Absolute, 100%, sheer freaking lunacy.
New and Proposed Laws in the US. I’m not saying much here, as they all speak for themselves:
- Nebraska passed a law last week prohibiting abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy, a measure intended to target the few remaining providers of late-term abortions in the US.
- Tennessee on Monday passed the first of what is expected to be a number of laws aimed at prohibiting insurance exchanges, created through President Barack Obama’s landmark health reform, from providing coverage for abortions.
- A new Oklahoma law requires physicians to disclose detailed information on women’s abortions to the State’s Department Of Health, which will then post the collected data on a public website. The controversial measure comes into effect on November 1 and will cost $281,285 to implement, $256,285 each subsequent year to maintain. Oklahoma women undergoing abortion procedures will be legally forced to reveal:
1 ) Date of abortion
2 ) County in which abortion is performed
3 ) Age of mother
4 ) Marital status of mother
5 ) Race of mother
6 ) Years of education of mother
7 ) State or foreign country of residence of mother
8 ) Total number of previous pregnancies of the mother
- Casper officials say an anti-gay sign painted on a homeowner’s fence near a high school will be allowed to remain because there’s nothing the city can or should do about it. Chris Trumbull painted the words “Leviticus 20:13, To be gay equals death” on his fence. Trumbull says the message is the Bible’s, not his. Trumbull’s property sits along a route between Roosevelt High School and the Boys & Girls Club where dozens of high school students pass every day. City Code Enforcement Supervisor Shelley LeClere says the city asked Trumbull to remove the message, but he declined.
- If you live in the Peach State of Georgia, then you may have some protection if such an unconstitutional mandatory microchip order is ever imposed by the federal government or world agencies. The Georgia Senate has passed SB 235 which would ban mandatory chipping. The bill may be viewed HERE.
“By passing this bill, we are sending the message that Georgia is committed to upholding its citizens’ constitutional rights and protection of their person,” the bill’s author, Sen. Chip Pearson (R-Dawsonville), said in a written statement. He said technology is moving fast and “we must be careful that it doesn’t come at the harm of citizens. The benefits of a microchip that can be internally implanted are also available in many external forms.” The Senate voted 47-2 in favor of the bill.
It seems that the Religious Nutbags have begun to get the upper hand in the US. I urge all the atheists in America etc to join your state group/s that fight for your rights as non-religious citizens. Without your support it is hard for them to achieve your freedom and things just might get worse, if that is even possible. Join up and show the God Botherers that there are big numbers against them. Show the judges that they have backing to make the right decisions. Show the people that if they run for office, they have people that will vote for them.
The same goes here in Australia or wherever you live. Join up. Without those numbers, they can’t show they have the power to force change. Numbers is what it is all about.
