A Brief And Obvious Point About Texas Passing The Nation's Highest Restrictins Against Reproductive Choice

Used also for ulcers
Passing laws against an activity...

does not end the activity.

Texas shares a border with Mexico, where all manners of medical procedures are available to desperate people with hard currency, and not even very much of it. According to the NY Times, a relatively effective pill is also available in flea markets, with a common price quoted as $35 for the generic, and $175 for the branded.

Pill-based procedures are, of course, far less safe for the woman, and while I'm sure that will be just fine for some, the simple fact of the matter is that they'll wind up going to emergency rooms when things go very, very wrong.

So, let's recap.

The law's stated goal is to lower the number of abortions.

It won't.

And as a side effect, more people will die, and Texas residents will pay more.

But on the plus side, they won't have so many places to picket, and they'll be able to pretend they did a good thing.Since they won't be able to see places where the procedure happens, and will be able to pretend that the problem went away.

Instead of to the flea market and the emergency room.

Oh, and a small and obvious note to women in Texas.

If you don't change your legislature very, very quickly...

Can I suggest a change in address?

Unless, of course, you like the idea of being forced to carry a rapist's baby to term as the state's brood mare...
