Thought the leak was just an opinion? How can they ban abortion, do you really think the USA will go back to an era of back street abortions with metal coat hangers and shit? Can't see it myself.
Late term abortions, for non medical reasons, I find abhorrent. That is killing life.
Pretty much. It’s a trip to Mexico or ordering pills off the Internet.
If this draft reflects the final decision of the Court, expected this summer, it would virtually eliminate abortion access in Texas. Last year, the Legislature passed a so-called “trigger law” that would go into effect 30 days after the Supreme Court overturns Roe v. Wade, making performing abortion a felony.
The law would make an exception only to save the life of the pregnant patient or if they risk “substantial impairment of major bodily function.” Doctors could face life in prison and fines up to $100,000 if they perform abortions in violation of the law.
Politico said it obtained a draft Supreme Court majority opinion indicating the landmark abortion ruling will be overturned. Abortion is still legal in Texas up to six weeks of pregnancy.
This is a HUGE gift to state and fed Dems right before the midterms, which will now be a referendum on abortion and not Joe Biden or the economy.
