    Is there somewhere I can conduct an easy search for all common businesses situated in Alabama? I think I’m seriously going to boycott the state.

    Just curious, do Pro-lifers believe that "aborted babies" go to heaven, or do they believe they go to hell since they are souls but haven't professed to believe in Jesus in their heart? I guess there could be an infant wing in purgatory.

    Missouri rules against the state's last abortion clinic
    By Jay Croft and Holly Yan, CNN

    Updated 1:06 PM ET, Fri June 21, 2019

    (CNN) -- Missouri moved closer to becoming the first state without an abortion clinic Friday when its health department rejected a license renewal for the St. Louis Planned Parenthood location.

    A judge had ordered the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services to decide by Friday whether it would renew a license for the clinic, Reproductive Health Services of Planned Parenthood of the St. Louis Region. Judge Michael Stelzer relayed the health department's decision Friday in court.

    The clinic will remain open until further court order, Stelzer added. Should it close, Missouri would become the first state without an abortion clinic in almost 50 years. The battle has been brewing for weeks, as states across the country move to restrict access to the procedure.

    The St. Louis Planned Parenthood clinic sued the state's health department for refusing to renew its license, which was set to expire May 31. Stelzer granted a preliminary injunction that let the facility keep performing abortions while state officials decided on its license.

    M'Evie Mead of Planned Parenthood praised the judge Friday for keeping the clinic open for now.

    The American Medical Association is no Longer Neutral on Abortion

    The American Medical Association is suing North Dakota to block two abortion-related laws, the latest signal the doctors’ group is shifting to a more aggressive stance as the Donald Trump administration and state conservatives ratchet up efforts to eliminate legal abortion.

    The group, which represents all types of physicians in the U.S., has tended to stay on the sidelines of many controversial social issues, which, until recently, included abortion and contraception. Instead, it has focused on legislation affecting the practice and finances of large swaths of its membership.

    But, says AMA President Patrice Harris, the organization feels that, in light of new state laws in the U.S. that would force doctors who perform abortions to lie to patients—put “physicians in a place where we are required by law to commit an ethical violation”—it has no choice but to take a stand. One of these laws, set to take effect Aug. 1, requires physicians in North Dakota to tell patients that medication abortions—a procedure involving two drugs taken at different times—can be reversed. The AMA said that is “a patently false and unproven claim unsupported by scientific evidence.” North Dakota is one of several states to pass such a measure.
    .....................................................

    In recent years, the AMA has taken mostly a back seat on abortion issues, even ones that directly addressed physician autonomy, leaving the policy lead to specialty groups like the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, which has consistently defended doctors’ rights to practice medicine as they see fit when it comes to abortion issues.

    Ziegler said it is not entirely clear why the AMA has suddenly become more outspoken on women’s reproductive issues. One reason could be that the organization’s membership is skewing younger and less conservative. This year, for the first time, the AMA’s top elected officials are all women.

    So they will only allow an abortion if you don't know you're pregnant. Tennessee logic at it's finest.

    ---------------------------------------------------

    NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Abortion rights supporters are warning Tennessee lawmakers that the state is likely to lose a legal battle if the GOP-controlled Legislature chooses to pass one of the strictest abortion bans in the nation.

    Officials with the American Civil Liberties Union, the National Women's Law Center and Planned Parenthood issued cautions Tuesday as part of a two-day hearing revolving around a potential abortion ban proposal.

    A handful of Tennessee Republican lawmakers are trying to garner enough support to ban abortions once a woman learns she is pregnant. Legislators failed to pass a similar proposal in this year's session that ended in May.

    It’s progress that they recognize that women can learn, I guess.
