The Supreme Court of US overturned Roe V Wade and now holds that abortion cannot be protected by the constitution.
This is the most consequential Supreme Court decision in decades.
It will transform the landscape of women’s reproductive health in America.
Going forward, abortion rights will be determined by states, unless Congress acts.
The Supreme court vote was 5-4 in favor of overturning Roe.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi called the ruling “such an insult, a slap in the face to women.”
At least 21 states have laws or constitutional amendments already in place that would make them certain to attempt to ban abortion as quickly as possible.
