    I don't at all agree with this. There are lots of families in West Virginia that grew up in coal mining towns, who've owned their home for decades and now find themselves without work and with a home that's quite literally valueless. Or the poor family in Florida who's renting but absolutely can't just pick up stakes and move a few hundred miles to a place where they know no one and have no real leads on jobs.


    Red states aren't solely populated by fascists. More than 5 million Texans voted for Joe Biden in 2020. Are they all unworthy of concern?
    Not to mention it can cost up to several thousand to move, and for many a blue state would incur a cost of living increase. I imagine many that can logistcally afford the move are doing so.

    Adults can drive out, bus out, or if necessary walk out. Yeah, it would suck. But it sucks more to be a Jew in late 30s Germany. And nobody in a red state now is in a more tenuous position than all the black people who left the South during the Great Migration. Or the Third World refugees who come to the West.

    Come to the reality-based world, swell our ranks, build our House majority. Refugees leave totalitarian states. The red states are now Syria or North Korea. Get out if you want to live.

    This Idaho legislator sounds like some posters lol

    “We never looked that close, and what exactly that bill said and how it was written and language that was in it,” he said. “We did that thinking Roe v. Wade was never going to get overturned. And then when it got overturned, we said, ‘OK, now we have to take a really close look at the definitions.’”

    good luck having a baby in Idaho *******s

    article in nyt about docs fleeing and the quote above is regarding their trigger law that went into effect right after roe died

    What you can do, even when you have a stupid religion, when you don't have Ulster Scots weighing you down.

    Ohio nutjobs are also trying to tie parental rights and trans affirming care to abortion in November. If the RWNM wants to try something that doesn't work, I'm okay with that!

    Just one of many backdoor ways this country has devised to funnel public dollars to religious organizations.

    Texas is enacting checkpoints at the state line to prevent the trafficking of abortions out of state.

    Will the media pretend it didn't happen like the girl in Indiana?

    The the part I don't get is "having" the kid is less expensive than the abortion? They're incredibly expensive. But, I get it, you can't afford "right now" to get it. Good job Mississippi.
