Many states had very strict anti-abortion laws on the books before Roe v. Wade and were

never struck down or suspended.

Arizona, where I live, is one of them.

It is wise to know what is on the books of the states you live in today.

2. And Roe v. Wade was based on the previous decision on the right to privacy

that allowed people to use contraception -- Griswold v. Connecticut.

That same case later ended laws that made it a crime to engage in gay sex (sodomy).

And all that made the marriage equality ruling possible.

3. I wouldn't be surprised if these dangerous clowns went after all of them.

And the Brown decision too.

4. in illinois, we passed a law

that says that even if roe is struck down, it will continue to be legal in illinois.

nobody here wants to go back to the day when cook county hospital had a whole ward for women who had botched abortion. it was called the sepsis ward.
