US Supreme Court ruling Dobbs v Jackson (June 22, 2022) overturns Roe v Wade and Doe v Bolton (Jan. 22, 1973).
Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health Organization ruling HERE
Primary Holding: Abortion presents a profound moral question, and the Constitution does not prohibit the citizens of each state from regulating or prohibiting abortion. This decision overrules Roe v. Wade and Planned Parenthood of Pennsylvania v. Casey.
What does that mean in Washington State?
Washington's latest state abortion law, Reproductive Privacy Act (1991) is now in effect here. "The state may not deny or interfere with a woman's right to choose to have an abortion prior to viability of the fetus, or to protect her life or health." And the law gives the final word to the abortionist to determine fetal viability as well as the pregnancy's threat to the life or health of the mother.
In other words abortion remains legal on demand at anytime during pregnancy in Washington State. See Ballotpedia for synopsis, pro and con arguments and text of 1991 law HERE.
Incidentally the state law prior to that was Referendum 20 passed in 1970 HERE.
We are GRATEFUL for the moral courage of the Justices overturning this historic injustice against pregnant women and their babies. We are GRATEFUL for the moral courage of states passing pro-life laws to restrict killing unborn children.
