Planned Parenthood of Idaho has sued the state in attempt to allow non-medical doctors to perform abortions.
“The lawsuit filed December 14 by the abortion company and Seattle-based feminist group Legal Voice argues that an Idaho law requiring that a licensed physician perform abortions is unconstitutional” according to LifeSiteNews.
Legal Voice portrays itself as a women’s rights group in all aspects of life, focusing primarily the abortion issue. As if abortions weren’t dangerous enough, the group has taken it upon themselves to challenge the state law that required Medical Doctors to perform abortions.
The group and Planned Parenthood are bringing forth legislation that would allow “medical professionals” such as nurse practitioners, physician assistants and nurse midwives to provide abortions. Seven states plus D.C. already allow non-physicians to perform abortions, many of which also allow partial-birth abortions, according to Guttmacher.
According to LifeSiteNews, a plaintiff in the case, Mary Stark who previously lived in Idaho is currently a nurse practitioner in Oregon and expresses her disapproval with the lack of abortion availability in Idaho. Stark is dismayed with the idea that abortions are not readily available every day of the week in any of the five abortion factories across the state.
In referencing a ‘woman’ in need of an immediate abortion, Stark states: “The woman would have to decide, ‘Can I rearrange my life around that one day or do I have to continue this pregnancy?’” Being that Stark is a nurse practitioner in Oregon – where she can legally perform select abortions – that apparently gives her the credibility to petition the Idaho legislator to change its state laws.
Interestingly, the pro-abortion side advocates that abortion is a “medical procedure”, yet are now pushing that it be performed by those under-qualified to do so. The lack of safety precautions on abortions being pushed by Planned Parenthood illuminates their overall goal: money making.
Allowing ineligible personnel to perform abortions is a sure fire way to lead to the creation of Gosnell clinics across the map. And let’s not forget the lack of reporting regulations nationally required on botched abortions. The compilation of these medical safety red flags in the abortion procedure that the pro-death side is trying to administer is concerning for the health of women.
Texas Governor Greg Abbott Pledges to Outlaw Big Tech Censorship
Texas has had enough.
Texas Governor Greg Abbott is pledging to outlaw Big Tech’s left-wing censorship, announcing his support of a bill in the Texas State Senate that would open social media monopolies to lawsuits from users at a state level.
State Senator Bryan Hughes Senate Bill 12 would provide legal recourse for users of Big Tech platforms who are banned from the services to return, designating Big Tech monopolies such as Twitter, YouTube and Facebook as common carriers.
“They are common carriers and they cannot discriminate against people … it’s a violation of the first amendment,” Hughes said. “This is going to protect Texas’ free speech and get them back online.”
I am joining @SenBryanHughes to announce a bill prohibiting social media companies from censoring viewpoints.

“These are the areas that used to be the courthouse square where people would come and talk,” said Abbott of the legislation. “Now, people are going to Facebook and Twitter to talk about their political ideas, and what Facebook and Twitter are doing — they are controlling the flow of information, and sometimes denying the flow of information.”
“Texas is taking a stand against big tech political censorship. We are not going to allow it in the Lone Star state.”
The law establishing legal recourse against online censorship may prove legally durable enough to avoid breaching Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act. That law provides immunity for user-created content on internet platforms, and doesn’t give social media platforms a right to discriminate against active or potential users on the basis of political ideology.
The future for fighting Big Tech censorship lies at a state level. While some state Republican officials have proven reluctant to separate themselves from the lucrative business lobbies of Big Tech oligarchs, Hughes’ approach seems legally innovative enough to give free speech defenders a fighting shot at free expression online.
