In most states which have banned abortions, criminal penalties currently apply only to abortion providers, and not women who get an abortion. aidaccess.org can aid women in obtaining abortion pills by mail. Foreign doctors prescribe the pills, and foreign pharmacies fill the prescriptions and mail them to the patient. The pills are safe and effective; please spread the word so that women know they have options other than traveling hundreds of miles out of state to obtain an abortion.

Exempting women from criminal penalties was purely a PR move. Now that the anti-abortionists have the highest church of the land on their side, they will not hesitate to write news laws targeting women who fail to fulfill their role as handmaid.

Interesting that offshore ships can be used as abortion hospitals perfectly legally if out of the maritime borders
I'm letting this simmer in ye ole synapsis a bit more before I make my official pompous pontificating statements.
However, it is accurate to say that at most times I am fully behind women's rights regarding this subject and very happy for all those who have an optimistic outlook. I specifically hope that their outlook is supported by facts and plans. Treachery is afoot with the repuglicans maybe more so since CIA Bush and Bush the stupid arrived at the presidency.
As is I have to manage my propensity for philosophically jingoistic declarations. BTW I spent some time today researching the word jingoistic. It derives from an (extremely) British patriotic song and the lyric "By Jingo". "By Jingo" further unravels to mean "By Jesus". Being somewhat an antichrist figure to the religious zealots, I am a heathen savage and heretic, it may be contradictory for me to embrace the word. When I come around people sitting in their cars, they lock the doors and firmly clutch their purses By Jingo hee hee.
Frankly, if I were not given to some episodes of diplomacy, I might encourage that we rip these fukers heads off and shit down their necks! But I will refrain from any serious encouragement of those behaviors.
Many pundits I happen upon suggest increasing the number of supreme court judges as a remedy. That might be nice if we could get some wise and qualified dem judges past the lunatic, insurrectionist, fascist, and imbecilic Rethuglicans. BUT dear ole Prez Joe states, almost absolutely, he's not going to do this. I am wondering why Joe B is opposed to this when so many say it is THE solution?
