In wake of the Supreme Court overturning roe V wade, some colleges and universities are now trying to provide access to abortion medication themselves. Bernard college recently announced that next fall it'll start offering abortion pills on campus. Over in Massachusetts, the state passed a law requiring its public colleges to provide the medication and beginning this January. California's public universities will, too. But not its community colleges. As marketplaces, Stephanie Hughes reports, distributing the medication requires resources that some schools might not have. College age people account for about a third of all abortions in the U.S., according to the guttmacher institute, Martha Sanchez with the nonprofit advocacy group young Invincibles, says if students don't have access to abortion, they can suffer real economic and personal harm. It's just another barrier for them to complete their education in some cases. It is a mental health stressor, avoiding those harms is exactly why Massachusetts passed its law, so state representative Lindsay sabadosa, who sponsored it. The law requires public colleges to either provide abortion medication to students or create a plan for access. The reason that we went with both is that some of these schools are very tiny institutions. And they don't have health services that are open very often. Most colleges require students to have health insurance, but not all students have policies that cover abortion. In Massachusetts, they'd have to pay for the medication, and that cost can vary. Carrie and baker is a Professor of women and gender at Smith college, whose research informed the Massachusetts law. So the cost of the medication itself is about $54, providers charge, a wide range of fees, up to $600, according to the national women's health network, baker says by distributing abortion medication, state schools are changing. Students expectations of what a college or university can provide. This is raising the stakes on private colleges and students are saying, we want this too. Baker says when abortion medication isn't available on campus, students may have to travel hours
"guttmacher institute" Discussed on Opening Arguments
"A lot of folks rightly asked us, okay, you described the jurisprudence, but what happens once this passes? What is the real effect on real people on the ground? And the answer is it depends upon which state you're in. There are somewhat surprisingly, I guess. Only 17 states right now that explicitly protect abortion either throughout the pregnancy and that number is only four and the District of Columbia. So if you live in Colorado, New Jersey, Oregon, Vermont or Washington, D.C., those states have either constitutional or statutory protections for the right to an abortion throughout the pregnancy. So good, good. If you live in one of those 5 jurisdictions. There are 12 more states that protect the right of someone who is pregnant to undertake an abortion, pre viability before 2021, 22 weeks. Or after post viability, if necessary to protect the life of the mother. And that grouping together is what the guttmacher institute classifies as protecting abortion rights. And they are gu my institute is an invaluable resource on this. I'm going to link this chart from the show notes. And those 12 states are California, Connecticut, Delaware, Hawaii, Illinois, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Nevada, New York, Rhode Island, and Washington. So that's that forms the corpus of your states that have voted to protect abortion rights. We can add to that one jurisdiction. We talked about this in opening arguments episode two 76. The state of Kansas has held at the Supreme Court level that their state constitution independent of roe. Right. Protects the right of pregnant individuals to have an abortion. Of course, as a result of that, there was an August ballot initiative to amend the Kansas state constitution. So if you're in Kansas and you're thinking, what can I do? Organize against that ballot initiative is absolutely one of the things that was that the one weird trick one for saving portion rights at a state level. Okay, yeah, the OG. The OG on that. Yeah, absolutely. That case was called hodes and now serve versus Schmidt. And really articulates how state supreme courts can enshrine protection for rights that go independent of what a conservative Supreme Court is going to do. Those 17 plus a question mark states have robust protections for those who may become pregnant. The flip side are 24 additional jurisdictions in which one of a number of things is going to happen. And when we talked about the reliance interest, this is really what, again, pre Alito that reliance interest was meant to be. So for example, there are a bunch of states that have preexisting statutes that prohibit abortion. Some of these go back, all of them go back at least 50 years, right? Because they're pre roe versus wade. So they are 1972 or earlier, but some of these are statutes from the 1920s, the 1930s, there are a hundred years old, and the legislature hasn't done anything about it because, you know, roe V wade. Once roe V wade is gone, those will become good law again. And in many cases, these are criminal statutes. So you might ask, how valid is 1937 criminal statute in South Dakota and the answer is probably maybe there will be some argument, but when you think about the liberty fines, no refuge in a jurisprudence of doubt when you think about the question of who's reliance interests are about to be trampled on. Yeah, saying, oh, by the way, a law that has been enforced for a century might just come back. So is there no principle of law? And order? Yeah, if a thing was made unconstitutional and we just it's just this like clutter in the basement that nobody cared about or knew about, you don't rely on that as good law. There's no principle of law that tells you that. No, there isn't. So whenever anything is declared unconstitutional, you need to pass another law to also double down and say, okay, this has been we undo this law. It feels like nobody would do that. So again, let me clarify a little bit. When you challenge a statute directly and the Supreme Court strikes it down, that statute that was challenged becomes invalid. So you don't have to do anything else with respect to that particular law, but then the question is when the Supreme Court says, for example, abortion is roe V wade, says, you know, abortion is thus protected absolutely in the first trimester. Well, then you look at state laws that were not directly challenged that would prohibit abortion in that first trimester. And in some of the cases, you would bring a declaratory judgment action. Somebody would say, okay, hey, well let's bring a lawsuit and then the court would either overrule that statute or stay the enforcement of that statute. But in many cases it would just be the case where, okay, we know we're operating under roe versus wade. So we're not going to try and prosecute anybody under this particular criminal provision because what would the point be? And remember, federal courts are courts of limited jurisdiction. And so the fact that you haven't challenged that specific law means that there's nothing to invalidate it until you do. So that's the decision. The ones that were directly appealed all the way up. Yeah, those do go, by the wayside. There's another wrinkle to that. So for example, Texas SB 8 has a reaffirmation clause in it. Section two, this is the vigilante Bill, but it also includes section two that says, the legislature finds that the state of Texas never repealed either expressly or by implication, the state statutes enacted before the ruling in roe versus wade that prohibited criminalize abortion unless the mother's life is in danger. That, I think, means very clearly that the preexisting Texas statutes are going to spring back once this opinion is entered. And then sitting on top of that, and I deliberately use the word spring, are a number of laws that have been passed over the past decade that contain a contingent effective date. So for example, Arkansas Senate Bill one 49 bans abortion and it says section two contingent effective date. This act becomes effective on and after the certification of the Arkansas state attorney general that won the United States Supreme Court overrules in whole or in part the central holding of roe V wade reaffirmed by Planned Parenthood versus Casey. Thereby restoring to the state of Arkansas, the authority to prohibit abortion, or if there's a constitutional amendment that allows them to U.S. constitutional amendment, not that that was necessary. So in other words, a lot of states passed anticipatory legislation, particularly watching the composition of the Supreme Court watching it drift further and further to the right or probably I shouldn't say drift. We use that. I mean, watching it be loaded onto a rocket sled and accelerated to the right. Yeah. But so states did that. And if you add all of that together, you get 23 states that have either preexisting laws or these sort of springing contingent effective legislation. Plus Florida just passed a 15 week ban and the Florida legislature is monstrous right now. So it wouldn't surprise me if in between my doing the research and you listening to this show if somebody is introduced a bill to outlaw all abortions in Florida. But even discounting them, you have 23 jurisdictions in which criminal abortion statutes are about to either be rehabilitated back into existence or go into effect. Those are Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, Georgia, Idaho, Iowa, Kentucky, Louisiana, Michigan. So yeah, maybe get some grassroots organizing on the ground there? Mississippi, Missouri, North Carolina, North Carolina, again, a pretty purple state. North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, West Virginia, Wisconsin, another blue to purple state and Wyoming..
