Two Articles on the Consequences of Reversing Roe

Recently, the USA Today put out another scare piece on what would happen if Roe were reversed filled with the usual misleading polls and ominous warnings about “trigger laws” as if elected officials across the country, pro-life, pro-choice and somewhere in-between wouldn’t immediately start taking positions and demanding new legislation if Roe was reversed.

A better and, at least in my humble opinion, really brilliant piece by Ramesh Ponnuru in The New Republic hits the closer to the mark. Ponnuru takes on the emerging conventional wisdom, first articulated by The New Republic, that reversing Roe would be devastating to the GOP.
