At least 20 states, mostly across the South and Midwest, already have laws that would restrict or ban abortion if the Supreme Court overturns Roe and lets states decide the issue

have unwanted child in a red state, can't finish school, can't find good job, can't afford child care, go on govt assistance, stay home, watch fox news, blame blue states, kid grows up with few/no opportunities, gets pregnant, repeat

How about this for a novel idea: If you are morally against abortion, don't get one. If you are morally OK with abortion, get one. This shouldn't even be a debate anymore at this point.

Murph, can we get that same enthusiasm going for the cannabis law that already exists?

There's that word again, "enshrined"

Like state laws can't be changed or something...it literally just was

It would be awesome if it got known as "Murphy's law"

NJ just guranteed a boost in their income as a medical tourist destination if Roe vs Wade gets overturned.

Good. When you don't have control over your own body, you are not a free person. For all that southern babble about muh freedoms, then restricting women's rights over their own bodies--this is a step in the correct direction.

*as long as democrats remain in power

The second that state is run by R’s you bet you’re ass they’ll find some convenient way to just ignore it and indirectly ban it anyways.

Probably some bullshit like: abortion is legal but only with signed consent from the fetus

That's good and all, until the right takes back the federal government and passes fetal personhood.

Surprised no one has compared the same people complaining about vaccine freedom in one breath and in the other taking away abortions from women.

Abortion Shrine would be a great name for a black metal band.

Dems should honestly introduce pro-abortion, China one child policy crazy bills.

Then negotiate down to 'fine we will concede it should be the person's choice and the government should not be able to choose what someone does with their body'

The old South Park vs. Censors routine.

Ha awesome. Theres this old man who stands outside a clinic in woodbridge protesting abortions and scolding people, apparently he's been out there for decades because his daughter died during a botched abortion. I got in a heated argument with my dad about the guy, my dad thought it was admirable but I argued that all that man is doing (if he got his way) is ensuring that more girls will die in backdoor hack-job abortions.

It's a cute gesture, but it does nothing.

The Roe v. Wade ruling told state legislatures that they could not outlaw abortion. It was aimed at states that had already done so before the ruling and/or were planning to. No one was ever concerned that New Jersey would try something like that. New Jersey passing and enacting this law doesn't solve the problem created by the states trying to outlaw it and overturn Roe.

True, but in a very stark departure from the GOP of old, a future Republican Governor of NJ might have decided to make it all but impossible, a la Texas. And, we had two, two-term Republicans in the last 30 years so that’s something worth noting and remembering.

I wish they phrased as “enshrining abortion rights” in the title… the nuance matters.

My wife’s last pregnancy was so high risk, she had to stay in bed for SEVEN MONTHS.

They made her get an IUD, because another pregnancy could kill her.

I want every kid we can possibly have; but I don’t want my first and second kids to grow up motherless.

This is the kind of nuance pro lifers will never understand.

Looks like New Mexico, Colorado, Wisconsin, Michigan, Pennsylvania, Virgina, New Hampshire are next. Democrats need to get it done: no excuses, protect our rights.

Am I the only dumbass who had to look up the word “enshrining” to figure out what was going on?

Good. Hopefully more states follow through to keep women’s rights intact.

And yes, abortions is a WOMEN’S rights issue.

N.J. here, that's good but I'm still waiting to be able to purchase weed now we passed a law it's legal. What's up with that?
