Show-Me Kansas City Star Spreading Missouri Fake News Abortion Crime Fear???

Without the paywall, recently the AP reported . . . Missouri Association of Prosecuting Attorneys President Tim Lohmar told The Associated Press Friday that it’s clear to prosecutors that charging pregnant women was not lawmakers’ intent when they passed the law. Translation: Women won’t face abortion felonies

Meanwhile, this report is mostly just progressive talking points that offers a wordy real news update near the end of the screed . . . Checkit:

Could Missouri women face felony charges for having abortions?

Officials in Missouri's public defender's office are worried women who seek self-managed, or pill abortions, could be subjected to felony charges. Associated Press file photo When Missouri Gov. Mike Parson signed into law one of the nation's most restrictive abortion bans in May, supporters of the measure said their aim was not to prosecute women who seek the procedure.

Women who kill their own offspring deserve to be locked up.

Women who kill their offspring need to be on death row ASAP. What kind of a person would kill an innocent baby that can't defend itself and then call it her body. Real sick people.

The problem with this law is in its very existence, not in whether or not "the Law" chooses to enforce it.

To illustrate, let me point out an extreme hypothesis.
Assume for a moment that the State of Missouri passed a law mandating a five-year jail sentence for anyone found attending any Catholic Church Services, (similar to the laws existing in Europe in the 1600s and 1700s regarding Protestant Services). Also assume that a Conservative Majority exists in the Supreme Court, and the Court refuses to hear challenges to that Law, leaving it in effect.

Prosecutors immediately announce that they will not prosecute these cases, but the law remains on the books, leaving Catholics subject to the whims of any Prosecuting Attorney who is facing the threat of not being reelected, or who is feeling threatened by pressure from his constituents.

Would you want to live under such a daily threat?
If your answer is yes, what if the scenario I gave applied to living in a Trailer instead? Or driving a Pickup Truck? Or riding a Harley Davidson?
Or claiming publicly that life exists before birth?

In other words, think before you regurgitate.

Or @7:26, people who read the Bible and believe its teachings, and therefore know that Life begins at Birth! (Genesis)

Planned Parenthood is the largest mass killer in the USA.

OK. What are you prepared to do about it? Thought so.

"Also assume that a Conservative Majority exists in the Supreme Court, and the Court refuses to hear challenges to that Law, leaving it in effect." A conservative majority SCOTUS would strike down the law as government interference in religion, because the text of the Constitution clearly requires that result. On the other hand, a liberal majority SCOTUS would likely keep the law in place, because a living Constitution must keep up with the spirit of the times, regardless of what its mere words say.

Does anyone find it ironic when we, almost universally, laud profusely our no-kill pet shelters, while supporting pro-kill Planned Parenthood?

@8:55, all the Constitution mandates is that the Federal Government not establish a "National Church", and there is no guarantee of "Freedom of Religion" anywhere in it.

It is extremely possible that a majority Conservative SCOTUS could ban any religion, just as one did with the LDS in the 1850s.

This is no more illogical than a much more recent example, where the Conservative Court ruled, under the principle of "free speech', that a Corporation was a "person" with regard to "free speech" in the form of political contributions, but at the same time was "not a person" with regard to taxation rates.

^^^Wrong.

First Amendment: "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof"

No, the Supreme Court in Citizens United did not hold that a corporation is a person - that had already been established a couple centuries of case law and also by the Federal Definitions Act. It held that corporations are composed of individuals engaged in a joint enterprise, and therefore entitled to the same free speech protections as the individuals who compose it.

I doubt that the SCOTUS held that the SCOTUS held that the word person, if used in the tax code without limitation, does not include corporations. Cite please.

Corporate Personage in the 14th Amendment was based on fraudulent and fictitious evidence. There is no legal ground for a corporate entity being a person. The abortion ban is based on bigotry and hatred towards women. Anyone who makes the case for an abortion ban is a bigot. Not that it bothers any of you that your role models rape children or anything like that?

Men...Women who will kill your child will almost certainly be willing to cheat on you later.

1:06, abortion advocates are psychopaths, like you. Have you stopped abusing children?

Catholic women are the first to run and get a D&C abortion when they miss a period. They have sex without contraception, then abort when pregnant. Besides they just sleep with large amounts of men, then confess it away in a small booth with a criminal priest listening to their sex exploits. What a perverted racket. Many catholic women have other men's babys and tell their husband its theirs. Affairs abound. Prairie Village and Leawood women are the horney ones, they have plenty of money, everything they need, so they only need to worry about satisfying their sexual pleasures. Some have sex in parking lots around Prairie Village with strangers they meet in stores. They hang out at the shops looking for young boys

Those who advocate harsh penalties for WOMEN who have abortions should also track down and jail the MEN who impregnated them. Fair?

Catholic women do have the highest abortion rate. Partly because more of them are economically and educationally limited. Asians have very low abortion rates. Muslims have about 0% abortions. Nobody wants to discuss the demographics of abortion.
