ABSTRACT
The article discusses the possibility of the overturning of Roe v. Wade, the Supreme Court ruling that allows women to get abortions in the United States. Political pundits believe that the Republican Party would be greatly hurt if pro-abortion laws were overturned. Republicans would have to begin legislating the issue and risk alienating voters.
