On Friday, The Supreme Court of the United States issued a landmark 6-3 ruling overturning both Roe v. Wade and Planned Parenthood v. Casey in its decision on Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization — a challenge to a Mississippi law greatly restricting the federal right to abortion.
“Roe was egregiously wrong from the start. Its reasoning was exceptionally weak, and the decision has had damaging consequences. And far from bringing about a national settlement of the abortion issue, Roe and Casey have enflamed debate and deepened division,” Alito wrote in his majority opinion. “It is time to heed the Constitution and return the issue of abortion to the people’s elected representatives.”
