Storyboard Text

  • Somewhere in Dallas County Texas, Jane Roe (a pseudonym) seeks an abortion.
  • Texas state law says I'm not allowed to grant you an abortion, unless you're dying.
  • She is denied.
  • Roe and her lawyers filed a lawsuit against Henry Wade, the district attorney for Dallas County, claiming that the law against abortions was unconstitutional.
  • In the argument for Wade, it will be pointed out that the right to abortion is not guaranteed in the constitution, a fetus, from conception, is a person and therefore has constitutional rights, and the right of the unborn's life outweighs the mother's right to privacy (which is not absolute).
  • The court makes their ruling 7-2 in Roe's favor.
  • In the arguments for Roe, it will be acknowledged that a woman's right to privacy is implicitly guaranteed by the 1st, 4th, 5th, 9th, and 14th amendments, as well as the fact that women's lives are greatly impacted by unwanted pregnancy as they could lose their jobs, the law is criminalizing a safe medical procedure, and most importantly - an unborn fetus is not recognized as a person and therefore does not have equal rights to the mother.
