Protests outside the Supreme Court in Washington, D.C., continued on Saturday, after the landmark decision by the Supreme Court to overturn Roe V. Wade, which guaranteed a woman’s right to an abortion for more than 50 years.

In a 5-4 decision on Friday, the top court upheld a Mississippi law that would ban most abortions after the 15th week, while also abolishing the legal precedent Roe v. Wade established in 1973 and the 1992 Planned Parenthood v. Casey decision that reaffirmed it.

Chief Justice John Roberts sided with the court’s three liberal-leaning justices, unable to sway even one member of the solid conservative majority that was fortified by three appointees of former president Donald Trump.

The question of whether abortions are legal will now be left up to individual states, which may lead to widespread differences in access across the U.S.
