23. I know what they think, I just don't think
they have two brain cells to rub together. Collectively.

This is a tide that will be hard to turn, both because of the increasing number of bat-shit crazy anti-women types and because of an increasing number of young women who simply cannot comprehend anything beyond their tiny bubble of reality.

I teach college and it is appalling to hear young women say that they want five or six babies and think that all abortion is murder. They don't know what Roe is; they lack the basic knowledge (and perhaps intelligence) to grasp the danger of a reversal. They can look at a picture of a woman dead on the floor after a back-street abortion and not bat an eyelash - probably because they have become so inured to images of violence that a grainy b&w crime scene photo is hardly a blip on their radar.

Then they'll say - "I just don't understand how she could kill her baby!"

If I sound blase, it is because I despair.
