If Roe v. Wade is ultimately overturned, Maryland must become a sanctuary state for abortion

May 4, 2022

Wade and send the issue of abortion access back to the states — as promised by a leaked draft opinion obtained and published Monday by Politico — roughly half of the U.S. would act swiftly to end or significantly restrict the procedure. It would be a devastating rollback of reproductive rights affecting the country as a whole, through increased poverty, maternal mortality, reliance on social safety nets and poor socioeconomic outcomes for thousands of children.
