How Does the Overturning of Roe v. Wade Affect You?
With the historic overturning of Roe v. Wade, many have wondered how it affects our Country. It does not make abortion illegal. What it does, is allow each State Legislature to make their own laws concerning abortion for their respective state. As many legal scholars have argued, the right to abortion was not in the U.S. Constitution. When a law is not in the Constitution, it is left up to the states to determine the law. In doing this, it gives the rights back to the voters since the voters determine the candidates they elect in their state legislature.
