San Marino votes overwhelmingly to end abortion ban

(CNN)The tiny landlocked republic of San Marino voted overwhelmingly on Sunday to legalize abortion under certain circumstances, according to official results published by the country's state secretariat of internal affairs.

Around 77.30% of voters approved the measure which would make abortion legal in the first 12 weeks of pregnancy. The vote will also make it legal for woman to get an abortion beyond 12 weeks if the pregnancy is life threatening for the woman, or anomalies and malformations of the fetus arise that pose a serious health risk to the woman.

Turnout for the referendum was low at 41.11% for the majority Catholic republic.

Up to now in San Marino, women who ended their pregnancies risked three years' imprisonment. The term is twice as long for anyone who carries out an abortion.

How to accurately speak Abortion.

Resources for Journalists Reporting on Abortion
Welcome Abortion 101 Abortion Later in Pregnancy Inclusiveness and Representation Voices to Select for Interviews Voices to Avoid


Abortion is a nuanced subject that brings together many aspects of our lives: health care, economics, insurance coverage, zip code, families, faith, immigration status, race, and gender. If you’re writing an article about abortion, you can use this resource as a starting place to ensure accurate and compassionate reporting. If you want to speak to an expert, please reach out to us at voice@prh.org.

Abortion is a part of the full spectrum of reproductive health care.

Just like contraceptive care and prenatal care, abortion is a normal part of reproductive health care.

That’s right, it’s normal. And should be talked about and treated as such.

Oklahoma Considers Database For Pregnant People As Roe Hangs In The Balance

The Oklahoma Legislature started its 2022 session this week with a slew of anti-abortion bills, which isn’t uncommon. “This is my 12th year in the legislature now, and it feels like every year we go through this,” said Oklahoma House Minority Leader Emily Virgin (D).

But this year’s anti-abortion bills ― 11 were pre-filed before the legislative session even began ― bring fresh menace. The state’s Republican governor has already promised that he would sign any abortion restriction the Oklahoma Legislature sends his way. Moreover, some bills, which clearly go beyond what’s allowed by Roe v. Wade and normally would immediately get bogged down in the court system, could actually become law given the looming U.S. Supreme Court ruling in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, which could upend five decades of abortion rights.

And the bills coming to the floor range from extreme to downright dystopian, including one that would create a state-run database of some pregnant people in the state.

“[W]e have absolutely seen the bills get more and more extreme,” said Virgin. “That’s due to the national landscape and the conservative majority on the Supreme Court. I think the anti-abortion movement has been strengthened and emboldened by that. And with our current governor, it’s pretty likely that he’ll sign any anti-abortion bill that makes it to his desk.”......

The most radical of the bunch is Senate Bill 1167, filed by state Sen. George Burns (R). Titled the Every Mother Matters Act, or EMMA, it would establish a government database for pregnant people looking to get abortions in Oklahoma. Each pregnant person will call a hotline and be connected with a “pre-abortion resource” assistant, but that person is legally not allowed to refer a patient to an abortion provider. The pregnant person would then be assigned a “unique identifying number” in the database, and abortion providers would be mandated to keep the information for seven years.

Colorado governor signs bill codifying the right to abortion in state law

Colorado joined a handful of other states Monday in codifying the right to abortion in statute, a party-line response to efforts across the country to limit abortion access in anticipation of a pending U.S. Supreme Court ruling on a challenge to the landmark 1973 Roe v. Wade decision that banned states from outlawing abortion.

Gov. Jared Polis signed into law the Reproductive Health Equity Act, which passed the Democratic-led legislature after dozens of hours of testimony by residents and fierce opposition by minority Republicans. The law guarantees access to reproductive care before and after pregnancy and bans local governments from imposing their own restrictions.

It also declares that fertilized eggs, embryos and fetuses have no independent rights — a response to failed ballot initiatives that sought to restrict abortion by giving embryos the rights of born humans. In 2014, voters rejected a proposal to add unborn human beings to the state's criminal code, allowing prosecutors to charge anyone who kills a fetus with a crime.

