If Roe v. Wade is overturned by the Supreme Court, Democrats have vowed to fight for the legislation of the decision.
Following the disclosure of Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito’s draft majority opinion that would overturn the landmark case, Democrats have launched a movement to codify Roe v. Wade into federal law. However, the adoption of such legislation would come with its own set of legal challenges to overcome.
According to a remark from Turley given to The News God, he stated earlier this week that “constitutional concerns might be presented.” If particular conditions are met, the practice of withholding funds from the state could be deemed illegal.
On Wednesday, Sen. Joe Manchin, Democrat of West Virginia, joined all fifty Republicans in voting against an attempt by Senate Democrats to support a bill that would ensure access to abortions across the country. This prompted Sen. Turley to make his comments.
Democrats have vowed to continue the struggle and have asked voters to back legislators who are pro-choice in the midterm elections that will take place this year.
