Last week a leaked document, published by Politico, suggests the SCOTUS is poised to overturn the 1973 decision that legalised abortion nationwide. This leaked document has caused quite a reaction accross the nation with many showing up to the Court and the homes of the justices to protest. So for this wesk's blog I would like for us to explore this issue and consider the implications of such a ruling. As always, we will view the links and answer the questions below,


1.  Explain your understanding of the Court’s opinion in the case Roe v. Wade?


2.  Describe the events that have unfolded in the past week concerning the SCOTUS and the Roe v. Wade decision.


3.  How might this decision impact the State of NC?  For example, does NC have a “trigger law”?
