Dismantling women’s constitutional right to terminate a pregnancy, the U.S. Supreme Court (SCOTUS) reversed the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision in a 6-3 majority-conservative vote.
The decision has now made women’s sovereignty to determine their reproductive futures dangerously restrictive. But, it also comprises a litany of civil liberties. Regardless, the response on both sides has sent people to the streets to protest, while many are calling for Joe Biden to take more effective measures by expanding the Supreme Court. We talk about the complicated and nuanced points in this legislation, while dismantling myths about Roe v. Wade and the alliances emerging on the other side of legislation that has been targeted for five decades.
Our discussion is with Dr. Sherice Janaye Nelson, a political science professor and international relations scholar.
