The US Supreme Court overturns a 50-year-old ruling known as Roe v Wade that guaranteed nationwide abortion rights for women.
It says the Constitution "does not confer a right to abortion" and "the authority to regulate abortion is returned to the people and their elected representatives"
The decision means millions of women across the US will lose their legal right to abortion as individual states will be able to make their own laws on it.
