someone should pass a 'Unborn Child Rights' bill. How many abortionists would get back in the womb and be subjected to their constituency? Shumer/Pelosi have been schooled at every turn. All Dems needed to do to get a majority including two Rs (but not pass) was produce a bill that effectively returned Roe v Wade, instead they went beyond that and lost even a simple majority - the lights are on but no one’s at home.

This may seem counter intuitive to the Christian Taliban but rather than seek to punish women why not offer incentives, why not provide free pre and post natal care, why not offer better tax breaks, better child allowance, better pre-school support, y'know things to help. Bloody Hell... literally.. So sad for women in the US. And for the babies their Senate and courts will force many to have against their will and despite the circumstances and their inability to care for them. This is Taliban-style theology. Forget democracy.
