As you may know, abortion law in the United States is based on the 1973 U.S. Supreme Court ruling known as Roe v. Wade. Most Americans believe that the Supreme Court should uphold Roe v. Wade, the landmark ruling that established a constitutional right to abortion, according to a Washington Post-ABC News poll conducted last week.
Based on the leaked draft opinion from Justice Samuel Alito, it appears the Supreme Court is poised to overturn the right to abortion. The survey finds that 54 percent of Americans think the 1973 Roe decision should be upheld while 28 percent believe it should be overturned — a roughly 2-to-1 margin.
So What’s Bedford Thinking? Do you think the Supreme Court should uphold Roe v. Wade or overturn it?
