When Roe vs Wade was passed there were thousands of women in jails and prisons throughout the country; charged with murder for abortions. Unsure, or mysterious miscarriage were sometimes deemed an abortion also.
It was once a law that if a woman had an abortion and her husband didn’t authorized it she could be sent to prison for murder.
Many of these women’s sentences were abolished with the signing of this bill. So, if Roe vs Wade is overturned, and if these women are still alive, they can be send back to prison.
These convictions can be reactivated because these women were in prison for murder and murder has no A statute of limitations. I’m not saying it will happen but it can.
On January 22, 1973, the Supreme Court issued a 7–2 decision in favor of “Jane Roe” (Norma McCorvey) holding that women in the United States had a fundamental right to choose whether to have abortions.
Ending Roe vs Wade could send women to prison for miscarrying if she can’t prove she did nothing to cause it. This is some of what I meant, when I say the law is about a lot more than abortions. If a woman can’t prove she naturally miscarried then she can find herself in jail and this once happened and from the looks of things, can it happen again.