"guttmacher institute" Discussed on 51 Percent
"This week's fifty one percent gender law experts have said for years that we removing closer and closer to confrontation. I have been involved in conversations around potential limitations of abortion rights for years. And i've never been so scared. We discussed the new texas thaw effectively banning abortion in the state. And what it means for the future of roby wait. It's all coming up on fifty one percent. I was like one of those girls is seen in the movie. Polos repect then my sunglasses own. I won't sing without c. And shop did really good. You're listening to fifty one percent w amc production dedicated to women's issues and experiences. Thanks for tuning in. I'm jesse king. We're going to try to tackle a very sensitive subject today. And if you've listened to the news at all over the past couple of weeks. You know where i'm headed on september first texas enacted a total of six hundred sixty six laws among them texas thaw. Sp eight currently the most restrictive law on abortion in the country. The texas heartbe act effectively bans abortion at six weeks into pregnancy the point at which an embryonic or fetal heartbeat can be detected now abortion rates are already at historically low levels in the us according to the latest numbers from the guttmacher institute in twenty seventeen. The country saw its lowest abortion rates. Since roe v wade in nineteen seventy-three at thirteen point five abortions per one thousand women ages fifteen through forty four however guttmacher estimates that as of twenty nineteen fifty eight percent of reproductive aged. Women live in states hostile to abortion rights. In twenty twenty one alone states have enacted at least ninety seven abortion restrictions the green lights being the krona virus pandemic and the growing conservative majority on the supreme court which is expected to take up a mississippi case. That could overturn roe. V wade by the end of the year again texas law. Sba is even more restrictive than the mississippi law in question and it has its own elements that are making abortion providers. Very nervous planned. Parenthood and other groups tried and failed to keep the law from going into effect by suing over the summer. During the su- i spoke with shelly. Hagan the president of upper hudson planned parenthood in new york. I mean i'm an optimistic person. Generally and i have been involved in the conversations around potential limitations of abortion rights for years. And i've never been so scared. Whatever happens we've got this case. And then we have the case going to the supreme court all happening in the fall. And there's a very real possibility that by this time next year we're going to be looking at whole swaths of the country that have no access to abortion. What's very different about sba. And why. I think it's causing such a chill in the abortion rights world is that it includes what's called a public cause of action. Typically these laws come out. We get an injunction. There clearly unconstitutional under roe. There's no question about that. And they go away but because of this public cause of action. There's no one to sue one Article i read a an attorney in texas said. At essentially this law deputises every texan as an attorney general of their own. It's a really slippery slope for the law outside of abortion access. It's a slippery slope to put the enforcement of law completely in the public's hands and it is very widespread in terms of who could affect so the general public is allowed to sue under the law. But who can they sue. In what instances sure so what the law says and i brought this down so that i can remember Defendants can include anyone who is seen to aid or abet the access to abortion so that can be doctors nurses receptionists and a health centre administrators for a health centre parents who drive their child to a clinic partners who bring their partner to a clinic. A friend who may loan them the money and then it can go further. It can also sue attorneys who have defended abortion access. And who can do. The suing is somebody who standing outside of the health center as a protester. Somebody who over. Here's a conversation between two people in a cafe and talking about going in to get an abortion your boyfriend's mom and then this is where it gets really frightening for women especially women who are in abusive situations it could be their partner and then what they can sue for is equally as sort of staggering inside the long because it's very structured is they can sue for ten thousand dollars and their attorney fees and that would be the responsibility of the defendant to pay so it's essentially a bounty. It's like you get ten thousand dollars if you do this. So let's talk a little bit about how this law might affect planned parenthood in texas or in general. I mean how. Many abortion providers are there in texas. I don't know the exact number. I know that it is decreasing all the time. There have been bands in texas. They banned abortion in texas early in the pandemic abortion was not considered essential services and they were not allowed to provide abortion during cova. Texas also has very extreme what they call trap laws which are architectural requirements in order to provide abortion so they have to essentially built like mini operating suites. The standard is so far and beyond what is actually necessary for safe patient care but it cost millions of dollars to build one of these centers. So there's fewer and fewer providers in texas all the time the chilling effect. It's having on them right now. They're staff is scared to death. People who are working the receptionist desk at a health center. Who maybe you're making fifteen dollars an hour. They can't afford to be sued for ten thousand dollars. They can't afford the legal costs of even defending themselves. Should they win. They're having to make the decision between a job. They love and the sort of like looming risk that they could be sued at any time by anybody which is just an untenable place to put staff members so the clinics themselves are really suffering right now with a large amount of people leaving their jobs and turnover and also just real anxiety among the staff. Now this is a debate. That's been going on long before. I was born but i feel like i'm hearing it more and more now. I'm not sure if that's because i'm consuming more news now or if it's something that's really ramping up in the last decade or so are we seeing more and more of these restrictions recently absolutely every year there's more and more in every state we even have anti-choice legislation introduced in new york. It just doesn't go anywhere you know. It's it's almost like a red badge for people who want to appeal to the far right that they have a list of these pieces of legislation that they've put forward whether or not they win. It's a real political tool. Only real people are trapped in the middle of that. I totally agree with you. I feel.

