In addition to being an utterly shitty bill for choice, it also makes me cringe when we think of a person’s basic right to privacy. As noted above, Judicial bypass makes it hard enough for a minor to obtain an abortion she needs. This is just intimidation and shaming via government. The state would like to shame every single minor in the state who needs access to an abortion. Don’t girls get enough goddamn shaming as it is but to be codified into law?

An acquaintance was gang raped in her home while her baby girl slept beside her. A friend was raped by her partner. Another friend was (probably) drugged and raped. This has got to stop. It has to end. These things are hard to read. It is disturbing to right-minded people. But we have to keep reading it. We have to keep acknowledging it. Because too often, those who are meant to protect us, to investigate the crimes against us, don’t understand/care about the severity of rape – the prevalence of rape. This is a crisis. – Me
