"For the next 45 years — not including the two years I was away in the Air Force — I was a practicing OB/GYN in Texas, conducting Pap smears, pelvic exams and pregnancy check-ups; delivering more than 10,000 babies; and providing abortion care at clinics I opened in Houston and San Antonio, and another in Oklahoma. Then, this month, everything changed. A new Texas law, known as S.B. 8, virtually banned any abortion beyond about the sixth week of pregnancy. It shut down about 80 percent of the abortion services we provide. Anyone who suspects I have violated the new law can sue me for at least $10,000. They could also sue anybody who helps a person obtain an abortion past the new limit, including, apparently, the driver who brings a patient to my clinic. For me, it is 1972 all over again. And that is why, on the morning of Sept. 6, I provided an abortion to a woman who, though still in her first trimester, was beyond the state's new limit. I acted because I had a duty of care to this patient, as I do for all patients, and because she has a fundamental right to receive this care." "Though we never ask why someone has come to our clinic, they often tell us. They're finishing school or they already have three children, they're in an abusive relationship, or it's just not time. A majority are mothers. Most are between 18 and 30. Many are struggling financially — more than half qualify for some form of financial aid from us. Several times a month, a woman confides that she is having the abortion because she has been raped. Sometimes, she reports it to the police; more often, she doesn't. Texas's new law makes no exceptions for rape or incest. Even before S.B. 8, Texas had some of the most restrictive abortion laws in the country. That includes a 24-hour waiting period, meaning a woman has to make at least two visits to our clinic. Ultrasound imaging is mandatory. Parental consent is required for minors, unless they obtain court approval." "And yet, despite the restrictions, we were always able to continue providing compassionate care up to the legal limit of 22 weeks. It meant hiring more staff, everything took longer, but we managed. Until Sept. 1. Since then, most of our patients have been too far along in their pregnancies to qualify for abortion care. I tell them that we can offer services only if we cannot see the presence of cardiac activity on an ultrasound, which usually occurs at about six weeks, before most people know they are pregnant. The tension is unbearable as they lie there, waiting to hear their fate. If we detect cardiac activity, we have to refer them out of state. One of the women I talked with since the law took effect is 42. She has four kids, three under 12. I advised her that she could go to Oklahoma. That's a nine-hour drive one way. I explained we could help with the funding. She told me she couldn't go even if we flew her in a private jet. “Who's going to take care of my kids?” she asked me. “What about my job? I can't miss work.” --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/antonio-myers4/message Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/antonio-myers4/support

"Pro-Choice and Pro-Life Groups Some prominent pro-choice organizations include Planned Parenthood, NARAL Pro-Choice America, the National Abortion Federation, the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), and the National Organization for Women. Although many pro-life positions derive from religious ideology, several mainstream faith groups support the pro-choice movement, such as the United Methodist Church, United Church of Christ, the Episcopal Church, Presbyterian Church (USA), and the Unitarian Universalist Association. The 2016 Democratic Party Platform endorsed the pro-choice position, stating, “We believe unequivocally, like the majority of Americans, that every woman should have access to quality reproductive health care services, including safe and legal abortion – regardless of where she lives, how much money she makes, or how she is insured. We believe that reproductive health is core to women's, men's, and young people's health and wellbeing.” [169] However, 26% of Democrats consider themselves to be pro-life. [170] Some prominent pro-life organizations include The National Right to Life Committee, Pro-Life Action League, Operation Rescue, the Catholic Church, the Eastern Orthodox Church, Americans United for Life, the National Association of Evangelicals, Family Research Council, Christian Coalition of America, and the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (Mormon Church). [6] The 2016 Republican Party Platform opposed abortion, stating, “We oppose the use of public funds to perform or promote abortion or to fund organizations, like Planned Parenthood, so long as they provide or refer for elective abortions or sell fetal body parts rather than provide healthcare… We will not fund or subsidize healthcare that includes abortion coverage… We thank and encourage providers of counseling, medical services, and adoption assistance for empowering women experiencing an unintended pregnancy to choose life.” [171] However, 36% of Republicans consider themselves to be pro-choice.

