Photos: Emotions run high as Supreme Court reverses Roe vs. Wade

In a historic reversal, the Supreme Court on Friday overturned the landmark 1973 Roe vs. Wade decision, ruling that states can ban abortion again.

The court’s conservative majority said the constitution fails to protect women’s right to choose to have an abortion, instead leaving those decisions to state legislatures.

The 5-4 ruling marks the most significant curtailment of an established right in the court’s history.
