Abortion Might Be Limited By SCOTUS And ‘Climate Change’ Or Something

I had no intention of doing back to back abortion on demand posts, but, I can’t ignore this, yet another case of the Cult of Climastrology linking their supposedly scientific cult to everything that happens

SCOTUS may limit abortion access. So might climate change

When Hurricane Ida barreled through Louisiana last month, its 149 mph winds didn’t just ravage the state’s power grid and leave residents cooking in sweltering heat — they also took two of the Pelican State’s three abortion clinics offline.

From a reproductive health perspective, the storm couldn’t have come at a worse time — just days after a Texas law effectively banned abortions and sent hundreds of people over state lines looking for care.

“The hurricane was truly just one more slap in the face,” said Kathaleen Pittman, administrator at the Hope Medical Group for Women in Shreveport, La. Hers was the sole clinic that remained open through the storm, extending hours for consultations and procedures in an effort to provide care to everyone in need. (snip)

Now, with the Supreme Court weighing two abortion-related challenges this term, reproductive rights advocates fear that the story of Hurricane Ida and Texas’ S.B. 8 could soon be repeated on a national scale as climate change intensifies extreme weather, creating even more hurdles for the 615,000 women the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says seek abortions annually.

Hurricane Ida is just the most recent example of how natural disasters fueled by climate change can limit access to abortion — a procedure that must be precisely timed due to legal restrictions. In 2017, both Hurricane Harvey and California wildfires, including the Tubbs Fire, also forced abortion clinics to close and left people scrambling for care at the last minute.

Good grief. This is bat guano insane.

One woman in the study said she became pregnant after being raped in a hurricane shelter and wanted to terminate. But the clinic in Houston where she lived was closed because of the storm, and she needed money to travel some 10 hours to El Paso instead — an expense she could ill afford.

“When abortion access is restricted and then you have climate change, which creates natural disasters that displace people and cut off access to things they normally would have access to, it exacerbates existing inequities and access issues,” said the study’s lead author, Ophra Leyser-Whalen, a medical sociologist at the University of Texas, El Paso. “Just think about having to pick up and travel to get an abortion in the middle of not having anything in your life after a natural disaster. That is also a disaster.”

Where do you go with something this nutty? In Real Life, you probably just walk away, expressing the old saying “never argue with an idiot crazy climate/abortion cultist. They drag you down to their level and beat you with experience.”

    Just involuntarily sterilize all the undesirable people during childhood. Then abortion isn’t a problem. As with other socialist programs, it’s such a good idea it should be mandatory. Make it a part of immigration pipeline too. No more anchor-babies.

    SCOTUS may limit abortion access. So might climate change

    Not surprising. According to the Cult, it causes everything else.

    Why do krazy konservatives so strongly support the parental rights of rapists (you know, The Rape Daddies)? We can speculate why…
