Rick Perry Uses Joan Rivers’ Death To Defend Anti-Abortion Laws

Whatever works to appeal to the far-right anti-abortion crowd, right?

In Pennsylvania, state laws require that abortions be performed by physicians. Violating this law carries up to seven years in prison and a $15,000 fine – as single mother, Jennifer Ann Whalen, 39, of Washingtonville, found out when she gave her daughter miscarriage-inducing pills to end a pregnancy her 16-year-old daughter did not want.

That’s because a wave of anti-choice legislation has completely reoriented the women’s health landscape, ensuring that medical professionals are forced to ignore their best judgment in order to remain compliant with the law, according to a new report from the National [...]

While conservatives will tout this as a good thing, you can file this under the ongoing war on women.
