Roe v. Wade 410.U.S 113 is a watershed decision which states that the constitution of United States protects an expectant woman’s independence to choose to terminate the pregnancy. The decisions concerning reproductivity of a woman are personal as its private life. However Roe v. Wade is not a legal right as some aspects of abortion were regarded as illegal in half of the United States. This is a result of the US government showing interests to protect woman’s health and antenatal life thereby the supreme court disagreed with the Roe v. Wade decision. The Supreme Court ruled that it’s no longer constitutional to terminate a pregnancy; if a woman conceives whether willingly or through rape, she must deliver. The Supreme Court decided is better the foetus to be adopted by well up families rather than to lose a life.
Although this ruling has led to the closure of businesses involving abortion care facilities, it does not restrict a woman to travel miles of distance to look for states where pregnancy termination is allowed or where there are abortion protections. It has also not prohibited self-management abortions through medications or any other means.
With this ruling, United States becomes one of the just four countries to go against the abortion rights since 1994. Furthermore, with half of the country passing the prohibition, it will have an impact on millions of Americans. Since it’s not national, and with the US being the wealthiest and influential country in the world, it might lure many other countries to recognize abortion as a crime and see the essence of protecting poor innocent lives of the foetus and that of the woman.
