Opinion | In post-Roe America, weird changes might be coming to abortion law

As states continue to tackle abortion law, post-Roe America looks more and more like Crazy Town. From South Carolina, where some legislators seek to codify abortion as homicide, to states such as Ohio, where a proposed constitutional amendment would seemingly allow unfettered access to nearly any reproductive procedure until fetal “viability,” it’s increasingly obvious that lawmakers are operating well above their pay grades.

Let’s first be clear that South Carolina is an outlier. The pro-life movement has not called for punishing women. The South Carolina proposal, which has already lost several sponsors, isn’t pro-life at all.

Even before the Supreme Court’s reversal of Roe v. Wade last June, a consortium of more than 70 pro-life leaders sent a joint letter to state legislators urging them to reject policies and laws that would punish women who have abortions. Instead, they urged compassion, saying “we must ensure that the laws we advance to protect unborn children do not harm their mothers.”
