Maine’s newly elected Democratic governor, Janet Mills, signed a bill Monday granting medical professionals who are not licensed doctors the authority to perform abortion procedures.

In a statement released Monday, Mills argued that the bill, which will allow registered nurses and physician assistants to administer abortion-inducing drugs and perform in-clinic abortions.

“Allowing qualified and licensed medical professionals to perform abortions will ensure that Maine women, especially those in rural areas, are able to access critical reproductive health care services when and where they need them from qualified providers they know and trust,” Mills said.

Maine joins California, Colorado, Vermont, and New Hampshire in allowing individuals who are not licensed physicians to administer abortions. "States across the country, including Vermont and New Hampshire, have already eliminated this outdated restriction on abortion care,” said Democratic state representative Sara Gideon, who sponsored the bill. “This law will allow women to receive the care they need from a provider they trust and eliminate the financial and logistical hurdles they face today.”

So much for "safe, rare, and legal". Clearly, only the last part is important to these radicals.
Why the fuck do you care. Healthcare for women in this country is 3rd world. We have the highest infant mortality of any "modern" nation. As for banning abortion that's just a little game you all play, "see we love the little bitty unborn babies" once they have life out of the uterus, "whaddya mean I gotta pay for that kids healthcare, they're not entitled to Healthcare. I don't want to pay for the mama's prenatal care either. .". You all are so caring.

People will avoid getting abortions by taking abortion pills. Much safer than getting an abortion. Almost impossible to prevent women from doing this. Sorry, pro-lifers.

I should give you that, that should never have been a question even a rhetorical question. You don't care, you just want your political noise.
I have to admit. Bemoaning the infant mortality rate while arguing to make abortion easier is certainly an... interesting take.

Well in all fairness if you can squeeze a pair of tongs and use a vacuum cleaner you can do an abortion.
