Just like when abortion was illegal before, abortion won't end, it will just become dangerous and cost women their lives. This ruling joins the list of the worst decisions in the Court’s long history.— Rep. Colin Allred (@RepColinAllred) June 24, 2022

This is not the reality we should be facing in 21st century America. We are heartbroken for all of our patients, friends, neighbors, and staff who are facing insurmountable barriers.
BREAKING: U.S. Supreme Court overturns Roe v. Wade and Planned Parenthood v. Casey in today’s Dobbs decision, bringing an end to the ‘right’ to abortion. Today I am closing all my offices as a memorial to the millions of lives lost due to abortion.https://t.co/RSVNj6A2w5— Texas Attorney General (@TXAG) June 24, 2022
@SCOTUSblog overturned Roe v Wade fulfilling a promise from Donald Trump that his judges would overturn 50 years of precedent soon after being installed. This will lead to near total ban in half the states. Elections have consequences. #VOTE https://t.co/kbRCaNn1lP— Clay Jenkins (@JudgeClayJ) June 24, 2022
In 30 days, the only way a woman in Texas will be able to legally obtain an abortion in this state is if she is near death.— Ashley Lopez (@AshLopezRadio) June 24, 2022
The same will be true in about a dozen other states in this country.
Post Roe life is here.
The story will be updated throughout the day.
