Contributing sentiments towards policy:

58% : It's not that I agreed with conventional pundit wisdom -- that Republican leaders would never 'let' Roe be overturned because anti-abortion sentiment is such an important driver for their electoral base.
57% : While reproductive rights organisations such as Planned Parenthood are celebrating the occasion, they are also preparing for the likelihood that they won't be celebrating its 50th anniversary, next year.
47% : However, states where abortion is likely to remain legal -- those on the West Coast and in New England, mostly, with a handful of outliers in the middle of the country -- "don't have the capacity, and abortion funds don't have the money" to provide for everyone needing abortion care.
45% : Now is the time to say, as loudly as possible, in the streets and in the media, that this is unacceptable -- that we expect uncompromising support from Democratic leaders for the right to abortion.
41% : Saturday 22 January marks 49 years since the US Supreme Court's landmark decision in Roe v Wade, the court case established a right to abortion across the US.
41% : Abortion has long since become inaccessible, in fact if not in law, in much of the US.
38% : Also, Republican-controlled states had managed to severely restrict access to abortion, rendering it effectively unavailable in many parts of the US, and the Supreme Court proved willing to weaken Roe's impact by upholding many of these restrictions.
