Washington, DC – Since the passage of several state laws that ban abortion either entirely, as in the Alabama ban, or early in pregnancy at six to eight weeks gestation, as in Ohio, Georgia, and Missouri, there has been much talk of how the U.S. Supreme Court will take up one or more of these new laws and finally overturn Roe v. Wade.
Barring some unexpected Supreme Court declaration that pre-born babies should be treated as “persons” under the Constitution, simply overturning Roe would revert the decision whether or not to allow abortion to each state.
In anticipation that the newly conservative Supreme Court may nullify Roe v. Wade, Planned Parenthood and other abortionists have been carefully laying out a backup plan in the event that Roe falls — one that has already been partially implemented.
It involves the interstate dispensing abortion pills by mail.
