Storyboard Text

  • Oh no... I am single, I can't have a third baby but abortions are illegal. What do I do?
  • Congratulations! You're pregnant!  
  • That's not fair it's my body!!!
  • I'm sorry we cannot make abortion  legal in Texas.
  • Abortion should be legal
  • Abortion should be legal
  • Abortion should be legal
  • In June of 1961 Norma McCorvey (under the stage name Jane Roe) found out she was pregnant with her third child. Her friends wanted her to allege that she was assultated to get an abortion but in the end she gave birth to the baby and put it up for adoption. 
  • Congratulations! We did it!
  • We have decided that banning abortion is unconstitutional!
  • Yes!
  • Roe went to court with her lawyers Linda Coffee and Sarah Weddington. The law was determined unconstitutional by the judge Wade but in the end it was still illegal to get an abortion and they left court with an injunction. 
  • According to the fourteenth amendment...
  • The Constitution
  •  This amendment  addresses citizenship rights and equal protection of the laws. 
  • Roe did not think this was fair. She and many other females thought it was violating the ninth amendment to the Constitution. 
  • Thanks to Jane Roe Abortion is now legal in America!
  • Abortion is finally legal!
  • The case went to the Supreme Court in 1970. It was chosen out of three abortion cases to decide if getting an abortion was constitutional or not. Two formal arguments were made one on December 13, 1971 and the other on October 11, 1972. After the arguments were made, the Supreme Court decided it was unconstitutional to ban abortion. 
  • Instead of the ninth amendment the Supreme Court Justices used the fourteenth amendment to decide the verdict of this trial. They decided it was unconstitutional to deny a woman the right to do what she wants with her body. 
  • After the Roe vs Wade trial, abortion was made legal in all fifty states in America. This changed our country by letting all woman hae a right to do what they want with their bodies and lifestyle.  This is an important trial because it conveyed that women ought to choose what they want to do with their life.
