The Republican platform, both Presidential and Congressional, has focused on women's reproductive choices to the exclusion of almost everything else in the last 4 years. Could this be because they have no jobs policies, and every policy they do have will positively affect only the wealthy? It's never failed to baffle me, that the folks who claim to be so 'pro-life' when it comes to taking away a woman's right to a safe, legal abortion, are almost unanimously in favor of the death penalty, and, when the threat of abridgement to their right to bear arms is mentioned, are ready to go to war to protect that.

The damn-the-patient harpy running the abortuary has a lengthy record of health violations, but she's living lavishly on the profits of death.
Mississippi Abortionist Is a Great Decorator, but Not So Good With Patient Safety
"... The Daily Beast ran an interview to introduce their readers to the woman who runs the clinic, Diane Derzis. We are told that she likes thrillers, has a smoker’s laugh, and is apparently a fabulous decorator. Her numerous patient safety violations? No mention.
"Friends and colleagues describe the 58-year-old as “well put-together,” funny, savvy, and tough. She loves yard sales, thrillers take her mind off tough days, and in the ’80s she returned to school for a law degree after years of operating clinics.
… Derzis bought the Jackson clinic from friend and colleague Susan Hill in 2010, after Hill died of breast cancer, and practically the first thing she did was redecorate—she painted the walls bright purples and yellows, and added red leather furniture to create a “happy, warm feeling”—a stark contrast with her own abortion experience three decades before.
"The article also mentions Derzis’ lavish home, complete with jacuzzi and skyline views, recently featured in a Birmingham newspaper. Hey, abortion pays. The sad thing is that Derzis has a history of flouting patient safety standards, yet here she is being glorified.
Derzis also owned an abortion clinic in Birmingham, Alabama.“Owned” is in past tense, because that clinic was forcibly closed, and allowed to reopen only on the condition that Derzis couldn’t be involved in running it anymore.(The clinic is currently still closed.) The state of Alabama investigated the clinic after three patients were hospitalized, one in intensive care, on the same day and found 76 pages’ worth of health code violations: http://abortiondocs.org/wp-content/uploads/20...
But hey, she can decorate well."

Do we live in a Capitalist society, or don't we? This woman embodies both the modern day feminist, and the golden years Capitalist - a win-win for women everywhere.
Charles Lindbergh was an anti-semite, who enjoyed the adulation of the world about 13 years before Hitler discovered he was Jewish.
Timing is everything.
