    Gawd!, celebrating this as a great achievement is really counterproductive and inane.

    We talk about a law that enables the use of public funds to terminate the lives of the unborn. The country already had an abortion law for specific cases including rape.

    Hard core progressives sell their support at a high price (they finally got the abortion bill they were pushing for)

    Sow the wind, reap the whirlwind, the noisy progressive minority will keep demanding more concessions from this apathetic & weak government in exchange for their support.

    The thing won't end well for the argies.

    This is a non-event except for meddlesome males who think they need to control everything including women's bodies.

    Indeed if only abortion had been available for longer, then perhaps we wouldn't annoying people like Hans trying to dictate how people can 'correctly' live.
