Abortion Rights Advocates Mark 2 Years Since SCOTUS Overturned Roe v. Wade

HeadlineJun 25, 2024

Rallies were held in front of the Supreme Court and across the country Monday as the nation marked two years since the right-wing-led court overturned Roe v. Wade, ending the constitutional right to an abortion. Nearly two dozen states have since restricted abortion, with 14 states now banning the procedure. Vice President Kamala Harris spoke in Phoenix, Arizona, at a reproductive rights event marking the anniversary of the Dobbs ruling.

Vice President Kamala Harris: “Two years ago today, the highest court in our land took a constitutional right, that had been recognized, from the people of America, from the women of America. And thereafter, in state after state, laws have been proposed and passed that criminalize healthcare providers. You know, in Texas, they provide prison for life.”

In related news, a new study shows that Texas has seen a 13% increase in infant and newborn deaths since the state imposed an abortion ban.
