Gloria Allred Opens Up About Nearly ‘Bleeding to Death' From Her Illegal Abortion
Kyle Grillot/ReutersAttorney Gloria Allred took the stage at a pro-choice rally in Manhattan on Tuesday and told a harrowing story about nearly "bleeding to death" after she was forced to get an illegal abortion following a rape in the 1960s.Describing herself as "living evidence of what happens if abortion is criminalized," Allred said recent anti-abortion legislation in Alabama, Georgia, and Missouri will effectively condemn women and girls to death by leaving them no options other than illegal abortion. While Alabama's near-total abortion ban stipulates up to 99 year prison sentences for doctors performing abortions, Allred said, "The truth is, the victims are the women and the girls who have to get a back-alley abortion and who are going to be left to die." The women's rights lawyer told the crowd in Foley Square that she'd seen firsthand what it was like for women who had no access to abortion in the 1960s. After being raped at gunpoint in Mexico, she said, she traveled back to the United States, found out she was pregnant, and discovered that it was a crime in many states for doctors to perform abortions. "I had to get a back-alley abortion in a bathtub from a person who was not licensed, they were just doing it for the money," she said. Once she began hemorrhaging, she said, the person who performed the procedure told her it was "[her] problem now." Allred recalled suffering from a 106-degree fever and being packed in ice once she was hospitalized, all while she

Trump's Defiance Fuels Impeachment Push as McGahn Skips Hearing
It's a dilemma that only grew more pressing on Tuesday, when former White House Counsel Don McGahn defied a congressional subpoena by declining to testify before the House Judiciary Committee at the direction of the White House. The impeachment process would strengthen Democrats' legal case for enforcing subpoenas, but it would open them to political attacks from Republicans who already say they are rushing toward a predetermined outcome -- and one that would be rejected in the GOP-controlled Senate. The White House has been goading Democrats into opening an impeachment proceeding by fighting many of the current subpoenas on the grounds they're not related to a clear legislative purpose.
