hmmm. Just noticed that links loaded after clicking on 'more' in global doesn't cause the 'filter ____' option to appear on hover.

Richard Branson's anecdote corroborates CB's view.

    Some years ago, Mr Trump invited me to lunch for a one-to-one meeting at his apartment in Manhattan. We had not met before and I accepted. Even before the starters arrived he began telling me about how he had asked a number of people for help after his latest bankruptcy and how five of them were unwilling to help. He told me he was going to spend the rest of his life destroying these five people.

The situation all around fucked up then. I was hoping that at the very least there was a pragmatic solution until the legislation was revoked. Something like how Irishwomen travel to Britain for the procedure :|

Does this also extend to going overseas? I would imagine that if it were posited as a human rights or corruption regulation it would, but IDK if that is the case.

Okay, dumb question: What would prevent the woman from simply hopping one state over and getting the procedure done there?
