If there’s one constant in Donald Trump’s career, it’s unabashed sexism. Some have questioned whether Trump truly opposes reproductive freedom, but we know this for sure: Trump’s presidency and proposed policies pose a clear and present danger to women.

Policy Positions
While Donald Trump has never held office, he's voiced support for a number of anti-choice policies that would have a devastating impact on women nationwide.
In His Own Words
Donald Trump has made his opposition to reproductive freedom clear.
But that's not all. We've never seen a presidential candidate who judges and insults women the way Donald Trump does.
Donald Trump on Reproductive Rights and Women's Equality

Women should be afraid of this man! Very afraid. He is dangerous! While it is true that he has not yet been sworn in as president, he has clearly telegraphed his intentions - including the people he has surrounded himself with.

Outlawing abortion after 20 weeks is supported by a lot of folks (with the exception of health of the mother). With the ability to detect pregnancy now within days, it seems that makes sense, since premies after 5 months often live. Visit any neonatal ICU.

I doubt that any self respecting SCOTUS justice would reverse a clearly decided Supreme Court precedent.

And this whole issue is just yet another case of where Pres-Elect Donald will need to take it back.

Anti abortion movements are fanatical, religious, and irrational.

At most you could make an argument that this is strictly a state issue reserved to the states by the original unadulterated US Constitution.

But "outlawing abortion" is something that only the fanatics in Utah would go for.

That's the same state that has polygamous families.

Go figure.

The Planned Parenthood funding thing worries me the most.

I agree, but that doesn't matter. Look who we just elected.

Why should I pay for an abortion?

To oppose abortion factories like Dr. Gosnell was running is to be a fanatic? Religious? Irrational?

Kiss my ass.

Kiss your ass? No thanks! Do you think Dr. Gosnell is the norm? Gosnell was caught and punished with life in prison without the possibility of parole.

On May 14, 2013, Gosnell struck a deal with prosecutors in which he agreed to waive all his appeal rights regarding his conviction on the day earlier. In exchange, prosecutors allowed Gosnell to be sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole.[116]

On May 15, 2013, Gosnell was sentenced to life in prison for the third child's murder.[117]

Herr Drumpf and the "Republicans" in congress are no different than other fascists in history.

"Whereas previously the programs of the liberal, intellectualist women's movements contained many points, the program of our National Socialist Women's movement has in reality but one single point, and that point is the child, that tiny creation which must be born and grow strong and which alone gives meaning to the whole life-struggle"
-- Adolf Hitler; from speech to the NS Frauenschaft (Sept. 8, 1934)

Does Planned Parenthood still talk pregnant mothers, most of whom are black, into waiting another month or two before having the abortion so they will have more fully developed organs from the babies to sell? Just asking.

If I knew I wouldn't have asked the question.

I am equally sure that it did.

Link, please. Unless it was your own personal experience, of course.

When did Planned Parenthood ever do that? If so, were they convicted? Or are you just recounting Pimp O'Keefe's doctored/edited videos?

That was quite a reach around, hope you didn't sprain anything.
