The U.S. Supreme Court decision ending the right to abortion established by Roe v. Wade in 1973 has put other hard-won rights at risk, including the rights to same-sex marriage and contraception.

The level of risk depends on which opinion you read. The majority ruling written by Justice Samuel Alito said, "Nothing in this opinion should be understood to cast doubt on precedents that do not concern abortion.”

But Justice Clarence Thomas, in a concurring opinion, made it clear that "future cases” could curtail other rights not clearly addressed by the Constitution’s 18th century framers.
