Al Jazeera: US Supreme Court overturns landmark abortion ruling

The US Supreme Court has overturned Roe v Wade, the landmark ruling that granted the right to abortion for nearly five decades in the United States.

In a decision released on Friday, the country’s top court ruled in a Mississippi case that “the Constitution does not confer a right to abortion”. The justices voted 6-3, powered by the court’s conservative supermajority.

“The authority to regulate abortion is returned to the people and their elected representatives,” the ruling reads.

This is a megathread for the recent Supreme Court ruling. All rules are still in effect. Trump supporters may make top-level comments related to the ongoing events, while NTS may ask clarifying questions.
