Legal abortions. Half the US outlaws abortions and the total number goes up.
I have so many thoughts but not nearly enough time to write them up now. The most concise summary is: (1) the Evangelical movement conflated itself with conservatism, (2) abortion became a wedge issue, not a moral issue, for Republicans, (3) it was pursued in an politically strategic way but never a bona fide pro life strategic way, (4) policies that drive abortions down were ignored or fought against if they didn’t support conservative politics, (5) this isn’t a surprising outcome. Sad, not surprising.
