television Network, an American basic cable television network that presents around-the-clock Catholic-themed programming. Biden has condemned both the Texas law that effectively makes abortions illegal in the state and the Supreme Court’s late-night decision not to block the law, which has caused immense consternation in pro-choice political circles but has curiously merited little mention on conservative media. “Why does the president support abortion when his own Catholic faith teaches abortion is morally wrong?” asked Jensen. Psaki replied, “He believes that it’s a woman’s right, it’s her body, and it’s her choice.” Unsatisfied with that answer, Jensen followed up. “Why does the president…who does he believe should look out for the unborn child?” “He believes that it’s up to a woman to make those decisions,” Psaki matter-of-factly...
    Pregnant women may be less likely to suffer from any side effects after receiving the COVID-19 vaccine, a new study finds.  Researchers from the University of Washington, in Seattle, compared side effects among expectant mothers to others who were either lactating or were not pregnant. There are no links between the effectiveness of vaccines and post-vaccination side effects, so the team says the data are not an indicator that the shots are less effective for pregnant women.  It comes about a week after the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) updated its recommendations to urge pregnant women to get jabbed. Pregnant mothers are less likely to experience side effects from the COVID-19 vaccine than others The data is revealed after the CDC recommends pregnant women to receive the vaccine. (File Photo) Researchers, who published their findings in JAMA Network Open on Tuesday, gathered data from over 17,000 participants.

    The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is strengthening its recommendations and urging pregnant women to get vaccinated against COVID-19. Previously, the federal health agency had said that pregnant women are 'eligible' to get inoculated against the virus. But on Wednesday, the CDC said mothers-to-be should get the vaccine after research showed no increased risk of miscarriage among women who were immunized. 'CDC recommends that pregnant people should be vaccinated against COVID-19, based on new evidence about the safety and effectiveness of the COVID-19 vaccines,' a news release read. 'COVID-19 vaccination is recommended for all people 12 years and older, including people who are pregnant, breastfeeding, or trying to get pregnant now or might become pregnant in the future.' The updated recommendations come after a study found that pregnant women who go into labor while infected with COVID-19 are at greater risk of severe complications and death than those without the virus.  Researchers from the University of California, Irvine Medical Center found that mothers-to-be who gave birth with the virus were five times more likely to end up in intensive...

    MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — A HealthPartners Institute researcher says a nationwide study shows an increasing uptake in COVID-19 vaccine uptake among those who are pregnant, but there’s room for improvement, especially reaching those who are younger, Black and Hispanic. The report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention analyzed nearly 136,000 people who are pregnant around the nation and found that just 16.3% had received at least one vaccine dose. It also found vaccination rates are lower among younger people and some communities of color. Just 7.7% of Hispanic people who are pregnant and 3.7% of Black people who are pregnant were completely vaccinated.

                      by Debra Heine  Two prominent medical professionals are raising red flags over the safety and efficacy of the COVID-19 vaccines in children, in pregnant women, and in those who have previously caught the coronavirus and now have antibodies.  There are alarming reports in the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) of healthy children dying shortly after being vaccinated, the doctors say. Also, multiple studies are showing higher rates of adverse effects in people who have recovered from the virus, and the vaccine is not proven to be safe for pregnant women, especially those in their first trimester, according to the doctors. Dr. Peter McCullough (pictured right), an American professor of epidemiology at Baylor University, and Dr. Harvey Risch (pictured left), professor at the Yale School of Public Health appeared on Fox News’ “Ingraham Angle” Thursday night to voice their concerns regarding these issues.   McCullough told host Laura Ingraham that randomized vaccine trials excluded individuals with  COVID-19 antibodies, so we don’t know if the vaccine is safe for...
