After the Texas ruling, Trump said, "if Scalia was replaced by me... it would have been the opposite." Trump hopes to name "as many as five" Supreme Court Justices and declared "I will appoint judges that will be pro-life" - chosen by the right-wing Federalist Society.
Trump's judges would overturn Roe v. Wade and criminalize abortion, sending OB/GYNs to jail for murder - and possibly their women patients too.
And state and local Republican politicians are even fiercer in their opposition to abortion than Trump and will not be deterred by this Supreme Court ruling. Instead, they will continue to pass laws and regulations to cut funding for Planned Parenthood, harass clinics, and coerce women into forced childbirth, even in cases of rape and incest.
So there is really only one way to stop them: by defeating every anti-abortion Republican from Donald Trump down to local offices.
