These are abortion rates *contingent on pregnancy* — in aggregate half of abortions involve women living below the poverty line who have many more unintended pregnancies due to less access to and use of reliable contraceptives. (Range restriction fallacies pop up everywhere)
Single women who earn $47,000+ a year abort 32 percent of their babies. Single women making $11,670 a year or less abort 8.6 percent of their babies. This is not about desperation and poverty. It’s time to get real about that. https://t.co/40jofdS8dM

The great insight of Tucker’s career was later realizing that he was totally wrong about this, and that you can in fact be a transparently phony but wildly successful populist as long as you have no shame about feeding and triggering your audience’s basest grievances.
Tucker Carlson on @BookTV 9/14/2003: "Bill O'Reilly's really talented. He's more talented than I am...But I think there's a deep phoniness at the center of his shtick...built on perception that he is the character he plays...The moment that it's revealed not to be true it's over" https://t.co/SdJksU1Nol

That would not be a moderate opinion. It would severely curtail a constitutional right that has been guaranteed for fifty years. https://t.co/zh7c12CvaL
NEW —- Chief Justice Roberts appears to lose the reins. He sought to write moderate opinion upholding 15 week abortion ban, source says, but ultra conservative wing told him they had votes to overturn Roe. @scotusreporter, me +@amarimow https://t.co/i28DEUBoIY

So, this is the *fourth* [known] leak: 1. WSJ ed board (vote count, opinion assignment, Roberts' efforts to moderate), Apr 26 2. Politico (Feb 10 draft opinion), May 2 3. Politico (vote count in Dec/early May), May 2 4. Post (vote count in Dec/early May, Roberts' view), May 7
This is also another, heretofore rare Supreme Court leak, and it’s notable that this time not only are conservatives leaking, they’re allowing reporters to say they’re the ones leaking. https://t.co/plmiXdNCw0
I'm sorry but this is the high-conscientious handwriting of a conservative false flag. If the left could be disciplined enough to write this neatly we wouldn't have all these problems.
BREAKING: Somebody vandalized and allegedly threw Molotov cocktails into Wisconsin Family Action’s — an anti-abortion rights group — Madison office, writing w/ graffiti, “If abortions aren’t safe, then you aren’t either.” Story TK https://t.co/6Wfnyeh9hQ
