Oklahoma slutshaming law stalled again

A couple of months ago I posted about how an Oklahoma judge temporarily barred the travesty of the state’s proposed “Abortion Registry”, which would post online the five W’s of all women having abortions in the state.   “Temporarily” ended yesterday, but once again the malevolent masturbatory dreams of fascist punishment freaks have been dashed upon the rocks of reason and privacy rights, as the restraining order against the Oklahoma Slutshaming Law was extended:

A judge in Oklahoma extended on Friday a temporary restraining order on a law that would post information online about women who get abortions in the state.

In extending the restraining order, Oklahoma County District Judge Daniel Owens denied the state’s motion to dismiss the case, putting the measure on hold until a February 19 hearing.  […]

The law, passed in May, requires doctors to fill out a 10-page questionnaire for every abortion performed, including asking the woman about her age, marital status, race and years of education. In all, there are 37 questions the women are to answer.

Critics say the act would be harassment and an invasion of privacy.

Having your gynecological history posted online is an “Invasion of privacy”?  No!  Ya think!??  Looks like 93/100 CNN readers agree:

Just imagine if this same kind of law applied to, oh, I don’t know — erectile dysfunction treatments?  What do you suppose the reaction would be?  Men would stop getting treatment, that’s what, which is precisely what the “abortion registry” is meant to do to women.  SLUTSHAMING of the most primitive order.

    He has only temporarily postponed it because not everyone in Oklahoma has internet access. They will probably just go back to stoning these sluts in the town square. That way everyone can participate… *sigh*

    I think the law should go forward… provided that it is extended not only to those suffering from limp sausage disease but any and all cosmetic surgery treatments. Botox, tummy tucks, butt lifts, jumbo fake titties, nose jobs, face lifts, liposuction etc. That would be something to shut the right wing, gas bags up as one quick look at the likes of Coulter or Atlas Jugged would confirm. There’s no shortage of society ladies out there, one face lift short of a goatee.

    SQ – Public stoning would be a lot more fair, I guess. Not to the women of course, but so what.

    PSA – That would probably lessen the clamour somewhat, but if they added “erectile dysfunction” to the list of procedures being kept track of, the silence of those in favour of tracking abortions would be deafening.


Wait. What?
