    You think poor, working class, or even middle class women just have $300-500 just lying around?  Sofa change, perhaps?

      What you don't think min wage earners can't spend 2.8-4.6% of their pretax yearly earnings on something like that?  or 3.2-5.4% of their post FICA take home yearly earnings?

      •  500 dollars.... (4.00)
        I certainly don't have 500 dollars lying around, and I'm lower middle class.

        The point is, Republicans want abortion to be illegal, except when THEIR daughter is pregnant.

        When their daughter is pregnant, they will find a way to sneak out of the country and get the fetus safely disposed of.

        For a middle class family to do the same thing, it would require not only a 500 dollar abortion, but a round trip plane ticket, hotel accomodations, food, etc.

        good grief. a lot of women who get abortions are high-school age. $300-500 is a lot of money.
