"Are there no coat hangars?"

This article describes the probable results of the latest anti-abortion bill in the U.S.

The quote from "A Christmas Carol" by Charles Dickens is by the miser, Scrooge. When he's asked to donate money for the poor, Scrooge asks, "Are there no prisons? Are there no workhouses?" [Poor people used to be sent to workhouses to do hard labour in exchange for subsistence rations.]
