  1. powerful reporting – deeply upsetting to learn how fast these changes are coming into effect. Glad to see MA is stepping up, but very concerned about living in a world where the state you live in determines your access to basic human rights.

  2. Actually, the only reason to get birth control is to in is in anticipation of needing a future abortion or to care for an unplanned pregnancy. I don’t like the threat of fewer rights leading women to use long acting birth control, but, maybe all women and men should be taking in much more active role in preventing pregnancy. The need for abortion is largely driven by irresponsibility.

  3. The life of the infant and his/her human rights are not even considered in your article.
    Over 50% of abortions are for women who have had at least one abortion procedure.
    The dignity of a human life is not decided by the circumstances of conception.
