BULLETIN: Criminalizing Reproduction: (Attacks on Science, Medicine and the Right To Choose.) Alabama lawmakers voted Tuesday to ban virtually all abortions in the state — including for victims of rape and incest — sending the strictest law in the nation to the state’s Republican governor, who is expected to sign it.


I have taken on the  them of criminalizing reproduction - a natural theme for a Blog concerned with  flawed science in its myriad forms  and its flawed devotees (like Charles Smith), as I am utterly opposed to the current movement in the United States and some other countries - thankfully not Canada any more - towards imprisoning women and their physicians on the basis of sham science (or any other basis). Control over their reproductive lives is far too important to women in America or anywhere else so they can  participate  equally in the economic and social life of their nations without fear for  loss their freedom at the hands of political opportunists and fanatics. I will continue to follow relevant cases such as  Purvi Patel and Bei Bei Shuai - and the mounting wave of  legislative attacks aimed at chipping away at  Roe V. Wade and ultimately dismantling it.
