I truly despair of the human race when I see people of all political beliefs reacting like trained poodles to the ridiculous dud known as Texas abortion ban. This is a distraction tactic, folks. You are being had. That ban has no enforcement mechanism. A private individual can sue a provider if they can prove there was a pregnancy, that it didn’t end in miscarriage, that the provider actually provided something that the woman actually took, and that it actually had an abortive effect. The only person who has a chance of suing here is the actual woman who aborted, and even then, any civil attorney with two days of working experience can defend this case.
There are no criminal penalties for anybody and none of any kind to the aborting woman. A woman can get her scrip and the two pills mailed to her from anywhere on the planet. Just like everybody who wanted an abortion did during the pandemic. Cancer patients couldn’t get treatment. But nobody failed to get abortions if they wanted. You know why? Telemedicine.
There was a long-term decline in the number of abortions in the US that was interrupted in 2017 and reversed in 2018. Every study under the sun attributed this to telemedicine. And what happened to telemedicine in 2020? Exactly. So let’s stop being mega-dupes and start paying attention to things that do matter.
