Key recent cases with an impact on women’s rights were decided by narrow, often one-vote margins, over vigorous dissents.  Therefore, one new Justice on the U.S. Supreme Court who does not support women’s rights could mean dramatic erosion in protections for these rights.  On the other hand, one new Justice who supports women’s rights could restore, or prevent further erosion of rights that have been lost in the last few years.  The cases decided in the last few terms underscore how critically important the votes of one new Justice will be to the rights and well-being of American women and their families.
