This storyboard does not have a description.
I, Justice Blackmun, state that we have decided a fetus is not a person under the 14th amendment.
We decided that the state may in the third trimester of a pregnancy “if it chooses, regulate the abortion procedure in ways that are reasonably related to maternal health,”
The constitutional aspects of this case are the First, Fourth, Fifth, Ninth, and Fourteenth Amendments.
I, Justice William H. Rehnquist dissent the case and I believe “the Court’s opinion will accomplish the seemingly impossible feat of leaving this area of the law more confused than it found it.”
I think what was meant by that statement was how today 44 years later we still are unsure of things surrounding abortions. The court was breaking ground by granting constitutional privacy with things like marriage and conception.
This case still applies to today because there is still much controversy surrounding abortions . People are concerned about ethical or religious reasoning. Weather or not it is considered murder or if the fetus isn't a person until it is born.
