A UPenn professor decided to go there during a segment on MSNBC with a claim that women would be imprisoned for miscarriages if Roe v. Wade is overturned. Dorothy Roberts is a professor of law and sociology at the University of Pennsylvania. She made the extreme claim during a discussion on whether a conservative Supreme Court could overturn Roe v. Wade. She also claimed women were imprisoned for stillbirths and miscarriages before Roe v. Wade.
The left is going ballistic over the Supreme Court pick coming on Monday of next week. The video below is just one of many fear mongering attempts by the left…
WOULD IT NOT BE THAT IF ROE V. WADE IS OVERTURNED, THE ABORTION DECISION GOES BACK TO THE STATES?
IF ROE V. WADE IS OVERTURNED:
She argued that President Donald Trump’s pick to succeed Justice Anthony Kennedy would usher in a conservative majority:
“It’s a very thin line between putting a woman in prison for a stillbirth or a miscarriage that she’s blamed for—for something she did during her pregnancy—and criminalizing abortions,” Roberts claimed. “So we’re already at that point, and I agree with Jennifer that women and others have to protest against this continued criminalization of women, harms to our health, and what I think is misogynistic laws against women.”
MSNBC host Ali Velshi asked Roberts about a tweet she wrote saying women would be under fire from all these different directions if the Supreme Court overturned Roe. Roberts expressed concern about the “onslaught on women’s access to abortion” that could occur were a conservative justice to take Kennedy’s place.
