Special edition: Roe v. Wade’s end

Chicago Public Square returns in full Monday. But here’s a special edition reflecting this morning’s historic developments.

Politico sees the ruling “clearing the way for dozens of states to swiftly ban the procedure and throwing the country into uncharted political, legal, social and medical territory.”
Axios: A 2019 law signed by Gov. Pritzker means not much will change in Illinois …
  … but he’s “calling the General Assembly into special session … to further enshrine our commitment to reproductive health care rights and protections.”
The 19th says “trigger laws” will immediately or almost immediately outlaw abortion in 13 states.
 One analysis suggests 26 states are likely to do so.
The AP has been tracking developments live in the ruling’s aftermath.
A Teen Vogue editorial: “It’s impossible to overstate the horror and cruelty of this decision for any person who can get pregnant but does not want to have children. … See you in the streets.”
Read the decision plus concurrences and dissents here.
