The US Constitution does not guarantee the right to abortion.can we read in this decision written by judge Samuel Alito on behalf of the conservative majority.
According to the magistrate, the recognition of this right by the Supreme Court almost 50 years ago was a decision
The Supreme Court had to consider a text of law of Mississippi which prohibits abortion after 15 weeks of pregnancy.
However, the Supreme Court did more than confirm the legality of the Mississippi law: it squarely canceled the constitutional right to abortion recognized in 1973 and reiterated in 1992 in Casey v. Planned Parenthood.
This Supreme Court decision has the effect of restoring the situation that was in effect before Roe. Thus, it will now be up to the States to legislate in order to prohibit, limit or authorize abortion on their territory.
About half of the states are expected to ban this procedure in the wake of the Supreme Court’s decision.
Already, Missouri, Louisiana and Texas have announced the suspension of almost all abortion procedures in their territories. These states, like a dozen others, had adopted trigger laws that provided for the almost immediate cancellation of abortion in the event of Roe’s overthrow.
Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry welcomed the U-turn by the Supreme Court.
Today, with millions of people in Louisiana and America, I rejoice with my deceased mom and with the unborn children who are with her in heaven!

It will also mark one of the most significant legacies of President Donald Trump, who vowed to appoint judges who would overturn Roe v. Wade. The three judges he appointed agree with the majority decision, a judgment that represents nothing less than the
God’s willaccording to Donald Trump.
Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts voted with the majority but said in a concurring decision he would have taken a more
measured without going as far as the outright annulment of the Roe c. Wade.
The Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe and Casey is a serious shock to the legal system, regardless of your opinion on these matters.he wrote.
