If Roe v. Wade Is Overturned, What Does It Mean Around America?
Roe V wade, it seems to me, will be overturned, if not today, tomorrow. One of these days, this decision is going to come out. So practically speaking, apart from everything we're discussing, what does that mean around America? For example, in a place like Texas, will it be impossible to get a legal abortion in the state of Texas?

Apparently, people don't know Latin and recognize that that actually means baby in another language. Nonetheless, with it being said, the argument is that it's a fetus. However, when you get into the third trimester, there's no confusion. What is growing in the womb of the mother with a separate DNA, this entirely different body, a functioning body on all kinds of levels. And yet what we are seeing is there are right now some extremists in the pro abortion camp, who are going so far as to not only argue that abortion should be legal in the third trimester, there are actually arguing abortion should be legal after birth, which
