Looks like he is well on his way to becoming the 17th Chief Justice of the US Supreme Court...

I don't understand how he can become Chief Justice right away. One would think someone who has been on the bench already, who has expeirence, would be picked for Chief justice.
I also guess America will go back to the dark ages and back alley abortions, sooner than later, once Roe Vs Wade is overturned/reversed.
They will always have the option of going to states where it is legal. This was an option back in 1973 and will likely happen again.
Roe vs Wade will not overturn abortion. In fact, it never addressed the issue of those states where abortion was legal.
In 1973 when the case was decided, the ruling addressed the laws of states which prohibited abortion. Up to that time, about 14 states allowed abortion but Texas did not. In this case the plaintiff contested Texas's law because it prohibited abortion and the SC addressed this matter only. It did not address the legality of those states in which abortion had been legal. Therefore, if Roe vs Wade is overturned, the old laws in those 14 states will go back into the books.
The bottom line is that overturning Roe will actually legalized abortion again. And because all legal precedent had previously allowed abortion, this procedure will now be permanently legal.
Most Churches, including the Vatican continuously denounce abortions, however their message falls on deaf ears.
I think the UK also has a ban on abortions, or really strict rules governing it.
However, the 1967 Act does not extend to Northern Ireland, where abortion is still illegal.
