On January 22, 1973 The US Supreme Court ruled that a state law banning abortions, unless done to prevent life threatening medical conditions, was unconstitutional.
The Roe vs. Wade decision ruled that making abortions illegal was against women’s rights.
This was an important decision in granting women in the US more autonomy over their own bodies and futures.
Also, legal abortions prevent complications from dangerous illegal abortions by desperate people.
