The U.S. Supreme Court issued a decision in the Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization. This decision effectively reverses Roe v. Wade (Roe) and Planned Parenthood of Southeastern Pa. v. Casey (Casey) in defiance of nearly 50 years of precedent. Losing Roe means abortion is no longer federally protected as a constitutional right.
Abortion is still legal in Pennsylvania.
