47. I have read it and I do understand
Poor women didn't have federal abortion funding before and they won't have it now. Sucked for the past 30+ years and will suck now. But not a whit of difference.

Doesn't ban abortion.
Doesn't ban insurance coverage for abortion.
Maitains the status quo on federal funding for abortion.

But to hear some people on DU, you would think it was the end of the world, that abortion funding that exsited is going to disappear.

Totally untrue.
