Wade influenced the country more than was expected.
was does the Constitution cover a woman's right to terminate her pregnancy by abortion? The .
court held that a woman's right to an abortion fell within the right to privacy protected by the .
Fourteenth Amendment. " The decision gave a woman total control over the first trimester and .
specified different levels of state interest for the second and third trimesters. The right to .
privacy was not meant to be the main idea of the case, but was brought up with the abortion .
concept. Another question asked is if the unborn fetus has any constitutional rights? According .
to the Fourteenth Amendment , " All persons born or naturalized in the United States and .
subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the Unites States and of the State wherein they .
reside." Here the rights of the woman are shown but nothing about an unborn baby. The .
Fourteenth Amendment guarantees personal liberty, which includes the woman and the unborn .
fetus. It was considered the most essential in Supreme Court history. The Supreme Court rarely .
ever got the opportunity to have a hand in a matter and they wanted to make sure they everything .
went accordingly. The Supreme Court exhibited their power that they could alter the .
decisiveness which impacted the lives of the citizens of the United States. This case had much .
impact on governmental law. This case demonstrated to show that every person has the right to .
privacy. Roe vs. Wade a was major climax in the ever growing issue of abortion. .
Texas" argument " urges that, apart from the Fourteenth Amendment, life begins at .
conception and is present throughout pregnancy, and that, therefore, the States has a compelling .
interest in protecting that life from and after conception." The question here is when does life .
begin? Does life really begin at conception, or does life begin at birth? .
This case brought on two groups of people, pro - life and pro- choice.
