Roe v. Wade overturned by Supreme Court

The U.S. Supreme Court has overturned Roe v. Wade in a ruling released Friday (opens in new tab) (June 24). In doing so, the justices eliminated the constitutional right to abortion that was established by the 1973 court case and later affirmed by a 1992 case called Planned Parenthood of Southeastern Pennsylvania v. Casey. 

The newly decided case concerned a Mississippi law called the “Gestational Age Act” that was enacted in 2018, which banned nearly all abortions where the “probable gestational age of the unborn human” was determined to be 15 weeks or more, The New York Times reported (opens in new tab). The Mississippi law allowed abortions beyond that point “only in medical emergencies or for severe fetal abnormality,” and it offered no exception in cases of rape or incest, according to CNN (opens in new tab).
