Supreme Court's decision in abortion case will affect dozens of states beyond Mississippi

WASHINGTON – Dr. DeShawn Taylor considers herself fortunate to have spent a career working in states where the laws governing abortion are relatively straightforward.

But the owner of the Desert Star Family Planning clinic in Arizona knows the drama unfolding at the Supreme Court over Mississippi’s ban on most abortions after 15 weeks of pregnancy could have immediate consequences for her practice as well.

"With the court's current composition, I am very concerned," said Taylor, an OB-GYN, noting the 6-3 conservative advantage on the high court. "Abortion would be outlawed in Arizona if we lost Roe v. Wade, and I don't think people understand that."

The Supreme Court will hear arguments Wednesday in a major challenge to Mississippi’s 15-week ban. The justices' decision could quickly involve other conservative states that have approved abortion bans in anticipation of a ruling.

1. In some ways I wouldn't mind seeing Roe being overturned for the simple

reason that it is such a political issue for many religious fundamentalists.

However, it would be a terrible blow to women who would be forced back to the 1960's and create a totally unnecessary health crisis and and a human rights issue for women.

So we shall very soon see if the GOP packed court changes our nation for the next 50 years.

2. Arizona has about 12,000 abortions a year. How will our foster care program be additionally

funded with that many unwanted babies? We are stretched beyond our budget already, and we have children sleeping on office floors.
