1. That's what it's always been about. Mainly to provide cannon fodder. And, BTW:

The 1% do not believe in the morality play that's being served up here. They never have.

They are not subject to these laws, were able to get abortions and birth control before they were made available to the lower classes. There was a period in the sixties and seventies when the rights of the poor and middle class were bubbling up.

These were people who wanted more control over their lives. The Koches and other one percenters decided to influence the people with their default contol mechanism, religion, racism, etc. Example being the rise of televangelism and Reagan, and the rest of them.

Now their lackeys are taking every form of control back for them, denying access to healthcare, voting and jobs in addition to this. It keeps the poor running in circles and desperate.

These games are for increasing the number of the poor, who are being set at each other's throats by the propagandists of the GOP.

Voltaire made a statement on this particular societal phenomenon over two centuries ago. Nothing has changed in that time.

“The comfort of the rich depends upon an abundant supply of the poor.” -Voltaire
