    if you live there.  I'm only talking about drawing national attention to the problem, same as you would do when women are oppressed in a foreign land.  

    When you live there, you have lots of opportunities for political activism and I have no doubt that you are already doing everything you can.  

    It's the Supreme Court, stupid!

      It's easy to forget places like Kansas.. but what becomes policy here harms hundreds of thousands, the same as every other state that isn't progressive.

      I've been watching this piece of legislation go through several contortions and it's pretty fast-track to pass, and Brownback WILL sign it.

      But what people don't seem to grasp is that by defining the act of fertilization as the moment of "life", we create a situation where Morning After (PlanB) etc. also become prosecutable or subject to civil exposure for costs and "damages".

      We're creating a paperwork war designed at running people away from consideration and eliminating access.

      We're crossing all sorts of lines here with our dictation to doctors as well as scientific assertions as fact within a piece of legislation
