Re: If Trump loses?

It won't make it illegal, that is up to the states. There are states where abortion might be made illegal, or severely restricted. Right now, SCOTUS has knocked down most attempts by states to put in place major restrictions. Abortion proponents generally want no restrictions anywhere. Overturning Roe would not stop states from having legal abortions, it is likely that many would. It is almost the same as gun advocates and the second amendment. The arguments are about sowing fear of the most unlikely scenarios. Besides, right or wrong is not determined by a majority vote. The fact that more Americans favor legalized abortion in some form is totally separate from whether it is truly right or wrong.
