Contributing sentiments towards policy:

64% :"Even if the practice of abortion ended, given the availability of the pill, I think they'll say OK, good, mission accomplished.
47% : The final opinion, which upheld a Mississippi law banning abortion after 15 weeks, was an expected but nonetheless stunning end to 50 years of federal abortion rights for women throughout the country.
45% : The decision doesn't end rights granted in individual states, and abortion is still legal in California.
44% : The decision sends authority to regulate abortion back to the states.
44% : The right to abortion does not fall within this category."
44% : "The permissibility of abortion, and the limitations, upon it, are to be resolved like most important questions in our democracy: by citizens trying to persuade one another and then voting."
43% : We will steadfastly protect the right to abortion in California.
42% : "The Constitution does not confer a right to abortion; Roe v. Wade, 410 U.S. 113, and Planned Parenthood of Southeastern Pa. v. Casey, 505 U.S. 833 are overruled; the authority to regulate abortion is returned to the people and their elected representatives," the court wrote.
41% : The Constitution makes no reference to abortion, and no such right is implicitly protected by any constitutional provision, including the one on which the defenders of Roe and Casey now chiefly rely -- the Due Process Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment.
39% : "It is time to heed the Constitution and return the issue of abortion to the people's elected representatives," the decision continued.
39% : With Roe gone, Republicans will now charge full speed ahead with their plans to ban abortion nationwide, arrest doctors for offering reproductive care, and criminalize contraception, including in-vitro fertilization and post-miscarriage care.
35% : For many of them, the goal was ending abortion if they've ended abortion in their state, or at least passed laws," he said.
