Teen Charged For Abortion After FB Handed Over DMs

This is the future these caring “pro-life” forced birth jerks want to create.    Minors whose life doesn’t matter because a note viable clump of cells has priority over her real existing life.  My dogs that love gravy, what can we do, what have we let happen.   I cry for the children forced to live through this nightmare.   A 10 year old whose body was too small and not developed was almost forced to give birth that might have easily killed her, this girl was trying to save herself from a forced birth, those laws made her not a person but an incubator instead.   Now these women controller forced birth people will feel entitled to imprison the girl to ruin her life.   Hugs 

Forbes reports:

A Nebraska teenager is facing criminal charges alleging she aborted a fetus in violation of state law, after authorities obtained her Facebook messages using a search warrant. Seventeen-year-old Celeste Burgess, who is being tried as an adult along with her mother Jessica Burgess, is awaiting trial in Madison County District Court on charges that they broke a Nebraska law banning abortions after 20 weeks.

This marks one of the first instances of a person’s Facebook activity being used to incriminate her in a state where abortion access is restricted — a scenario that has remained largely hypothetical in the weeks following the US Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade. Nebraska currently outlaws abortions beyond 20 weeks. On Monday, Republican lawmakers in the state failed to secure enough votes to decrease that window to 12 weeks.

The Lincoln Journal-Star reports:

In early June, the two women were each charged with removing, concealing or abandoning a dead human body, a felony, and a pair of misdemeanors: concealing the death of another person; and false reporting. But the investigation wasn’t over.

A week after the two were charged, the detective served a search warrant on Facebook, to get access to their accounts. He found messages between them suggesting Jessica Burgess had obtained abortion pills for her daughter, and gave her instructions on how to take them.

As if I needed a reason to despise Facebook even more.

A teen with a felony. For getting an abortion

Anyone think this country isn’t becoming Nazi Germany Redux?

In too many ways.

Which means she can never vote.

The Republicans started that with the War on (some) Drugs.

Either people have a right to vote, or it’s a goddamn license which can be taken away from anyone.

That is horrifying. I hope every woman in Nebraska votes against abortion-deniers in the next election, and every woman in a red state gets off Facebook immediately. Nothing is private any longer.

Interestingly, the Nebraska legislature Rethugs didn’t have enough interest/votes to come back into special session to reduce the deadline from 20 weeks to 12 weeks. After Kansas, they fear.

Nebraska is also where like a year ago or so a bunch of sheriffs dept did a raid on a CBD store wearing moon suits.

Every woman (and supportive man) in Nebraska needs to do more than vote. They need to go full Lysistrata by blowing up the legislature’s phone lines, taking to the streets in protest and openly defying horseshit laws like this.

They did. I was one of them. I know some of the senators in the state, including my rep. They got phone calls, emails, and letters, starting after the SCOTUS leak and it ramped up after the Dobbs decision was official. I know of one state senator who changed their mind because of it. I knew about this decision two weeks ago off the record. Kansas might have had something to do with it, but my rep apparently was inundated with people contacting him. Hopefully, this will carry into November.

    1. Hello Roger. These people are all for law enforcement when the law enforcement is assaulting and killing black people, arresting them for no reason, and sentencing them to long prison terms. But when a white republican or maga cult supporter of trump is arrested or investigated when there is video evidence of their involvement in a crime they scream how unfair it is and shout conspiracies. From what I am hearing now on the teen charged with abortion is that she told the police she miscarried, yet the police don’t believe her. Nothing in her Facebook writings mentioned abortion. Facebook is facing such a backlash they claim they wouldn’t have released the information to the police if it had the words abortion in it. I doubt that, Facebook is not going to take on the entire state and legal system over a single user. Hugs

    1. Hello Nan. Are you talking about the hope that this anger carries through to November or that a person’s freedom shouldn’t depend on where they live? Both are correct I think. I shudder to think every person who gets pregnant must now worry if they are being spied on by someone who might report them to the police if they miscarry or lose the baby. This cements the idea that women don’t have the medical rights and medical privacy rights that men do. This is a real moving backward in time. Hugs

      1. It was that the phone calls and emails made a difference. Unfortunately, many people either don’t think it does make a difference … or they simply don’t have (or take) the time to call or write.

        It’s regrettable, but in too may instances, unless voters let them know their feelings about issues, most of them simply “go with the flow.” Besides, in the current political environment, it’s also a “death sentence” to disagree with the maniacs in the Republican party!
