Contributing sentiments towards policy:

51% : I know that that's certainly not something that everybody can do in their own journalism, but set me up to write about the Comstock Act of 1873, and I will go to town, and I will find a way to bring that into reporting on what's going on in the present.
44% : That is information that could be considered against the law to share in some states.
43% : It involves getting into this much more political and nuanced story about what prosecutors do with the law, what they think they can get away with, and that's different in different places.
43% : One of the reasons I'm writing about the Comstock Act right now is there's this legal theory emerging on the right, and among anti-abortion groups, that we already have a national abortion ban in the Comstock Act of 1873, which was never fully taken off the books, and did criminalize using the mail system to mail any instrument that could cause an abortion.
43% : But I just can see a story like that, in a year, people describing it as like "the law that no one saw coming."
39% : And that's another common charge that we see, you know, people trying to find ways to punish people for having an abortion, even though, by the letter of the law, they're not supposed to be able to do that.
39% : Who knows if that's true or not, but it is good for people to know that this incident didn't need the abortion trafficking law to result in criminal punishment for this abortion.
31% : But because that kind of reporting and reporting on abortion are often siloed from one another, we aren't learning across issues of what it is to deal with a prosecutor in a politicized case, and what power they have with the law that exceeds what many of us might think the law could actually do to us.
