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:

πŸ“š The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood

πŸ“š Life’s Work by Dr. Willie Parker

πŸ“š The Girls Who Went Away by Ann Fessler

πŸ“š Handbook for a Post-Roe America by Robin Marty

πŸ“š Shout Your Abortion by Amelia Bonow and Emily Nokes

πŸ“š My Life on the Road by Gloria Steinem

πŸ“š Poor Your Soul by Mira Ptacin

πŸ“š Killing the Black Body by Dorothy Roberts