TELEMEDICINE AND MEDICATION ABORTION "Telemedicine abortion combines medication abortion, which uses pills to end a pregnancy, with telemedicine, which allows health care providers meet with patients via videoconferencing or telephone consultations. Medication abortion, approved by the FDA for use during the first 10 weeks of pregnancy, uses two different medicines: mifepristone, which interrupts the flow of the hormone progesterone that sustains the pregnancy; and misoprostol, which causes contractions. Misoprostol alone is 80-85 percent effective, and in combination with mifepristone is 95 percent effective. Medication abortion is an extremely safe way to end a pregnancy in the first 12 weeks of gestation. According to the Guttmacher Institute, in 2017 medication abortion accounted for approximately 40 percent of all recorded abortions and 60 percent of abortions performed up to 10 weeks gestation. (The actual rate is likely higher because of the growing number of people who are self-managing their abortions using medication purchased on the internet or obtained in other ways.) The growth of medication abortion has dovetailed with the expansion of telehealth to provide new opportunities for accessing abortion health care. As abortion restrictions have increased over the last several years and harassment of people entering health clinics persists — even during the COVID-19 crisis — people are increasingly turning to medication abortion and telehealth to increase their safety and privacy when obtaining abortion care." "In light of COVID-19, and the need for increased social distancing, advocates are increasingly challenging the FDA's REMS restrictions on the abortion pill. This effort is supported by recent research on the safety of a no-test medication abortion protocol that allows doctors to screen patients by phone or video and then mail abortion pills directly to them. On March 30, 2020, a coalition of 21 state attorneys general led by California Attorney General Xavier Becerra sent a strongly-worded letter to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and its U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), urging the Trump Administration to waive or utilize its discretion on enforcement of its REMS designation. In addition to the attorneys general letter, reproductive health groups are pressuring the government to remove the REMS restriction on the abortion pill. In July of 2020, a federal judge in Maryland issued a ruling temporarily suspending enforcement of an FDA restriction on abortion pills during the pandemic." --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/antonio-myers4/message Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/antonio-myers4/support

"FUNDING ABORTION In addition to restrictive state laws, the federal Hyde Amendment and subsequent federal and state laws banning public funding for abortion continue to limit access for low-income people, who are disproportionately women of color. Currently Medicaid covers abortion only in cases of rape, incest, or when the pregnant person's life is endangered by an illness, injury, or physical disorder. While the Hyde Amendment restricts state Medicaid programs from using federal funds to cover abortion outside the above circumstances, states can use their own funds to cover abortion. In 2020 sixteen states fund abortion services on the same terms as other pregnancy related health services, which means these states use their own funds to cover abortions in circumstances in addition to what the Hyde Amendment allows. Thirty-three states and the District of Columbia follow the federal standard and only provide abortions in the circumstances outlined in the Hyde Amendment. In 2017, over half of reproductive age women on Medicaid — 7.9 million women — lived in states that restrict abortion coverage. The Hyde amendment and its progeny have expanded in scope and currently also limit federal funding of abortion services for federal employees, women in the military and Peace Corps, American Indian and Alaskan native women who use the Indian Health Service, and women in federal prisons and immigration detention facilities. Currently, under the leadership of women of color organizations and their allies, activists are attempting to repeal Hyde and restore public funding for abortion health care. In a direct challenge to the Hyde Amendment, Congresswomen Barbara Lee (D-CA), Jan Schakowsky (D-IL), and Diane DeGette (D-CO), introduced the Each Woman Act in 2015 to ensure coverage of abortion for any person, regardless of how much she earns or the type of insurance she has. The All* Above All campaign unites organizations and individuals to lift the bans on public insurance coverage for abortions. Congress has also blocked foreign aid from covering or even providing information on abortion health care. The Helms Amendment — first passed in 1973 and named after the former ultra-conservative Senator Jesse Helms (R-N.C.) — bars the use of U.S. foreign aid funds to support abortion care. In 1984, Ronald Reagan instituted the Mexico City Policy, which came to be known as the “global gag rule.” Under this gag rule, foreign nongovernmental organizations that want to continue receiving any U.S. family planning funding must agree to stop providing abortion-related services or advocating for the expansion of abortion access, using any source of their funding. The global gag rule has been in place under Republican presidents since 1984, although repealed by every Democratic president. In 2017, Donald Trump expanded the global gag rule to apply to all U.S. global health assistance." --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/antonio-myers4/message Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/antonio-myers4/support

