The future implications of overturning Roe v. Wade
Women no longer have a constitutional right to an abortion in the United States. The U.S. Supreme Court overturned 1973's landmark Roe v. Wade decision on Friday. The ruling has the potential to claw back abortion access across the country by allowing states to restrict or outright ban the procedure. Dahlia Lithwick writes about American courts and the law for Slate and hosts its Amicus podcast. Lithwick joins Piya Chattopadhyay to discuss what this decision means for reproductive rights and the potential fate of other protections from contraception to same-sex marriage.
