citizens in one conservative state reject abortion bans,  
and politicians in another pass laws to ban.

@RBReich : Thanks to the filibuster, 41 Senate Republicans representing just 21% of the country are blocking abortion rights, clean energy, health care, and basic investments supported by the vast majority of Americans. This is not how democracy is supposed to work.

While I might be somewhat off-topic... really? - So, tell us, what is it the world needs from America right now? It shouldn't be hard for you to tell, as you are such a superior MAGA nation, of course...
My madness seems to serve me, as the days of Coca-Cola and Rock'n'Roll have gone by.
So, what will be next from your beloved ministry of democratic marketing? - Will it be "Duck And Cover", again?

Meanwhile... to call you back to reality:
Have you had an abortion? The border guard in California asks the Australian woman on her way to Canada during the stopover.

This has got nothing to do with most Americans, so your screed is nonsense. 

There are some Americans who are against abortion or whatever, and their strategies have included infiltrating positions of power to change/create/rescind laws allowing abortion that most people want.
This doesn’t mean that society isn’t free, or that it’s now â€œa bunch” of fundamentalists (a vague term at best). It does mean that there are that sort of people - a minority - who did a dance around the complacent, and fooled the naive, and managed to pull some levers that they hope will force others into doing what they want.

That requires action. All the folks who feel differently need to recognize their numbers, protest and vote and say out loud what they believe in so the minority opinion doesn’t control the nation. But your Chicken Little garment-rending about how it’s all falling apart…well, it just means you need to go decaf.

Umrika is shapeshifting herself, far too quickly for that one, and Umrikans (most likely) haven't begun noticing this yet, as ever-proud they were born to save the world from anything undemocratic by implying very undemocratic means to other nations.

The question of abortion can only arise in a free society. Umrika has successfully shown, they are not that. Instead, they are made to be a bunch of fundamentalists, with true monetary and power intentions hidden behind a religious veil.

Interesting opinion piece in the NYT today where this same idea is referenced obliquely - but there’s an excellent distinction between conscientious objectors (who won’t provide what the patient wants out of conscience, so deniers of what someone’s entitled to) versus conscientious providers (who break the law to give the patient what they need, regardless). 

FTA: The American legal regime that governs medical conscience is broken. 
While conscientious providers find virtually no refuge in the conscience clauses that are codifiedin almost every state, refusers are protected almost categorically. And just about all of these conscience laws are reserved for denials of care. 
Conscientious refusers are often shielded from being fired, disciplined, held liable or found guilty for violating standards of care and endangering patients, even in serious ways. 
Conscientious refusers usually don’t have to tell patients about their options, or help them to access care elsewhere. 

But few protections exist for doctors who have equally conscientious reasons to provide abortions.

The middle ages are here again!

Could be Pakistan, or Afghanistan, or Iran. Not to mention Saudi Arabia, as today's ever more popular heads-off regime, shapeshifting from failed to friendliest state ever! - It is because, y'all know, sanctions we imposed are must!

It would take a lot, but I’d suggest that ALL women’s health care providers should just go about their business, without modification. What happens next? Prosecution (tying up the courts), imprisonment (really?), loss of license (more likely) and then - what happens to women’s health care in general in the nation? Not that it’s already great.

But just like police have to give up on arresting EVERYONE that takes a toke in states where it’s illegal, if provision of abortion is so widespread that it’s impossible to enforce the law practically…

Agreed.

In order for people to live well, be at least moderately 'successful' in life, the amount of human capital that must be invested in one individual is bigger than at any other time in human history.
