How we got here: Roe v. Wade from 1973 to today

“The anti-abortion movement has also focused on building a pipeline of judicial nominees through organizations like the Federalist Society. The left, meanwhile, has focused on shifting party opinion on related issues like contraception coverage and the Hyde Amendment, which prohibits government funds from being used to pay for abortion except in the case of rape, incest, or endangering the mother’s life, while treating Roe as a largely settled matter.

Now, all those years of work by anti-abortion activists seem to be paying off. If the Supreme Court overturns Roe v. Wadeas it appears set to do based on the draft opinion that leaked..,it will toss out nearly 50 years of jurisprudence along with it.”
