Congress has a new plan to divide and conquer: the 20-week abortion ban. What could be wrong with that? Plenty!

The primary message, regardless of phrasing, seems to be that although all genders are equal in the eyes of God, cisgender men are simply more equal than the rest.
If we, as a Nation, are to continue to perfect this Union for next generations, engaging in open, honest discourse about our biases when they surface is paramount. Denial, dismissive, dispassionate and derisive behavior will only reproduce the disharmony and discrimination we are witnessing and mistakenly deem them as random occurrences.
Today I want to talk with you about fourth trimester abortions. I hope you are already asking yourself what this means. The term itself makes no sen...
