From that day that Roe v. Wade was decided in 1973, the constitutional right to an abortion has been seen by some as an inferred right, not a guaranteed one. This distinction has now become a threat to the law’s survival.

In Roe v. Wade, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that the Due Process Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution provides a fundamental “right to privacy” that protects a pregnant woman’s liberty to choose whether or not to have an abortion.
