The U.S. Supreme Court’s decision striking down a constitutional right to abortion and sending the issue to the states has groups on both sides of the debate focusing more than ever on races this fall for state supreme courts.

Whether abortion access is maintained, restricted or eliminated in any state could depend on whether a state’s high court has a majority of Democratic or Republican justices.

Illinois, Kentucky, Michigan, North Carolina and Ohio are among the states where the races are drawing heavy interest and spending as the midterm elections approach.
