2022-04-18 Roe V Wade And Making Abortions Illegal

Before the Roe v Wade decision, states had laws that made abortions illegal. Occasionally, in the newspaper I would read the news that a woman had died from septicemia (blood infection) after receiving an illegal abortion.

Back then both state and federal laws made marijuana illegal. But that didn’t prevent many younger people from growing and smoking pot. Back in the 1920s during prohibition making alcohol illegal didn’t prevent people from drinking.

If Roe v Wade is overturned and states make laws prohibiting abortions, just as it was in the past, those laws will not prevent illegal abortions. As long as pregnant women are willing to pay for an abortion there will be those who are willing to do abortions. But because they are not done in a hospital but are done in unsanitary location, there will be many more deaths, not just the fetus but the mother, too. That was how it used to be and that is how it will be again.

“Those who don’t learn from history are doomed to repeat it.”
