Anti-abortion advocate on how the Roe v. Wade decision legally affects Hawaiʻi
The country is still processing the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision last week to overturn Roe v. Wade, the landmark case that granted the constitutional right to abortion for about 50 years. Reactions run the gamut from sorrow to fear to rage at a rally on Friday at the Prince Kūhiō Federal Building in Honolulu.
There’s also a segment of the population that applauded the action, some for personal and religious reasons, others for legal ones. Jim Hochberg is an Oʻahu attorney and president of Hawaii Family Advocates, a Christian nonprofit that opposes abortion. He sat down with The Conversation to talk about how the decision legally affects Hawaiʻi.
