Mein Boo spent the afternoon at the Isar with friends of ours, now they’re back at the apartment of one of them, the group making pasta from scratch. He sent me this. And it looks like it’s gonna taste really fucking good.
Oh well, still meeting them later to see “Iron Sky” again. That shit was awesome.

A woman I went to college with just named her newborn son with…her own last name. As in that’s the boy’s first name. Her and the dad aren’t married yet. This could be interesting.

[NB: More people than just cis women will be affected by this law.]

That is the first line of The Salt Lake Tribune’s write up of this disgusting law, which now looks poised to be signed by Utah’s governor.

A similar law passed in South Dakota but has been held up in courts. In response to the passage of that law, NARAL posted this piece in 2011 about what a 72hr waiting period means.

Such laws, of course, disproportionately hurt poor people. 

This is the most radical waiting period in the country. It was debated for 15 minutes in the House with only one person speaking against it, Rep. Carol Spackman Moss. It received 53-seconds’ attention in the Senate.

This is disgusting. To not only are states passing ridiculous laws that show the inherent distrust that politicians have in pregnant people but Utah politicians couldn’t even spend actual time debating it?

As I said yesterday with Arizona and Kansas, this is NOT the moment where we make statements like, “Oh, that’s just Utah. Why don’t people move? What more do you expect? Oh well. *shrugs*.” Because you know who that helps? NO ONE. And you know what that make Utah residents who need/want access to abortion care feel like? Not important.

So, let’s make as much noise as possible. Don’t let this go by without us showing that we see, that we are watching, THAT WE CARE.

SIGNAL BOOST.

Just a quick summary of why these “forced waiting periods” are awful:

  • They have no medical purpose.
  • They exist solely to shame pregnant people into reconsidering a medical procedure.
  • Many pregnant people don’t have the money to skip work twice and travel all the way to the nearest abortion provider, which could be hours away or even in another state.

 Signal boost!
