What Would the World Be Like Without Roe V. Wade?

Would a post-Roe world look like a pre-Roe world, or have changes in medicine, technology and culture since 1973 permanently changed the landscape?

"Abortion in Australia is a subject of state law rather than national law. The grounds on which abortion is permitted in Australia vary from state to state. In every state, abortion is legal to protect the life and health of a woman, though each state has a different definition."

"A legal precedent concerning the legality of abortion was set in Australia in 1969, by the Menhennitt ruling in the Victorian Supreme Court case R v Davidson, which held that abortion was lawfully justified if "necessary to preserve the physical or mental health of the woman concerned, provided that the danger involved in the abortion did not outweigh the danger which the abortion was designed to prevent."
The ruling was later largely adopted by courts in New South Wales, Queensland and was influential in some other states. Over time this has come to be broadly defined so as to include the mental health of the woman, to which an unwanted pregnancy is interpreted as clinically injurious."

Roe V. Wade did not influence us here.

The world will be fine, it is just the women of the United States that would suffer.

Thanks Freya - I can't imagine what women suffered before Roe vs Wade, horrible I'm sure.

Before Roe v. Wade, it was horrific. Women will always find a way to abort an unwanted fetus. If you have money, no problem. However, most women don't have money to travel, much less for an abortion. Mexico is always an answer, but don't count on cleanliness like they have here in the States. Bottom line; more women will die, more women will get infections that render them sterile, and more women will live in situations they cannot get out of. It' would put women back to second class status.
