  •  They realize it, (none)
    they just don't care (this is frequently the case with conservatives).

    Look,the people who count (rich, white) will still be able to control their health care decisions and have access to good health care.  

    The people who don't will not (kind of like right now,only worse).  They don't care that poor women can't get decent prenatal care, why would they care if they die from an illegal abortion?

    By the way, there are times Jewish law mandates abortion (if the mother's life is endangered, it is considered suicide, forbidden, to continue the pregnancy).  This is, of course, open to interpretation, but it's a fairly widely accepted rabbinic interpretation.

    Ergo,banning all abortions is a violation of Jewish law.  (want to point out that I don't approve of mandating abortion for a woman anymore than I approve of banning it - it should be the choice of the person who's body is hosting the fetus, as they are the one who is assuming the risks).
