The #DobbsvJackson  Mississippi SCOTUS ruling needn’t worry anyone except women capable of serving as human breeders?

Jane Roe in Roe v. Wade and Henry Wade  We know that “Jane Roe” in the Roe v. Wade class-action lawsuit filed by attorneys Sarah Weddington and Linda Coffee was Norma McCorvey, a young, down-and-out Dallas waitress who couldn’t get an abortion and in fact never got an abortion because the lawsuit dragged on until terminating the pregnancy was no longer a possibility. She later became an anti-abortion activist, and in 2003 she sued the Dallas district attorney in a futile attempt to overturn Roe. v. Wade, claiming that she didn’t understand what an abortion was when she signed on as a plaintiff in 1969.

Dallas County District Attorney Henry Wade was an accidental defendant. If Coffee and Weddington had found a client in El Paso or Houston, Henry Wade wouldn’t be “Wade.” He didn’t even argue the Supreme Court case that made him a symbol of “the disciplining of women’s bodies through law.” The landmark lawsuit wrote him into the wrong historical narrative.

Wade made his name as a hard-nose and heartless prosecutor who holds the record for the highest felony conviction rate 92 percent in a state that perennially ranks in the top five in the percentage of residents incarcerated.

Who Was Wade in Roe v. Wade? Looking back at the accidental defendant

Trump’s legacy grows as SCOTUS​​​​​​ ​overturns Roe…

Abortion is still legal in the U.S.…

This is a legal tragedy and a false and infamous confession to misogyny. Since when was it a defense to say I hurt only women?

Will SCOTUS also ban biracial or gay marriage? 

Keeping Mississippi's only abortion Clinic Open

The clinic will fight as Roe v Wade is overturned

Roe v. Wade, 410 U.S. 113 (1973), was a landmark decision of the U.S. Supreme Court in which the SCOTUS ruled that the Constitution of the United States protects a pregnant woman's liberty to choose to have an abortion without excessive government restriction. The decision struck down many U.S. federal and state abortion laws.
