The end of safe abortions.

When I was around 13 a relative, who was around my age died. When I asked how, everyone was secretive about how it happened.
I do remember it had something to do with loss of blood and a hanger. By the time I was 16, from news reporting, I understood what had happened.
She had a botched abortion.
What happened in Texas will not stop women from getting an abortion.
I wonder today how many, women in my life are here today, because they had a safe difficult choice?
Along with COVID-19 deniers, the country that wiped out polio, small pox, came up with cures for syphilis, treatment for tuberculosis an AIDS, now is going backwards to 19th century approaches to science and medicine.
Before long America will be back to wearing leeches to cure disease.
