    the country as a whole isn't that far from where it was before Roe was decided.

    Not only are there numerous restrictive state laws across the country, but there are also large (if not heavily populated) areas of the country where the law is moot. In those states, they have made it so difficult or dangerous to provide a full range of women's health services that there is no abortion provider available for hundreds of miles around.

    Back before Roe, women who could afford it could travel to one of several states where abortion was legal, but those who couldn't travel were out of luck. That's pretty much where they are now, again.

    "The only thing we have to fear is fear itself."........ "The test of our progress is not whether we add more to the abundance of those who have much; it is whether we provide enough for those who have too little." (yeah, same guy.)
