But Halloran seems to take greater issue with the words people use to talk about forced pregnancy than the actual, devastating impacts of abortion bans, which have resulted in case after case of people experiencing severe pregnancy complications being denied life-saving abortion care. Tragic stories continue to emerge from every state with an abortion ban: a child rape victim in Ohio forced to travel across state lines for care; an Oklahoma mother of three told to wait in a hospital parking lot for her cancerous pregnancy to worsen before doctors could legally provide care; a six-hour ambulance ride out of Tennessee to the nearest state without an abortion ban as a woman faced life-threatening pregnancy complications.

The toll of abortion bans has been immeasurable, but Halloran seems only concerned with abortion rights supporters stating the obvious: that people are being forced to be pregnant. That, and/or he just…doesn’t know what sex is.
