Federal Judge Overturns North Dakota's 6-Week Abortion Ban; Armed Militias Surround Fetuses

News

Here's somepretty good news on the old reproductive rights front:


A federal judge on Wednesday overturned a North Dakota law banning abortions when a fetal heartbeat can be detected, as early as six weeks into pregnancy and before many women know they're pregnant.

U.S. District Judge Daniel Hovland, who is based in Bismarck, said the law is "invalid and unconstitutional" and that it "cannot withstand a constitutional challenge."

You know what this means, ladies: Free champagne at the Abortionplex and all the promiscuous sex your Obamacare-mandated slut pills can handle! (Offer good only in Fargo, North Dakota)

So the good news is that North Dakota ladies can continue to wait until they actually know they're pregnant before having an abortion, which will be a lot more convenient, we bet. The less than fantastic news is that the state has just one clinic that performs the procedure -- in Fargo -- and a whole bunch of other restrictions are already in place, like a 24-hour waiting period, mandatory "don't kill your babby" counseling, and a ban on abortions past 20 weeks except when the woman's life or health is endangered. Also, too, the state legislature allocated $400,000 to defend restrictive abortion laws passed last year, so it's entirely likely that Attorney General Wayne Stenehjem may want to spend some of that on appealing today's decision.

Because North Dakota needs more young people who will grow up to get the fuck out of the godforsaken frozen wasteland that is North Dakota as fast as possible.

DING DONG THE WITCH IS ... quite likely to land on her feet. But for today, the New York Times reports Dana Loesch is out of a job, the latest casualty in the war between the NRA and its longtime advertising company Ackerman McQueen. But every cloud has a silver bullet lining, since Dana will have more free time now to spend on her favorite hobby. We can't wait to see which cartoon character she photoshops Klan hoods onto next. Maybe she'll branch out and start putting Nazi armbands onto Buzz Lightyear. Oh, we would be so triggered!

As one of the most visible characters on NRATV with literal hundreds of viewers for each of her fascist rants, Dana Loesch was a tireless advocate for the gunhumpers lobby, always ready to call out "tragedy dry-humping whores," threatening to "fist" or perhaps "fisk" the New York Times, and expressing her hope that the Mueller Report would die in an "AIDS fire."

With the first Democratic debate coming up tonight (join us here for livebloog, dummies!), Elizabeth Warren is out with yet another policy proposal, this time to guarantee that all Americans have the easiest possible access to voting in federal elections. A good bit of it overlaps with the House Democrats' proposal, earlier this year, to guarantee voting rights. But Warren goes even beyond that ambitious plan a bit, because she is a badass who wants elections to be fair and free from computer hacking -- and from less exotic forms of fuckery. Needless to say, her insistence that all Americans should be able to vote will be decried as some kind of power grab, because that's what it is: a plan to grab power away from the Republicans who have engineered electoral advantages well beyond their actual support among Americans. You can see the bumper stickers now: FAIRNESS ISN'T FAIR.