"They're desperate and they should be desperate because we are past culturally. We are past this point in our culture where abortion should be acceptable. Not ever should have been to begin with. But we're past the point that all of the original pro-abortion arguments could ever hold water past the point where there's a question of scientifically when a life begins. We're past the point of people being confused about whether it's about the woman's body whether it's about the baby's body we're past the point of what it means to be pro-life whether you have to Support essentially socialist policy agenda items in order to call yourself pro-life. We're past the point where we as a nation should accept the fact that every year almost a million unborn babies are slaughtered just for mothers convenience again. All of the talking points had been debunked. We know it's not the majority of abortions. The vast vast majority of abortions are not about rape incest life of the mother even late term abortions or not about fetal abnormalities. If you do the studies if you look at the polling if you look at the surveys. It's all about convenience now that being said we should be tremendously compassionate. Of course two women that find themselves in this position whether they didn't intend to be pregnant whether they're worried about how to make it work whether they're being pressured by a partner to abort the baby we should be compassionate. And that's pro-lifers. We should support these women and help them and give them the resources and the love and the care that they need but none of that takes away from the heart of the matter is what i like to call it on. Ironically given given what the pro-abortion activists are talking about this week but we we should be compassionate but it doesn't take away from the humanity of that child in the heart of the matter is that unborn child scientifically morally ethically and yes legally is an independent individual person with dna separate from the mother and therefore be protected under the law. Just like you alley or like me get. The guttmacher institute. Is the research arm of planned. Parenthood tied and according to their own reporting fewer than less than one percents of abortions are due to rape.

"Based instead on a fiction into our bodies work even the way. These laws are framed as so called heartbeat bills restricting abortion. When there's a fetal heartbeat are distortions about the reality of pregnancy the quote feel heartbeat. Talking point is just misinformation intended to deceive and even the press false for by repeating it at six weeks field development. There is no heart to have a heartbeat. Doctors say the sound that republican lawmakers are inaccurately calling a heartbeat is actually just the motion of electrical pulse in a growth known as the fetal pole but republican lawmakers that using this inaccurate language mix an early stage. Abortion seemed like a shameful moral choice rather than just a commonplace medical procedure which is why they use deceptive language in the first place so this law is definitely based on complete fictions and lies about our bodies and how they work but ten isn't even the worst part just who enforces this law. The state the government ono much worse any private citizen. Let me have another way. Any random asshole. This law allows private individuals to sue abortion providers. Or anyone who assists in providing an abortion for up to ten thousand dollars. It doesn't matter if the person suing as an abusive acts a rapist or just some random stranger with no connection to the person getting an abortion whatsoever it essentially creates a bounty for abortion providers or people who assistant abortions and. Yeah it could even be used to sue an uber driver who drives you to an abortion appointment. There's already a tip line website asking people to turn people they suspect of aiding abortions. So yes things are pretty bad but honestly this is nothing new. The impact choice movement has always use lies and distortions to pass laws restricting abortion access. Now why do they do this. Well it's because most people actually support abortion access so anti choice advocates. They have to turn to lies in order to sway the public. But y'all this is not just about texas. We've seen more laws restricting abortion access this year in twenty twenty one than any other previous year. This is according to a study by the guttmacher institute. It's just part of a national agenda and abortion access in this country. This texas law sets a dangerous legal precedent and could create a path for other states to make abortions unattainable the people who need them and we expect to see similar bills introduced in states across the country. And honestly it's not even really just about abortion from laws attacking trans-youth immigrants and queer folks. This is yet another a series of legislation fueled by distortion and lies. The power of lies and disinformation was on full display earlier this year when states were passing laws rolling back voting rights in response to the complete fiction at the two thousand twenty election results were rigged because too many black and brown folks voted. Now we told you about this earlier this year in an interview. With noah changa georgia based journalist about how these attacks are not just about voting or abortion but rather a coordinated network of tax on marginalized people and our democracy. So let's revisit. What happens and who gets harmed when disinformation is codified.

"A little bit of a blip seemed like time while this happening but what he would have preferred now. The situation is different. And i think that that has made laws like these near-total bans on abortion a lot. More appealing to activists and there's also a real grassroots populist appeal to something like this citizen driven lawsuit based approach this idea of ordinary citizens not politicians not elites being responsible for taking control of what people in the pro-life movement really see as this huge moral issue. And so i think that's one of the reasons also that legislation like this has become more appealing. Certainly there are still some in the pro-life movement who want a more incremental strategy and there's been more tension between those two sides of the movement since it seemed clear that like hey overturning roe might actually be something that's possible but it has to be something driving what's happening on the political side to that. The folks who really want fast action. They don't just want fifteen week abortion ban. They want six week abortion ban. they want fetal person hood. You know those people really feel like hey. We're in place in this country where we might be able to get that. So let's do it on that. Note the guttmacher institute which advocates for abortion rights has been tracking the number of laws whether it's texas mississippi's that have cropped up in the past year and since nineteen seventy-three so when roh was first enacted 2021 here has seen the most abortion restrictions ninety and this was as of july i already enacted here in twenty twenty one so alex was studying the landscape for what it's looked like in texas not only on abortion but number of conservative issues. And i think what. Amelia head on about this being a populist movement particularly and how this texas law was framed about citizens regulating citizens and pushing the boundaries of the types of arguments. We're seeing in front of the court seems to not only be a trend that other states to be clear of not pushed forward what texas has. But i'm curious will other states try. I realized that every legislatures currently in session. But i wouldn't be surprised if depending on how things develop here in texas if more states don't follow suit and then the second thing is why limit to abortion depending on how the courts to rule on this current law. You could see a lot of different controversial issues trying to follow it for its playbook so essentially you're saying for hot button social issues. Instead of having a state court system enforce those laws you have individuals enforcers also on anything ranging from religious liberty to transgender issues or gay issues or it may be immigration have individuals be the people who sue civil court and keep the state criminal courts out of it if it turns out that this is a path that seems like it would be successful and frankly the supreme court's order even though it was very short and not that detail it may be enough for some states to feel like they can go ahead with it when they're legislatures are back in session. I would say also you know red states embrace this kind of strategy blue states are going to do the same thing too and they might try to force a confrontation with the supreme court. So frankly i will be honest..

