It's just to harass abortion doctors. The pro-life crowd knows that they can't ban abortion outright now, so they slowly & methodically chip away at abortion rights little by little as they can. Not unlike how it took the UK an entire century of chipping away at gun rights till they finally got what they always wanted: a total ban.
Republicans don't give a flying f*** about the health of women, so let's quite that ridiculous pretense. If they had their way woman would be having coat hanger abortions in dark alleys.
Banning abortion means little to Republicans, since any millionaire can readily afford a trip to Canada or Europe to get the job done. Or are we going to ban travel by chicks who are knocked up?
Republicans -- having tiny brains that fail to make obvious connections -- would be utterly stumped by how there are all these unwanted & abused black babies (who in 16 years will be stealing your car, assaulting you, and breaking into your home), not to mention filling prisons to the brim at "only" $30,000 per year.
It's odd how Republicans move out to distant suburbs to avoid crime & b*tch about high taxes, yet they're doing everything in their power to produce a future wave of criminals who will victimize them & victimize their wallet with massive cost to the justice system.
Just last night on the news they had how Milwaukee is hiring more cops -- to help replace the 300 that will retire in the next year. Then there is the hell hole of Chicago -- that makes even Milwaukee look lovely by comparison -- where they need more cops such that the animals in the jungle don't shoot each other, which is evidently a favorite hobby for many of them. Gee, do you think these animals just appeared out of nowhere or do you think they were unwanted & abused, treatment that turned them into violent animals? Think they should have been aborted about 20 years ago?
We shouldn't just allow abortion, we should go all out and encourage it. Given poor women $200 in cash to abort. There was actually a charity that did just that; the woman who ran the charity got daily death threats for doing the ultimate of good deeds.
