Historic Dates for Humanity

While both of those examples are not as explicit of steps in human progress as the are widely accepted to be, Roe v Wade is not particularly significant at all. It simply means states have a choice now. Following the slavery analogy, the overturning of Roe v Wade is more equivalent to the expiration of the unconstitutional protection for the Transatlantic Slave Trade in 1808. A major step, yes, but how many people even know the specifics of that decision today?

And even when we eventually ban abortion in America, we still have the rest of the world to worry about, including our close allies in western Europe, who are showing no signs of even considering banning abortion. I hate to say it, but overturning Roe was by far the easiest step in this journey.

The Emancipation Proclamation freed all slaves in the confederate states.

Not sure what defines the end of the holocaust, but when it was ended, Jews were no longer placed in camps and killed, experimented on, or worked to death.

Overturning Roe v Wade made it so states weren’t obligated to allow abortion.

It was a huge step, but I would argue still significantly less significant than the others.

Abortion in America has killed way more people than the Nazis ever did.

And when abortion is ended, you can argue it will be more significant than the holocaust ending.

But as it stands, someone is at most a 4-hour flight away from being able to kill their child.

Abortion on demand will essentially be ending in half of US states. And if some make good on their promise to prosecute those who seek abortions in other states, it'll dramatically cut down on the gross numbers.