"In a lot of ways. You know again. Like i was preparing to come out so i had a timeline okay. Name was coming back on this day. And we're gonna do this and like and then it didn't happen. I had to say okay like it's in everybody's best interest in my daughter's not with me. And i guess i'm calling the triumph because it was a really hard decision like because i miss her because i feel guilty about being separated from her even though it was for this very serious reason because i feel guilty for getting it which may be away for my daughter. You know like just all the reasons that like. I know the right thing to do. You know and i really knows the right thing to do. When even my mom agreed as opposed to that usual like pause and her voice she does. Or i make mention to any additional time that my daughter's spinning away for me because her heart she's still full fit euro fifty fifty custody while you are a mad woman. You know like it's the it's the it's not even unspoken thing between my mom. And i it's me in the world right like that's how i feel like i. No one has ever said anything to me. No one has ever looked at me. You know mom kinda looking me crazy when it first happened. But i know so much of it as me feeling bad for not being the one hundred percent mom you know like for not being the full time mom even though like circumstantially. We're not there. We're not together. We've agreed parent that means that at least some of her time was gonna be elsewhere right. You know like we did less than fifty and once her father proposed fifty agreed that that was fair. You know and it made sense and it's worked thus far but like there's always that little bit of gilles about that so now it was like not only. Do you routinely not have your baby now. You had to not have your baby during this time where she's stuck in the house and she said and she's bored so i'm i'm giving myself a triumph for that just because it was a very hard thing to do and i very easily could have done. What would have been very selfish. What might have put her in other people at risk and transported her and brought her over here. But i didn't and maybe i shouldn't give myself any credit for doing what was like an obvious ray thing to do but i'm reminded that in the pursuit of being a good mom like doing the obvious right thing doesn't always feel the obvious right thing. Well i also think your triumph is that you have recognized that the part of the challenge of making the right decision was about something much deeper than this moment and cove it and quarantine which like feels like really enlightened parenting move here is that like you are being self reflective and being like this is tapping into a bigger thing for me that i deal with all the time that seems like a huge triumph. Right really thank you. I think modeling. You know all of this tonight. Ema is such a good triumph and and Because in so many ways what you did is teach her like as a parent. We have to make hard choices in which. I don't always get to put my needs. I and in this case. Like i didn't even necessarily put your needs. I right like put the community needs. Because you are in a safe place where you are safe and i put trust in my co parents and this is the best thing for us but also i think just showing her like that. Sometimes life throws us things that we don't want you know. Hey we were planning for this reunification and this other thing happened like this is just how this turned out. I can so relate though to to those feelings. Because i i mean we talk about this a lot like that mom guilt about everything and adjust about like. How am i not enough. And i agree with courtney that it's it's amazing how self reflective you can be to say like how much of that is us and how much of that you know is actually there. But i i think it's a huge triumph. You have made the best out of a really unfair and terrible situation because you're vaccinated and you're you've done everything like how many sacrifices have you made during this pandemic right and you never thought that. If you had to be quarantined it would be with you and naima in separate places. That sucks that totally sucks and also like you said there elements of it. Don't sexy did not stuck. And i feel so guilty. I feel guilty about that of the fifty percent. Parenting thing right is like a meta reflection of that. Where like it sucks. And it doesn't second some ways because you get agency and like self development elizabeth. And i do. Who have our kids theoretically one hundred percent. I don't you know like are we. Actually there percent of you know like i just think it's so mad at the whole thing it really is. It's been just an interesting. It's been an interesting journey. And you know and i've communicated a lot of this to her and you know not necessarily about my anxiety or whatever but just like Elizabeth was saying good. Sometimes we have to make difficult decisions and like desert. Don't think that because it's not what you want it that it was what i wanted. You know like that. Because i was involved in the decision that lake that i'm happier okay. With this right yeah. Absence makes the heart grow fonder right absolutely until she's smart about something and then then you'll be like wait a minute right. I can't wait to hear about your reunification like i.

