    partisan hacks
    Shocking that 23m for abortions gets tools in an uproar.
    But a billion for GA the country after the bombing gets a collective yawn.

    So fucking what? The international gag rule Reagan implemented (and Clinton nixed the reinstated under economic pressure, and Bush then reinforced) with his Mexico Policy refused to fund any organization, national or non national organization that used their OWN funds to advocate for reproductive rights.

    Hell, you're title is bullshit, as even the OP itself says only, and ONLY MAYBE, part of that 23 mil was used to advocate this sane and humane policy.

    All okay over the years when we ACTIVELY worked against such? That was okay? Even when reproductive rights were the LAW in our own land, it was all sweetness and light to restrict others from making abortion safe and legal in theirs?

    WHAT is the overwhelming attraction to this bipolarity, this utter disregard for intellectual consistency, this blatant disregard for the simple fucking FACT that where abortion is legal and accessible it is also safer and RARER than where it is prohibited?
