State Rep. Terry Collins, at a public forum last week, reiterated her intention to revisit her toughest-in-the-nation anti-abortion law should it withstand a court fight and result in the U.S. Supreme Court overturning Roe v. Wade.

Alabama"s anti abortion law and Tennessee's will be overturned in the courts..The real reason for them in the first place is because some people want our country to become a theocracy' some people do not believe in separation of church and state. Another reason is that some people like to populate a war on women. Another reason is because some people want to outlaw all forms of birth control. .The Supreme Court back in 1973 ruled that the Due Process Clause of the 14th amendment provides a right to privacy that protects a pregnant woman's liberty to choose whether or not to have an abortion. Roe V. Wade will not be overturned in the Supreme Court. At least one of Trumps appointees said that he considers Roe V. Wade settled law and Chief Justice Roberts is more and more siding with the liberals on the court. Trump will not be able to appoint another justice because he's going to be voted out of office next year. Happy Days! Sincerely David Rau

One could term the laws she 'author' is referring to a 'reckless pregnancy', or recklessly endangering the life of an unborn child whom the pregnant mother is responsible for. What's any different about this than 'reckless driving'? or 'driving while impaired' which causes injury or death? A mother's primary responsiblity is caring for her offspring, whether born or yet to be born. This is even true in the animal kingdom... but 'some' women/men who feel it's OK to murder the unborn child probably wouldn't understand this concept!
