Happy International Women’s Day

Insider: Police are prosecuting​ abortion seekers using their digital data — and Facebook and Google help them do it – “This spring, a woman named Jessica Burgess and her daughter will stand trial in Nebraska after being accused of performing an illegal abortion — with a key piece of evidence provided by Meta, the parent company of Facebook. Prosecutors said Burgess helped her daughter find and take pills that would induce an abortion. The teenage Burgess also faces charges of illegally disposing of the fetal remains.”

This is your semi-regular reminder that women in the United States have had their rights to bodily autonomy taken away. We don’t currently get to make important decisions about our own health and well being. Dried out old farts in various state and federal governments get to do that for us. Woooo, freedom!
