Texas Doctor Says He Performed an Abortion in Defiance of New State Law

In an opinion essay in The Washington Post titled “Why I violated Texas’s extreme abortion ban,” Dr. Alan Braid wrote, “I am taking a personal risk, but it’s something I believe in strongly.”A Texas doctor disclosed on Saturday that he had performed an abortion in defiance of a new state law that bans most abortions after six weeks of pregnancy, setting up a potential test case of one of the most restrictive abortion measures in the nation. In an opinion essay published in The Washington Post under the headline “Why I violated Texas’s extreme abortion ban,” the doctor, Alan Braid, who has been performing abortions for more than 40 years, said that he performed one on Sept. 6 for a woman who, although still in her first trimester, was beyond the state’s new limit.“I acted because I had a duty of care to this patient, as I do for all patients, and because she has a fundamental right to receive this care,” Dr. Braid wrote. “I fully understood that there could be legal consequences — but I wanted to make sure that Texas didn’t get away with its bid to prevent this blatantly unconstitutional law from being tested.”Dr. Braid’s disclosure was the latest — and perhaps most direct — salvo by supporters of abortion rights who have been fighting to stop the law, which prohibits most abortions after about six weeks of pregnancy, before many women are even aware that they are pregnant. The law makes no exception for pregnancies resulting from rape or incest. Even before his disclosure, Dr. Braid, who has operated abortion clinics in Houston and San Antonio as well as in Oklahoma, was already challenging the law in court. His clinics were among the plaintiffs in a pending federal lawsuit seeking to overturn the measure. On Sept. 1, the Supreme Court, in a 5-4 decision prompted by the lawsuit, declined to immediately block Texas’ new law. The majority stressed that it was not ruling on the law’s constitutionality and did not intend to limit “procedurally proper challenges” to it. On Tuesday, the Justice Department asked a federal judge to issue an order that would prevent Texas from enforcing the law, known as Senate Bill 8, which was passed with the strong support of the state’s Republican leaders. The Justice Department argued in its emergency motion that the state adopted the law “to prevent women from exercising their constitutional rights,” reiterating an argument the department made last week when it sued Texas to prohibit enforcement of the contentious legislation. At the center of the legal debate over the law is a mechanism that essentially deputizes private citizens, rather than government officials, to enforce the new restrictions by suing anyone who either performs an abortion or “aids and abets” the procedure. Plaintiffs who have no connection to the patient or to the clinic may sue and recover legal fees, as well as $10,000 if they win. Patients themselves cannot be sued.

Doctor Reacts To Marvel Medical Scenes [Video]

There are over 25 movies in the MCU, so today I decided to take a look at a few of the medical scenes that have popped up in Captain America: The First Avenger, Thor, Iron Man, and Doctor Strange. Disney spares no expense in making these Marvel movies, but how thorough are they with their medical accuracy? Sure, we can suspend our disbelief on plenty of things, such as Doctor Steve Strange entering his astral state to assist in surgery on himself, but there are other things I just can’t let slide, such as when to do CHEST COMPRESSIONS, CHEST COMPRESSIONS, CHEST COMPRESSIONS!

Live Coverage: WI v. Kyle Rittenhouse - Kenosha ShootingHappening in Court:Dr. John Black - Use Of Force ExpertREMINDER of the judge's ruling in defense use of force expert testimony: Schroeder told the attorneys that Black wouldn’t be allowed to testify about what Rittenhouse was thinking when he pulled the trigger or whether he definitively acted in self-defense.Assistant District Attorney Thomas Binger said if Schroeder allowed Black to testify only about the timeline of events that night he wouldn’t call his own expert to the stand. Defense attorney Mark Richards agreed to the deal.Charges:1. First Degree Reckless Homicide, Use of a Deadly Weapon (Joseph Rosenbaum)2. First Degree Recklessly Endangering Safety, Use of a Deadly Weapon (RichardMcGinnis, reporter for Daily Caller, not injured but near Rosenbaum when Rittenhouefired)3.