"The most significant legal challenge to abortion in recent memory. We've just seen the most devastating arguments levelled in the public square against it as well for the colson center. I'm john stonestreet. This is break point last thursday. Two months after the supreme court agreed to hear what could be the most significant challenge to roe v wade to date mississippi general. Lynn fitch submitted a brief in it. She clarified how this case could. Impact the abortion debate quote under the constitution may state prohibit elective abortion before viability. Yes why because nothing. In constitutional text structure. History or tradition supports a right to abortion. End quote now. This case goes back to two thousand eighteen when the mississippi legislature pass. What's called the station age. Act which limited abortion after fifteen weeks to only those pregnancies involving health emergencies or fetal abnormalities and response the state's only abortion clinic located in jackson sued and won in federal district court when the state lost their appeal at the fifth circuit attorney general fitch brought the case to the supreme court as a challenge to the constitutionality of abortion on demand and the definition of viability. That's been in place since roe. V wade was decided back in nineteen. Seventy three previous attempts of states especially recent ones to limit or ban abortions have been squelched at the supreme court however according to fitch. Mississippi's case doesn't rest on legal technicalities. She made it clear that mississippi's appeal is calling into question the constitutionality of abortion as a whole. Now it's notable after all the other recent decisions that the supreme court decided to take this another abortion rights case and of course the court is thought to have a pro-life majority on the other hand this is also proven to be a court. That seems allergic to overturning precedent. That's precisely with the mississippi attorney. General's asking it to do. Here's how she put it quote row and planned parenthood versus casey are thus at odds with the straightforward constitutionally grounded answer to the question presented so the question becomes whether this court should overrule those decisions. It should end quote now in her. Brief fitch offered clear arguments as to why after talking about the legal mess that rohan casey created. The attorney general went on to explain. Just how out of touch. Us abortion law is with the rest of the world. she then described with the legislature had considered in terms of fetal development including than an unborn child's heart begins beating at five to six weeks. Just station begins moving at eight weeks. And all basic physiological functions. Our president about nine weeks and mississippi lawmakers have a legal interest in abortion restrictions. Fitch argued because the state has interest in three things protecting the life of the unborn protecting the wellbeing of women and protecting the integrity of the medical profession specifically she detailed how abortions after fifteen weeks often utilized the barbaric dilation and evacuation procedures in which quote surgical instruments crush tear the unborn child apart before removing the pieces of the dead child from the womb. Now this procedure declares fitch can only be called barbaric now not only did fish call this procedure barbaric the mississippi legislature. Did it's dangerous for women. It's deadly for children and it's quote demeaning to the medical profession now. All of this is significant in the larger legal context as well. According to the guttmacher institute over thirteen hundred related. laws have been signed since roe was enacted in nineteen seventy-three over five hundred had been signed in just the last decade and while many have been struck down in the courts the pace and the seriousness of these abortion restrictions is picking up and the story of the abolition of slavery suggests. This could be part of the shift and lawn. Culture that many have long prayed for and worked towards and great britain. The work of thomas. Clark's singer cya. Wedgewood william wilberforce. Hannah more and others eventually bore fruit as the slave trade move from being unquestionable in seventeen eighty seven to largely unthinkable by eighteen. Thirty three it wasn't just law that led to this shift but it wouldn't have been done without law the brief by attorney general and fitch is the clearest take-down of abortion by a lawmaker to date. That's a win in and of itself her very words and approach to this case or a testament to the years of work by pro-life academics pro-life apologised in pro-life activist. And that's all good news at the same time. It's far from clear what the supreme court will do. Even if they do overturn precedent and strike down row. There's a growing momentum for congress to act to replace it. This would make the midterm elections even more important given the full on embrace of abortion on demand for any reason platform of the democratic party. At the very least overturning roe would return abortion law to individual states and that means that our job to make abortion not only legal but unthinkable to our friends and our neighbors and to care for the vulnerable women and children around us only continues in schools and churches in neighborhoods from the state house to your house for the cost incentive.

"And it actually becomes a slippery slope, Charlie, because if you say well on after not hear this on campus some, he'll say, Well, I don't think life begins until 21 weeks and somebody else will say, I think life begins at 18 weeks. I'm like, Well, who's to say the arbitrary, absolutely arbiter and we know Once again looking at human history that becomes a very slippery slope. When you start beaming when other people's lives or they're worth or value begins. We have an objective belief in our country when life ends, but not when life begins, right. The significance of that is a million abortions a year. How many sensor overseas Wait. It's over. 60 million aboard 60 Million of world We actually we actually do not know perfect number's probably because we did not have a national abortion reporting requirement.

The second President, Planned Parenthood, and that's the best numbers we can get as from the pro abortion industry is amazing about the Guttmacher Institute. When you go to their website, they admit that 98% plus of all abortions are for no reason. Yeah, I actually unlike you. I think the only reason should be life of the mother. And we could talk about how rare that actually is speaking like it's more figure than it is. And I've come under a lot of heat for that position, but that's my position.

"Young. I'm Peter O'Dowd. This is here. And now today, advocates for abortion rights are wondering about the future of Roe v. Wade. That landmark 1973 ruling will be put to a test after the Supreme Court decided That in its next term, it will here in abortion case out of Mississippi. It will be the first abortion case to come before the courts. News 6 to 3 Conservative majority. Joining us Now by Skype is Mary Ziegler. She's a legal historian and a professor of law at Florida State University. Mary Welcome. Thanks for having me. Sure. So this case, it's a challenge to a Mississippi law that would ban almost all abortions. After 15 weeks of pregnancy, it hinges on the question of just station of I ability. Do you explain what that means and why it's significant in this case. Sure so viability in a nutshell. Is that point in pregnancy when survival is possible outside of the womb, So that's most typically around the 24th week, although sometimes with her like medical efforts, survival is possible as early as the 22nd week. What is significant is because ever since 1973. The Supreme Court has said that states may no not ban on abortion before viability, and that's been kind of a cornerstone of the court's abortion rights. Juris prudence Now Mississippi's law, which bans abortion, it 15 weeks, obviously does so well before viability, and that's the point in a way because Mississippi wants to force the court. Either to reverse Roe v. Wade entirely, or at least to get rid of viability as the point at which abortion dancer possible, Okay, and that's why supporters of abortion rights and opponents are looking at this case. As a potential milestone, and that it could mean the end of Roe v. Wade. Do you think it could be that historic? Absolutely. I think there's no reason the court would have taken this case unless it either wants to reverse Roe or reverse part of road right. There's literally no way you can uphold this Mississippi law without at least rewriting the rules or rewriting what Rose stands for Andre. Certainly, if the court is willing to go that