MARKET FUTURES FOR PENNYROYAL
Those of you looking forward to the outlawing of all abortions might want to take a look at the underground market economy for abortifacients in Mexico, a country where abortion is outlawed. The Los Angeles Times today has a lengthy article on the herbs-and-voodoo economy that caters to desperate women ... all of which may be suddenly rendered obsolete if Mexico City's Legislative Assembly votes to legalize abortion in that city of 8 million.
Pennyroyal is a member of the mint family and grows like a weed at these elevations. Once Nathan Tabor and his ilk succeed in criminalizing abortion, we guess they'll want to criminalize the cultivation of pennyroyal and other medicinal herbs too.
UPDATE: Mexico City lawmakers did legalize abortion yesterday in that city during the first three months of pregnancy.
