Oh gee whiz. You must have been new around here too because we clearly encourage lively, intelligent debate. Too bad you didn’t stick around because we love that Texans come in all shapes and sizes, range up and down the whole political spectrum and are a vocal bunch- though I think we can all agree that chili ain’t got no beans.
“It’s hard to look people int eh eye and say they don’t have a job anymore — not because of anything they, or we, did in correctly or because we weren’t caring for women in a fabulous way.”
Around one dozen clinics in Texas have shut down or stopped offering abortions after Republicans in the state successfully pushed through legislation that requires doctors performing procedures to have admitting privileges at local hospitals.
Other laws in neighboring states — such as laws requiring the widening of hallways or the installation of high-tech surgical sinks — have caused abortion clinics to fire workers and shut down.
Legislation in Republican-controlled states counts for half of the 73 clinic closures since 2011. The people hardest hit by the shifting laws: Poor and minority women.
Women who live near McAllen, Texas — many of them poor — will now have to drive 150 miles to Corpus Christi if they want an abortion. Their other option: The local flea market, where illegal do-it-yourself drugs cost around $15 a pill.
Republicans have stopped challenging Roe vs. Wade. Their new tactic: Make it harder to get an abortion. So far, their strategy is working.

Affordable contraception + sex education= fewer abortions.
Decrease the need not the availability, asshats.
