    1. Look, this is not a problem!

      The wealthy GOP politicians and donors in Texas will still be flying their daughters and ‘personal assistants’ to private clinics in NY, where they sometimes book out the entire morning to avoid adverse publicity and always have the staff sign savage confidentiality agreements.

    2. Conservatives dont burn the American flag like the Taliban and leftists do.

      And isnt it leftist Twitter that still has Taliban alive and kickin?

    1. (Revelation 21:8) “But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.”

    1. American freedom dies in Texas with fully armed vigilantes stalking pregnant women to profit from catching them. With everyone now legally armed wherever in Texas, how long until a stalker and a pregnant woman get in a shootout?

    2. We only need to look at all the children’s bones recently dug up in Canada and Ireland, to understand what used to happen when abortion wasn’t allowed and those kids ended up in children’s homes; at all the little British kids shipped to Canada and Australia; or at all the women who died from back-street abortions. What is your country doing? Signed Australia.

    3. This is terrifying as a Canadian and I always thought the US was better then this. Gotta stop letting the Republicans break every rule and stop giving them the benefit of the doubt. They are bad faith actors and should be treated as such.

  1. All bets are off once the child is born, though. They deny basic needs, food and medical care, and when some these lives don’t work out so great, they are scapegoated, incarcerated, and sometimes put to death.

    1. @Allan Burns I wouldn’t mind these people paying at least some tax. Drop all welfare from people under 60, and able-bodied as well.

  2. But don’t you dare try to tell Texans to wear a mask or take a vaccine even for their children’s sake. They gots rights and horse dewormer doncha know.

    1. @Ghost3 Delta
      I’m sure women can take care of your comment. Let me just say that there are women who design computer system, guide and land rockets on Mars, sing successfully, lead countries, and maybe cook too, but are not willing to be your maid. Just a thought.

  3. Hmmmm… Speaking as a guy, if the implication of this goofy law is that I can sue businesses that don’t uphold mask mandates or individual firearm owners then I’ll take that deal and my winnings to the bank.

    1. @E E just wait. This will be the same crowd that will REALLY take your guns one day. It will be the extreme right fascist wing that does it. If they get majority power again they do not want the threat of “anyone” trying to usurp that power.

    2. @E E On loo y women will be arrested and forced to bear children for those men that no woman wants a child from!!!!

    1. @Ghost3 Delta why dont you guys to Afghanistan you seem to have more in common with the Taliban than western civilisation

    2. @Hamish Gaffaney

      Because its only you who supports Islam over democratic Israel. Because its only you who burns American flags. Because its only you who kills cops and hates America. Because its only you that hates whites. Because its only you that defends oppressive Islam while being anti-Semitic and rioting over the same kind of people that the Taliban would recruit (Fentanyl Floyd, Trayvon, Garrett Foster)

  4. Stop this Medical Malfeasance. There is no HEART tissue at 6 weeks. This makes it IMPOSSIBLE for there to be a HEARTBEAT. At six weeks, there is only the development of a small group of Nerve Cells that will control the future heart. This small group of nerve cells is pulsing with the signals that will control the future heart. It is IMPOSSIBLE to have a HEARTBEAT if there is NO HEART. The only thing we have here is the relentless drive of the “Republican” (Fascists) of Texas to reduce women to their BREEDING SLAVES.

    1. Exactly!!!

      Tell me Republicans aren’t hypocrites, read this:
      Abbott’s law is unconstitutional!!!

      Republican U.S. Rep. Scott DesJarlais, who opposes abortion rights, testified during divorce proceedings that he and his former wife made a mutual decision for her to have two abortions, according to divorce transcripts released Thursday.

      DesJarlais, who practiced medicine before going to Congress, easily won a second term in Tennessee’s conservative 4th District despite previous revelations that he once urged a patient with whom he was having an affair to get an abortion.

      On his campaign website, DesJarlais espoused an anti-abortion position, saying: “All life should be cherished and protected. We are pro-life.”

      The former doctor also allegedly pressured a 24-year-old patient he was having an affair with to get an abortion. Even after all that information came out DesJarlais still had the gall to vote for anti-abortion bills and boast of having a “100% pro-life voting record.”