far, there's no reason to think they'll stop there. Even if this is not the case that returns row, I think the writing is on the wall. Down the road. And so what are the range of options that we could be looking at? Either the court could overturn Roe or somehow significantly limited exactly? Yes. So in the past in 1992, the court got rid of a big parts of what road had stood for basically the rules that would apply to determine the constitutionality of abortion laws. Kept what the court framed as the sort of essential building so grow and there were two of those one that there was a right to choose abortion into that that right applies before viability, So it's possible that the court could say actually, there's only one essential holding, and that's that There's a right to choose abortion. But this whole viability thing is a side note that we can get rid of. That would still be consequential, of course, because if viability is not the dividing line, it's not clear. What is right. Is it six weeks and pregnancy is some red states have proposed in Promoting heartbeat laws. Is it fetal pain? Which Mississippi argues, is there? No, I meant right. Can states just ban abortion throughout pregnancy? We just don't know what the court will do if I ability is gone, so it kind of will open a Pandora's box. Even if, in theory, the court has preserved some aspect of Robie Wade And this would be the first abortion case to come before Justice Amy Cockney Barrett, the conservatives on this court of also shown signs that they're willing to overturn precedent. What is the new makeup of the court mean for this case? One thing it means is that we have certainly have a new swing Justice Last summer, the court's first abortion case with a conservative majority made it seem as if Chief Justice John Roberts would be that swing vote, and Roberts at least last summer, seemed reluctant to Turn his back too quickly on the Supreme Court's precedents. But if the court is taking this case, there's reason to believe that either buried or Cavanaugh, we're both will be willing to go at a quicker clip and rolling back abortion rights than Roberts might have been prepared to do. It's safe to say if you're a supporter of abortion rights, you're feeling nervous today. Absolutely. I mean, I think I'm probably a little bit shocked because I mean, the Supreme Court has sat on this case since September of last year. And so I think many of us were expecting the court not to take this case and that we would maybe getting angry. Dissenting opinion from Clarence Thomas. Complaining about their kicking the can down the road. So the fact that the court not only agreed to take this face but took up such an explosive question so quickly will definitely make supporters of the working rights feel pretty uncomfortable. Today. 11 States have trigger bands in place. Now that means abortions will instantly Be outlawed if the court overturns Roe, so big picture. What do abortion rights look like in this country? If that happens, according to the Guttmacher Institute, another researchers, we estimate that about half the states would ban all our most abortions. April we're gone and one way or another, either through trigger laws or other statutes. There would be, of course, progressive states like Massachusetts that would expand access to abortion and probably make it easier to the extent possible for people from out of state to access abortion. And then there would be battleground states like Florida and Pennsylvania, where there would be lots of money and lots of energy invested to determine what abortion policy looks like. Of course, even in the Supreme Court, it wouldn't be over because the endgame for abortion opponents has never been allowing states to ban abortion because, of course, if you are a rightto life supporter, you think that life begins at conception and abortion is murder. If it's happening in Massachusetts or California as much as if it's happening in Alabama, so I would expect Even in the Supreme Court that you would see abortion opponents coming back and saying abortion itself is unconstitutional and therefore cannot be allowed anywhere. In short, the fight will continue, no matter what we see, and the kind of patchwork from state to state on the differences between states will become even sugar.

"Well, this is gonna be a narrowly focused case with very broad implications. The justices have said they would focus particularly on one really crucial question, which is whether or not banning abortion before fetal viability is constitutional. Nancy Northup leads the Center for Reproductive Rights, which is challenging this Mississippi law. The court cannot uphold this law in Mississippi without overturning rose core holding, and that core holding that every pregnant person has the right to decide whether to continue their pregnancy prior to viability that has been reaffirmed again and again and again and again. So generally under current president states have more latitude to restrict abortion later in pregnancy, not as much earlier on when a fetus couldn't live outside of a woman's body. What counts is fetal viability is a little murky. It's shifted earlier and earlier with advances in medicine. But Steve this 15 week Ban in Mississippi, which advocates acknowledge was designed specifically to challenge these presidents. It falls before fetal viability by any measure, and also this will be the first major abortion case as you alluded to, with Justice Amy Cockney Barrett on the bench. Her presence, of course, seems to tilt the court further to the right listening to Nina Totenberg. I get the impression that Mississippi would not be the on Lee State with an interest in this case. Not at all. Everyone expects that if the court upholds this law, other states, other conservative leaning states will rush to pass similar laws. It's unclear how broad the ruling could be, or to what degree the court would allow states to restrict abortion. But it's clear there would be national implications. Shannon Brewer is the director at the Jackson Women's Health Organization, the only abortion clinic in Mississippi and a plaintiff in this case, here's what she said. I know that this is gonna be a devastating impact. If this goes through for women, not he only here in Mississippi, but everywhere. This is gonna affect half of the United States. What she's referring to. There is the center for Reproductive Rights estimates that if Roe v. Wade were overturned about 20 states would likely ban abortion altogether. In short order. I guess we should be clear Sarah McCammon, We don't have a ruling. At this point. We have an agreement to hear a case we think of these issues is sort of thumbs up. Thumbs down. Yes, no abortion, upper down, But that's not the way these rulings often are. They could be extremely complex. They could be very narrowly drawn. We don't actually know what the court majority would necessarily do. But here Is the case before the court and they've decided there's something they want to consider. What are you hearing from abortion rights opponents. Well, of course, they're celebrating the court's decision to take the case. Abortion rights advocates and hope that the court would just rejected out of hand and defer to lower courts have said this kind of law is unconstitutional. But of course, overturning Roe has been a longstanding goal and a political rallying cry for social conservatives for decades, and they believe they're closer than ever to doing that. Eric Scheidler with the Pro Life Action League says he hopes this could just be a first step. Of Mississippi's laws upheld and we see you know Red states and acting similar legislation. They're gonna go fire. Some of them are going to shoot for maybe a 12 week ban. There's a vast landscape of possibility and I'll be excited to see how things play out next year when we finally get a ruling. And he says, you know, lawmakers and conservative states will be looking very closely at how the court rules and trying to pass similar laws, depending on what the court says they can do well, what is happening in state legislatures right now when it comes to abortion rights? There are many other anti abortion laws and proposals working their way both through state legislatures and through the courts. Many of those ban abortion or would ban abortion earlier than 15 weeks. Abortion rights opponents would like to see the court review some of those earlier abortion land bands that could allow even deeper abortion restrictions in the future. We know from the Guttmacher Institute, which supports abortion rights that state legislatures just this year's David passed hundreds of abortion restrictions on so we're likely to see more of these kinds of battles in the coming months and years.

