Rapping East-West, Abortion Pills and a Starbucks Fight Club
From inside the U.S. Capitol, Deb Fischer defends her party’s push for abortion restrictions in states like Georgia and Alabama as protesters outside shout that the Supreme Court’s 1973 Roe v. Wade decision is in danger of being overturned. “I don’t know that I see a case the court would take. It’s a what-if,” the Republican senator from Nebraska says. Meanwhile, hundreds of abortion rights advocates — and harried-looking presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders — are storming the nearby Supreme Court steps. “It’s a human right, and we need to understand that,” says high school senior and ballerina Julie Gundzik, whose company performs while carrying signs supporting abortion access.
The debate in Washington is playing out with ferocity nationwide after six states passed laws to curtail abortion in recent months. Democrats fret that those laws are aimed at challenging past court precedents and could reach the conservative-majority Supreme CourtBut a reversal of Roe would merely toss the matter to individual states rather than ban the practice outright. And in the state-by-state legal framework that would emerge, a key question might be one that’s garnered little national attention: What about the intensifying war over abortion facilitated by telemedicine?
