Signed. I don't get people who want these bans. So basically they are saying if a woman wants an abortion but is too poor to afford one, she must be able to afford the kid and/or give it up for adoption, OR she'll take matter into her own hands which could potentially result in the death of both the fetus ,( "baby") who they value more than the mother, and the mother.

I"m all for reducing the number of abortions. I think everyone is. But I am not for reducing a woman's choices. We have no idea what any individual's circumstances are.

If men have rights to get insurance coverage for Viagra and penile prosthesis/penile implant- which help men to have sex and impregnate women- then women have rights to get an abortion coverage.

I rather doubt that Obama can override the Hyde amendment. The conservatives managed to get Planned Parenthood defunded using the Hyde amendment even though no federal funds were used. But I am in favour of such a move.
