"If that frightened, unemployed 19-year-old knows that she and her child will have access to medical care whenever it's needed," Hume explained, "she's more likely to carry the baby to term. Isn't it obvious?"
Imagine two scenarios:
1) Universal health care is passed, but Roe is not reversed.
2) Roe is reversed, but universal health care is defeated.
