It is but one man with conviction. MUCH respect to Burr. He is what we need every elected representative in DC to be. An American first and foremost.
Remember, he has no intention of running again. That helps.

Trump World! Where the circus is always in town.
Well i see what you are saying but i do not think he could have unilaterally done this. It comes from the committee. Maybe more than one or at the least a damn good reason to bring the guy in.
yeah, some DEm's supported him.

This sums it up quite nicely:

View attachment 3821

" 34 Let your women keep silence in the churches: for it is not permitted unto them to speak; but they are commanded to be under obedience as also saith the law.

35 And if they will learn any thing, let them ask their husbands at home: for it is a shame for women to speak in the church."

Very Muslim like if you ask me. Seems our gun nut friends may be cleverly disguised. ;)

Women Who Have an Abortion in Georgia Could Soon Be Sentenced to Life in Prison

HB 481, which is due to take effect on January 1, 2020, would also have consequences for women who suffer a miscarriage. If a woman were to miscarry based on her behavior—such as use of drugs or alcohol—she would be liable for second-degree murder, which is punishable to 10 to 30 years' imprisonment. Even if she opted to leave Georgia to obtain an abortion—she'd still be just as liable for punishment in the state. If a woman travels to another state for an abortion, she may be charged with conspiracy to commit murder, which can lead to 10 years’ imprisonment. And if you're a woman who wants to help a friend cross state lines for her abortion, you could also be charged with "conspiracy."

It's nice to know that Georgia has such an abundance of tax dollars, and nothing that needs funding, that they can waste money on crap like this!

Georgia (bless their little pea-pickin' hearts) is a backwater, swamp-filled, sharecropper/plantation HELL of a place. Discrimination is alive and well. Regressive laws from the antebellum era still preside. The have unbearable heat and humidity which apparently makes everybody cray-cray with a capital CRAY, which is why they elect dumbass people like Brian Kemp--a MAN who will probably never be raped by his drunk step-father and faced with an unwanted pregnancy.

The Baptists and evangelicals control the government and are resistant to change or diversity. Neighborhoods are segregated, grocery stores are segregated, churches are segregated, parks are segregated, voter disenfranchisement is super common (see GA elections 2018) and efforts to change are met with a wall of resistance.

There are some lovely cities in Georgia--like Savannah--but otherwise........you couldn't pay me to live there.

Back to the heartbeat law. There's a reason it's implementation date is Jan 2020. There are a few problems to be solved in the COURT system. One of those issues is the "personhood" clause: the new Georgia law gives a delicate collection of cells the size of the fingernail on your little finger the full legal status of a standalone human being.
The ACLU has promised a lawsuit to overturn the “heartbeat” law.

The great irony is that Trump has probably paid for more than a couple of abortions over the last 50 years.
ISN'T that the truth? If Trump is such a SEX MACHINE, he's probably knocked up a fair share of beauty queens and of course we'd never know if his daughters had abortions.
