Anti-abortion activists gear up for a fight

MCCL is back (not that they ever left), getting ready to fight Doe vs. Gomez, which requires the state to pay for abortions for low-income women as long as they provide other pre-natal services. Emboldened by complete abortion bans in South Dakota and now perhaps Mississippi, they are champing at the bit.

Republicans may want to think about this for a bit. If Roe vs. Wade is overturned, it will be for Republicans what the Civil Rights Act was for Democrats: a watershed event that will drive a huge chunk of the electorate from the party. Do Republicans really want that?
