My closet is full of clothes. I hate throwing stuff away. I have clothes in various sizes in my closet. I have new clothes and old clothes. However unlike Joan Crawford, I do indeed have wire hangers in my closet. But despite despite having a couple of minidresses that are pre Roe v Wade, I agree with Joan Crawford " No more wire hangers". Wire hangers are cheap and easy to get. Let's not have them substitute for access to safe and affordable abortions.
If the crazy, but wily, Republican right gets their way, access for perhaps 90% or more of all women, will end with the passage of the trio of these three bill....The Pence bill which cuts off funding for Planned Parenthood's women's wellness programs from birth control to pap smears, the Smith bill which codifies Hyde, eliminate abortion coverage in private and employer insurance and the Pitts bill, aka the "Let Women Die" bill which eliminates it in under the new health care act. Both Smith and Pitts have hidden land mines, well, actually, they are hiding in plain sight. It's why they won't eliminate the Let Women Die provision. Because that gives them the right to have private parties go to court to get an injunction, from a friendly anti choice judge, to stop federal funds to health care entities that provide abortion. Essentially it gives anti choice zealots an veto over abortion. More on that in my next post.
