    "Tell Joe Biden: Open Abortion Clinics on Federal Lands"

    "We will be delivering this petition to the White House, so we want as many people to sign as possible. Please add your name and share this page with family and friends."

    PETITION TEXT:

    " On Friday, the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade, undermining a half century of precedent behind our fundamental rights to an abortion and bodily autonomy. We have to take immediate, bold action to ensure people can get the care they need in the wake of this dangerous ruling. Today we are calling on President Biden and the White House to take executive action to open abortion clinics on federal lands. This small step could help expand access to life-saving abortion care for people in all 50 states."

    I am far from being a lawyer, but it might work.

    It's more complicated than meets the eye. Disney tried to do something similar where they made Disneyworld somewhere between its own city-state and a federal entity, but how that works with things like worker protections, state taxation, zoning regulations etc made it untenable.

    As much as I would like federal land abortion clinics, that money would be better spent on increasing accessibility or fighting against the notion that healthcare should be a states right issue at all.

    No name designated at this time.
    Just what "Federal lands are you talking about?
    BLM
    National Forrest
    National Parks
    Among some of them
    The federal government owns about 620 million acres.
    So just where do you want these clinics to go?

    I am not so sure myself. In most ways it would be the moral thing to do. Is it the legal thing to do Constitutionally?

    I see no constitutional problem.
    And the fed has superior authority on federal land.

    They could go in federal buildings perhaps.

    Wouldn't that be an interesting doozy for history. That time where the post office became an abortion provider to earn some much needed cash.

    By the time they get a clinic built, the anti-abortionists will have begun passing federal restrictions.
    They've probably got proposals waiting on the shelf or being ironed out by ALEC as we speak.

    Neither rain nor sleet nor gloom of night will keep
    the abortionist from their appointed rounds.

    Sounds like it might work, although it depends on which type of federal land they're talking about. There's a lot of Federal land in the Western states, although not so much in the Eastern states.

    Of course, there's also veterans' hospitals and military-owned land, along with Federal office buildings in most jurisdictions.

    That gives the word "vacation" a whole new meaning.

    Some of that stuff will surely violate other amendments.

    Nothing new really. Women have often had to invent stories to explain where they were when they were having this procedure. Especially conservative women.
