    Just sayin...not endorsing. Know your Constitution.

    13th Amendment
    Section 1. Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the United States, or any place subject to their jurisdiction.

      But that will require an Article 5 movement, a MAJOR MAJOR MAJOR pressuring of Congress, or a radically changed and more enlightened Supreme Court (to reinterpret the words of the amendment and parse them tightly).

      None of which is going to happen any time soon.

      If it's
      Not your body,
      Then it's
      Not your choice
      And it's
      None of your damn business!
