Abortion Pills Stay Winning As Biotech Conquers Partisan Politics

A quick glance down a rabbit hole here in Wonderland . . .

It's always funny to watch pundits stir up panic and hatred over the "crisis" at the border without cluing viewers into the fact that BOTH SIDES understand that every "illegal" immigration influx is actually orchestrated by big biz and the ruling elite who operate BEYOND the reach of U.S. governmental control even they reside near some of the most affluent beach-side towns in the nation. 

Put simply . . .  

Illegal immigration isn't really illegal.

It's a rigged labor market move and the U.S. economy would quickly stall if it wasn't for the cheap & barely regulated labor it provides. 

In fact, we need more of it just to keep pace . . . Given that more and more Americans would rather try their luck selling handcrafted necklaces on Etsy than take abuse over cheeseburger orders. 

The U.S. birth rate is declining dramatically. Some say it's not even inflation and a shifting job market that's the cause. The rate of despair, panic and fear is keeping the middle-class from having as many babies at they would at any other point in human history. 

And here's the political angle . . .

More than anything else . . . Progressive politicos champion "reproductive freedom" over anything else. 

In a Republic ruled by Democratic elections . . . That's their right. But here's the rub: More reproductive freedom typically translates into more abortions in most modernized societies. 

One last fun fact . . .

Biotech advances have made abortions even easier and allow greater access backed up by federal laws that are unlikely to change and recently affirmed by a conservative-leaning Supreme Court. 

Example from recent reports: 

"Medication abortion is used in more than half of abortions in the U.S., outpacing surgical procedures for the first time in 2020."

To wit . . . 

The American middle-class is getting even more help killing itself.

That's the TKC take on it . . . We're eager to read what more thoughtful readers might have to say on this topic given that abortion debates over increasingly outdated technology will continue to dominate Kansas & Missouri politics. 

For now . . . Here's the backstory about a recent big pharma decision that will impact local households far more than so many clueless dudes will ever dare to realize . . .

The move could significantly expand access to abortion through medication.

The Department of Justice also paved the way for the US Postal Service to continue delivering prescription abortion medication.

In an opinion released on Tuesday, the department's office of legal counsel said the mailing of abortion pills does not violate an 1873 law, called the Comstock Act, that prohibits sending "obscene, lewd or lascivious" material through the mail.

"The Comstock Act does not require the Postal Service to change our current practice, which has been to consider packages containing mifepristone and misoprostol to be mailable under federal law in the same manner as other prescription drugs," the US Postal Service said in a statement.

US FDA clears path for pharmacies to sell abortion pills

Mifepristone is taken in combination with a second drug called misoprostol, typically taken within 10 to 12 weeks of pregnancy to induce what is known as medication abortion.

The U.S. population is finally growing again-but not because Americans are having more kids

The resident population grew by 0.4% in 2022, the Census Bureau said on Thursday, a rebound from last year when population growth almost flatlined at 0.1%.
