America May Be Nearing the End of the Roe Era

For The Atlantic, Garrett Epps writes about the abortion case, June Medical Services v. Russo, that will come up at the Supreme Court next month. The case is similar to the 2016 case, Whole Woman’s Health v. Hellerstedt, which dealt with a Texas law that “would have closed half of the clinics in Texas that offer abortion services,” Epps writes. The case was ruled unconstitutional, but in the wake of Justice Anthony Kennedy’s resignation, the court has been reshaped by the Trump administration’s appointments. Epps argues that June Medical Services v. Russo could end differently by further restricting abortion in conservative states.
