Reproduction: Let's Talk About It
Roe v. Wade, 410 U.S. 113 (1973), was a landmark decision of the U.S. Supreme Court in which the Court ruled that the Due Process Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution provides a fundamental "right to privacy" that protects a pregnant woman's liberty to choose whether or not to have an abortion.
A new Alabama law that bans abortion in almost all circumstances, even in cases of rape and incest, was signed on May 15, 2019, by Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey. She said it was intended to help the Supreme Court to overturn the landmark 1973 Roe vs. Wade decision.
But, pro-life activists think it has gone too far. Not so much about the ruling, but the strategic plan to end the lamdmark Roe vs Wade. With its' share of supporters and distractors, the Alabama ruling buzzes a reputation of fundamentally undermining the case for abortion by expanding the legal definition of life.
