All over the U.S. the topic of abortion is being brought up in multiple states, as to why it is still being discussed I have no clue. On Wednesday, December 1st, the Supreme Court heard arguments over the topic of abortion.

This abortion case in Texas the Roe v. Wade lost, and there are so many mixed opinions, questions, and things to be said as whole about this trial. First is why put laws on what women can or cannot do with their bodies. Second why should any man have a say in the matter we don’t even have the same body parts, and half of the members in the Supreme Court don’t even know how an abortion is conducted. Lastly, there are so many cases as to why any female would need an abortion and most are from negative circumstances. No one feels good about getting an abortion so why make someone have to travel out of state and make them feel worse about it.

SB 8, the new Texas law that bans abortion after six weeks of pregnancy. According to https://americanpregnancy.org/healthy-pregnancy/week-by-week/5-weeks-pregnant/ women usually discover they are pregnant between the fourth or seventh week of pregnancy, and in some rare cases some women don’t notice until after the seventh week. So some women won’t even know they are pregnant and now no matter what their age or financial stability, they now have to deal with a life altering child.

Now Governor Gavin Newsom of California is calling for a new gun law based off of Texas’ new abortion law. To no surprise every single person in Texas has something to say about it. Not really, but many people are outraged at the fact that Newsom is taking their “Liberty’s” away.. what exactly do they think abortion is? Taking away the rights of someone else..“SCOTUS is letting private citizens in Texas sue to stop abortion?!” Mr. Newsom, a Democrat, tweeted. “If that’s the precedent, then we’ll let Californians sue those who put ghost guns and assault weapons on our streets. If TX can ban abortion and endanger lives, CA can ban deadly weapons of war and save lives.” Texas Twitter was not very happy about this tweet. Death threats, unsightly messages, and some positive reactions can been seen in comment section of this tweet. People from states other than Texas and California are starting to heat up this situation as well.

If this case in Texas becomes as widely spread as it should be in the news, this could potentially be worrisome. States usually follow in suit about major issues when put into court. A leading example of that would be the legalization of marijuana, one state put out the idea and 11 other states followed right behind in suit. Hopefully this does not end up as one of those cases and it just fizzles out because if this is a lasting thing I know the women of this country will not be silent for long.
