    Abortion is self-defense. Self-defense should be a defense to the criminalization of abortion. If a pregnant person is arrested for having an abortion, they should be able to claim self-defense. Obviously, this is currently not an accepted legal defense. But in this new post-Roe era – with the possible codification of personhood and the increased criminalization of pregnant people – activists should start embracing self-defense as a legitimate legal strategy. Deeply rooted history READ MORE: West Virginia Senator says child rape victims 'romanticize' their attackers as their 'boyfriends' It’s long been an accepted legal principle that you are allowed to commit violence, or even murder, in defense of yourself or others. Every state and the District of Columbia have self-defense laws. There are a few shared principles that date back to common law. You can claim self-defense if you use a proportional amount of violence in response to an imminent threat of unprovoked violence. The imminent threat is determined based on the “reasonable man” standard – is your fear of imminent violence reasonable? Common law and...
    (CNN)Brandy Bottone was driving in the HOV lane meant for at least two people per vehicle in Dallas, Texas, two weeks ago when she was pulled over by police. The officer noted there didn't seem to be anyone else in the car, but Bottone had a retort -- she was 34 weeks pregnant."He said, 'Is there somebody else in the car?' And, looking around, I said, 'Yes there is,' and he said 'Well, where?' I pointed at my stomach and I was like, 'Right here,'" she told CNN on Sunday."He said, 'Well, it's two bodies outside of the body, so that doesn't count.' I was kind of in shock, and I was like, 'Well, in light of everything that's happened, and I'm not trying to make a huge political stance here, but do you understand that this is a baby?'" The interaction, first reported by The Dallas Morning News, came days after the US Supreme Court ruled there is no federal right to abortion and declared abortion rights can be determined by each state. Texas, like other states led by...

    by Adam Ellwanger   Over the last few years, leftists have intensified their attacks on traditional norms regarding sex and gender identity. This began in the immediate aftermath of the Supreme Court’s 2015 decision in Obergefell v. Hodges, which legalized gay marriage nationwide. Activists swiftly redirected their efforts toward securing transgender rights, which was trumpeted as the next frontier in the struggle for LGBT equality. Since then, their demands and assertions have become increasingly absurd. As recently as last month we were told that there was no universal way to define the word “woman,” that there is a moral obligation to use the pronouns (often made-up words) that conform to the preferences of the person to whom they refer, and that men can get pregnant. The LGBT lobby and their allies insist that “trans women” are women and “trans men are men.” A trans woman, of course, is almost always a biological man—a person with XY chromosomes, born with male anatomy—who “identifies” (i.e., feels like) a woman. Only a few decades ago we would have said a person of this sort was “living as a woman,” a turn of phrase that subtly...
    A 33-year-old mother of three from central Texas receiving an abortion at Hope Medical Group for Women in Shreveport, Louisiana. Abortion is still legal, even in Texas. Amy Hagstrom Miller, president and CEO of Whole Woman’s Health, which operates four clinics in Texas, wants to reiterate that. Even since Sept. 1, when the abortion bounty-hunter law went into effect, the clinics have still been helping people. “When news like this comes out, it confuses people and scares people, and I think there are people who will read these stories and think that abortion is already illegal,” said Hagstrom Miller. “I think it’s important for us to speak to these people and let them know this isn’t final, and at least for now we can still offer them the care they deserve.” However, when the Supreme Court makes the leaked draft ruling from Justice Samuel Alito overturning Roe v. Wade and Casey (the long-standing rulings protecting the right to an abortion) official, Texas is going to ban abortion with just one exception: to save the life of the patient or if there’s a risk...

    As Daily Kos continues to cover, while the nation faces the novel coronavirus pandemic, Republicans are happy to distract from the public health crisis by any means necessary. Attack trans youth? Absolutely. Make it impossible for trans adults to update their legal documents? Yup. Slam down on every option for pregnant people (or people who could become pregnant) to have a shred of autonomy and dignity? Why, of course. While this is a disturbing nationwide trend, one state that continues to make headlines (and for good reason) is Texas. One example comes state lawmaker Briscoe Cain. Cain, a Republican, recently filed HB 153, legislation that would permit pregnant people to drive in the HOV lane by themselves, as first covered by Jezebel. What’s so weird about this legislation, and moreover, what’s so bad about it? Let’s break down the possible implications below. At a very brief glance, it’s easy to think this bill is one of the few bits of consideration Texas legislators wanted to offer pregnant people in their state. After all, who wants to sit in congested traffic?...
    As someone who has birthed five persons, I believe I have earned the name “mother.” I won’t be demoted to “birthing person.” Democratic Missouri Rep. Cori Bush testified before Congress, telling a truly moving story about how her premature son could have been a statistic, and that story fell by the wayside because she used the term “birthing person” to express the fact that she was a mother. (RELATED: Congresswoman Cori Bush Refers To Women As ‘Birthing People’) Every day, Black birthing people and our babies die because our doctors don’t believe our pain. My children almost became a statistic. I almost became a statistic. I testified about my experience @OversightDems today. Hear us. Believe us. Because for so long, nobody has. pic.twitter.com/rExrMXzsSQ — Congresswoman Cori Bush (@RepCori) May 6, 2021 Bush later explained, as did abortion advocate group NARAL, that the term was being used to “include” people who might not identify as women. When we talk about birthing people, we’re being inclusive. It’s that simple. We use gender neutral language when talking about pregnancy, because it’s not just...
