Bellotti v. Baird (1979)

In this 1979 decision, the High Court struck down a Massachusetts law requiring women under 18 to have parental or judicial consent to terminate a pregnancy. States are allowed to establish alternative procedures to determine the maturity of the minor but those proceedings must be confidential and expeditious. (Photo: GettyImages)
