Stephen Maynard Caliendo provided analysis on the U.S. Supreme Court overturning Roe v. Wade

In a historic and far-reaching decision, the U.S. Supreme Court officially reversed Roe v. Wade on Friday, June 24, declaring that the constitutional right to abortion, upheld for nearly a half century, no longer exists. The court’s overturning of the landmark court ruling is likely to lead to abortion bans in roughly half the states.

The ruling, unthinkable just a few years ago, was the culmination of decades of efforts by abortion opponents, made possible by an emboldened right side of the court fortified by three appointees of former President Donald Trump.

Stephen Maynard Caliendo, dean of the College of Arts and Sciences at North Central College, interviewed with many media networks across Chicago, where he discussed the impact this ruling has on generations to come.
