What overturning abortion ruling means

Friday’s landmark decision to overturn Roe v. Wade drew swift, emotional reactions all across the country.

Trigger laws put in place before the ruling meant that abortion was effectively outlawed in 13 states as soon as the decision was released Friday morning.

Some members of Congress plotted their next moves, including House Majority Whip Jim Clyburn, D-S.C, who expressed optimism that Democrats can mount a legislative response to the Dobbs decision

And many more were concerned about what the Supreme Court ruling could mean for other milestone decisions, particularly after conservative Justice Clarence Thomas called for the Supreme Court to ‘reconsider’ gay marriage and contraception after the Roe ruling. 

Here’s a look at what the ruling means for Americans and how the nation is responding to a fundamental change in reproductive rights.
