On this anniversary, many opponents of abortion feel momentum is on their side.  Dan McConchie is with Americans United for Life:

(McConchie) “I absolutely think that one day Roe will be overturned.  The interesting fact is the trend of the views of the American people is more and more pro-life.”

He says states have found ways to he enact restrictions.  Their most recent annual list ranking the states finds the best, from their perspective, to be Louisiana, then Oklahoma.  Arizona is most improved.

Pro-choice law professor Melissa Murray at UC-Berkeley says, in her opinion, this is not just about abortion, but about equality.

(Murray) “In the years after Roe v. Wade, there was a huge uptick in women going to college and going on to professional and graduate school.  And do I think there’s a direct correlation?  I do.”
