Print More

The motion filed Tuesday says too little was known about abortion’s effect on women when the U.S. Supreme Court heard the case in 1973. In that decision, justices ruled that women have the right to “be free from unwarranted governmental intrusion into matters so fundamentally affecting a person as the decision whether to bear or beget a child.”
