New Jersey Gov @PhilMurphyNJ announces the "Reproductive Freedom Act," legislation that will codify Roe v Wade & repeal some restrictions on abortion.

NJ is the first state to announce legislation to protect and expand access to abortion in the wake of RBG's death.

Reversing Roe isn't going to make abortion illegal. It's going to leave it up to the states.

What we'll be left with a patchwork of access where a person'a ability to get an abortion is determined by where they live and how much money they have to go somewhere else.
It's also worth noting that this is already happening, even w/ Roe intact.

Getting an abortion in Missouri is a totally different experience than getting one in New York for example. From waiting periods, insurance coverage barriers, state-mandated counseling, the list goes on.
