After the recent reversal of the Roe v. Wade decision made by the Supreme Court in June of 2022, many are left with unanswered questions about how this will impact the United States. It’s important to separate fact from fiction to clarify further this verdict and what it means for each state.
Is Abortion Illegal in All U.S. States?
No, abortion is not illegal in every state. Recently when Roe v. Wade was overturned, the Supreme Court handed the power over to the people to make their own laws and restrictions on abortion for themselves.
The people can now vote on how to proceed with abortion restrictions in their state. Just as different states have differing opinions and laws that reflect those opinions, abortion restrictions will fluctuate from complete bans to open abortion access. Thus, abortion laws will adjust according to the views of the people who elect delegates to speak on their behalf and uphold their beliefs.
Do Women Still Have a Say?
Yes, women still have a say in abortion laws. Like other laws that are voted into power, women can make their voices heard at the voting booths. Women can help decide who will voice their opinions and have a say on what laws should be enforced on abortion.
What Are the Current Abortion Regulations for Colorado?
Colorado currently has no restrictions on abortion access but does require minors to give notification. Furthermore, there is no public funding assistance for elective, induced abortions and so patients are responsible for expenses.
