In the court’s June 24 حكم, Alito called Roe “egregiously wrong from the start”.
He said the Constitution “does not confer a right to abortion,” declaring that the decision should ultimately be left to the state to regulate.
“Abortion presents a profound moral question The Constitution does not prohibit the citizens of each State from regulating or prohibiting abortion.
“Roe and Casey arrogated that authority. The Court overrules those decisions and returns that authority to the people and their elected representatives.”
The states that may implement total or near-total abortion restrictions include Alabama, أريزونا, أركنساس, جورجيا, Idaho, ايوا, كنتاكي, لويزيانا, ميشيغان, ميسيسيبي, Missouri, North Dakota, أوهايو, Oklahoma, كارولينا الجنوبية, South Dakota, تينيسي, تكساس, يوتا, West Virginia, Wisconsin and Wyoming.
In a concurring opinion, Justice Thomas wrote that the Supreme Court should “reconsider the rulings that protect contraception, same-sex relationships, and same-sex marriage.”
“In future cases, we should reconsider all of this Court’s substantive due process precedents, including Griswold, Lawrence, and Obergefell.
“Because any substantive due process decision is ‘demonstrably erroneous,’ we have a duty to ‘correct the error’ established in those precedents,” هو كتب.
Democrat-appointed Justices Breyer, Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan dissented.
“With sorrow—for this Court, but more, for the many millions of American women who have today lost a fundamental constitutional protection—we dissent,” they wrote.
