Abortion is no longer a federal constitutional right. On June 24, the United States Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade, which protected women’s right to abortion. States now have full autonomy to set their own laws when it comes to abortion access or restrictions.
The overturning of Roe v. Wade means almost of the states are likely to fully ban abortion or limit the procedure. Some states have trigger laws in place, making abortion illegal now that the procedure is no longer protected by the constitution.
