Roe v. Wade should be overturned because it was a piece of crap case just on legal terms.

There was no standing to sue, the case was brought before the Court simply to challenge abortion......this case was handpicked, it was chosen, to go to the Court.

The plaintiff had nothing to do with it, that was just a name on a piece of paper.

There were many issues legally wrong with this case which should of made it not even qualified to be heard by the Court but they did it for political reasons.

Either way, it will just go back to the states and there were plenty of states that had abortion legal before Roe v. Wade.

It's not the disaster the left is making it out to be.

If you do want a federal law allowing for abortion you need to bring an actual worthy case before them.

Which, by the way, this Alabama case would be.

Well if the women can get to FLORIDA, we'll take good care of them. It's still legal, mostly unhindered--even as the GOP MISOGYNIST legislature tries and tries again to insert themselves in women's uteruses.

Alabama governor signs controversial abortion ban bill into law
The bill, designed to challenge Roe v. Wade protections, makes it a felony for a doctor to perform or attempt an abortion during any stage of pregnancy.
By Doha Madani

"Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey signed a near-total abortion ban bill designed to challenge more than 40 years of federal abortion protection under Roe v. Wade into law Wednesday."
"The state's Republican governor said in a statement Wednesday that she personally disagrees with the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision and that the legislation was a testament to "Alabamians’ deeply held belief that every life is precious and that every life is a sacred gift from God."
"Heartbeat abortion" bans have also been signed into law in Mississippi, Kentucky and Ohio this year. Lawmakers in Tennessee, Missouri, South Carolina, Florida, Texas, Louisiana and West Virginia are considering similar proposals."

That's the Republicans for you! So that's that for now. Of course there will be appeals to the SCOTUS but with a Conservative majority there many expect that Roe v. Wade may well be finally struck down. This matter is sure to reemerge in the 2020 elections.

News was reporting earlier that now women in Alabama will be FORCED to carry their baby to term like it or not. That also includes whether it was the product of rape or incest as that would make no difference there.

On the one hand, this will be struck down immediately at the district court level and the Supreme Court likely will not interfere with that, at least not now.

On the other hand, to have this law stand would be a political coup for Democrats like nothing else. The raw backlash would be intense, sustained and nationwide, at the same time Republicans would lose some support (a combination of complacent euphoria and reticence among those who felt they went too far).

It is clear in all respects: While abortion remains a 50-50 issue in general, denying it to rape victims is not something people want. It's a broad overreach.

You say you are a Christian, why are you upset at Republicans for preventing baby murder in Alabama?

If women don't want a baby, don't have sex. Common sense tells us that this is how babies are made.

I feel bad if a woman got pregnant because of rape. It's very rare though. But it's still an innocent baby. It's still not right to rip it apart with forceps.

Broad overreach indeed but Alabama proudly says Suffer Gals you gotta have your kid regardless!
