Technically this is just an abortion amendment attached to separate bill which has nothing to do with abortion, but that effectively turns it into an abortion bill in my book.
Anti-choice Sen. Jim DeMint (R-S.C.) just filed an anti-choice amendment to a bill related to agriculture, transportation, housing, and other programs. The DeMint amendment could bar discussion of abortion over the Internet and through videoconferencing, even if a woman’s health is at risk and if this kind of communication with her doctor is her best option to receive care.
Under this amendment, women would need a separate, segregated Internet just for talking about abortion care with their doctors.
What could possibly be the justification for this? What will this accomplish? I honestly have no idea. From where I’m sitting, it’s just a mean-spirited trampling of basic rights.
