TheDailyBeast.com: Most Divisive Supreme Court Decisions

Roe v. Wade

In the Roe v. Wade decision of 1973, the court ruled that state laws banning abortion were unconstitutional and that states could not outlaw or regulate any aspect of abortion performed during the first trimester of any pregnancy. At the time of the decision, most states had severe restrictions on abortion practices. In the 7–2 decision, the court argued that the Constitution protects an individual’s “zone of privacy” and that “zone of privacy” was “broad enough to encompass a woman’s decision whether or not to terminate her pregnancy.”
