Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer issued what many considered a dire warning from the bench this week, implying that Roe v. Wade — the landmark ruling that recognizes the constitutional right to an abortion — is in danger. He wrote the comments in dissent for an unrelated case in which the court voted to overturn a 40 year-old precedent.
“Today’s decision can only cause one to wonder which cases the Court will overrule next,” Justice Breyer wrote.
Democracy Now! speaks to journalist Robin Marty about what a post-Roe America would look like, and how many people are already cut off from abortion access across the country.
