This chapter explores the Planned Parenthood v. Casey case. It notes that many women during the decade after Roe v. Wade, got used to the notion that substantial access to abortions was a right they could count on. It further notes that concern is expressed by the Court in Planned Parenthood v. Casey (1992) about the likely consequences of a repudiation of Roe v. Wade. It provides that such Justices almost seem to concede that Roe v. Wade might have been, in 1973, a mistake which it would now be an even more serious mistake to repudiate altogether.

Keywords:   Planned Parenthood v. Casey, Roe v. Wade, abortions, Court, repudiation, Justices
