Joel Schlosberg: Abortion, Out of the Political Trap

Whether or not Roe v. Wade is overturned, it will be headed the way of the Kansas-Nebraska Act.

The Supreme Court decision establishing a broad decriminalization of abortion throughout the United States has been unusually resilient for such a contentious subject.

On May 2, 2022 a leaked report showed that the Supreme Court of the United States would be overturning the 1973 Roe vs. Wade decision that affirmed that there is a Constitutional right for someone to obtain an abortion.

From ProChoice Libertarians

LIBERTARIAN PRINCIPLES AND THE CONSEQUENCES OF ABORTION PROHIBITION
