The overturning of Roe v. Wade happened on June 24, 2022. The Supreme Court decided the U.S. Constitution didn’t confer a right to abortion and reversed the original Roe v. Wade decision that legalized abortion nationwide.
So what does this mean for you? It can be confusing at times to know what is fact or fiction. Here are the facts:
The Facts about Overturning Roe v. Wade
The overturning of Roe. v. Wade gave the power back to the states, allowing each state government to decide abortion laws.
It did not result in banning abortion nationwide. Some state laws continue to change with new legislation.
How Does it Affect Texas Laws?
Even before the court overturned Roe, Texas had implemented a 6-week abortion ban. Since the ruling, Texas has completely banned abortion, with no exceptions.
Ectopic Pregnancy Treatment is Still Available
There has been much talk and confusion around ectopic pregnancies, so we want to help clear it up.
Access to ectopic pregnancy treatment has not changed! It’s important to understand that treatment for this pregnancy complication is entirely legal and accessible today. Treatment is very different than an abortion procedure.
Women receive ectopic treatment with non-viable pregnancies. They should see their healthcare providers immediately because it can lead to serious health complications.
An elective abortion is a decision made by a woman who wants to end an existing, viable pregnancy.
