Abortion, like many of America’s most divisive disputes, is clearly a dilemma: “A situation in which a difficult choice has to be made between two or more alternatives, especially equally undesirable ones.” Or “A situation where there is no clear easy choice or answer.“
For a historical perspective see this link; Roe vs. Wade brief discussion and decision: https://www.oyez.org/cases/1971/70-18 –
Roe leans heavily on the “Due Process Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment” which provides for “a fundamental right to privacy” that ostensibly protects a pregnant woman’s choice whether to have an abortion. However, this right has to be balanced against the government’s interests in protecting women’s health and protecting “the potentiality of human life.” Interestingly the liberal extremists do not believe in privacy concerning “vaccine status”, which is a shameful breach of HIPAA law too.
With respect to the Constitution, rights not explicitly delegated to the federal government are supposed to revert to our states individually (States’ Rights). “The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.”
With that in mind, it makes sense to strike down Roe vs. Wade, and let each state decide on its own how to proceed. In some cases, new state laws will be more lenient than current federal law, and in other cases it will be stricter. There are many variations in how these laws can be codified, which tends to correspond to the majority will (voters) in each state.
Among issues to be legislated and decided at the state level are: the age of the fetus; whether incest or rape are at issue; issues concerning the health of the fetus and its viability.
On one extreme side people believe there should never be any abortions in any cases, and on the other extreme they believe in even “partial birth abortion.” The best choice is a matter of personal perspective and opinion in this dilemma, best left to each state to decide on its own, in this author’s opinion.
Some people believe in Roe vs. Wade (federal government control); assuming they have read and understand it, and related laws, and the Constitution. Irrespective of whether the federal government should be involved, it is still a double-edged sword, because if the other side takes power in Washington they could outlaw abortion entirely in the United States, claiming the Constitution expresses a right to human life, and that life begins once a heartbeat in a fetus can be detected.
The extremists (currently, shamefully protesting in front of Supreme Court justice’s homes) who claim abortion will not be available at all are incorrect. One could always go to another state if their state restricts it. Or move to state’s that lean more towards their political philosophies in the first place. One lady was complaining on TV that she was being forced to take a day off work; in such an extreme situation, that is hardly a burden, and should not be considered a material argument in this solemn matter. Another lady, in a video linked below, said people shouldn’t be forced to have babies they don’t want. This shows a disregard for human life, and is a false narrative, because she could practice abstinence, use birth control, have an abortion legally in her state, or go to one of the other dozens of states that provide safe abortion services. Nobody is being forced to have babies in the United States.

Janet Yellen is massively incompetent in her job, including very disgracefully claiming that more abortions are good for the economy. Another woke extremist commie puppet of the administration, driving the nation in the ground. How horrific.
