Both sides of the abortion debate are ready to act in a post-Roe v. Wade world, according to the latest poll.
When it comes to abortion, the Supreme Court’s ruling in the case Dobb v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization in Mississippi has the potential to signal a sea change in the nation’s attitudes about the procedure.
However, a leaked draft opinion from February indicated that the court may proceed in this manner, even though the decision had not yet been completed.
A conservative majority on the Supreme Court is expected to overturn decades of precedent following the landmark decision restricting the government’s authority to regulate abortion, according to some predictions. The state legislatures could use this method to make abortion before the fetus is viable unconstitutional.
