The U.S. Supreme Court’s 1992 ruling in Planned Parenthood of Southeastern Pennsylvania v. Casey reaffirmed a woman’s right to an abortion as granted in the 1973 Roe v. Wade case. However, the contentious 5-4 decision altered Roe and upheld a number of Pennsylvania abortion requirements cited in the case, while broadening the authority of states to regulate and restrict abortions.

In the January 22, 1973, Roe v. Wade decision, the Supreme Court, in a 7-2 vote, ruled that abortion during the first trimester of pregnancy was a constitutional right protected by the 14th Amendment.
