Louisiana, for example, sought to reinstate an law making all abortions illegal and imposing a ten-year sentence on doctors and women violating it.

      But because the Missouri law contains a provision that makes it subject to the United States Constitution and the decisions of the U.S. Supreme Court, the Supreme Court ruled that the law is not unconstitutional in its decision Webster vs. Reproductive Health Services. Wade, (1) the landmark case that established the right to abortion as a fundamental constitutional right. The Court faced its first real opportunity to reverse that monumental decision a mere sixteen years later. In Webster v. Reproductive Health Services, (2) the State of Missouri and the United States explicitly asked the Court to overrule Roe.
