I keep seeing references in the my local daily paper about not only the Roe vs. Wade ruling but also a Planned Parenthood vs. Cassey ruling. What I can make out of the ruling from what was mentioned previously in the the paper today is that it had something to do with a minor , parental approval and boyfriend’s approval for the minor to have an abortion.
If someone could please explain what the Planned Parenthood vs Cassey ruling was about please?
It’s beyond me, but i did find this short video summary. I’m not sure if it will make things any clearer, but it did help me a bit.
So If I understand correctly, Roe is about the question wether or not abortion is a federal (constitutional) right, and Casey about the rules that states are allowed to make surrounding this abortion?
I too heard about both cases and was wondering about them.
