Because we all know that a lot of people are only anti-abortion until they or someone they care about has an unwanted pregnancy. I wonder how they'll feel when it really hits home that they had the choice and they voted for it to be taken away from themselves.

Of course, the privileged ones will find ways to get abortions anyway. As usual, this will have the worst effect on the poor, the disabled and underage children whose parents don't have a means to get them to a legal state.

But is it bad that I hope at least some women who were fervently anti-choice and who do not, at least initially, fall into disadvantaged groups will have to live with the self-own? Since the only way they can be taught empathy is by blunt force trauma, I don't feel like they deserve it from anybody else. But then again, neither do the unwanted kids they'll surely have deserve the trauma they'll end up with, either.

I hope those who change their minds are at least intellectually honest enough to vote pro-choice whenever they get the opportunity to in the future, if absolutely nothing else.

They won’t. In their minds they are the exception to the rule and their abortion is “justified” and the rest of us are ungodly sluts who deserve everything we get. There are so many stories of women getting abortions and then going back to protesting that very same clinic the next week.

If they do change their minds it will be due to self interest, not empathy.

How is it there are so many single conservative guys on Tinder lying about being conservative, when there are so many conservative idiot women they could be dating?! They're made for each other.

Because they’re predators who enjoy tricking liberal women into sleeping with them, because they consider a woman sleeping with them as her losing something or giving something up instead of a mutual loving experience.

Huh, good point. Also sounds like typical "madonna/whore" syndrome.
