No, women’s personal, complex decisions about abortion are actually NOT like buying a car or carpeting.
It’s not complicated. If you don’t understand women’s health, don’t try to regulate it.
The Missouri legislature is pushing through yet another extreme, dangerous, completely non-medical bill to cut off women’s access to safe and legal abortion—and shame and hurt women who seek it out. Let’s be clear: This is about politics, not about women’s health.