      These are a few that are against abortions BUT when it comes to women in their lives it’s not a problem:

      Scott Lloyd: Lloyd joins an illustrious list of Republicans whose stance on abortion is basically: “It’s OK for me; evil for thee.”

      Earlier this year, for example, it emerged that
      Elliot Broidy, the former RNC deputy finance chairman paid $1.6m to a Playboy Playmate he had an affair with, after she aborted his child.

      Tim Murphy, the pro-life Pennsylvania Republican who resigned last year after it was revealed he had urged his mistress to consider an abortion.

    2. Thank you! A flicker of electrical activity in the fetal pole is NOT a heartbeat. The right-wing anti-women brigade use deliberately misleading and emotionally charged language to justify prioritising a barely extant fetus over a living thinking person.

    3. They are too ignorant to even do this little bit of research. They know that whatever they tell their base, they will believe. They don’t have to be medically accurate. Nobody really cares enough to investigate or learn. I do believe, firmly, that stupidity and ignorance that hurts the people should not be allowed to lead anyone anywhere.

    1. @Ghost3 Delta And you also made sure that 2/3 of the women voters in Texas will never vote for another Republican. You morons are your own worst enemies… you really are.

    2. @Tessmage Tessera

      Says the side who literally plays in traffic, gets ran TF over, then CRIES to the cops youre rioting against.

    1. Wait and see how many organizations pull their money out of TX. Sports teams, universities…the list is endless. Can’t wait. It will bankrupt the state.

    2. well dito to the left for assuming men cannot have babies, also what other options do you have? due to TX tax laws most of the products made in the US come from Texas, are you going to buy from your CCP allies?

    1. @M t wow burn the grammarly police are here, sorry is this for a English exam? also umm what? the comment directed at you does not need punctuation mate, your lack of attention is mind blowing

    2. @Murray Flewelling LOL so you have not heard that across 7 states 350k more mail in votes were scanned than sent out? also i am glad the election was rigged because now we get to see the left tear itself apart

    1. @Mistair Arts umm mandatory vaccine’s? my body my choice has gone out the window on that. also yet again men can get pregnant or have you forgotten about lgbtqia+ ? gee the left is in a really big pickle atm hey LOL

    2. @Thorax999 I will try to explain it simply so you can understand. It is men who have made laws and who are trying to make laws governing women’s bodies. You say with the vaccine, it is your body, your choice. Women say the same thing, our body our choice. You don’t get to have it both ways. If women don’t get to decide what they can do with their bodies, why do you get to decide what you can do with yours, other then you are a man?

    3. @Thorax999 You have had mandatory vaccines in the past… polio, measles, etc… you had them to go to school when you were a kid… so what’s the difference now… You want to die from some horrible disease… you can you know… you are not immune… but what is this really about… it’s not the vaccine… I’ve had it and it’s no biggie to get… it’s even easier than when I was in the Navy… It’s okay if you want to get COVID… go ahead lots of people have and died from it… you think it’s a scam… ask the woman who just lost her child to COVID if it’s a scam… wait isn’t there a blanket immunity for all republicans… no… there isn’t… so be defiant and take the chance of dying horribly… I won’t mind…

    1. @thegreen iguana and then he subjects them to a life of impoverishment and neglect. Lack of love from their absent mother and father and that’s the life you agree they should experience. Speaking as a child who lived it you are a fool and know nothing of what an unborn baby would want

    2. @cwall rollins 1st the FDA approved vaccine is stated to be “most likely” effective against the delta variant in the FDA’s letter

    3. Sounds to me Neel that that is exactly what we should do, pass a law enabling private citizens to bankrupt the NRA as a guilty party in all the lawsuits surrounding school shootings and what not. Get the Supreme court to reveal their flagrant hypocrisy.

    4. “The whole point of the rule of law, is to PREVENT vigilante justice.” Neal Katyal, speaks with clarity, sorely needed as Texas wilts reproductive rights to extinction. Expand that Supreme Court immediately, to overcome those trumpery judges, who allow this travesty Sept. 2021.
