Looking around the malls, high schools, middle schools, and parks, i'd say teenagers have no clue what abortion even is. There are far too many little girls showing off their babies from multiple gang member daddies all around this area. It appears to be a generation gig. What ever happened to handing down "family values"? Now it's "this is how to have a baby before you're 15".

How come the anti-abortion cultists haven't been trumpeting the new Reich-wing definition of rape the Repugs are trying to pass in the House.
The House law, also known as H.R. 3, is designed to make permanent some existing bans on federal funding for abortion, like the Hyde Amendment, which prevents Medicaid from covering abortion except in the cases of rape or incest or for the life or health of the mother.
The bill also prohibits employers and the self-insured from using widely-available tax breaks for buying private health insurance, if that insurance also covers abortion.
But the widest criticism of the bill comes in its exemptions for rape -- provisions that would allow federal money or private insurance to be used to cover an abortion.
H.R. 3 says those provisions would kick in only in cases of FORCIBLE rape! For example: IF A 13-YEAR-OLD GIRL IS IMPREGNATED BY A 24-YEAR-OLD ADULT, SHE WOULD NO LONGER QUALIFY TO HAVE MEDICAID PAY FOR AN ABORTION.
The bill would also limit the incest exemption to women under the age of 18 -- meaning a victim of incest who was legally allowed to vote wouldn't have her abortion covered by Medicaid and would likely have more limited access to private insurance than she does today.
HOUSE REPUBLICAN PRIORITIES: JOBS? NOPE, REDEFINING RAPE SO POOR PEOPLE CAN'T GET ABORTIONS
