A note for you: While Americans overwhelmingly support the right of an individual to make their own decisions about abortion, unfortunately, that right is no longer protected everywhere in the U.S. Abortion is a basic healthcare need for the millions of people who can become pregnant. This decision by the U.S. Supreme Court has dire consequences for individual health and safety, and could have harsh repercussions for other landmark decisions.
