Prior to Roe vs Wade abortion was a criminal act in every state. Criminals can be prosecuted. Some DA’s might not have gone after the woman. But that was strictly a judgement call. Perhaps a political one too.
Repeal the Roe vs Wade court decision and the existing state laws *Immediately *go back into effect. .So yes, woman can and might be prosecuted. Commit a criminal act and you can be prosecuted.
Which is why those of us that support a woman’s right to choose are fighting so hard to prevent the gradual erosion of Roe vs Wade. States are constantly finding clever ways to interfere. Waiting periods, parental consent requirements, limiting access to the day after pill, almost anything they can dream up to force a woman into becoming a walking incubator. God help us if Roe vs Wade gets struck down.
Why is Trump so wrong? Assume he stacks the Supreme Court with conservatives and Roe vs Wade gets struck down. Who’s going to tell prosecutors in all 50 states they can’t prosecute these abortion cases?
Yeah it sucks, and I sure as hell hope we can protect Roe vs Wade. But I don’t see where Trump misspoke.
