Since a leaked draft decision made clear that the fall of Roe v. Wade was more of a when than an if, clinics operating in states with trigger laws and pre-Roe abortion bans have existed in a state of terrible suspense. Few administrators were caught off guard — the team at CHOICES has been planning for this since Amy Coney Barrett’s rushed confirmation hearing just before the 2020 election — but now, the legal status of abortion in these states could change on a dime. Cruelly, the Supreme Court shares what days it will release opinions (usually Monday and Wednesday, and occasionally on Tuesday and Thursday), but doesn’t give notice as to which decisions it’ll release on which day. Abortion-rights supporters have spent the mornings of decision days refreshing the Court’s website in a haze of dread. Head to the link in bio for an insight into how abortion clinic staffers in trigger-ban states are dealing with the uncertainty and stress.
