Roe Could Soon Fall, And Jill Stein’s Supporters Made It Possible

Roe Could Soon Fall, And Jill Stein's Supporters Made It Possible

President-elect Donald Trump  Roe vowed to appoint an anti-abortion justice to the Supreme Court, and if his pick is confirmed, women’s reproductive rights could change forever. In 1973, the Supreme Court ruled that women have the right to an abortion in their ruling on Roe v. Wade. Now, however, that decision is under threat. It’s 5-4, says Elizabeth Nash of the Guttmacher Institute, referring to the court’s current makeup on abortion issues in an interview with CNN. You’re looking at one or two votes changing the whole context. So what can pro-choice activists do?

How anti-abortion laws can affect your health

A woman’s reproductive health is deeply interconnected with her mental and physical health. Access to legal abortion can be crucial in cases of rape or incest, as well as in times of pregnancy complications that would otherwise put the woman at risk. Currently, 12 states have only one abortion clinic in the entire state. If Roe. Wade was overturned on appeal at the Supreme Court,

individual states would determine whether abortion remains legal or not. This means that potentially hundreds of women would need to travel out-of-state for an abortion — a privilege for which many cannot afford given the cost or distance from home.

The dangers of self-induced abortions

Nearly all Americans have either heard of or can recognize the term Roe v. Wade. Many also know that it stands for the 1973 Supreme Court decision to legalize abortion in the United States. But what most do not know is that Roe’s repeal could come much sooner than many anticipated.

Activists on both sides of the political spectrum are pushing hard to get rid of Roe v. Wade once and for all–and they may just succeed if one more key justice retires from their position on the Supreme Court before 2020. This would be a huge loss to women everywhere because, without Roe, many of them would be forced to self-induce abortions in dangerous ways (such as with illegal drugs or sharp objects).

How to handle an unwanted pregnancy?

If you’re reading this then you’re probably feeling pretty scared about the future. Fear not – you are not alone. According to a recent study from the Guttmacher Institute, approximately 30% of American women have an unplanned pregnancy by age 20, and 42% by age 30.

Most people think that terminating the pregnancy is the only way out – but don’t panic just yet! Abortion has never been more accessible. You do have options! Here are a few things you can do if you find yourself in this situation:

* Go see your doctor for a prenatal examination to be sure it was just one incident

* Tell your friends and family how you feel so they can support you in whatever decision you make

* Consider adoption as an option.

Reviewing everything you thought you knew about abortion

This election has shown us a deeply divided America. In the spirit of the time, what if we take the moment to review our opinions and explore someone else’s perspective?

During Roe v. Wade (1973), the Supreme Court struck down all state abortion laws as unconstitutional because they violated a woman’s right to privacy as enumerated in the due process clause of the 14th Amendment. The decision was made based on three basic principles: viability outside of a mother’s womb; maternal health; and freedom from governmental intrusion into abortion decisions. These principles were essentially upheld by Planned Parenthood v.

Donald Trump’s Impact on Abortion Rulings

On Monday, Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy will retire from the bench. One of the most consequential votes in history was Kennedy’s vote to uphold Roe v. Wade and affirm the right to abortion.

Should he step down now and Trump replace him with a conservative nominee like his appointee Neil Gorsuch, this landmark case would likely be overturned. Not only would all state bans on abortion be enacted, but abortion bans such as those in Ohio could also stand in states without pre-existing protections.

How Jill Stein Can Help Save Abortion Rights

Dr. Jill Stein has been an outspoken advocate for reproductive rights and for keeping abortion safe and legal. She also recently published a statement on her website explaining how Roe v. Wade could be overturned soon if Clinton or Trump becomes president. Even though these two candidates have different stances on the issue of choice, they both want to nominate Supreme Court Justices who will not uphold Roe v.

Wade due to their anti-abortion beliefs. Dr. Stein encourages pro-choice Americans to vote their conscience at the polls and leave Clinton and Trump on the sidelines to make sure Roe v. Wade remains intact, protecting a woman’s right to choose if she wants an abortion during this crucial time in history…
