Roe v. Wade & Doe v. Bolton
On January 22, 1973, the U.S. Supreme Court handed down two life-changing decisions, Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton. Together these decisions by unelected justices drastically changed the abortion laws of all fifty states, blocking numerous laws protecting the lives of unborn children.
The Reality of Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton
Sadly, very few people understand what the U.S. Supreme Court did in these two monumental decisions. Most people believe Roe v. Wade only legalized abortion through the first trimester. Most people have never heard of Doe v. Bolton. In reality, these two decisions together legalized abortion-on-demand through all nine months of pregnancy. Even pro-abortion legal scholars can’t defend the fictitious legal theory behind these decisions.
What Happens When Roe v. Wade is Overturned?
Many supporters of legalized abortion are invested in spreading fear to the public about what would happen when Roe v. Wade is overturned. It’s important for the public to understand the reality of a world without Roe v. Wade, especially because once Roe v. Wade is overturned, the public can once again have a say on the issue of abortion.
