    SCOTUS Handing Down Another HUGE Upset After Roe v Wade

    Published on

    The Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade has shifted the focus to the states’ decisions on the matter, as well as issues based on the invalidated statute.

    Current state stances on abortion are extremely diverse.

    According to the Guttmacher Institute and the Hill, twenty-two states have so-called trigger legislation or changes to their state constitutions that would restrict abortion as soon as possible after a Supreme Court verdict.

    The Hill observed:

    Some states have laws protecting abortion to the point of viability or throughout pregnancy, while others have abortion bans on the books. A range of states have laws set to activate if the federal law is overturned.

    Thirteen states, including Arkansas, Idaho, Mississippi, Missouri, North Dakota, Kentucky, Louisiana, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, and Wyoming, have immediate trigger laws that prohibit almost all abortions immediately if Roe is overturned: Arkansas, Idaho, Mississippi, Missouri, North Dakota, Kentucky, Louisiana, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, and Wyoming.

    Georgia, Idaho, Iowa, Michigan, South Carolina, Texas, West Virginia, Alabama, and Ohio also have anti-abortion legislation, but they do not take effect immediately.

    More on this story via The Republic Brief:

    Other states with pre-Roe bans include Wisconsin and Michigan.

    Some of the states that have an immediate trigger ban on abortions once Roe is overturned, like Arkansas, Mississippi and Oklahoma, also have pre-Roe abortions bans in place that are not currently enforced because of the 1973 ruling.

    Pre-Roe bans, according to Guttmacher, are laws enacted before 1973 that were never removed.

    The Hill continued that Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) signed into law a 15-week abortion ban in April, which will go into effect on July 1. Like the Mississippi law at issue in the Supreme Court case, the Florida law will ban the procedure after 15 weeks of pregnancy and doesn’t include exemptions for rape, incest or human trafficking.
