  •  Re what splashy correctly says, Rachel made a (4+ / 0-)

    point tonight. Her point was that what Roe did not do is make abortions happen and what it did do was make them safe.  She quoted figures that showed that before Roe, death from the complications of abortion was among the top if not the top cause of deaths among women of childbearing age, and that in the age of Roe, that ain't in the top hundred causes of death.

    And there is no occasion as to which any US male gets this kind of massive big gummint minute regulation of any medical proceure at all. Just as Rs and conservatives do not care about the life of any born child they also do not care about the survival of any pregnant woman at all. If we want to talk about equality, then Rachel's stats are issue no. 1.
