Roe v. Wade: Supreme Court Overturns Landmark Ruling Protecting Abortion Rights

E-mail Print PDF
Roe v Wade overturned

The Supreme Court struck down Roe v. Wade and Casey v. Planned Parenthood in a 5-1-3 decision on Friday, dismantling the decades-old precedent that protected abortion rights and giving states the go-ahead to dramatically limit access to reproductive health care.

The ruling in the Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization case, written by Justice Samuel Alito, was not a surprise. A draft ruling was leaked to Politico and published in early May. Reports indicated at the time that fellow conservative justices Clarence Thomas, Brett Kavanaugh, Neil Gorsuch and Amy Coney Barrett also supported the decision, while Chief Justice John Roberts favored a narrower approach. The final ruling is a hews closely to the leaked draft.

“We hold that Roe and Casey must be overruled,” Alito wrote for the majority. “The Constitution makes no reference to abortion, and no such right is implicitly protected by any constitutional provision, including the one on which the defenders of Roe and Casey now chiefly rely—the Due Process Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment.”

TVNL Comment: This is a shameful day in America. Thr fanatical religious right is now in charge.  Gay marriage is next. So is contraception. Rape and  incest have been legalized,