"Journalist and author Nell Frizzell has been wrestling with the same decision. A lot of couples have been weighing over the last 14 months, whether or not to have a child trumpet against 70 of life, which is presumably what everyone has gone through in the last year. It is very hard then. Take a step to bring a new person into that very uncertain future. And you know the idea of going into appointment in a hospital or the idea off Having to use sort of medical services seems like something I'd rather not be doing at the moment. That struggle is the subject of Brazil's new book, The Panic, Years, dates, Doubts and the mother of all decisions, Me and my cotton. That way we have a son. I would love to have another baby, but we have decided that now. We're not going to possibly forever, but certainly not for at least another year because it just feels like a very uncertain on scary time to be getting pregnant. I do think that over the last 12 months There has been a real reckoning with things like the climate crisis on social injustice and financial hardship on I think once you have confronted those issues head on It may change the way you feel about having a baby forever. Whether it has a long term effect for a lot of people is anyone's guess. But in the short run covert 19 has had a profound effect on birth rates in the United States. Nationwide figures for babies conceived after the start of the pandemic show a dramatic covert baby bust. December, births were down by 8% compared to the year before the year over year change in December was quite dramatic, and for the year overall births were down between three and 4%, which is considering the pandemic didn't start until part way through the year. That's quite dramatic, and if you go back to look at previous one year changes, you have to go back to the end of the baby boom. To see a drop in fertility that large. Dr Philip Cohen, professor of sociology at the University of Maryland, says a drop in the birth rate is no surprise. But experts say the number of births in the U. S may plummet as a result of the pandemic by 300,000. In just one year, we would expect the birth rate to decline during really any kind of crisis. And economic crisis in particular, because it affects people's planning and how they're feeling secure about the future. And so on. However, what was really unique about the pandemic was how rapidly the economic crisis hit and the way it was connected with the health crisis. They're concerned about their job, or they lost their job or their housing situation is up in the air, or they have health problems are a family member's health problems that kids are home. All the things that have been going on would lead a lot. Out of people to decide. This is not the right year, so we definitely would expect to see a drop in births after a crisis like this, But this was just very sharp. But the pandemic drop is even more than it appears. It's on top of a decline that we've already been experiencing since the crash of 2008 making for a total decline in the birth rate of 19% since then. U. S census figures released a few weeks ago confirm it between 2010 and 2020. America's population increased by the slowest rate since the Great Depression. You think of that decline in birth brace as key slope. Going downward. You now have this Coben 19 pandemics That's like an avalanche coming down that slope. Russian birth bridge faster and farther down. Dr. Laura Lindbergh is principal research scientist at the Guttmacher Institute. What we know about the 2008 recession is that fertility declined. Because of the economic downturn, and in fact, there's some wrong research showing that in geographic settings were unemployment rates were higher. The birthrate Bellmore so a strong link between economic and fertility rates. When we think about the pandemic, there's so much going on here. We have an economic recession, people losing their jobs, losing health insurance. We have the social destruction of the pandemic. Whether that the need for social distance thing Children, schools being closed and home schooling job just thing from commuting into work to staying at home. All the social change happens around the pandemic. And then, of course, it's a health crisis. Where people have either been fearful of getting sick or have gotten sick. And, of course, the mortality associated with that enormous numbers of Americans have lost someone in their family due to this pandemic. And the compounding impact of that loss of family life really needs to be considered. Surveys of women during the pandemic, confirm that they've had second thoughts about bringing a child into an unsure world. For example, the Guttmacher Institute survey a year ago early in the pandemic, We interviewed a national sample of women and ask them. Because of the coded 19 pandemic. If you change your plans to have Children, either the number or the timing and about a third of women said that because of the pandemic, they either wanted to have fewer Children or they wanted to delay having Children. This interest in delaying or reducing fertility was larger among women who already faced challenges in the U. S. So we found that black and Hispanic women were more Leslie than white women to report Lifting fertility preferences because of the pandemic. Lower income women were more likely than higher income women to report that they wanted to delay or reduce their fertility. Deciding against having a baby is one thing. But Cohen believes the pandemic has also affected the birth right among people who aren't planning their fertility in the United States more than in most other Rich countries. Anyway, We have a fairly high proportion of births that are less than consciously planned that are accidental or semi accidental or not completely planned. And I think those air probably Also down this last year because people are meeting less and socializing less and spending less time together with people that they're not living with. So I would expect. You know, it's too early to tell in the research, but I would expect that both the planned and unplanned births would be contributing to this big decline. We've seen That flies in the face of good old conventional wisdom that unplanned births might increase. In a time when couples are locked together in close quarters that more togetherness means more babies. You might call that conventional wisdom. It's probably more I would call come in mythology. I do think you know if you had a short term Occasion where everybody was stuck home for a week, and it wasn't a disaster. Then I think you might actually see a little spike in births nine months later, but we did not have that situation. So we had people who were stuck home in voluntarily in a condition of uncertainty with reduced privacy because their family members were home. We have a lot of young adults who were living unexpectedly living with their parents. So even if there were some or cuddle, time and some more Either accidental or planned, exuberant pregnancies. I think that would just be dwarfed by the downside, Cohen says. We haven't hit the bottom of the baby bust. Yet. The pandemic was still going full force last August when today's newborns were conceived, But some experts say eventually we might see a little bit of a baby bump. As some couples try to make up for lost time. Then you have to start looking at the age of the people who are affected. So like after the big recession in 2009, we saw birth rates for older women so women in their late thirties or early forties. Their birth rates are not as effective because they're more driven by the clock. So to speak, and don't want to put things off for a year or so younger people much more likely to hold off for a year or two, and then they have some kind of rebound. I think we never really saw that rebound after the what we used to call the great recession in 2009 in birth rates, so birthrates fell and they never really came back. And so I think The real question is going to be what happens with the economy. If it comes roaring back then I would expect to see if substantial rebound in many ways we may want to think of the pandemic as having hit the pause button. People's pra Toda And the question is, will they take their finger off that button? Once the world returns to a little more of normal? The effects of the baby bust could be far reaching in education and the job market over the next few years, the next generation and even beyond, Cohen says, in five years, we'll see if you were kindergartners and on up the grades as they go through school. When they reached their late teens and early twenties, there will be fewer of them to compete for jobs. It's a sudden drop, and it bounces back then you have, you know an interesting experience for cohort of people that are part of a small group. Things didn't go well for them. They may find suddenly there in smaller classes because the capacity is built up. Before they get there. You know, they may find that they're in a good position in the job market in 20 years or 18 years when they get out of school, and all of a sudden there's a drop in the number of people applying for jobs. If it's a more prolonged decline and birth rates continue to go down or stay very low that eventually it does pose some challenges, as it becomes sort of part of the structure of our population that we're growing slowly and eventually a population would start to decline. That's the path we're on. Now. Their current fertility rate is at 1.6, and that's below replacement rate. That's when an ongoing baby bust will pose problems for the labor market and the tax base.

