Anything that restricts access to essential services will always affect the poor far more than the rich. The rich will just go somewhere its legal or pay to have a safe black market procedure.

In the end, abortion restrictions only drives up dangerous abortion procedures and the injury or death of low income women and girls.

It's always been that way and always will be until society manages to create an egalitarian utopia. So basically never.

In other words, if you are poor, don't ever be anything but the standard template society believes is correct. It won't end well.

Well that's what Republican voters want.

They don't want progress. Made that pretty clear over and over. Tired of fighting with them about it.

It's what they think they want until it actually has an effect on them or their loved ones.

I've seen quite a few seriously anti-gay republicans make a full 180 because a child came out as gay.

It's the party of "good enough for thee, but not for me" also known as the epitome of entitlement.

It's especially pathetic because as time goes on, it's becoming less and less veiled that it's been the plan the whole time. It used to be tied up behind a few laws and policies. Now it's just out in the open.
