We are seeing what both the Supreme Court’s Dobbs ruling and the original founders meant from the beginning. That issues that were not explicitly defined in the Constitution, such as abortion, should be left to the states.
Pro-abortion activists have gathered in Washington D.C. expecting the ruling against them.

We could see the possible ruling as soon as today. Trigger laws were created in several states, including my state of Louisiana, that would take effect immediately after Roe v. Wade is overturned. Other states, however, have established abortion sanctuaries. All is well and good. Let it be up to each state, and respect their laws.
As one would expect from the pro-abortion movement there are attempts to weaken state laws restricting abortion. National Review
Stephanie Klick, a Representative from Texas, heard abortion advocates urging her to find a way to allow women to have an abortion after a fetal beat was detected. They came up with a solution: mail-order abortion pills.
One of the first things we heard online as the Heartbeat bill was under discussion was, “Oh, we have a backdoor.” To circumvent this law, “We can send these pills by mail,” Klick, a Republican, said.
Klick, a pro-life legislator, responded with Senate Bill 4, also known as the “No Mail-Order Abortions Bill”, which made it a felony to mail abortion pills in Texas. The bill, which became effective on December 1, provided extradition powers, which theoretically allow authorities to bring violators from out-of-state back to Texas to be prosecuted.
Mail-order abortion is not a quick and simple process. This forces the uterus and child to contract and expels the child. It can also lead to serious complications.
Pro-abortion advocates portray the chemical abortion process to be easy and safe. However, mifepristone can cause severe side effects such as hemorrhaging or septic shock, along with nausea, vomiting, cramping, heavy bleeding, and even more serious side effects.
If you take the pills after 13 weeks, it can cause an incomplete abortion. Also, abortion pills will not end an ectopic (a pregnancy that is outside the womb and usually in a fallopian tube) which can prove to be fatal if not properly diagnosed.
Last month, The 19th published a report about the often painful pain some women experience after getting abortion pills. One woman shared her experiences, saying that she was unaware of the extent of pain she would experience. I went through tremendous pain physically. I felt nauseated non-stop.
In the beginning, U.S. regulations allowed such medication to be used within the first 49 days after pregnancy. Under the Obama administration, the FDA expanded this to allow for the use of such medication within the first 70 days. It’s even more complicated with mail-order. How can one really, and properly, verify that the person ordering this pill will take it correctly, within an “appropriate” timeframe, etc.?
Internet and mail-order abortion are dangerous for the life of both the mother and the child.
You can also expect Democrats to continue trying to seize your gun rights if you are legally allowed to own one. This is guaranteed by the Second Amendment of our Constitution. What do you know that you won’t hear about during this entire process? Responsible gun owners who are legal and legally licensed try to subvert state and local laws.
They will fight any anti-gun laws in court. There isn’t a massive grassroots activist network that will send AR-15s to Californians just to get it done. This type of gun trafficking is usually for those who have an ulterior motive to use the guns. Gun owners who are responsible follow the law.
However, the pro-abortion cult doesn’t care at all about any of that. They don’t care much about laws. Because they are obsessed with a wrong that never existed, they only care about the murdering of unborn children. It was always derived out of an implied right. It is just as important to them that the Founders intended for such issues to be handled by the states as the explicitly stated right to keep and bear weapons. They do not believe the system as it is now is valid and want to challenge it every step of the way.
