How long do they think we will keep swallowing this bullshit about how they want to “reduce abortions” when they keep making it harder and harder for women to get contraception or even information about family planning?

Acting Commissioner: Can’t or won’t? You’ll do it and like it or you’ll be doing research on the absorption rate of light beers in chimpanzees.
The Researcher: Oh, please, anything but another light beer study.
It can be no coincidence that this decision will be “less filling” than it ought to be.
