Technically that title is wrong. Roe v Wade was overturned in 1992 by Planned Parenthood v Casey, which got rid of the the trimester qualification and dropped the age of viability from 28 weeks to 23 weeks. Abortions after 23 were illegal.

Why should there be riots?

All this decision has done is remove the federal government from the picture and return the rights back to the states.

It doesn't make abortion illegal. It just removes the federal government's hand (stranglehold) over the issue.

Statistically, a good majority who want abortions already live in Democrat states so for them, nothing will change.

I posted this in another discussion but it’s important enough to post twice.

Showtalk said...

protesters attempted to breach the state Senate building and created a dangerous situation for lawmakers.

Those attempting to breach the Senate building should be treated no better than those still locked up in the Jan 6th ordeal.

Otherwise, it would be unfair to those locked up for the Jan 6th breach.

It's illegal. Lock them up.

Yes, they should be arrested and treated like any insurrectionists.

More than 2 dozen states to restrict abortions after Roe v Wade overturned in Dobbs decision

Published June 24, 2022 10:23am EDT
Abortion faces restrictions, bans in at least 25 states, or half the country

Thirteen states in the country are poised to enact immediate abortion bans and at least 13 more could quickly follow suit after the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade on Friday, leaving abortion rights up to the states to decide.
 
At least 13 states in the country have so-called "trigger laws" banning most abortions that will take effect immediately or within weeks of Roe v. Wade being overturned. 
 
According to the Guttmacher Institute, a pro-abortion rights research group, those states are Arkansas, Idaho, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, North Dakota, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah and Wyoming, which just passed its trigger law in April.
 
There are also five additional states – Alabama, Arizona, Michigan, West Virginia and Wisconsin – that still have an abortion ban on the books from before Roe v. Wade that will go into effect now that the 1973 landmark law is overturned. 
 
The Democratic governors of Michigan and Wisconsin have pushed back against those laws: Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer filed a lawsuit in April asking the Michigan Supreme Court to stop enforcement of the state’s 1931 abortion ban, and Wisconsin Gov. Tony Evers has called for the repeal of an 1849 state law that makes abortion a felony.
 
13 STATES HAVE TRIGGER LAWS AUTOMATICALLY BANNING MOST OR ALL ABORTIONS IF SUPREME COURT OVERTURNS ROE V WADE
 
People protest after the leak of a draft opinion written by Justice Samuel Alito that would overturn Roe v. Wade, in New York City, May 3, 2022.
 
Thus, the overturning of Roe v. Wade causes at least 18 states to ban most abortions almost immediately, according to Guttmacher's research. 
 
Four additional states – Georgia, Iowa, Ohio and South Carolina – all have laws banning abortions after the six-week mark, which were previously ruled unconstitutional but will be revisited now that Roe is overturned.

In addition, Florida, Indiana, Montana and Nebraska appear likely, based on current legislative efforts, to move to ban or severely restrict abortions now that Roe is overturned.
 
In total, the Guttmacher Institute estimates that 26 of 50 states are certain or likely to ban abortion now that Roe is overturned. The Center for Reproductive Rights, an abortion rights legal group, counts 25 states as likely to ban abortion, including North Carolina and Pennsylvania but not including Florida, Iowa, or Montana. 
 
Meanwhile, abortion access is expected to continue or even expand in blue states like California and Oregon, which have moved to protect abortion rights in recent weeks.

Opponents are lying and saying that the decision will prevent medical care in cases of etopic pregnancy or miscarriage. They are scaring people unnecessarily.

How does the Roe v. Wade reversal impact treatment for ectopic pregnancies?

It’s unclear. The reversal of Roe v. Wade has left decisions on abortion to states and treatment for an ectopic pregnancy could be considered an abortion by some definitions, Dr. Shepherd says.

“There are gray areas the law doesn’t address,” she says. “Some ectopic pregnancies still have fetuses with heartbeats and in states that have a ban on abortion and those who rely on heartbeat to determine if it is legal, it can cause some hesitation to treatment in this instance. Doctors may hesitate to perform procedures to treat these pregnancies for fear someone will accuse them of performing a covert abortion.”

This, Dr. Shepherd says, “impedes health care because physicians should not be fearful for being criminalized for taking care of patients.”

But Dr. Streicher says treatment for an ectopic pregnancy shouldn’t be considered an abortion. “An abortion is terminating a viable pregnancy—these are not viable pregnancies,” she says. “That’s why this is so mind-boggling that this could be an issue with Roe, but it is.” Dr. Streicher also notes that these pregnancies can be devastating for patients who “overwhelmingly” want to have a baby.

However, while a lot of the state legislature around abortion is still being decided, states typically have exemptions for when the life of the mother is in danger. Meaning, care for an ectopic pregnancy should still be considered legal.
