    for one thing not every Dem is a serious about protecting reproductive rights.

    And predicting the demise of the GOP is a dangerous gamble. There is an inexhaustible supply of lunatics with a friendly face and tone who appeal to enough of a base to consistently get re-elected. I don't see it happening and underestimating the GOP's ability to re-frame or come up with new stupid stuff that is hugely appealing is a matter of false confidence and foolishness.

      Happens to us.  Because privacy is still somewhat respected on the abortion front, we are all missing out on all the babies with serious deformity and disease or are unwanted and unable to be cared for that aren't born suffering.

      That is all changing now, and there is no help either when you are unlucky enough to be in this position.

      I would at this point think that these politicians are really stupid for unleashing such human suffering for the whole country to partake in, but uh.....well, intelligence has never been their strong suit in my lifetime and I am just suggesting theories that have been proven over and over again.

      The only thing that has saved them thusfar in this debate is the privacy and the pain suffered in private that will have to move into full view from here.
