In a press statement published at the Planned Parenthood website, the groups say their announcement of the special standard "comes after President Trump promised to appoint only biased justices who will overturn Roe v. Wade and strike down the Affordable Care Act".
"It's a very thin line between putting a woman in prison for a stillbirth or a miscarriage that she's blamed for-for something she did during her pregnancy-and criminalizing abortions", Roberts claimed. If neither senator breaks, Democrats still believe that they can drive down public support for the nominee by focusing on threats to Roe, gay rights, the ACA, or environmental regulation - even in Indiana, North Dakota and West Virginia, ruby-red states whose Democratic senators backed Trump's first Supreme Court nominee, Neil M. Gorsuch.

MA has had a law on the books since the 19th century that criminalizes abortion - even though it's basically unenforceable because of Roe v. Wade.
Republicans followed Reid's lead and extended his jettisoning of the two-third nominating requirement to the Supreme Court. One of these will have to get to the Supreme Court to enable a majority to overturn Roe.
For most activists in the pro-life movement, a mere reversal of Roe was not what they wanted anyway, because they knew that reversing Roe would not end legalized abortion in the United States. It will just be a state issue instead of a federal issue as it always should have been.
