Letter: Roe v Wade created safer lives for women
On June 24, the U.S. Supreme Court officially struck down Roe v Wade and Planned Parenthood v Casey and the federal abortion protections that had come with them.
According to the fact checking website snopes.com, laws that restrict or ban abortion have played a small or negligible part in reducing the rate of abortions, but they do increase the number of unsafe, illegal ones.
As has often been said: Roe v Wade wasn't the beginning of women having abortions. Roe was the end of women dying from abortions. To protect women and reduce the number of unsafe abortions, Roe v Wade must be restored!
