One of the most striking things about abortion rights in America to me is the lack of infrastructure -- facts on the ground -- that would give some material backing, and establish cultural "precedent" to the arguments supporting Roe.
What do I mean? Well, as "of 2000, 87 percent of U.S. counties have no known abortion provider; these counties are home to 34 percent of all women of reproductive age," according to Planned Parenthood. It's my humble supposition that this number has not increased since George Bush has taken office.
