Bruen decided that the constitution means what it says and that there is a federal law that guarantees our right to self defense.
Dobbs decided that the constitution means what it says and there is nothing in it that grants a federal “right” to an abortion.
This lead to the humorous situation of people screaming that the states should be able to and at the same time screaming that the states shouldn’t be able to. Often times in the same breath.
When Roe v. Wade was overturned there were a number of trigger laws that went into effect. Arizona had such a law and on Friday it went into efect.
I don’t know what limits the AZ ban puts on abortion, I’m not about to believe anything I read in the media.
Utah’s trigger law, banning abortions in the state, went into effect Friday night after the U.S. Supreme Court announced its reversal of Roe v. Wade, the nearly 50-year-old decision that protected a woman’s right to an abortion. The suit asks the court to declare the state’s abortion ban invalid, alleging that it violates rights given to Utahns in the state’s constitution.

This is the way it is suppose to be done. On a state by state basis. I know that NY, MA, CA and a bunch of other liberal states will put abortion till the end of the 4th (not typo) trimester in place. Other places will put bans in place starting at conception. That is the wonder of our Republic. We have the ability to test different ideas politic in small before committing to them in large.
The pro-life battle now moves to the state and local levels. I expect it will be an uphill battle in most places. There will be battles.
Those battles are now happening where it should happen. At the state level.
I will point out that PP immediately went looking for more judges to make a ruling in their favor, having lost the battle with the public. This is still the right way to do it.
