YORK COUNTY, Pa.—
The Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) has ruled to overturn the long held precedent of Roe v. Wade that safeguarded our right to abortion services. This means each state will decide how to regulate abortion services. Currently, in Pennsylvania, abortion services are available and unharmed by today’s ruling.
While all kinds of people have abortions for all kinds of reasons, the SCOTUS ruling will not impact all people who seek abortions equally. Women of color, women in low wage jobs and young women – many of whom already face barriers to healthcare – will be disproportionately impacted.
