    Just sort of willfully blind on this issue.  I actually had a calm and reasonable interchange on Twitter with her re. her comments in the article.  I said that her suggestions were impossible because the modern Republican party had squeezed out reasonableness and that the base would NEVER trade easier access to contraception for restrictions on abortion (and the Dems probably wouldn't either, for that matter).  When I brought up Texas, she said (in all seriousness) that it "wasn't an attack on reproductive rights" because she agreed with the ban on 20+ week abortions.  I had to remind her (?) that the legislation also shut down all but 5 clinics in Texas.  I think some Republican women have just convinced themselves, against all evidence, that the goal isn't to ban all abortion except for the wealthy.
