Just like the north had to be sanctuary states during the slave days, now we're going to be sanctuary states for abortion again.

This is a dangerous path the GOP is putting our country on.

Hopefully the GOP chokes on this at the polls for the next few decades

I don’t want to make an already shitty situation even more dramatic, but McConnell has mentioned the prospect of a nationwide abortion ban. Our “safe haven” status isn’t all that safe.
