“The 1969 state law criminalizing abortion was not currently enforced because the U.S. Supreme Court passed Roe v. Wade in 1973, legalizing abortion nationwide.”
Perhaps just a quibble over language but SCOTUS doesn’t “pass” anything. It is not a legislature no matter what it might think. They ruled that virtually every state legislature got it wrong and that banning abortion was unconstitutional. Kind of like gay marriage.

SCOTUS issued an opinion. We should treat it as such. Just an opinion.
