Michelle Oberman spoke with the New York Times about what a post Roe v. Wade America would look like.
“Common forms of abortion support will become suspect: providing financial assistance, transportation or even advice. Depending upon the jurisdiction, such assistance will risk prosecution as an accomplice to illegal abortion, and perhaps even homicide.
But that’s just the beginning. If states deem embryos and fetuses “children,” and pregnant patients “mothers,” the man who impregnates becomes a “father” who owes a duty to support and care for the fetus. Failure by either “parent” to protect the pregnancy (by avoiding abortion or even alcohol exposure) becomes child neglect.”
