5 Ways To Protect Abortion Rights If The Supreme Court Overturns Roe



“Right now is a moment when people are shocked, grieving and angry,” Leah Greenberg, co-founder of the progressive organizing group Indivisible, told HuffPost. “We want to be sure that as part of processing, folks understand where and how they can fight back ― and where they can have an impact on what is happening, whether that is at the state level, at the electoral level, or in their community.”

Greenberg can speak to this with expertise because that’s roughly what happened after the election of President Donald Trump in November 2016, when Indivisible helped to lead a backlash that defeated many of Trump’s initiatives and eventually turned control of Congress and the White House back to the Democrats.

So what are the practical, concrete objectives now? Is there a way to protect abortion rights, at least for some people, when the Supreme Court has taken away the federal guarantee and there are no short-term prospects for changing its membership? The answer is yes, there are things that can be done. Here are a few:

1. Pass A Federal Law Codifying Roe

2. Change Laws, Win Elections In The States

3. Support Abortion Funds And Similar Nonprofits

4. Make More Use Of Executive Authority

5. Change The Supreme Court’s Composition
