New Draconian Anti-Choice Laws Bring "Handmaid's Tale" Closer to Reality For American Women
These so-called "heartbeat" anti-choice bills started appearing several years ago and have already been struck down in several states. That hasn't stopped the march into dystopia by other states from enacting the same laws in the rightwing's never-ending quest to force women to carry pregnancies to term against their will. As I've said before, the only way these laws could work would be to declare every uterus in the country a potential crime scene and would require a network of spying and intrusion into the personal lives of women. It's easy to see how mindless anti-choice zealots would rat to the government any time a friend, co-worker or even relative might be pregnant and would be able to subject that woman to an investigation and monitoring in order to make sure she doesn't try to terminate the pregnancy--including in GA's law criminalizing her if she even leaves the state to obtain an abortion in a state where it's legal.
As is always the case, the rightwing runs eagerly toward a fascist, totalitarian solution for their problem even as they accuse liberals of being the advocated for the big nanny state. It's the Goebbel's tactic every time for these people.
