Regarding the upcoming Supreme Court nominee and the issue of overturning Roe v. Wade:
This whole argument should come down to the fundamental rationale that only women should be involved in making or overturning a law that only applies to a woman. Regardless of how all the men feel about abortion (and what drives that side of the issue is another discussion altogether), none of them will ever be in the shoes of a woman and have to make that difficult decision.
Therefore, it is deeply troubling that mostly men will make the decision on potentially overturning the Roe v. Wade ruling.
