On June 24, 2022 the Supreme Court of the United States upheld Dobbs vs Jackson’s Women’s Health and further clarified that there is no right to an abortion within the Constitution as was found in Roe and Casey.
The Constitution makes no reference to abortion, and no such right is implicitly protected by any constitutional provision, including the one on which the defenders of Roe and Casey now chiefly rely—the Due Process Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment. (5)
Our Nation’s historical understanding of ordered liberty does not prevent the people’s elected representatives from deciding how abortion should be regulated. (31)
With this monumental win for life, a number of provisions within the various States kicked in banning or severely limiting the abortion act and saving the lives of babies across the nation! Below is a list of States and their current legislative statuses on abortion bans or limits as according to the Washington Post.
