The Overdue Fall of Roe v. Wade

Breaking News

Nothing is normal about the way the public learned this week that Roe v. Wade is likely to be overturned by the Supreme Court, but then again, nothing is normal about taking the life of an unborn child. 

Roe v. Wade is the contentious 1973 high court ruling that legalized abortion nationwide.

In a leaked draft opinion in the case of Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, Justice Samuel Alito wrote, “Roe was egregiously wrong from the start. Its reasoning was exceptionally weak, and the decision has had damaging consequences.” 

Alito adds that “far from bringing about a national settlement of the abortion issue, Roe and [Planned Parenthood v.] Casey have enflamed debate and deepened division.”
