"Keep Your Laws Off My Body!", they screeched until they were blue in the face. They insisted that the government had no business interfering with their "womens' health issues"...

What is it with this administration -- a general envy and resentment of success ("You didn't build that!") or just a general incompetence at anything to do with basic economics? Like the old and bitter truth that the surest way to make something scarcer is to tax it.
