Must confess, never thought about that angle.
However, it will be a boon for tourism in the RotW.
All those lovely vacationers travelling to a country with legal abortion. :-)
All that profit for the airlines.
Pretty sure that the airline lobbyists will pressurise the numpties in power to NOT interfere in curtailing those profits.
Edit:

As for banning contraceptives, well...
Market to reach $20.5 billion by 2026
Any ban surely has to impact some American companies to a fairly large degree. How many American pension funds hold shares in contraceptive companies?


Oops, pro-corporate Amy forgot this! Citizens United! Corporations are people, too, my friend. Check out the statement from the CEOs of Dick's Sporting Goods.

I personally think that men have little or no right to take a stand against abortion rights. It is the one issue that could ruin a candidates chances of winning an election. All women should have the right to choose that path. They should also take better precautions to prevent pregnancy in the first place. I also would never council a woman to have an abortion, But as long as there are orphanages that are crammed full and there are babies dying from starvation banning abortion is absurd. Fortunately for those who feel the need to get one, many states will never make abortion illegal again as well as most civilized nations around the world.


+1 but ... .

If the midterms do the GOP way, as someone else mentioned, there will quite likely be a bill to ban nationally. Though Biden would veto, nothing stops another attempt at a time when the GOP has both branches. Unless the 3rd, judicial branch, has become less extreme by that time.

I Remember When Our Ship Visited SUBIC Bay in da Philippines. We All Know what Goes On there Between a Navy Man
and a Local Woman.

First Time I 'Visited' a Local Lady at Her Home - She Took a Baby off her Bed and Laid it Off to the Side. I don't know if it was Hers.
We Then Proceeded to get a GOoD Nights 'Sleep'.

This Was About 50 Years Ago. I Doubt if I Ever Paid Much Attention to Whether there Were ABORTIONISTs There or in US of A.
I Don't Remember. I'm Sure I Knew ZIP 'bout this Fact of Life.

ABORTION is GROTESQUE. But, if a Woman Wants an ABORTION She Should be Able to Get One.

Late Term ABORTIONs Makes Me ILL. Again, if there are People who Want Them and Will Perform Them - Do It.

There is SO MUCH DEATH in da World. It is Emotionally So Hard to Make It Thru a Day Happy Because of It.

Sorry, I Believe ABORTION is Murder. Not Sure 'bout Early Stages of Fetal Life. It is a HORRIBLE Killing no matter when.

I Wish Both Man and Woman would Try Very Hard to Prevent Such an Event as An ABORTION.

Before Going to Philippines as a Navy Man - My First 'Encounter' with a Woman was in Long Beach California. At 25 she Already had a 5 and 7 Year Old and Unmarried I Supposed. I Did Not Ask and Don't think she said. She did say She was 'Protected' or some such. Used a Coil, I Believe she said. All New to Me. Anyways, She Never said to Me - 'I'm Pregnant'. Maybe she said so to Some Other Navy Man with a Higher Rate. Dat was sort of Nasty to say. But, da Higher in Rank da
mo money, ya all.

SUPERWhatever

May we All have a METAMORPHOSIS. REASON. GOoD JUDGEMENT and LOVE and ORDER!!!!!

Even I don't agree they should be simply on-demand. However, as would be expected they are very rare and most doctors won't do them without a very good reason (ie life-threatening complications to the woman or fetus). Of course by then she has been aware of the pregnancy for several months so would (should!) have terminated it much sooner before there was any brain development, which is the only scientifically verifiable criterion we have to determine it's become a human rather than a small lump of tissue. Someone needs to tell these "heartbeat" politicos that human heart cells can be generated from stem cells and kept beating all on their own in a petri dish with the right medium.

The grotesque late-term poster-sized pictures that abortion opponents flash on street corners these days for shock value don't have any context. Were they done to save the woman's life? Was the fetus dead already anyways? They don't say and frankly I wouldn't believe them if they did for obvious reasons.

As per the CDC "and even fewer (<1.0%) were performed at 21 weeks’ gestation". Less than 1% at 21, and third trimester doesn't start until 27.

In the UK it is not possible to have an abortion beyond 23 weeks and 6 days (unless there are specific medical exceptions). The majority of abortions are not surgical, but medical; and the majority of abortions are in the first ten weeks.
The above stats, and a load more information can be found at:

'Right to CONTROL Our Own Bodies'. Hear dat a Lot.

Is This CONTROL - The CONTROL Used when Having UNPROTECTED Sex Resulting in a Pregnancy and Leads to ABORTION or NOT?

Ones So DESIOROUS of 'CONTROL' are Now SCREAMING and RAGING in da Streets of US of A.

CONTROLING the Breaking of GLASS; BURNING of Many Things; WANTON HAVOC EveryWhere. Other Peoples RIGHTs and PROPERTIEs
BE DAMNED.

Being OUT - OF - CONTROL Seems to Be MOST IMPORTANT.

Yet, These INCREDIBLE ABILITIEs to RAGE - to Make DECISION to 'PROTEST' - These WONDERFUL CHOICEs - Seem to DISAPPEAR
During PENILE IMPLANT THERAPY which Results in a PREGNANCY.

It's a HuWoMan Thang.

SUPERYep

Thanks, Gary, I didn't see anything about destruction of property but there were a few incidents of troublemakers (as always.) They make the rest of the protestors look bad (perhaps not an accident?)

Looking like the Camels are definitely on the Horizon.
The war on terror seems to have failed.
The aims of Al Qaeda, Taliban, Boko Haram ISS & other mad mullahs is the keep the world repressed in their dark ages.
They all have the same aim - Destroy "The Great Satan".
Well, no need to use bombs, bullets or aircraft as all they have to do is to sit back & wait patiently.
And it puts the United States at odds with the rest of the developed world, he said. "Look at Ireland. It is hard to believe that America is taking a backseat, is backsliding, when the rest of the world is moving to give women the kinds of rights they should have had a long time ago."
The Regression of the U.S. has commenced

I wonder which one a 10-year-old girl's rape baby would be...

Happily we won't get to find out because she was able to go to a neighbouring state. Unfortunately hers has a limit of six weeks, and she was at six weeks and three days. but rules are rules doncha know becuz freedumb, or something.

Soon all those neighbouring states will ban it, so we'll get to find out how the next ten-year-old's rape baby turns out. I wonder if the mother will survive?
