What a Romney Victory Would Mean
With Election Day now upon us, it's worth weighing the impacts of a Mitt Romney win. Especially when it comes to reproductive rights and healthcare. Romney seems likely to cater to the extreme anti-choice faction of his party. Some possible scenarios could be: the Supreme Court gets more anti-choice, planned Parenthood loses federal funding, healthcare reform gets overturned, there's no more co-pay-free birth control, there are stricter limits on federal funding for abortions, the Global Gag Rule returns, parental consent laws are federalized, or hospitals are allowed to deny women access to abortion, even if their lives are in danger.
