The pro-abortion movement received a massive victory from the Supreme Court yesterday in striking down common sense regulations on abortion clinics to ensure they protect women’s health. After leaving women’s hung out to dry, what’s the next step for abortion advocates?
According to abortion activist Sandra Fluke, the next step is forcing Americans to pay for abortions. Fluke outlined a number of scenarios in an interview where Americas might be forced to fund abortions — via Medicaid, for abortions for women in the armed forces and forcing Americans to pay for abortions view their health insurance premiums.
ALEXANDER: So abortion rights advocates scored obviously what’s viewed widely as a big victory today. Where does the fight for reproductive rights go from here?

FLUKE: Well, I’m so glad you asked because this is a huge victory for the women of Texas and so many states that were really suffering under these trapped laws. But we have an ongoing fight in many states, especially around a affordability. This is about making the right to reproductive access a reality in practice, not just on paper. And if you can’t afford to exercise this right, it’s really not as meaningful to you. So for women who are in the military, women who receive medicaid, and even women who live in states where they can’t afford or are not allowed to buy insurance that covers abortion on their state exchanges, they have major barriers to access. And that’s our next fight.
