Since Roe v. Wade was overturned in the recent month of June 2022, many are asking how this will affect women’s rights. Does this mean all access to abortion is illegal? We want to help you understand the current climate of our nation’s laws regarding the overturning of Roe v. Wade and what that means for you.
What Did The Overturning of Roe v. Wade Do?
In 1973, the Supreme Court ruled abortion a constitutional right for women, but in June 2022, this was overturned by the Court. The Supreme Court now has handed over the power to each state to make its laws regarding abortion.
Giving the power back to the states allows the people to directly choose delegates who will speak on their behalf and represent their views on these issues. Women can make their voices heard.
How Does This Affect Women?
If women are considering abortion, state laws may limit their access. The only way to determine your pregnancy options is to verify what the current state laws are. In Texas, abortion is illegal, except for cases where the woman’s life is in danger.
Ask a trusted provider or medical center to determine your options and where to start. We can also help you receive clarity of your choices here at Options Clinic. Schedule a no-cost pregnancy consultation today!
