ro, america. more than half of the 50 states are expected to quickly ban or severely restrict abortion. that's likely to galvanized democrats who want to keep abortion available across the country. a position recent polls suggest is supported by a strong majority of americans. jim robin ald is a lawyer and a u. s. presidential historian, i spoke to him earlier and asked what this supreme court ruling means for women in the united states. well, thank you for having me. it is a radical decision. this is a complete change of law that has existed for 50 years. given women the right to choose how they deal with the pregnancy. and so this has enormous consequences. it also has consequences well beyond abortion as now attacks will come against same
