    Planned parenthood is comissioning 37 foot RV medical centers to provide healthcare for women - including abortion services.

    They will be roaming just outside the borders of states that are trying to reenact the Handmaid's Tale.

    Wonder if Greg Abbott will order the Texas Rangers to patrol the border with New Mexico, detain any woman who looks like she might be of childbearing age, and force her to take a pregnancy test ...

    The problem is that many of the most theocratic, oppressive states are bordered by states with the exact same policies. If you're in Alabama or Mississippi, there is no bordering state that isn't just as determined to declare your uterus to be public property.

    However, this might help women in, say, eastern North and South Dakota, who are close to the Minnesota border but not close to any population center large enough to have a clinic (e.g. Fargo/Moorhead).

    This is misleading.

    TLDR: https://www.reddit.com/r/WhitePeopl...oint_its_safe_to_say_they_hate_women/ir2ltqu/ (except for this part: "Please fellow left leaning folks, don't fall for the same sensationalized unsourced bullshit that folks on the right have been falling for. If something tickles your confirmation bias, be extra suspicious. We are better than this." There's a whole lot of evidence lefty folks are not, in fact, better than this, particularly on Twitter.)

    Actually, the TLDR version is that the question is optional and has been on the form for 20 years. That, however, does not mean the question should not be there, nor does it mean the "optional" part may be removed in the post RvW world.

    It's like he had a bet with his poker buddies to see if he could cram all the bigotries in.

    Alito upset that allowing states to ban a life saving medical procedure has put the lives of people on the Supreme Court at risk.
    Just want to point out that more than one doctor has been murdered for providing reproductive health care for women. Can't think of any members of SCOTUS who've been killed because of how they ruled on a case. It doesn't seem like that's ever happened.

    While I'd never endorse it, those make for mighty big targets for protesters. Peaceful protesters, of course.

    Absolutely no one is surprised you would make such a statement. You might as well not post anything at all.
