Bill Nye Debunks Anti-Abortion Logic With Science

That’s what Bill Nye has to say in his latest educational video, “Can We Stop Telling Women What to Do With Their Bodies?” In the video, which you can watch above, Nye explains how the idea of “life at conception” simply doesn’t make sense – because many more eggs are fertilized than become humans, due to factors like failure to attach to a woman’s uterine wall.

Tomorrow, California will vote on a bill that would require crisis pregnancy centers to tell women the truth about their reproductive health options. One politician asked why a lawmaker cared so much about the bill, and her response is PERFECT.

Of course women frequently think about their abortions and feel pangs of regret. But for most, it’s not because, as the anti-choice movement would have you believe, they think they should have had the baby. It’s often more that they regret getting into a situation that required an abortion: an accidental pregnancy, a bad relationship, that sort of thing. It’s like when you break your leg and you ruefully look at the cast later. You’re regretting that you made the mistake that led to a broken leg, but you’re not mad that medical science was on hand to fix the problem.

33 year old Indiana woman Purvi Patel was just sentenced to 41 years, 20 of them in prison, 10 suspended, remainder probation, FOR HAVING A MISCARRIAGE (no abortion drugs were found in her system, no evidence of her buying abortion pills exists other than a message of her inquiring about them, no actual proof the fetus was alive at birth, yet she was convicted for both feticide and child neglect even though those two charges are completely contradictory). They’re saying feticide laws were made to protect women. It is clear now they were actually made to punish them. Yet no word on most mainstream media about this - do we really have to wait for a white woman to become a victim of this witch hunt for it to finally matter?

REMINDER: The judge in Patel’s case, Elizabeth Hurley, was the first superior court appointee by Indiana’s conservative governor, Mike Pence. Judge Hurley allowed the jury to view a video of police interrogating Patel in post-operative recovery, despite defense arguments that Patel’s Miranda rights were ignored and she was recovering from sedation and severe blood loss during the questioning (she was questioned right after receiving medical help).
BREAKING: Obama Just Ensured PERMANENT Funding For Planned Parenthood
This is HUGE! President Obama has just ensured that millions of American men and women will have access to the reproductive health they deserve.

“President Obama has taken decisive steps to protect Planned Parenthood’s federal funding once and for all, dealing a decisive blow to anti-choice religious extremists and misogynist Republicans around the country who have been fighting tirelessly to destroy the beloved reproductive healthcare provider once and for all.

The Obama Administration has announced a new rule that would ban states from withholding Title X family planning funds from certain recipients for any reason other than the provider’s “ability to deliver services to program beneficiaries in an effective manner.”

“This will make a real difference in so many people’s lives. Thanks to the Obama administration, women will still be able to access the birth control they need to plan their families, and the cancer screenings they need to stay healthy!” cheered Cecile Richards, president of Planned Parenthood. “This rule makes it clear that politicians cannot ignore the law as they pursue their agenda to stop women from getting the care they need.”
