Who Relies on Roe?

The Washington Post ran a front-page story yesterday that turned both conservative and liberal heads.  It was headlined:  “Alito Signals Reluctance to Overturn Roe v. Wade.”

Senators Joe Lieberman (D.-Conn.) and Susan Collins (R..-Maine) emerged from their individual meetings with Alito, the paper reported, suspecting Alito was not inclined to overturn the decision that legalized abortion nationwide. 

“He basically said … that Roe was precedent on which people—a  lot of people—relied, and been precedent for decades and therefore deserved great respect,” said Lieberman. 

This begs a question: Who is it that relies on Roe that it deserves such respect?  Professional abortionists?
