The United States Supreme Court has overturned the landmark Roe v Wade decision ending the constitutional right to abortion for millions of women across the country.
The landmark 1973 “Roe v Wade” decision that enshrined a woman’s right to abortion. The court has now said that individual states can authorize or restrict the procedure themselves.
The decision is likely to open a Pandora’s box and elicit strong political reactions hailing and condemning the latest ruling by the US Supreme Court.
“The Constitution does not confer the right to abortion; Roe and Casey are nullified; and the power to regulate abortion is returned to the people and their elected representatives,” the court said.
