I really do not like to bring up certain hot button topics on this blog, because I am very much a non-confrontational type of person. But when I read this post from Mel today, I just about fell out of my chair (for the second time in a week no less).
Seriously, this is out of hand. The State of Oklahoma has tipped the slippery slope of abortion rights down into a hellish vortex. Now, if you are a woman in Oklahoma choosing an abortion it carries two new perks.
1. You will be belittled in front of medical professionals.
2. You will be treated like a child and denied information about your pregnancy if a doctor sees fit.
And if you are wondering… there is no exception for rape and incest. A state senator described the passing of this into law as “A good day for the cause of life…”
If this can happen in Oklahoma, it can happen in your state.
Scary beyond belief.

And this probably affects us IFers more directly than you'd think – if you have a pg that goes "wrong" early on, you won't be able to have a D&C to remove the dead fetus from your body. Some people would choose to wait on that anyway, but I have had 2 d&cs and it was MCUH better than the m/c.I don't know for sure if that legislation is part of the OK plan, but I bet it is.
I too fell over in disbelief when I read it. It is just unbelievable.
Aw, how nice. What a good way to push a fragile woman struggling with an impossible decision over the edge.–MM
