Mobilizations Planned as Supreme Court Targets [sic] Roe

Source: Common Dreams

“Abortion rights advocates geared up to mobilize in the nation’s capital and across the United States on Tuesday following the leak of a draft decision signaling that the Supreme Court’s right-wing majority is poised to overturn Roe v. Wade. While the decision outlined in the draft opinion (authored by Justice Samuel Alito) is not yet final, it would strike a devastating blow to reproductive rights in large swaths of the U.S. Experts at the Guttmacher Institute have estimated that if the landmark 1973 decision is overturned, 26 states are ‘certain or likely’ to completely outlaw abortion. At least 13 states (including Arkansas, Kentucky, Utah, and Louisiana) currently have in place so-called ‘trigger laws’ that would ban abortion in all or most cases automatically if the Supreme Court ends Roe.” (05/03/22)
