Yesterday, the Supreme Court upheld the federal ban of late-term abortions. While it concerns a very uncommon procedure, the ban is particularly frightening in that it does not provide any sort of provision for situations where the mother’s life may be at risk. This sets precedent whereby future cases could be decided using the lack of that provision in the existing ban as a footstool to introduce further restrictions. Now is the time to start making yourself heard! Even if Roe is never overturned, this Court could make it so hard for women to get abortions that it would be effectively the same thing.
