Louisiana Woman Was Denied Abortion For Fetus With Fatal Condition, Wants ‘Vague’ Ban Clarified
The supreme court overturning Roe vs Wade has created some real grey areas when it comes to abortions in some states.
For example, Nancy Davis, a pregnant Louisiana women was denied an abortion even though doctors told her the baby has a rare birth defect and would not survive its first week of life.
according to NBC News, the rare condition known as acrania is a rare and fatal condition that prevents the baby’s skull from forming.
Miss Davis was told to get an abortion by medical professionals but was also told due to new state abortion laws they would not be able to do it.
Currently at about sixteen weeks the woman said “Basically, they said I had to carry my baby to bury my baby.”
Davis plans to travel to another state to get the abortion. And as for this experience she said, “This is not fair to me, and it should not happen to any other woman. This has truly been an emotional roller coaster.”
Louisiana law prohibits all abortions except when a woman is seriously impaired or at risk of death and when the pregnancy is “medically futile.”
And when are we going to start caring about people.

Watering flowers while Black: A pastor shares his story of wrongful arrest
Walking, running, driving are things people do. But as African Americans in this country it can lead to police harassment, unlawful arrests, and even worse death.
You’ve heard the phrase driving while black, walking while black, running while black.
Well how about we add another to that list, watering flowers while black.
That’s what happened to this pastor from Alabama who was watering an out of town neighbors plants.
Police arrived saying they received a call about a suspicious vehicle and approached the pastor.
Twenty minutes later he was arrested and placed in the back of a police car.
That’s when the neighbor who called the police told them that she did recognize him. She also added “He lives right there, and he would be watering their flowers. This is probably my fault.”
In spite of that information police still arrested and charged the pastor.
I can hear Attorney Ben Crump’s phone ringing now.
