Abortion Law in America is a unit study that focuses on helping students understand how abortion law was crafted and implemented by looking at the Supreme Court cases from 1973 that legalized abortion in all 50 states. Abortion law did not begin with Roe v. Wade in 1973. The Supreme Court used contraception cases in the 1960s that allowed the justices to create language and a precedent that enabled them to pass abortion laws a few years later. The lesser-known abortion case that was passed on the same day as Roe, Doe v. Bolton, has an equally important role to play in the shaping of our nation’s legalization of abortion-on-demand. Students will explore and unpack complex terms used by the Supreme Court justices, such as “right of privacy,” “fetal viability,” and “persons under the law,” to decipher the agenda behind the language of abortion law.
