Cincinnati Edition: Supreme Court overturns Roe v. Wade, what are legal and societal implications

The U.S. Supreme Court reversed the landmark ruling Roe v Wade, which guaranteed a federal constitutional right to an abortion, in a 5-4 ruling. The decision to permit or ban abortion now lies with individual states. WVXU’s Cincinnati Edition hosted a discussion about the decision with panelist Pro Choice Ohio Deputy Director Jaime Miracle; Right to Life of Greater Cincinnati Executive Director Laura Strietmann; UC Law Dean Verna Williams; and Danielle Bessett, PhD, UC associate professor of sociology and Ohio Policy Evaluation Network co-principal investigator.
