and not have to answer questions, even to a policeman about whether they are coming from or going. IT IS ONLY THE WOMAN's BUSINESS. Why does this even come up, and with all the FREEDOM, FREEDOM (including people who say they have freedom not to infect other people through Covid), every single United States citizen should be shouting that women are free to travel. But some Republicans do not think so. Republicans block bill to protect women who travel to other states for abortions. Republicans want to say that anyone who objects to women being able to travel out of state is radical. I'm sure if some of these people lived around the time when slavery was legal and some slaves travelled to *free* states would have thought that was radical too. And how the heck would this even be enforced? Have traffic stops at state lines where every women would be questioned about where they were going and coming from and what purpose for going into another UNITED STATES state? Sheesh. It's interesting to note that apparently there was a chance when covid was rampant that President Biden might mandate vaccinations for interstate travel-the article, from Daily Wire, says that would have likely violated the Commerce Clause of the Constitution. Well, SO WOULD STOPPING WOMEN. Are Republicans really wanted to put out a standard that definitely sets women as less deserving of citizenship than men? Not all Republicans, apparently just the House Republican Representatives, because there are Republican Senators who know this would be unconstitutional My view is that it should not depend upon companies to cover travel expenses to get to a state where women are treated as equal citizens of the United States. In fact, criminal kooks like Texas Republican Legislators went to pass legislation that And this is already happening. My guess is that Texas no longer wants to be business friendly and is wanting to chase off qualified professional employees that will live elsewhere, especially women who believe their lives are in danger due to the radical legislation re: abortions. Back to my original premise. I saw the other day someone on a chat board mention that they had been stopped for speeding and the woman driving was asked where she was going (she was in a different state than she lived in). The question is, does this sort-of "SHOW US YOUR PAPERS" have to be done? Even if were a man being asked, is this a legitimate question given the context? ACLU Adding- The Republican party wants to pretend that they are not trying to prevent women from travelling freely to other states. HELLO_ TEXAS! Rolling Stone
