There are 9 comments on What the Texas Abortion Law Means for Roe v. Wade

  1. I think it says a lot that the previous two comments are from men. This law is meant to restrict women, it is not meant to “protect the innocent”. As Professor Huberfeld stated, it is most likely underprivileged women who will be disproportionately impacted by this – where is the increased support for programs that will care for these children who are actually born? People who support the social safety net are truly pro-life.

    Abortion will not go away. Instead, women will be injured and die because they attempt unsafe measures to end pregnancies.

        1. Me too! It’s infuriating. I also have an issue with the term “pro-life” being used. Who isn’t pro-life? What they are is anti-choice. If anything, they’re certainly not pro-life in the sense that they don’t seem to care about these babies after their actually born.

  2. I am pro choice, but there is an argument to be made by the pro-lifers. A unique DNA sequence is created after conception, in the form of an embryo. Destroying a body with unique DNA could be argued as murder. Will be interesting to see what happens

  3. Why is is that many of those who don’t want to be vacinated because they want control of their body don’t want girls and women to have control of their own body.
