The importance about Roe v Wade being overturned, is that a lot of states have tried to put in place some restrictions over the years that kept getting shot down by the Supreme Court under the auspices of ‘Roe’. If that were not in place, and each state’s citizens were able to decide for themselves, there would be many states with restrictions that would go a long way toward lowering the total number of abortions in the country. Yes, there would be states in which abortion would still be legal, but I daresay that even in those states, there would be restrictions put in place. These would be easier to pass if citizens couldn’t be scared into thinking that any restrictions would be causing abortion to be outlawed.
You are very correct. It has become “Roe uber alles” - Roe above all and it should be overturned. I think somebody spiked George Will’s prune juice because he has been cranky lately.
