According to a newly leaked document, the U.S. Supreme Court is poised to overturn Roe v. Wade later this year. The decision promises to have major repercussions culturally and, by leaving decisions about reproductive rights up to individual states, may also create changes in where people choose to live.
We asked to hear from the Inman community about your views of the ruling and its impact. Here’s what you said:
- I am pro-life and conservative but we have pushed things too far. There will be a backlash led by suburban women and all of the conservative agenda will be in jeopardy.
- So dumb. It’s all about control. They don’t care about the actual people this will affect.
- Zero impact
- Words can’t express how devastating for women this decision will be. My friends, both Democrat and Republican, are incensed about the court allowing the states to control their bodies.
- I will be very upset if Roe v Wade is overturned. The impact will increase a polarizing of our country. Many of my friends are already talking about leaving this country. Our country becomes less desirable to live in and put money into investments, especially real estate, with such a volitive political divide.
- If Roe v Wade is struck down by SCOTUS, then it gets kicked back to the states. People may leave the state they live in if they disagree with the state’s position on abortion.
- Life might begin at conception and as a sentient society we need to ensure systems that ensure equity for life, but that does not erode a woman’s fundamental right to choose what happens to her body. I find it totally out of place for a man to write an opinion impacting a woman’s worth and freedom that he has no frame of reference to even appreciate.
Thank you for participating.
