Photos: Americans react to the Supreme Court overturning Roe v. Wade
The U.S. Supreme Court overturned the landmark Roe v. Wade abortion decision.
Americans reacted with both protests and celebrations after the U.S. Supreme Court, on June 24, 2022, overturned the landmark Roe v. Wade decision, which guaranteed the right to abortion across the country for nearly 50 years. The court voted 5-4, largely along party lines, to overturn Roe and 6-3, in the case of Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health Organization, which involved Mississippi's ban on abortions after 15 weeks of pregnancy. In doing so, the court has struck down abortion as a constitutional right and leaves abortion access up to state legislatures.
