Do you think overturning Roe v Wade will eventually lead to the second US civil war?

Particularly if the right wing also tries to impose their forced birth will upon blue states?

No. Though women will feel sidelined and may create a movement big enough to shake the walls of the White House.
I hope they do. Women may even leave the state they live in (and take their men folk with them) if that state adopts the new law.
Thus destroying the economies of those states

I seriously doubt there will be another civil war but it will certainly deepen the divide between Red and Blue States and there may be some violence, Women will certainly protest loudly. The reality for the Pro-Lifer's is that the majority of Americans support the Right to abortions so this only goes to show the deep disparity between the Right's ideology and our citizens. By turning towards non-secularism and Religion, the Right is alienating itself from the very people they think support them and the Left should exploit this for all it's worth!

@spjennifer I totally agree with the majority of what you have said. I remain concerned with so much racial violence and hatefulness that seems to get worse by the day.
spjennifer · 56-60, T
@Grateful4you Agreed and the debasement of Women's Rights has gone right along with that too but many of those who think that way are not so young and will soon enough pass. The younger generations seem to be more conciliatory and less interested in religion so hopefully things will change for the better with time 😊

@Grateful4you The net result is that the anti-abortion gang is saving the potential lives of the groups that they claim to "hate" while the pro-abortion gang is engaged in a mass genocide of the groups they claim to "love."
On abortion, clearly the unspoken right wing agenda is a full ban. This talk of "leave it to the states" is a self-serving lie. And their full ban on abortion will be less successful than Prohibition.

Here's a recent demographic poll. A higher percentage of women support choice than men, especially women of child bearing age.

Abortions in the US are on a long term decrease


What does the public think?


The public wants to keep abortions legal.

Reminiscent of Putin lying about planning to invade Ukraine, while massing troops on their border to invade Ukraine.

Maybe the right wing isn't even hiding it at all:

I don't believe we have in place what's necessary for a civil war, honestly. Communication is instant, police forces are nearly military platoons and we have a much stronger federal government with a decidedly more expansive reach.

Add to that the general nonchalance and laziness of the typical American, and we might put it out as a video game but that's probably as far as we'd go. Unless you offered a tax credit or free Starbucks. Then your average citizen is all-in.
That, coupled with the racism and homophobia of the far right, is going to do it, sooner rather than later.

unlikely but i hope it leads to a mass exodus of women.

@Elessar States, Einstein. And people make up the states and vote in elections. Duh.
Elessar · 26-30, M
@RedBaron Which are territories. Do you suffer from this superiority complex also if I refer to cars as "vehicles", or are you just too dense to figure out the difference between electoral college and popular vote?

Is the baby formula shortage part of the pushback against the repeal of Roe v. Wade? By restricting the supply of baby formula is it showing that additional babies won't have any to feed them during their early months?

Some are trying to blame the shortage on supply issues from overseas. How stupid (or greedy) were the dummies who outsourced all of the critical items to places like China? How in the hell could we ever get in a war with them when the US doesn't make anything? Will we have to import military ammo from China to fight China?

I'm British but I tend to think not. In America, most political violence and radicalism comes from the right.
@Burnley123 Sadly, you're right. The left doesn't believe in violence, which is why the right keeps putting the left down.
No, it will just go back to the way it was before, women dying from backyard abortionists.
CountScrofula · 41-45, M
There's going to be a lot more of this and inevitable outcome is violence.
FukFaceWillie · 46-50, M
We in Cali will ignore the federal law, so, yes.
jehova · 31-35, M
@FukFaceWillie New York will do that too!
BohemianBoo · 18-21, M
No, the territories are too mixed to have another civil war. Last time it was North vs South. This would be rural counties vs urban counties. Forming a legit military would be impossible.
Plus, urban counties have way more firepower than rural ones. It would be over quickly, if it somehow started.
Burnley123 · 41-45, M
Honestly, one way or another, I don't think that the Republicans will succeed in imposing an abortion ban on Democrat-run states. It would be an over-reach and would backfire.
ViciDraco · 36-40, M
I do not believe there will be a new civil war. That requires a level of organization capable of evading US intelligence and military power.
You can't have a second civil war. Its unfeasible and militarily impossible.

@DavidT8899
I truly hope not. But it will be a [b]huge[/b] problem.
Ferric67 · M
If there will ever be another American civil war, it will not be over Roe vs Wade
@Ferric67 what and who do you think will instigate it?
Ferric67 · M
@BreadAndCircuses I don't even want to think such negativity...and if we're to ever happen, I sure hope I won't be alive to experience it.

We, as a species, need to evolved to a higher enlightened state. Plain and simple, we need less war and conflict....and a better understanding of each other which would lead to an accepting cohabitation of our planet.
Grateful4you · 70-79, M
Probably the most tragic and criminal acts I've seen in more decades than I can remember. This is going to be a real disaster.
tacobell · 26-30, M
Naw but it seems like people are pushing for this
@tacobell which groups do you think are pushing for it?
tacobell · 26-30, M
@BreadAndCircuses tbh people that want to see the USA fall. I wouldn't be surprised if china has something do with the political unrest
