Canadian Model of Abortion Rights

Before you guys and gals get all wound up, don't lose sight of what the US supreme court will be doing, kicking the legality of abortion back to the individual states to decide. Pretty much the same as the death penalty. Legal in some states and not in others.

As a side note, interesting how everyone always wants to look at Europe as to how things should be done. Take some time and check their abortion laws.

Oregon isn't shipping prisoners to Texas to be executed. Mississippi isn't requiring drug tests for vacationers returning from California (yet).
Point being that the states are not just making abortion illegal, they are also making it criminal to leave the state, to seek information about abortion or even to assist someone in getting information or leaving the state. State legislators are writing laws that will charge a woman with murder if she experiences an ectopic pregnancy or miscarries for any reason.

And while the current SCOTUS opinion is candy-coated with the Libertarian mantra of states' rights, make no mistake, what they are really aiming for is a federal ban, soon to be followed by a ban on all forms of birth control and sex education.

The Christian Nationalists who now infest the entire US government want to become The United States of Gilead.
