The 1973 Roe v. Wade decision was overturned by the US Supreme Court by a 6–3 margin. The decision is now in the hands of the states.
It was obvious that the decision would be rendered before the start of the summer vacation at the end of June, as well as which way it would go. However, when the news first surfaced this morning, Washington was in disarray. The national abortion law, which made abortion legal up to the 24th week, has actually been overturned by the Supreme Court.
In accordance with the conservative majority on the judiciary, the supreme judges made their decision by a vote of six to three. The historic Roe v. Wade decision of 1973, which divided the nation for many years, is now history.
It is safe to say that the turning point, a turning point in US judicial history, was not unexpected. In May, information about a Supreme Court test vote with this exact motivation leaked. The plan was leaked for the first time to an online publication, Politico, and Chief Justice John Robert was so shocked that he opened an inquiry. Judge Samuel Alito argued that abortion-related issues were a state issue rather than a national one. This line was followed in the official judgment.
On Thursday, the decision of another judge had already been used as a signpost. The Supreme Court reversed a New York state law that had recently sparked national outrage following a supermarket shooting in Buffalo by voting 6 to 3 to uphold the right to carry a firearm in public.
