Access to contraceptives is absolutely next -- nothing can convince me otherwise. And to be fair: some have already stated that certain contraceptives, and access to them, is exactly what they intend to discuss and fight next . . . so really, what's to discuss in terms of contraceptives being open for debate?

Now, what it will turn out to be--that's another question.

I imagine it will be a gradual chipping away much in the same way we got to the overturning of Roe. So, maybe, starting off with restricting or rescinding access to Plan B/Morning-After Pill, then IUDs and other long-term options, perhaps putting age restrictions or added layers of redtape in order to gain access to any contraceptive . . .

I don't see it being a quick and complete revocation but I do wonder what contraception, and reproductive rights as a whole, will look like in the US 50 years from now.
