- Planned Parenthood Of Southeastern Pennsylvania V. Casey (1992)
The U.S. Supreme Court case in which the Court reaffirmed a woman's right to terminate her pregnancy in the early stages, but also allowed such restrictions on abortion as informed consent, a 24-hour waiting period, and the consent of at least one parent when a minor seeks an abortion. The Court struck down a provision that required a married woman to get the consent of her husband before obtaining an abortion.
