"Anti-Abortion Measures Can Hurt ALL Pregnant Women" - NAPW

I can't believe these hospital horror stories. The unmitigated audacity of the nutbars and how far they're willing to go to shore up their position in the culture war scares the living heck out of me. "These 'stories' you're hearing are just scare tactics," they say. Well, they're not. They're very, very real.

Imagine you're a woman in labour and a sheriff comes knocking on your door and forces you to go to a hospital where a hearing is being held to determine if you will be forced to have a c-section. The state appoints a lawyer for the fetus, but not one for you. Fuck. What the heck is this?

At least Stephen Harper is keeping the worst of our nuts placated for now. I don't want to live in a country where this kind of thing happens. Ever.
