Represent PA sponsor and activist Kathryn (Kitty) Kolbert argued the case of Planned Parenthood v. Casey before the Supreme Court in 1992, which was also overturned by Friday’s decision [to overturn Roe v. Wade].
Friday’s womb-wrenching opinion eviscerated the constitutional right to choose abortion, leaving many Americans shocked and saddened.
Beyond creating devastating consequences for people’s lives and health in the more than 20 states that are expected to ban abortions in the coming weeks or months, the decision opens the door to the erosion of other important constitutional protections, from the right to use contraception or common treatments for infertility to gay marriage and end-of-life care.
