Sep 8 AllisonM commented on Working Mom Going to Prison for Getting Her Teen Daughter an Abortion.
I would donate, and hate the shitty laws. But honestly, I've got mixed feelings on this one. I get that the abortion was unattainable, or at least would have been very difficult. But she ordered a drug on the internet and gave it to her pregnant, teenaged daughter. Just out of curiosity I googled abortion pills online. The site I looked at was full of misspellings, mangled english and warnings to seek a doctor's supervision. This was really irresponsible, and man, I understand she was desperate, but wow. 18 months is too severe, and won't help, and we should understand this as the consequence of the shitty laws, but this was really irresponsible and I'm having a hard time feeling totally sympathetic. Yes, pregnancy is dangerous too, and single motherhood is the road to poverty, but hell. This makes me want to go out and throw bricks at republican legislators. But dammit, I still feel a bit of disgust for what this lady did.

Hey, IA, congratulations and please know that labor is not that bad. People like to tell horror stories like they like to talk about injuries and car accidents. Did you know that I was on e t-boned by a dump truck? The insurance adjuster was shocked speechless when I said I was the driver- she thought I was dead!! Its one-uppsmanship and bonding. Or is intended as such, I suppose. People enjoy these stories as a way of remembering an experience they found life altering and believe others will relate. They don't genuinely mean to scare you, they are living a little vicariously through a shared human experience. Enjoy that baby, and don't let anyone tell you the kid won't smell good. They smell awesome!

@60 I wish they would do that with just about everything. I see why the rich asshole company owners don't care about outsourcing jobs to provide the cheap goods and services demanded by middle class cheapskates.

You paid bottom dollar for that seat. So did the shlub in front of you. You are not somehow more important than he is.

Ugh, is this going to be a thing? This whole discussion makes me embarassed. I bet this is what rich people picture when they think of the middle class.

@all the $30,000 millionaires in coach who have important work to do on laptops: if your work were that important, your company would have sprung for business class. If you are in coach, get over yourself. Your conspicuous consumption of cheap crap and crappy services is killing middle class jobs and making everything suck.

Jesus Christ, @32. I hope a cockroach crawls into your ear while you're asleep.
@33, thanks, I needed that.

This is why eye witnesses to crime are so unreliable. I bet if you asked that waiter to describe you guys an hour later, he'd describe the white friend asking for the bill. I'll bet if you led him a little, he'd remember seeing him sign the check.

@ 116 I know, right? Its a giant unanimous knee jerk, and coming from a sexually open minded bunch of snarky hipsters like those represented on Slog, that's something to see. Even the trolls are sitting this one out. Yep, it's a wrap- and don't forget to grab that laptop on your way out.

I think the situation with the cannibal cop is instructive. Leave now, take the laptop with you and have it analyzed. There's going to be evidence enough on there to have the guy arrested, which you want, because he's still dangerous after you leave. That's what cannibal cop's wife did, and she was taken seriously. Just because he eventually got out, he's still been through the system, is stripped of his authority position and is known to the system now, so he's no longer a threat to her or to their kid. I doubt he'll be able to get in her zip code after all that shit that went down. Getting out is dangerous, but she needs to neutralize this guy as an on-going threat, too.
