  • On June 24th, the United States Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade. In a historic decision, the Court declared that the constitutional right to abortion, upheld for nearly a half-century, no longer exists. This leaves abortion rights to be determined by states unless the U.S. Congress acts to legislate federal protection for abortion.

    While this is not unexpected because of the leaked draft of a majority opinion written by Justice Samuel Alito, the news is still an enormous shift that will have lasting repercussions for personal lives, businesses, and health care overall.

    13 states have "trigger" laws prohibiting abortion now that Roe has been overturned. As many as 14 additional states had abortion bans that predated Roe v. Wade and are likely to move towards banning abortions. Most experts agree that between 24 and 27 States are likely to have bans or significant restrictions on abortions within the next few months.
