After the U.S. Supreme Court overturned the Roe v. Wade case on June 24, demonstrations continued throughout the United States on June 25. It is expected that the demonstrations will last for the whole weekend. The latest ruling of the Supreme Court will give states the power to enact abortion laws. It is expected that nearly half of the states in the United States will declare abortion prohibited or severely restricted. The court's opinion stated that "the Constitution does not grant the right to abortion; the ruling in Roe v. Wade was rejected; the right to regulate abortion is returned to the people and their elected representatives." As of the 25th, 13 states, including Arkansas, Idaho, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, North Dakota, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Texas, Tennessee, Utah and Wyoming, have started the process of initiating abortion laws in accordance with the ruling. In some of these States, abortion laws will take effect immediately, while in other states, abortion laws will take effect after a period of time or through the signature of state officials.
