I Am an Abortion Rights Activist. I Hope the Supreme Court Overturns Roe v. Wade.

On January 22, 1973, the United States Supreme Court ruled 7 to 2 that the ability to terminate a pregnancy was a constitutional right. Now, less than five decades later, with a number of lower-court abortion decisions advancing and the most conservative Supreme Court since the 1930s, abortion opponents could be close to getting what they have wanted ever since Roe v. Wade: the decision’s reversal.
I am an abortion rights activist, and frankly, I couldn’t be happier.
