Today’s Lady News: Women Could Die Under Abortion Bill Being Considered In Ohio

  • A “fetal heartbeat” bill under consideration in Ohio’s state senate would criminalize abortion after a fetal heartbeat is detectable, which is usually after seven weeks. This bill has no exemptions for rape victims, incest victims, or women with mental health issues. But the absolute scariest part of the bill is the lack of health exemptions for the pregnant woman unless the pregnancy presents an imminent danger to her health. One doctor who testified to the Ohio state senate said he performed an abortion on a woman whose fetus was attached to a major blood vessel; he questioned whether that blood vessel would have to rupture in order for the pregnancy to be considered life-threatening to the woman. This is scary stuff, Ohioans. [Think Progress] Keep reading »

Abortion rights are being screwed with yet again! The Susan B. Anthony and Frederick Douglass Prenatal Nondiscrimination Act seeks to criminalize abortions based on the race or the sex of the fetus. That might sound good to some people: supporters of the bill quickly point out how many female fetuses are aborted in China, where there is a one-child policy in most areas and a nationwide preference for boys. However, a closer look at the bill reveals that it’s yet another tricky-dick move by abortion opponents to restrict abortion rights and make life more difficult for abortion providers.

Having an abortion does not increase a woman’s chance of developing mental health problems, a British health agency has found. The U.K.’s National Collaborating Centre for Mental Health compared a number of studies conducted worldwide in the past 20 years and found that in cases of unwanted pregnancy, women who chose abortion were no more likely to develop disorders like depression and anxiety than those who gave birth. Research does point to an increase in mental disorders in women with unwanted pregnancies in general, with approximately one in three women with unwanted pregnancies diagnosed with such disorders. These statistics did not rise, however, in the cases in which women underwent abortion. Keep reading »

Today’s Lady News: Why Is It Illegal To Give Yourself An Abortion?

  • Last week, a 20-year-old woman in New York City was arrested for aborting her 24-week-old fetus herself. At six months along, the woman would not have found a doctor to perform a “late-term abortion” unless giving birth would have killed her. But this sad story begs the question: why is giving yourself an abortion oftentimes illegal? [Reproductive Health Reality Check]
  • The best excerpts from Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s speech before the United Nations Human Rights Council in Geneva about LGBT rights. “Like being a woman, like being a racial, religious, tribal, or ethnic minority, being LGBT does not make you less human,” Clinton said. “And that is why gay rights are human rights, and human rights are gay rights.” Love.

I am 20-years-old and got pregnant in August by my boyfriend of nine years. We started dating in middle school, and I have supported him through everything. The pregnancy was unplanned and my family life at home is very unhealthy, but my boyfriend wanted to keep the baby. I disagreed. I know in my heart that I couldn’t have given this baby the life right now that he or she deserved. I wasn’t ready and feel very stupid for getting myself in this position. In the end, my boyfriend was going to leave me if I had the abortion. He’s been my best friend since I was 11 and I didn’t want to lose him, so I lied and said the pregnancy test was a false positive and had the abortion. Keep reading »
