The Supreme Court ruled on Friday to overturn Roe w. Wade, which completely shocked the country.
The states received their power back to decide whether or not abortion is legal. It was a constitutionally protected federal right, but now the abortion access will depend on where a person lives across the United States.
“This is one of the most important decisions the Supreme Court has handed down in this century.” Kate Shaw, an ABC News contributor and professor of law at Cardozo Law School said. ” I believe this will definitely have a seismic impact on women’s lives and the choices they can make in the course of the country.”
