Supreme Court Overturns Roe vs Wade, Will Be Major Factor In Midterms

US

The US Supreme Court has overturned the landmark Roe vs. Wade ruling that legalised abortion nationwide in the United States in a decision that will have a major impact on the midterm elections in November.

  • Ruling can be found here: https://www.supremecourt.gov/opinions/21pdf/19-139...
  • Supreme Court ruling: "The Constitution does not confer a right to abortion; Roe and Casey are overruled; and the authority to regulate abortion is returned to the people and their elected representatives.”
  • Vote was split 6-3 in favour of repealing, with Chief Justice John Roberts and Associate Justices Clarence Thomas, Samuel Alito, Neil Gorsuch, Brett Kavanaugh, and Amy Coney-Barrett in favour with Stephen Breyer, Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan dissenting.
  • The extremely polarised nature of the ruling in the US means the issue is likely to feature heavily as part of the political dialogue in the run-up to the November mid-term elections.
  • Races that may have been focused on the US economy, the environment, education or a plethora of other issues could now see abortion rights rise to the top of the agenda.
