    The attack group used to be "Army of God" which was a collection of middle-aged fundy Protestants.  Granite City is on the Illinois-Missouri border, thus attracting patients from the bible belt as well as conservative downstate Illinois.  

    Illinois tried to pass similar TRAP laws in the late 1980's with both Democrats and Republicans supprting political restrictions on abortion.  Catholics had been thumbing their noses at the hierarchy's reproductive dogma for decades, so the more noise the hierarchy made on abortion, the worst it was for Democratic politicians.  

    Governor Bryant really means "abortion in a medical setting"-free, as abortion will still happen with pharmaceutical help.  Mississippi is close enough to Mexico where drugs can be obtained without a prescription.  Cytotec will simply be added to the list of black market drugs available and give Mississippi law enforcement something else to chase (or take a payoff for).

    Don't look back, something may be gaining on you. - L. "Satchel" Paige
