You don't have to be an abortion advocate to think this is a lamentable ruling, a sad day for women -- and a worrisome time for our country.

Erika Bachiochi: Our feminist foremothers would be proud of this decision

Much of the mainstream media's response to the Dobbs decision has been to overwhelmingly condemn what it takes to be, according to the dissent, "the curtailment of women's rights, and of their status as free and equal citizens." The now-repudiated constitutional right to abortion has been, after all, the cornerstone of feminist protest for more than a half century.

Leah Litman: Reversing Dobbs could take decades

The Supreme Court's decision in Dobbs v.

Jackson Women's Health Organization will have profound and generational consequences on Americans' lives.

It is also a capstone to the decades-long campaign led by the Republican Party to control the Supreme Court.

Democrats need to understand that reversing Dobbs may take a similarly long time, and they need to understand the work that will be required to accomplish it.

Well before former President Donald Trump, Republican presidential hopefuls were promising to appoint justices to the United States Supreme Court who would overrule Roe v.

The current and future generations of the Democratic Party should understand the kind of work -- and the kind of ruthlessness -- that went into the Republican Party's successful takeover of the Supreme Court.

The Supreme Court's overreach and its overturning of precedent reflects a patriarchal view of the world -- one which seeks to control women's bodies.

Kate Manne: This is a new level of misogyny

The Supreme Court's decision to overturn Roe and Casey is a devastating step back for the rights of girls, women and others who can get pregnant in America today.

Among the central norms and expectations therein is that women are to bear, birth and care for children regardless of our own wishes.

Make no mistake that this is about the misogynistic social control of girls and women -- not protecting the life of the fetus.

After all, anti-abortion activists show little to no interest in improving maternal mortality rates, fighting childhood hunger, securing clean water for communities, protecting Black lives or regulating guns, as Thursday's Supreme Court decision in New York State Rifle & Pistol Association, Inc., et al.

While reproductive care in the half-century since Roe has had its flaws -- the best care has too often been restricted to the wealthiest and whitest women -- it is nonetheless the safest it has ever been, and laws that restrict abortion will be a huge step backward.

Medical knowledge expanded, but pregnancy remained unnecessarily dangerous -- that is, until Roe reinstated a right to the medical care women had pursued for over 100 years.

Now, with Roe gone, abortion will likely go underground again in many states, and some doctors will be forced to put miscarrying patients' lives at risk while there's a fetal heartbeat.

But make no mistake, with Roe gone, women will die.

Alice Stewart: Overturning Roe is a victory for US democracy

The Supreme Court has delivered a landmark victory for the pro-life movement -- and an astounding victory for US democracy.

Now that the court has stepped out of the abortion business, it's time for democratically elected leaders to take up the mantle and protect those yet to be born.
