No contraception=more pregnancy/children=TURNOVER

Turnover yields workers that won't work long enough to vest in retirement plans. It also reults in lower salary (no annual increase). And women with kids more likely to work part time not even qualifying for benefits like health insurance. So very many ways this SCOTUS decision screws women and families.

1. Kick.

Dominionists and Opus Dei can't have women controlling their reproduction so that they develop financial independence.

3. Women who don't want to be pregnant have always found ways to stop being pregnant

This doesn't mean more workers; it means more injured and dead women. The one ray of hope is that information travels faster now, and it is easier to obtain pharmaceuticals to induce a miscarriage safely.

4. More kids = bigger labor pool.

Bigger labor pool = downward pressure on wages as well as submissive employees living in fear of losing their job and not finding another one. Slightly better than slavery/serfdom.

I don't know to what extent that logic still applies now that globalization has opened up an endless supply of accessible cheap labor all over the planet.

Interestingly, one of the main reasons feudalism ended in Europe was the plague shrank the supply of available labor. If neofeudalism gets established in today's world, it won't be defeated this time by shrinking the labor supply.

Jack Welch, corporatist extraordinaire, once suggested putting factories on barges so they can be moved from port to port (when workers and/or local governments start making demands they don't like).

Yes continual supply of uneducated supply of cheap labor might take us to a feudal system ... depressing!
