They. Don’t. Care. In the military, there is a phrase called acceptable loss. What it means is a certain number of deaths is expected — accepted, even, to achieve a goal. That’s what the women who died of back alley abortions are. Acceptable loss to achieve a goal.

The people pushing abortion bans don’t care about the women. Hell, they don’t even care about the babies. Once they are born, those people are nowhere to be seen. They’re not ensuring the babies are cared for, or have food or housing or healthcare. They don’t care.

They only care about exerting their power over women.
