Roeing Backwards

Supreme Court overturns Roe v. Wade; states can ban abortion (apnews.com)

U.S. history is staked with milestones relating to the attainment of rights–freedom, suffrage, privacy, equality. I've always viewed our system as a process that moves toward more rights for its people. Progress is achieved in fits and starts, of course, but our history has always moved in the same direction–more rights for the people.

That all changed today when the Supreme Court actually eliminated an existing, federally protected right of all women of the United States by overturning its decision in Roe v. Wade.

The country I know and love is suddenly a country that takes rights away from its people.

That's backwards. And disgusting. And horrific.
