If people think we are immune from "American Taliban" think again. We almost had an AT takeover of our school board last May. Our Marion County Commissioners, at least two of them, could be classified as AT. Colm Willis is the former Political Director of Oregon Right to Life. In his successful run for County Commissioner in 2018 he received 45% of his campaign funding from ORTL. He has to run for reelection next year and we can expect the same. He believes everyone should have the "right to choose" whether to be vaccinated and wear a mask to prevent COVID spread, but that women should not have reproductive rights. That's total hypocrisy.

Texas SB8, Sec. 171.208 – authorizes mindreading by members of the general public

Sec. 171.208. CIVIL LIABILITY FOR VIOLATION OR AIDING OR
ABETTING VIOLATION. (a) Any person, other than an officer or
employee of a state or local governmental entity in this state, may
bring a civil action against any person who:

(1) performs or induces an abortion in violation of
this chapter;

(2) knowingly engages in conduct that aids or abets
the performance or inducement of an abortion, including paying for
or reimbursing the costs of an abortion through insurance or
otherwise, if the abortion is performed or induced in violation of
this chapter, regardless of whether the person knew or should have
known that the abortion would be performed or induced in violation
of this chapter; or

(3) intends to engage in the conduct described by
Subdivision (1) or (2). -- ( !!!!!!!!!!!!!!! )

Swarms of self-righteous Texas busybodies will now be invading the privacy of their neighbors, and getting paid to do it.

If you think that one of Texas' Republican legislators is thinking about advising or assisting a relative or neighbor to get an abortion, be sure to file a lawsuit against that legislator and collect your $10,000.

It would be clear that women have the right to choose right up to delivery day if there was not another life involved.

But there is another life involved.

What if our mothers decided to abort us?

Our opportunity to live would have been terminated.

This discussion between us would never occur.

We never would have lived.

Do the unborn have a right to life, to choose to live or not, or to have that choice made for them?

The discussion about when life begins could continue ad infinitum. There is nearly universal agreement that abortion is wrong at a certain point of development. The assertion that what some call a heartbeat at about 6 weeks is simply a common activity of a group of cells that are in the process of becoming a heart does not even need to be considered.
The problem here is that the Supreme Court, which is the highest court in the land, has ceded its authority as the body that provides judicial review [which means that they decide what is constitutional and what is not (Marbury v Madison)].
The consequences of allowing the incongruity between Roe and the Texas legislature's action is clear.
Once precedent becomes selectively irrelevant, the rule of law withers away.

Maybe all unwanted babies in Texas should be forced to be raised by their fathers. Maybe then men would stop fighting abortion if they had to deal with the baby for the rest of their lives like they are forcing women to do. Even from rape and incest. Shame on those folks. Shame. Now we have a Supreme Court who won’t defend our constitution. Shame. We have a Congress who will not uphold our constitution by protecting a woman’s right to choose by either reducing or expanding the Supreme Court to get rid of beer-boy or Weird Jesus girl. Shame.

Just three more reasons to vote against republican taliban in 2022.
