Roe v. Wade Upends Washington

Last week’s publication by Politico of a draft Supreme Court ruling that would overturn the 1973 landmark Roe v. Wade abortion ruling upended the national conversation. If finalized, the draft majority opinion on the Mississippi 15-week abortion ban at the center of the controversy would overturn Roe v Wade and the 1992 Planned Parenthood v Casey, ending the constitutional right to abortions. The Supreme Court confirmed the authenticity of the leaked draft but emphasized that it does not represent the final opinion of the Court or even the current positions of the Justices.
