If you research women’s rights, you will find a collection of rights and entitlements achieved by and for women worldwide.
The Supreme Court’s revised decision regarding abortion is largely the topic of women’s rights today in America.
So has anything changed? Here is a recap of what the Court’s decision means and how each state is moving forward.
America After Roe
The original ruling of Roe vs. Wade in 1973 was based on the belief that the 14th Amendment implied a woman’s right to abortion.
In June of this year, The Supreme Court ruled that the original verdict was in error. According to the new decision, the Constitution does not confer a right to abortion.
The decision regarding the laws and legislature of abortion has now been returned to the states. Each state’s representative has the task of upholding current laws or passing new legislation for abortions.
California’s Abortion Laws
California laws regarding abortions will remain virtually unchanged following the reversal of Roe.
The state’s Attorney General stated recently that abortions will remain fully legal and fully protected in California. California currently permits women to get elective abortions up until 24 weeks of their pregnancy. After 24 weeks, the state allows abortions when the health of the mother is at risk.
