Sure, but charging whoever sold him the guns - that's tyrannical and communist.

Fecking Republicans. They really, really hate democracy, don't they? It's no coincidence that those states who denied people the right to vote pre-civil rights era, alongside some northern states as well, are back at it with a vengeance ever since the SC basically gutted the Voting Rights Act.

I'm not really sure which side I'm on in this case. On the one hand, what happened to these people is absolutely horrifying. But was it really ConAgra's fault? I mean, those vents were installed to prevent the cans from turning into shrapnel-throwing grenades if they overheat. Plus, there are reasons you don't store pressurized aerosol cans of flammable liquids above sources of high heat, like a stovetop. This would be one of them.

Georgia Governor Brian Kemp signed HB 481, the so-called fetal heartbeat law, into law yesterday, criminalizing all abortions after a fetal heartbeat can be detected. Anyone who gets such an abortion can be sentenced to life in prison or the death penalty. Oh, it gets even worse: Under the new law, simply having a miscarriage can lead to charges of second-degree murder, a crime punishable by 10-30 years in prison, if it can be shown the woman was somehow responsible for the miscarriage. And, oh yeah, law enforcement will find any way possible to pin the miscarriage on the woman's actions.

The Republican Party needs to die in a fire and burn for eternity in hell!


HB 481 would also have consequences for women who get abortions from doctors or miscarry. A woman who seeks out an illegal abortion from a health care provider would be a party to murder, subject to life in prison. And a woman who miscarries because of her own conduct—say, using drugs while pregnant—would be liable for second-degree murder, punishable by 10 to 30 years’ imprisonment. Prosecutors may interrogate women who miscarry to determine whether they can be held responsible; if they find evidence of culpability, they may charge, detain, and try these women for the death of their fetuses.

Sheer unmitigated cruelty to women and children. Where is your god now - Fort Knox?

Great, so if these old white men get their way, emergency life-saving surgery to remove an ectopic pregnancy can't be paid for by insurance unless the ectopic embryo is then "re-implanted into the woman's uterus", a procedure that doesn't actually exist and is not known to be even theoretically possible.
