A Separation of Women and Rights: the Reproductive Equality Fight
Through focusing specifically on the relevance of spatial organization of territory and women’s rights concerning reproduction, a case that can exemplify the age-old struggle of the belief of the majority governing the private lives of all would be the Texas case of Roe v. Wade. The political and geographic results of this monumental court decision centered around abortion may be seen in the torrent of other similar cases that deal with women’s rights in relation to reproductive care across the U.S When more scrutiny is applied to this singularly defining case, it becomes more than a few fast facts. Through the ages, Roe v. Wade has been the political foundation upon which women’s reproductive rights has been shakily constructed, each new addition added only when a media outcry brought its relevancy to the public at large. It is a consuming effort to trace the effects of each case, which is why the foundation is ideal to begin with. By turning to the original matter at hand, that of a “constitutional right to privacy” (Roe v. Wade Supreme Court 1973) and its effect on the current state of abortion availability within the U.S., the effect of Roe v. Wade on the legislature of the U.S. and its subsequent policy concerning women’s reproductive rights has proved inefficient in implementation among the varied United States in modern day America.
