Millions of women in the US will lose the constitutional right to abortion, after the Supreme Court overturned a 50-year-old ruling today that legalised it.

The supreme court has ruled there is no constitutional right to abortion in the country, upending a precedent in the landmark Roe v Wade case – a rare reversal of long-settled law that will fracture the foundations of modern reproductive rights in America.

Here are some important reads addressing the issue:

📚 The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood

📚 Life’s Work by Dr. Willie Parker

📚 The Girls Who Went Away by Ann Fessler

📚 Handbook for a Post-Roe America by Robin Marty

📚 Shout Your Abortion by Amelia Bonow and Emily Nokes

📚 My Life on the Road by Gloria Steinem

📚 Poor Your Soul by Mira Ptacin

📚 Killing the Black Body by Dorothy Roberts
