Abortion ruling intensifies fight over state supreme courts

  Abortion ruling intensifies fight over state supreme courts Surrounded by states with abortion bans that took effect after Roe v. Wade fell, Illinois is one of the few places where the procedure remains legal in the Midwest. Abortion-rights supporters are worried that might not last. Their concern is shared in at least a half-dozen states, and this year it's not just about state legislatures. In Illinois, Democrats hold a supermajority, and the governor, a Democrat, is expected to win reelection. Instead, Republicans could be on the verge of winning control of the Illinois Supreme Court, where Democrats currently hold a 4-3 majority.

Never seen.

Decisions that will affect democracy

with six conservative judges and three progressives, the body has clearly turned to the right. Which makes many Americans fear this new season.

As of Monday, the Court will start examining a question that is likely to affect the power of the federal government to combat pollution. On Tuesday 4, it will be the turn of a case linked to the voting Rights Act, which has been protecting the right to vote for African-Americans and minorities for almost 60 years.

Also on the program, affairs related to the equal rights of LGBTQ communities or the power of states in the organization and validation of elections. This new season promises decisions that will deeply affect American democracy.
