When Roe v. Wade was dismissed a year ago, most Americans disagreed, and now most feel a growing threat to women’s health and rights, the ruling is a national I feel bad for the whole thing. Half told CBS News that access to abortion in the United States has become more difficult than expected in the past year.
last spring,And many say some of their fears are becoming a reality.
Women (6 out of 10 who do not support the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Law) feel that the decision is not only a violation of women’s rights but also a threat to their health: More than half of the women in the U.S. think they are pregnant today, increasing the risk from a medical perspective.
There are still quite a few Americans who have different feelings about the end of Law and what happened afterward. A majority of groups that have long been less supportive of abortion rights, including Republicans, conservatives and evangelicals, feel that Mr. Low’s downfall was good for the country.
Those who think Lo’s reversal is a good thing mostly cite “preserving the fetus” as the reason. Also, most people feel that “conservative values are being accepted.”
Majorities on each side of Mr. Low’s argument cite “states making access to abortion difficult” as the reason for their view, and how they feel about Mr. Low’s reversal will determine how states act. indicates that it can be both negative and positive.

Most of them believe that it is becoming increasingly dangerous to become pregnant in the United States from a medical point of view, and that access to reproductive medicine is becoming increasingly difficult. . Far fewer female Republican lawmakers hold this view.
