Despite ruling, abortion to remain legal in Delaware
The U.S. Supreme Court’s overturning of Roe v. Wade Friday will not affect access to abortions in Delaware. For nearly 50 years, there had been constitutional protections for abortion across the nation. The ruling now means that abortion bans may be put in place in nearly half the states, the Associated Press reported.
Everyone seems shocked that the SCOTUS returned decision making to the people and the state legislatures. If our Delaware legislators were so convinced that the Constitution guarantees the right to abortion on demand, why did they pass this legislation years ago? If it is the desire of the people in Delaware to support a nationwide federal law legalizing abortion, rally to encourage Carper and Coons to sponsor such legislation in Washington. — Bob Skuse
