...Roe vs Wade, and case law has been working its way up to the SCOTUS. It is now a tossup as to whether a majority on the Supreme Court will overturn Roe in the next few years.

Many states now have few if any women's clinics that will perform abortions. This creates particular hardship and dangers for rural women and abused women, who must arrange transportation, and time off work and away from home -- overnight, sometimes a couple of days -- to have a legal procedure that should be a private matter.

The legislatures of many states attempt to pass laws and nowadays do pass laws that effectively outlaw abortion at any stage and for any reason.

For decades a widely-dispersed domestic terror network has concentrated on forcing clinic closures by harassing clients as they attempt to enter; by vandalizing and destroying clinics; by stalking and threatening the children of clinic workers; by threatening and sometimes murdering clinic doctors and workers.

Planned Parenthood is a favorite target. PP's mission is to help women and men decide when and if they want to have babies, to educate, to provide contraceptive services to both women and men, to provide prenatal services and even fertility services.

Only about 3% of PP's services involve abortion, and almost all of that is at an extremely early stage.

You really need to educate yourself. I'm not picking on you -- unfortunately I have recently noticed
an uptick in new DUers who express opinions very like yours, and I realize that misinformation cuts both ways. Trump repeats vicious lies -- and women's healthcare is is grave peril because these lies have been abroad for over 20 years already. It's not enough to dismiss them -- we have to fight them.
