It is important, however, to understand what shifts in rights mean for you and your loved ones. In today’s blog, your Milford, CT attorneys discuss the importance of the fight for reproductive rights, and how these rights are in jeopardy given current events and Supreme Court hearings.

To Get You Up to Date

Women’s rights and reproductive rights received a precedented victory in 1973, as the Supreme Court of the United States legalized abortion in the case of Roe v. Wade. The outcome of this case made it possible for women to receive safe and legal abortions, given certain criteria/timeline events were met. Though the discussion regarding reproductive rights has been a hot-button issue for decades in terms of morality, it was not until early December of this year that significant strides have been made to indicate the demise of the decision with the case Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization.

Indeed, there are significant consequences currently being debated regarding overturning the jurisprudence set forth by Roe, including women’s rights, reproductive rights, and the legitimacy of the Supreme Court as our primary judicial institution. With all of this information currently up in the air, it is important to recognize how this will affect you in the meantime.

If Roe is overturned, the result will affect the entire country in a variety of ways. It represents a tipping point in which brings the legitimacy of the Supreme Court into question, and many of the Democratic justices have voiced that this legitimacy may not be able to be recovered. On the other hand, the Conservative side of the court has competing ideas for what exactly is at stake, including women’s rights, the interest of fetal life, adoption, and viability.
