Under the vigilante system of the new Caliphate of Texanistan — Y’all Qaeda of Gilead — anyone can report anyone who is even remotely involved in helping someone get an abortion after six weeks. And yes, that includes the Uber driver or anyone else even tangentially involved.
It will be like the Nazi era where neighbors spy on each other and report any suspicious activity to the SS. Except in Texas, the spice up the offer with the promise of a $10,000 bounty if you catch someone, but no risk if you don’t.
A complete stranger — one of the theocratic “eyes” of Margaret Atwood’s dystopian novel The Handmaid’s Tale — will be free to rape a woman in Texas and, if she gets pregnant and tries to remove the unwanted reminder of the violence against her after six weeks, the rapist or his allies can sue for a minimum of $10,000 plus attorneys’ fees against anyone who helps her. Oh, and the rapist can also sue for lifetime visitation rights.
Atwood’s novel was supposed to be a warning, not a “how to” guidebook.
The Talibangelists — the Talibangelicals — are crying crocodile tears over the fate of women in Afghanistan, but actively trying to import the same tactics for how to treat women in conservative states.
