While I'm on the subject catalyzed by the "Chinese Sewer Baby," -- Lest we in the United States be "smug" & think we're "better" than the "backward" Chinese, "think again." 
Once again ultra conservative (read, sexist, controlling, authoritarian religions) are behind it.  An ALL-MALE congressional panel has the audacity/gall to convene to decide one of women's most basic rights:  Reproductive FreedomWE are the backward country.  It's the nexus of Catholic & radical extreme Protestant fundamentalist religions who are trying to turn this country -- & women's rights -- which is really HUMAN Rights BACK to the days of coathanger (& now "sewer" abortions).  Rich women have Always had the right & the means to get an abortion if they chose.  They simply "hopped a plane" & went to Europe where it's been legal in many of those countries for a long time.
I, myself had an abortion in 1972--& was lucky it was legal in Washington, D. C. -- 3 mos. before Roe v. Wade became the law of the land--& still IS.  I was fortunate enough to have the procedure done at a clinic operated by Georgetown University & had the benefit of clean surroundings, understanding, sympathetic & compassionate staff--& the support of my then husband (who was a minister in the Seventh-Day Adventist Church at the time in Chattanooga, TN) accompany me.  I've never had any regrets for the life-changing decision I made.  It's EVERY woman's RIGHT to CHOOSE!

Daniel,Is it deja vu? Nope. It's real life and really terrifying. Today, a panel of only men in the House of Representatives is deciding whether to move forward a national ban on abortion after 20 weeks. All men. Zero women. Just like last year, when Republicans allowed zero women to testify on birth control.  It's unacceptable and we want to push back against this right now. Want to help? Share this image with everyone you know. Tell them that you will not stand for another all-male congressional committee deciding women's healthcare.
