'A Dark Day for Our Nation': Right-Wing Supreme Court Ends Constitutional Right to Abortion

"With this decision, the Supreme Court's extreme right-wing supermajority has struck a tremendous blow to our fundamental freedoms."

The right-wing majority of the U.S. Supreme Court struck down Roe v. Wade on Friday, ending the constitutional right to abortion and imperiling access to reproductive healthcare nationwide.

The 6-3 ruling in Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health Organization was issued along ideological lines, with all three liberal justices in opposition.

"With sorrow—for this court, but more, for the many millions of American women who have today lost a fundamental constitutional protection—we dissent," wrote Justices Elena Kagan, Sonia Sotomayor, and Stephen Breyer in their dissent.

The majority opinion was written by conservative Justice Samuel Alito, whose decision delivers a long-sought victory to the dark money-fueled movement that has been targeting Roe for decades.
