The Viability Scam


See Amanda and Lindsay on the new anti-abortion law enacted by the Nebraska legislature. As I used to write about a lot in the vast majority of the archives that inevitably haven’t been migrated to the new blog, both anti-choicers and “centrists” have been fond of quoting Sandra Day O’Connor’s assertion that Roe‘s trimester framework “is clearly on a collision course with itself” because the point of fetal viability is being transformed by science into a significantly earlier point in pregnancy. The problem with this argument is that there’s scant evidence that this is actually true, and the fact that anti-choicers and centrists both strongly favor regulations that make it harder to obtain first trimester abortions makes it clear that they don’t take their own pseudo-scientific assertions seriously either.
