    as well as the ones making broad brush assumptions about the South are exactly the kind of hateful framing Republicans use. "Just leave" is essentially the same as "Just get a better job" or "Just borrow money from your family" a la Romney. It's really disappointing to see it applied here.

    It's more difficult than you might know to "just leave" a state, a home, your family, your job, a bad situation, and relocate your children along with you because we know the vast majority of women seeking abortions already have children.

    Urban feminists can't hope to succeed when part of their philosophy includes: abandon rural women who are unwilling or unable to leave areas that advocate state sanctions reproductive coercion.

    You said the air was singing / it's calling you, you don't believe / These things you've never seen / Never heard, never dreamed.
