The loss of Roe v. Wade's legal underpinnings, stemming from SCOTUS's Dobbs decision, assaults a woman’s right to choose, and threatens other basic rights

On June 24, 2022, the Supreme Court issued its decision in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health, Case No. 19-1392, overturning decades of precedent holding that the United States Constitution protects a woman’s right to choose whether to terminate a pregnancy. That precedent came from the Supreme Court’s 1973 Roe v. Wade decision, which held that the right to choose was part of the broad constitutional right to privacy. The right to privacy has long been understood to be intertwined with the very concept of personal liberty, which is a core stated purpose of the constitution.
