Stacey Dash To Star In Anti-Abortion ‘Roe v. Wade’ Film

In fact many states have already put into place a number of laws restricting abortion, which could make it to the Supreme Court in the future.

A recent court case in OH offers a hint of how a post-Roe world would work.

Nick Loeb, a producer, director, and star of the movie, told the Hollywood Reporter that actors and crew have bailed on him, and owners of filming locations have barred filming, after they learned that the movie takes a decidedly pro-life approach to the 1973 Supreme Court ruling that gave women the "right" to kill their pre-born babies.

Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME) attends a lunch meeting for Republican lawmakers in the Cabinet Room at the White House June 26, 2018 in Washington, DC.

MSNBC host Ali Velshi asked Roberts about a tweet she wrote saying women would be under fire from all these different directions if the Supreme Court overturned Roe.

Arizona's ban on abortion dates to territorial days in 1901-11 years before Arizona became a state. Because Roe had not been decided by a close vote (the vote was actually 7-2), and because it had bipartisan support, with both liberal and conservative justices on the Court voting with the majority and with key leaders in both political parties endorsing the decision, no one at the time, whether inside or outside of the pro-life movement, thought an imminent reversal of the decision was likely.

Roughly a dozen other states appear unlikely to enact tougher abortion laws, and some of those, such as California and Maryland, have laws explicitly protecting the right to access abortion. In 1981, she testified before Congress in support of a bill that, if passed, would have allowed states to prosecute abortion as murder, The New York Times reports.

One pending case, for instance, involves an Arkansas law that would effectively ban medication abortions. Democrats need to maintain their votes, plus one Republican to vote against the nominee to halt confirmation.

While pro-life activists were angry that Bork had not been confirmed, they believed that under the new arrangement, they had probably obtained an anti-Roe vote in Justice Kennedy. They therefore felt betrayed when the Court instead voted by 5-4 to reaffirm the main outlines of Roe, with Kennedy writing the majority opinion.

Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo has urged Republican state lawmakers to reconsider their opposition to legislation codifying abortion rights in NY state law. Leo singled out Barrett and Kavanaugh as having "a lot of name recognition among supporters of the president, and I think that ultimately when people like them are nominated you'll see a lot of folks line up". After all, abortion opponents thought they had five votes on their side in 1992.

During the 2016 campaign, and in subsequent interviews, President Donald Trump repeatedly assured conservative voters that his nominees would scrap the 45-year-old decision that legalized abortion across the country.
