Limits abortion as UN declares access to abortion a human right

5/22 http://www.rollingstone.com/politics/features/trumps-abortion-policy-isnt-about-morality-its-coercion-w483259: “This expanded gag rule is an economic attack aimed at preventing the poorest women in the world from obtaining or even learning about safe abortion services, which will inevitably result in increased mortality from unsafe abortion as well as collateral damage to poor people in need of other life-saving health services. It is a significant escalation in the broader campaign by U.S. abortion opponents to use economic coercion to stop women from obtaining safe abortions at home and abroad – a strategy abortion opponents have embraced because, after losing the legal battle decades ago, they have utterly failed to convince women that ending a pregnancy is immoral.”

But on the State Senate floor Wednesday, two Republican lawmakers joked that women seeking abortions should go to the St. Louis Zoo because it’s “safer” and more regulated than abortion clinics.” https://www.yahoo.com/beauty/missouri-lawmakers-joke-women-want-135611051.html
