Roe

  • Updated

The Supreme Court is off to a historically slow start in failing to resolve any cases in which it has heard arguments since early October. By this point, more than three months after the start of the court’s term, the justices had until now always decided at least one case and usually a handful.

OPINION: "I will proudly apply my monthly Social Security check to help fund transportation and medical support for someone in Arizona needing to travel out-of-state to have an abortion. If circumstances require, I am willing to drive them to a clinic and hold their hand during the procedure, too," writes Tucsonan Joan Zatorski.

OPINION: "Overturning Roe v. Wade disallows Jewish women from following the practice of our religion. When abortion is permitted and sometimes - mainly when the mother’s life and health are at risk - even required in Judaism, legal restrictions and bans become a First Amendment issue," writes state Rep. Alma Hernandez.

OPINION: "I share the voters’ concerns, for I was recently pregnant. I had my second child almost four months ago, and watched with concern–bordering on panic–as our state Legislature passed laws during my pregnancy impacting the health care I could receive," writes Priya Sundareshan, candidate for Arizona Senate in Legislative District 18. 

OPINION: "Americans are likely to soon face the prospect of half the states forbidding women from exercising fundamental freedom over their bodies. To enhance prohibition on abortions, many state legislatures plan to punish individuals or organizations – in state or out – who assist a woman in obtaining an abortion, even offering “bounties” to private citizen who identify abortion providers," writes UA historian Michael Schaller.
