  •  You know, if they make abortion (9+ / 0-)

    illegal, things could get interesting. After all, pregnancy doesn't show for a while. So what happens if a woman travels abroad, has an abortion, and returns to the US?

    Wait for next bout of right-wing paranoia, something along the lines of France/EU/Latin America/China committing genocide on unborn American children. After all, the fun of being paranoid is that the conspiracy never ends.

    •  That's the Republican jobs plan, and the small gov (0+ / 0-)

      plan. It will take an army to enforce this stuff and they will hire every last one of them with taxpayer's money.

      is simply a return to the "bad old days".

      Prior to roe v. wade, wealthy women could always travel overseas to obtain an abortion. It was less affluent women who resorted to back-alley abortions, attempted self-abortions, etc.

      The pro-choice movement adopted the coat-hanger as a symbol for a reason. {{shudder}}
