Overturning "Roe v Wade" will not end abortion in the US



Overturning "Roe v Wade" will not end abortion in the US.    Instead, overturning the opinion will send it back to state legislatures.    

My guess is that some states will write laws creating a right to an  abortion and others will not.      Most will pass abortion laws with certain restrictions, as they do in most countries.   

The two biggest consequences of overturning "Roe v Wade" will be political:

1) The issue will be debated openly in the political arena, from state legislatures to campaigns for office.    For example, Hispanic Democrats in Texas will be forced to explain to Hispanic women why they support abortion after 20 weeks; and,

2) Modern technology will show that there is a life or that abortion will end such a life.

Nevertheless, the biggest benefit of overturning "Roe v Wade" is that judicial confirmations will no longer be endless questions about abortion.    We will get back to a time when judicial nominations were about judicial temperament rather than "wedge" issues like abortion.
