Take a close look at the concurring and dissenting opinions in Casey v. Planned Parenthood and consider the information listed below. After your consideration, answer the questions on the following page.

Casey v. Planned Parenthood was the first case challenging the Roe v. Wade decision, because two liberal judges were replaced with conservative appointments (Justices Souter and Thomas).

Eight of the justices serving on the Supreme Court at the time of this ruling were conservative Republican appointments.

The only justice on the Court who had been appointed by a Democrat was Justice White, who had not been a supporter of the Roe decision.

Justices Blackmun and Stevens were supporters of the Roe decision.









Many people believed that such a conservative court would overturn Roe v. Wade completely, but this did not occur. Based on this information, are you surprised by the Court’s decision in Casey v. Planned Parenthood? Do you believe that any of the justices could be accused of judicial activism based on their written opinions in this case? Include relevant quotes from the opinions in the case, if you like.
