After 50 years, the Supreme Court overturned the landmark case of Roe vs. Wade, meaning that abortion is no longer a constitutional right. The ruling means that access to get an abortion could become a mixed bag based on which state someone resides in.

As expected, following the court’s decision, over half of the states are guaranteed or highly likely to prohibit abortion.

The ruling comes a day after the nation celebrated the 50th anniversary of Title IX, which was legislation passed to form and impose equal opportunities in sports for women.
