One wonders if it's worth so much of the government's time just to prevent the issuance of a "DEEZNTZ" license plate. reason.com/2022/05/06/mai…

Everyone in my life keeps trying to make me give my son rice cereal or teething biscuits or “puffs” like I haven’t read approximately 600 things about baby nutrition before we started this process 🙅🏼‍♀️ (We started w/bone broth,then avocado, & are about to try broccoli, thank you)
Just made a bunch of homemade baby food, so I’m basically an Instagram mommy (or Diane Keaton in Baby Boom) now
Pro-lifers, explain how we're going to legislate abortion, esp. Louisiana-style, if that law passes. lucysteigerwald.substack.com/p/pro-life-in-…

Perhaps it should take a little more than a quote from a random classmate of Elon Musk's to discredit the thought of a major philosopher like John Stuart Mill in the eyes of the newspaper of record?

The idea that the problem with apartheid South Africa was "unchecked speech"—rather than extreme censorship, propaganda, and oppression—is just remarkably ignorant. And this is not from some rando on Twitter; it's from the New York Times' Johannesburg Bureau Chief!

“I am not asking you to like abortion. Or to stop questioning it on moral grounds. I want you you tell me how we’re going to control the inside of a a body, when laws have already failed to deal w/sexual transactions, and drug use, and trans & gay people” lucysteigerwald.substack.com/p/pro-life-in-…
From @ENBrown: States may ban "'aiding and abetting' an abortion, which could mean police investigating and the state prosecuting people who help women obtain an abortion in any way (including by traveling to another state to obtain one legally)." reason.com/2022/05/06/end…

@ENBrown Anyone who suffers from sinus problems should already understand how prohibition harms people who aren't even engaged in the targeted behavior. And pregnant women are a VASTLY larger group than meth-makers, which will require far more invasive police-statery to enforce.

Among other things, @ENBrown explains how a "war on abortion" would increase all the existing problems of the "war on drugs" and mass surveillance. twitter.com/ENBrown/status…

Overturning Roe Would Mean New Avenues for Political Fighting With court battles & Congressional legislation at stake, the idea that anything about U.S. politics would get LESS volatile, extreme, or partisan in the wake of Roe being overturned seems like wishful thinking...
Banning Abortion Would Mean Less Freedom in Other Realms Any legal formulations used to justify or enforce abortion bans could be used to justify or enforce other bans or regulations too (See: California emulating Texas abortion law but for guns) reason.com/2022/05/06/end…
Banning Abortion Would Encourage Censorship We're looking at more surveillance of private & communications. More attempts to censor ads for abortion funds or info on how to self-induce an abortion. More lawsuits over speech. More fights over Section 230 reason.com/2022/05/06/end…
We're also starting to see states ban or attempt to ban "aiding and abetting" an abortion, which could mean police investigating and the state prosecuting people who help women obtain an abortion in any way, even in a legal abotion state pbs.org/newshour/polit…
Banning Abortion Would Grow the Government reason.com/2022/05/06/end…
And even with abortion legal, we've seen some states investigating, prosecuting, and imprisoning women they blame for their miscarriages... reason.com/2021/10/14/wom… reason.com/2019/06/27/a-p… reason.com/2022/04/11/tex…)
In Alabama, pregnant women are already regularly prosecuted for "chemical endangerment of a child" for taking illegal drugs during pregnanc, even where the drug is only marijuana and/or there's no discernible harm done to the fetus reason.com/2021/04/23/sic…
Banning Abortion Would Be Bad for *All* Pregnant Women & Their Doctors Pregnant women across the board could face increasing scrutiny & restrictions. Women who miscarry could face heightened hostility & suspicion. OBGYNs & health clinics could face more monitoring & regulation
Banning Abortion Would Be Bad for Kids ... including the existing children of women who would otherwise get abortions & eventual offspring of women with unwanted pregnancies who aren't capable of or willing to provide a healthy gestational environment reason.com/2022/05/06/end…
Obviously, abortion bans fall hardest on people with unwanted or unsustainable pregnancies. But they would bring many second-order effects, too, which is what I tried to explore here reason.com/2022/05/06/end…
Skeptics of state power have many, many reasons to worry about the end of Roe. @ENBrown explains reason.com/2022/05/06/end…

It’s not all out of the question that we’ll see more of these. My colleague @ENBrown covered a similar case, where an Alabama woman was charged with manslaughter after someone else shot *her* in the stomach, killing her fetus. reason.com/2019/06/27/a-p…

Last fall, I covered the case of an Oklahoma woman who received 4 years in prison for having a miscarriage as a teen. Prosecutors blamed it on her behavior, despite that she miscarried at 17 weeks, within the state’s legal abortion timeframe. reason.com/2021/10/14/wom… twitter.com/asymmetricinfo…

Okay. Not enough people are pointing out the fact that the M*d*s*n C*wth*rn video is revenge porn. And not enough people outside of the LGBT+ community are calling out the homophobic criticism of a video that shouldn’t even be circulating because, again, it’s revenge porn.

I wrote this for work about HB 7, Florida’s government censorship bill. July Perry, the Groveland Four, and other Black Floridians deserve to have their stories taught without whitewashing, and students have a 1st Amendment right to learn about them.

If you tell me you fear the other party is imminently going to permanently end democracy in America, and you're also not willing to compromise on your least electorally popular ideas to cater to the median voter, I have a hard time believing you really think those are the stakes.

Unlike bans on contraception or interracial marriage, this is a dumb idea I can definitely see Republicans pursuing. twitter.com/mattyglesias/s…

Same. Though I'm also happy to support an amendment guaranteeing any of that plus more bodily autonomy than most Dems would grant. Want to smoke a flavored vape? Do mushrooms? Take an experimental drug? Sell a kidney to a needy recipient? I don't think the state should stop you. twitter.com/asymmetricinfo…

I think the people catastrophizing about contraception or interracial marriage being next after Roe sincerely believe it. But I'm sorry, I cannot take this seriously.

4/If you have 52% support and our institutions require you to have 55% to get anything done, yes that sucks, yes that's unfair, yes that should be reformed. But at the same time, 52% support is not nearly enough to effect a wide-ranging overthrow of U.S. institutions!!

@OsceolaSheriff First time I've seen this: @OsceolaSheriff today said his agency had applied Marsy's Law, the victims rights amendment, to both sides of this shooting, shielding the names of the deputies who fired and the people they shot, one of whom was killed and two of whom were arrested.

Back in the 1990s, Bill Clinton led a bro/feminist coalition against the scoldy christians. And recall that at one point it was CW that the GOP's scoldy base would never go for Trump — but he successfully created a scold/bro synthesis that ending Roe destabilizes.
