A year after Roe v. Wade was overturned
A year ago, the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade, upending abortion law across the country.
A lot has changed since the decision, but the debate over abortion in America is far from over.
With Roe v. Wade overturned, what could replace it? WNYC’s Supreme Court podcast “More Perfect” takes up that question in a two-part series. The two episodes focus on the origins of the viability line—that’s the line that determines when a fetus is viable outside the womb.
That line was around 24 weeks as defined by Roe v. Wade. Now it’s whenever the state decides.
Both pro-abortion and anti-abortion groups havecriticized the viability line.With it gone, could this be a chance to create something better?
