Health Editor’s Note: We cannot send women back into the world of unsafe and often deadly abortions. Each woman has the right to govern her own body as apparently do men. Abortion is a highly personal issue and requires no input from the uninvolved. A woman is responsible for the baby she gives birth to for literally the remainder of her life. She knows what she can and cannot handle. Leave the decision to her. Also, there are many medical issues that can arise during a pregnancy, not the least of which is the death of the fetus before it is due to be born. Would you like to carry a dead baby within your body until your body finally rejects it? If you are not the pregnant woman who has to make a decision, stay out of it! Why are you trying to involve yourself in another’s personal business? Take care of your own problems!!!!! How about the COVID-19 pandemic and antivaxxers avoiding vaccinations? The longer you go unvaccinated the more variants we will have. This could be the straw that breaks the camel’s back. You can comment on this article but I will NOT be be arguing with you as this is my sound medical opinion on both the continuation of safe abortions and COVID-19 vaccinations…… Carol

When the Supreme Court hands down its decision in a highly-watched Mississippi abortion case this summer, access to legal abortion could end for more than 100 million Americans, including those living in nearly every Southern state and large swaths of the Midwest.
Twenty-one states are poised to immediately ban or acutely curtail access to abortions if the Supreme Court chooses to overturn or weaken Roe v. Wade, the landmark 1973 decision that for nearly 50 years has guaranteed women’s right to seek an abortion, according to the Guttmacher Institute, a research group in favor of abortion rights.
At the crux of the legal argument made by the state of Mississippi, which is seeking to overturn Roe, is that the U.S. Constitution is neutral on the matter of abortion — meaning the power to regulate it should rest in the hands of individual states.
“When an issue affects everyone and when the Constitution does not take sides on it, it belongs to the people,” said Mississippi solicitor general Scott Stewart during Wednesday’s oral arguments over the case, which is known as Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization.
