Supreme Court overturns constitutional right to abortion
Anderson Cooper 360
Jun 25, 2022

The Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade on Friday, holding that there is no longer a federal right to an abortion. 

Former Texas state senator Wendy Davis and Congresswoman Cori Bush discuss how the opinion is one of the most consequential Supreme Court decisions in decades and will transform the landscape of women's reproductive health in America.

After news broke that the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade, activist groups began organizing protests for Friday. At least 70 protests are set to occur Friday afternoon and into the evening.

Atlanta, San Francisco, Boston, Los Angeles, New York, and Houston are among the cities where protests will occur. Protests are set to carry on into the weekend as well.
