If Roe v. Wade is overturned - What does it mean for Americans?
Let’s be real, either you believe that women have the right to decide when they want to subject their body to procreation; or you believe that society should make that decision for all people with uteruses.
Abortion advocates truly wish that we lived in a society where abortion was unnecessary. However, until healthcare is fair and equitable to all, then abortion rights will serve as the line in the sand.

Making abortions illegal will not stop all abortions. Nor will it stop the reasons that individuals seek out abortions. This blatant encroachment on women’s rights is a transparent attack on the most vulnerable of our society.
Wealthy individuals that have disposable income will continue to have access to any doctor or procedure they can pay for. This is specifically an attack on the healthcare of predominantly poor women of color.
Restricting access to abortions does not stop them from happening, it just makes them less safe for people who give birth and their doctors.
Democrats have had decades to codify Roe v Wade into law and have instead used the ‘fear of loss’ of that access as a political chess piece.
Green Party members believe that as a matter of right, all persons must have the opportunity to benefit equally from the resources afforded us by society and the environment. We must consciously confront in ourselves, our organizations, and society at large, any discrimination by race, class, gender, sexual orientation, age, nationality, religion, or physical or mental ability that denies fair treatment and equal justice under the law.