Prosecution failed to put evidence in front of the jury that there was a lawful curfew in place (appears to be an oversight by prosecution) Defense moved to dismiss, judge agreed. Fail to Comply with Order of Local Government - Emergency Management Activity (citation, carries no penalty) - everyone present was breaking the 7pm curfew issued by the sheriff. Possible Sentence: Max: Life in Prison Without Parole (WI does not have the DP)JURY CHOSEN IN ONE DAY. 20 jurors have been selected in WI v. Kyle Rittenhouse. 9 men and 11 women. (8 are alternates)Rittenhouse shot and killed Joseph Rosenbaum, 26, and Anthony Huber, 26, and injured Gaige Grosskreutz, 27. Prosecutors say that Rittenhouse, then 17 and from Illinois, was a vigilante looking for a fight. He, like other right-wingers, went to Kenosha, Wisconsin ostensibly to protect property. This happened as protests over police shooting local man Jacob Blake turned violent. Rittenhouse’s attorneys assert he was acting in self-defense. This case became a cause célèbre among conservatives.Prosecutors have struggled in court, failing to introduce evidence of prior aggressive behavior. This included evidence showing him attacking a woman who was in an altercation with his sister. The other is that he was closely linked to the violent, far-right Proud Boys organization.Kenosha County Judge Bruce Schroeder said an appellate court would reverse him if he allowed these in trial. The evidence was too prejudicial, he said. He left it up in the air whether he would allow footage showing someone identified as Rittenhouse discussing a Black man exiting a CVS pharmacy. Rittenhouse believed the man was shoplifting.#KyleRittenhouse #KenoshaShootingWatch Law&Crime Network NOW on YouTubeTV!https://tv.youtube.com/welcome/?utm_s...OTHER WAYS TO WATCH LAW&CRIME NETWORK IN YOUR AREA:https://lawandcrime.com/where-to-watch/Who To Follow On Twitter:@LawCrimeNetwork@LawCrimeVerdict@Cathy Russon @AddiTrialsStuff

Doctor Fauci to debate NIH co-worker about jab mandates [Video]

Doctor #Fauci and others will debate live a senior doctor from the National Institute of Heath about jab mandates taking place across the country .Doctor Matthew Memoli will take on all in an event that will be live-streamed to why he believes jab mandates are bad.According to The Hill,An unvaccinated doctor who heads a research team at the National Institutes of Allergy and Infectious Disease (NIAID) is leading a debate within the National Institute of Health (NIH) over the ethics of COVID-19 vaccine mandates. Matthew Memoli, a 16-year veteran at the NIH, will argue against vaccine mandates in a Dec. 1 live-streamed roundtable session over the ethics of mandates, which will be open for viewing within the agency, to patients and to the public, The Wall Street Journal reported. “There’s a lot of debate within the NIH about whether [a vaccine mandate] is appropriate,” David Wendler, a senior NIH bioethicist in charge of planning the session, told WSJ. “It’s an important, hot topic.”An appeals court on Saturday temporarily stopped President Biden’s mandate requiring employers to verify employee vaccination or ensure weekly testing. Memoli reportedly wrote in an email to NIAID Director Anthony Fauci in July that he found mandated vaccinations “extraordinarily problematic.” “I think the way we are using the vaccines is wrong,” he told Fauci. Memoli, who has reportedly applied for vaccine exemptions, favors vaccinations in vulnerable populations but argues population level vaccination could hinder the development of a natural, robust immunity gained through infection.Follow Jeff on social media:Twitter - https://twitter.com/jlightsy7Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/jefflightsyYouTube - https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCArztop2F5ypjiKmKILvB2AInstagram - https://www.instagram.com/jlightsy7/#VictoryFormation #BlackBOSSChannel​​​​​ #JeffLightsy​​​​​ #JeffLightsyJrDoctor Fauci to debate NIH co-worker about jab mandates
