    All the folks saying all they cared about were Trump's Supreme Court nominees. Now is their chance to shine. It's what they sold their soul for.

    Seven states (including Alabama, of course) also enforce parental rights for rapists and force women to share custody with their rapists. That's just twisted and sick.

    They won't act before the 2020 election on an issue like this. They don't want to potentially cost Trump his second term.

    Ironic part of all this is many of these so called Republican anti abortionists have no problem asking their mistress to get one. They think of themselves as the pillars of moral fiber in this country.

    Pot used to be a Federal law... now it seems that Colorado and California among other states have all told the feds to take a hike... I wonder how the Fed takes this issue back from the states.

    The Republican Party is writing it’s own epitaph.

    I remember that a couple of years ago that more people nationally supported Right To Life more than abortion. Now, I have to admit that I still do NOT believe polls, so there's that to consider... It could just be fake news for all I know. But I do know that late term abortion is not very popular.

    They'll have to convince women that marijuana causes pro-life thinking.

    Although the poll was taken almost a year old it's the most recent poll I could find specifically regarding support for Roe v. Wade. If the Supreme Court does overturn Roe it's not going to be good for the Republicans.
    NBC/WSJ poll: Support for Roe v. Wade hits new high

    It’s still federal law. The DOJ could come down on Colorado et al. any time they want.

    Somehow, it has to be because of Alabama football. If abortion helped the Tide, Alabama would have China's old one child law. So maybe it's to prevent any holes in their 200-deep roster 18 years down the road.

    Pretty sure that the majority support right to choose. Most if not all polls show that, as VA linked. About 20% of people want it overturned. Mostly old men with abortions in their past I suppose.

    Then I guess they can do the same in Alabama too if they sign that bill into law.

    What if some sick person posted pics or videos of an abortion? Do you think the people would be that much for it?

    One more thing, I still do NOT trust polls.

    Alabama abortion ban passes overwhelmingly with no changes

    From the above link. Interesting but not surprised CBS chose to leave some of this out of their article.

    .......................

    The bill passed exactly as it was introduced by Rep. Terri Collins, R-Decatur, about six weeks ago. It includes only one exception -- to allow abortions in cases of a serious health risk to the woman. The goal is to trigger a legal challenge to Roe v. Wade.

    ...............

    Collins said her goal was to pass the bill in a form she thought would serve as the strongest challenge to Roe v. Wade. She said states could later decide what exceptions to allow if the U.S. Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade. She said she would support a rape and incest exception if that happens.

    “I’ve answered many emails from people who have poured out their hearts with real stories that were true,” Collins said. “My goal with this bill is not to hurt them in any way. My goal with this bill, and I think all of our goal, is to have Roe vs. Wade turned over, and that decision be sent back to the states so that we can come up with our laws that address and include amendments and things that address those issues."

    Well that's the thing, all these ghouls know that they can still get one if they want it, its really only going to affect people of little means.
