Is Roe v. Wade in danger of being overturned?


As COVID-19 began spreading across the United States in the spring, several states designated abortion as an elective procedure that must be canceled or delayed due to the pandemic. After legal challenges to these efforts, most of the COVID-related restrictions were blocked. But even before the pandemic struck, new laws had restricted access to the procedure in certain states, many of which have been challenged in court. In June the U.S. Supreme Court struck down one of them, but scholars and activists caution that the court’s narrow decision does not necessarily signal how the court might rule on future abortion cases.
