Women's Health Flung To The Side

Well, ladies, it seems we have an announcement to make.

Samuel Alito, John Roberts, Anthony Kennedy, Antonin Scalia, and Clarence Thomas are now your gynecologists.

They are also gynecologists that don't give two craps about the health of women.

Good luck to you all.

Also, here's a really fuckin' scary quote from Kennedy's opinion:

The Act’s failure to allow the banned procedure’s use where ” ‘necessary, in appropriate medical judgment, for preservation of the [mother’s] health,’ ” Ayotte v. Planned Parenthood of Northern New Eng., 546 U. S. 320, 327-328, does not have the effect of imposing an unconstitutional burden on the abortion right.
Congratulations, ladies. You don't have a right to protect your health, so sayeth your new gynecologists!

If it were possible, I would launch a movement suggesting that pregnant women, whatever choice they make about their pregnancy, call each of the five justices who voted yes on this and ask them, "What should I do about my pregnancy?"

I think we should make them perform some pap smears or something. They seem to think they're the experts and the rightful masters of our lady parts, they can maintenance them.

Or we could just send our pap smears to the Supreme Court. You know, make their job easier for them.
