Roe v. Wade Overturned: Separating Fact From Fiction

Roe v. Wade: Fact from Fiction

After the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade, many were left wondering how the United States would be impacted. It’s essential to understand this decision since laws are quickly shifting as lawmakers work to alter abortion regulations for the states they represent.    

Did the New Verdict Outlaw Abortion Everywhere in the U.S.?

No, the Supreme Court’s recent overturning did not outlaw abortion everywhere. Instead, this decision gave the people the power to decide what their state’s abortion access laws would be.

People may now vote for delegates who will speak on their behalf and put laws into practice that reflect their beliefs on this matter. This means that, like many other issues and laws, states will differ from one another in how strict or lax their abortion restrictions are.

Is Life-Saving Treatment Still Provided to Women in States With Strict Abortion Laws?

Yes, if an emergency or pregnancy complication such as ectopic pregnancy or miscarriage arises and necessitates care, treatment is still legally available to women. The abortion laws of the state where the woman obtains the treatment or personally resides will have no impact on her legal ability to attain treatment.

According to a recent letter from the Health Secretary of Human Services, healthcare workers must use their medical expertise and clinical judgment and “provide stabilizing medical treatment” for women requiring it.
