The End of Roe: A PBS NewsHour Special Report

June 24, 2022

Above, the archived livestream of President Joe Biden’s remarks on June 24 at 12:35 p.m., in response to the Supreme Court decision that overturned Roe v. Wade that morning.

Following today’s historic Supreme Court decision overturning 50 years of the constitutional right to abortion, PBS NewsHour anchor and managing editor Judy Woodruff will anchor a special report on the impact of this legal and cultural change: The End of Roe: A PBS NewsHour Special Report, Friday, June 24, 8-8:30 p.m. on THIRTEEN. The special will look at the division on the court, the anti-abortion activism that led to today’s decision, the next steps as the battle over abortion access shifts to the states, and looks back at the history of pre-Roe America and what will come next.

The special will follow the regularly scheduled PBS NewsHour broadcast from 7-8 p.m.

Washington Week, which normally airs 8-8:30 p.m., will air at 8:30 p.m. on June 24, after The End of Roe: A PBS NewsHour Special Report. Moderator Yamiche Alcindor will host a program focused entirely on the Roe decision and its political fall-out. Her guests will include the reporter who broke the leak of the landmark Alito opinion in May.

Scheduled programming resumes at 9 p.m. (The Great American Recipe).
