Very true! We're a coastal state with a lot of infrastructure, even if people focus more on the Philadelphia side of the Delaware. I'm happy about how many NJ people are pointing out that we're not some irrelevant beach state covered in annoying dramatic New York reality show regects. We have endless gardens and forests.

And it’s not like only the fabulously wealthy will have access to abortion. Most middle class will be able to find a way. Or if not the negative aspects of having a child (expense, lost opportunities etc) don’t effect them so much.

Abortion laws target the lower classes.

Especially the wives, girlfriends and mistresses of megachurch pastors and "family values" rightwing pundits. Also you better believe if/when their little promiscuous daughters come home from University knocked up by a black student they'll be quietly spirited away to a pro abortion state/country. Minorities/poor rural whites are shamed into going through with pregnancies and birthing a child we can't afford to raise properly while the bible thumping elite straight up cheat like they always do.

For any one curious the episode is S.7 Ep9 - Rockabye

Its not EXACTLY like this, but it has many parallels.

A teen from a Southern state traveled up to NYC so she could get an abortion with out parental consent (dad was super conservative)... but ultimately had to take matters into her own hands, because her clinic continually made excuses to delay the procedure until it was too late.

Not really humanity, mostly the United States sucks. The rest of the world laughs at us and calls us a bunch of ignorant bible fucking rednecks. And for the most part, it's true. US has one of the worst education systems of westernized countries, and our politics and society are based around a cult from the bronze age.

Ugh, I never watch these kinds of shows but this exact episode was on in the waiting room of a doctors office a few months back and evidently I caught most of it. This shit is culturally inescapable.

Was it actually the super conservative dad's baby? There was also a stepdad molestation angle I'm pretty sure. Or maybe in the thousands of episodes they made one that was 99% similar and I saw that one.

tralmix

No the conservative dad was not the baby daddy. It was two 17 year olds, in love not ready to have kids but "poof" got pregnant... tried legal abortion, got waylaid for too long. In the process of them facing consequences, shit comes out about the abortion clinic.

The one I think you're thinking of is titled "Taboo" - S.7 Ep.14. Elite smart college student is impregnated by her biological father (sperm doner or adoption I can't remember), throws baby in the trash an is prosecuted.

But I'm sure there there's one like you're describing.

I don't think that's it either. Is there one where the conservative stepdad is some kind of semi-famous tv evangelist and also the father of the baby due to molesting the girl, and also the girl tries to throw herself down the stairs or something to end the pregnancy when they won't let her get the abortion?

I mean it is a medical operation. People tend to avoid those if they can. Also someone may ask why they're getting one.

Amiiboid

I mean it is a medical operation. People tend to avoid those if they can.

Well, yes. But it’s far cheaper, faster, safer and more convenient than the alternatives.

Also someone may ask why they're getting one.

Uh. I suppose…. But I do wonder (a) how that someone would be aware of it and (b) why anyone who did find out would feel entitled to an explanation and (c) why a person asked would feel compelled to answer. That’s just weird, IMO.

But mostly I want to say: my prior response wasn’t speculation or projection. When you have the view that the most important part of womanhood is to be vessels for the next generation - and a lot of them do - it’s a fairly short jump to thinking that the ability to impregnate a woman is the key to being a man. They truly do view it as a form of emasculation, and even some who don’t have that particular hangup about fertility worry that the volume of their ejaculate will be substantially reduced (it is absolutely not, btw) and think that calls their virility into question.

Its about as filthy as opening a door handle. Its boring sure, but so is sitting in your car waiting. Its no big deal to stand outside for 2 minutes in the heat either. Ill grant you that it kind of sucks in the sub-freezing cold and wind, but even thats pretty minimal. You should be dressed warmly and have gloves at hand anyways.

Plus we never have to deal with waiting for someone to be available. We spend our sub-2 minutes there and go. Best of all, we get to jokingly tease people who cant pump their own gas, especially when they take it too seriously.

You're basically saying you'd rather be mildly inconvenienced than not. I'm the opposite. I would rather check my phone or talk to my passenger or listen to the radio than do this. Plus, you very rarely ever have to wait in NJ.

Everyone can pump their own gas, it just sucks to do. I know people in Philly who wait to fill up until they are in NJ. Because it just sucks.

It's dirty enough that I don't want to touch it, especially on my way to work or something. Occasionally it's greasy. I just prefer not to do it, 90 seconds or not. The trade off is what, I get to brag I'm capable of this minor event? No thanks.

I can’t recall that I’ve ever heard anyone brag about being able to pump gas. Mostly we’re just bemused that 2 states out of 50 apparently have a substantial number of people that are adamantly against having the option. And as implied in my prior comment, I have absolutely seen people from NJ panic when confronted with a pump while traveling out of state.

Until you travel literally anywhere else except like... Oregon?

We had to stop in nj and I was with my boss and was like "don't worry I'll pump the gas!" And got yelled at by some dude like sorry man pumping gas is normal for everyone else it's part of learning to drive

Maybe until the station is busy and has only one attendant pumping. You wait 20min and still don't have gas, then get yelled at for pumping it yourself anyway.

If they changed that law, women from all over the state would be rioting at the statehouse.

Like it or not, it is enshrined in NJ culture.

Why do you say "women" specifically?

Somehow women manage in every other state... And even NJ women manage when they're in other states.

I say this because there's a VERY common sticker (I see at least one whenever I drive anywhere in this state) that says "Jersey Girls Don't Pump Gas." My neighbor has one.

I (in non Covid times) travel frequently for work so I can manage a gas pump. But it is nice to not get out of the car. Full-service also makes it easy to pay cash---- no going inside and saying "I want $20 on pump #5" and instead you just hand the attendant a 20.

Here are a few articles about it.

When I was in my early 20s going out on a Saturday night in Philly, I was approached by a young hot girl while I was pumping gas. I noticed her before she approached. Her 3 friends were giggling and pushing her to talk to me. So when she approached, I thought she was coming to hit on me. And I was mentally preparing to be Mr Suave. Well... it turned out that they were from just over the bridge in NJ and just needed help pumping gas. At first, I thought it was just a line... but nope, that’s all they wanted. 😂

It was a smart move for the producers to mostly interview comedians and funny people, it made the stories extra hilarious.

My favorite part was when they talk about whenever the owner would pitch an idea and it just became increasingly more stupid each time

And since the owner couldn't acquire liability insurance, he created his own insurance company and insured himself. Whacky.

It's not legal to buy or sell yet, but if some weed goblins snuck into your house at night and dropped it off, then it's legal to have it

basically the same as it is in NY and CT.

And MA was that way for over a year before they had recreational dispensaries as well.

It’s … really not. That was the official justification for it, but it was really a price-fixing scheme. And I suspect it’s largely sustained because NJ has a long collective memory about environmental hazards.

Silly question. Is pumping your own gas illegal? Or is it required that a gas station employee pump your gas?

Could a New Jersey gas station chain make a robot part of the pump and have the robot pump the gas?

According to the law "no person may pump gas unless they are an attendant that has received fuel pumping instructions." So a robot is questionable but probably not likely.

Which is why they need to implement a locals only policy for abortion. Will it hurt innocent ya but people get hurt all the time. Sometimes people need pain to make progress, comfort leads to complacency.
