America was fighting for human rights in Afghanistan including the rights of women which have been violated by the Taliban. Yet now the right Republican state of Texas has passed a law criminalizing abortion over 6 weeks gestation, even in cases of rape and incest. To enforce the new law Texas is offering rewards of $10000 to anyone who successfully sued a woman who has an abortion. The anti abortion payouts can also be earned for sueing any medical staff involved in an abortion or even sueing someone for driving a woman to a clinic for a termination.
Dreadful violation of woman's rights.
Texas or Taliban , take your choice .

Why is it (nearly always) men who decide what a woman can do with her body? Look at anything restricting women’s rights and there will be a man leading the charge.
The USA is going backwards as fast as they can!
