roe v. WadeFacts Texas enacted a law that made it illegitimate to procure an abortion, unless, pursuant to medical advice, given to save the life of the mother. Jane Roe was an unmarried, pregnant woman. She was unable to get a lawful abortion in Texas because her life was not endanger by the continuation of her pregnancy. IssueWhether a pregnant woman has a constitutional right to reverse the pregnancy and whether the affirm interests in protecting life are justified chthonian strict scrutiny that the 14th Amend demands? Legal Reasoning harmonise to the court, the right of privacy under the 14th Amendment is broad enough to comprehend a womans decision whether or not to terminate her pregnancy. The court further ruled that the right of the woman is not absolute. The state can regulate the womans actions in cases where the law serves a compelling state interest. Therefore, in the end, the court ruled that in the initial plays of the pregnancy (before the end of the first t rimester) the woman and her physician are free to make their alternative about abortion without the interference from the state. For the resultant stage of pregnancy, the state can regulate the womans choice but only to serve the compelling interest of promoting the health of the mother. For the stage after viability, the state in promoting its interest in the potentiality of benignant life may, if it chooses, regulate and even proscribe, abortion except where it is necessary to maintain the life of the mother.
