It's unfortunte that the government is so wrapped up in the Trump scandle. There is something bigger happening and an opportunity to fix a problem that has been festering in this country since the 70's, sme thing that is coming to a head... abortion.
On one hand we have states making having an abortion at all illegal, in others we see a push for infanticide. There is a position between those two poles that has become more an more unacceptable fro both sides. It's a reasonable position, one supported by over 70% of Americans and the current president...then there is the 'no abortion ever' crowd and the 'abortion at any point even after birth' crowd (a recent development that I think is the real reason for the recent conservative kick-back.
What we need, really need, is for Congress to pass a reasonable Abortion bill, one Trump would not have a problem signing (he's pro-abortion), I can see a bill allowing for easy access to abortifacients and morning after pills, one that allowed unrestricted access during the first trimester, and access to abortion for those in the second or third trimester for any case of a risk of harm to the mother or genetic problems (discovered through amniotic tests), or for any case of incest or pregnancy of a raped minor up until the end of pregnancy. In the case the child is born, it no longer falls under the ability of the mother to make a choice (similar to girls that get procecuted for having a child in the prom bathroom and get proecuted).
If Congress quantified and passed this basic set of laws, most (sure, not all) of the kickback would be negated... sure 'my body my choice' goups would be pissed, and the 'abortion is murder' crowd would be pissed... but frankly, I dont cae about either of those groups.
Personal bits I would like to see in this bill? Subsidized sterilizartion for both sexes and a forfeture of fraternal responsability (in the same time frame, given due notice as a woman would get). Sterilization is a big step, but for those that don't want to be parents (or don't want any more... like me!) sterilization saves alot of money and stress. Forfature of fraternal rights gives men the same rights as females... to not be a parent. Every single argument that can be made to justify abortion supports this position. After that, the woman can still choose whether to raise the kid alone without child support, give it up for adoptioin or drop it off at a safe drop place as she chooses. Men should have reproductive freedom, just like women, that isn't dependent on celibacy.
Bottom line, Congress has been derilict in their duty to pass actual laws that would back up one of the most significnt SJC ruling since the Dred Scott case (which led us into the Civil War). The Democrats have had multiple opportunities with both houses and the presidency... and none of them bothered and here we are.
