In 2022, the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade, ending the federal right to abortion established in 1973. The court ruled the Constitution did not protect a woman’s right to abortion. By removing federal protection, women’s access to abortion now depends on various laws in each state.
How Does This Impact Women’s Healthcare?
The Supreme Court’s decision impacted only elective abortions, not medical necessities.
Women should receive treatment for pregnancy complications regardless of location. This includes conditions like miscarriages or ectopic pregnancies and emergencies such as pre-eclampsia.
Even in states limiting abortion, women’s health exceptions typically allow it to save the mother’s life or physical health.
