Pro-life legislation being passed in states across the country has caused much media panicking. In Missouri, where currently one Planned Parenthood abortion clinic remains, all out hysteria of a “dystopian and radical” future was fed by MSNBC host, Rachel Maddow Friday night. The far-left host seemed to compare preserving abortion access to freeing slaves via the Underground Railroad.
To begin, M’evie Mead, the director of Planned Parenthood Advocates in Missouri, explained the dire nature of the situation stating; “There will be an emergency plan to help patients access health care outside of the state.”
Maddow clarified the end-time prepping narrative with an apparent reference to the underground railroad; “What you are describing there in terms of the emergency plan, if there needs to be a railroad effort in Missouri to try to help women get out of state to get to places where they can access abortion care because they can’t get it anywhere in the state…”
She then continued: “In addition to seeming dystopian and radical, it also sounds really expensive.” Though the future is pretty bleak for the pro-choicers, it’s a good thing they were all born to continue trumpeting their dissent.
Mead responded “…Yes, there are financial burdens that people will bear…” but made sure to bring the conversation around to the important point saying; “This is a safe, legal, common, medical procedure, and we should not be erecting these tremendous barriers because they have a negative impact on people’s lives.” Ironically, they have a positive impact on thousands of fetus’ lives, but of course, according to MSNBC, a fetus isn’t living…now that would be ‘radical.’
Here is the transcript from the May 31 episode of The Rachel Maddow Show:

M’EVIE MEAD [DIRECTOR, PLANNED PARENTHOOD ADVOCATES MISSOURI]: There will be an emergency plan to help patients access health care outside of the state. But people do need to know that already Missourians are facing tremendous challenges. We know those challenges impact people further away from the urban areas, so rural Missourians, people with lower incomes, with less ability and flexibility to move across state lines and take the time, the child care, the days off work to access abortion. So what the governor is doing is absolutely negatively impacting all Missourians. Certainly the most vulnerable are the hardest hit.
RACHEL MADDOW: What you’re describing um, you mentioned the legal fight and the expense around the legal fight. What you are describing there in terms of the emergency plan, if there needs to be a railroad effort in Missouri to try to help women get out of state to get to places where they can access abortion care because they can't get it anywhere in the state, in addition to seeming dystopian and radical, it also sounds really expensive. It sounds like you are already in a very expensive fight right now and it sounds like the future might be expensive, particularly if the court succeeds in shutting you down. Is that right for me to discern that?
MEAD: Yeah. There is significant costs all around. As I said, yes, there are financial burdens that people will bear and that I want to say that I'm super appreciative of all the folks who have stepped up and tried to increase their ability to donate or give. But I think the most important cost and the ones that we want to center are the negative impacts on people's lives. This is a safe, legal common medical procedure, and we should not be erecting these tremendous barriers because they have negative consequences on people’s lives.
