What is Rowe v. Wade?
The 1973 case of Roe v. Wade established american women's right to abortion (bodily autonomy) to guarantee that people of all genders can "have a plan to have children" – ready to become parents again.
There are still opponents in the future, and there are extremely strict weekly limits (such as the six weeks passed by Texas), but they cannot exceed the "Roy v. Wade" guarantee of abortion and women's bodily autonomy.

Why was Rowe v. Wade overturned?

Wade, did — Trump hand-picked three conservative Supreme Court justices, including Joan Ruth Bader Ginsburg, the RBG who replaced American human rights and women's autonomy, and took over as Amy Coney Barrett, who is openly anti-abortion.

The United States has not enshrined the right to abortion in the Constitution or into law. For half a century, roe v. Wade has been relied upon as a precedent.
Since 13 states in the United States are bound to the "trigger ban" of Roe v. Wade, after the "Roe v. Wade" case is overturned, the anti-abortion rules of these 13 states will automatically take effect. The 13 states include: Arizona, Idaho, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, South Dakota, North Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Wyoming, Utah, etc.
In addition, three-quarters of those seeking abortion in the United States are among the "low-income groups", a move that will have the greatest impact on economic vulnerability.
What are the current laws and regulations in Taiwan that protect abortion?
Under Our Eugenics Health Care Act, abortion is "conditionally" legal.
Under article 288 of the Penal Code, a woman who has an abortion is liable for criminal liability, except to prevent danger to life and disease. Later, article 9 of the Eugenic Health Care Act of the special law guaranteed that abortion could be performed in certain circumstances, such as fetal malformations, avoidance of genetic diseases, sexual assault on pregnancy, or pregnancy and childbirth that would affect mental health and family life.
Taiwan stipulates that the number of weeks of pregnancy that a woman can undergo an abortion must be within 24 weeks (Article 15 of the Enforcement Rules of the Eugenics Health Care Act), which is similar to the previous rule in most U.S. states. In Northern Europe, women's body rights and interests are more protected.

We must believe that we always have strength
Remember, we will always have the strength, and we will always be able to fight big with small.
Like the late Ginsburg Justice of the American RBG, a thin woman can also bring many revolutions at the constitutional level.
During her tenure as a justice, she promoted the construction of an equal structure that the United States now naturally depends on, as a bridge between liberals and conservatives, leading justices to set a constitutional model, so that men and women in American society do not have to be bound by gender roles, and have equal work rights and benefits guaranteed by law.
We still have her strong spirit, and we have not really lost her.
Even if the times are uncertain, we still have the strength to continue to bring about change and carry on bravely.
