Roe v. Wade: It’s easily the source of the most debate in America when it comes to women’s rights. But should women really have the right to murder their unborn children? Not everyone thinks so – and Trump is now making the possibility of rolling back the 1973 law very possible, and very real.
In fact, the likelihood of women’s right to abort being removed is so high that some states have already started preparing new regulations to address the change. Two of the states involved aim to make it illegal or remove the requirement for funding altogether; the third actually endorses and codifies the right to murder babies, including necessitating funding, even if it is repealed.
At least two states are “doin’ it for themselves!”
• A total of nine states already have laws in place, most of which were created prior to Roe v. Wade, banning abortion. These states include Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, Michigan, Mississippi, New Mexico, Oklahoma, West Virginia and Wisconsin.
• If repealed, laws banning abortion in these states will immediately become valid and upheld. This does mean that women would be unable to have abortions without traveling to a different state.
• Legislation on when abortion would be permitted differs from state to state. Some states make abortion entirely illegal, while others allow it in medically necessary scenarios (such as to save the woman’s life or to remove a non-viable fetus who would suffer pain and/or die after birth).
• Alabama and West Virginia have both stepped up to the plate, preparing for the future turnover of this horrific practice, by prepping their regulatory systems for fast change. Alabama is sending voters to the polls to decide the fate of abortion in November.
• West Virginians will also vote; however, they will vote on whether “nothing in this Constitution secures or protects a right to abortion or requires the funding of abortion” rather than an outright ban.
• Leftist Maryland, unfortunately, doesn’t appear to be seeing the light, or doesn’t care about the lives of unborn children. We’re disgusted and saddened to share that the state is planning to enact protections that ensure abortion funding and support is a RIGHT for citizens… not just an option. This will have devastating consequences, like forcing medical providers to suggest it as an option to fearful, vulnerable women who lack advocates.
• Just how likely is it for Roe v. Wade to be overturned? Two years ago, we would have told you it was unlikely. But a general shift in attitudes, and much more support from the White House, shows an improvement in support for the ban. It’s very likely we may see this unfold in the near future.