Colorado was the first state to decriminalize abortion in most cases in 1967, and it allows access to abortion but had nothing in state law guaranteeing it. New Jersey, Oregon and Vermont had previously codified the right to abortion throughout pregnancy, according to the Guttmacher Institute, a research organization that supports abortion rights.

Gonzalez said that while her group did not know all the details, Herrera had been allegedly in the hospital, had a miscarriage and then "divulged some information to hospital staff, who then reported her to the police."

Sounds like they are getting around the language by claiming that it only applies to the death of an unborn child. Thus, if the child is born alive and then dies a few minutes later, MURDER!

And this is why the perinatal language is so important, Suranis.

Too also: possibly some form of vicarious liability (conspiracy, aiding, etc.).

Larry Hogan can't be too happy with the Maryland bill. As a republican governor, he has flown under the radar, at least partially because he has to deal with a Democratic House and Senate.

A Texas woman who was charged with murder on Friday for a self-induced abortion will have her charges dropped. “Yesterday afternoon, I reached out to counsel for Ms. Lizelle Herrera to advise him that my office will be filing a motion dismissing the indictment against Ms. Herrera,” Gocha Allen Ramirez, the district attorney for Starr, Jim Hogg, and Duval counties, said in a statement Sunday. “In reviewing applicable Texas law, it is clear that Ms. Herrera cannot and should not be prosecuted for the allegation against her.” Herrera was charged by the Starr County Sheriff’s Office on Friday for the “illegal” abortion, a procedure Texas has managed to ban after six weeks. “The issues surrounding this matter are clearly contentious, however based on Texas law and the facts presented, it is not a criminal matter,” Ramirez wrote Sunday.

Oklahoma Republicans Just Passed a Law Forcing a Woman to Have Her Rapist's Baby
It's a near-total ban on abortion with no exceptions for rape or incest.

By Jack Holmes
Apr 12, 2022

t's a testament to the lawlessness coursing through our body politic that the Oklahoma legislature just passed, and Governor Kevin Stitt just signed, what's very nearly an outright ban on abortion. There is an exception in cases where the procedure would save the life of the mother, but otherwise it's a blanket ban. If you are raped and get pregnant, Oklahoma Republicans want to force you to give birth. If you are the victim of incest, Oklahoma Republicans want to force you to give birth.

They have moved beyond the convoluted explanations around how "the female body has ways to try to shut the whole thing down" and gotten down to brass tacks. They do not care what happened to you or why, or what it will do to your life. If you were molested by an uncle, that's God's will. "The baby should not be liable for the sins of the father," said the bill's author in the Oklahoma House, Jim Olsen, while defending his proposal to force women to have their rapists' babies. There's usually some pseudoscience involved about the viability of fetuses early on, but as Governor Stitt made clear on signing the bill, it's mostly down to the fact that they feel they can do this right now.
  • As governor, I represent all four million Oklahomans, and they overwhelmingly support protecting life in the state of Oklahoma," Stitt said. "We want Oklahoma to be the most pro-life state in the country. We want to outlaw abortion in the state of Oklahoma."
    "Attorney General John O'Connor and I know this bill will be challenged immediately by liberal activists from the coasts who always seem to want to come in and dictate and mandate and challenge our way of life here in the state of Oklahoma..."
One problem here is that abortion is a constitutionally protected right as determined by the United States Supreme Court nearly half a century ago. The current "way of life" in the state of Oklahoma—as it has been for 49 years—is that people there have the right to get an abortion, because Oklahoma is part of the United States, where the Constitution features a supremacy clause mandating that federal law take precedence over state statutes. It may now be the conventional wisdom that the current conservative majority on the Court will soon strike down Roe v. Wade, or at least deliver it a death by a thousand cuts, but multiple branches of the state government of Oklahoma have opted to openly defy federal law here. Oh, and by the way, that claim of "overwhelming support" is questionable as well, not that it matters when Stitt makes it clear that he's interested in being The Most Pro-Life Governor. Well, pro-fetus, anyway. The lives of women and girls don't seem to factor in very highly.
