Roe v. Wade: What’s The Big Deal?
Many were shaken when Roe v. Wade was overturned in June 2022. You may ask why this is.
Originally in 1973, Roe v. Wade was a Supreme Court decision that stated it was a woman’s constitutional right to receive an elective abortion without needing a life-threatening diagnosis behind her decision.
Then, in 2022 the Court reversed this ruling. The Court stated it should be up to each state to decide their abortion regulations, handing the power back to the people.
When this new ruling was announced, many questioned if their right to emergency medical interventions would be infringed upon for unexpected pregnancy complications. However, thankfully this is not the case.
States still legally protect the right to medical intervention to save a woman’s life. Additionally, this letter from the Health Secretary of Health and Human Services also states that no matter what the abortion laws of the territory, life-saving care is still legal for women.
