27. Yes, clearly not under Roe v. Wade

And I don't think the SCOTUS overturns its own cases so lightly as these people think. Even conservative justices will see it as precedent. I recall a Con Law professor saying that they never have. The only case they admit were wrong are the Japanese internment cases, and they never have actually overruled them. (Fortunately no case with that issue should ever come up again).

Maybe some Scalia like justice can twist the words of Roe to allow this, but even though Rs are skilled at that, it would seem about impossible. Roe says the first trimester is totally protected.
