There has been leaked drafts coming from the Supreme Court that would potentially overturn Roe v. Wade. This was the landmark which legalized abortion nationwide. After the draft was leaked the Supreme Court did confirm that it was authentic however, they did clarify that there hasn’t been a final ruling. With that being said, taking away Roe v Wade could ban all abortions in less than thirty days.
There has been a huge controversy with this news getting leaked. There has been a poll that shows a nearly two to one margin, with voters opposing the overturning of Roe v. Wade. Half of voters say Roe v. Wade should not be overturned. While this decision is still up for debate, many people believe the Supreme Court is already leaning in one direction.
With that being said, there must be thoughts about what could come next. If abortion becomes illegal many believe there will be more unsafe practices by women. Making them illegal may not make them stop but rather would force woman to terminate pregnancies in a much more dangerous way. Along with this, women may also travel thousands of miles in order to safely terminate their pregnancy.
As of right now, abortions are legal while the decision is pending amongst the Supreme Court. However, with this decision being up for debate this can change in the near future. In the mean time, many people are holding protests, signing petitions, and taking votes in order to voice their opinion.
