The possible over-turning of the well known 1973 ruling of Roe vs. Wade (giving women in the United States the fundamental right to choose whether to have abortions without excessive federal restrictions) has taken center stage after a Supreme Court leaked draft opinion hit the presses.
We recently asked SheSpeaks members how they feel about the potential to overturn the Roe vs. Wade ruling and their Mid-Term election plans. And as we trudge through the nonstop news cycle, we also asked if you plan on taking a break for a much-needed vacation this summer.
Over 1,000 of you weighed in on these issues and the results were very interesting.
Some key take-aways on the potential of Roe vs. Wade being overturned:
going to jekyll island for a fashion photo shoot and a beach trip with my SO
Definitely looking for life to be a little bit simpler this summer.
64% of respondents say they do not want Roe vs. Wade, to be overturned and of this group - 67% said the Supreme Court decision will impact who they vote for in the Mid-Terms in November. It will be interesting to see if the turn out for mid-term elections are higher than usual.
I wish more were sure to vote in the mid-terms, so important
"20% of respondents would like to see Roe vs. Wade overturned (removing current abortion rights), but of those 20% only 36% said that the decision whether to overturn Roe vs. Wade or keep it in place would have an impact on who they vote for in the Mid-Terms this November." - I wonder why the rest of the respondents in this group don't think it will impact who they vote for. Is it because it's a non-issue to them or may they are so sure of their candidate's view that they don't have to consider who to vote for based on this. Interesting insights for sure!
I really enjoy seeing these insights. Some surprised me and others did not. It's interesting to see how many people are aware of the Roe vs. Wade Supreme Court draft decision leak. It's also interesting to see summer vacation plans
