9 Weapons That Failed Spectacularly (and 1 That Possibly Didn’t).

A lot of people are too young to remember what abortion was like before Roe vs. Wade. "We didn't have the $250 it would cost to pay a bonafide illegal abortionist so the only option was amateur hour."

Thanks for the abortion article. I never had one, but I had friends who went through that horror. There is no way to end abortion, so the alternatives are to make it illegal and put women through hell, often either killing them or making them sterile, or keep it legal. Where has this war on women come from? How could any woman vote for them? How could any man who loves a woman, be it wife, mother, sister, lover, vote for one of them?
