    Breaking: SCOTUS Delivers Massive Roe v Wade Decision

    Published on

    Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization and concurrently overturned Roe v. Wade and Planned Parenthood v. Casey, the two cases that established and sustained abortion as a right in the United States, in the midst of exceptional turbulence over the topic of abortion.

    The opinion, issued by Justice Samuel Alito, stated, “The Constitution does not confer a right to abortion; Roe and Casey are overruled; and the authority to regulate abortion is returned to the people and their elected representatives.”

    Even before the 6-3 judgment was reached, the Dobbs case was destined to be a landmark one since it directly challenged the 1973 Roe v. Wade and 1992 Planned Parenthood v. Casey Supreme Court precedents that established and later reaffirmed the right to abortion.

    The ruling will be one of the lasting legacies of former President Donald Trump, who appointed three of the majority justices, including Neil Gorsuch, Brett Kavanaugh, and Amy Coney Barret.

    The opinions of Justices Clarence Thomas, Gorsuch, Kavanaugh, and Barrett concurred with those of Justice Alito. Thomas and Kavanaugh, along with Chief Justice John Roberts, also issued concurring opinions.

    Justices Stephen Breyer, Sonya Sotomayor, and Elena Kagan, the court’s liberal wing, dissented.

    In a tone that was occasionally sarcastic, the dissent referred to the verdict as “catastrophic.”

    But the decision makes the constitutional heart of the matter clear.

    “It is time to heed the Constitution and return the issue of abortion to the people’s elected representatives,” Alito wrote. Read more…
