The Supreme Court has overturned landmark Roe v. Wade ruling, revoking the Constituional right to have an abortion.
According to The Washington Post, it was a 6-to-3 vote in the Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health case, favoring the former. Chief Justice John Roberts, however, criticized his colleagues for going a step further in overturning Roe and Planned Parenthood v. Casey.
The liberal Justices, Stephen Breyer, Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan, were in dissent.
“With sorrow — for this Court, but more, for the many millions of American women who have today lost a fundamental constitutional protection—we dissent,” they wrote.
The decision, which comes just over a month after the leaked initial draft majority decision, is expected to open the door for half of states to ban or drastically limit abortion.
Here’s how major organizations with pro-choice views have already responded.
