Roe vs. Wade

By: Ally Grogan and Hannah Douglas

What it's about?

Roe verses Wade is about a young woman in 1973 located in Texas who ended up pregnant and wanting an abortion. She later found out that in Texas, abortions were illegal unless the life of the mother is in danger. Roe then began to fight the law and get abortion legalized. She believed that law violated several of the amendments in the Constitution.

How it ended?

The case was filed 1971 to be heard by the Supreme Court. It was heard once in 1971 and later again in 1972. It was not until 1973 that the case won by a 7-2 decision in the Supreme Court. This had affirmed the legality of a woman's right to have an abortion under the Fourteenth amendment to the Constitution.


This topic is very controversial and will always be a huge debate...

Later results...

There has been over 55 million children lost due to abortions since 1973. Some say making abortions legal was constitutional but the resulting factors later are hard to comprehend.
