Explained: The War on Roe v. Wade

With the prospect of Roe v. Wade being overturned, we unpack the movement against abortion rights in the United States. A leaked draft Supreme Court decision indicates the landmark decision is set to be struck down – what would that mean for American society? Iowa-based writer Lyz Lenz joins Ros Taylor to discuss how the country reached this moment of reckoning, and what could happen next.

“Since 1973 we have seen a slow erosion of the ability to access abortion services.”

“There has been a Conservative plan to appoint judges that would overturn Roe v. Wade.”

“The justices are pushing a minority viewpoint in overturning Roe v. Wade.”

“Other rights could be up for debate, such as the right to gay marriage.”

“A lot of Americans were very comfortable and thought this day would never come.”

“Being able to access the pill saved my life and my career.”
