Will the Supreme Court Overturn Roe or Prop It Up with a Compromise?

On Wednesday, the Supreme Court heard oral argument in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, the second of two major cases this term involving abortion. Since the Roe v. Wade decision in 1973, with some modifications in Planned Parenthood v. Casey in 1992, the Court has considered abortion a right protected by the Constitution. Following the Court’s decisive rightward shift last year, observers expected it would soon take a swipe at Roe or even overturn it. Wednesday’s oral argument seemed to confirm that expectation.

If the Supreme Court won’t act to protect abortion, we can

In yet another week without a Supreme Court decision on Texas’ six-week abortion ban, SB 8, abortion justice advocates aren’t taking our eyes off the ball just yet. Tomorrow, Dec. 1, the court will hear arguments regarding a Mississippi 15-week abortion ban in a direct challenge to Roe v. Wade. Lower courts prohibited the ban from going into effect, but the Supreme Court decided to accept the case and will consider “whether all pre-viability prohibitions on elective abortion are unconstitutional.”

Here's what's at risk if Kentucky loses safe access to abortion | Opinion

It is no secret that abortion restrictions complicate care for pregnant people. And the six week ban in Texas is further demonstrating how dangerous politicizing abortion can be when medical decisions are put in the hands of radicalized politicians. Not only are pregnant people being denied the right to bodily autonomy, patients in Texas with at-risk-pregnancies are forced to wait for preventable complications to turn into potentially life-threatening medical crises before being provided basic health care.

Ask PolitiFact: Did the Supreme Court overturn Roe v. Wade?

Question: Did the Supreme Court overturn Roe vs. Wade?. Answer: As a legal matter, no.
