Set aside the pistol and smoking weed...

"The woman incarcerated in Alabama, 23-year-old Ashley Banks, said she was incarcerated at around six weeks into her pregnancy, according to a Wednesday report by AL.com. After six weeks of being jailed, she started to bleed and continued to do so for another five weeks, AL.com reported. She was forced to sleep on the floor due to overcrowding, she said, even after being diagnosed with a condition that heightened her risk of miscarriage. "

Guess it's only Pro Life in certain circumstances... (which we knew, truth be told)

So which pro-life groups came out in support of this exactly?

Is "abortion" even mentioned in the article? She wasn't jailed because she wanted an abortion, she was jailed because she exposed a kid she's going to keep to brain damage from drugs.

Methinks your bigotry is showing again. Something bad happens to a pregnant person so it must be pro-life's fault because they all support abusing women apparently.

Oh way to miss the point. Not shocked though.

To be honest, leaving this woman to be months with a medical condition that could have killed her child/her, is proof that this whole "Pro Life" thing is just BS.
there is no universe where that's true. I'm sure a tonne of pro-life people were quite upset at this woman's treatment.

It would be like saying that seeing as you're pro choice you must be happy to see this because the child was almost killed so it's too late to pretend you care about it now. I mean - what do YOU care if a fetus dies? That wouldn't be very fair would it.

You have to take the word of a crackhead and a radical website to believe this shit.
Well fair point but lets for a moment just assume it's true for the sake of discussion. Even if it is, this is a story of a woman who was treated poorly in jail. So how does that mean that pro life groups would approve of this? The suggestion that serryah seems to be making is that because some jail mistreated a woman therefore that automatically means that all those who believe in pro-life are in support of that and agree with it. There's nothing in the slightest that suggests that's true. I'm sure that plenty of pro life AND pro choice supporters are against people being abused in jail.

It's just a really weird stretch to say that if someone somewhere is abused then pro life people are somehow dishonest. It makes zero sense.

No, it's probably not true. We've seen these articles from this site before.

The last one posted claimed a woman was "forced" to carry a miscarriage for 10 days. Turns out 10 days is the average for the female body to discharge the remains and any bleeding to stop and why no Dr would see her on demand.

This site relies on women who are clueless of of their own biology to amp up there political edge.

It didn’t specify a particular group. There are multiples.

My comment about Pro Life wasn't about a specific group, rather the state itself.

Alabama's stance on Abortion: "Alabama has some of the most restrictive abortion laws in the United States. Alabama prohibits all abortions unless medically necessary to avoid a serious health risk to the unborn child's mother. There is no exception for rape or incest. "


And yet, "Banks has a high-risk pregnancy due to a family history of miscarriage. She said she was jailed at around six weeks of pregnancy. About six weeks into her incarceration, she started bleeding and was taken to Gadsden Regional Medical Center, according to court documents. Doctors diagnosed her with a subchorionic hematoma, a condition where blood pools near the wall of the uterus.



The condition increases the chances of miscarriage and preterm delivery, according to the Cleveland Clinic. Banks said jail officials told her she could sleep on the bottom bunk because of her high-risk pregnancy. However, her cell had one bottom bunk and two women assigned to sleep in it. So, the other woman used the bed, according to court documents, and Banks slept on the floor.



She continued to bleed for five weeks in jail. She said she also suffered from hunger and fainting spells. Two times, specialists evaluated her for drug addiction and found she didn’t qualify for free addiction services offered through the state. Her lawyers said investigators then urged Banks to say she had a drug addiction she did not have to bond out."

So while they are so all about Pro Life, they are willing to risk mother and child in a jail cell.

And she wasn't the only one.

(And because there was "comment" about the original source I posted, https://www.al.com/news/2022/09/pre...ooOEI7bGTBfEE45u2NONu7nmRc0nqvwfoHm4cuqR6fUF8

The link of which was in the Vice article if anyone bothered to look/read)

Also from the article: "Several pregnant women and new moms accused of exposing their fetuses to drugs have been held for weeks or months inside the Etowah County Detention Center under special bond conditions that require rehab and $10,000 cash."

If the state is SO concerned with the health of these fetus' then they wouldn't expose them while still in utero to higher chances of death for choices the mothers made. Want to be Pro Life? Set the mom up in a hospital at least, until either they meet the requirements of being let go or they deliver, then deal with them.

Do NOT parrot "Pro Life" then do shit like this.

THAT is why the comment at the start.

That's not what you said at all. Now you're changing your story to avoid what you've been called out for. Also - "i didn't mean any specific group" Followed by " i entirely meant specifically the legislature".

Uh huh.
