Now that politicians on either side can't just rubber stamp yes or no vote on abortion laws by relying on Roe v Wade, Republican politicians find themselves dealing with pro-life crazies.

Ok seriously, it's actually an interesting look at the evolving situation, and shed some light on where things are going with conservative states. The question is, will these politicians find some spines and dump the radical nut jobs:

Another interesting thing is someone leaked this recording, which indicates someone with at least a brain cell and an ounce of conscience wants to discreetly prompt public support to save the politicians' asses so they can have some excuse to move further back to the center. From the article:

His position seems to more closely reflect the attitudes of the majority of Tennesseeans: While 50% identify as “pro-life,” 80% believe abortion should be either completely legal or legal under some conditions.

Yep, the Republicans are like the proverbial dog that finally caught the car. They totally have no idea how to make coherent abortion law that will prevent cases like this, and so the public will move against them: https://www.dailymail.co.uk/health/article-11440597/Texas-woman-forced-carry-unviable-fetus-nearly-dies-sepsis-states-abortion-ban.html

The GOP did this to themselves.

When state Sen. Richard Briggs voted “yes” on Tennessee’s total abortion ban, he never thought it would actually go into effect.

Cynical AF. This state's legislature is corrupt AF. All they have to do is p0wn the libs and they get voted in.

Republicans know their party is dying. Their “red wave” turned out to be a red trickle. They’re panicking and trying to cover their asses before the whole thing disappears.
