Roe v. Wade

Landmark decision Roe v. Wade was overturned last week after several decades of protected reproductive freedom. Throwing away nearly 50 years of precedent not only takes away our power to make personal medical decisions, but it also reveals this Court’s disregard for stare decisis, an essential doctrine guiding decisions for settled legal issues in our judicial system. The current SCOTUS has quickly moved to legislating from the bench putting the health and safety of millions in peril as a result. Access to abortion is still legal in Florida and must be protected for all Floridians, and congress must act to codify reproductive rights.
