No one takes methotrexate because they want to. My hair fell out and I spent days vomiting after my self injections weekly. We take it because we want to be able to walk. I know you all understand this, but it’s not negotiable for certain patients.“I have gotten some reports where children have been denied methotrexate for their juvenile arthritis until they’ve proven they’re not pregnant,” said Dr. Cuoghi Edens, an assistant professor of internal medicine and pediatrics at University of Chicago Medicine and a rheumatology expert who treats adults and children.
In one case, a pharmacist initially refused to dispense methotrexate to an 8-year-old girl in Texas. In a note the child’s doctor shared with Edens, the pharmacist wrote, “Females of possible child bearing potential have to have diagnosis on hard copy with state abortion laws.”

Yes, but don't you see, this is a small price that white republican men are willing to pay for the greater goal of stripping all women of personhood and reducing them to chattel as G*D intended.No one takes methotrexate because they want to.

...won't someone think of the children???...before Friday, he received four or five vasectomy requests a day. Since the court’s decision was announced, that number has spiked to 12 to 18 requests per day.
This idea was lightly touched on in John Sladek's Mechasm (aka The Reproductive System - 1968), where children are allowed to sue their parents for everything that goes wrong with their lives and/or every crime they commit because it was obviously their parents' fault that they turned out that way."The year is 2096. The nation is held in the grip of The Birthers, who believe when a child is conceived that it inherits the life of it's mother, leaving the woman nothing but a temporary vessel from which the soul resides till birth.

Multiple Democratic lawmakers were arrested at an abortion rights rally near the Capitol on Tuesday, less than one month after the Supreme Court issued a ruling that reversed Roe v. Wade.
Democratic Reps. Ilhan Omar (Minn.), Ayanna Pressley (Mass.), Jackie Speier (Calif.), Bonnie Watson Coleman (N.J.), Rashida Tlaib (Mich.), Cori Bush (Mo.), Katherine Clark (Mass.), Andy Levin (Mich.), Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (N.Y.), Alma Adams (N.C.), Veronica Escobar (Texas) and Carolyn Maloney (N.Y.) were among those apprehended at the demonstration, which included a march from the Capitol to the Supreme Court.
At 1:20 p.m., the U.S. Capitol Police wrote on Twitter that it began arresting activists blocking First Street NE. Authorities said they gave their traditional three warnings before taking protesters into custody.
As of 1:35 p.m. the demonstration was clear, according to Capitol Police, which reported that 17 lawmakers were arrested in total. Authorities arrested 35 people overall for crowding, obstructing or incommoding.
