In the 1960s, the pro-choice movement became a major political movement in the United States. Pro-choice supporters believe that women have the right to terminate a pregnancy and legally have an abortion. Abortion became legal in the United States after the 1973 Supreme Court ruling in the landmark case, Roe v. Wade. Since that time, the issue has remained relevant as the pro-life movement, which advocates for the right to life for unborn babies, seeks to overturn this decision and make abortion illegal. The platform of Democratic Party has aligned with abortion-rights advocates, and a number of different organizations support the cause, as well.
