My Turn: Why the hoopla in Hawaii?

The ranting across the nation in response to the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade makes no sense to me. Especially, the extreme response in Hawaii. Why didn’t our politicians simply say: “It doesn’t matter. Abortion is, and will continue to be, legal in Hawaii.” Yes, abortion has been a controversial issue for decades, largely due to the decision in Roe v. Wade. Had the Supreme Court gone the other way 50 years ago, state legislatures would have set whatever limits they thought were appropriate and responded to the will of their constituents.
