I’m very fearful that we’re going to lose Roe v. Wade. It’s becoming more of a polarized issue all the time. We have the Republicans very adamantly saying we should outlaw all abortion, but the Democrats are also so far to the right on this issue, saying things like “abortion should be extremely rare.” It’s not rare. It’s 40 percent of women in this country. And that needs to be acknowledged first.
We have fewer rights now than we did 20 years ago. It’s getting harder and harder for women to get abortions. Even if Roe doesn’t fall, we’re still losing providers, we’re still losing clinics; there are still laws being passed that are making it more difficult for women, and for the clinics themselves.
