8. Over? Not quite IMHO

However, the extent to which it can be limited has got to be addressed (and will be addressed) by SCOTUS. Once SCOTUS opened the door for restrictions as long as they don't create an "undue burden", lawmakers have taken that and found so many *creative* ways to limit and/or frustrate women from getting abortions to the degree that, unless you are wealthy or otherwise connected, the right to choose as given under Roe V. Wade has been very nearly legislated out of existence as a practical matter in some (mostly deep "red" areas of the country. The most insidious of these limitations are so-called "TRAP" laws that force a bunch of unnecessary regulations on abortion providers as a means of shutting many of them down. Hopefully, SCOTUS starts by knocking Texas' recent spate of anti-choice laws. Next step is cleaning as many anti-choicers out of state legislatures as possible and replacing them with pro-choicers (or at least people not interested in pushing more restrictions).
