Provides an overview of the landmark decision by the United States Supreme Court on the issue of abortion. The Court held that a woman's right to an abortion is determined by her current trimester of pregnancy. The case prompted a national debate that continues today about issues including whether (and/or to what extent) abortion should be legal, who should decide the legality of abortion, and what methods the Supreme Court should use in constitutional adjudication.
