If Roe v. Wade is overturned, then immediately abortion will become illegal (due to trigger law, making abortion illegal as soon as Roe v. Wade is overturned) in 13 states: ID, WY, UT, ND, SD, MO, OK, TX, AR, LA, KY, TN, MS, whereas states with codified right to abortion (protecting women’s right to abortion regardless what happens with Roe v. Wade) in 17 other states and Washington D.C.: WA, OR, CA, NV, CO, NM, IL, NY, ME, VT, MA, RI, CT, NJ, DE, DC, MD. There are many parts of USA that has neither protection nor ban in place, therefore, if Roe v. Wade is overturned, states with neither protection nor ban of abortion in place will expect to have the highest voters’ turn out in the coming election. THIS IS IT!!! THIS WILL BE THE ISSUE FOR NEXT ELECTION!!! For it is not just about abortion rights but rights to privacy, upon which Roe v. Wade was stemmed from. Privacy law is foundational for many past decisions and overturnig Roe v. Wade will prevent American citizens to have privacy from his/her government. PERIOD! We are facing a critical time in American history. All Americans should be alarmed! However, it has been long time coming and Americans should not be surprised.
There are 13 states with trigger law and 26 states would make it illegal to have abortion as soon as Supreme Court overturns Roe v. Wade. There are 17 states/DC with codified right to abortion. Some states are considering to criminalize women who would travel across state lines to obtain an abortion. If Roe v. Wade is overturned, it may also lead to criminalizing use of birth control for married couple or marriage equality which was finally recognized by Supreme Court in 2015. Finally, the legitimacy of the Supreme Court may be in peril if Roe v. Wade will be overturned and leading to an entire population group growing up with Roe v. Wade decision, believing in women’s right to their body in being protected, may now question the legitimacy of U.S. Supreme Court. Furthermore, what would prevent other previous decisions from being overturned?
