The Supreme Court in a 6-3 decision on Friday overturned Roe v. Wade, the landmark ruling that established the constitutional right to abortion in the U.S. in 1973.

 

The court’s controversial but expected ruling gives individual states the power to set their own abortion laws without concern of running afoul of Roe, which had permitted abortions during the first two trimesters of pregnancy.

 

Almost half the states are expected to outlaw or severely restrict abortion as a result of the Supreme Court’s decision, which is related to a highly restrictive new Mississippi abortion law.

 

Other states plan to maintain more liberal rules governing the termination of pregnancies.

Here are the states set to ban or severely limit abortion access now that Roe v. Wade is overturned

  • The overturning of Roe v. Wade is set to almost immediately remake how access to abortion looks in America.
  • Twenty-two states had laws or constitutional amendments that were already in place which could be quickly used to try to ban abortion.
  • The laws include bans on abortion that were already in place in a number of states before the Supreme Court’s 1973 decision in Roe protected abortion rights.

Justice Thomas says the Supreme Court should reconsider rulings that protect access to contraception and same-sex marriage as the court overturns Roe v. Wade

 

In a concurring opinion with the Supreme Court's Friday ruling to overturn the precedent set in Roe v. Wade, Justice Clarence Thomas said the court should reconsider rulings that protect access to contraception, same-sex relationships, and same-sex marriage.

The Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade on Friday, with Justice Samuel Alito penning an opinion in favor of Mississippi in Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health.

Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas on Friday called for overturning the constitutional rights the court had affirmed for access to contraceptives and LGBTQ rights in an opinion concurring with the majority to decision to overturn Roe v. Wade.

 

In his separate opinion, Thomas acknowledged that Friday’s decision does not directly affect any rights besides abortion. But he argued that the constitution’s Due Process Clause does not secure a right to an abortion or any other substantive rights, and he urged the court to apply that reasoning to other landmark cases.

 

Thomas wrote, “In future cases, we should reconsider all of this Court’s substantive due process precedents, including Griswold, Lawrence, and Obergefell.”

Again many poor women won't be able to afford the travel. FACT.

A very common reason for wanting an abortion is being too poor to raise the child.

FACT

So many poor women will be forced to go through pregnancies they don't want or to seek medically unsafe at home remedies.

And poor single women will be consigned to a life of poverty raising a child as a single mom and unable to afford child care so they can work.

It's not deflection. I wanted to know whether your opposition to abortion was absolute. Now, you have made it clear that you at least in part disagree with the court ruling which fails to enshrine the right to abortion under those circumstances.

You knew what my position is when I called you out for your extreme position on terminating a pregnancy a day prior to the due date - on the Gay People in Thailand Thread before the World News Forum was reactivated.

People can have a range of personal views on abortion rights and still be informed enough to know that all the fault lies with the initial ruling that was based on a load of nothing.
