The countermove is for a state to refuse Title X funding. This might be a simple refusal, or might be accompanied by litigation to relieve that state's citizens of a portion of their federal tax obligation. (That one is the real stinger.)Tax relief in proportion to a state's declining to take part in federal programs that come with oppressive or otherwise undesirable strings would be more effective if it were multi-state. And there'd be considerably more incentive to do it if it applied to multiple, expensive programs (Title X can't be much of a state's budget, especially since Medicaid covers contraception).
That strikes me as a fine idea.
Coupled, in the inevitable eventuality of losing the court case and being required to deliver the tax monies, with the "civil disobedience" of the States refusing to deliver the tax monies.Eric Hines
