Anti-choice Mississippi lawmaker: Sure, women may turn to coathanger abortions “but hey…”

You almost gotta respect how anti-choicers in Mississippi are totally upfront about their goals. I wrote recently at Mother Jones about the new law that’s basically custom-designed to shut down the state’s only abortion clinic.

And now here’s State Rep. Bubba Carpenter bragging about how they’ve found a way to “literally” stop legal abortion in Mississippi without messing with Roe v. Wade. And what do you think about the “poor, pitiful women” who are forced to turn to coathanger abortions, Bubba? “But hey, you have to have moral values.”
