With Roe v. Wade overturned, a look at the impact in the Carolinas
On Friday, the decision became official. Roe v. Wade was overturned by the Supreme Court. A federal right to an abortion is not protected. The announcement has come with both elation and fear across the country.
More than two dozen states could ban or limit abortion access soon. South Carolina is one of them. As for North Carolina, the right is protected for now, but that could change.
Meanwhile, there are questions about what the decision means for other rights like same-sex marriage and the right to contraception.
We discuss the legal ramifications of this decision.
