The abortion question in 5 states
KANSAS, first state to protect abortion by vote sending shockwaves through the Republican party. This past Tuesday Montana, Kentucky, Vermont, MI and California all had ballot measures re: abortion rights. California and Michigan was predictable. But Montana and Kentucky. Anyone but me find it fascinating that these very red states, Kansas, Montana and Kentucky ALL passed ballot measures to PROTECT abortion in their states. Yet their states stayed solid red. Pro Life my ass.
With prop. 2 you could vote to keep abortion legal and still vote for your favorite Republicans. Without Prop 2, I think they feared too many would vote for Democrats.
So it gave the professed pro-lifers the opportunity to protect themselves while staying on the fuck all you other women band wagon. Sounds about right for republicans.
to prosecute HCPs for failing to attempt resuscitation/CPR on aborted fetal remains.
Still - I find it encouraging because for now at least, they just may leave women's healthcare alone in this state.
Let's just say, we frequently fail to take direction - and we aim to keep it that way.
Abortion rights winning everywhere
and then elect anti-choice candidates.
It makes my brain hurt.
