In 1973 Roe v Wade asserted the universal right to privacy for women demanding abortion: that decision determined a significant leap in Western culture, since it changed a “form of life”. After half a century there are good reasons to think that Roe will be overturned and that the right to abortion will be dependent on any single State’s decisions.
Abortion will be permitted in some States and prohibited in others.
What will the effects of such a decision be in the reproductive field in the US and over the world? Will it be the beginning of a new era of limitations of reproductive choices, or simply a shortlived phase that will be reverted?
