“Women will occupy a different place in American society,” Moran said, adding that there would be two different “regimes” in the country. He said there would be one part of the country where abortion is illegal and another where women will have access and the ability to choose to have an abortion. He added that it would further divide the country and result in “two Americas for women.”

Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel joined NBC’s Chuck Todd on Sunday to discuss the leaked opinion and the abortion laws in her state. She said that the opinion would have a “chilling effect” on women’s healthcare.
Todd asked Nessel about a situation where a doctor identifies a miscarriage and whether they might feel that they are “committing a crime” by performing the “procedure that’s necessary.”
“Doctors will be so afraid that there will be investigations into these procedures,” adding that in many instances, when these procedures are performed, “there is no viability.”
“They’ll be so concerned that these cases will be investigated, it will have a chilling effect and you won’t have basic medical health care that is required for women not to have extreme health problems or even die. Doctors simply are not going to perform those procedures anymore because they don’t want to go to prison for it,” she said.
