Roe V. Wade overturned

Tags: news

Right now, abortion in Michigan is legal because a judge last month suspended a 1931 law that made it a crime. However, abortion opponents say the old law is valid and should stand. The ruling was a 6-3 split. The Supreme Court is siding with a Mississippi law that bans almost all abortions after 15 weeks of pregnancy. Friday's ruling comes more than a month after the stunning leak of a draft opinion by Justice Samuel Alito indicating the court was prepared to take this step.
