The Supreme Court is debating an abortion case that could set in motion a devastating effect; their decision could end access to legal abortion for more than 100 million Americans, especially for those living in almost every Southern state and most of the Midwest.



Twenty-one states are poised to immediately ban or acutely curtail access to abortions if the Supreme Court chooses to overturn or weaken Roe v. Wade, which for 50 years has guaranteed women’s right to seek an abortion, a linchpin in women’s rights.

The result would be “incredible chaos and devastation,” said Hillary Schneller of the Center for Reproductive Rights, one of the lead attorneys representing Jackson Women’s Health Organization, the Mississippi abortion clinic at the center of the case.

Republicans and anti-abortion groups have been pushing to overturn Roe v.Wade since it was passed into law in 1973.
