    Some Republicans must think that making abortion more difficult won't affect their own ability to get that service for themselves.  Perhaps they believe that their "underground" will be in a nice out-patient clinic somewhere, and maybe they are right; maybe money can buy a safer underground abortion.

    In any case, Republicans are in denial if they think that Republicans never have abortions.

    A Wall Street "bonus" should not be more than what my house is currently worth.

      Before Roe, money could buy an abortion, no problem. Sometimes it was in the form of Benjamin to a doctor, where the procedure was done as an outpatient thing.

      Of course, the Spa treatment cost more. In that case, the abortion was usually preceded by a 1st class flight to Japan or Europe.

      Stupack-Pitts is part hypocritical moralizing, and part class war.

      Maybe Planned Parenthood  could start raising money for a rural traveling clinic system. We need to start thinking about increasing access, especially in red states.

      It is curious to see the periodical disuse and perishing of means and machinery, which were introduced with loud laudation a few years or centuries before. -RWE
