The Roe vs. Wade Decision


The Supreme Court case of Roe vs. Wade (22 January 1973) is the landmark U.S. decision legalizing abortion on demand in the U.S.A. It is not without its caveats, as it restricted late term (3rd trimester/post-24 weeks) to “health” reasons. Understood in tandum with the concurrent case, Doe vs. Bolton, given on the same day of January 22, 1973, this case is considered by abortion advocates to be a watershed decision for women’s rights. The full text can be read here.
