According to POLITICO, Alito writes, “Roe was egregiously wrong from the start. We hold that Roe and Casey must be overruled,” he continued. “It is time to heed the Constitution and return the issue of abortion to the people’s elected representatives.”

Roe v. Wade was a landmark decision of the U.S. Supreme Court. The Court found that the Constitution of the United States protects a pregnant woman’s liberty to choose to have an abortion without disproportionate government regulation.

Well, we got tired of tripping over women in bathrooms, public bathrooms, who were giving themselves abortions because there was nowhere safe, nowhere clean, nowhere to go.
