Roe v. Wade, the land­mark 1973 Supreme Court deci­sion which estab­lished a con­sti­tu­tion­al right to abor­tion is under attack. The Supreme Court with its super-con­ser­v­a­tive major­i­ty is poised to over­turn Roe. Accord­ing to an edi­to­r­i­al in Against the Cur­rent: Poll after poll reveals that the right to abor­tion care actu­al­ly has more pop­u­lar sup­port today than when Roe v. Wade was decid­ed. If that right can be muti­lat­ed now, prece­dent and pub­lic opin­ion be damned, then no rights are secure from reac­tionary assault. For right-wing sharks get­ting rid of Roe is blood in the water.” The New York Times esti­mates more than 20 states are expect­ed to ban or sub­stan­tial­ly restrict abor­tion if the Supreme Court per­mits it.” How­ev­er, some states like Col­orado are going in the oppo­site direc­tion, pass­ing leg­is­la­tion legal­iz­ing the right to an abortion.
