The Supreme Court’s Overturning of Roe v. Wade Shocks the Nation: Here’s Why and What You Can Do About It

This summer, on June 24th, 2022, not even 50 years after being passed, the United States Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade in a 5-4 vote. Frustration and devastation have rippled throughout the country since, and for good reason.

If you don’t already know, Roe v. Wade was a Supreme Court decision that stated the United States Constitution would protect a pregnant person’s right to get an abortion, the intentional termination of a pregnancy.

That human right has now been torn away from more than 167.6 million Americans, according to the 2021 census
