What exactly does this mean?

I think Roe v. Wade was a really crummy decision. Is that enough of a stance against abortion for me to join?

The most straightforward way I can see to restrict it is to overturn the two abortion decisions we’ve had in the last 10 years. That’ll make it more restrictive than it is now.
