This is going to force teenage girls...

…who become pregnant, to be quite about it. They can’t even tell their friends, because that would be how the word would get out to the parents that like this law. They will need to tell their parents as soon as they know and shut up about it.

“I thought you were pregnant? But you aren’t now that you and your family went on vacation to California”?

And as soon as an “activist” gets wind, the lawsuits will be flying.

And that is only for those that can afford the trip.

Women will have to order pregnancy tests online, so as not to allow anyone to see they are testing for pregnancy by buying it in person at the store, as that would draw suspicion.

The insanity is going to run wild.

I wonder if they will set up “watchers” for the closest abortion clinics across state lines.

Criminal organizations will set up shops taking advantage of women in need with no where to go but to them. History shows this will increase abortion numbers, and more will suffer from botched unregulated procedures done. The wealthy will have their Dr's still that'll do them but will overcharge them, and list it as something else, again like some did before. The backlash against republican politicians will be huge when the mid terms get here. What next, ban birth control, or bans on women voting? Its coming.

I hope. I don’t know of a mother who wouldn’t agree to put their daughter on birth control even more so teenage pregnancies don’t have the stigma they once had. I’m not saying it makes the Texas law on ab right or good I’m just desperately trying to see a positive

That way they can then monitor each pregnant child or adult to make sure they keep the child.

(China monitors for the opposite, to make sure the child is not carried to term. Though China is easing up on this as it was not sustainable in the long run as it was too draconian. It still is doing it however with the Uyghurs.)