"People around the world have used abortion to control their reproduction at every point in history, and in every known society — regardless of its legality. In the United States, abortion was originally legal before quickening, the point at which a pregnant person feels the fetus move, generally at around four or five months. Abortion was widely practiced, primarily done using herbs with the assistance of midwives and other female healers. Some of the earliest anti-abortion laws were poison control measures, passed in the mid-19th century in response to the proliferation of chemical abortifacents that became popular at the time. But by the late 19th century, most states had laws banning abortion except to save the life or health of a pregnant person. The move to ban abortions occurred for a variety reasons. First, it was part of a backlash against the growing women's rights movement, which advocated for “voluntary motherhood.” Even though the movement did not support abortion, the demand for birth control was a threat to male dominance. Restricting abortion was part of an effort to control women and confine them to a traditional childbearing role. It was also a way for men in the newly-established medical profession to wrest control over the highly-profitable business of childbirth from midwives, whom they condemned for performing abortions. The attacks on abortion access were rooted in racism and white supremacy. White doctors often targeted Black midwives for particular condemnation. People seeking to criminalize abortion were also motivated by increased immigration, specifically of Catholic immigrants, and the declining birthrate among U.S.-born white Protestant women in the late 1800s. The U.S. government and the eugenics movement were concerned about “race suicide” and wanted white Protestant women to have more children. “When I was 15 and pregnant, abortion was illegal. I was denied any choice—I had a baby that I gave up for adoption. This experience has been a driving force in my life. I became an OB/GYN; I do abortions because I am totally committed to making sure that other women have the options that I didn't have.” Despite the legal prohibitions, people continued to have abortions, although surreptitiously. They were subjected to fear and shame, which took a heavy toll on their lives, their health, and their families. While there were providers who practiced safely, finding one often depended upon a woman's economic situation, her race, and where she lived. Women with money could sometimes leave the country or find a physician who would perform the procedure for a high fee. Poor women and women of color suffered disproportionately. For the most part, they were either at the mercy of incompetent practitioners with questionable motives, unable to find anyone who would perform the procedure, or forced to resort to dangerous self-abortions. In desperation, they inserted knitting needles or coat hangers into their vaginas and uteruses, douched with solutions such as lye, or swallowed strong drugs or chemicals." --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/antonio-myers4/message Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/antonio-myers4/support

There are two folks you have not heard from in all the news coverage of the state's new abortion law; these are the two out-of-staters who are suing a San Antonio abortion doctor. So, the Jasons cracked open the White Pages, pulled out their long-distance calling card and got Oscar Stilley on the phone from Cedarville, Ark. and Felipe Gomez on the line from Chicago. Though, Gomez said, tongue-in-cheek, that it takes a couple ‘yahoos' from other states to test the Texas law, both men have legal backgrounds and are coming to Texas courts with different motivations. To put these guys in context, the Jasons also called a law professor at South Texas College of Texas who explains why SB8, as Texas' abortion law is known, is almost a sideshow to what's happening in Mississippi.   Y'all-itics is sponsored by Octopus Energy.

"I have longer to please the dead than please the living here." (Sophocles, Antigone). With these chilling words, Antigone sets in motion a Theologico-Political Crisis that will devour the Royal Family of Thebes and shatter the city. The Theologico-Political crisis that constitutes the drama of Sophocles' famous tragedy is a defining condition of Western Civilization, the emergence of Platonic and Metaphysical political philosophy, and the driving force behind the emergence of Modern political philosophy and Liberal Political Philosophy. Indeed, the Theologico-Political crisis is driving force behind the creation of American Liberal Democracy. Now it is back. The recent law banning abortions in Texas, and the silence of the Supreme Court, has initiated a new Theologico-Political crisis that threatens to devour what is left of the American Democratic political experiment. A straight line runs from ancient Thebes to contemporary Texas.
