On June 24, 2022, the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade, immediately stripping women of their constitutional right to abortion. The devastating effects of this decision can be seen as states begin to criminalize abortion. Abortion is now illegal in 16 states, and anti-abortion lawmakers in other states are rushing to follow suit, threatening to make abortion inaccessible to an estimated 33 million women across the country. The impact of this decision on women’s health was almost immediate.