"guttmacher institute" Discussed on KCRW
"Are you ready for a bedtime story in the great green room? All done? We just started. Yeah, I know. It's probably not bedtime for you, but just go with it for right now. Lindsay Howard is reading to her 15 month old daughter Evey right now. Evey is an only child. But that wasn't always the plan. Our plan was so we had these grand plans. My friend from New York was going to get married in Italy in September of last year. So we were like, OK, we're gonna go on vacation. We're going to travel around Europe a little bit like this will be the perfect time to start when she turned one year to start thinking about trying again. Well, and you know what happens to grand plans that were made in 2020. The wedding was canceled. Howard and her husband both work in health care, and they're nervous about their heightened risk of contracting the coronavirus. So they've decided to hold off on trying for another kid. In this unprecedented year that we've had their story is actually pretty predictable. The U. S. Is expected to welcome a half million fewer babies this year. 500,000 fewer babies That's a 10 to 15% drop from last year. In about 10 months since our lives were turned upside down by this pandemic, which means we're just now seeing the beginning of what could be the baby bust of 2021. KCRW's Kaylie Wells. You might have thought with all of us trapped at home. Lots of time on her hands. Nothing to do. The setting was perfect for a baby boom. Well, U C l A o b g Y n Dr Yalda. Ashar thought her job might look a little different this year. We thought there was going to be an increase in the number of births, but we haven't seen that uptick quite yet, but obviously the pandemic lasted longer and caused more turmoil and uncertainty than we expected in the spring. Turns out we won't see a big group of Caroni als or babies. Ooh, MERS After all. The trend is thanks to moms like Lindsay Howard. She spends her weekdays carrying for evey and working on her nursing degree. She spends her weekends at the hospital working as a nurse practitioner. Her husband also works in health care and flies around the country multiple times per week. So her hands are full. Add to that the uncertainty of living in a pandemic and suddenly growing her family wasn't the top priority anymore. We would have liked to start it before now, but they were just Too many unknown, I think stresses of timing, like initially in the beginning, birth partners weren't allowed into the hospitals that were kind of like, Well, maybe we should Hold off a little bit, especially, you know, we felt like higher risk with me being in the hospital in him having to fly everywhere. A study by the Guttmacher Institute last year found that a third of all women surveyed wanted to postpone their pregnancy or have fewer Children because of the pandemic. It's felt especially hard in places like L A. Because that number shoots up for people of color. Nearly half of Latina women reported that their plans have changed. L shirt isn't surprised by the trend. She is a marriage and family therapist in Beverly Hills who has seen a spike in demand for her services in 2021 of the things that I'm kind of hearing most like in The moms group that I was running Woz Ah fear around raising infants during a pandemic and worrying about job loss or They already have Children and their managing child care as well, She says. The financial uncertainty the concern over safety, no school no grand parents there to help all of that added two couples holding off on starting or expanding their families. Demographer in U. C. L. A professor and pebbly says those concerns match other dips and population growth throughout history, like the great recession in 2008. Part of the choice of having kids is whether you can afford to do so. And people often Reduce the number of Children they have or postpone fertility when they are feeling like insecure financially, So it's just adding to a trend that the US is already seeing. On average. Women here give birth to 1.8 Children That's below the 2.0 replacement rate, and it's continuing to go down. Plus, California has one of the lowest fertility rates in the country. Last fiscal year. There were 14,000 fewer Californians born than the year before. The total U. S population is still growing, though Thanks to immigration. Heavily predicts the baby bust in places like the United States could be counterbalanced by a baby boom in poor countries with less access to contraception and abortion. More economically insecure in our system in our higher income system means she's cut down on expenses, but Children aren't that expensive in many poor countries. And so you know, you're not putting huge amounts of money into all the things we do when you have a child, so having another child may actually be a good economic decision. But just like with the great recession or the 1918 pandemic busts are temporary. Sharon says her clients has long term plans haven't changed much at all. In my work. It's mostly a postpone until this is something that feels safer or more manageable for me or my family. You see, like Professor and demographer Jessica Gibson says that in fact, the couples who delayed in 2020 might make up for lost time. I think we might have a little boomlet. They think this happened after the great recession. Also, you know where people sort of delayed or postponed And then there was, you know, a little bump afterwards. It be interesting to see also, how perspectives have changed now that we have a vaccine. Some people may feel you know, maybe more hopeful about the future and what they may want to do in terms of having a family that they may have thought about differently before the pandemic, Pebbly says. Those some couples may get down to business again soon. Housing for even just that year could mean smaller families. Overall, there's an old saying in our profession that sometimes postponement is really not having Children. In other words, you may postpone long enough that it a certain point you just don't have the child that you postponed. Howard could fall into that group, too. When she got married. Her dream was to have four kids. Then it took a while to conceive evey at on postponing her next pregnancy because of co vid. Now. She says they might stop it, too. I'm 35. So now I'm technically considered of advanced maternal age. So, um I don't know. You know, I thought I would. Have started a little bit sooner as far as trying for a second. Now Howard has gotten the vaccine and her husband will likely get his soon to. Meanwhile, she expects her work for that doctoral degree in nursing to ramp up next school year just when she planned to be pregnant. She and her husband haven't had the capital T talk about when they might start trying again. But she still hopes they'll grow their family sooner or later for KCRW. I'm Kaylee Wells. It's going to do it for us today. You heard earlier in the show, Dr Ivy, you'll Eldridge and Edwin Rivera..
