What Happens If Roe Is Reversed

MSNBC Contributor Jennifer Rubin believes that if Roe v. Wade is changed, “In essence, we go to 50 civil wars in each of the states, plus the District of Columbia.”

Rubin stated, “The people who brought Donald Trump and delivered him to the White House want this [the overturn of Roe], and I think they will not be disappointed. So then the question is, if they’re not able to withstand this onslaught, not able to hold back a justice that would reverse Roe, what happens? In essence, we go to 50 civil wars in each of the states, plus the District of Columbia. And here is where I think the Republicans have badly overplayed their hand. There is no, and I mean no significant constituency for doing what they want to do, which is criminalizing abortion and punishing women and/or doctors. Poll after poll, 67%, 69%, 70% of people want to keep Roe. And what that means is, they want to keep a constitutional protection. If that then goes back to the state legislatures, you’re going to see an uproar. And I think if we haven’t already seen women mobilize through the #MeToo movement, through the election of Donald Trump, through the separation of children, you are going to see even more women in the streets, on the ballot, and voting to throw people out who do not recognize women’s personal autonomy.”

  • Yeah keep the baby murderers alive. If there is a civil war in any state these pro-abortion asshole will loose big time. It will be fun killing them. Just like it is fun for them to kill babies.

      Are you male? What is your stake? Probably a Trumpist.

      • twostickmack

        you a male.whats your excuse? just a socialist left wing democrat …a maxine supporter.go ahead.run maxine pelosi 2020.

  • ConservativeMe

    If it’s reversed maybe adult will finally start to be more responsible about their actions when having sex and sart to respect the lives they create… Deciding to have a baby or not starts in the bedromm not on an abortion table.

    • drew

      wow……………WHAT A GREAT AND LOGICAL answer. I was brought up a democrat….when they were normal. ….. now am basically independent leaning toward Conservatism. I feel you are correct.but what happens when rape occurs..or the birth control didn’t work ? I feel a women has the right to make that choice in certain instances. We should recognize a woman’s personal autonomy…..but I loved your answer.

      • ConservativeMe

        Pregnancy during a rape still isn’t the child’s fault and shouldn’t be punished for it and if birth control doesn’t work in both cases they can give up the child for adoption and BLESS couples unable to have children. Every child deserves a chance at life and every pregnancy is God’s greatest gift of life. Babies are the most precious and innocent of all and deserve to be protected at all cost.

  • Craig

    Oh yes the babies must be killed as a matter of female convenience. Please stop this sad defense of irresponsibility and start using birth control. When that fails protect life!

    • Larry Hines

      You are male and have no stake in this argument.

      • Phoebe Isley

        I am a female and Craig has just as much at stake as I do. This isn’t about male or female its about life either way and liability for ones actions which will not attribute to killing an unborn child. Why would you not feel this is just as much a male issue as female? As they say “it takes two to tango” so I believe your assessment of “male not having stake in this argument” is FALSE!


    The BUTCHERING of 2,000 Innocent Defenseless BABIES per DAY in the USA will come to an END ! The coming 7 to 2 TRUMP SCOTUS is going to STOP Baby MURDERERS !

    • ontopofit

      Think of all the Democrats they did away with. What irony.

    • metheoldsarge

      This also reminds me of Typical Liberal Hypocrisy! Most of our pro-choice politicians are also on the Open Borders bandwagon. I believe that the only thing these migrant children mean to Liberals is future voters for Democrats. The hypocrite Liberals insist they are so concerned about tearing immigrant children from their mothers. What a crock. When it comes to abortionists ripping unborn children from the womb, they could care less.

      • Larry Hines

        Fetuses, not children.

        • twostickmack

          they have a heartbeat and yes they are children.and yes its cold blooded murder same as if you pulled the trigger.

          • metheoldsarge

            My thoughts exactly.

    • Larry Hines

      You are male a troll and have no stake in this argument.

  • Eggman

    Whoa, let’s think about this. After all the vast majority of abortions are from folks on the left. Who are we to tell them they can’t commit genocide

    • Larry Hines

      I doubt if you have any proof of that statement. Many of the pregnant mothers don’t know yet if they are on the left or the right politically.

  • grinnie

    I still believe in PERSONAL responsibility….why should someone else be made to pay for MY indescretions (sic)? IF I make a mistake, there is adoption. IF I make a second ‘mistake’, there is tubal ligation so no more ‘mistakes’ are made.

  • ontopofit

    Intelligent women know the in womb baby has a different DNA than the mother so it isn’t HER body she is “doing away with.”

    • Larry Hines

      Yeah, it is a parasite anyway.

      • twostickmack

        obviously you a parasite.an innocent child is not.

  • ontopofit

    you have a choice to jump in bed. You have a choice when you don’t use contraception. The poor baby gets your third choice.

  • sandy

    I think what is at stake here is not the legality of having an abortion. Sure, every woman has the right to make her own decision regarding her own body. What is at stake is, that if you decide to end the life growing within you, PAY FOR IT YOURSELF!!!!!! I think most NORMAL people will agree that it is not the fault of an innocent, defenseless unborn child that it was conceived! If you don’t want to have a baby, keep your legs together or use contraception! If people were to have to pay for the murder of their unborn child, maybe they would hold themselves more accountable. Taxpayers shouldn’t have to pay for the murder of unborn children.
    ASPCA holds fundraisers to save dogs and cats, but taxpayers have no choice in the contribution to kill babies. Hmmm…., what’s wrong with this picture?

  • metheoldsarge

    I have some questions I would like to hear put publicly to our
    pro-choice politicians but I wonder if any of them would have the
    intestinal fortitude to answer them.

    Have they ever observed an abortion?

    Have they ever seen a fetus after the abortion?

    Have they ever witnessed a partial birth abortion?

    Do they believe that partial birth abortion is or isn’t murder?

    Are they that cold blooded to actually worry more about political

    How about it Senators. Are you that cold blooded?

    Do you have the nerve to even answer that?

    There are those who insist that sometimes abortion is necessary. Others
    say it is never necessary. It is an issue that has and will continue
    to be debated until the cows come home. In any case, it is my
    opinion that abortion should never be used as just another form of
    birth control. The most brutal is partial birth abortion. In my
    opinion that is nothing short of murder. That procedure has been
    illegal since Bush signed The Partial-Birth Abortion Ban Act of 2003
    and was upheld by the Supreme Court in 2007.

    Unwanted pregnancies are tragic and compounded when the babies are born with
    drug addiction and/or HIV. The billions we send each year to
    countries that hate us could be put to better use here. It could go
    a long way toward educating these single mothers on prevention and
    also helping them to become more productive members of the community.
    It could also help provide the care needed for drug addicted and HIV
    babies. More assistance could also be provided for agencies to
    arrange adoption for the unwanted babies.

    What is tragic is when the aborted child could have been a healthy baby
    that a childless couple would have been grateful to have. There are
    many couples that wait for years to be able to adopt a child. I
    wonder where these considerations are on the priority list of our pro
    choice politicians, if they are even there at all.

    I wonder how many of the older pro-choice or abortion activists were
    anti-war protesters in the 1960s? How many of them spit on our
    uniforms and called us baby killers?
