    Of course, that was at a time you didn't risk being a victim of drug cartel violence just by crossing the border into Juarez.

    My original answer was meant to be sarcasm.  Sorry if it didn't come across that way to you.  A woman shouldn't have to travel to Mexico to receive such services - although the time may come when the travel to Mexico or Canada is less of a hassle than getting the procedure done stateside.

    "Mitt who? That's an odd name. Like an oven mitt, you mean? Oh, yeah, I've got one of those. Used it at the Atlas Society BBQ last summer when I was flipping ribs."

      that a woman should go. The murder rate of women there has been speculated to be a backlash against the local women for working when there's less work available for the men; it is local women who have been targeted. Still, with around 370 murders just of women there, I would never counsel someone to go there and I wouldn't go there either.

      I'm amazed by people's courage and kindness in the face of everything and life.
