Missouri lawmakers have decided that women are not capable of making their own medical decisions without politician’s interference, so they’re pushing legislation that would extend the state’s 24-hour waiting period before a woman can get a safe and legal abortion to 72 hours.
This bill is designed to demean and shame a woman in an effort to try to change her mind. And for some women, it could pose a senseless health risk by forcing abortions later in pregnancy. But the real kicker? That mandatory 72-hour period doesn’t count weekends, so some women will actually have to wait five (or more!) days before they can get the care they need. So here’s to Missouri—because the banks might be open on weekends, but according to politicians, women’s brains apparently aren’t.
