US Supreme Court overturns Roe v Wade, eliminating abortion rights

The United States Supreme Court voted to overturn Roe v Wade on Friday, eliminating the constitutional right to an abortion, and leaving the question of abortion rights to the states.

The United States Supreme Court voted to overturn Roe v Wade on Friday, eliminating the constitutional right to an abortion, and leaving the question of abortion rights to the states.

This overruling comes from the court’s decision on Dobb’s v Jackson Women’s Health Organization, upholding the Mississippi law that bans abortions after 15 weeks.

In the majority opinion, the court stated the previous ruling on Roe v Wade was “egregiously wrong in determining a constitutional right to an abortion.”

With this new ruling, it will now be up to individual states to determine the right to abortion. Currently, a plethora of states already have legislation in place, otherwise known as “Trigger Laws,” that limit access to or ban abortion altogether, which are set up to become law if/when Roe v Wade is overturned.
