Abortion Prevention Bill Similar To The Texas One Introduced By Florida Lawmaker

A new abortion prevention bill in line with the one introduced in Texas, was proposed by a Republican congressman in Florida. Just like the controversial Texas bill, the proposed Florida abortion bill also prevents abortion for women form after about six weeks of pregnancy, when many pregnant women aren’t even aware that they are pregnant. Under the proposed bill, doctors would be prohibited from performing most abortions as s result.

State Representative Webster Barnaby introduced the bill.

Anyone who successfully sues an abortion provider under the proposal would be entitled to receive at least $10,000 under the bill, which would be paid out by the offending doctor. The Texas legislation allows anybody other than state authorities to sue suspected abortion providers and others who knowingly help a woman obtain an abortion.

Multiple parties would not be able to file different lawsuits and recover monetary damages for the same abortion procedure, under the proposed bill , and doctors may only be sued once for each illegal abortion they provide.

However, contrary to the Texas law, Barnaby’s plan allows abortions to be exempted in cases of rape, incest, domestic abuse, human trafficking, or a health condition that affects the mother. However, one has to provide supporting documents to obtain the exemption.

Bill says “the state of Florida has an interest compelling to safeguard health and life from the beginning of a woman’s pregnancy” in Florida.

 

A Florida Democrat named Anna Eskamani branded the proposal a “gross excuse of a bill” that “attacks women and birthing people.”

Eskamani said on Twitter on Wednesday that assaults on reproductive health care aren’t about policy; they’re about control and humiliation, and they’ll have a detrimental impact on communities who already face difficulties getting treatment.

Wilton Simpson, president of the Florida Senate, recently termed the Texas legislation “a fresh approach” and the Supreme Court judgement as “encouraging.”

In July, along with nine other Republican governors, DeSantis joined a brief urging the Supreme Court to reverse the historic 1973 Roe v. Wade ruling.

S.B. 8 – the Texas abortion legislation, went into effect on September 1 and is currently the nation’s most restrictive abortion law. However, on the day after the legislation went into effect, the Supreme Court ruled that it would not stop enforcement because of ongoing litigation. The Supreme Court did not decide on the statute before it went into effect.

Despite the fact that the plaintiffs, a group of abortion providers, “had raised substantial issues regarding the legality of the Texas statute at issue,” the majority of the court decided not to prevent the bill’s implementation in the meantime.

On the Caspian shore of Russia, thousands of dead seals have washed up

Published

Russian authorities inspected the coastline.

Officials announced on Sunday that over 2,500 dead seals had been discovered near the Caspian Sea coast of Russia.

Authorities in the Russian province of Dagestan stated that the cause of the shocking mass deaths was unknown and that they believed it was probably due to natural causes.

The number of dead seals discovered off the coast on Saturday initially appeared to be 700, but later rose to 2,500, according to the Russian Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment.

The Caspian Environmental Protection Center’s Zaur Gapizov stated in a statement that the seals had probably been dead for a few weeks. He claimed that there was no evidence that they had been killed or caught in fishing nets.

The dead seals were thought to have perished due to natural causes.

According to a statement posted on the Telegram messaging app by the Dagestan natural resources ministry, samples taken from the seals’ internal organs did not contain any traces of pollution.

A North Caucasus fisheries official was quoted by the business newspaper Kommersant as suggesting that the seals may have perished due to protracted storms, although the news website Fontanka.ru suggested that the mass deaths may have been brought on by a natural gas leak from the sea’s abundant resources.

The Dagestan ministry stated after this incident that there was still a stable number of Caspian seals in the region, “ranging from 270,000 to 300,000.”

According to RIA, the seals are at the top of the food chain and have no natural enemies as adults. They can grow to a length of more than 1.6 metres (5.2 feet) and a weight of up to 100 kilogrammes (200 pounds).

man who killed 70 years old Massachusetts couple over a barking dog was found in Florida.

man who killed 70 years old Massachusetts couple over a barking dog was found in Florida.

Police stated that they had apprehended the fugitive suspected of fatally murdering an elderly Massachusetts couple during a dispute about a noisy dog in Florida.

The Plymouth County District Attorney’s Office reported that Christopher Keeley, 27, was apprehended Thursday at 8:20 p.m. in Miami Beach, approximately 1,500 miles from the Marshfield home where he is accused of beating Carl and Vicki Mattson, both 70, to death.

The couple and Keeley allegedly got into a fight about a barking dog, according to the police.

According to court documents obtained by CBS, the alleged brute had been staying in the Mattson’s Gotham Hill Drive house as a courtesy to a family member but had just been ordered to leave.

According to Keeley’s arrest on a warrant as an out-of-state fugitive, Miami-Dade County jail records show this. It was unclear at first if Keeley had hired a lawyer.

 

Massachusetts couple

 

Questions were not immediately answered by representatives of the Massachusetts State Police and the Miami-Dade Police Department. It was impossible to speak with a district attorney’s office representative for Plymouth County right away.

A dog that had been reported missing earlier was also discovered dead inside the home, according to the DA. It’s unclear to whom the dog belonged or how it passed away.

This would not be the first time Keeley had turned to murder after a dispute.

In a dispute over a phone charger when he was 18 years old, Keeley broke his grandmother’s vehicle window, according to The Patriot Ledger. He was accused of intentionally causing damage to a vehicle.

According to Keeley, he attacked the couple after a dispute about a barking dog.

At least two further significant run-ins with the law involved Keeley. According to the publication, he was detained in 2016 at the age of 21 for organising and carrying out a group beating of a man with autism before snatching his cellphone and wallet. According to reports, a court in Massachusetts deemed Keeley “to be dangerous,” and he was subsequently given an 18-month prison term.

Keeley was recently charged with narcotics possession after it was claimed that he was found driving about with marijuana and Xanax. According to court documents obtained by The Ledger, he was charged with drug offences.
