  •  Plz add "access to safe and legal abortion" (4+ / 0-)

    There are women who die because they're pushed into continuing pregnancies that they're not medically able to sustain, and in some cases this is because of the lack of availability of a safe legal abortion option where they live. This is particularly true for the rural poor, who are already medically vulnerable during pregnancy as a class.

    There's blood on the hands of the so-called "right to life" movement in this country.

    Some people are intolerant, and I CAN'T STAND people like that. -- Tom Lehrer
