Breaking... US Supreme Court overturns Roe v Wade

    It looks like a Dred Scott type decision.

    Not good at all.

    This puts a lot of later decisions on the right to privacy in the firing line now too, there's no way they'll stop at abortion.

    Women should arm themselves against privileged frat boys. Use the 'stand your ground' law.

    We can only hope that this will lead to a backlash against those that caused this.

    If people want their rights back, they are going to need to vote democrat.

    The Right religious conservatives and who knows who else have today overturned the constitutional right to abortion in the US.

    Will this now embolden anti abortionists in this country to fight back?

    The US is a cold place for women now.

    Certainly for poor women. The rich will always get what they need, but other rights must be in question now as well.

    I don't think it will embolden anti abortion activists here given the legitimacy of the widely supported referendum. It's a shame their constitution doesn't allow for simple referendums like ours, as there would be a majority in favour of abortion there as well.

    They're too busy focussing on nonsense, minority-supported issues and issues that won't win votes. Unless there's American boots on the ground somewhere in 2 years' time the GOP will win the trifecta handy enough and then the fun and games can really begin.
