this made the news in Sydney. I could not believe this is 2019.
A woman can only decide what she does---as long as governments declare war on people which murders them it cannot deny a woman the right to an abortion. Anyway it is no man's business.
It gets even worse.
I asked this before which would be the worst state in the U.S. to live. Alabama is toping the list.
Police said the shooter, 23-year-old Ebony Jemison, acted in self-defense
Marshae Jones was 5-months-pregnant last December when she got into a fight with a woman outside the Dollar General in Pleasant Grove, Alabama.
The fight escalated, and 27-year-old Jones was shot in the stomach. She survived the shooting but lost her baby.
Yesterday, an Alabama Grand Jury indicted Jones on the charge of manslaughter, The Washington Post reports.
She didn’t fire the gun, but according to law enforcement, she started the fight and was therefore responsible. “It was the mother of the child who initiated and continued the fight,” Pleasant Grove police Lt. Danny Reid, told AL.com at the time of the shooting.
The Washington Post reports that police said the shooter, 23-year-old Ebony Jemison, acted in self-defense.
PEOPLE’s calls to Reid were not answered, and calls to the police station were referred to the D.A.’s office. The D.A.’s office told PEOPLE they had not released a statement yet.
Originally, Jemison was charged with manslaughter — but the grand jury didn’t indict her, and the charge was dismissed, the AP reported.
The two women, Reid told reporters, were fighting over the unborn baby’s father.

“The investigation showed that the only true victim in this was the unborn baby,’’ Reid told reporters. “She was relying on her mother for protection.”
The charges against Jones come weeks after a law was signed by Alabama governor Kay Ivey banning nearly all abortions, including those for victims of rape or incest.
The New York Times reports Alabama is one of 38 states that have fetal homicide laws recognizing the fetus as a victim when there is violence against a pregnant woman.
In a statement posted to Twitter reacting to Jones’ arrest, the National Abortion Foundation, a professional association of abortion providers, said, “This is how people — especially women of color — are already being punished & having their pregnancies criminalized.”
Jones will be held on $50,000 bond at the Jefferson County Jail, AL.com reports.
insane - it's the only word. Where is the outrage? What is going on? Is everyone watching TV is every one on FaceSpew? Is everyone? Are their brains been devoured by machine algorithms and now the machines tell them what to do which is obey the machines and do nothing else.
it can get even worse such as with the Epsteing guy.
It may be interesting if Bill Clinton and Tonald Trump is a part of that child sex trafficing thing.
