Plan B, Anyone?

by Steven Kent

“The Abortion Ban Backlash Is Starting to Freak Out Republicans”
The New York Times

We sought to win election fights
Through stripping women of their rights
And tried to build our voting bloc
By turning, turning back the clock,
But now I fear we’ve dropped the ball:
They don’t seem happy, not at all,
These modern women (Red and Blue).
Our vision isn’t theirs—who knew?
