Texas Stasi 

Feeling sick about our country. Beyond the inhumane misogyny, the Texas abortion bounty law is very East German.

"The state occasionally paid the Gute Menschen as well, sometimes handing them up to 100 marks, or giving them a nice present."

Vile.

@pb thank you for making this comparison. I generally hate comparisons to Stasi (or Nazis) because they are hyperbolic and ahistorical. But I think it's absolutely appropriate in this case. The abortion restrictions are awful. But to try to enact it with a "get paid to snitch on your neighbors" legal structure is just appalling.
