This week, a leaked draft decision from the US Supreme Court in the Dobbs v. Jackson case indicated that the Court may be on the verge of overturning the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision which gave women the right to a safe and legal abortion in the US. Alex Garlick writes that the move, which is the result of a decades-long effort from anti-abortion rights groups, will have an immense human cost as states with “trigger bans” begin to prohibit abortions, and that there will be political implications at the state and national level as well.
