Thirteen states, according to the Guttmacher Institute, already have "trigger laws" prohibiting the majority of abortions, which will go into force as soon as the verdict is handed down on Friday.
Arkansas, Idaho, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, North Dakota, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, and Wyoming are the nine states in the contiguous United States.
Until the Roe v. Wade decision in 1973, five additional states had their own abortion restrictions in place. Alabama, Arizona, Michigan, West Virginia, and Wisconsin are all included in this category.
Abortion is illegal after six weeks in Georgia, Iowa, Ohio, and South Carolina, according to the Institute. After Roe v. Wade is overturned, such statutes will be reexamined.
According to the organization, the legislatures of Florida, Indiana, Montana, and Nebraska are all but certain to outlaw abortion in the near future.According to the Institute, 26 of the 50 states in the United States are either likely or certain to outlaw abortion after Friday's Supreme Court decision.
"Beyond the 26 states that are certain or likely to try to outlaw abortion immediately, other states have exhibited animosity towards abortion by enacting several restrictions in the past, but are not likely to ban abortion in the near future," says Davidson. It's worth noting that North Carolina already has a pre-Roe abortion ban in place, but it's not clear when that statute will go into effect. According to the institute's website, "this analysis may alter in the following several years."
At least 25 states are expected to restrict abortion, according to the Center for Reproductive Rights, a pro-abortion organization. Montana, Iowa, and Florida, according to this group, are unlikely, while North Carolina and Pennsylvania, on the other hand, are likely.
Roe and Planned Parenthood v. Casey, the 1992 decision that upheld Roe, were wrong on the day they were decided and must be reversed, said Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito in his opinion for the majority on Friday. He contended that courts do not have the ability to restrict abortion, and that only legislators do.
That is why we conclude that the Constitution does not provide an individual the right to terminate a pregnancy. Abortion must be restored to the people's elected representatives, Alito argued, and Roe and Casey must be overturned.
Amy Coney Barrett and Clarence Thomas joined Alito's panel of justices. Roberts stated that he would have ended Roe, but that he would have sustained the Mississippi legislation at the core of this case. "
Sonia Sotomayor, Elena Kagan, and Stephen Breyer, on the other hand, dissenting, Their dissent was characterized by the words, "With sorrow—for this Court, but more importantly for the countless millions of American women who have now lost a basic constitutional right.
HNewsWire: Attempts to assassinate Justice Brett Kavanaugh followed the May 2 leak of Justice Samuel Alito's Friday judgment, which overturned a 1973 decision guaranteeing universal access to abortion.
This came as no surprise to the other three members of the court: Justices Breyer, Sotomayor, and Kagan.

As recently as a few weeks ago, Vice President Joe Biden predicted a "little revolution" among Democrats in November's midterm elections if the historic decision was reversed, stressing that doing so would be "crazy."
There is no way that "if in reality the judgment comes down and these states impose the constraints they're talking about, it would trigger a mini-revolution, and they're going to throw these people out of office," he added.

Roe v. Wade was sought and failed to be codified into federal law earlier this year by Congressional Democrats. In the meanwhile, Biden said that he was considering the use of executive orders in light of the Supreme Court's eventual judgment on the case.
He also encouraged people to vote in midterm elections so that Democrats would have enough of a majority in Congress to make abortion legal.
If you don't cast your ballot, "the devil knows where you stand," he warned Jimmy Kimmel.
Protests are next
SRH: It's remarkable how the public perceives the saint as the bad guy. In certain communities today, there is a backlash against "intolerant Christians." The pious who fight for honesty and truth will always face opposition. If you represent the LORD and hold Him up as the standard, the world will despise you and blame you for the problems caused by God's judgements. Elijah had arrived to deliver God's kindness in the shape of rain.
The Supreme Court might issue its final ruling on whether or not to overturn Roe v Wade any day now (likely Thursday). If the Supreme Court's nine justices reverse the case, the choice to prohibit abortions will become a state affair. It would spark protests, as alarming fliers have already began to surface across Washington, D.C., threatening rioting if the verdict is reversed.
Ramesh Ponnuru of National Reviews tweeted a photo of a pamphlet slapped on the side of what seems to be the concrete base of a light pole on the side of a roadway in D.C. According to the flyer:
"DC CALL TO ACTION ON RAGE NIGHT..." SCOTUS OVD.CT-URNS ROE V. WADE IN THE EVENING, YOU SAID YOU'D RIOT."
'TO OUR OPPRESSORS: IF ABORTIONS ARE NOT SAFE, YOU ARE NOT EITHER.' JANE'S REVENGE
Jane's Revenge, a pro-abortion group, signed the flier and recently vowed "open season" against pro-life organizations and crisis pregnancy clinics. During rallies, the extreme organization has a reputation of causing property damage. They claimed responsibility for vandalizing a pregnancy help center in Des Moines, Iowa, earlier this month, according to Michael Snyder's blog The End of the American Dream.
The growing potential of societal disturbance in the aftermath of the approaching verdict is alarming, as is the arrest of an armed man outside Justice Brett Kavanaugh's house. Demonstrators have gathered outside the houses of conservative Justices, while a security barrier and more security guards surround the Supreme Court headquarters.
Ponnuru's tweet urged the Federal Bureau of Investigation to investigate the pamphlet for inciting riots.
"The Jane's Revenge threats have garnered little attention in the rest of the press, but we hope the Washington, D.C., and Capitol police are considerably more prepared than they were for the riots of 2020 and 2021." "The WSJ Editorial Board wrote on Monday.
According to a letter submitted to The Anarchist Library purportedly authored by Jane's Revenge, the forthcoming decision "should ignite wrath in millions of individuals who can become pregnant."
"We need the state to feel the full force of our rage..." We need them to be terrified of us."
"The first step, whatever shape your rage takes, is to experience it." The next stage is to take that rage out into the world and physically vent it. Consider this your rallying cry. We are appealing for brave souls to come out after dark on the night the ultimate verdict is issued—a precise date we cannot now anticipate but know is approaching quickly."
And now, the country is waiting for the Supreme Court's decision, which may overturn Roe v. Wade and unleash a summer of upheaval.
The FBI has issued a warning that it will not allow "violence, damage, interference with official activities, or trespassing on federal property."
