Anti-Choice “Medical Experts” Play Increasing Role in Abortion Legislation Testimony

As anti-choice state legislators introduce more and more abortion restrictions, the testimony for and against such bills is becoming increasingly important in influencing final votes. In some cases, such as the recent Indiana medication abortion law hearing, the divide between real science and anti-choice “science” is clear when anti-choicers are unable to find even one practicing medical professional to show up to defend the bill, while opponents are able to recruit numerous doctors to discuss its problems.


“As part of his ongoing attempt to restrict abortion access to low-income women, Alaska Sen. John Coghill recently video conferenced national medical professionals to testify in a recent committee hearing; they all claimed abortion is never medically necessary and is harmful to a woman’s physical and mental health.”

"Corporations are people to be protected. One-celled human zygotes are people to be protected. But when it comes to the already born, flesh-and-blood people of this country, reeling from a massive recession, they would shred the social safety net. Sink or swim is not a plan."

BEE: The GOP platform is clear: no abortion, no exceptions. But the GOP candidate disagrees. How would the delegates who ratified this platform reconcile the difference?

Pictures from Vaginas Take Back the Capitol in Lansing. It was the most amazing experience I have ever had. There were about 5,000 people present, and it brought me to tears knowing that all of those people showed up for choice. I am seriously in awe of the women of Michigan. 

I wish my camera hadn’t died, otherwise I would have way more pictures.
