What’s up is it the ultimate goal of moving against the stomach? It may be surprising.
To the average viewer, the obvious answer is that anti -pregnancy activists want to overthrow. Roe v. Wade, the 1973 Supreme Court decided to keep the child in the country. Used to Roethe states have decided when and when the ban is required by law.
Opposition groups called for a halt to the protests. According to six conservative judges during the debate, the Supreme Court this year is expected to be too weak or throw away the first 50 years. Roe in support of Mississippi law prohibiting the procedure after 15 weeks of pregnancy.
Now, state legislatures are seeking to prepare for that kind of equality – by supporting laws that block the process (in some states), by introducing new ones, and Not by proving thatRoe the prohibitions or taboos may be restored if the Supreme Court acts. According to the Guttmacher Institute, a controversial think tank, 519 foreclosure bills have been filed in 41 states since Jan. 1 to March 15, with 82 expected to be banned from detention in 30 states.
Last week, the governor of West Virginia signed a law prohibiting abortion on the grounds of the child’s infirmity, and the governor of Idaho approved a bill that states that the Texas ban after six weeks. The Supreme Court cannot override Texas law, even though it is not clear Roeand until the judges are in power, it shall be permanent.
But it’s important to remember that upheaval Roe – and throwing decision -making decisions to the same states – is only a way to the final destiny of the opponents: to put an end to the end. “We want to see how every resignation goes, because we know there are two people at every resignation in the womb,” said Marjorie Dannenfelser, president of Susan B. Anthony List. , told KHN’s “What the Health?” in January.
But anti-abortion forces disagree on two main reasons: what the abortion means, and how quickly it will try to implement it.
In order to settle the first big idea, it is necessary to first agree on what is about to die, or, in other words, when life begins. The movement of “personhood”, which has led to unscrupulous elections in some states, speaks of the beginning of human life from the moment a sperm and an egg come together. to create a zygote, fertilization must signal the beginning of the barriers for human life. That is, in practice, it prohibits many forms of birth control and in vitro fertilization, and gives embryos property rights, among others.
Others believe that prohibiting forms of birth control they consider to be “abortifacients” (methods that they say are the cause of abortion, like most babies) intrauterine and “morning” fertilization), although in vitro fertilization is not prohibited. Others continue to support most forms of birth control but the mifepristone abortion pill, unlike the morning-after pill, works after a fetus has started to grow. in the stomach.
Second, and with a much larger population, there is no agreement on how quickly a non -development plan can be implemented, with the expectation that the Film Council will return that power to the states. This is where one of the best anti-abortion bills begins to deplete the oxygen of the struggle. In Missouri, for example, judges have passed bills banning abortion even in cases of ectopic pregnancy, which can not only be threatening but also life -threatening because pregnancy, and the criminal offense of assisting someone to go out of state to become pregnant. In Idaho, the new law will allow family members of some criminal offenders to sue doctors who perform beatings on victims.
The problem with these practices, say analysts from Guttmacher, is that “often they are not the main focus of anti-abortion politicians, but draw attention from other observers and bans are moving fast through some state legislatures.In addition, these forms of title retention can do other things, such as Texas-style bans or gestational age classes.
“There was a time when it felt like enacting unconstitutional laws was not American,” Emily Wales of Planned Parenthood Great Plains Votes said in a statement about a bill passed by the House of Representatives. Oklahoma on March 22 to ban all disputes. The strongest ban in the U.S. “The ban is intended to embarrass, embarrass, and create fear among vulnerable Oklahomans.”
Which raises the concept of the “Overton Window.” Joseph Overton, who helped run a federal policy office in Michigan, said it was the only policy in the public domain that was considered appropriate. However, by clicking on policies that are outside of that window – that is, at best – the window can be turned to create policies that are not politically intended.
Some believe this is what has been working with the law on murder in the past – anti -abortion forces, if unknown or for no reason, are demanding serious action. to early radical considerations – such as Texas’s ban on evictions after six weeks, enforced by civil lawsuits rather than state officials – kind of low in comparison.
Is the project running? Unable to tell. But things will be clearer when the Supreme Court issues its ruling, which is expected before July 4. Fire, of course.
