He earned my respect with the "abortion ban". 24 weeks is the sane, moderate, politically supported position. Which is why he won reelection after doing it.

It’s political theater at the expense of women’s rights; nobody is getting abortions after 24 weeks.

Exactly, which is why he didn’t need to sign it into law. By signing it into law, he’s performing political theater at the expense of women’s rights, like I said.

Not really. There are so many exceptions to 24 weeks to make it mostly meaningless.
