For You To Think About
The United States Supreme Court’s Roe v. Wade decision was handed down on January 22, 1973.
Further, states could only enact abortion regulations pertaining to the second and third trimesters when a mother’s life was affected.
Finally, the ruling stipulated that states could enact abortion laws protecting the life of the fetus only in the third trimester. Even then, an exception had to be made to protect the life of the mother.
The ruling was based on an individual’s right to privacy, granted under in the 14th Amendment, which the majority argued extended to a woman’s decision to have an abortion.
In essence, the Roe v. Wade decision legalized abortion on demand. Today, Roe v. Wade remains one of the Supreme Court’s most recognized and divisive rulings.
For You To Pray

In Jesus’ name, Amen.
