Abortion Activists Are Winning


December 27, 2024


The Supreme Court’s decision in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, which overturned Roe, “awoke a groundswell of outrage of people who didn’t want to see this basic human right get taken away,” Kimberly Inez McGuire, the executive director of Urge: Unite for Reproductive & Gender Equity, told Newsweek.

“That outrage translated into turnout at the polls,” McGuire said. And in every state where abortion was on the ballot, she said people “came out in droves and were so clear [that] abortion should not be a crime.”
