Yep. Wait in the bushes until it all dies down, and then spring the legislation. These people will never, ever give up. Via Yahoo News:

Anti-abortion activists cautioned Republican lawmakers in Tennessee against immediately campaigning to roll back access to in vitro fertilization and contraception, according to a conference call recording obtained by ProPublica.

Those types of attacks on reproductive freedoms should wait another year or two, an activist said on the Oct. 27 call, which ProPublica published on Tuesday.

The report illustrates how anti-abortion organizations are strategizing to put even more restrictions on reproductive health care in the wake of the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade.

“Maybe your caucus gets to a point next year or two years from now, three years from now, where you do want to talk about IVF and how to regulate it in a more ethical way, or deal with some of the contraceptive issues. But I don’t think that’s the conversation that you need to have now,” Stephen Billy, vice president of state affairs for Susan B. Anthony Pro-Live America, says in the recording.

Go read the entire ProPublica piece. It's scary, how indifferent they are to the fate of women and the health of their children.
