Dawn, you've hit the nail on the head . What hypocrites! To think that we would believe that they are against abortion just because they are trying to shut down abortion clinics. I hadn't realized that their nefarious scheme is to increase the number of abortions by reducing the availability of contraceptives! How could I have been so easily fooled?
Jack, I'm afraid you'll need to revise your theory that Republican leaders surreptitiously want to preserve Roe so that they can maintain a coalition that will dissolve if Roe is overturned. In light of Dawn's argument, you will need to claim that Republican leaders pretend they want to overturn Roe, on behalf of a constituency that pretends that it wants to reduce the number of abortions. Politics can be so confusing!
