Revisiting the Roe v Wade Decision


In a recent Supreme Court decision, the Court overturned the decision in Roe versus Wade and we have seen a lot of protests going on. However, not a lot of people are well-versed in the Roe v Wade decision. It is up to us to tell you about it.

The Story of Roe v Wade

The story of Roe v Wade is one that started when a woman challenged the criminal abortion laws in the State of Texas. Under the pseudonym, Jane Row, Norma McCorvey challenged the state law that forbade abortion as unconstitutional. The only known exception, in that case, is when the mother’s life is in danger.

On the other side, we have the district attorney for Dallas County, Henry Wade, who was defending the anti-abortion law in the State.

During that time, Jane Roe was pregnant but she claimed that it was the product of rape. She filed a case and claimed that she was raped. The case was rejected and Roe gave birth to a baby.

The Case Progress

The case progressed when Roe appealed her case alongside that of another woman, a 20-year-old woman from Georgia. In their arguments, they stated that abortion laws in Texas and Georgia went against the US Constitution because they infringed a woman’s right to privacy. Once decided, the Court found that governments lacked the power to prohibit abortions. The decision was clear that a woman’s right to terminate her pregnancy was protected by the US constitution.

Roe v Wade Today

Before the decision to overturn the case, Roe v Wade was the landmark case that set the tone for abortion laws and how it is implemented today. 

With the overturn, what happened now in terms of abortion laws in States? How about abortion in the State of Michigan? 

In the coming articles, we will look at how the case of Roe v Wade and its reversal will affect the United States and why it is important to show your voice against it or for it.
