Description

Since the leak of the Supreme Court draft opinion on overturning the constitutional right to abortion, both sides of the fight have been scrambling.

Today, in the first of two parts, we speak to anti-abortion activists such as Michael Gonidakis, president of Ohio Right to Life, about what comes next.

“It’s been a whirlwind,” he said. “We’re in uncharted territory.”

it's pretty clear there are no individuals interviewed who would be most impacted by the change in law the most. Poor reporting Daily.

The crazy sentence out of that 64 year old's mouth! wow. what a pig is: how bad things happen to good people. "It's about what we do with those women who cross state lines to get an abortion." What a foul creep. Hey, at least he admitted what he's really thinking. May he live very uncomfortably with his Orwellian viciousness. The vileness in his heart: he knows what he's saying. He smiled like a Cheshire cat: well try to help them. Repugnant in the extreme. And he signals his intentions in such a lovely, sweet way. Makes me I want him to my 4 year old's bday. Yet then again, sad about what he'd do to that 4 year old.
