    by the ACLU. Anything is possible, but Missouri has a whole new set of antiabortion laws less than a month old that are much more threatening to abortion rights than this previously existing statute.  Since prisons all over the country are full of pregnant women, and since this same ban on spending state funds for abortion exists in so many other states, I doubt that the ACLU would use a woman with so little time to lose merely to challenge it in Missouri.

    There are many possible sources for funding, but of course the relatively small amount of money needed isn't the real problem anymore.

    •  I'm wondering . . . (4.00)
      if I'm not mistaken, one of the new laws has to do with a woman being transported across state lines for an abortion. If they stretch it out beyond 22 weeks, then the closest facility that could do it is in Wichita, but by law, they couldn't take her there.

      Yes, you could be right that there's a lot more going on there than we know.

      Usually when something this crazy goes on, it shows up on our Clergy For Choice list serve, but this is the first I've seen of it.

      very fishy.
